Rainbow spread her wings a little wider as she soared above the little town of Ponyville. She tapped on her earpiece to turn on her radio. For some reason it wasn’t working well. Maybe she was too high? She zoomed down a little lower and she heard the words…Holes……dimension……dangerous. Then it cut off.
That didn’t sound good. Rainbow paused for a second to adjust the frequency that she was hearing and didn’t flap her wings. For a moment she was falling fast, and then her steady wings caught her just before the ground. Frowning she landed, noticing a swirly hole nearby.
“What in the world is going on? Rainbow wondered. She tapped on her earpiece again and now that she was on the ground, it worked. “I knew I should have gotten a Cloudsdale-issue radio,” she grumbled. But then she heard the radio.
“Suspicious holes have been appearing all over Equestria that seem to lead to another dimension. Strange creatures have been spotted there and are quite dangerous.”
Then it started replaying over again.
“Oh so that must be what that is” rainbow thought.
She went up to the hole and cautiously poked a hoof through. She could FEEL something on the other side. CREEPY. She yanked her hoof back through, but she got over balanced and tumbled over through the hole. For the second time today she was tumbling through space only this time she was too shocked to fly.
* * * * * * * * *
She landed in a small red chair amidst a mechanical room. "Ow. That really hurt! Where am I anyway?" Then she looked up and saw a screen showing a strange thing.
“Hello Agent P. Doctor Doofenshmirtz has been…”he looked up then. “You’re not Agent P!! How did you get in here?”
Rainbow just ignored it. This was serious. Where the heck was she, and why was she there? Today was busy, the whole, audience with a goddess and her audition for the Wonderbolts!
“What is this place anyway?” she asked the video thing.
“Agent P’s secret lair,” said a high pitched young colts voice.
“Carl, I told you not to tell anyone!!” said the strange human’s voice.
“Whatever,” Rainbow thought. “I’d better get out of here.”
She flew over to the strange green tube and started flying up it. Maybe it’ll lead me out of here, she thought. But no, of course not. She only came to a grassy yard in which two more of the strange things were standing. Alright she was getting annoyed. If this was a joke, it seriously wasn't funny. She landed and walked up to the things. One had a red mane and one had a green mane.
“Um, excuse me, but what are you?” the red one asked.
“I’m a who not a what. Name’s Rainbow dash, greatest flier in all of Equestria,”
Rainbow responded, zipping around the humans and leaving her signature rainbow trail. The green maned one spoke up next.
“What my brother meant was, what kind of animal are you?”
Rainbow answered, “a pegasus, duh. What are YOU?”
The red one opened his mouth to answer, but was interrupted by the gate to the backyard opened and a small one of the things with a black mane walked through. Her eyes got wide when she noticed Rainbow.
“I don’t mean to be rude,” she said directed at Dash, “But whatcha doing’?”
Rainbow rolled her eyes at the silly comment and looked back at the red maned human. “So, what are you… things?” she asked rudely.
“Uh, we’re HUMANS. Like, only the biggest race of animals ever,” replied Red-mane. “Now, what are you doing in our backyard? And how’d you come up through the tree?”
Rainbow couldn’t believe that these things didn’t know about the land of Equestria and the world that surrounded it.
“Bro, you are so not the biggest race of animals ever. Those are ponies. And also, there’s a weird place that somepony called “agent P’s lair”. I fell through a portal and landed there.”
The boys looked up at her.
“Oh Ferb remember that time with Evil Doof and the robots? It must be talking about that,”
said the red one to the green one, Ferb. Then he said to Rainbow,
“what do you mean a portal? And also, humans are the dominant race here, not ponies?” rainbow thought he was being quite rude to ponies.
“I come from Equestria which is a place where ponies rule. And there are other animals, like my friend Gilda the Griffin. Plus, I’m not an “it” I’m a she!”
The boys looked shocked at that. They and the girl just stared at Rainbow as she flew angrily overhead. She wished one of her friends were here. Twilight would know what to do. Times like this she could use a horn, but she loved her wings. But what to do about this pesky being stuck in another dimension problem? These annoying "humans" could be useful since they did know more about this world than she did. So she landed on the ground next to one of the humans.
“So, you three could be useful. First up, tell me your names…”
Twilight: 3 hours later
“Where is that insufferable Pegasus!? SPIKE!!” yelled the purple unicorn.
The small dragon ran in.
“Yeah Twilight,” he asked.
“Do you know where Rainbow Dash is? She was supposed to meet me today at twelve and it’s now 1:30!” she yelled, practically blowing over the poor dragon.
“Um, nopony has seen her in a while. When Rainbow Dash is gone, ponies tend to notice.”
Twilight facehoofed at that.
“Look, do you have a crush on Rarity or Rainbow Dash? I’m going to go look for her.”
And with that she pushed past Spike and headed out the door of the hollowed out tree. She went to Rarity’s beauty salon first and barged in, clearly angry. The white unicorn looked up, startled at the sudden interruption.
