    In the time it had taken Sky to get up to, and then tackle, him Kes had picked off two more slavers. He was in the process of lining up another shot when he heard the sound of beating wings. He hadn't had enough time to completely prepare himself for the impact, but he had enough time to drop his rifle and lock his gaze onto the incoming Pegasus. Aside from that Kestrel had a few other things in his favor.

    His size for example.

    Kes was an almost fully matured gryphon, he was much larger than average in comparison to most ponies. Add to that the weight of his armor and other gear and tackling him would be like slamming head first into a brick wall; albeit a heavily armed brick wall that would kill you if it saw purpose in doing so. Yet Sky, the tiny little Pegasus that she was, had been able to get up some good speed before impacting the Gryphon so she was successful in knocking him out of his tower.

    She seemed to have forgotten however that her target not only had wings, but was skilled at unarmed combat, puls this tackle would most likely end up with her pressed right into the gryphons armored chest. Kestrel was defiantly going to do his best to remind her in the coming minutes of this mistake.

    The now disarmed sniper would give a loud grunt as he was hit, but he would not let the pain stop him from using his skills to counter attack. Immediately his arms would reach around Sky in what would at first seem to be a tight hug. The sentiment would not remain so innocent for long, after all Kes had only a few seconds to attempt his counter before he HAD to take flight and move away.

    Should his strength aid him that would be all he would need.

    The counter was simple, Break Sky's wings. Most pegasi would drop like flies or even pass out from the pain of such an attack, and having done it before Kes could personally attest to its effectiveness.

    How he would go about doing this was just as simple. His 'hug' would allow him to wrap his claws around the base of each wing, right claw right wing, left claw left wing. From there all Kes had to do was pull his forelegs back as hard as he could. That in turn would pull Sky's wings back past their joints natural range of motion, and should this attempt be successful, right out of their sockets.

    As they snuck through the terrain, the sound of gunfire could already be heard from the battle against the defenders on the walls and the army moving in to attack. As they each positioned in a trench, a shout could be heard from a enemy slaver and when Lightning peaked over the edge, he saw the slavers moving in on their position quickly, "We're compromised! It's time to take out these assholes!"

    Pulling out his 9mm SMG, Lightning could see a griffon taking off but he didn't have the time to take care of him now. He had to take out the armored pony charging at them. Aiming for his body, he let loose a short burst of 4 rounds.

    Shutter would stay silent, even as the slavers saw the group. It wouldn't do any good to announce his posotion, when instead, he could try and take one by surprise.

    Instead, he praised his luck when he saw one of the Slaver's hid eright nearby him. He crept closer, gun at the ready, and tried to aim a direct shot straight for the pony's temple, as close as he could get to avoid missing. Normally, he would hesitate for a lethal shot...but he had killed before, and to him, these Slavers deserved every bullet he could spare, especially after Old Appleloosa...

    Techno ducked low to the wall of the trench, the sounds of battle raging closer to the walls of Stableton. He charged up a spell he had learned from a book in a semi-collapsed library. He stuck his head above the trench, aimed at the pony charging the trench and let loose a magic blast aimed for the front-right leg to stagger him and trip him up.

    Starry hoisted her missle launcher, and aimed it up into the sky. There was a griffon slaver roaming the skies up there with a very scary looking weapon, and Starry intended to take him down.

    She ran through a few brief calculations in her mind. The slaver's apparent velocity and his trajectory, and, bracing her hooves against the floor, fired the missile.

    Faitheart pulled out of her dive with some troubles but managed to set fire to a could fortifications before flying away. Observing the battle field she noticed that a griffin had taken to the air and was attacking the blue pegasus from before. Diving she flared her wings and tried grabbing the griffin from behind, trying to not only break his hold on the pegasus, but get him into a lock

    The loud explosion and large dirt cloud had almost knocked Kira of her feet, it was perhaps not the smartest to use explosives and this close range. As she looked over to were she had thrown the dynamite she could not see Surgeon any more, she really did not care what had happened to him but at least he would have gotten quite hurt from an explosions that close to him.

