As the time continues moving forward, Pinkie pie with blight smile that could make death smile brought the party over with her friends and the other ponies to the room filling like pool of random color balls. Nevertheless, Traveler gave the letter to Twilight which brought the party to stop before it gets started off the ground.
“Ladies meet the Traveler” Twilight introduces me to her friends, each have puzzle look on their face of who I was and why I was hiding myself front of them.
“So what the heck are you” ask AJ trying to put two and two together.
“Yes, who are you? I never have seen anybody like you in our town before.” ask over Rarity shortly after AJ ask in short same question.
“Promise me one thing, when I show you who am please don’t freak out” I said in concern tone, hoping for better reaction when I relieve to them who I was.
“Cross my heart, hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye.” Swear Pinkie Pie, as she pull out couple of cupcakes and start eating them in front others. I slowly grab my hood with tight grip getting ready for the responds I was about to get. With one tight pull my hood fell backwards on my shoulder with a thump sound like a leaf landing on ground. I quickly re-just my shade with simple push on them bring them closer to my eyes and brushing my short hair that was sticking up like if it had a life of its own. Slowly stare at ponies hoping they won’t freak out.
“ah, ah, ah, hu….man” whisper Fluttershy in such small tone who can debt whatever she say something at all or not just making sounds. I took glaze at Twilight seeing her face expression was different from others. Maybe it had do with the letter that I gave her,
“Twilight, why is there human in your home?” issue AJ as other stare both me and Twilight wanting some answers why I was there.
“He’s a D-Jumper” All of ponies look behind them to see two ponies walking in from the other room.
“Doctor, he a human!” spoke Derpy as she try to convince Doctor to escape house they ever in.
“What in Equestria is a D-Jumper” Question Rainbow Dash in annoy tone in her voice.
“And, why should we trust him he’s a human. He will kill us!” yell Rainbow Dash as she gets ready to attack me with full force of her strength.
“Dimension” explain the Doctor. Rainbow Dash turns around in even more puzzle look in her face.
“He gave me this letter, in the letter explains that the party went south and guest wanted kill the Traveler” assumed Twilight as she read the letter to her friends.
“But, he might fake it, to lower our guards” supposed Rarity in calm voices
“I trust him” said Doctor as he walks towards me walking pasting the group.
“How do you know me? I think never meet once.” I issue the Doctor, as he just smile and said
“No, spoilers” he chuckle in cheer tone
“Also, my important symbol, I only used in vital message to the princess is on the letter” Twilight said, as she show her friends the symbol on the letter.
“So is he friend or not?” ask Derpy as she getting baffle whatever I wasn’t kill them or not.
“No, Derpy he won’t hurt you he just a D-jumper meaning he is the only person to jump between dimension without ripe them apart. In short he came from the dimension 0 or other words “Land of the Gods” he give explanation
“My goal is get out this dimension.” I said make clear that only propose in addition to telling them that Twilight power might have enough power to fix my powers.
“How?” Ask Twilight, at the same time as I about explain the theory of her power mix with my. Spike and couple cop ponies burst through the front door and rush in. Three of them and me stare at each other with our months opens until
“Shoot the human” yell one the cop, like the matrix I ran past Twilight’s friends and leap through the door where Derpy and Doctor went through as the cops pull out their guns
“Everybody, meet me at metal horse at nightfall” I scream while putting my hood back on fast I could. I grab door and slam it in addition to break the door’s nub so that the cops can’t get in. As I hear them hitting the door with all their might. I took quick glaze all over the room until I spot the window. Without hashing I burst through window. While ignore the cuts on my arms I ran fast I could with also making sure my hood didn’t fly off my head. I ran towards groups’ trees knowing that I could hide there until nightfall. As, I climb the tree I hear cops looking for me and asking local if they spot me. I look at sun knowing it is while until nightfall.
Later that night I took quick look around to see most ponies were at home and cops are gone. I jump down and ran towards the train station hoping they be there. When I got to the train station I spot them and including the Doctor and Derpy with them
“Why you guys are here?” I ask the Doctor and Derpy while I walk towards the gang
“I couldn’t let one friends have all adventure” said the Doctor as he express amusement as Derpy had angry look on her face knowing she didn’t want be here.
“Hey, Traveler why you meet us here” ask AJ question the reasons why I want them come here.
“Thanks to Spike all cops are looking for in addition to to fix my powers we need quiet place where we won’t get disturb.” I said while I look for the train
“Twilight, are you series about help him” I look down to see spike staring at me.
“Spike he need our help, what kind pony if I refuse to help anypony.” Said Twilight, as she spots the train, coming towards us the station. As the train slowly down half way to the train station among complete stop with steam coming out like dragon resting for the night We got inside train and found room that all of us can get into. Before I go into the room with others a pony pulls on my cloak I turn around to see her in inform she must work for the train.
“I got message for you” she clarify
“548231” she said as she smile and move along to the other rooms. 548231, what hell it poses to mean, I question myself. I enter the room to see everybody chatting; I sat down next to door shutting it then putting my hood down. Everybody expect for the Doctor stop their chat and slowly stare at me wait to see if I make a move. I stare at him with little sin look most them look other way. Until
“Hey do human smile?” question Pinkie Pie as she took good look at my face
“Of course Pinkie Pie, all life can smile only one with mouth features” said Doctor, as Rarity ask Doctor in issue tone
“Why do you trust him so much? He human your pony, are worry that he might try to kill you?”Question Rarity, wanting some answers from him why he trust me so easily.
