I was riding my bike back to home, it was a sunny day, maybe even too much, and i got a car, but i felt to ride my bike that day. What a bad and at the same time good decision!
So, i was riding my bike back to home, the street was desert, no one was around, and there was a complete silence, only a tractor was breaking it. Suddenly, i noticed a BedFord 50 meters from me, so i tried to avoid it, but that damn van was to fast.
The last thing i remember about that crash is the noise of metal of my bike being smashed on the vehicle's bumper, then everything went dark.
I woke up, my left arm barely moved, the pain i felt was huge. Then i saw her…
I saw Rainbow Dash flying over me, she stopped and looked at me. I stared at her and she stared at me.
Finally, i spoke: "Help me, please…"
She looked at me one more second, then she spoke too: "What happened? Who or What are you?"
I felt a bit embarrassed, and i barely had the force to numble her something, then i fell unconscious again.
I woke up in an house, surrounded by the six ponies.
Twilight was the first to speak: "Oh my gosh, are you ok?"
"Rainbow Dash founds you near the EverFree Forest, you looked terrible, and you still look terr-… ehm, i mean, you look better now" She continued.
"You can thank me later, stranger!" Dashie said.
I smiled at her, i never thought i could be so near to death, but i never ever thought about being saved by my favorite pony!
"How... how much time i was unconscious?" I asked.
"Almost 2 days now..." Rarity answered.
"For Celestia's love, what happened to you? When i found you, you looked… like dead or something like that!" Dashie asked.
Rainbow's eyes are like hypnotic, i forgot where i was for a moment.
Then my brain started work again.
"Well, i was riding my bike, when a van just crashed on me."
"Bike? Van?" They all asked.
Of course they don't know what a bike or any other human vehicle is.
"They're vehicles." I explained them.
"So, you had an accident basically, right?" Twilight Asked
"Oh my gosh that has to hurt! Nothing that a HUGE party can't fix!" Pinkie exclaimed.
"Calm down Pinkie, you can do your party when he gets better." Twilight suggested.
"He needs to rest for a while- she continued -until we find a solution to heal him."
"Well, ya' still alive, that's a pretty darn good thing!" Applejack said
"By the way, where am i?" I asked.
"In my cottage." Fluttershy quietly answered.
"And who are you?" I asked. I already knew their name, obviously, but i wont scare them by already knowing them.
They then all introduced themselves.
"Now sleep for some hours, we need to make you meet someone special." Twilight said, smiling.
I didn't know if feeling scared or happy, or simply nothing.
The only way to find the answer was listening to Twilight's suggestion, and sleep a couple of hours. So i did.
I don't really know how much i slept, but i felt better, except the arm still hurting.
"Fluttershy?" I called.
She almost immediately came to check if i was in trouble, but the only thing i asked her was a glass of water, and a bandage for the arm.
"Sure!" She said, and she seemed to be happy.
She flied back with the glass of water in one hoof, and the bandage in the other one.
"So… uhm… How do you feel now?" She asked, and this time she seemed a little embarrassed.
"Better than before, thanks, and you?"
"Well… uhm… *numble* fine, thanks."
I think i broke the ice with her, she's starting to be a little less shy in front of me.
"Who am i suppose to meet?" I asked, but the time i spent sleeping gave me the idea that i was going to meet Princess Celestia.
"Princess Celestia herself."
I knew it. And i knew even why.
"I'm going to meet a Princess? Uhm, i think i know why too..." I tried to do the best pokerface i could do.
"Really?" She was a little surprised about that.
"Yeah, i mean, not everyday you find something almost dead near a forest, especially if you don't know who or what that "something" is!"
She quietly laughed.
"You're pretty smart!" She said after a couple of seconds.
Several minutes later, Twilight came to visit us. She seemed pretty upset, her mane was a total mess, like if she didn't slept for the whole night. She had huge bags under her eyes, and i think she wasn't in the mood for this problem, or talking to the Princess or anything else that need the brain to be used.
"Twilight, are you ok? I asked.
"Yeah, i'm fine, i think…" She said.