“Hello Twilight darling. If you want a salon visit, you’ll have to wait dear. I’m busy with Carrot Top right now.” The orange maned earth pony smiled at Twilight.
“Oh, no thank you Rarity. I don’t need a salon appointment,” said Twilight.
“I was just wondering whether you had seen Rainbow Dash. It’s a matter of extreme importance.”
Rarity thought for a moment, looking puzzled then replied to her violet-maned friend,
“Why, no dear. I haven’t seen her since she came to get some feather care a few hours ago.”
Twilight rushed out the door and then stuck her head back in.
“Thanks for the help Rarity,” she said before rushing out again.
Rarity shook her head.
“Now that, Carrot Top, was the strangest encounter I have ever had with Twilight.”
As Twilight walked through the quaint town of Ponyville; she wondered where her colorful maned friend could be. She scanned the cloud line for any sign of her, but no, the rainbow Pegasus wasn’t taking a cloud nap today.
“Darn it,” Twilight thought, “If I don’t find Rainbow soon, there’s going to be a big problem, since Princess Luna asked to talk to her. And Luna isn't the best at anger management.” So she decided to see whether Applejack knew where Rainbow was.
She trotted up to the Apple family farm, where Applejack was busy bucking apples. As soon as she saw her friend, however, she stopped and wiped off her forehead.
“Well, howdy Twilight. What brings you ‘round these parts?” asked Applejack in a familiar southern drawl.
“Have you seen Rainbow Dash? Princess Luna requested her, but I haven't seen her."
Applejack cocked her head for a moment while she thought.
"Wha, no Twilight, ah haven't seen her since she came for some cider a while ago." said the orange earth pony.
"Thanks. So you're absolutely sure you haven't seen her in the last oh, two hours?."
"Sorry Twa, ah'm sure." said the mare, enunciating clearly.
Twilight snorted angrily and ran of.
Applejack stared at her purple friend disappearing into the distance.
"That was weird." she said.
"Eeyup." said Big mac, who had somehow appeared next to her.
* * * * * * * *
Twilight ran to Fluttershy's cottage. She was very worried now. Where the heck could her friend be? She knocked on the door of the cute woodsy house Fluttershy owned. A yellow Pegasus mare came to the door, only poking her head out.
"Oh it's you Twilight," she whispered, opening the door the rest of the way. "Do you need something?"
"Oh hello Fluttershy," Twilight said. "Would you happen to know where Rainbow Dash is? She's due for an audience with Luna."
The pink maned pony shook her head. she withdrew from the door and made to close it but before she could, a small orange Pegasus popped her head out from behind Fluttershy.
"You're looking for Rainbow Dash? Can I come with you?"
Twilight was hesitant. Should she let the little filly come with her? Well, she did seem so eager to help.
"Alright," twilight said, "But here's a rule: you absolutely have to do what I say."
The filly nodded her head eagerly. Twilight grinned and she and Scootaloo walked away from Fluttershy's cottage.
"So Scootaloo, do you have any idea where Rainbow could be?" asked Twilight.
"Well, we could try looking at her very favorite spot," said the Pegasus with a little grin, "The cloud mall!"
"Um, Scootaloo, I can't fly or walk on clouds." said Twilight in a very "Duh" voice.
"Well, Twilight, aren't you a unicorn? Cast a flight spell on yourself or a walk on clouds spell!" said the orange filly in the same "Duh" voice.
Twilight facehoofed at her own ridiculousness and for a second her horn glowed with magic. Then a pair of purple wings appeared on her back.
"Can you fly okay on your own?" she asked the filly.
"Yeah." nodded Scootaloo.
* * * * * * * *
When they landed on the ground outside the Cloudsdale Shopping Center, everypony stared at the "alicorn". One stallion bowed down on the cloud fluff.
"W-were you s-s-sent b-by the p-p-p-princess?" said the poor frightened stallion.
"relax," Twilight said with a laugh. "I'm just a unicorn who gave herself wings with her magic."
The pegasus stallion just shivered more.
"You can all get up now," said Scootaloo.
They didn't pay any attention and kept shivering.
"Honestly," Scootaloo said, "These ponies do not have backbones."
Twilight nodded and opened the door using her magic. Scootaloo smiled at her and then they trotted inside the mall.
"So, where would Rainbow go in this mall?" asked Twilight, looking down at the filly curiously.
"Um, Rainbow really likes Cloud Julius, which is a smoothie shop. We could check around that area." said Scootaloo.
"Okay thanks!" said the unicorn cheerily, smiling at her sorta-new friend. Scootaloo grinned back.
"RD was right, Twilight. You are pretty nice-" Twilight smiled happily "-for an egghead!" Scootaloo fell over laughing, while Twilight just rolled her eyes at the foalish humor.
"Now, minus the sarcasm please, lets go!" said the annoyed unicorn.