“Well, before I came to this dimension I was like him same body shape. But, unlike him when I came here I turn into pony.” Said the Doctor
“This is too stressful I going bed” said Rainbow Dash as she jump into bed, and began going to sleep
“All of us should get some sleep.” Said Twilight as all them beside me went off to bed to sleep. I couldn’t fall asleep the message was still bugging me
“548231 what could it mean” I thinking to myself. I look over to see all ponies sleep and including Spike.
“Man, I should be very happy right now it’s every bronies dreams to meet them.” I thought to myself. But, the more I kept thinking the more it I got more miserable.
“Don’t make friends, don’t settle down, just keep moving” repeat to myself in low tone I keep repeating three times. Shortly after I got up and, start walking through the train’s carts explore inside checking out wallpaper and pictures on the walls. I stare out window to see the desert with no life on it reminding of my home when I first discovered what happen. More I reflection of home I couldn’t help it and start to weeping, then out nowhere two random ponies walking by with their filly.
“Excuse me sir, are you all right?” husband ask while tapping on my back
“Get away from me.” I said in a rage tone. Both ponies back off as they heard my voice. Without word they start walking off, as soon they left I lend against window feeling nice cool glass reminding me of days I lean against the glass on raining day watch each drop slide cross the smooth glass.
“Traveler” I turn around to see the Doctor
“That cold to say to them, just wonder if you are okay.” He said in claim tone as I sit on the ground under the window.
“IF, you truly know me, then know why I can’t be sociable towards anybody.” I supposed in little distress tone.
“But, here you are and asking Twilight to fix no more liking controlling your powers” said Doctor, as I evade his eyes.
“Yes, I can’t control it, and every time I want settle down. I teleport to new dimension, I had fall in love 12 times. AND, every time I slowly accept to anybody teleport again.” I said as tears start over down my check.
“I know it’s hard on you, but it parts of you. You must acknowledge it” Doctor said as he tries to tell me he knows the pain that I going through
“You’re a time lord can you explain why my powers act weird in ever dimension that I go to?” I ask trying getting some idea of my powers.
“Well, have you had a magic 8-ball? Ask Doctor
“Yes” I answer to his question
“Do you always get the same answer?”
“Your power is like a 8-ball, my guess is that every time you jump is like ball shaken to get a different result ever time, like how you power to travel backwards in this dimension.”
“Tardis, it tells me if time has shifted or not, you have rare power. My guess it still been developing inside of you. All I can tell you are that once you accept it, it be lot easily to control it” said Doctor as he next to me I look up to see mirror with numbers on it.
“oh..my..god” I quick stood up forcing on the numbers on reelecting of the window
“Traveler, what wrong?”
“Come on!” Running back to the room and opening it
“Everybody! Wake up” As I yell in the room, I ran to next open to same thing again.
“Hey, what going on? Twilight ask while rubbing her eyes with her hoof.
“The train is going to crash” after shouting troughs words, the Doctor went to front of train to warning other ponies. As I open last door before entering other part of the train I spot filly from earlier all by herself. All sunned the train skip its rail flying off trains and sliding towards the wall of rocks.
“EVERYBODY HOLD ON SOMETHING!” I shout as everybody jump to the ground waiting for the impact. As the metal dead trap slide cross the hard ground not losing a since speed. For a second time as stop as no sound could be heard until
Loud sound, as the metal bend like plastic with the following flying glass. Flying towards every direction in the carts. Hitting my back, feeling like somebody hitting me with wet towel. Then the following snap a sound so small you could easily mess it. The skeleton of the cart start falling part from the inside each of the room. Object that wasn’t screw down fell in random direction. I look up to see everything set down until I spot small liquid slide cross in hallway as I look up to see a lamp holding on it last screw swing back and forward. As the screw escape its hold, I stare at lamp fall in slow motion. I close my eye fast I could wait for the explosion.
Sound so loud like a mad dragon waking up from it sleep. Explosion, torn apart the train to different part both slide in the opposite direction. Heating of the flame, burning everything in its path as the train rest next to the mountain. After the explosion I barely hear voices all I hear was ring in my ears like I in side of church ring didn’t show any time stopping
“WHERE MY FILLY” shout somebody outside of the flame cart
“STAY AWAY, IT TO DANGEROUS” shout another person
“Doc….tor…?” I spoke realize I barely breath in the smoke. Slowly I push myself upwards and look down. The smoke cutting my throat so bad I just wanting to cry
“AWWWW” young filly cry see their no mark on her, she was safe.