    Kira did not at first notice Silver as he came back down to her as her head was still somewhat scramble from the explosion. She hear him speak but it took a moment for her brain to understand the words he was asking her. "What? No I am fine for now it is just..." She hesitated even now in from of an entire army of angry slavers trying to either enslave them or kill them, she let out a long sigh before she continued. "I can't fly." She really, really hated admitting her inability for aviation that even in the face of danger she would not talk about it easily.

    Silvers eyes widened at the thought of a griffin who couldn't fly. Now isn't the time for questions, its the time for action.

    Silver fired his assault rifle at three slavers approaching them with knives on poles. He leapt into the air and landed next to Kira. "Here, take the rifle and provide cover, I'll get you on top of the gates again." With that he forced his gun into Kira's paws, and then gasped at the pain in his side. His rib really wasn't going to like this. He grabbed hold of Kira and flapped his wings hard as he could. He slowly gained altitude.

    By the time Faith had caught up to, and locked down, Kestrel the gryphon had already managed to break Sky's wings and kick her off towards the roof of a nearby building. The fall would not have been fatal, just painful. Very, very, painful. This little victory was rather short lived though as soon enough Kes was impacted again and locked into a secure hold by a pair of rather bulky scaled appendages.

    A fucking dragon...the Slavers had a fucking dragon.

    “Oh fuck me...” Kes thought to himself as the dragon latched onto him, crushing his body tightly in a harsh lock. What was it with everyone wanting to kill him today. He had just wanted to shoot some raiders, maybe fuck up some of the higher command later, but no. First Sky kamikaze dives him, losing the use of both of her wings in the process, and now hes in the arms of some dragon he didn't....wait He did know this dragon. It was that one from the party that had tried to strike up a conversation with him.

    Faith was her name if memory served.

    Great...just great. How in the name of the Void was he supposed to get out of this one. The way she had his arms secured wouldn't allow for him to reach down into his vest/saddlebags for one of his back up weapons; thus he could not shoot her. The only thing he could do is move his arms back..wait...hot damn. It was a long shot for sure, but Kes did not want to hang around and let Faith have her way with him. Just like he had done with Sky the pragmatic gryphon resorted to using something brutal, yet simple to try and win.

    Reaching his arms up and back and best he could Kes began to swipe his talons at the dragons face, at the only true soft spot the overgrown lizards had; the eyes. If Kes could just nick one of them it could provide the distraction he needed to get out of this lock, if he could hit both he could blind Faith and possibly take her out of the fight. To increase his chances of hitting, Kes flared out his talons and struck multiple times, trying his damnedest to sink his talons into the soft squishy flesh of his captors ocular organs.

    Scrap's shot hit the raider but it was such a glancing blow that the raiders chemmed out failed to acknowledge it beyond a simple grunt.

    "Damnit! C'mon Scraps you gotta do better then that-WHOAA-" Scrap berated himself inside his head, until a large impact shook the whole wall. "K that was pretty far away. I won't retreat QUITE yet."

    Righting himself he refocused his aim on the raider that he had shot earlier. Quickly snapping of three shots from his prism blaster off towards the raider, he prayed to Luna that the red beams of death racing towards the raider would hit their mark and complete their deady purpose.

    The armored lancer was immediately met with a massive barrage of fire. Lightning Flash had managed to land several shots in his chest. Most of the impact was absorbed by the metal armor. Of Lucky's five shots, three missed, and one reflected off the metal plate on his knee. The fifth managed to pierce through right below the knee. Combined with Techno's spell to his other leg, which landed successfully, the lancer was simultaneously crippled in both forelegs, and while he couldn't feel a thing due to the chems, both of his forelegs gave way and he fell forward, his face landing squarely in the dirt. He struggled to lift himself to his hooves, which was a nearly futile task with both front legs crippled. He was alive, and still holding the lance, but had been effectively paralyzed about twenty-five yards from the trench.