* * * * * *
When Rainbow wasn't at Cloud Julius, they tried Flap, a pegasus clothes store. When she wasn't there, Twilight suggested Barns and Nobles, the all-inclusive bookstore. But when they had looked all over the mall and there wasn't any sign of Rainbow, they sat down on a bench.
"Oh Twilight we were so sure!" said the filly.
"Yeah Scootaloo. I'm sorry. I don't know where she could be."
Twilight noticed the Pegasus staring at a swirly hole down a corridor.
"Let's go through that portal Twilight!"
And with that ridiculous statement, she was off. She zoomed through the portal before Twilight could stop her. Twilight knew it wasn't a good idea, but she couldn't help it. She went after the filly through the portal to the Phineas and Ferb dimension.
* * * * * * *
For a while I was tumbling through the air and -embarrassingly enough- screamed a lot. I landed with an oomph on hard metal-y floor.
"Ow." I moaned, rubbing her flank. "That hurts."
Then I looked up and realized it was going to hurt a lot more unless I moved. So I scrambled out of the way, since I had no desire to become Scoot-a-pancake. Still, even though I was out of Pancake range, I flinched when Twilight landed next to me with a thud.
"Hi Twilight." I said. "You still have your magic wings?"
"Good," I said with a laugh, "Because it looks like going up that is the only way out of here."
I gestured to a green tube and laughed when she saw Twilight gulp. It took a moment of persuasion to get Twilight up it. (Persuasion Scootaloo's way means hoof-tugging, kicking and name-calling.) But eventually the (slightly beat-up) unicorn and me got up the greenish tube.
And what they saw at the top was a pretty amazing sight.
I look over at the filly beside me.
"Should we go wake her up?" i ask her.
She nods enthusiastically.
So we walk over to the sleeping pegasus on the ground and shake her. She doesn't wake up. (That pegasus is a deep sleeper.) So my horn glows and after a second, she's awake. Her wings were curled around her, but now they're out, in sort of a fighting stance.
"Who are you?" she yells. Then, quieter, "Oh, Twilight, it's you and Scootaloo. Hi."
"Hi Rainbow Dash. Come on, we have to get out of this creepy place!" I shriek, confused that she hasn't already tried to get out.
"Okay Twilight." she yawns again.
She flies, and us with her. (did I need to say that?) But for the life of me, I can't find the greenish tube thing.
"Uh, Twilight, just how are we supposed to get out of here?" asks Rainbow.
I shake my head. "Sorry guys, I don't have any other ideas."
"Well," rainbow began, "We could stay here, you know. There are these nicish humans that like to invent impossible things. They said that they'd try to help me get out of here."
I look at Scootaloo.
"Well, do you think we should?" i asked.
"Since it's either that or being stuck here just aimlessly wandering, I vote yes."
"Cool. So, where are these humans?" i ask Rainbow.
"They're inside that weird house over there." She points to a low, modernish two story house.
"wow, that doesn't look like any kind of Equestrian building." notes Scootaloo.
"No, the buildings here are built really weirdly." says Rainbow.
"We can see that. Can we get on with Operation Get Back To Equestria?"
* * * * * * *
"Howdy Applebloom. Ah just have to finish bucking these last few trees and then we can get goin'."
"Awww, but sis, that's like twenty trees! Ya won't be done in time!" Says the adorable little filly, my sister Applebloom.
"Don't worry, li'l sis, ah'll be done in no time at all."
She pouts a little but sits down to wait.
"Can I help gather the apples?" she asks, her former pout all gone now.
"Ahf course, li'l sis, that'll be a big help." I say, tousling her mane.
In about 5 minutes, we're off to the Sisterhooves Social, a competition where sisters like Applebloom an' I compete against other sisters. Course, cause it's farm stuff and Applebloom and I do that all the time, we usually win.
The first obstacle is the mud jump. Applebloom and I each run as fast as we can, and we both soar right over the mud.
Next up is the grage juice-making contest, where you have to make a bottle of grape juice. Quick as can be, we toss the grapes in one big throw, then jump on the grapes to make a bottle of delicious grape juice.
Then we go to the hay pushing contest. We both kneel down so our noses are on the hay, then run as fast as we can. The finfish line is just ahead, only a tiny ways to go... We make it first. I hoof-five Applebloom, then we jump up to leave.
"Thanks Applejack!" Applebloom says, grinning up at me.
"Ah shucks sis, it wasn't that big of a deal." I say, smiling down at her and mussing her mane.
"So Applejack, are ya gonna go back to the farm now?" she asks.
"Well, li'l sis, ah was gonna go ta Twilight's library and see if she was there." I tell her. "She said she had a book on keeping apples in good conditions over long periods of time, so ah was gonna get it."
"Can you take me to the Cutie Mark Crusaders meeting after that? Please?" she did her mighty adorable face, so ah figured, what the hay. Couldn't hurt.