“I hear her” shout voice as other slowly became louder as they got closer. I slowly raise myself until
[Bluff = Throwing up blood]
I look next filly to see metal poll went through me slowly cover in red I need get out here fast. As I continue throwing up in addition to I push the hot metal like accident touching hot pot while cooking water. As I want to scream in pain I had to put it all in my head, I need get out metal trap to save the filly life. Continue throwing up blood and burning of my hands I push last burning wall to the ground to escape the cart. Taking few step away from the cart I final notice all ponies were okay but shock look on them. It took me while realize my cloak was extreme burnt to point it couldn’t hidden my face. All ponies’ expect Twilight’s friend and Doctor ever shock to see me. I look around and spot two ponies before the crash. I slowly walk towards them as frozen with fear in their eyes. I open my arms showing their filly
“Sam?!” both parent grab her and cry while hugging the filly. The father looks up at me
“Thank you” as he cries for fact the filly was safe
“Traveler” Derpy shout everybody noticing the metal poll sticking out my back. I grin and notice that slowly everything was fading. Before everything turn into pure black I hear and barely tell gang running towards to me. As I hear last words before I couldn’t stay awake anymore, all I could hear was
As I enter the town, I believe it was called Ponyville, I see all the earth ponies such as unicorns, and Pegasus all doing their normal duties on this nice warm sunny day. Everybody had a smile on their face and was having a good time like nothing was going to ruin their day. I’m hiding myself under this huge cloak with patches that hides my features, and am dirty as hell. It has seen better days, but knowing that I was the only human to be in Ponyville, I had to be real careful not to be seen by ponies knowing that they never had seen a human before. You see, it wasn’t by some accident or by some magic but with my powers that I had arrived in Equestria. However, ever since I got here my powers weren’t working right. If my powers hadn’t been acting up right now, I could be gone by now. Since, I’ll be stuck here for a while, until I figure out how to fix or regain control of my powers, I wasn’t going anywhere any time soon.
“Hey, are you new here?” I pause and turn around, to see Pinkie Pie. But as I’m about to speak, she gasps loudly and ran off in the opposite direction. I know what’s going to happen, but I didn’t have time for a party. I need to see Twilight as soon as possible. She might have some spell to help me regain control of my powers. As I continue walking through the town, most of ponies kept staring at me maybe thinking I was some kind of monster but they didn’t know how to act. I can’t blame, for being nervous for I am three times their normal height. But, I didn’t give them a glaze; the only thing going through my head was to find Twilight. As I see the tree house, I spot Twilight leaving her house with a happy grin on her face. She probably has plans to get a new book, or meet with her friends. As I’m about to shout her name to get her attention, suddenly my hand starts to glow with a bright light and then I teleport without realizing it and re-appear above a bath tub.
As I’m spitting out the water out my mouth, I look up to see Twilight in the tub too with a shocked look on her face. We stare at each other for few seconds until…
“AHAHAHAHAH! PEEPING TOM!” she yelled! I try to say something to her to clam her down.
I fell to the floor next to the tub as I slowly close my eyes; I see small purple scaly feet that say something to Twilight. I soon regain my conscious and I felt something a little tight on my arms and finally notice I was tied up. Then I spot Twilight staring at me with a look of anger. It looks like she’s trying to study me, but I was still wearing my cloak.
“I sent spike to get the cops. Now tell me why you fell into my tub” she commanded in a harsh tone. Before I could speak, I notice outside the sun was starting to rise.
“Twilight what time is it?” I questioned in a loud tone. She had a puzzled look on her face thinking why I needed to know the time. I realized what was going to happen, and I needed Twilight to help me.
“Twilight, I have little time to explain, but please go outside and look for me!” I command her hoping she does what I said. But, as she’s about to speak, I start to slowly fade away. I got a last glaze at Twilight’s face to see a shocked look on her face.
As I was walking towards the tree house, I notice Twilight opening the door and running towards me with an angry look.
“What in Celestia’s name is going on here? First you’re in my house and now you’re here” she yells.
“Um, Twilight this is the first time we have met each other.” I replied, and then I realize what was going on.
“We should talk in your house.” I said. She didn’t move at first until I told her I was going explain everything. She then nodded wanting some answers and she went back to the house with me. As we got inside the house, I sat on the floor and started to explain to her what was going on.
“Twilight, when was the last time you saw me?” I ask knowing what she s going to say.
“A few minutes ago, you were tied up over there.” she pointed to a pile of ropes.
“Then you told me go to go outside and look for you as started to fade away.” Twilight claimed as she sat on the ground across from me.
“You met my dead F.”
“Your what?” Twilight questioned with an expression on her face like someone had told her a bad lie.
“When a person from the future travels back in time to change anything to his or her past self will cause them to fade away from time itself.” I paused for a while to notice her face is even more questioning than before.
“I’m a D-Jumper. Most people call me the Traveler.” I said making it sound like an old legend.
“I sorry to ask, but what does the D stand for?” Twilight asked while thinking I was just crazy.
“Dimension, I’m a dimension jumper. When I came to your dimension, my power started to not work right and now instead of jumping through dimensions, I’m now jumping through time.” as I took a breath. Getting ready to respond to any question Twilight would ask.
“Let’s say, I believe you. How do you know my name, and also what you want from me?”
“In my dimension, you’re from a cartoon show called, My Little Pony. Friendship is Magic, and your talent is magic. That is why I need your help fixing my powers.” I said then started noticing Twilight’s face change.
“Cartoon?! You’re saying I’m not real!” Twilight shouted in an angry tone.
“No.” I said in a calm tone trying to calm her down. Twilight paused then asked why in my dimension they were cartoons.
“My dimension is zero, meaning a single person can create millions of dimensions without realizing it. In our dimension, we just think of them as imagination. But the truth is that once a person creates an idea, a new dimension is born.” Twilight’s eyes were wide with amazement like a child hearing about Santa Claus for the first time.