"Oh gosh, you're mane is a complete mess!" Fluttershy exclaimed. Yup, exclaimed, in Fluttershy's style…
And i joked about it: "Eheh, don't go visit Rarity with that mane, else she will get crazy about it!"
They both stared at me. They looked a little angry, but then they just laughed at that joke.
"Ahahah, you're right!" Twilight said, between laughs.
Fluttershy smiled. Good thing they didn't noticed i just did a comment on Rarity, which should still be a "stranger" to me, even i already know her.
"As i can see, you fell better, right?" She asked.
"Yes, i fell better than before, i really needed that nap!"
"So you're ready to meet that "special" person?" Twilight asked
"Yes i am, just let me put a bandage on my arm…"
And so i did.
"Well, time to go! The wagon is waiting us outside."
I got up the bed, and we walked outside, It was a nice, warm spring day.
"Goodbye Fluttershy, thanks for the help!"
She just numbled for a second until she said: "Goodbye!"
We got to the wagon, which took us to Canterlot.
Canterlot is a really big city, full of ponies, life, so beautiful… Doing a comparison between Italian cities, Canterlot is like Rome and Ponyville is like Lucca.
Look it at the screen is not the same effect as WALK in it, with all the lights, the sounds, the various smells, the colors that you FEEL, not that you watch.
Anyway, we walked to Celestia's castle, where she met us at the main gate.
"Twilight Sparkle, my pupil." The Princess said.
"Good evening, my Princess" Twilight said, while bowing.
"I see you have a "guest" today."
"Yes… This is why i wanted to meet you, Princess. But you doesn't seem astonished, how?"
"I just simply had this problem more than once, my dear."
"Woha, hold on a sec, you already met humans?" I asked, a bit shocked.
"Yes i did." The Princess seemed a little annoyed by my voice's tone…
"I didn't knew it, my Princess…- Twilight said - And how did you solved it?"
"It's better for both of us if you don't know anything about this."
Now i was scared. What happened to that person? Is he/she still alive? Where is he/she? Is this going to happen to me too? My mind was full of thoughts!
"Well, since it's me that you're talking about, can i know what happened?" I finally asked.
"No, thrust me, it's better if you don't know. You only had to know that i handled it as best as possible. Even if i always think i chosen the wrong way."
After that sentence, i didn't felt so good as i was before…
"Don't worry, i didn't hurt him, and nopony is going to do the same to you."
I wasn't sure if feeling relaxed or just even more nervous. Then the silence started to cover us.
"Calm down, my friend - Twilight finally spoke to break that torture - We will find a solution, ok?"
Did she just called me "friend"? Did she meant to call me like so, or it's just a strange way to call me? I had too much questions in my mind in that moment.
Another embarrassing and stressing minute of silence…
"Well, shall we go?" Twilight asked me.
"I think it's ok, if the Princess doesn't have anything else to say to us" I replied.
"No, you can go now, and get well soon!" Celestia said.
On the way back home, i was still thinking about what they all said. "Calm down, my friend…" "You only had to know that i handled it as best as possible…" "…I always think i chosen the wrong way…"
What do they meant? What is going to happen? Is everything going to end in the way I think it will end? Or it will end in a seriously bad way? What about me? What about my world? What about THIS world? Is this my end? Or a fresh new start?
We finally got to Ponyville, it was the almost the sunset. So i decided to talk to Rainbow Dash.
"Where can i find Rainbow Dash at this time, Twilight?"
"Uhm… today she said she was going to AppleJack's farm for some sort of work… But i don't know anything else about it, sorry"
She smiled at me. She seemed to pokerfaceing, according to me…
"Oh, ok. I'll go to AppleJack then. Where does Applejack lives?"
"Just go down that street, when you get to the woods, a path should start, just follow it. Oh, and don't come back too late, else Fluttershy will worry!"
"You can count on that!"
So i just walked until i reached the Sweet Apple Acres. It was quiet, even too much quiet. Maybe because it was the sunset, and no one was out. But still a little scary, due to not a single light being on.
I walked to the barn, and opened the door…
I couldn't believe it! They made me a party! I didn't expected something like that...