"Thanks sis!" Applebloom said, hopping around a little.
"You're mighty welcome, sugarcube."
The library isn't really mah favorite place, mostly because Twilight always makes me wash off my hooves before I come in. It's mighty hard to get hay and mud of your hooves every time you want ta see your friend. Also, it seems that if Twilight wants ta see me, she'll come ta the farm like earlier today.
Ah open the door carefully, not wanting ta disturb Twilight. But surprisingly, she's not there.
"Huh Applebloom, ah have no idea where she is. Well, ah'll just get tha book and leave."
Ah see a green and red book lying on the table. It has the title, "Good Conditions: Keeping Apples Fresh". Huh, seems like a pretty cool book.
"Well Applebloom, seems like this is the book. Let's leave now. It's mighty strange, bein' here when Twilight's not 'round."
I say, swinging the book into mah personalized saddlebag. As if on some sorta cue, a purple dragon walks down from upstairs.
"Oh hay Spike."
"Applebloom? Applejack? What are you doing here?" he asks, rubbing his eyes. (He's also carrying a pinkish-purple blankie. Reckon he was sleepin' till we woke 'im up.)
"Um, Spike, ah hate ta tell ya, but this is a public library. We don't need Twilight's permission ta come in. I was just grabbing this book she told me about. By the way, do you know where she is? Scootaloo's with her and they were scheduled ta have a Cutie Mark Crusaders meetin'" I say, making to open the door.
"Um, sorry, nope." he says, yawning and going back to his room.
"well sis," ah say once we're out the door, "ah reckon ah could take ya over ta Rarity an' Sweetie Belle's place."
She nods her head eagerly and ah smile.
* * * * * * * *
Ah knock once on the fancy white door ta Carousel Boutique and a white unicorn pokes her head out.
"Why hello Applejack. I have a problem. Could you please please please help me with it?" she asks pleadingly.
"Well shucks Rarity, ah was just gonna drop Applebloom off, but ah guess ah could spare a moment ta help you."
She hugs me really tightly.
"Thank you so much! Now, there's a strange hole thing that we think is called a portal. There's something on the other side!"
She takes us to her bedroom (impeccably neat of course.) There is indeed a portal. (This happened once on the farm before.)
"All right, ah know what to do. Just stay calm, Rarity use your horn and above all, don't go through!"
"Um," Rarity whispers, "Where are Sweetie belle and Applebloom?"
Filled with dread, ah turn around, reckoning they must be fooling with us, but I see a yellow hoof disappear through the hole.
"Rarity, ya know what we have to do right? Go after them?" ah ask the unicorn, but she's already going through the hole.
I jump after her, hoping the landing won't hurt. It does, and everything goes black.
The only thing Rarity could see was... darkness. Slowly a light flickered on, and she could see she had landed in a large room filled with mechanical parts. Standing next to her was an orange earth pony mare and two fillies.
The memories of what had just happened came flooding back.
"Applejack?" asked one of the fillies, a yellow earth pony.
"Yeah Sugarcube?" replied Applejack, the orange earth pony.
"What just happened?"
Applejack exchanged amused glances with Rarity.
"Well Sugarcube, y'all and Sweetie Belle had the bright idea to jump through that there portal" she gestures up at the ceiling, where a large swirly hole could be seen, " And then we all found ourselves here."
"Um, where is here?" asked Sweetie Belle, a white unicorn like her older sister.
"Well darling, you see, we don't really know," chimed in Rarity.
"Oh..." Sweetie Belle looked disappointed.
"Well Sweetheart, everything's going to be okay. We'll just go back through that portal and end up right back in my room!"
Applejack made a loud grunting sound.
"Uh, Rar'ty ya do know none of us can fly, right?"
The unicorn shook her head in confusion.
"Well yes Applejack, but I simply don't see what that has to do with anything."
Applejack facehoofs brutally.
"Rar'ty...how do you expect fer us ta get up there? We're not pegasi, ya know."
Confusion continues to form on Rarity's face until understanding flickers.
"But Applejack, you're forgetting something...I can just teleport!"
Applejack groans loudly.
"Rarity, unless y'all can teleport four ponies at one tahme, that ain't ginna work. We'll just have ta find an alternate way of gettin' outta here."
"Well Applejack, I suppose that is true." She looks down at the floor, obviously hurt.
"Hey Rarity?" asked Sweetie, running up to her sister, "I think you're an awesome unicorn."
Applejack lowers her head in shame for being rude to her friend.
"Hay Rarity? Ah'm sorry fer bein' rude ta yah."
The unicorn looks shocked.
"Why Applejack, you did nothing of the sort. You were merely pointing out to me the limits of my magical capacity."
Applejack looks up from under her trademark Stetson.
"Ya mean yah're not mad a' me?"
Rarity shakes her head eagerly.
"Applejack, we're best friends! I could never be mad at you for such a trifle!"
Applejack smiles and the whole incident is forgiven.
