Twitchy tail, jerky knee, flapping left ear.
She leaps to her right just as a boulder comes crashing down, a crater forming just where she had been less than a second ago. Her breath comes in wheezes and gasps, the pink mare’s legs feel like lead, but still she runs on.
Twitchy tail, right cheek twinge, itchy scalp.
Pinkie throws herself to the ground, another massive rock sailing just overhead before she takes off as fast as she can, the impossibly wide smile still plastered on her face. Even as she runs, her head tilts back to the old house and silo behind her, three ponies positioned around an older stallion, bandages and gauze all over.
Her smile falters for a moment before being forced back into place.
Twitchy tail, left thigh spasm, chest pain.
A hand made of rock slams just in front of her as she scrambles to stop, eyes wide in surprise. “Silly filly,” her voice is low, words barely rising above the rumbles and cracks of the gigantic hand that pried itself from the earth, more stones and clumps of dirt falling all around her.
“Gotta stop and leap backwards, not do a loop-de-loop, and not even sure where that one came from. I mean, c’mooon Pinkie it was obviously gonna go in front and not in the air.” She laughs with a harsh tone, blue eyes narrowing before she takes off again, further and further away from the farm.
The monstrous being continues to follow the bouncing pink pony, its only guide being the gold necklace, the blue stone, and the wide, wide, smile. It leaps towards the pink pony again, missing as it’s prey leaps to the side only to be tossed into the air by explosion of stone and gems that erupted from the weight of the monster.
Left ear flap, right eye twinge, right forhoove shudder, lip quiver.
She lands on her back with a moan of pain, sliding across the rocks a good distance before slowing enough to roll to her hooves and contine to run, her back covered in long red gashes. “Stop thinking about it! Just keep running, just keep moving.” She turns to stare at the monstrocity as it begins to piece itself back together, rock by rock.
“COME AND GET ME YOU BIG DUMB MEANIE PANTS! BLEEEEEEEHHHHHH!” Her tongue is flapping all around as she bounces up and down, the impossibly wide smile back on her face.
The golem replies with another earth quaking step, quickly closing the distance as she begins to run and bounce away.
“Keep moving Pinkie, c’mon, you can do it!” She yells out to herself, voice cracking as the smile begins to slip once again. “I can keep my sisters safe! OR MY NAME ISN’T PINKAMENA!” She dodges to the right, another grab just missing. “DIANE!” She leaps to the left and jumps as high as she can, landing on the other monstrous hand that slammed down just in front of her. “RESPONSABILI-” The hand moves too fast for her to handle, tossing her to the ground with a painful crack.
She tries to move again, urging her sugar-filled body to give her more and more. But, it’s no use, the leg is definitely broken, and her body is far too exhausted to run.
She raises her head, blue eyes meeting the clear sky up above before settling on the rock that formed itself together again. She feels her body quiver in what she thinks is fear, but the quivering and wiggling won’t stop, even as the beast raises its hand to deliver the final blow.
Pinkie’s shudders and twitches grow in force as a loud whistling rips through the rumble of the creatures movement. Its mishapen head crumbles as a pick pierces through it. Her tail twitches madly as the golem’s arm explodes in the middle, the enourmous hand falling towards her.
She grunts in pain as she’s tossed to the side and can’t stop the tears as her eyes meet two different sets of grey and purple. Her lip quivers again, her chest aches and she pulls them into a hug as the monstrosity falls to pieces beside them.
Pinkie Pie stares up at her sisters for what seems like forever before breaking the silence. “H-hi Inky, Blinky. L-l-l-long time no see, huh? D-didja miss your dear ol’ big sis?”
Her giggles and sobs echo for miles around as two pair of hooves wrap around her neck in a right embrace.
This was really cool! I loved the action in this, it was really exciting. Pinkie was simultaneously badass using her Pinkie Sense and also completely in character as she taunted the golem as it chased her. And the ending where she finally reunites with her sisters and they successfully take down the golem is touching. Great work!
