Short yes, but I wanted to update it. Also it may be a little rubbish. Haven't done this in a while.
It was an uncertain morning in Ponyville. With the arrival of a random city in the distance, and an attack by a robotic fiend, citizens were cautious as they left the safety of their houses. As the ponies began their daily lives, ponies in construction hats with wagons of electrics and lamp-post parts and began to repair the damage done the previous day. Similar ponies arrived to fill in the hole from Metal Sonic's impact on the ground and others repaired damaged walls. Ponyville was quickly recovering. At the Carousel Boutique, Rarity was wide awake and downstairs, making breakfast for herself, Sweetie Belle and her 'house guest'. Sweetie was sat at the kitchen table, waiting patiently for her meal, aside her being two vacant seats. Rarity finished up, storing away cereals, drinks and other items. Using her magic, she picked up 3 separate breakfasts and set them at the table before turning to Sweetie Belle.
"Sweetie Belle, could you be a dear and waken Blaze?"
"The cat lady?" she replied
"Now Sweetie Belle, don't be rude. Her name is Blaze, not 'cat lady', and tell her breakfast is out" she asked sternly. Sweetie Belle rolled her eyes and left the table, and made for the stairs. Sweetie Belle made her way to Blaze's room and opened the door slowly. In the darker room, Blaze lay sprawled on the bed, and hand hanging off the side.
"Um...wake up Blaze..." Sweetie almost whispered at the statue on the bed. Blaze's eyes barely opened as she stared at the young pony. Sweetie backed away at her piercing stare. All of a sudden, Blaze flipped around to face the wall, ignoring her wake up call. Like a typical teenager. Sweetie Belle frowned as she walked up to the bed and picked up the sheet with her mouth, dragging it off, leaving Blaze uncovered. She groaned and turned back to Sweetie Belle.
"Can't I just have 5 more minutes?" she begged. Sweetie Belle simply shook her head in reply; she grabbed Blaze's clothes and threw them to her.
"Here are your clothes, and breakfast is ready. See ya downstairs!" and Sweetie left Blaze on her own. She got up and stretched, fixing her underwear so it was more comfortable before pulling on her regular clothes. She left the room and made her way downstairs, almost slouching as she did so. Suddenly, the ground shook as she went down the stairs, causing her to stumble....
"...Hey! Silver! Wake up!" quietly yelled Twilight as she stood by his bed. Silver didn't stir at all. "Hey, come on lazy-bones." as she shook him. Suddenly, he yelled and looked around the room in shock, turning to Twilight, who took a few steps back from Silver's outburst.
"WHAT YEAR IS IT?!" he shouted. Twilight shot him a confused look.
"...It's uh..." she began, caught off guard, "...2012"
"Right, cool" he replied with a sigh, holding his head in his hands. "Just making sure. Sleeping in another universe right after time travelling can mess you up...what's for breakfast?" he slyly asked. Twilight just stood there, confused.
"Hm? Oh, uh, we'll go to a cafe if that's uh, ok?"
"Sure. I'm starving", he leapt off his bed and made his way down from the platform. Twilight just stared at him. To her, he was just fascinating. Silver looked around the room, gazing the massive amount of books, suddenly he was interrupted by a soft knock at his back. He turned to see a little dragon, half awake.
"Oh uh, Sorry about that...which one are you again?” Spike sighed. Silver just stared at him.
"...Silver the Hedgehog..."
"Oh ok, just that there is 3 of you", Spike yawned loudly and walked off, leaving Silver thinking about what just happened. At that moment, a loud bang came from the town, Silver turned to the door...
"...Sonic! Sonic wake up now! Sonic! Soniiiiiic-"
"SHUT UP TAILS!!"
Sonic slowly opened his eyes to the pony standing by his bed. She looked awfully confused. "Oh, Tails is just a friend of mine; he's usually the one who wakes me up in emergencies"
"Yeah? Well we might have a problem..." Rainbow muttered. Sonic's ears instantly pricked up...
"Don't hurt us!" Several ponies screamed in terror as an unfamiliar foe returned to wreck more havoc. Metal Sonic hovered above the ground, staring at all the fleeing ponies. They were of no interest to him. His mission was to locate the Chaos Emeralds and Sol Emeralds. As he turned, he spotted 2 approaching enemies. Sonic and Rainbow Dash walked slowly up to him, Sonic had a confident grin.