“Okay, then why is your name Traveler?” asked Twilight hoping to get some more information about me.
“I got lost going through dimensions but, once I finally got back home. I only found a dead planet. All life as gone and not a soul could be found.” I said in low tone. Twilight was stunned to hear what happened to my home.
“I let my old name die with the dead planet and from that time I’ve been jumping through dimensions trying to find a new home close to what my old dimension was, until I got stuck here.” Twilight put her hoof on my knee, and was about to speak until Pinkie Pie burst through the door with Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and the other ponies.
“Ha, I finally found you!” Pinkie Pie shouts out happiness and began to ranting about finding me. Twilight starts talking to her friends about me. I try to escape until Derpy’s hoof steps on my cloak to reveal me to the ponies. All the ponies stare at me with all their mouths open for few minutes because I assumed that this is the first time they have seen a human. For a few seconds, it was quiet to the point you can hear a pin drop.
“AHAHAH! HUMAN!” screams a pony. Every pony starts prancing.
“NO, no, no not like this.” I thought to myself while all the ponies were running around. However, I see Twilight and her friends with a shock with horror from seeing who I was.
“Let kill it, before it eats any of us!” shouted a pony in the background. Then all of a sudden most of the ponies grabbed pitchforks and torches. As they get closer to me, I’m trying to think a way to get out before they get to me. I took a step back and hit against an old clock. Then an idea hit me, with no time to waste, I stared at the clock while putting my hand in front of it.
“Please work!” praying my power would work right just for a minute. Then my hand starts to glow bright colors, blinding most of the ponies.
“Twilight!” I shout trying to get her attention.
“Write a letter telling your friends to cancel the party!” giving the order to Twilight hoping the letter might help me in the past. Twilight first paused then realized what I meant and knew what to do. In a quick second, she wrote a letter and gave it to me. She gave me a smile knowing they were all going fade away like me. I gave back a smile to her to.
I opened my eyes, seeing that I was outside again and there was no pony to see.
“Good, there’s no one here.” I said to myself as I start looking around me, until I spot past me about to wake up inside Twilight’s home. I ran as fast I could knowing this was the only chance I would get. I got to the cloak and grabbed its lower part and ripped it off. Past Traveler, look down to see me.
“Here give this to Twilight.” I handed the letter to past me.
“Goodbye Dead F.” while a small tear formed around past Traveler’s eye. I smiled and then slowly started to fade away hoping the note and tear of the cloak will help him.
“Also watch out for Derpy’s hoof!” I shouted as I faded away completely.
Slowly my opening eyes felt like I had taken a long slumber on warm summer grass; finally, I regain control over my eyes after what seems like a long fight to keep them open. I realized that I was in a white room. Four walls that were white as snow made it seem that no matter how hard I try to touch it, it would be impossible to do so. Sitting upwards I become aware of a black silhouette that looks like water mixed with some black dye. It was a few feet away from me; I slowly push myself off the ground.
Then out of nowhere a sharp pain went across my stomach. I'm touching my stomach to feel across it and looking at it. There was nothing, to be seen of why my stomach and towards my chest would be in pain. Trying to keep my mind off the pain, I slowly stab across room to the silhouette taking hard breaths every step I take. All of a sudden I can hear little chants from the silhouette who was sitting on the ground like a child who in trouble or alone on a playground.
"Why, why, why?" it kept repeating nonstop in low eerie tone.
"Um…hello" I said in composed tone.
"Why, why do you get live?" it turned around to face me revealing it was a kid, who I knew from my home dimension. He was a nine year old boy who I saw last time playing with his new baby sis on a playground as if it had happened today.
"Why, God hates you, and loves me, so why do you get to live?" he said in disturbing tone. As he gets up off the ground, a red glowing appeared in his eye like a demon watching his victim die. I took a couple of steps back to get away from him trying not to let my fear freeze me. As I continue walking backwards, I ran into a hard wall.
"What?" I question myself as I turn around to see more black silhouettes and dark red glowing eyes. I blinked to force my eyes to see their faces; to my horror it was my parent's faces with a look on them that would make any kid feel shill in fear.
"Your sad excuse for a son!" yelled father while my mother slapped me on the face causing me to fall to the ground with a loud thump.
"DO NOT BACK TALK US!" she shouted with a look of anger on her face that brings chills down my spine.
"But, it wasn't my fault!" as I said those words frozen in fear, I was thinking why I would say those words in my mind knowing I haven't seen them for over five years. Both parents grabbed me and force me to kneel on the ground, putting pressure on both my arms making sure I couldn't escape from their grip. Then another black silhouette appears in front of me. My eyes widen with terror to see a priest in his holy clothes looking down on me like a person who thinks they are better than the other person.
"You will submit to our lord!" He bellows like a bear that is hungry for some fish and starts hitting me with a rope. Over and over again he keeps hitting me, as I spit blood to the snow white like floor.
"This happens to little boys, who skip going to church." said mother in an icy tone with a grin that only a demon would love.
"You have no one to blame but yourself!" said father in a raging tone, and they gripped harder on my arms with rope going back and forward like clockwork nonstop as my blood spread all over the floor.
"Please stop" I cried in pain both by the rope and the pain in my body, as the priest stop hitting me after hearing my words.
