Through the depths of space, a red galleon was flying towards a bright blue planet. At the ship’s center sail was a stylized key without any teeth. It had an octagonal bow with two slits in it forming eyes. At the end of it were two cutlasses crossing each other forming an X. Six ponies sat within it, two of each subdivision of pony. They were all sitting in the haul of the ship. A pink earth pony shot her head up in attention.
“We’re here!” she squealed in childish glee. “We’re finally here! We’ve reached Gia.” A white unicorn and an orange earth pony with a stetson on her head tapped a few buttons on a control panel.
“Don’t believe her?” the unicorn asked. “She’s usually right about these things.”
“I’d prefer to see it myself,” the Stetson wearing pony replied. With the press of another button, a screen in front of them illuminated itself. Just as their companion predicted, they were closing in on the planet. Many of them gasped.
“My,” a yellow pegasus said. “What a wonderful planet. It’s inhabitants must live comfortably.”
The white unicorn chuckled. “It’s just like you to say that. All I see is a sparkling a jewel. All mine for the taking.”
“That would be the first thing on your mind, isn’t it?” the earth pony asked. A cyan Pegasus walked up a set of stairs to her companions.
“Who really care about that,” she said. “What we want is there. The Greatest Treasure in the Universe.”
“Hmmm,” the unicorn hummed. “Why act all showy? I know you’re excited.” A purple unicorn moved her hands in a chest full of shattered gems. All of them gave off a warm glow.
“But is it really there?” the pink pony asked. “They say that it’s worth as much as the universe itself. I could buy all the cakes in space if I wanted to!”
“I guarantee that it’s there,” the purple unicorn said. Every pony had a smile grow on their face. The monitor beeped and all of them turned their attention to it. The Stetson pony pushed a few of the console’s buttons. The image changed to a number of metallic ships rising over the horizon of the planet’s moon.
“The Empire’s fleet!” the orange pony exclaimed. “We’ve been found!”
The cyan Pegasus turned to her purple friend. “What’s the plan, Twi? This could ruin us.” In response, she held up one of the crystals.
“Oh my!” the yellow Pegasus said. “Fighting?”
“Of course,” the purple unicorn said. She stood up from her seat with a mad grin on her face. “This is what pirates do.”
The influence of Donny’s Boy grows, infecting others! This was an amusing little skit; Rarity being so entranced by The Greatest Treasure in the Universe was almost perfectly fitting, and the other ponies fit their roles well. I’m certain the pony pirates will prevail!