Then Rarity noticed her sister running over to the center of the room, where a video screen atop a desk stood.
"Sweetie Belle, I don't think that's a good idea!"
But Sweetie Belle ignored her sister and sat on the small chair in front of the desk.
"Whoa, Rarity, there's a whole bunch of buttons here!"
Called the little filly. Then she pressed her hoof to a button and they could all see one wall opening up into a normal suburban backyard.
Sweetie's eyes got huge, before Rarity ran over and grabbed her with Telekinesis.
"Now Sweetie Belle, do you understand that you are not to fool around with dubious things like that?"
The frightened filly nodded.
And with that, she let Sweetie back on the ground, where she shook for a moment.
Then Applejack noticed than her own li'l sis had run off through the empty hole that used to be a wall.
"Applebloom! Ya better git yer hooves back here this instant!"
When Applebloom didn't come running, she took off after her little sister.
Rarity looked over at Sweetie Belle.
"You two just can't resist running off, can you? Ah well, this is more interesting than yesterday..."
Rarity trailed off as she remembered what she had done yesterday: made a gala dress for Carrot Top, a very nice mare with simply no sense of style.
Sweetie Belle stared up at her sister, who had gotten into one of her trances. Then she ran off after her friend.
Rarity recovered from her trance in time to see her sister cantering away. Then she ran off too.
What they saw on the other side was confusing. Their friends Twilight, Rainbow and Scootaloo were talking to strange things that weren't like anything they'd seen before.
They ran over to them.
"Applejack, Rarity! How'd you get here?" asked Rainbow Dash.
"Well darling, could you tell us where we are?" asked an anxious Rarity.
"Well, it's a long story, but this is a place called Earth." said Twilight Sparkle.
"Who are these?" asked Sweetie Belle.
"We're humans," said one of the humans, with red hair. "My name is Phineas, this is my brother Ferb," he points to a green haired human, "and our friend Isabella," a black haired human, "Ferb and I are boys, and Isabella is a girl."
"Okay. Can you tell us a little more about this world of yours?" asked Rarity.
"Well, maybe you should meet Baljeet." said Phineas, looking over at Ferb.
"Who? He's got a weird name," said Sweetie.
"Baljeet. He's one of our other friends."
Twilight looked deep in thought.
"How are we going to get there?" she asked quietly.
"Walk, what else?" said Isabella.
"Well, since it looks like most people don't know about ponies here, we'd attract some stares walking down a public street."
"We could invent something..." he said eagerly.
"Or I could just teleport us." said Twilight gently.
"Oh. Okay." said Phineas a bit sadly.
Twilight encased them in a bubble of purple magic and in a literal flash, they were gone.
* * * * *
Baljeet had been studying the dietary habits of ancient Italians when he heard a loud flash and Phineas and Ferb and Isabella appeared in his room. But something was weird...there were seven polychromatic ponies with them.
"Hey Baljeet. Whatcha doin'?" asked Isabella.
"I was studying the dietary habits of ancient Italians." said Baljeet remorsely.
Right then a large, pale boy busted through the front door.
"Baljeet! You're missing your daily pounding!" yelled the bully.
Then he noticed the ponies.
"You're part of the Mane 6" he yelled, before he realized what he he had said. A deep red color spread to his pale face.
"Buford? You're a brony?" asked Phineas in amazemet.
"Yeah, you got a problem with that?" he growled, grabbing Phineas by his shirt.
"No. That's awesome." he said calmly.
"Good. Now, nerd, why are the Mane 6 or part of them, in your room?"
"I do not know!" shrieked Baljeet.
"Well, nerd, they aren't supposed to be here!" he yelled.
"We need to create a portal to get them back to their world." said Baljeet, sweating.
Phineas looked over at Ferb.
"Ferb, I know what we're going to do today!"
It was a nice summer day, and I bounced down Main Street in search of Dashie.
"Hey, Flitter, have you seen Rainbow Dash?" unfortunately, everypony I met shook their heads.
Oh, not like they have more than one head, cause that would be super-duper silly!
Nopony seems to know where Dashie is. Ooh, I wonder if the Cakes have any cupcakes!
I bounce over to the nice baker's house and bounce through the door. Which for some reason they left open!
"Oh, hello deary." said Mrs. Cake.
"Hi Mrs. Cake! Do you know where Dashie is?"
The cerulean mare shook her head.
"Aww! Darn it! I think I'm gonna go up to my room now!"
Mrs. Cake looks at me, perplexed, as I bounce up the stairs.
In my room I see my saddlebag that has my cutie mark on it! I know, I can go adventuring! I grab my compass, some cupcakes, and balloons.
Then I notice the swirly pink hole!
"It's a portal!" I say out loud! I wonder where it goes. Ooh, I can go adventuring in it! Pinkie Pie, inter-dimension explorer! I'm gonna need more cupcakes.