"Why should we stop? No murder will go unpunished by our lord and savior!" the priest yelled while I became aware of hundreds more of black silhouettes surrounding me. I tighten my fist as tears are landing on my hand.
"I'm sorry." I said at the same time as crying even more. "I'm so sorry." I'm unable to control my tears, not noticing all the silhouettes starting to form together pulling my hair towards it. To my surprise, a new silhouette standing front of me that it looks like me. "Who are you?" I'm struggling to breath from the beating and the crying.
"I'm you, murderer." he grins like a rapist you see in the movies. "I'm your truth, and I'm going to tell you the truth. You murder everybody; all the people you hate and love." He snickered.
"No, I didn't murder anybody." I respond. Then he stabs me in the stomach where the pain began when I first woke in this room.
"Lies, all lies to help you sleep at night. Once you realize what you've done, you'll be happy to kill all of them. You wish you could get to see their faces as each one melts away from reality." he said as he twists his hand in my stomach causing me more pain. As he twists and twists the pain was unbearable.
"Why do I keep fighting? I'm a murderer." before I finish my thought, a voice came out of nowhere in my head.
"Traveler, TRAVELER!" the voice was shouting. It almost sounded like the Doctor.
"Doctor?" I reposed in my head in low tone.
"Traveler, you need snap out of it!" said the Doctor as the silhouette started laughing.
"What?" I thought to myself as I looked down noticing the silhouette slowly devouring me. With no time to waste, I grab hold of his arm trying to pull it out of me. As the pain kept getting worst I was having a hard time pulling it out.
"Traveler, we need you!" after I heard those words, the pain all of a sudden slowly stopped hurting.
"They need me." I said in a low tone with a blank look on my face.
"What did you say murderer?" ask silhouette not realizing what I said.
"I said." grabbing his head as my hand touch his head it surprised him.
Both our heads meet, as he falls backwards to the ground.
"I said… they need me" I said in calm commanding tone.
"You don't get it, you're dead. And, as long as you're here I make sure you suffer." he yelled as he slowly gets up. Without giving him a chance get up, I slam my arm to his neck sending him to the ground with a loud boom.
"Even if I'm dead I'm not going give you the pleasure without fighting for it." I said as I get in position getting ready for brawl with my dark silhouette. He gets up spiting some blood out of his mouth.
"So murderer you're…" before he can finish, I land other hit. As I'm thinking I landed a punch in the head, I realize he sent a foot to my chin causing me to fall backwards to the ground. He laughs as I gasp harder than before. I got up as fast as I could and ran towards him sending another punch, but he avoids it like he sees it coming.
"I know all your moves murderer. There's nothing you can surprise me with." he grins as he ran across the room to me sending a punch to my stomach causing me to kneel on the ground, as blood escaped from my mouth like a waterfall.
"Any last word murderer?" he poses.
"I'm not a murderer." I said in a low tone then spotted a marker on the ground. It was a sharpie. Then I realized that this was the same sharpie that caused all my troubles from the beginning.
"DIE MURDERER!" as he tried to punch me, I rolled to the side and ran towards the sharpie grabbing it. Why is there a sharpie here I thought to my self? As I watched the silhouette charge towards me, I finally realized why I was here with the dark silhouette and the marker. Without thinking I wrote down the math problem on my hand not including answer for it.
"If you solve it, you'll never get rid of the pasts of all those people." he screamed. As I wrote down the answer, I responded to him.
"I know." a flash appears on my hand like before then a light turns pure black sucking everything towards it. The dark silhouette put all his might in trying not to be sucked into the black void. I push my feet with all their might charging towards him.
"What are you doing?" he yells in horror as I get closer to him.
"ENDING THIS!" I slam into his chest; hearing a loud scream like somebody was ripping apart. After few seconds, the void stops and I open my eyes to see there was no more of him or the other the silhouettes. I look at my hand where the void was to notice a mark was on top of my hand. Looking closely, it was almost looks like a clock.
"TRAVELER, TRAVELER!" out of nowhere groups of voices start shouting but none of them sounded like the Doctor.
I heard loud cracks, as flashes of light appeared on the ground inside the cracks on the ground. The whole room was shaking.
"What's, going on?!" As my body shakes from the ground, it was getting hard to see. I dropped to the ground as the shaking keeps getting worse by the minute. As, it is slowly getting hard to move, I keep hearing the voice getting louder and louder. Until, there is a big flash. As I try to see after the flash I notice a couple of color drops at first. I thought it was spots I was seeing, but as my eyes re-focus, I see Twilight, AJ, Rarity, Dash, and also the Doctor looking at me.
"….Wh…at..going…now?" I stuttered the question realizing it hard to speak as well as breath.
"We thought we lost you, but thanks to the Doctor we were able save you" said AJ looking at the Doctor from the puzzled look on my face.
"But, he doesn't know much about the human body." I state in a weak tone.
"Ha, no I do have some knowledge to help different type of doctor. Without my knowledge you have died." The Doctor pointed to a pony that I had saved their filly earlier. Looking at my stomach, I noticed that the pipe was gone.
"I did the best I could without the proper gear. You can't heal right." The pony said as his point was they need to do a proper fixing.
"How?" I ask. Every pony looks at me.
