    Fury came flying back to the storm cloud looking for somepony, he spotted Lightning hovering under the Storm and quickly dashed towards him, dodging lightning on his way. He spotted him, stopped in dead air, staring towards the ground.

    Starfall was trapped.

    Without hesitation Fury pushed his wings to full speed, feeling the air gushing behind him, he only hoped that he could get there on time. A Flash of Lightning in front of him made him pull back. Carefully, he thought, you must be careful. His heart was beating harder and harder as he progressed towards Starfall, his only thought was untrapping her and making sure she was safe.

    Starfall was flapping her wings in panic, the tips beginning to singe when they brushed too close to a flame. She tried twisting and turning, anything to free her leg, but it refused to budge. The smoke was slowly starting to sting her eyes and make it hard to breath. She looked up to the now open sky, partially thankful at least that the heavy rain was slowing the fire from engulfing the tree completely. Slowing. Not stopping. The clouds still appeared to be moving away, not looking as thick or tumultuous as they did before. She screamed again as she tried to lift the branch off her leg. It sill wouldn't budge.

    Lightning was torn. He needed to save both Starfall and ponyville. Which first? was all that raced through his head. Over and over again his muddled mind tried to overcome the conundrum placed before him. All the time rain poured onto his body and thunder cracked around him. In the end he made his decision.

    For the second time in the day he pulled a nose dive. He had only seen this done once before, by Rainbow Dash, but if he could get enough speed then perhaps he could save Starfall and then use his remaining momentum to swoop back skywards. It was a risk. But he had little or no choice and he was still feeling guilty for vomiting on her. Spurred on by the memory his wings tucked into his sides as tight as they could and he raced earthwards.

    Fury saw lightning dive. He knew what he was planning, and it was a foolish move at that, maybe if he could get to the tree in time and clear it he wouldn't crash into it. As he thought this he heard a scream. Time was running out, he knew only one way he could get there in time; Fury took a diagonal dive getting as close to the ground as possible. He closed his eyes and blocked out all sound, all distractions, his focus only on flying. He whipped his tail high in the air and reopened his eyes. He'd done it, peeking behind him he saw the small trail of fire, that was quickly extinguished by the heavy raid, he had reached his maximum speed. He had to get to Starfall before Lightning, or Lightning would crash into the tree and put both of them in even greater danger. In no time he made. He had landed directly in front of Starfall, just outside of the range of the Flames, dug his hooves deep in the ground and flapped him wings once. The flames were pushed backwards, he looked down at Starfall and spoke, "Relax, your saviors have arrived, also, don't move, you don't want to harm that leg anymore."

    Fury looked around for Lightning, he had just hit ground level...which meant he would be here momentarily, he dived under the tree and lifted it off ground forcing it in the air...creating just enough room for Lightning to get under and out.

    Starfall swore a pony hand just landed in front of her. The smoke was making it hard to see, hard to think. She thought he may have said something to her, but she couldn't be certain. So sleepy. Oh, was the branch off her leg? That was nice, time for sleep now. Starfall flopped her head back, passing out of conciousness.

    Lightning was travelling as fast as he could. The sheer effort of not losing control of the dive was sapping both his mental and physical strength, as he hit ground level and sped through the wisps of smoke that had dispersed from their source he was another pony. What the hay is that Guard pony doing! I thought he was meant to staying in the air and helping. His subconscious managing to miss the clear hypocrisy in the statement, he tore closer to the source of the flames.

    As he flew closer and closer he readied himself to knock the branch from Starfall but at the last moment the tree lifted in front of him and he found himself flying under it. As the blue pony soared past he glanced back and with a shocked look on his face saw Fury holding the tree in the air... Still trying to grasp what had just happened Lightning unfurled his wings and rose into the air once more. Trying to regain the altitude he had purposely lost.

    "Don't try that again! You'd knock yourself unconscious, now get down here, and get Starfall out of the Smoke, she's unconscious herself!" Fury yelled at Lightning. Maybe the cider had gotten to the Weather Pony, maybe not, but dives like that create enough momentum that it could make Starfall worse. He was struggling to hold this tree up so he had a clear grab.

    Woefully unaware of the terrifying action going on far below, Shocklight had curved around and passed through the cloud in his aerofoil pattern again about six times. It was as he curved back over for a seventh run that he realised nothing was happening; the cloud was resolutely remaining in its place, which shouldn't have happened if Lightning was doing his ... job... properly...

    Thunder rumbled through the cloud, almost pre-empting another strike. His wings numb, Shocklight plunged downwards through the cloud, through the heart of the lightning maelstrom, until he could see again. Far below, he could see the two male pegasi on the ground. There was smoke. A lightning strike had torn through a tree and maybe endangered a pony. He hoped it wasn't serious. He felt himself torn between two extremes - helping to save one pony or redirecting the cloud so it moved away from the town. Dumbstruck, he hovered below the surface of the cloud, trying to work out what to do, when the lightning decided to make the choice for him.

    With a deafening explosion, another bolt exited the cloud and tore right past him, clipping the edge of his left wing and sending him spiralling off toward the ground - the excess charge was trying to ground itself. His wings retracted on reflex, and it took all of Shocklight's effort to extend them again. The charge ruffled all his feathers and reached his wing trim, then dispersed into the air with a visible crackling. Owing to the thunder's damage to his ears, all Shocklight heard was a muffled rattling as the rain came down around him, drops intersecting each other and hurtling toward the floor. His wings no longer charged, he righted himself and took a hovering position about halfway between the cloud and the ground, and tried to come to his senses...