I put my saddlebag on, go downstairs, get cupcakes, and go back to my room.
"I'm all packed!"
And I bounce backwards into the portal.
* * * * * * * *
I land with an oomph! on the other side. Bouncing up, I notice that there are five humans in the room. Also, Twilight, Rainbow, Scootaloo, Rarity, Applejack, Sweetie Belle, and Applebloom! They're all staring at me.
"Hi Rainbow Dash! I've been looking for you! Hi, everybody else!"
Rainbow Dash groans.
I turn to the humans.
"Hey Phineas, hey Ferb, hey Isabella, hey Baljeet, hey Buford!"
Phineas, he's a red haired boy, says,
"Oh hey Pinkie Pie."
Twilight stares at me.
"You know these people?"
"Yeah Twiley, of course I do. I've been here before!"
Buford, he's large, pale, and a bully, says
"Hey Buford, how've you been?"
I nod knowingly. These people don't know they're part of a TV show. Sad, but I couldn't tell them. Plus, then I'd have to tell my friends about our TV show!
Twilight looks confused.
"Wait Pinkie Pie, what do you mean, you've been here before!?"
"Silly Filly, I meant I've been here before!"
Twilight scratches her head.
Right then, the door to Baljeet's room slams open.
"Phineas and Ferb, what are you doing here?"
Asks an orange haired girl. Ooh, it's Candice.
She looks at me and my friends, clearly confused.
"I know the pink one, but who are you guys?" she asks them.
"Well, my name is Twilight Sparkle, and these are my friends: Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Applejack and their younger sisters."
"Twilight, you're nice and all, but you sure are nerdy." comments Dashie.
Twilight looks hurt.
Candice looks angry.
"Phineas and Ferb! You brought a bunch of ponies here? Ooh, you are SO busted!"
and with that, she runs out the door.
Phineas shakes his head.
"Alright Baljeet, do you have any idea of what we should do?" he asks.
"Um, I do not know. Perhaps we should go back to your backyard so you can build a mechanical device to fix everything?"
Phineas looks surprised.
"Um, okay. Twilight, are you up for teleporting us all, or do we need to walk?"
"I don't know whether I can teleport you all. We might have to walk."
The humans lead the way out.
Once we're out the door, Twilight freaks out in shock at all the tall buildings and the cars.
So does everypony else, for that matter.
Phineas laughs. "Yeah, humans have made some amazing developments."
Twilight stares at him.
"These are far more than 'amazing developments'" she snaps. "What do you call these...things?" she asks, gesturing to a car.
Twilight says, "You humans really are amazing. Perhaps it might be nice for you to talk with Celestia, these technologies and developments would really help Equestria."
Phineas wrinkles his nose, which is really funny because he has a super-duper big nose, "What's Equestria? And who is...Celestia?" he asks confusedly. Oh no no no no no. You don't ask TWILIGHT what Equestria is, or who Princess Celestia is!
Twilight's face gets red.
"WHAT? I knew you had no knowledge of ponies, but how can you not know who Celestia is!? She's the damn Princess of Equestria! And for that matter, for your information, Equestria is, oh, just AN ENTIRE FREAKING WORLD!!" she yells. I notice Phineas getting super-duper scared, like kinda scooching away and shivering. Twi notices, and calms down a bit.
"I'm sorry, it's just hard for me to believe you don't know about Equestria and it's rulers. Here's a brief explanation: Equestria is like your Earth, with a lot of countries. There have always been two rulers, a Night Princess and a Sun Princess. Whenever one dies, another inherits the Gift. Anyway, Princess Celestia is the current Sun ruler and the main Ruler, and her younger sister Princess Luna is the Night ruler."
Everybody but Buford looks interested. Buford looks bored. OH, he's a brony, so he knows all this.
Phineas says, "Thanks Twilight. Later could you tell me more?"
Twilight nods, and we get back to Phineas and Ferb's house without any other problems.
The backyard is really boring. There's just a boring old tree and some grass.
"Hey, Baljeet, what do you think we should do?"
"Well," says Baljeet, "I think that, given the circumstances of our conundrum, we should attempt to build a device to replicate these portals and get the ponies back to Equestria."
Phineas stares at him, and then Baljeet huffs loudly.
"We need to build something to make portals back to Equestria." The word Equestria sounds funny in his Indian accent.
"Ferb, I know what we're going to do today!"
Ferb holds up some tools and buildingy stuff, and Phineas laughs.
"Way ahead of me as usual, bro. Hey, where's Perry?"
he says, looking around for the semi-aquatic monotreme.
Agent P hid behind Phineas and Ferb's tree as the brothers were building something. The tree slid open, revealing a secret tunnel. The monotreme slipped down until he was in his lair. In front of his desk was a video screen with Major Monogram, an old guy with a monobrow.