"The pipe went through my heart. There is no way I can still be alive." I state as I try to get up.
"No, don't get up. And for the pipe, we aren't sure. Most ponies die but you still are alive even though it did huge damage to your heart." said Twilight, as she scans my body trying to understand it.
"Well doctor, you did good job" said the Doctor to the other pony.
"Thanks" he replied.
"Was that all in my head?" I question myself, looking at my hand to see if the mark was there. But it wasn't there.
"HEY EVERY PONY, WE GOT a RIDE" shout Pinkie Pie as she and Fluffershy ran towards us.
"How is he?" ask Fluffershy to AJ.
"He going to be A okay" she replied in happy tone. I look around at the spot I was in.
"What wrong?" ask Derpy, noticing I was getting restless.
"Where's my cloak?" I questioned what they have done with it.
"We were washing it. It got dirty from ash and blood." replied Rarity as she handed me my cloak. The smell of old clothes was gone. As I put it on covering myself, the second train rolled by.
"Are you guys okay?" ask the engineer. Everybody shakes their head to show they are fine. Slowly each of us climb in. And, finally they got me into it as well.
"Is that every pony?" ask the train person.
"Yep." said Spike as he put me against the wall.
"Alright, next stop, Equestria!" He shouted as I slowly start to fall sleep. I gazed outside the window thinking what going on with me. Slowly I close my eyes for a good night's sleep.
After a few hours go by, I hear heavy breathing down on my sheet and I slowly open my eyes to see me! I was covered with blood and it took a while to notice I missing an eye and also an arm was gone too!
"What…who?" I was lost in words at seeing me like this.
"Psst… I need to give you, me a last message!" he said as he lend towards me.
"Don't trust them."
"Who?" I ask as he leaned back and smiled at me.
"Just don't trust them." As said again as he slowly faded away. However as he faded away, a little letter dropped on my chest. Grabbing it slowly due to my pain, I opened it to see a phrase "run at 3". Hearing the door open from other room, I quickly hide the note thinking a future me was warning about Twilight and her gang. Thinking they were too accepting, about me and the trouble we were in, but it was just a different pony that walked past me to the other cart.
"What's going on now?" I question myself as I fell back to sleep. Here's hoping tomorrow it will all make sense.
As the train start slowly slowing down towards the station, I grab the sheet from the bed that I was lying on and wrapped it around me to cloak myself. I opened the door softly and without waking others like the times you try to leave your house without waking your parents up, I walked as best as I could towards the end of the train. Noticing all the ponies sleeping peacefully, I was a bit envious of them but I had to keep moving forward.
As, I got to the end of the train, I opened the back door and checked the ground as the train continued to slow down. Without any second thoughts, I jump off the train hitting the ground as I bite my lips to avoid screaming in pain as my wounds start to reopen. I slowly got up noticing I was starting to bleed a little. I pulled the cloak close to my chest to stop the bleeding as I press forwards towards Canterlot. I look around to see where to enter.
In few moments I notice a small sewer just big enough for me to get in. Walking towards the open sewers, I see the train fully stop at the station and I barely hear the conducer shouting to the passengers. As I got to the entrance, it smells sweet; I pause to think how ironic of all places it had to be the sewers that smelled sweet. I start walking in the sewer even though I couldn’t see where I was going so I keep one of my hands on the wall to let me know where to walk. I continue to walk along the long sewer to the point where I feel on the wall that there is a turn to the right and I slide around the corner. All of a sudden, I start coughing but as I touch my mouth the texture feels like blood.
“Damit.” I said in a low tone as the coughing soon passed. I continue to walk to the point where I spot a little light ahead in the tunnel. Shortly after I get to the source of the light and notice a ladder designed for a small horse to climb. I start climbing the ladder and slowly push the manhole upwards to look around to see where I was. The first thing I notice was that no one was around. I push the cover off the hole as I climb out of it. Pull the cover back on once the cover was back on the manhole, I turn around.
I fall on the manhole with loud thump.
“Ow!” I said rubbing my butt as I try to stop the pain. I look up to see what I hit. My eyes are wide and my mouth drops open like a person who sees the President of the United States at your door. To my surprise I see a large pony with blue fur and crown on her head.
“Luna?!” I gasp in shock as my little fan in my head took over.
“Sorry we…I mean I bump into...” She said as she had a confused look on her face like a person who had found something but doesn’t know what to do with it.
“Umm… No problem.” Trying to form words, I start to cough again. I quickly cover my mouth with my hand.
“Here, this will help you stop coughing.” She magically handed me a cup that smelled like sweet honey.
“Um..thanks.” As I stood up and drink the tea, I realize it was tea. Usually I hate drinking tea, but it was very helpful stopping my coughing.
“What’s your name?” ask Luna watching me drink the tea. I pause for a moment, looking both at Luna and the tea she gave me.
“My name is Traveler.” I say as I bow my head thanking her for the tea.
“Traveler, I may be new to the modern world, but I that not young enough to be fooled. That not your real name.” she said in sharp tone.
“Tell me your real name or I will call the guards.” She threatens, as her eyes stare straight at me like they can see can see my soul.
“Shoot.” I thought to myself, thinking maybe this is the message my future self-told me about. But, I had no other choices.
“Okay Luna, let’s play a game, each of us may ask a question and get an answer.” I said as I tried to avoid talking about my name. I make myself comfortable while checking the area making sure there was no one around.