    The slaver taking cover behind one of the billboard's supports didn't spot Shutter until he was less than ten yards away. The slaver would have quickly turned to shoot Shutter, but Shutter had fired his weapon the moment the slaver glanced at him. The hunting rifle fell out of his mouth, and the slaver dropped to the floor, where a thick well of blood began spilling out his head, soiling the earth.

    The unicorn behind the cart had spotted his comrade falling, and quickly aimed his hunting rifle at the outline of what appeared to be an invisible pony. He fired all five shots in his rifle's clip. One ricocheted off the billboard's supporting pillar, and three of them missed entirely, two wizzing past Shutter, and one hitting the dirt several yards ahead of him. One bullet missed, but hit the corpse of his fallen ally. He quickly began to reload his weapon.

    The griffon was flying straight toward the group in the trench, and spotted Starry's missile the moment it launched. He was a skilled flier, and merely clasped his wings to his side, falling briefly before extending them and gliding toward the trench. The missile detonated well above him. The griffon hadn't aimed well, but unloaded the entire clip of his submachine gun on the ponies in the trench. One bullet pierced Lucky in his back hoof, another bullet cut deep into Techno's flank, slightly above his cutie mark. Two bullets bounced off of Starry's missile launcher, causing no apparent damage, and another bullet wizzed past Lightning Flash, slicing several of the hairs off his tail.

    The slaver in the crater leapt out and began charging toward the trench. He had the combat shotgun in his mouth ready to fire and he leapt over the crippled body of his metal-burdened friend.

    Another slaver was turned into sparking red dust by a prism blast, and as Ashen switched out the spark battery in his rifle, his ears perked as the sound a gate crashing down could be heard in the distance. He whirled around, EFS registering a group of ponies on the other side of town, and a cloud of dust peaking over the buildings. It didn't take a genius to figure out what was going on.

    'They've broken through the southern gate. Clever.'

    He looked around, none of the other ponies seemed eager to rush to stop the slavers rushing through that gate, so Ashen took it upon himself to reinforce the defenders there.

    He jumped off his post, bending his knees to absorb the short fall, and as he started galloping he saw a slaver sneaking up on a pony blasting another slaver with a prism blaster. He snapped up his rifle quick, took aim, and blasted one of the slaver's legs off with a scarlet beam of magical death. The slaver took a moment to register the loss of limb, with the so much chems running through his body he still didn't feel the pain. Thankfully for the slaver, before the pain could break through his chems Ashen walked up to him and grabbed his neck with a telekinetic grip, before snapping it while he was still down. He looked up at the unicorn he had just saved.

    "Come with me, the slavers just broke through the south gate and somepony needs to reinforce it."

    Ashen didn't even wait for a response before turning and galloping towards the gate, time was of the essence.

    He soon arrived near the broken down gate, a dozen slavers pouring through along with familiar face riding a heavily-chemed stallion.

    "Cross."

    Ashen crouched down, hiding behind a box as the raiders charged. None were heading down the alley he was hiding out in, but he'd have to act fast if he wanted to even get one before they were out of sight. So, he peaked out of cover, taking aim at the head of the large stallion Cross was riding, before squeezing the trigger on his rifle.

    Lightning frowned as his shots managed to hit his mark but due to the metal armor, it was a useless gesture. However, thanks to his teammates assisting, the armored pony soon fell. Lightning couldn't tell if he was dead or not but right now, he had no time to check. He turned his head and saw Shutter taking down one of the slavers with an easy sneak attack with his pistol.

    The loud explosion from Starry's missile then caught Lightning's attention. For a second, he forgot about the flying griffon and thought he had been taken out. He soon found out that he was wrong as the griffon soon strafed the trench with gunfire. One bullet flew so close to him, he swore he could feel the wind coming off it on his tail.

