What Once Was -Chapter 4I had managed to follow Celestia without her noticing for a good while. She walked slowly, and hummed a sweet song. She stopped every once and a while to smell a flower, or say hello to a small animal. When she finally made it to the gazebo in the middle of the garden, where she would find Discord, she took a small breath and smiled even bigger.
“Celestia! I’m glad you’re here.” Discord had a smaller smile, but he looked pleased to see my sister. She giggled,
“Oh? And why is that.”
“I have made some serious headway. Come, take a look.” He said, motioning her to the bench within the gazebo. Her smile faded a little, and I groaned and smacked my hoof to my face. This was t
What Once Was - Chapter 3“1,100 years ago, Equestria was much like it was now. Peaceful. Celestia’s and my parents; our father Artemis, the King of the Sunset, and our mother, Arinna, the Queen of the Sunrise took care of most of the duties we have now, such as setting and rising the sun and moon…but Discord, took care of all the other royal duties, and was considered a Prince.

“Princess, I don’t mean to intrude, but may I ask something?” Twilight questioned, finally having stopped hiccupping bubbles.
“Sure, Twilight!” Celestia said, smiling.
“Well…what happened before? Before Discord became…bad.” She hesitated, she didn’t want to offend anyone…especially at the risk of being turned into something…unmentionable. The atmosphere became slightly uncomfortable as Celestia took a sip of her tea and bowed her head. Twilight fidgeted in
What Once Was - Chapter 1Twilight Sparkle walked into the Canterlot castle. She had been in here many times before, but never for something so casual as tea and lunch. She walked down the long hallway towards the back, where she was to find her teacher, Princess Celestia. When she walked into the room, she saw the room was empty. She looked at Spike,

“Positive Twilight. See?” Spike handed her the small scroll, which Twilight saw had seen she was in fact on time.
