>Now. >Most ponies know from popular novels how thunder crystals work. Even Daring Do used them to daze her dastardly opponents!
>Thunder crystals are commonly made from degraded mana stores, by binding to them a shattering spell targeted inwards. >On impact, all the energy stored is released in an explosion. >Any enchanter will also know that the spell doesn't have to be targeted inwards. >When bound to the crystal's surface, it will detonate not only the mana store, but also any other magically potent crystal on contact. >This usually happens by mistake, and may cost the careless enchanter her life. >Something they don't teach in school is that a spellsmith skilled enough to mix elemental magic can make these detonators work on magically inert glass. >You just need a better power store.
>Luckily, you were friends with a certain Moondancer that made you these without asking too much questions. >Her design was pretty ingenious. >To arm it, you would need an evershine crystal from any common light source. >You then place both the detonator and the evershine snug against the glass. >Throw on a scarf on top, and the ensemble looks like something that came out of Rarity's store. It doesn't look dangerous.
>That is why the two pegasi crashing through you window got a load of high-velocity glass shards. >As they cracked the glass, the spell was released, launching the pieces back towards the force of the blow. >When an evershine gets drained, glows. Drained instantly, it exploded with a flash.. >That is how the bloody image of the last living moments of two rent-a-thugs got burned into your mind.