"Agent P, portals have appeared all over the Tri-State Area, and we believe it's Doofenshmirtz's doing." it went to a clip of a polychromatic pegasus flying through a portal, then back to Monogram. "We're very confused as to what this means, as we thought he had retired the Other-Dimension-Inator. Bottom line is, get in there and stop him!"
Agent P stared over at the wall, which had been ruined by Sweetie Belle.
"Oh, you can just ignore that. We'll have that fixed in a jiffy."
Agent P ran over to the tube, which sucked him up it.
For a moment, he was traveling through space, until he landed on the deck of Doofenshmirtz's apartment.
"Perry the Platypus! How unexpected of you to come! And by unexpected, I mean COMPLETELY EXPECTED!!" he screeched as a metal cage slammed down over the platypus.
"So, Perry, you might be wondering why I am using my Other-Dimension-Inator? Well, I'm not! Surprise! I have instead, built a machine to create portals to Equestria!"
Agent P chattered angrily.
"Why would I want to do this, you ask? Well, when I was just a boy in Gimmelshtump, there was one show I loved: My Little Pony. However, whenever I tried to watch it, my father called me a schnitzel and unmanly. That is why I have built a machine to destroy the world of My Little Pony forever!" he yelled.
Then his robot, Norm rolled in a machine that looked exactly like his Other Dimension Inator.
"Say hello to the...Equestria-Inator!" said Doofenshmirtz, standing near it.
Then he felt a kick on his neck, knocking him down.
"Perry the Platypus! How did you escape?"
The monotreme chattered and pointed toward the cage. Half the bars were sawn off.
Then Doof jumped up, pressing the button on the remote he was holding.
"Haha Perry the Platypus, you are too late!"
A pink laser beam shot out and engulfed the two in a pink bubble.
"Hmmm," said Doof, scratching his chin, "I didn't think the laser would be pink."
Then the bubble exploded.
Norm came out with a basket of muffins and screws.
"Sir? You wanted some refreshments?" He looked around, and seeing his boss not there, he shrugged his metal shoulders and went back inside.

Perry and Doof woke up on a large field with a cliff falling steeply . Doof sat up and scratched his head.
"Um, Perry, do you have any ide- oh, we're in Equestria." then it hit him. "HA! Perry the Platypus, I have defeated you! My evil plan has worked!" the semi aquatic mammal chittered.
Then Doof noticed something coming up the cliff.
"Could it be? It's a pony!"
Indeed, it was a pony. But it was a very important pony. She, was a very important mare. She was, in fact, Princess Celestia. She had come to the field to sit for a while by herself. When she noticed the two humans, at first she mistook them for ponies, and was extremely annoyed that anypony was in her private field. However, as she got closer, she realized they were not ponies.
Her mouth fell open. These were things she had not seen for centuries, not since the second Human War. These were...humans!
She flew up to them, a dark expression on her face.
Perry noticed....something flying up the cliff quickly. When it landed, it glared at them.
"I am Princess Celestia, Monarch of Equestria. What business have you here, human," she looked down at Perry, "and platypus?"
Doofenshmirtz stared at her.
"What are you?" Celestia facehoofed.
"I am an Alicorn, one of the elite ponies who are a mix of pegasus, unicorn and earth pony. All alicorns rule over Equestria."
Doof just kept staring. Celestia sighed deeply.
Then she used her horn to pick them both up in telekinesis.
She teleported them all to the Great Hall of the Royal Castle.
Princess Luna was sitting there, so when her sister and a human suddenly appeared, she shrieked and dropped the thing she was holding.
"AAH! Sister! Give us some warning next time thou decideth to 'drop in!'"
Princess Celestia laughed and pushed Doof into a chair.
"Is that a human?" asked Luna in amazement.
"Yes sister, I found them on my cliff."
Luna tilted her head.
"What doest thou mean, them? We only see one human."
Celestia used her magic to set Perry down on the cold, stone floor.
"Oh sister, that thing ist adorable!"
Celestia smiled, then sat down next to her sister.
"Human, tell us why you have invaded the sanctuary of Equestria." it was not a question, it was an order.
Doof squirmed under their stares.
"Invaded? What do you mean? I just built a machine to destroy Equestria."
Then he covered his mouth, while Perry rolled his eyes.
Luna asked harshly, interrupting her sister, "WHAT doest thou meanst, a machine to destroy the peaceful land of Equestria?"
Doof shrinked in his seat. "Um, he called me a schnitzel!" he yelled randomly.
Celestia wrinkled her nose.
"Who called you a schnitzel? And why would someone call you a delicacy from Germaney?"
Doof explained, "In Drusselstein, being called a schnitzel means being called an unmanly wimp. And it was my father who called me that."
Luna said, "We arest sorry thou's father insulted thou, but that doest not excuse building a machine to destroy Equestria."
Doof just shrank back.
Celestia sighed. "You do not seem like an enemy, so we will simply leave you in the dungeons."
Doof's eyes widen. "What? But, what did I do?"
Celestia rolled her immortal eyes.
