Earth, the foundation of all living creatures in Equestria. Wind, The bipolar force that greets you in either a gentle breeeze or a raging whirlwind. Water, a crystal like liquid that is essential for life; but at the same time, can bring sorrow and death. Fire, another bipolar force that can comfort you with its heat or scorch your soul and temptations. Light, a purifying beacon of hope that can strikes down the wicked. Dark, An ominous presense that blankets over Equestria that penetrates fearsome thoughts into the minds of everypony. These are the 6 most powerful Elements in all of magic. On their own, these elements are powerful; together, they're unstoppable. These powers have not come together, that is until this fateful day...
Deep in the Frozen wastes of Northern Equestria, a high class looking dragon wandered chattering his teeth together loudly from the cold. The scaly reptile had been wandering the wastes for several days with no food or water but various shelters in caves. With his leader frozen in stone for the rest of eternity, Tricky had now lost everything; his leader, his element of Insanity, his mind and also, his body heat.
"G-g-g-g-gotta f-ffff-f-find some shelt-t-t-errrrrr!" The cold hearted dragon said behind his clattering jaws. Suddenly, he saw something up in the distance, a cave and with the sight of that cave, Tricky's eyes lit up like fireworks. The unstable dragon took off running as fast as he possibly could to the cave. Unbeknownst to him though, Tricky hit a large patch of ice before the cave entrance and began to slide into the cave at high speed; coming to a crashing halt after running with a cave wall. "At least I'm out of the cold frigid fields." Tricky sdaid to himself. "What in the name of Celestia is this?" The mentally deranged beast asked as he looked up and saw 4 different coloured orbs, red, green, blue and yellow being guarded by two different statues. The first showed an alicorn with a black gem in its chest while the other was an alicorn with a white gem in its chest. "Jackpot." Tricky said silently as he closed his eyes and began to slowly raise his arms up above his head. The dragon sorcerer chanted some kind of spell in a very low tone of voice as his hands began to glow a dark purple. Tricky then shot a small burst of fire at his two claws and clenched them together only to open his claws at each of the two statues. A bright light emitted from each of the statues as they started to move. Not being able to see what was going on, Tricky stood there trying his hardest to see what was going on while at the same time avoiding going blind. When the arroy of light dimmed down, Tricky opened hius eyes and was shocked to see what stood before him; two alicorns. The first Alicorn was a white mare with radiant yellow eyes and a flowing bright yellow mane; similar to Princess Celestia. The other Alicorn though confused Tricky as this Alicorn was a Stallion with red eyes, a black mane and a dark red scar across his right eye.
"What happened?" The white Alicorn asked in a confused tone.
"It appears that we have been freed." The stallion said ominously. The two Alicorns looked at the deranged Tricky with looks of confusion and hatred.
"Stay back you pathetic ponies! I have magic!!!" Tricky shouted in defense. The red eyes stallion was preparing to charge at Tricky for his durogatory terms but the pony calmed him down.
"Allow us to introduce ourselves. My name is Aurora and this is my brother Nightwing." The Alicorn introduced herself
"Wait a minute, you're brother and sister?" Tricky asked.
"Yes." Nightwing replied. "We were locked away in this chamber thousands of years ago waiting to be freed. However the spell we were placed under was supposed to erase our memories forever. That pathetic disgrace of a magician Starwhirl the Bearded seems to have underestimated my strength as I remember everything as clear as day."
"Brother, you remember everything!" Aurora questioned to her older sibling. "Please tell me."
"I'm afraid I can not sister." Nightwing responded. "You'll just have to trust me."
"OK my brother. What are we supposed to do." The white mare asked.
"First." Nightwing started. "In our mission to rule Equestria, we have to assemble the crucial elements."
Elsewhere in Equestria...
"Alright everypony!!" The drill sergeant shouted. "This race will determine who makes the cut for the weather control team! GO!" The sarge screamed as a group of Pegasi all took off into a massive stream of clouds. "Inferno! Typhoon!! Get out there!!" Sarge exclaimed as he looked at the two Pegasi.
"Sir we've already proved ourselves to you." A grey colt with his mane and tail in a puffy "cloud-like" style whined.
