The name's Danny. I'm your not-so-average 26-year-old brony who just so happens to be going through a portal to another dimension... I'm getting ahead of myself. The story begins about 3 days ago, when I arrived in D.C. It was 9 o' clock on a rainy Saturday...

Hendrixal23: Well, he's here.
HalfwayToLuger: Heck yeah! LOL
DannyBoy26: If "here" is D.C., then yes. I am here. Got to go, I've gotta get to my room.
I typed my reply as my bus pulled into my stop. A large, 4-star hotel in The Capital of the Free World. Free World, my butt. The hotel room itself cost about $1000 for 3 days, for crying out loud! And I was here for a WEEK. Oh well, only a small dent in my funds. You see, I was kinda in a windfall because of an "oncommon" venture. I had created a cheap, easy to read comic-style version of Great Expectations. It sold like hotcakes, strangely. I had enough to buy me anything! Well, except happiness, of course, but that's a cliche. I paid for the room and took the elevator up to it. Muzak. I hate muzak...
i arrived at my suite, and was amazed. It was everything you could hope for. Queen-sized bed, den with couch/bed... thingy... wide-screen TVs, stereo, tables, chairs, etc. I went to the nearest outlet and plugged in my laptop. I then walked into the bedroom and turned on the TV. Satellite. Sweet. I decided I'd give the Hub a look. My Little Pony? Maybe later. I set the DVR to record it. I then went to the phone and ordered room service. I needed some comfort food. Just need some darn comfort, after what happened. Explain? My parents disowned me, my best friend hates me now, and to top it all off, my girlfriend left me. Sadness is the root of all splurging. Oh well. After I finished the food, I laid down on the couch and tried to relax. As soon as I started to drift off to magic dreamland, though, I heard a knock at my door. "Who the..." I thought to myself as I walked to my laptop and turned it back on. I went to the peephole as it was powering on, but no one was outside. "Must have been my frazzled nerves..." I mumbled. I walked to my laptop and went to the chatroom.

Drowly: so how's dc?
DannyBoy26: Beautiful, as always. I thought someone was knocking at my door, but NO ONE WAS THERE! OoooOOoh!
HamString: Danny, you're probably going crazy. MONEY MAKES YOU CRAZED!
DannyBoy26: Heh... darn straight.
I sat down and waited. after about 10 seconds, another knock.
DannyBoy26: Another knock... BRB.
I set my computer down and walked to the door. I looked through the peephole to be greeted by a large red-iris eye. I moved back with a start. I then spoke. "Hello?"
"Can I come in?" a youthful, quiet female voice said.
"Who are you?" I said, going to unlock the door.
"Don't worry about that, let me in before someone sees me!" she said, still quiet but more worried.
I opened the door, and was immediately knocked down by a blaze of white and blue. The door was shut, and I realized who was in the room now. It was a PONY. A white pony wearing purple glasses with a music note on her flank. She looked at me and smiled. "Sorry, but I'm a bit rushed right now... I'm kinda out of it. I guess now's the time to introduce myself." She said, walking up to me.
"Actually, now's the time to explain WHAT THE HELL YOU'RE DOING IN MY WORLD." I said, getting to my feet.
"Portal. Now then, my name is Vinyl Scratch." she said, extending her hoof to me.
"Well, my name's Danny." I said, shaking her hoof. "Now, what do you mean portal?"
She looked at me, still smiling, and took off her glasses. Those brilliant red eyes shone back at me. "Well, Twilight was creating this portal that was supposed to take people to Canterlot quicker, and vice-versa, so that she could visit her parents more often. I volunteered to go, and ended up in this hotel. No one else is on this floor, thank Celestia, besides you." she added, looking at me happily.
"And why am I special?" I said, probably looking confused and semi-frightened.
"I can detect people of clear conscience and friendliness. It's how I became a DJ." She said.
"Uh-huh." I said. Suddenly, my computer beeped. They were trying to figure out where I was. "Um, can you wait a moment?"
DannyBoy26: Well, someone was at the door this time...
Drowly: pizza guy?
HamString: Grim Reaper?
Hendrixal23: Johnny Depp?
DannyBoy26: No, no, no. You won't believe me.
Drowly: try me.
DannyBoy26: There's a talking pony in my room.
HamString: Say what?
DannyBoy26: Yeah... Says her name is Vinyl Scratch.
HalfwayToLuger: A MLP character?
DannyBoy26: I think so. Says she was part of an experiment by Twilight Sparkle.
"Ahem? Danny?" She said, impatiently.
DannyBoy26: Gotta go. Bye.
DannyBoy26 has logged off.
"Yeah?" i said, turning to her.
"I think we need to focus on how to get me back home." she said, looking forlorn.
"Yeah, me too." I looked at her, and thought of something. "Do you like music?"
"Duh, I like music! I'm a DJ!" she said, her expression brightened.
"What kind?" i said, walking to the stereo.
"Techno, house, dubstep, electronica, normal stuff."
"Oh, okay..." I said, putting in a Deadmau5 CD. I hate Techno.
"Sweet, I love Deadmau5!" she said, looking like she was the happiest pony in the world. Frickin' techno.
I've gotta stop allowing strangers into my hotel rooms.