    Sorry for not posting earlier, I had a job interview in London today and I only got back about half an hour ago. Hopefully won't happen again.

    Lightning was once again climbing. Now that he knew that Starfall was in fact safe or being saved his focus switched back the large, dark mass rumbling and sparking over head. The constant flashes of the lightning and cracks of the thunder told him that this storm wasn't getting any weaker. As the pegasus climbed higher into the turbulence above, the rain got stronger and stung his eyes so much that he had to turn his face to one side. As he turned his head he noticed that Shocklight was hovering under the cloud layer.

    However the other pony looked shaken, he had been hit by the lightning...

    Rolling over onto his back lightning turned towards the suspended Pegasus and kicking back with his wings leisurely flew over. "Nice day for a fly huh." Lightning joked "Celestia sure did a good job on raising the sun"

    Brohorn cantered through the storm as he surveyed the scene with curiosity.

    The weather sure can get violent in Ponyville at times. I've never seen so much lightning before. I hope i'm not in danger. thought Brohorn in bewilderment.

    As Brohorn's gaze drifted higher into the sky, he noticed some figures near the clouds.

    "Flying ponies!" cried Brohorn with excitement as he sat down to observe the spectacle. Needless to say he was oblivious to the impending danger.

    By the time he had shouted to Lightning for help he had already left. "Oh great...", he looked around but all he could see was fire blazing all around him, however, in the distance he noticed a very muscular brown pony. "You there! Come get over here and give me a hand!". The Smoke was starting to get to Fury already and he was weakening, he could move the tree, but it was too fearful that it might catch light again or he might hit Starfall.

    Brohorn was startled by being called out by a pegasus on the ground not too far away. The pegasis that called out to him looked like seasoned veteran guard pony with quite a presence; sporting a black coat with a wild flaming red mane. He appeared to be standing near an uprooted tree that was surround by fire.

    The flying pony is talking to me?! thought Brohorn in utter surprise. Then he quickly shook off his fascination with the ponies in the air, and started to gallop to close the gap between himself and the guard pony.

    As he approached, the sense of urgency was made apparent to Brohorn.

    What seems to be the matter Sir Pegasus? Harsh weather we are having today yeah? So with what dost thou needeth a helping hoof with? asked Brohorn as he arrived on the scene.

    Brohorn then drew his wooden sword, and drove it into the ground with his mouth. He then lowered his head, planted his hooves firmly in the ground, and reached for his horn around his neck. Out from the horn resonated a sound that signified the start of a battle.

    "Now then! We do battle with the burning tree! Stand fast!" shouted Brohorn with vigor.

    Fury tried to get his head around the words. Then shouted, "No! Just, please, move Starfall away from the flames and the tree. And please, do it soon!". Fury looked down at Starfall, she seemed to still be breathing, which was a very good sign, but he was getting tired and he had to use his wings again, to bat back the flames, he himself was getting Dizzy from exhaustion. He dropped the tree onto his wings; and looked desperately at the approaching pony as he began to pass out.

    "Ah! My apologies Sir Pegasus." said Brohorn and he immediately leaped into the ring of fire.

    A familiar figure lay there unconscious. Body of charcoal and mane like soft rolling clouds.

    "It b-be you?" stammered Brohorn as he started to blush. She's in trouble... I need to help her. pondered Brohorn

    Brohorn made his way to Starfall and freed her. Looking at her laying down, Brohorn hesitated. Where do I... Grab her...? thought Brohorn in distress looking at her from head to hoof. He was always timid around mares.

    This is no time to back down. There's a pony that needs your help!
    thought Brohorn with a serious and determined look on his face.
    "For Ponyville!" shouted Brohorn as he scooped Starfall's limp body onto his back and escaped from the inferno.

    Fury was glad that Starfall had made it out, he rolled the log off his shoulders and flew out of the fire, landing directly in front of Starfall's saviour.

    "Thank you, brave one. Now please, get her somewhere safe, I must tend to the skies before this storm gets even more out of hand." Fury Panted. He tried to lift himself in the air but only found himself collapsing on the floor. "Hrmph, maybe not, looks like it up to the professionals on this one." He said, and gladly closed his eyes.

    Starfall had a headache. One too many wines at the pub last night she guessed. How did she get home? Her bleary eyes began to open and a brown blur began to take shape. In front her was a familiar stallion, the one who had a beautiful was with words and semi permanent blush. What was he doing in her bed? She gasped. No. She was outside, in the rain. Memories of the storm began to trickle back, fighting through her headache. 'You-you saved me' She croaked. She attempted to sit up but the exertion nearly made her sick, so she lay back down, letting the cool rain wash away the memory of the fire

    Shocklight flipped over, shaking his head, trying to clear the confusion. "A strike clipped me," he yelled out to Lightning, trying to be heard over the rain and rumbling clouds. He leaned around to try and look at his burned wing. It was scorched, the end feathers mere crispy sticks. That would recover. The trim had done its job admirably. They were only designed for ambient static, after all.

    "Is Starfall okay?" he yelled to Lightning, looking around on the ground. It was too far to make out details, but he saw another pony he didn't recognise. Had they acquired reinforcements?
