Judgement. by Baron-Engel Judgement. by Baron-Engel
The story continues in my Equestria dreamscape. It was quiet in Ponyville. Although the sun was still well below the horizon the soft glow of Celestia's protective spell still shrouded the town. Sunrise was not for another hour and most ponies were still in bed asleep. If they had been awake and near the library they would have been treated to an unusual sight as over the course of several minutes one by one Applejack, Rarity, Petina, and Luna from Celestia's team flashed into existence in front of the library. The ponies gathered in a small cluster and waited, their part of the mission was over there was nothing more they could but wait. And hope.

Finally Twilight Sparkle blinked into existence there to. She looked frantically for Luna. "He's there! He's there! Close the door!" Luna nodded and closed her eyes. "It is done. Now it is up to my sister and Baron."

Rainbow Dash wanted to know if Twilight had actually seen the Lord of Shadows and what he looked like, but Twilight was not interesting in satisfying the pegasi interest in gossip. Instead she went to stand alongside Luna and Applejack who were staring toward the Everfree forest. "How will we now if the plan is a success?" Asked Applejack as she nervously pawed at the ground with a front hoof. Luna replied. "My sister will send us a sign." "What kind of sign?" asked the earth pony. Luna smiled at Applejack "Knowing my sister I am certain we won't mistaken it when she does."

Suddenly the glow spell around Ponyville vanished plunging the town into the predawn darkness. All the ponies gathered started speaking at once. Attempting to understand what the meaning of this event was. All at once Luna's eyes went wide as if she instinctively knew what was about to occur. "Everybody close your eyes! Don't look at...." She never got a chance to finish the sentence.

From the direction of Everfree there was a blinding white flash that seemed to envelope everything in Ponyville. Twilight had closed her eyes and turned her head. Even with her eyes snapped closed Twilight could see and feel the brilliance of the flash. When she did open them again bright spots of color cluttered her vision. When she turned and looked back toward the forest a vast column roiling fire was climbing into the still dark sky. Several seconds later the sound/ shock wave hit Ponyville with a deafening crash shattering windows, tossing thatch off of roofs and rattling every pony wide awake. Rainbow Dash having recovered from the shock just hung dumbfounded in midair as the fiery column flattened out like a giant version of the mushrooms that ponies so loved to eat. Celestia had sent her message. Judgement had been carried out

At first I looked at the picture and was like, " oooooh, that's a big explosion." After I read the section, I looked back and was like, " wait- those are TREES. She just blew up a part of the forest."

I'm so excited for what's next! :dance:

Yes the Royal Equestrian Cartographers have had to come out and make revisions to the maps as a result of this incident.

Would this have been Equestria's version of Trinity or Hiroshima?

It was neither Trinity or Hiroshima. It was effectively fusion not fission reaction since what happened was we summoned/ created a little bit of the core of the sun inside that chamber for just a fraction of second.
