Time Traveling Kids of the Mane Six! Chapter 52Chapter 52: Approaching Shadow Scorching flames engulfed the surrounding forest, their yellow inferno licking and snapping and popping everything it touched. Birds cawed and screamed above while creatures below them scrambled to escape the approaching blaze. Smoke bellowed through the upper trees, blocking the warmth and light of the sun. Only a hellish nightmare remained of this section of the Everfree forest.Andromeda watched the destruction with fury. Her pupils were blacker than ash. Her sunset eyes burned brighter than the very flames they gazed upon. Her white teeth were clenched before she let out a blood-curdling scream. Her anger continued to fuel the fire, turning the nearest tree into a white flash.“Andi! What are you doing?” a familiar voice called from behind her.It was not Tempest, like before. This time it was her mother, Twilight. The purple mare stood fast, her face with a look of concern, but her body braced for resistance.“GET AWAY FROM
Time Traveling Kids of the Mane Six Ch. 51 PreludeChapter 51 Prelude: (spoilers for first-time readers) Everything happened so fast.There wasn’t anything that could have been done.Life itself seemed to come to a screeching halt for Andromeda, held up in perpetual slow-motion while her friends and mother carried the weakened bodies of Orion, Peach, and Bucky.Quiet.Such dizzying quiet!Andromeda couldn’t tell if she was breathing or not. It didn’t matter.All she knew was that everything in her ached.“Get the doctor! Now!” she heard her mother scream to Rainbow Dash, who had only just arrived.“But what if he finds out-““I said NOW!!!” Twilight’s reddened face shouted again.As Twilight’s eyes followed her friend’s exit, her ears picked up Bucky’s gurgling coughs.

Time Traveling Kids of the Mane Six! Chapter 50 Chapter 50: Paradise… L0ST (part II) Andromeda stumbled down the stairs, blinded by the tears that blurred her vision. Her heart quivered silently yet so painfully. She could feel it rising towards her throat. There was no breathing, but there was sobbing; a sobbing so heavy that her lungs burned. She wanted to drop to the ground and lie there for all of eternity, but something in her wouldn’t let her. The air itself felt like poison. She had to get out. She had to breathe. Andromeda dashed through the house and threw open the front door. She had no idea what she was doing or where she was going, nor could she think.

Time Traveling Kids of the Mane Six! Ch. 49Chapter 49: Paradise… Lost (PART I) Deep within Twilight Sparkle’s basement, and late into the night, two mares toiled long and hard on the complexly flawed time travel spell. Minutes felt like hours, and hours like days while they clawed at the missing puzzle pieces of the magical formulas.
