i was playing some of the fable games one day, and i had an idea: what would rainbow dash look like as jack of blades? well, many days later, i finished this pic here
i also got the idea for MLP/fable crossover stories. sooo i wrote this short story to go along with the picture here. i call my crossover series: my little fable. i am still figuring out the specifics for the series. in my crossover series here, jack of blades is called jack of rainbows (a fitting title, don't you all agree?) and is a mare pony (a girl). don't hate me for it, i just wanted to make it a bit original at least lol. anyway, enjoy the story, and i woudl appreciate it if you were to give me some feedback on it

Rainbow dash rushed home in excitement. She couldn’t wait for tomorrow to come, so she could show her friends the awesome-looking mask she found near the everfree forest that night. She had never seen a mask so… awesome-looking before. As much as she loved her new mask, she couldn’t help but feel something was strange about it. What was that mask doing there, just randomly laying on the ground? Did it belong to someone? She just shrugged off those thoughts, for the awesome mask was hers now, and she was absolutely overjoyed with her treasure.
As soon as rainbow dash got home, she went off to bed to get some sleep and think of an awesome story and speech about the mask and how she got it. Hmmm perhaps she could tell everyone she defeated a dragon and received the mask as a reward? She could only imagine the look on scootaloo’s face when she hears of her epic tale. Rainbow dash set the mask on her nightstand and tried to go to sleep. No more than a minute later, though, she heard a noise… no… a voice… a whisper…
”wear me… wear me…”
rainbow dash jumped out of fear that someone was in her house. of course, as soon as she did, the voice ceased, and all was silent again. Rainbow dash just old herself she was hearing things. Maybe getting something to drink would help calm her nerves…
she went to go get out of her bed, when she noticed the mask was glowing red. Rainbow dash, petrified from fear, just stared at the mask, not knowing what to do. She heard the whisper again, this time she felt like it was speaking deep into her soul…
”wear me… wear me…”
rainbow dash remained petrified at the sight of the glowing, talking mask. She was scared out of her mind, yet the sound of the mask’s whisper was strangely calming…
”wear me… and celestia herself will envy your power…”
’Princess celestia, envious of my power?’ thought rainbow dash. She was imagining an awesome power of being able to make sonic rainbooms at will. The princess did seem very impressed when she did that sonic rainboom at the best young flyer competition… She was less scared now, and more curious, as the mask’s words poured into her mind.
”wear me… and equestria will bow at your feet…”
rainbow dash giggled as she thought of her being the queen of equestria. Her getting to order around everypony would be awesome. So would the rainbow patterns and theme everything would have. But a mask couldn’t make you queen… could it?
“Wear me… and you shall be immortal”
to rainbow dash, every word that the mask whispered up to now had seemed… true. The more the mask spoke to her, the more her mind was filled with its light. At first she thought it was just her imagination, but now the only thoughts in her mind were of the mask’s promises of power. ‘Immortality?’ she thought, ‘if I was immortal, I could practice the most dangerous of stunts… and I couldn’t get hurt! I would master them, and the wonderbolts would definitely let me in!’
The mask seemed to know exactly what she thought, and It knew exactly what to say now to the, now easily manipulated, cyan Pegasus.
”wear me… and your flying skills will be so great, that the wonderbolts will keel over in jealousy, and will for sure accept you in… as their captain…”
rainbow dash’s mind went blank. Anything she thought, any doubts she had, disappeared, and were replaced by the mask’s promise, ‘wear me… and your flying skills will be so great, that the wonderbolts will keel over in jealousy, and will for sure accept you in… as their captain…’. Rainbow dash’s lifelong dream was to be a part of the wonderbolts. She wanted to be a part of them, more than anything else, but to be their captain? She lost herself in the thoughts of her being captain of the wonderbolts. The mask would make her dream come true…
“wonderbolts…” she said, in a trance. She picked up the mask from the nightstand. in a few seconds, all her dreams will come true…
she placed the mask on her face. She felt the warm glow of the mask surround her body. Tattered articles of blood-red clothing appeared on her upper body, while armor plating appeared and covered her legs. Rainbow dash knew something wasn’t right. She snapped out of her trance, but by then, it was too late. She couldn’t control her body anymore. Something else was moving her body for her. Rainbow dash tried to scream, but no sound came out, she didn’t even have control over her voice anymore.
The mask was controlling her every movement, and was controlling her own voice. The mask spoke for rainbow dash, sounding like a demonic, twisted version of her voice.
“ha-ha-haa! My gullible friend… I, am jack of rainbows. And you, Ms. rainbow dash…
YOU BELONG TO ME NOW!”
a tremor ran through equestria that day. Skies darkened, and ever colt, mare and foal in equestria succumbed to a petrified silence. The pony bearing one of the elements of harmony, the element of loyalty, was gone. In her place, was a vile, malevolent creature. After a thousand years of imprisonment, the dreaded jack of rainbows had returned to equestria, with a thousand years of raged built up inside. the time for her revenge on equestria had come.