“Don’t worry. Most of the ponies around are asleep by now.” She claimed.
“Okay, I will go first, my first question is, what is your real name?” asked Luna.
“Traveler; why are you alone?” I responded back as fast as I could.
“There are no ponies to hang out with, during my time of control. Why do you call yourself, Traveler?”
“The reason is I have no home to call for myself, so I must continue moving forward. Do you have friends?”
“No I’m alone. Why do you have no home?”
“Because of my sins from what I have done to my kind. Do you need a friend?”
“Yes” Before she continues speaking, we start hearing voices coming towards us. Without any thought I start running in the opposite diction of the voices.
“Princess Luna?!” One the voice spoke, as I turn into an alley and lean against it to hear what they had to say to make sure Luna wouldn’t rat me out.
“Princess is okay?” asked one the voices shouting out to the others.
“Yes, just chatting with a friend.” After she said that, I knew she was trying to help me. As, I wait in the alley in the cold alley, I see why Luna turned evil to begin with. Seeing that there was no one around, made the area felt cold and lifeless. I look around the corner to see sheets blowing in the wind on the cold ground strangely reminded me of my home on a cold summer night just sitting on the street thinking my life is nothing. But now I wish I could go back home and sit on those cold streets again. I grab a couple of them and cover myself getting rid of the other one as it was covered with blood and sewer water. I start walking towards the other side of the street. Thinking it will be safer place for me, while I continue to walk until…
“Please no.” I turn around the corner to see two griffins bugging a pony.
“LYRA?” To my surprise, to see her there in the first place.
“First Luna, and now Lyra; what are the odds.” I thought to myself.
“Come on, time for some pay back.” one the griffins laugh, while I slowly walk towards them making sure to not make any sounds. So far, neither the griffins nor Lyra had noticed me yet. Lyra looks down and spots me a few inches away from the griffins, pointing my figure on my mouth telling her don’t say anything. I stood next to the griffins noticing their claws could easily kill me but I had to do something. I tap one of them on their shoulder trying to get its attention.
“What?” he shouted as he turns around.
I punch the griffin as hard as I could in face sending him falling backwards to the ground. Before the other griffin can turn around, I kicked him sending the griffin flying towards the ground. However, unlike the first one who is unconscious, Before I had kicked his back claws grabbing and tear the cloth I was wearing. Revealing my hands, Lyra’s mouth dropped down as I try to cover them with his tail rap and pull causing me to fall over. I open my eyes to see the griffin stand up about to strike with the full force of his strength.
“Slow down, slow down.” I keep repeating in my head over and over like an old record player repeatedly wishing that the griffin be slow enough to dodge. But, as I watch in horror that my life was about to end on a crazy planet that hates humans, I close my hands so I don’t have to see. Then my hand starts burning again like the time in my dream when I was able to divide by zero.
“You’re such an idiot.” I heard that voice again, thinking that I was in Hell. I reopen my eyes to see that my hand was glowing and all around me looked like a green jelly color. Then I realize that the griffin has stopped in place; I push myself out from under the griffin. I look at my hand and notice a clock spinning but both the big hand and the little hand are frozen in place. I slowly place my other hand over to see what it feels like. But, has my hand covers it, the clock stops and then slowly time starts moving forward again. The griffin strikes the ground and is stunned to see me gone.
“What the…” he looks around and spots me.
“How….” He questions as he runs towards me with another full run not planning let me go. Without any pause, I tap my hand again and like before all time stops in place like a person who pressed the pause to stop a movie in place. I realize that I can stop time any time I want.
“Hello again.” I look up to see the black silhouette of myself from my dream is there leaning against the griffin that was floating in mid-air.
“It’s you!” I spoke with fear in my voice as I was shocked to see him again. My heart pounds as I watch him with a scary stare and a smile with an evil grin like a bully finding fresh meat.
“How have you been, I missed you. I was inside you for long time and now you’re inside of me.” He said with the happiest tone.
“What?! I am out here and you’re….” Trying to find words to put it, trying to stop my mind from spinning so fast from confusing how and why he is here.
“Well you didn’t kill me, I’m part you. I’m the reason why you can do this” as he shows that around us is the green jelly air.
“The only way you can get rid of me is by putting a gun near your head, and pulling the trigger.” As he make his hand into a gun shape and points it towards me like he wants to shoot me.
“What do you want, my soul?” I ask as I watch him with a harsh look, thinking that he is a demon or something like that.
“No, I’m here for one reason and that is to make you suffer for all those people you killed.”
“That makes no sense. I only know a few people. Why I must suffer for all my kind.”
“Well, I hear all of them. You may think your little black hole killed all of them. But, no you just crushed all the souls into one small can and part of your soul is there as well. However, because your soul is the dominant one you didn’t get sucked in. Now every soul in all of life is in me.” Then in a flash he put his head on my head then out nowhere I can hear millions of cries of pain of people screaming. Tears roll down my cheeks as my heart is heavy from hearing all those people suffer. It was getting harder to breathe, as the other me spoke in a low calm tone that can bring a chill down a person’s spine as he grab my head to make sure I can’t escape the crying souls.
“Suffer, suffer, suffer, SUFFER!” He keeps screaming as it was getting harder and harder to breathe. With all my strength, I kick him in his knee hoping he will let go.
