Taking a deep breath, the white unicorn imagined the air
swirling around her, the cold bite of snow on her coat, the
sky open but not too open? and she vanished, reappearing
just above the rope in the air. Falling down, she grabbed the
rope with four hooves and clung tightly to it She looked up,
towards the enorrn ous head. The eyes were narrowed in
focus and rage. "ForTwilight!" Rarity cried, and began to
shimmy up the rope.
She moved as fast as she could,though this was hindered
by her complete lack of experience shimmying up ropes.
Fear and courage combine to make powerful motivators,
however, so she climbed, clutching the rope tightly between
her hooves, moving as fast as she could. Further and further
she rose, higher and higher. The snake kept its two right
eyes on her, but what could it do?
Suddenly, the green eyes blazed, flashing with evident light.
A surge of green traveled down the rope. Rarity‘s horn
shimmered, putting up a simple barrier. Fortunately, the
magic was wild and uncomplicated, though incredibly
strong. Still, she was able to avoid it It kept traveling down
the rope,though, until it reached Applejack, where it hit her
through herteeth and into her body. The orange earth pony
was standing ﬁrm quite well, so she barely felt it, but it was
enough to make her twitch, and the twitch broke her stance.
She was ripped out of the ground, and she had to let 90 of
the rope hastily before herteeth were yanked out. The world
snake broke free of the cage of lightning around it, sending
another green pulse out, this time into the air. it rose rapidly
"Rarity!" Rainbow Dash cried.
