The class stands in the citadel of the castle, facing the high-seated bench of the various Crystal Ponies as if they were on trial- and considering the sentence was death, they might as well have been! "Sister, please," Prince Zircon says, "Just because mother and father are out doesn't mean we're allowed to sentence children to death." The red Crystal Pony princess makes a mocking face with her mouth as her brother says so, flopping one of her hooves around. "Nya nya nya, well just because mother and father aren't here doesn't mean you can be the boss of me! No one's the boss of Princess Ruby, except her parents!" The blue princess coughs into her hoof. "There's also us, your sisters, who keep your actions and proposals from taking place unless a majority vote is reached." Ruby sighs, head flopping to the side. "Well duhh, but that doesn't mean you all are my bosses, we're, like, peers."

As the royalty speaks, the class is able to take in the interior of the room- The floor is made of stone, painted blue and arranged around a pedestal in the center. Four blue stone pillars stand in the positions of the ordinal directions, each of them looking like a fountain of stone ponies. Between the blue pillars, the walls are painted white. Behind the bench where the princesses were sitting, a great stained glass window was placed, enchanted to look and function as both a clock and a weather forecaster, the panes moving as if they were geometric liquid. The roof was simple, just a hexagonal dome, with no decorations beyond the gilt frame.

Skullheart takes his seat at the head of the table in an ebony chair with a glossy, smooth finish, the back higher than even his head, decorated int he likeness of a skeleton, with a wooden skull on top, mouth open as if in macabre laughter. "Strange to see such young creatures like yourself in my neck of the woods," he says, ladling soup into bowls of smooth obsidian, passing them down to the youngulates, "Did your father send you to collect twigs for the fire? Or did you get lost on the way to the grocery store?"

As he speaks and serves, one of the doors opens, and into the dining room walks an anthropomorphic bee woman, looking surprisingly strong in the arms and legs considering her insectoid origin. She looks down at Bang, Bonnie, and Rushin', then up at Skullheart. She points at them, and says, "What are these for? Fattening them up for the manticores?"

Rushin' stares at the intimidating figure before them, eyes wide as he takes in the terrifying lich and throne. He takes a whiff of the soup, apprehensively staring at it as he offers. "This isnt'... like, pony or whatever is it? Cause I don't mean to be rude or nuthin' but it kind of looks like a thing you'd do being a monkey skeleton."

"Actually we got kind a teleported or something by this evil sorceress my friend Bang let out, do you..."

>Fattening them up,
At the bee woman's comment, he pushes the soup away. "AHA! You made one fatal mistake, Skull-guy, and that was letting me in on your master plan. Well ya can't fatten me if I don't eat, can ya?"

"We were teleported here by a witch, we're trying to seek her out and slay her!... well... after we find our friends. We're sorta lost right now." He says, rubbing the back of his head with a hoof. He smiles as he sniffs the soup. "Thank you mister Skullheart!"

Just as bang was going to take his first taste of the soup, he suddenly stops with the sound of the door opening, listening to what she says before leaning closer towards Rushin' and whispering. "Hey, you don't think she means us do you?"

Flicker spits out a wad of gum.

["Do I?"] she mouths / breathes to Violet. ["Check it out."]

She kicks open the case, revealing a small, dismantled rifle. She quickly puts it together, then turns and fires a round through one of the stained-glass windows.

Then, she takes out her notepad. She writes "Death?" on it, then shows it to the princes and princesses, then shakes her head 'no'.

Bonnie bows her head with gratitude at the food offered, though slips more than a glance at what is the soup actually made of. The residents of this castle may have been as strange as what they ate for sure...

"Actually, mister Skullheart... we kind of didn't expect to end up here. We were on a school trip when this unicorn magician... eep" - she finishes prematurely and lowers her head as to not be seen so much over the table as the bee woman epresses her obvious displeasure and not-so-nice intentions at their presence.

Minty gives a loud yawn, clearly intent on interrupting their conversation.
"We're right here hearing you, ya know," she says with an unamused blinking.

The lower portion of her body shapes roughly into a filly pool shape and her upper torso leans back, putting her hooves behind her head and a tiny parasol sprouts up out of her head. She gives another yawn in the face of the threat of death.
"Listen, when you all are done being lovebirds and all, let me know. I'm taking a nap." She finishes this by making a small, goo cigarette form from her mouth. Sadly, lacking all the tobacco goodness like back in the museum.

"Hohoho, not a monkey. We're partially related, though. This chair is based on a human skeleton, though I carved it entirely out of wood. I once was human, and Mightyblade here is also a human." After you push the bowl away, he reaches forward and pushes it back towards you. "I wouldn't need to fatten you up at all. I'm a lich, not a witch. I don't keep manticores, either, I catch them myself when I need them."
>>23237052
The bee woman laughs at your cowering, putting her hands on her sizable hips. "Haha! Honey Rocks strikes terror into the heart of another victim!" Skullheart waits until she finishes laughing, then looks up and down at Bang, Rushin, and you. "Unicorn magician, you say? What was his name?"