"Round 2 then?” he boasted punching his fist into a palm. Rainbow didn't say anything as Metal Sonic just stared at them. Without a word, she flew right at him. Metal Sonic didn't even flinch. Suddenly a cyan blur tackled Rainbow Dash to the ground with a slam, dust kicking up from the impact. Sonic gasped and ran over to her, aiding her before looking at the second assailant...and his face turned to horror.
It resembled Rainbow Dash in many ways, but it appeared to be jagged and much more evil. Made of metal plates, the 'pony' just stared at them with piercing red eyes.
"OHOHOHO!!" boomed a distinctive voice. Rainbow and Sonic looked up to the familiar flying machine. I see you have met my latest creation!" Rainbow looked in terror.
"What...What is that?!" she demanded. Eggman just grinned.
"Meet Metal Rainbow Dash Mark I Prototype! She is made to be your equal in every way. Now neither of you will stand in my way of finding the emeralds!" Sonic and Rainbow Dash stood side-by-side staring at they're robotic counterparts. It was staring at a strange mirror. Sonic grinned.
"That's where your wrong Eggman, there is more than enough of us to take you down!" and as if by magic, Blaze, Rarity, Silver and Twilight ran up to them standing by their side. "And that's not all! Shadow is here as well!” Eggman's grin did not budge from his face. "You’re badly outnumbered. Give up"
"Heh, do you really think you can beat me? Not this time hedgehog! I'll simply pull into a different dimension separating you from anyone who can help you!" From Eggman's craft, a small screen appeared facing Eggman, bringing the attention of the group. "Let's see here...Tropical Resort? Nah....Everfree Forest?!" This brought the attention of the ponies more than anything. "Nah not yet, will have to go there soon...Crisis City?!" The name alone struck fear in Silver's heart. "...Nah...Oh! I found the perfect area!" The screen descended as Eggman held up a small collection of emeralds and slammed them into the console. Blaze stepped forward.
"Return the emeralds! NOW!" flames purged from her body as she yelled. Eggman just laughed at her.
"Oh, but I can't do that. You'd miss my great plan! When I find the remaining emeralds, I will bring chaos to both our world AND this one! I shall build Eggmanland on two levels of reality! DOUBLE THE EGGMAN....uh...LANDS! And now! Let us all be amused by Sonic and Rainbow Dash battling their counterparts, and failing to beat them!" He slammed a button on the console and Sonic, Rainbow Dash and their Metal impostors glowed brightly.
"Oh, not agai-" he started before vanishing. Everyone stared at where they once were.
"What have you done with them?!" Twilight demanded. Eggman kept his evil smile.
"What don't we watch and find out?" he snarled. The screen returned, facing away from Eggman for once. It suddenly re sized itself, becoming bigger. The screen flickered, before displaying an image...
Metal. Cold metal. That was all Rainbow Dash saw when she opened her eyes. It was dark; the sky was clouded with lightning striking a polluted city far from them. Among the city's buildings was a giant statue that resembled Eggman. It was like some kind of nightmare. She looked around to see Sonic getting up from the ground but as he looked around the area, his face turned to horror. They both stood on a metallic highway that was all rusted with age, like they were in the future, and a bad future at that. Above them lit up in neon was a sign, it read "Stardust Speedway" with some of the letter flickering out.
"Sonic? What is this place?" Rainbow Dash asked, her voice trembling a little.
"This is Stardust Speedway, a place where I once fought Metal Sonic before when I was younger, and this is obviously the future under Eggman's influence"
"The future? But how?"
"I'll explain later" he replied sternly. As they gazed down the long highway, 2 figures descended from above. Metal Sonic and Metal Rainbow Dash stared them down like a pair of hawks. Rainbow Dash took a few steps back from her own doppelganger.
"Sonic, just what is that thing?” she asked.
"Eggman has done this to me many times, but Metal Sonic is the only one that doesn't give up. Consider Metal...uh, Rainbow Dash your greatest rival. But it's just a bucket of bolts, you can take her!...oh, and you owe me ten gold bits" Rainbow Dash smiled nervously. Metal Sonic again signalled to the two of them to face them, though not in a fight.
In a race.
The two metal figures hovered slowly above the ground before suddenly turning away from them. The blasted down the highway away from them. Sonic and Dash turned toward each other and nodded, blasting away after them.