"Let us see: you infiltrated Equestria and you threatened to destroy us. Now, what to do with the platypus?"
She asked Luna.
"We should simply let him go, he hast not wronged us."
Celestia waved for the semi-aquatic mammal to leave. He saluted them, and flew out the door on a hang-glider.
Sweetie Belle slipped into the shade behind the oak tree. She was cloaked in a black suit- a perfect disguise, other than the fact that it was high noon. Two fillies soon followed suit, each wearing a similar outfit.
"Sweetie Belle, are y'all sure this is what we should wear?" Applebloom asked, picking at her suit with a yellow hoof. "Ah dunno, it seems kinda... obvious."
Sweetie Belle nodded vigorously. "I'm sure. When Twilight and Spike and Pinkie went on that mysterious mission to the Star Swirl the Bearded archives in the middle of the night to retrieve top-secret information on how to stop the end of the world, this is what they wore. So, since we are on a mission to that weird lair with the old guy at twelve twenty four in the morning to become secret agents like that anthropomorphic platypus and foil a pharmacist's evil scientist's petty, poorly planned, and very unlikely to succeed plan and hopefully get our cutie marks in the process, we need to wear to same thing."
Her friends stared at her, dumbfounded.
Scootaloo was the first to speak. "Um, what?"
Sweetie stared at the tree for a moment. This would be a challenge... a very, very difficult challenge. She tapped he tree trunk. Pressed her ear up against the faded bark. Stuck out her tongue and caught a taste of the wind (seventy two degrees northeast).
She then proceeded to awkwardly conjure up a disco ball and start dancing.
Meanwhile, Applebloom and Scootaloo stared on in utter horror. They vigorously rubbed their eyes. Tried to erase the horrible scene before them.
But, surprisingly, Sweetie Belle getting her groove on was the key to opening a secret door in the tree trunk, and before their eyes, half of the tree fell away.
Sweetie stared at in, grinning smugly. She sauntered up to the tree, flicking her tail in Applebloom and Scootaloo's open jawed faces. If they had been capable of observations at that point, they would have noticed a strange collection of colors on her flank...
"Told you so!" was the last thing she said before disappearing into the hole.
Applebloom shook herself out of her stupor. "Um, what just happened here?"
Scootaloo shook her head. "I have no idea. I think... I think Sweetie Belle is a genius. And a really sore winner. And a really, really bad dancer. That's definitely not her special talent."
Her strawberry maned friend stared at her. "There's a hole in a tree in a random backyard in a world populated by stupid creatures that walk on two hooves an' its somehow activated bah Sweetie Belle's awful sixties dancin', and y'all are worried about cutie marks?"
"Yes. Yes I am." Scootaloo replied, before also disappearing through the hole.
Applebloom shrugged. "Well, if Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo are stupid enough to jump down a hole in a tree without any idea what's down there..."
The yellow filly quickly proceeded to do the same as her friends before her.
"Then ah am too!" echoed up from the bottom of the hole.
After several minutes of free falling through a plastic tube, Sweetie Belle landed in a large space with a small monitor hanging above a desk.
"Ooh..." she said, gazing at it in wonder. "Technology-y."
She heard a loud thud behind her, turning around, a heap of chicken was collapsed behind her.
"Hey Scootaloo!" she exclaimed. "Glad to see you could make it."
The filly stared in awe at Sweetie Belle, her gaze located just near Sweetie's tail. The looks made Sweetie Belle feel very self-conscious, before she realized exactly where Scootaloo was staring.
"Spin! Spin!" she cried.
And Sweetie Belle did just that, gazing upon the wonders of all wonders: a cutie mark, displayed upon her alabaster flank.
"Cutie mark- cutie mark!" was all she could say.
Scootaloo stared. "What do you think it all means?"
It was a symbol of a white pony with a pink and purple mane done up in an afro wearing bell bottoms and a groovy tee shaking her groove thing under the light of a disco ball.
It was then that a third being came crashing down the chute, landing on Scootaloo. The chicken groaned under the toned weight of Applebloom, but the farmfilly was more occupied by staring at Sweetie's rear end.
'Y'all- y'all got you're cutie mark!" she exclaimed.
"Eeyup." said Sweetie, copying Applebloom's southern drawl.
Applebloom scratched her chin. "But what does it mean?" she wondered aloud.
Sweetie Belle took the opportunity to apply her hoof to her face in a gesture of pony contempt. It was... a facehoof. "That I'm an amazing dancer, that's what!" she cried.
Applebloom and Scootaloo shared their own facehoofs.
Suddenly the video monitor sprung to life, and Major Monogram appeared in the screen.
"Aah!" he screamed. "Carl! It's more of those... things! The tiny ones! With the... aaaaaaaaaaaaaah!"
He ran off the screen, and was soon replaced by a gawky teenager, who was stroking his chin in deep thoughts.
"Say... how would you three like to be... secret agents?"