    Grinding his teeth slightly on his gun in irritation, Lightning looked down the trench to see if anypony was injured. He couldn't see any right now but that griffon was going to give them alot of trouble if somepony doesn't get rid of him. Yelling out through clenched teeth, Lightning said, "Cover me!" He opened up his wings and with one hard flap, he ascended vertically into the air, intent on taking on the griffon in aerial combat.

    Lucky yelped with pain as the bullet struck his hoof. He immediately aimed at the griffon flying overhead and fired another entire clip in his general direction.

    Lucky's face contorted into a gruesome mask of pure rage as he left his cover, his eyes nearly bulging from their sockets. He let loose a roaring bellow, the alcohol he constantly ingested fueling his anger.

    "I'LL TEAR YOU OUT OF THE FUCKING SKY!"

    Scrap watched with a grim satisfaction as the raider he was shooting was stalled by his first blast only to be killed by his third, before the drugged out ponies brain could register its own death.

    Satisfied with his kill, Scrap started to line up another raider, when he heard the familier sound of a prism weapon behind him. Whipping around he was able to catch the back end of the unicorn's extermination of the raider.

    When the pony commanded him to follow, Scrap's brain was in so much shock that he followed the new pony without question. Following him to the gate he saw saw sompony he had once met riding a very dangerous looking and heavily armoured earth pony.

    "Wait, Cross is with the slavers...that traitor! I suppose that i may have misjudged him last time we met...too bad I hate having to kill things that I could have been friends with..." Scrap raged inside his head.

    Following the other pony's example he ducked into an alleyway and used his magic to build some makeshift firing cover. Slowly peaking out of his cover he fired a three round burst from his prism blaster before ducking back under his ramshackle cover.

    *PEW* a couple seconds later more shots swung in near succession *PEW* *PEW*

    Cross turned and saw two ponies with prism weaponry huddling together trying to hit the armored herd. All he knew of the ones behind him was the screams of the militia ponies they slaughtered, and the all too present giggling....

    "Quick, Roid over there!!!" A small beam slashed passed Roid's armor, creating a small black scorch beam

    The armored bull of a pony quickly swerved towards the boxes, but then a most surprising even occured

    *BOOM!!!!!*
    " AHHHHHH", One of the ponies guns exploded slamming the two against the walls of the alley. Cross let out a wide eyed grin, that even beyond the respirator indicated he was pleased and horribly amused

    Roid was almost on them...but still Cross was offended

    And he didn't think it'd be gentlcoltly to allow these dregs to insult his honor

    *FLASH* he appeared behind the two ponies, recognizing the goggled-eyed one from somewhere he couldn't quite remember, he remembered the crying one as Scrap Parts from Starry's party.

    "Well Hello Fellas, seemed we find ourselves at a bit of a jist here now don't we?"

    The two looked at him.

    "Well then...." His horn flared, the two began to lift off the ground, wrapped in a warm crimson glow.

    Cross let out a slow mechanical wail that might've been a chuckle.

    "Well then dregs,...would you kindly... give my regards to my dear Luna?" The glow tightened, a small flame creeping out from the mask's nozzles as his eyes tightened.

    "TO THE MOON!!!!"

    Roid turned to attack glowing boomstick ponies but the their boomstick went boom. and then Hooded pony popped up and sent them to heaven, way up in the sky

    ....just like how Roid's mom use to tell him.

    The ponies behind Roid followed him down the alley, charging on

    Hooded pony jumped on his back on as they tumbled down the alley.

    Ponies screamed, that made Roid's head hurt.

    So he ate more candy

    Nopony came after them anymore, they were far intown

    Then Roid saw Blue-suited pony with 2 other ponies with boomsticks

    Hooded Pony ordered Roid to kill Blue Suited pony.

    Roid attacked.

    "YEAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