>>23236984
Your bullet bounces off of 'some kind of energy shield' erected in front of the bench, ricocheting off the walls until it falls to the ground. The princess ponies stop arguing, and Ruby leans over and points at you with her hoof. "Haha! After the last time someone tried to shoot us, Momma and Poppa put up a shield! Don't think you can get away with it?" Miss Death Blossom comes up to you, pulling out her paddle again and giving you a whap on the rump. "Flicker, where do you think you are, Appleloosa?"
>>23237047
As you cower from the gunshot, the other students do the same.
>>23237065
Zircon laughs at your cuntiness, then looks up at Ruby. "Dear sister, please, you know children always get into accidents. Why not let them go?" At this point, the green crystal princess raises her hoof. "I'm fine with letting them go, or at least just giving them a room besides the dungeon, but I don't think them being young means they're not responsible. After all, Demiursa had to be banished with a magic wand created by the Wizardsmith, and he won't be able to make another one for some time. What'll we do until then?"

Flicker clears her throat in annoyance. "They threatened to kill us." she writes to Death Blossom.

Then, she realizes she CAN get away with it. She waves at the other children, then starts to walk to the door to just leave.

"Responsible? Me?" Minty bursts out laughing in her filly pool, the 'cigarette' falling into the 'water.' "I'm so irresponsible, I could make a second of your castles out of all the homework I haven't done." She gives a boastful laugh.

At the green princesses question of what to do, Minty looks away and tries to lower her voice, covering her mouth with a hoof and try to make it sound like somepony else speaking.
"I say we give them a big wad o' cash so they can buy candy and cigarettes."
Minty then quickly stares back with an innocent smile, acting like she didn't say/do anything.

Bonnie is certianly shaken from the words of both Skullherat and the... Honey Rock? Quite a nice name for someone so keen on scaring others...

Well, for "victims", they were treating them alright, she guessed...

"Um... D-demi... demiursa... her name actually" - she answers the big skelly with her ears laid flat.

"Demiursa! She sent us here after she got loose. She made one mistake bringing me here, that means I can still seek her out and bring her to justice!" He announces, making a small pose for just a moment before starting to eat his soup, not wanting to be rude and let it go cold.

Rushin' looks at the soup again, still more than a lil' apprehensive about eating it. He dips his head forward, sticking his hoof in it without the utensil and dabbles a bit of the material on his hoof, taking up to his muzzle to lick carefully.

His muzzle widens, and he pulls the soup forward to dive in face first and gobble it up. "Hey, this isn't half bad! Alrighty, cool, thanks." He keeps shoving it down his face as he speaks with his mouth full at intervals,

"So yeah, Demiursa, anything you can do about 'er?"

"Flicker, please, you seem smart but you've got to have some savviness," DB says, "Believe me, after years of reading books to children, I can tell you that the red one up there's just a hothead who's the self-proclaimed leader, the blue one's the calmer one who's the direct foil, and the green one's the smart one in the group. The other two are probably varying degrees of girly and fill niches the other three don't."

"Demiursa!" He says, slamming his hands on the table before rearing his head back, laughing with hysteria, "Ohh, I remember her! Oh, what a character, she was. I remember she'd come over regularly after she moved into the next valley over, and she'd be bragging about all the magical items she got, her generals, her projects, and I'd just be standing there as she ticked off the kind of things I'd had for ages and didn't need, and she was acting like she'd take over the world! Hoo, good to know she's back in the neighborhood, I haven't had a good neighbor in ages."

"Those are overdone, cliche tropes which occur only in fiction and have no practical application in the real world, Mrs. Death Blossom. Calling attention to them is called 'hanging the lampshade' or making an 'aside' to the audience."

Bonnie's eyes are saucers now, as her mind tries to process all that. She was very unsure whether to classify this Skullheart guy as a good or a bad one...

Well... least she could do was to ascertain the danger of her, being nearby... as much as she meant nothing good, she was their only link with the other world from this one now... The little filly tried to catch the Lich's drift, as to let him speak, interested more in her and his connections to this unicorn... than themselves.

"D... do you think she'll want to return to this nearby valley... mister Skullheart?"

"Well, it's her estate, I'd assume she'd want to move back. Not a lot of folks want me as a neighbor, the stench of death usually isn't very pleasant to be next to, especially since everything around here is valleys- when it blows over the mountains, it's going to be down in whatever it spills over to for a while. Would you like to go over to her castle, and see if you could give her a challenge? I wouldn't suggest it, personally, but what are the three of you going to do otherwise? Just you in this big world, and in the scary lands known as the Dark Country. Not a country, really, the Landowner's Association only came up with the name because no one could agree on the individual suggestions and we pulled something out of a magic hat."

She wasn't sure.

"I don't think we'd be in for a confrontation with her. She... wasn't really nice... but if she got into our world, maybe she left something that could tell us how to return there?