"Typhoon's right Sarge. We're your ace students." The other Pegasus, a bright orange colt with red eyes and a "fire-like" mane and tail stated. "Why exactly do we have to do this stupid test if we are at the top of your class?"
"Because it will show your work ethic Inferno." Sarge responded calmly. "Weather teams all across Equestria aren't gonna hire you in you act the way you are acting right now. NOW GET OUT THERE!!" The sergeant angrily shouted.
"Gee Sarge, are you jealous of us or something?" Inferno fired back.
"What is that supposed to mean Private!?" Sarge wondered.
"Inferno, what are you doing?" Typhoon whispered to his best friend.
"What it means is that you're just jealous that Typhoon and myself can do in 20 seconds what you couldn't do in 20 minutes and that is fly from Cloudsdale to Canterlot to Ponyville and then back to Cloudsdale." The cocky stallion screamed.
"I hope you said your good-byes because Inferno and Typhoon, YOU HAVE BEEN DISMISSED AND BANNED FROM CLOUDSDALE!!" Sarge yelled so loud that the entire academy heard.
"But, what did I do?" Typhoon reasoned.
"Fine! I didn't need your stupid academy anyway Sergeant Dipshit! C'mon Typhoon, let's get outta here!!" Infermo screamed. Typhoon silently got up and started to follow Inferno. The two Pegasi left the weather training center and flew down to Ponyville.
Deep in a forest, several lumberjack ponies were cutting down trees to use for houses, firewood and other assorted wooden products. Being a unicorn lumberjack was easy work; all you needed to do was use your magic to fire up the chainsaw and cut; however if you were an Earth pony, work was much more difficult. For an Earth pony by the name of Terra, she found that out the hard way.
"Terra, I want all those trees taken down!" The foreman shouted. "This is your first and only warning. If I have to tell you one more time, you're fired! Got it?"
"Yes sir." Terra answered subtlely. "How the hay am I supposed to cut down these trees?" Terra started to think of something then an idea jumped into her head. "If I can't CUT them down, I have no choice but to KNOCK them down!" Terra exclaimed as she turned around and bucked her hind legs as hard as she possibly could. The tree began to wobble back and forth. "It's working!" The pony shouted in surprise. A brief gust of wind however caused the tumbling tree to fall the wrong way and landed on the foreman's cabin; crushing it immediately.
"TERRA!!" The agitated Foreman shouted. Terra let out a brief sigh.
"I'll get my things." The Earth pony silently said as she walked towards the exit with her head hung low.
The hot sun was beating down on everypony and everypony was trying their best to keep cool. A light blue unicorn stood outside with a stand set up with several bottles of water.
"Water!! Ice cold refreshing water here!!" The unicorn called out as she held up a bottle of the clear liquid with her magic.
"I'm terribly thirsty." A cyan Pegasus said as she snatched the water, opened it up and guzzled the entire bottle of all it's liquid. "Aaaaah! Much better."
"Excuse me." The unicorn said as she pointed to a small bucket on her stand.
"Oops. Hehe sorry!" The flyer replied as she looked around for some change to give the unicorn. "Aw hayseed! I knew I should have grabbed my wallet before I left the house this morning." Hearing this, The blue unicorn simply smiled; trying to hide her disappointment.
"That's perfectly fine Rainbow." She lied behind clenched teeth.
"Thanks. I'll pay ya back later... Uh... What's your name again?" Rainbow Dash asked.
"Ah. I'll pay you back later OK Rain?"
"Yeah. Take care." Rain responded as she watched Rainbow fly off into the sky. "Damn it! It's the third customer I've had that hasn't paid!! Well if nopony is gonna give me any money, I'll just have to take some." Rain schemed as she looked across the street at Sugar Cube Corner and she trotted into it. Upon entry, she was greeted by none other than Pinkie Pie.
"Good morning Rain! Welcome to Sugar Cube Corner!! How are you doing?" The cheerful bundle of joy greeted.
"Hi Pinkie." Rain grunted as she pushed her way passed the pink pony in frustration.