I was speechless.
They were all there, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, the only one missing was Twilight.
"You made me a party!"
A few minutes later, Twilight entered from the main door.
"You made me, a perfect stranger, a party?"
"Yes, as a warm welcome party! Do you like it, eh? Doyoulikeit? Becauseiworkedalltheafternoontofindallthe-" Pinkie Pie said, or tried to! Aha!
"Calm down, sugar cube!- Applejack said - Ya' ain't wanna scare our guest, right?"
"I'm not scared, i'm very happy!"
Everyone was happy, that was my first party that i really enjoyed!
We had fun, a lot of fun. And i was anyway a little confused about this party, but still, i was really happy about it!
It was around midnight, i think, when almost everyone left.
There's was only AJ and Dashie, cleaning up the mess we did, and I was only there for cheer 'em up.
"That's incredible, you all organized a party for me, a perfect stranger!"
"Pinkie's idea, that everyone of us followed. We always welcome people. Even if they aren't like us, you know, there's no races, everyone is a living creature that needs help if it needs help. No matter how weird it can look. And you don't look weird." Dashie said.
I felt, like, i don't know, i felt like good. I felt like i was in heaven. I felt like i just smoke the best weed ever.
"Can i hug you, Dashie?"
"Uhm… ok? If you really need to..."
I hugged her as she was my best friend. No, not my best friend, my sister! She was like a sister for me! She saved me, she was in a party with me, we had fun together! I surely want to hang out with her!
I didn't slept that night, i was too excited about the party i just had. It been awesome. Ponies that organize me, a stranger, and not even of their race, a party as a warm welcome! That was incredible. In our world, there isn't such an amazing love to all the living creatures. It's been almost 50 years from Martin Luther King protest, but nothing much changed at all in the poor countries, there's still unhappy people who dies, yeah, DIES for idiot "differences", like religion, politic, and race ones. But here, in Equestria, there's nothing that reminds me of my world, the world meant to house me, but i think it ISN'T meant to house me, since Equestria is a way better place, and it will always be like so.
That night i even forgot about my arm.
I was lost in another world, and i was happy. Somehow…
I was thinking, what's going on in my world? Is everything fine? What did the Princess meant before? Did she really managed with other humans before, or she was just being "Trollestia"?
I asked myself: "So, i'm lost in another dimension, with my favorite ponies from my favorite show, they don't care about my race or how do i look. What can possibly even go wrong? I'm very happy!"
"Maybe i'm in coma or dead, and this is how my paradise looks like. If so, why are they trying to send me back to home?"
"Am i gone crazy?"
"Is this even real or it's just my mind tricking me out?"
I think i spoke too loud, because Fluttershy was at the door, looking at me.
"Everything ok?" She asked, with a very quiet voice, as always.
"Yes Fluttershy. Thanks for the hospitality!"
"I brought a cup of tea…"
"Well, thanks!" And i drunk it.
I managed to sleep, finally.
I really liked Fluttershy's cottage, it's a good place, quiet, nice, and it has a garden! I love to roll myself on the grass like a dog, but the arm was stopping me to do like so. Dammit…
I finally got up around 6 AM, i slept only 4 hours, but that was enough, i'm used to not sleeping so much.
Corn Flakes. Corn Flakes and milk, my usual breakfast. I was alone too. So i felt like i was at my home, i didn't even noticed Angel's bed. So i thought is was all a dream. An awesome, painful, and realistic dream. But it wasn't.
Fluttershy sneaked to me, and when she greeted me, i almost had an heart attack.
She screamed, i screamed, for almost one minute. When i realized that everything was ok, i stopped screaming like a young girl, and Fluttershy too.
"I'm sorry if i scared you…" She apologized
"Don't worry, it's ok, i was just a bit relaxed… I didn't thought i was still in your house…"
"So… uhm… What are you going to do while waiting to Twilight to find a solution?"
"I don't know, but since my arm it's still hurting, i think i will walk around the city until i'll be useful to the community."
"Well, good luck!"
I finished to eat my breakfast, and i went outside.
