Something soft was under her, and something warm was on top of her. the room she opened her eyes to was huge to her as she'd been living in a cell with barely any room to move. the room was brown, and a carpet covered the floor. She could hear the slap of water against the hull of the ship. a door opened, and a pink unicorn came in with a silver tray.
"Good morning. You must be starving. I brought you some food." the unicorn said.
the Alicorn shrank away from the unicorn out a fear. All the unicorns she'd seen had been further experimenting on her.
"It's okay. I'm Twilight. I won't hurt you. Do you have a name?" Twilight asked.
"I don't got one." the Alicorn muttered.
"You must have a name." Twilight soothed, "What do others call you?"
"They call me an experiment, or that alicorn." the Alicorn felt as if she could trust this unicorn. so far, the unicorn had not tried to harm her.
"Your symbol is very pretty. I've never seen a raised teardrop with a sapphire in it before. You know what? I'm going to call you Tiffany just like the High Queens name. do you like that?" Twilight asked.
"Tiffany. I like that." Tiffany smiled.
"Here is some breakfast." Twilight set the tray down and opened up the dishes to reveal eggs, bacon, toast, and hash browns with a glass of milk. Tiffany had never eaten so well in her life before. She downed everything on the tray. after her meal, she asked if she could get up and walk around.
She met the rest of her new family and quickly adjusted to her new life. Tiffany and Seastar became best friends and they both loved to torment their older brothers all of the time. Tiffany soon took to calling Twilight and Seascape mom and dad. her coat which had been a lackluster gray, whitened into a soft pure white. eating good food helped her double in size so she looked more like a teen that she was instead of a baby pony. her hair grew long and beautiful and her wings strengthened from constant use and grew bigger. even her horn grew longer.
"Why Tiff, you've done some growing." Seascape noticed one fine morning as they prepared to dock in Dream Valley.
"I have, haven't I?" Tiffany checked herself over, "I really have grown!" May be now they won't recognize me!
A scream from further out in the harbor caught their attention. Six long tentacles had wrapped themselves around a small schooner and it's crew was having a hard time fighting them off.
"Seastone." Tiffany growled.
"Dad! Shouldn't we go help them?" Salty asked.
"Tiffany, what is it? who is Seastone?" Seascape asked.
"You don't want to know!" Tiffany launched into the air, "I'll help them!"
"Wait, Tiffany! your powers are still developing!" Seastar joined her, "I'll help you out!"
"Hey wait a minute here! it's no fair! they fly and we have to wait until this tub gets over there to help out!" Barnacle looked up from scrubbing the deck, "It's just not fair!"
"I'm on it!" Twilight took off for the wheel house without waiting for her husbands command. Seascape was already airborne, following his daughters.
Tiffany focused her magic and felt the now familiar surge of energy rushing through her body. so far, she had mastered electricity and was learning how to wink. she fired a bolt of electricity into the water near the ship. Seastar fired off ball after ball of darkness mixed with water at one of the legs.
suddenly, the legs released their prey, and a very pony like head rose from the water.
"Sister, we meet again. come home with me. we miss you." Seastone let out a cackling hiss.
"No! I am not going back to that place again! I am free now! I've got a family that loves me!" Tiffany shot back.
"You are a demon like us, sister." Seastone replied, "You have to go back!" with that, she reached up with a tentacle to grab Tiffany, but Seastar drove it back.
"Nobody harms my sister!" She cried.
"You call her sister, but do you know what she is?" Seastone asked, "She is a demon like me. already the evidence shows. look at her feet. do you know of any pony with black hooves ringed in fur? check above her eyes. there will be two black horns growing. She'll kill you all." With that, Seastone sank back into the waters.
"I'm not a demon! I have no idea what she was talking about!" Tiffany screamed.
"I believe you. you don't even have horns over your eyes." Seastar said.
Minutes later, the boat arrived. Seascape had gone to check on the crew of the other ship. they were all fine but shaken. their schooner wasn't too badly damaged, but it would need a week of dry dock time for repairs. they returned to their ship.
"Tiff, do you know that thing?" Barnacle broke the silence.
