Content Warning: Violence, Blood.

The scene opens on Rarity in the gem fields, digging for new rare gems for her collections. As happens in the original episode, the Diamond Dogs emerge from the ground and drag her, kicking and screaming, into the earth.

The camera descends into the lower caverns where Rarity is being held captive. Surrounded by Diamond Dogs, she takes a moment to compose herself. She straightens her mane, checks her hooves, takes a breath to steady herself and says, "Apologies for such an undignified display, gentlemen. In the heat of the moment, I simply forgot what I was."

"A lady?" The lead Diamond Dog helpfully offers.

A letterbox close-up on Rarity's eyes as they narrow, "A killing machine, darling."

She turns and spears the nearest dog through the throat with her horn before kicking out and connecting with the head of another, caving its skull beneath her hooves. The remaining Diamond Dog backs away, paws up in surrender and pleading. Rarity follows him off screen as a magic spell charges in her horn.

The camera remains fixed on the cave wall to the sound of a magic blast, a chainsaw, and multiple explosions that overlay terrified and agonized screams. The sounds abruptly cut out and the visible wall is painted in a splash of blood.

The scene cuts to the Carousel Boutique, where Rarity sits calmly, drenched in blood and humming to herself as she polishes one of the many visible gems she has brought home from the caverns. The camera cuts across to the rest of the Mane Six who are standing open-mouthed in horrified silence.

End.

 

So this has been circling in my head at work for the past four hours and I can only hope to free myself by passing its curse onto you. I don't know where it came from, if I invented it or saw it long ago and it just now resurfaced. Maybe I've posted it before?

If you know of another source don't hesitate to tell me. I'd like the reassurance that it's not a creation of my overworked and under-rested brain.