It was a little cloudy today, but since i know what is the pegasus' work, i think it would be easier to find Dashie in the clouds… somewhere and somehow…
So i started looking for her, searching cloud by cloud. It's been funny for about twenty seconds, then i gave up and i just walked around the town. Yeah, i give up almost immediately if a thing doesn't end as i want in less than ten second flats.
My gosh, how can someone listen to that… noise?
And mainly, where did it come from? How can someone wake up at around 6:10 AM with that noise?
The answer was: a DJ. (Or a freak)
A DJ who wakes up everyone in the town with his, or her, dub-step. But who's so crazy to do like so? Vinyl Scratch, obviously…
I ran to that "noise" source, and heavily knocked at the door.
The DJ opened the door, and then she screamed away. I don't know what in world just happened, she just ran into the house, screaming.
I stand at the door like an imbecile for the next 30 second, until she came back with a knife, yelling at me to go away, calling me "horrible monster" and stuff like that.
I tried to run away, but i fell near the door, and i beat my head into a rock, and i fell unconscious one more time.
I woke up three minutes later, as they said. Vinyl was staring at me, almost crying.
I got myself up. Trying to don't make any more trouble than before.
"Oh my gosh i'm so sorry!" The DJ in tears said.
"Really, i didn't know you were harmless, and, you know, some strange… uhm… human?"
"Yes human…" Twilight said
"Anyway, you know, someone yelling at me to stop playing the music and finding out that it wasn't a pony, but a "human" scared me a lot. I didn't meant to, really…"
"It's ok, just… don't play Dub-Step at 6 AM waking everyone up, or scaring people who's in the road…"
"I'm sorry, that's my dishwasher…."
I could see a tear falling down her glasses. I was making this situation even worst...
"Hey, hey, calm down, there's no need to cry!" I put'd my hands on the DJ's shoulders.
And then she cried. Why no one listen to me when i give them suggestions? It always happened like so! Why!?
"Come on now, stop crying, i'm fine, see?" I lied, my head hurt a lot after that, but i wont make her cry any longer.
I could see her glasses got a little cloudy, she was still crying…
"Look, i'm fine, just... don't worry, let's forget about this, ok? Let's go back to what we were doing before, ok?"
She seemed to calming a little down now
"Okay… *sniff*" She finally said.
She hugged me, i felt embarrassed, but the best thing to do was to hug her back, so she could finally calm down.
"You feel better now that you vented?" I asked her.
"Yes… i think yes *sniff*"
"Good! Now, let's forget about this silly event, ok?"
I smiled at her. She smiled back. I didn't thought that she could smile me back after what happened, and after knowing who i am.
Then her glasses fell of her face, showing her dark magenta eyes.
I picked them up.
"Hold on a sec, i'll clear them for you."
I used my shirt to clear the glasses from the tears and humidity, and i gave them back.
"Well, nice to meet you, even if in this strange way! Eheh!"
"I think i better go now, see you later, uhm… what's your name?" I knew her name, but as i said before, i wont scare anyone saying their name before they tell me.
"Vinyl Scratch, also know as DJ-Pon3. But you can call me just Vinyl" She smiled.
"Well, i'm…" I got interrupted by Twilight asking me to follow her.
"Uhm, i think i have to go now, bye!"
We walked to Twi's house. I was happy. Kinda….
"I need you for a little thing at home, ok?" She said.
"I guess it's ok, as soon as i don't have to use this arm…"
"You don't have to move a single muscle."
OK, now i was scared, because this time i did not know what was going on or what was going to happen. Try to think about it, someone force you to follow him/her, and you don't know what is gonna happen. The feeling you feel? It is anxiety. Plus, the fact that you're in another world or probably dead or in coma doesn't make it simpler.
"So, what's next then?"
We got into Twilight's house-library.
She slammed the door using her magic horn.
"So, what do you want to talk about?" I asked, nervously.
"We all wrote down some question for you, since we all want to know a little more about you!"
"Ok, let's get started!" I was so nervous that my hands were shaking a bit…
"First off, calm down, i see that you're shaking…"
I settled down.
"Ok, now, It's impossible that you come from our world, so i have to ask you what's the name of your world."
