Guard: "I said, you're too early. Symphony ain't until eight tonight, and it's high noon right now. And we don't mess around with the schedule for nobody, not even you bleedin' huge pony types. So find somethin' to do 'till tonight. Maybe ya could go lie on the beach, I'm sure the kiddies'll love to have a mountain to climb!"
( Nightmare Moon blushes, and briefly looks at her stomach and flanks. Her expression quickly changes to one of indignant fury.)
Nightmare Moon: "You—You insolent mortal! How DARE you deny the Queen of the Night her musical entertainment….and insult her figure! I should BANISH YOU TO THE MOON FOR-" (she suddenly breaks off, an idea striking her. Her anger melts away as a smug look spreads across her face. Smirking, the dark alicorn leans her head downward staring right at the human guard.) "…You say the symphony doesn't perform until this evening? Well…"
(Her horn glows with purple miasma, and her eyes take on a soft light. As the glow of her magic builds around her horn, so does the light from her eyes. In fact, it seems as if she is sucking the very light from around her, calling in darkness. Above, the sky speeds through the arc of the sun at an unnaturally rapid pace, racing through the daylight hours in seconds.)
Nightmare Moon: "THE EVENING SHOW WILL BE SOONER THAN YOU THINK!!! HA HA HA HA HAAA!" (The moon soon rises, full and beautiful, lighting up the now-nighttime sky. All the while, Nightmare Moon's eyes and horn are still aglow, noe even brighter in the night. Eventually, though, they return to normal.)
Guard: (blinks) "…Right then. Ticket, please?"
Nightmare Moon: (stunned by his casual tone) "Wha…You—you're not even scared? I just wiped away the daytime!"
Guard: "Just the other day, a unicorn came through here—Disk Jockey type, had an Earth Pony with her, but she was more classy. Anyway, DJ pony starts raising a stink about how some obscenely loud bass speaker she toted around was seized by the coppers, going on about how she'd flatten anyone responsible with her rump, then finally gets really bloody mad, and her mane and tail become a collumn of blue fire soarin' two hundred meters in the air. After that, a little fast-forward trick just dosn't have the same…'Oomph'."
Nightmare Moon: "I…see. Well, here is me ticket, human. Thank you for being…cooperative."
(She levitates him the ticket, turns into a glowing mist, and slithers into the Opera House.)
Guard: (rolling his eyes and mumbling) "Bloody ponies…."