The town seems busy, as ponies brush past you and the others on their way to whatever they're doing. Fruit and vegetable stands line the streets, and there's occasionally odd passerby that don't fit the bill- sharks with arms and legs, tall red bipedal creatures with misshapen, muted forms, even giant insects dressed in suits. Music is played from speakers mounted on poles, setting the scene for a pleasant castle town. "Well, where are we going?"

If you wish to challenge her, I have no problem with it, and I'll even let Honey escort you." The bee woman turns her head to the side on confusion. "But I won't take any blame for, say, injuries or death that incur while you attempt to defeat her."

"I don't know if she'd want to go back. Once she fails at something, she hardly bothers with it again, and tries to do something else until she fails at that, too. I'd expect it'd take a few years before she feels like going 'round to 'conquering another world' again. Would you three be interested in helping me with something, instead?"

"We're not leaving you behind!" Miss DB says, picking you up under her leg, standing steadily on her back legs. "Prince and Princess Ponies, please, will you allow us to return home?"
"I'm afraid not," Prince Zircon says, "For all our disagreements, I have to admit that it is your responsibility to do something about Demiursa. Furthermore, we're unable to return you back to your world until our parents get back from outer space. You could try other places, I'm certain, but the power and magical ability required to do so is tremendous and rare."

"Well, what I want is for you to slay some other liches for me," he said, leaning back in his chair. "The why is because in the past three hundred years, one of my former vassals has discovered a way to hasten the process of becoming a lich, thereby making him able to mass produce them. As I am the Overlich, their power comes directly from my own, meaning every new one is a direct drain on my own magical powers. I am quite physically strong, by myself, but these days most of my magic ability is devoted to simple tasks and keeping the enchantment of eternal night over my domain. In fact, if I regain enough power, I might be able to return you to your own world... after you defeat Demiursa, since you'll have become stronger after defeating all those minor liches."

After leading you through his castle, he comes to a room leading into a tube with cushioned seats near one end. "Alright, everyone, just pick a seat and get comfy," he says. After you do so, he closes the door, leaving the inside of the tube dark. You hear the sound of some gears turning, and switches going off, as the tube suddenly accelerates, pushing you all into the backs of your seats. There are some small windows, out of which you can see scenery whizzing by, followed by a massive expanse of blue, then mountains and a forest. There's a slow descent, then a sudden jerk forward as you're all vaulted forward into a cushion at the opposite end. Miraculously, no bones have been broken, and there's not even an injury. The door opens, and you can see you're in a lovely town in the middle of a sunny spring day, with various ponies gathered around the bullet you've been riding in, Miss DB and your classmates included.

She continues to do perfectly legal things in the back seat.

Bang enjoys the entire ride on his way there, although that last bit did leave him dazed. The moment the door busts open Bang jumps out but still wobbly. "That was AWESOME! Let's go back and do it again!!" Bang says, only to stop once he hears Miss DB's voice.

"Miss Deathblossom! We met a really cool guy named Skullheart! He called himself a human and told us to go beat up a bunch of Liches! Oh, he also said that he could get us home if we beat them up too!" Bang exclaims, still hyped from the ride and smiling brightly.

Violet looks down into the crater.

"Rushin? Where have guys been?"

"I'll do what I want, when I want, and how I want." Minty says, cross her hooves over her chest, "and nopony is gonna tell me what to do."

Upon seeing the massive bullet crashlanded, and seeing Rushin', Bonnie, and Bang in it, Minty rolls her eyes with a groan.
"Oh great, the Dork Squad is back."

Minty looks over to Flicker, thinking she just has a really fat cigarette.
"Can I have some," she whispers to Flicker, "I still need to look cool and all that jazz, you hippocrit."

"Yes, i do. Just saying. I feel happy not to be included in such a dumb title."

Alright, that was freaky... were they just.... shout out of the castle? Urgh, it certainly wasn't pleasant inside this capsule. The colts smelled. Reminding herself not to get near them, she steps out of the "transport"

The Pegasus filly embraces Miss DB's shouts with a great deal of relief.

"Aahhh... farewell, team Rushin Justice.. long live team Back to Reality."

As instructed, she steps out.

"Eeeh... is that Ponyville...? Also, Miss DB, i doubt it would be dangerous than where we just came from... are the others alright?"

Rushin' cracks his neck as he steps out of the crater, looking back at the bullet. "WOAH. Jeez, I though that was just like a tube or something. We were shot? Awesome!"

He turns to look at Violet, "Oh hey Violet. We got teleported to this creepy emo castle after Bang... uh..." he holds of on tattling on his friend, "Well, anyhow, we got teleported to this creepy castle and their was this man-thing in a walking tank of armor that showed us to, like, this OTHER man-thing that was a giant radioactive skeleton!"

"And then there was a bee-woman thing and we were told about the REAL evil Demiursa sorceress chick from the statue and how she sent us here and I ate some soup and..." he shakes his head, "We have this awesome quest now, you want in?"

"Well fine, Team Rushin' Justice will do just fine without you anyhow." He snorts, "But you're gonna change your attitude real quick after we start getting us back home."

"A skeleton told you to fight liches and he'd send us home from this world, and we're only in this world because Demiursa sent us here?"