"We call it Earth."
"Next question: Are you really harmless? I defended you from that DJ, but if i don't have a reason to do it again, you will be at your own."
"Yes i'm harmless, i don't think i could hurt someone. Still, if someone makes me angry, i can freak out a bit, but i calm down almost immediately and it's hard to make me angry"
"This is a question from Pinkie Pie: "Do you have parties in your world? Do you have fun? Do you have muffins?" Wait what?"
"Yes, not so much and yes. Simple!"
"Rainbow Dash asked you: "Can you fly?" Obviously you can't, right?"
"No, i can't… But i'd like to!"
"Oh, ok… This is one of my personal questions: Can you do magic tricks? Like us unicorns?"
"Oh…" her ears dropped a bit
"That doesn't mean i don't want to learn something else about you and your magic!"
She grinned a bit.
"Good!" She said, but then he had a little angry expression on her face, and her next question scared me.
"Now, when you woke up, yesterday, how did you know that Rarity doesn't like messed up manes?"
I was fucked up now.
Telling or not telling the truth? That was the problem!
To have a good relation with those ponies, i MUST be honest. They were honest to me, so i were honest with them too. At least, if you WONT hurt them and making things worst, so i've been honest, as honest as possible.
"Well, it's difficult to explain…"
"Tell me the truth!" She looked angry, and i was scared, REALLY scared!
"Ok, ok! So, i already knew all of your names, because…"
I was scared, i didn't felt good, but i must tell the truth.
"All of you are characters from a TV cartoon."
She stared at me, confused, angry, and tired.
"All of you are from a cartoon called "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic", and i watch that show, so i already know all of you and your personalities."
She stared at me one more second, watching me as someone who's trying to troll.
She then turned around, looking at the books in the shelfs.
Now i was really fucked up. I thought i was going to be hanged for saying that. Good thing she understood me.
"Ok, i guess it's… "fine" if you think we're from a cartoon. But don't tell anypony about this, ok?"
"Ok, you have my word!"
"Now go outside and have some fun, ok? I have to write a letter to the Princess."
"Well, see you later, Twilight!"
She didn't respond. She just yelled at Spike to take paper and a pen.
I told the truth, but i think it was better to say a lie, but at this point, i couldn't come back anymore.
"If Twilight doesn't tell anyone about this, and same thing for me, i think it will all go well, isn't it?" I though, various times.
That day i decided to just walk around trying to don't meet anyone. And it worked.
At the end of the day, i just came back to Fluttershy's home, had dinner, and then i got to bed. I don't remember if i slept or not, though.
Dammit. Just dammit.
My arm was still hurting, and sleeping didn't make it feel better.
I didn't want to scare Fluttershy, so i just woke up and pretend of nothing.
I walked to the garden, and looked at the sky. Clouds, clouds everywhere. it was going to rain, i think. But i didn't give a single fuck about it and i just walked around, like always.
"LOOK OUT BELOVE!!!"
I almost had an heart attack. Rainbow Dash was falling from the sky at incredible speed.
"I'LL CATCH YOU!" I yelled. What i had in my mind? Duh...
I thought i was going to made it, but she just stopped 1 meter above the ground, laughing, and i stepped into a root, falling down like a tree.
We both laughed, that situation was just ridicule! Good thing i didn't landed on my arm...
"So, i heard you were looking for me since you're here, why?" She said with a big happy grin in her face
"Well, i just wanted to thank you for saving me, but not by just saying "Thanks" and stuff like that. I can't describe how much thankful i am to you!"
Her grin became bigger and happier.
"I think we can meet some times! But maybe not today, i got work to do, you know, we decided that it's going to rain today, sooooo…"
"Ok, no worries!"
"Good to see that you understand! Now i have to go, bye!" And she flew away.
I ran to Fluttershy's cottage, and it started raining when i was at about 50 meters to the door. Dammit!
Suddenly, a hole of light opened in the sky, i looked up.
"You'd better hurry up! Else you will get wet! AHHAHAAHAH!!!" it was Rainbow Dash. Another thing was added to the list of the things i would be thankful when i had the occasion.