"Are you alright?" Pinkie asked.
"Never been better." Rain replied. "As you can tell, I'm in a terrible mood. Get me something special; and make it snappy!" The light blue unicorn shouted at Pinkie Pie who immediately took off into the kitchen to bake something. Once Pinkie left, Rain got up and snuck her way over to the cash register on the front desk and opened it. The register made an audible "KA-CHING" noise upon opening.
"Rain, is everything alright?" Rain heard Pinkie ask from the kitchen. The poor unicorn quickly grabbed as much money as she could carry and ran out of the door; unknowingly bumping into Twilight Sparkle.
"Oh hi Rain, What are you doing at Sugar Cube Corner?" Twilight asked. "Shouldn't you be at your water stand?"
"I don't know Twilight. Everypony just walks by it without considering buying some." Rain said with an innocent smile plastered on her face.
"Rain, are you hiding something?" The purple mare asked.
"Me? Hide something from you? Nah!! You're like the smartest mare in Ponyville." Rain said as she backed away from Twilight slowly; oblivious to the alicorn who was standing behind her. "I'm not too sure about you but I gotta go back home and get some more ice cold water for my stand? OK? Bye!" Rain turned around and looked straight up at Princess Celestia; who had a look of disappointment etched on her face. "Oh um... Princess Celestia!! What a coincidence! Is there anything I could help you with?"
"As a matter of fact there is Rain, I want you to return the money you stole from the Cakes." The Princess spoke with a serious demeanor.
"So you were hiding something Rain!?" Twilight shouted; causing everypony to look at the three mares that stood in the middle on the center market.
"Guess I have nothing else to hide don't I" Rain sadly said as she used her magic to levitate the money that she had stolen back to Sugar Cube Corner. Afterwards, Celestia pointed with her hoof instructing Rain to leave Ponyville. Not wanting to fear the consequences of disobedience, Rain slowly walked out of Ponyville.
"Hey Rain! Come back! I finished baking your cake!" Pinkie Pie shouted as she walked up next to Twilight who stopped the Earth pony with her hoof and only shook her head; causing Pinkie Pie's smile to be replaced with a frown. Everypony glared at Rain who began to cry softly in shame. As Rain exitted Ponyville, she was approached by an Earth pony who was coming out of the forest.
"Hey there!" She called out. Rain didn't answer but looked in her direction to show she had acquired the attention. "Why the long face?" She asked as she trotted up beside the unicorn.
"Just got banished from Ponyville for attempting to steal some money from the Cakes." Rain explained her crime.
"That's tough. Were you trying to make some money? Oh I'm Terra by the way." Terra introduced herself.
"Yeah I had a water bottl4e stand set up but nopony bought some and those who did didn't pay me back." Rain yelled.
"Yeah I've had a tough day as well. I got fired from the lumberjack foreman for ruining his cottage." Terra said with her head hung low.
"Oh look, we got two cryponies! Get a hold of yourselves!" Terra and Rain saw two Pegasi come down from the sky.
"Now who the hay do you think you are?" Rain shouted.
"I'm Inferno; the only Pegasus from Cloudsdale to be kicked out of Weather Control Academy. This is my friend Typhoon." Inferno said with confidence.
"What did you get kicked out of that for?" Terra asked.
"I told Sergeant Blowhard to go fuck himself!" The orange colt replied.
"Wow! That takes guts. Nicely done." Rain held her hoof out which Inferno responded by pressing his hoof against Rain's
"I just noticed something. We all got kicked out of something." Terra schemed.
"Yeah! We were wronged!" Typhoon shouted.
"Hey you four, I here you were all wronged by various ponies and stallions." Everypony looked to see a shadowy figure standing at the edge of the Everfree Forest. "If it is vengeance that you seek, please tdo as I say and follow me." Not seeing any other possible option, Rain led the group into the forest following the figure. After walking through the forest for about 20 minutes, Rain, Terra, Typhoon and Inferno all stood before a dark cave and walked into it to see Nightwing and Aurora standing around 4 gems.
"Welcome to your new beginning." Nightwing hissed. "Join us everypony; and get back at those who ruined your lives."