"Yes, I do." Tiffany sighed.
"Care to explain?" Seascape asked.
"She's an experiment, like me. We were created in a laboratory prison by Acid Fire. I am the only one who has escaped. I hoped they wouldn't recognize me, but they did. I have no idea who my parents are, or who I really am. That place was a living hell. they kept us in tiny cells no bigger then the supplies closet on our ship. we were fed moldy bread and dirty water every few days. a lot of us starved to death. every so often, they took us back to the lap for more experimentation. they even tried to get us to reproduce. Acid Fire is a cruel pony. Please, don't send me back there!" Tiffany sobbed.
"Why would we do that? You are a member of this family, and we will all fight to protect you, always." Twilight soothed.
"I ain't losen my partner in crime now, aren't I?" Salty asked, "who else is going to take the blame for me?"
Tiffany smiled, "Acid Fire's greatest experiments are the demon ponies. Seastone is one of them. there is her father, Kraken, and her baby sister, Sealight, who are all octoponies. then there's Shark, a shark pony, and then there's the two dolphin ponies, a mother and daughter, Satanica and Lucifina. finally, there is an alicorn, Black Dragon. he is their leader. They want me back but I won't go back, not ever."
"We will all protect you, sis." Seastar smiled, "We love you."
Ooh, the plot thickens! Poor Tiffany... Hope everything turns out alright for her!
Tiff and Salty...partners in crime. ;D
Ponies eat meat in your fanon?
Octoponies/Ponypusses/Ponypi are awesome. (They'd make an awesome PI breed. Only they aren't exactly pretty, so maybe they wouldn't be so popular. That or no one would be able to own one because they're just too AWESOME. >.>)
Not all ponies are herbivores. my horse, Bryon, his favorite foods are my grandmas peach cobbler and bacon. hence, thats were the bacon comes from. so yes, I have the ponies eating meat in my fandom. The octoponies are totally awsome!!!! note how each of my three octoponies represent a different breed of actual octopus? well okay, Kraken is based loosely on the kraken from a certain pirate movie. my six legged Seastone is based off a six legged octopus that I helped to raise during a summer job working in a aquarium. I'm not sure if it was a birth defect or an actual breed. I pretty much hand raised it into adulthood. Eight legged Sealight is based off on its tank mate, a young eight legged octopus found starving to death off the coast of washington. They were released together down off the coast of Oregon were there was plenty of food for them to thrive. I taught both octopi how to wave bye. it was cute. My boss didn't think it was so cute, but the tourists sure got a kick out of it. So now they live on in my story. my Dolphin ponies and shark pony are based loosely on the pokemon Vaporeon, which I'm hopelessly in love with. Every Eevee I get a hold of I always evolve into Vaporeon. Black Dragon is based off of a drawing done by my best friend, Whitney. In every story I've written about MLP, I always include a pony done by Whitney. it's my way of remembering her.
I grew up on a horse farm. My parents still own the farm. Bryon is a throughbred/standerbred cross. he is solid black with black hair. the only part of him that is not black is his right ear, which is white. I worked in the aquarium for three summers. it was alot of fun. I was in charge of making sure everything was fed on time.
I had a crazy earth science teacher in ninth grade. He told all sorts of crazy stories. And I'm pretty sure they were all true, cuz he was that type of guy, ya know? Anyway, one time he claims he leaned too far over the shark tank at some aquarium to get a picture...and wound up falling in. With fourteen sharks.
Neato about your bacon-eating horse. I didn't know that. Though they can't eat potatoes or strawberries, right? I heard those are poisonous for them... *sadistic plotbunny about some disgruntled G3 feeding the Core 7 strawberry shortcake hops into view* DANG PLOTBUNNIES!!!
You are right about horses being unable to eat strawberries. Horses are able to eat things like corn, hay, grain, barly, beets, and silage. Potatos, I'm not sure about. I always tell people when they catch sight of Bryon muching on bacon that he's just a throw back from a time when horses may have consumed meat. (Meat eating pony plot bunny hops by) I might be able to run with this idea!