I ran as fast as possible to what i should now start call "home". But i was wet anyway. And i got the fever. Dammit!
But the worst thing is that my shirt and pants were completely wet! And i had to dry them somehow, but i don't want to be NAKED in front of Fluttershy! THE SHAME! Dammit!
So i thought to just stand in front of the fireplace. I then started to randomly sneeze. Can something go even worst? Yes.
The shirt and pants got a little tight after drying them, and so they were going to literally rip off on me! I can't believe how much i was angry that moment.
I started to yell around the house, asking why this happened to me, why i'm lost here and still happy, and generally, WHY.
Fluttershy ran down the stairs, trying to calm me down, but i just told her to go back to her bedroom until i calmed down. After 2 minutes of random and useless yelling, Twilight literally broke in and grabbed me with a magical spell.
"WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" She screamed.
I felt idiot. REALLY idiot.
"I'm just raging because my shirt and pants aren't fitting me anymore…"
She looked at me like if she was looking an idiot. That is me. She even facehoofed. I wanted to be as smaller as possible at that moment.
"Only that? You're screaming like an idiot just because your stuff doesn't fit anymore?"
"Oh, for Celestia sakes! Just calm down! Look, this afternoon i'll get Rarity here to make you some clothes, ok?"
"You know she's good at making dresses and clothes, she will help you! But don't rage like this again, ok? I heard you from 300 feet from here!"
"I… i will not rage like this anymore, ok?"
God dammit why the hell i every time make every situation as worst as possible? Uhm… I wonder how a "idiot" Cutie Mark would look like!
After Twilight left, i sat down for a moment. Then i realized that Fluttershy was still in her bedroom, probably scared as hell.
I ran upstairs, almost falling down, and got to the bedroom.
She was sitting on the bed, hiding herself behind her tail. So cute!
I didn't even think to get completely inside the room, so i just stepped at the door, staring at her.
"I'm sorry if i scared you, i didn't meant to…"
She said something, probably. I don't even know. I don't even remember.
She finally found the force to tell me: "It's ok… but i have to ask you to don't do like so again…"
"I promise i will not rage like that again."
She didn't respond.
"So, uhm… what do you usually do when it's a rainy day?"
After about two minutes of silence, she said: "Nothing much, i draw, or write."
Write. That gave me the idea to write my whole adventure i had here, starting by taking notes, and then write them down when it was all finished. Proving everyone that this isn't a dream.
So i asked Fluttershy for a pen and a notebook, and i started writing this stuff.
I stopped writing that it was almost 1 PM, and i was hungry.
We ate in the complete silence, i was smiling, and Fluttershy was being shy, she didn't even looked at my eyes for a moment, God i thought she understood! But it seems she didn't.
Later in the afternoon Rarity would came here, so i waited at the window, looking outside. Still raining, but not as hard as before.
I started to relax, and my mind slowly filled up with thought.
"How did i got here? That crash was so hard to launch me on this dimension?"
"How this entire adventure will end?"
"What is going to happen next?"
"Am i dead? Or in coma?"
"What's going on in my world?"
"Will i get back to my home, or i will live here for ever?"
"What the fuck is going on?"
"It's better if you don't write all those cussings…"
"They gave the people who read this the idea of how i felt, my dear."
"Well, you're the writer here!"
"Thanks, but now i should go back writing..."
"Wont you even kiss me?"
Rarity got there at 3 PM.
She said she was late, but no one gave her a precise time… I think she was just stressed.
"Hello Rarity." I greeted.
"Uhm, i think this will be a little harder than usual."
She then looked and trotted around me for several seconds, until she said: "Ok, i think i got it. Now, what are you EXACTLY looking for?" She spelled "exactly" more decided.
"Uhm… like those clothes i got, but i'd like a rainbow colored shirt!" You probably know why...
She stared at me, confused...
"Rainbow colored shirt, with that mane?"
"Whatever. Well, if you wish a shirt like that, i'll make you one. But i first need to take some measurements!" And she took out of one of her bag a tape and started taking measurements.
