“那是暗影之盔(The Helm of Shadows)。”露娜悲伤地看着过去的她变成的梦魇之月转过头来狂笑了起来。

甜贝儿问道:“所以那头盔就是你变成梦魇之月的原因?”

“不完全是,那头盔是由我的情感形成的,由梦境的力量来建造的,是我把自己变成了梦魇之月。”她们周围的影像渐渐消失在黑暗中,“后来发生了什么你们都知道,我被我姐姐流放到了月亮上,直到我在第一千年白昼最长的那天回归,并带来永恒的黑夜。你们也知道是谁阻止了这一切的发生。”她边说着场景转换到了两姐妹城堡的废墟上,还有童子军再熟悉不过的小马们的图像。

甜贝儿欢呼了起来:“是瑞瑞和她的朋友们!”

 

 

小萍花睁大了眼睛,“她们看起来好年幼啊!”就如她们所看到的,每匹小马身旁的碎片组成一个个谐律元素,一道充满着魔力的彩虹像波浪一样射向空中,把梦魇之月给包围了起来。当彩虹消逝,梦魇之月消失了,只剩下了倒在原地的露娜公主。

 

 

“哇,”当画中的小马们互相庆祝的时候,甜贝儿道:“我们都听过这些故事,但直到我们亲眼所见我们姐姐们做的这些...”

“真是棒极了!”飞板璐也欢呼了起来。这一时刻是童子军们从年幼到现在一直都很耳熟能详的。

“看那!”小萍花指了指,角落里那有一个散发着魔法能量的东西。

甜贝儿跟着小萍花的目光看了过去,叫了起来:“暗影之盔!”那头盔掉在一边,没有被在场的正在庆祝的小马们注意到。

“是的,虽然你们的姐姐和她们的朋友把我从诅咒中释放出来,但头盔的魔力太强大了而无法被摧毁。”她们继续看下去的时候,看到太阳和月亮在天空中飞过了好几次,最终粉笔画版本的塞拉斯蒂娅和露娜回到了这里,“我和我姐姐不知道该怎么办,头盔太过于危险,任何接触到它的小马都会被它的黑暗力量所腐蚀,”甜贝儿看到塞拉斯蒂娅和露娜用魔法小心翼翼地拿起了头盔离开了城堡,“我们不能冒险把头盔藏在中心城或者是其它任何小马聚集的地方,会有不少小马会被头盔蕴含的黑魔法所吸引,所以我们在另外一个地方建立了一个让任何小马都不会靠近的监牢。”

小萍花低语道:“无尽之森。”露娜点了点头,当她们继续看下去,看到魔法在黑板上再次现身的粉笔版公主两姐妹周围旋转着,地面上出现了一个洞口,头盔飞进了洞里,垂直下落到似乎已经永远消失的地步。

“在我们亲自设计的监牢中,我们把头盔深深地埋在了地下。”洞口周围长出了很多树,树枝像蛇一样慢慢地缠绕在一起。“我们用活生生的树木筑成一道道墙,把小马挡在外面:活树林。在活树林外面我们创造了一些生物来守护这片区域。”当那些一些木材从树上碎裂下来,重新汇聚成她再熟悉不过又很笨重的形态时,甜贝儿不禁打了个寒颤——木精狼。它们朝着夜空嚎叫着,绕着那庞大的活树林转着圈。但在甜贝儿太过紧张之前,一个熟悉的影子生物飞过夜空,用自己将活树林包裹在阴影里,把大部分的木精狼也隐藏在阴影之中,甜贝儿听到了一些微弱的铃铛声。

她喊了起来:“是佩利冬!”

“是的,佩利冬。”露娜笑了,“我召唤了一个暗影生物来看守这个监牢,如果有什么东西威胁到了它的防御就立即通知我。”露娜转过头看着童子军,“当佩利冬通知我的时候,我知道是时候该向你们三个寻求帮助了。

飞板璐问道:“为什么是我们?”露娜转头回看到她们面前的画像,看着佩利冬转着脑袋,跺着蹄子和爪子,它越向半空飞进了活树林。甜贝儿现在几乎紧张到不能呼吸了。过了一会,佩利冬从活树林里冲了出来,把鹿角插进了地里。不一会儿,鹿角上的藤蔓开始在三个不同的地方生根发芽,树根、岩石和泥土从地里长了出来,就好像是鹿角把它们从地里拔出来一样。它们一起排成了一排,直到组成了三根相似的一根挨着一根的柱子,每根柱子大约有八英尺高,从底部到顶部都有台阶环绕上去。

“这就是原因,”露娜解释道,“出于我不知道的原因,佩利冬决定设立最后一道封印,就连我和我姐姐都打不开。经过大量的研究,我们相信进入活树林的唯一办法就是找到三匹有着极度相似的可爱标记的小马,这是让小马能永远远离暗影之盔的完美方式,因为小马国历史上从未出现过三匹有着极度相似可爱标记的小马。”露娜又转过头来看着童子军们,“直至你们的出现,所以你们必须要守护好活树林。”

 

译者注::ftemoji_celestiahurt:(以下纯属个人猜测)

看到这里解答一下我在前面写的作品概况那里的第2点,正如评论区各位的猜测,这本书在这章补充的另一个角度的正剧S01E02的故事设定确实跟马圈著名同人《逝罪》有关。:ftemoji_sgpopcorn:

官方出版这部小说之前一直没有对‘S01E02露娜被净化后留下的碎片后来怎么样了’这个小细节作解答,在这一章算是填了这个坑,《逝罪》的剧情设定就是基于S01E02露娜被净化后留下的梦魇碎片而展开(看过的应该都知道,在《逝罪》的后面有解释,不清楚可以再去刷一刷https://fimtale.com/t/839:ftemoji_lunateehee:),结果官方解释中那些碎片只剩下个危险的头盔:ftemoji_lunagrump: 可以说是假如公主俩姐妹没有处理好那些梦魇碎片,小马剧情很有可能向《逝罪》方向发展了。

(当然同人作品毕竟是同人,跟官方剧情还是有所差别的,也许当初写《逝罪》的作者使用的那些基础设定也没有想得那么多,这些也只是我在读这部小说中get到的同人设定跟官方剧情相关的一个点而已:ftemoji_sgpopcorn:)

 

英文版:

“The Helm of Shadows.” Princess Luna watched sadly as the chalk Nightmare Moon threw back her head and laughed maniacally.

“So that’s what made you Nightmare Moon?” Sweetie Belle asked.

“Not exactly. The Helm was formed from my emotions. By using the power of dreams to build it, I made myself Nightmare Moon.” The scene around them faded to darkness. “You all know the tale. Banished by my sister to the moon until I returned on the longest day of the thousandth year to bring about nighttime eternal. You also know who prevented that from happening.” As she spoke the scene shifted to the ruins of the Castle of the Two sisters, along with drawings of ponies the Crusaders knew quite well.

“Rarity and her friends!” Sweetie Belle cheered.

Apple Bloom’s eyes widened. “They look so young!” As they watched, the Elements of Harmony appeared by each of the ponies, and a wave of rainbow magic shot into the air, surrounding Nightmare Moon. When the magic faded, Nightmare Moon was no more, and Princess Luna had returned.

“Wow,” Sweetie Belle said as the chalk ponies celebrated. “We’ve all heard the story, but seeing our sisters do it is…”

“Awesome,” Scootaloo agreed. It was a moment each of the Crusaders had grown up hearing about.

“Look!” Apple Bloom pointed. Something off in the corner was pulsing with magical energy.

Sweetie Belle followed Apple Bloom’s gaze. “The Helm of Shadows!” she squeaked. The Helm sat off to the side, unnoticed by the celebrating ponies.

“Yes. Although your sisters and their friends freed me of my curse, the magic of the Helm was too powerful to be destroyed.” As they continued watching, the sun and moon flew through the sky several times. Eventually the chalk versions of Celestia and Luna returned. “My sister and I were at a loss for what to do. The Helm was dangerous. Anypony who came into contact with it could be corrupted by its power.” Sweetie Belle watched as Celestia and Luna carefully lifted the Helm. “We couldn’t risk hiding the Helm in Canterlot or any other large city. There would be too many ponies that the Helm’s dark magic could call to. So we decided to build a prison far from where anypony would dare to roam.”

“The Everfree Forest,” Apple Bloom whispered. Luna nodded. As they continued to watch, magic swirled around the chalk sisters and an opening appeared in the ground. The Helm flew into the opening and plummeted for what seemed like forever.

“We buried the Helm deep in the ground, in a prison of our own design.” Trees sprouted up around the cavern, their branches moving like serpents, slowly wrapping around one another. “We built a wall of living forest to keep ponies out: The Livewood. And from that living wood, we created creatures to guard the forest.” Sweetie Belle shuddered as wood splintered off the trees and re-formed into hulking shapes she was all too familiar with…Timberwolves. They howled at the night sky as they circled the cavern that held the Helm. But before Sweetie Belle got too nervous, a familiar shadowy creature flew through the sky, wrapping itself around the Livewood, trapping most of the Timberwolves inside a blanket of shadow. Sweetie Belle heard the faint tinkling of bells.

“The peryton!” she exclaimed.

“Yes. The peryton.” Luna smiled. “I summoned a creature of shadow to keep watch over the prison. And to alert me if anything ever threatened to breach its defenses.” Luna turned to look at the Crusaders. “When the peryton called to me, I knew it was time to reach out to the three of you.” The Crusaders looked at one another.

“Why us?” Scootaloo asked. Luna turned back at the scene in front of them, watching as the peryton rotated its head and stomped its hooves and talons. It leaped into the air and flew into the Livewood. Sweetie Belle was so tense, she could barely breathe. After a few moments, the peryton burst from the Livewood and slammed its antlers into the ground. In response, shadowy antler vines sprouted in three distinct spots. Roots, rocks, and dirt grew from the ground as if the antlers were putting them from the earth. They formed together until three matching pillars stood next to one another. Each pillar loomed about eight feet tall and had steps twisting around it from the bottom to the top.

“That is why,” Luna explained. “For reasons I do not know, the peryton decided to create one final lock that even my sister and I could not open. After much study, we came to believe that the only way to enter the Livewood would be to find three ponies with matching cutie marks. It was the perfect way to keep ponies away from the Helm of Shadows forever, because there have never been three ponies with matching cutie marks in all of Equestria’s history.” Luna turned to look at the Cutie Mark Crusaders. Each of their cutie marks glowed brightly. “Until you came along. Which is why you must protect the Livewood.”
