The Farlands - 1x1 (Jello and GH)

Post  Green Hornet on Sun May 27, 2012 1:13 am

A strange disease is ravaging Equestria, and not even the Princesses are safe. They too have fallen ill and have sent some of her remaining healthy guards to find a cure in a place known only as the Farlands to the Equestrians. Our heroes will travel across unknown territory to reach their destination, whatever that might be, and will probably meet plenty of ponies along the way.

History is written by the victor.

You may think Equestria is a land of just rainbows and friendship, but there is more to it than you know.

The Princesses had many foes to battle. Some, such as Discord, many knew of. But there are others that have all but faded away into history.


One fateful day, a strange alicorn requested an audience with the princesses.

The Storm King was history's name for him.
He had traveled from the far north, past the border mountains of the Equestria country.
Bringing with him stories of a grand, far off land, called The Endland, he had come to talk and trade with the country of Equestria.


The princesses warmly welcomed this strange king, showing the customs of their countries, exchanging trinkets. It was a rather pleasant thing.

Until....


Shortly after the arrival of the Storm King, ponies started falling ill. All with the same symptoms, and all from the areas which the Storm King had visited.

The Elder Princess, desperate for a solution, pleaded for the Storm King for help, but he had no idea what this plague was, and had no solution to offer.

The sickness spread quickly, no stallion, mare or foal was immune to it's spread.
The Equestrians demanded action be taken. Enraged that the Storm King would bring such a sickness upon them, and then offer no help, they resorted to the only thing they thought reasonable retaliation.

WAR.

Equestria made the first move, taking the Endlanders by surprise.
But it didn't take long for the Endladers to retaliate.



The war lasted for a long time. Much longer than anypony cared to count.

There were heavy casualties for both sides, and the fighting still went on even after the plague had died out, and declared "gone".

Fighting. And fighting. And Fighting.

Until Celestia took matters into her own hooves.

Facing the Storm King and his armies alone, she summoned the full power of her sun...

And that was the end.

The tales of The Storm King's Endland quickly faded into legend, and then nothing more than children's tales.
Of course, what other Alicorns existed other than our two glorious princesses?



In seeking truth you have to get both sides of a story.

Steel dismounted a small flying carriage pulled by two pegasi. That was as far as they could take him, especially in the condition they were in. They were the least sick of all of the guard pegasi but even they were in bad condition, their movements sluggish and difficult, and Steel was afraid to look them in the eye.

The two managed to drag the carriage out of sight, so Steel figured that he shouldn't worry about them. He had more important things on his mind- his duty to the princesses.


"Steel Sword, Princess Luna is..." Steel's ears perked up as a fellow royal guard called his name. The other white stallion coughed and shook his head before continuing. "Princess Luna... requests your presence in the... royal..." He gently tapped a hoof on the ground, as if quietly cursing his weakness.

Steel had just nodded, leaving his post as the other unicorn took it up. Not that he would do very much good at that position if anything were to happen.

Luna hadn't been in the greatest condition herself, but I will spare you the details. Long story short, Steel was sent out on an adventure based on an old pony tale. He doubted its merit, but there was really no other option at this point, and he wasn't about to ignore an order from the princess. Especially not a sick, dying princess.

Cheerfully cantering through the trees, a translucent pegasus hardly made a sound as he wandered aimlessly about in the seemingly endless woods.
He wasn't sure how long he had been hanging around in these woods. It was less than a month, or maybe it wasn't... He didn't really care to keep track, it's not like he had anything important to do.

Slowing down to a stop, he looked up and drew in a long breath, not really accomplishing anything, before stretching out his wings and taking off faster than any normal pegasus should, and stopped slightly above tree level, lazily flapping his wings out of habit as he gazed out across the forest. There usually wasn't much activity in these woods, not even very many forest animals lived here. It probably was something to do with all those weird ponies living just over the mountains, he guessed, drifting along with the breeze as he thought to himself.

Steel lifted his head towards the sky, fixing his eyes on the sun for as long as he dared. It wasn't like he could tell the time with it anymore- Celestia was too sick to move the sun, and Luna wasn't much better. She only moved the sun down when the time for night had come- and even she had needed help for the past few days. It wouldn't be long until-

He shook his head and continued walking, hooves making nearly no sound as the ground changed from green grass to... greener grass. The place around him seemed wilder, untamed. No ponies had been around here for a long time, at least as far as he could tell.

His horn glowed blue as he pulled his helmet off with magical energy. Wouldn't be needing this for now. He settled its right edge in a small gap in his armor plating, a little area he had left open to put things he didn't want to levitate. Shaking his head to rearrange his mane, he trotted along, enjoying the nice breeze and the pleasant atmosphere, trying to take his mind off of...

Oh, look a river.

Somehow, Cavi had ended up upside-down and was now watching the clouds float by above while drifting along with the breeze, front legs folded over his chest.
After several minutes (at least that's what he thought) of drifting, his tail managed to get caught in a rather high branch, jerking him to a stop and back to reality. Glaring at the branch that had so rudely interrupted his day-dreaming, Cavi concentrated for a moment, before waving his tail through the branch it had been caught on. Small wisps of smokey tail substance caught momentarily on the branch, before returning to the form of his tail.