"It's better if i build a mockup like you, it will be easier."
"Uhm… ok, i guess…?"
"Ok, i'll take some photos as a base!"
Some? She taken enough pictures to make a video at 30 FPS! With the flash. So i was temporally blind.
"Now i'll go to my store making you those clothes, ok?"
She took an umbrella and left the house.
This is the fastest thing that ever happened to me. How much time did she get to do what she did? Around 2 minutes? And i was still blind.
"Are you ok? It seems that you're going to…." Fluttershy said, without ending it.
I fell down. On my left arm. Hurting it even more. I knew that day was the worst day ever.
Nothing much happened after, anyway.
The next day i woke up. I beat the head on a shelf, i don't know how.
I didn't even want to eat breakfast, i just sat in front of the window, looking outside, waiting for Rarity to give me the new clothes. It was cloudy and it was still raining a little.
Finally, Rarity arrived with the new clothes. They were of the exact size, and even as i asked them! I thought she would add some "Rarity Style" but she didn't!
But i was still stuck at home, with a little of fever, but writing almost made the whole day pass without boring me.
It's been a month since i'm lost here. Twilight is still searching for a magical spell to send me back to home, Flutershy started to talk to me often, my arm doesn't hurt anymore, and most important thing is that i started to hang out with Dash.
I like to walk around with her, we often go to the park, and i watch her performing some cool air tricks.
She say she want to train for an epic sonic rainboom, so she will be accepted into the Wonderbolts. Every time she say like so, i always respond with a augury of good luck!
I remember that afternoon, it was July the 7th. A warm day, for being summer. Threes were colorful, with flowers, the grass was green, and somehow that reminded me of a Pink Floyd's song. It was a beautiful day, that got 20% cooler when Rainbow performed one of her best tricks: a slalom through the whole town and a rainbow. It was awesome. Describing it with word is almost impossible. Awesome doesn't describe it very well, but it's the nearest word.
When she landed in front of me, with an epic stance of success, i was just staring at her, with my mouth open.
"Pretty cool, uh?" She said
"I don't know how to describe it… "Awesome" goes near, but it's not the right word… "
"Eheh, you should see the look on your face! It's priceless!" And she laughed.
"Yeah, aha, i wonder how my face looks like too!"
"Well, i'm a little hungry. Wanna come with me at the Sugar Cube Corner?"
"I know you will beat me! But i'll race with you anyway!"
10 seconds later she was already at the shop, and i was at 30 feet from the start. Well, my top speed is around 5 MPH, Dash's one is around 3.800 MPH, so i think she will always win any race. With a human!
She came back, and we met at half a way.
"Too slow! AHAHAHAHAHHA!!!"
"Well, you go at around 4.000 MPH so…"
"I know, right? So, when we…" She stopped, looking terrified.
"When we what?"
"L-l-l-look over there!" She pointed to a pony buying some stuff...
"It's a dark blue alicorn, so?"
"Sh-sh-she's NIGHTMARE MOON!!!"
"And so? She's just buying something at that stall… I don't see anything wrong with it!"
She just hided behind a bush.
"Look, i'll show you that she's harmless, ok?"
So i walked to Princess Luna, i don't know why Rainbow was so scared and why she called her "Nightmare Moon" even if she's no longer that alicorn…
"Hello miss Luna!" I greeted
"HELLO TO YOU, STRANGER!!!!" She screamed.
My ears just got raped…
"M-m-my ears…" i said
"I'm sorry, i'm used to talk in Royals tone… Aren't you the "human" that my sister talk about?"
"Yes it's me."
"Well, good to see that you're fine. But now i have to go. SEE YOU LATER, STRANGER. AND THANKS FOR THE APPLES, SALESMAN!!!!!"
And she flew away. God dammit my ears…
I walked back to Rainbow Dash, and this time, she was the one with the mouth open!
"See? Except the voice's tone, she's like any other pony here in Equestria. No need to be afraid of her!"
"That was AWESOME! You just walked to her, and greeted her without even being scared!"