To my surprise, I see that it works. Slowly I was able to breathe again.
“NO! I WON’T LET YOU ESCAPE AGAIN!” he yells in a demon voice as he charges towards me. I hit the clock on my hand again letting time resume again. Like clockwork, as time moves, he vanishes at the same time. However as I took deep a breath of relief just to be glad he is gone and promising myself not to touch clock again, I realize I forgot about the griffin who was still in the motion of jumping at me.
I scream in pain as I hit my head on the ground. It took me a while but I notice the griffin was on top of me pining me down so I can’t escape.
“No place to run jerk!” He laughed in a raging tone as he slowly raised his claw. I didn’t know which was worst, having him about to claw my face part or letting the other me torture me for my sins. Different choices were going through my mind as I was stuck between two hard places until…
My lips lock with his, now I didn’t care if it was gay. It was the only way I think of that might stop him from striking me and also give me more time to get an idea for escape. He froze as our lips stayed locked not knowing what to do. I was holding because I didn’t want to die or call the other me again. For few seconds both of us didn’t move as our eyes lock to each. One was confused and other was scared.
“HEY!” we both pull back and look in the direction of the voice. A pony was flinging towards the griffin kicking him in his face like in the action movies. Sending him flying, it was…
“LYRA?!” to my surprise as she looked at me trying give me a thumbs up even though she had no hands.
“Great, I now know how Bon Bon feels.” I stated.
“How?” she questioned me of how I knew her partner. But before she could talk to me...
“That hurt Lyra! And you why did you kiss me?!” He shouts but his voice sounds like a girl? I roll over.
“Um, I know this question is out of place, but are you a girl?” I ask while I lay on the ground. Both of them look at me with more confusion than before.
“Umm” She paused as I lay there with a stupid look on my face.
“Yes” she said as I ask her another question.
“But your voice sounded like a dude earlier.” After I said this, her face slowly started to laugh.
“ ha ha, I have a problem that when I get mad my voice deepens.” She explained.
“Okay, umm is she a girl too?” I point to the unconscious griffin on the ground.
“No he is my younger brother, and to answer the other question, we have gotten out of control debt. Sky pirates or the grounded wizards, and one thing led to other.” She stated.
“I was going to win until you showed up” chuckled Lyra as she walks to me I get up. I was feeling bad but also glad for stopping them before things got bad between them.
“Sorry I punched you, my name is Traveler.” I bow to show that I’m sorry, the griffin bows her head too.
“My name is Sam.” She said as she walks towards her brother to wake him up.
“Hmm…Mommy?” he said in low tone as he rubbed his eyes.
“OW!” He shouts as the pain that was coming from his head. I quickly cover my hands while the griffins are talking to each other.
“So?” asks Lyra as she looks at me with eyes of wonder.
“What brings you here? Can you open a jar, what’s it like having those, can I touch them, and are you human?” Lyra is asking me all these questions without taking a breath. He was puzzled at first then remembering that the fans had made her want hands badly.
“Umm no, same as you having hooves, no, and yes.” trying to answer all her question in the order she asked them.
“So thing, what brings you here?” asked Lyra repeating her first question as the two griffins both look up to see what I’m going to say. I thought for a bit why I came here in the first place.
“There is something that is not right.” I said as all of them had a look of puzzlement on their faces. “How you do you guys know what a human is, and why there such hatred towards them.” All of them look at each other seeing if any of them had an answer. Then they start thinking about it until something in their heads click.
“Your right; I was told as a young filly that humans were a myth. But, recently there’s been so many new laws saying if see any humans kill or capture on sight.” Said Lyra.
“So you’re human?” asked Sam as I nodded to her question.
“I told Twilight and her friends to come with me to get here but” as I pause remembering the message that future self gave me, I stop saying anything else thinking they may bad guys.
“The point is, I must see your queen.” I said in a commanding tone.
“You mean the Princess.” Lyra corrects me.
“Sure” showing I didn’t care that much about the title of their leader.
“If you want see the Princess, you have to wait. And waiting is about 3 years. Then you can see her.” said Lyra, as I look at the castle looking for any opening to get in. Thinking there must a fast way to see her.
“Sorry about the punch but I need to get going.” hearing some of the ponies about to wake up soon. Looking down the street, I ran down to other alley. Following the alley, I got to the other alley and notice two guards walking around then turn towards a different street. I make sure they were gone, my next plan which I think that this was stupid but there are no other choices. But, as I turn my face, it is met with Sam?
“What?! What are you guys doing here?” I question in harsh low tones as they smile like they having a good time.
“Well, a human is about to break into the castle to see the Princess who made a law against humans. And, you want us go home like nothing excited is going to happen. FUCK THAT, we going with you to see what’s going to happen now.” Teased Sam as Lyra kept nodding her head like asking a kid if he wants to go to the candy store. As I look at them, I notice their faces show they’re not going to change their minds.
“Fine, just be careful.” I stated as we notice the sun was breaking the blue sea of darkness. “How much time do I have left in this dimension” I thought to myself as I look at the clock on my hand as it ticks like a normal clock.
“Next stop the castle!” shouts Lyra as other two griffins shout “yay”. I stare deep at the castle, thinking what is inside waiting for me.