Content with his small accomplishment, Cavi nodded to himself and looked down at the ground. Somehow he had managed to float all the way to a river, which was odd because he hadn't remembered any rivers in the area of the forest he thought he was in. Oh well!
He drifted down to the riverbank, being careful not to actually step in the water. Water and Cavi did not agree with each other.

Steel trotted up to the edge of the river, glancing down at the nicely paced current... perfect to cool off. He magically levitated his helmet and placed it on the ground, before the rest of his armor lit up in a tealish glow, straps undoing themselves and pieces of the heavy plating being placed neatly on the ground. He took a few steps into the river and lay down, lazing in the current, carefully lifting his head over the surface of the water.

He had just begun to relax when he noticed something in the corner of his eye. Was that... a pony? He lunged out of the water, hastily shaking heavy droplets from his fur. He brought his sword to his side, eyes fixed on the strange pegasus that he had just noticed. Augh, Steel. You need to pay more attention... He inwardly bashed himself as he spoke. "Who are you? State your name and intention."

Cavi's ears perked up at the noise of another pony that he completely failed to notice. He turned to look at him, and instinctively took a small step back from the edge of the river. This pony had water on him, and usually when ponies were wet, they shook themselves off, and that gets water everywhere.
"What, me?" He asked rather stupidly, seeing as there were probably no other ponies around for miles. "I'm Cavington! Who are you?" he answered, completely ignoring the "intention" part of the question.

Steel paused for a moment, taken off guard by the pony's goofy demeanor. He casually flipped his blue mane, causing the messy mass to take somewhat of a normal form. He lowered his sword a bit and cleared his throat. "I'm Steel Sword, soldier of the Canterlot Royal Guard." He spoke clearly and without a trace of emotion in his voice. "I serve Princess Celestia. Who do you work for?"

"I uh, don't really work for anyone..." Cavi answered, looking down at the ground and shuffled his hooves. "You said you're from Canterlot? Where is that?" He said a second later, looking pack up at the strange unicorn and tilted his head. "It doesn't sound familiar." Although, nothing ever sounded familiar to Cavi nowadays.

Steel shook his head, confused as to how this pony could not know what Canterlot was. "Canterlot, location of the royalty in Equestria." He spoke, magically placing his armor back on his body and discarding the sword on the ground. He had given up on the idea that this pegasus was a threat. "What country do you belong to?" He asked as he placed his helmet on his head and pulled some straps on his armor. "Quickly, if you please. I must be leaving on official business."

"Hah, royalty?" Cavi said, fluttering over to a nearby stump in front of Steel and tilting his head to the side. "Where I come from, The Farlands, we don't have royalty... But I've seen a princess before! She was pretty." He said, drifting off in his thoughts from the past.

Steel blinked. "You don't have royalty...?" He paused and shook his head, strapping the last piece of his armor on and placing his sword back at his belt. "I must be on my way. It was a pleasure meeting you." He made a quick salute and turned to leave, nearly falling right into the river. He had forgotten that he had to cross it again. Focusing, he encased his legs in a blue magic and walked across the river with ease.

"Where are you going?" Cavi asked, watching carefully as the unicorn walked over the river with the help of his magic. "Maybe I can help!" He offered, springing up off the stump into the air and floating along behind Steel, this time making sure he used his wings properly, as some ponies were put off by the whole 'floating pony' thing.

Steel glanced behind him once he had safely crossed the river. "No. This is official royal business, and certainly not yours." He began walking away, past the first river and on to the second, further north. It was rather nice out, he wasn't looking forward towards walking through the desert, though...

"Awww, c'mon! Do you even know where you're going?" he asked, landing behind him and following a few paces behind. "I can help! Really!"

Steel paused for a minute, contemplating the offer, and then nodded. "If you know the area, that would be a great help, and I was getting kind of lonely." He nodded again. "Alright, you can come. You've got to be careful, though. It probably won't be safe, but you'll be doing a great deed for the ponies of Equestria."

"Yay!" Cavi said, bouncing along behind Steel, happy to be involved and have somepony to accompany. He didn't like being all alone in the forest, and before that... well, he didn't like to remember.
"Alright, so, where was it you were going again? You never told me." He asked, happily trotting up alongside Steel.

"I... don't really know." Steel shrugged. "Just... north. I'm trying to find a place that I heard of in a legend..." He sighed, realizing how crazy this sounded. "Just... a place, far to the north, past some desert of some sort I believe. In the mountains, I think... We're looking for an ancient kingdom, it probably wouldn't have been inhabited for a long time. If it exists, that is."

"Hmmm, well, to get to there, you have to go across the... uhhh..... Feild-ish lands? I forgot what they were called" Cavi said, almost embarrassed. He often forgot things, even things he was sure he knew as he went to say them, but when the time came to actually SAY them, he just couldn't, as if he never knew in the first place.