"I told you she was harmless. Nightmare Moon is only an old story now…"
"Well, guess you're right…"
"So, are we gonna go to Sugar Cube Corner or you just want to stand here staring at nothing?"
"No, i'm coming…"
We got at Mr and Mrs Cakes shop, and Pinkie Pie was there welcoming us.
"Hi! What can i do for you?!" She said, bouncing around, like always
"Well, we came here to eat something sweet and…" Pinkie didn't let Rainbow finish her sentence
"What about CUPCAKES!?" She said.
I froze. Terrified. My brain just crashed like a Windows Vista while processing the word "cupcakes"...
"C…c…cupcakes?" I barely said
"Yes! Rainbow colored cupcakes, just for you two!" She said, smiling.
Dash looked at me: "Something wrong?"
"Yes, you don't look so good…"
I then rebooted my brain, realizing that Rainbow was next to me and not in the cupcakes.
"Yes, i'm ok."
"Good!" Rainbow said.
"So, want some cupcakes?" Pinkie asked.
"Ok, i'll take one, and you Dash?"
We ate the cupcakes at the park. She then take off and get to his home, saying that she was late for her favorite show. That reminds me of an episode of "The Cleveland Show"…
So i just walked around. Still looking for something to do.
"What can i do? I don't want to be an obstacle to ponies, i have to help them back… somehow…" I said, probably out loud because AppleJack trotted to me.
"Ya could help us at Sweet Apple Acres! We always need some help for some works, and Ah ain't gonna do it all alone, or let mah brother do that alone too!"
I nodded in agreement.
We got at the farm. Big Mac greeted me, he knows me, almost everyone in Ponyville know me now. I wasn't a stranger anymore!
"So, what do i have to do?" I asked
"Well, Ah noticed that some apples don't want to fall from trees when i buck them, but you're taller than me, so Ah think that ya could get on the tree and take off that apples! Big Mac will help ya."
"Eeyup" Big Machintosh said
"Ok, where do i start?"
"East field, over there." And she pointed me the HUGE field of apple's trees. At least i didn't had to do it all alone…
So i started to climb on the trees, shaking the leaves, picking up the apples. Good thing it wasn't that hard. Else i could die! I'm not an athletic guy, i barely do something, but i wanted to help, and that gave me the force to continue doing it.
Being different doesn't mean i can't help!
We managed to finish this work at the sunset.
"So, we finished?" I asked
"Eeyup" Big Mac answered
"Good. But i need something to drink, my throat is dry…"
"Sure, follo' me to the house."
We got at the house, there was granny Smith, sleeping.
"Here's a glass of water." He said, quietly
"Thanks" I said.
"And here's some bits for the help, Ah really appreciate it! And Mah sis' too."
"Well, thanks again!"
I drunk it, took the bits, greeted him, and left the farm to go to Fluttershy's home.
I got there at around 7 PM, 'Shy was putting the chickens into the chicken's coop.
"Hi…" She said, i could barely hear that.
I got indoor, she was still managing with the chickens.
After dinner, i got to bed. And slept.
I woke up, screaming. I wasn't at Fluttershy's home. I was in an hospital. My arm was fine, it has only some bandages.
"Yo what the fuck is wrong with ya nigga?" A man with a deep voice said next to me.
"I was sleepin', nigga, and ya woke me up!" He was getting REALLY angry
"I didn't meant to, sorry. What time it is?"
"Hey, the fuck ya think i am? A calendar?"
I didn't said nothing…
"July the 8th, 2012" He finally answered
I froze. I stayed in coma for about one month… It was all a dream…
I just sat on the bed, and cried.
"Hey man, calm down, no need to cry, what's wrong?" The man with the deep voice said, this time was a little surprised by my reaction and even a bit sad.
"I just… i just don't know what happened… i was in another dimension… and then i woke up here…"
"You were in coma, now that it think about it…"
I sighed, and then went back to cry. That man was still trying to calm me down, usually saying "No homo, dude, but everything's fine now"
MEANWHILE, IN EQUESTRIA…
Fluttershy was running from side to side of the home, searching for me.
"Oh my gosh where did he go?" She cried
Twilight came into the cottage, and saw Flutteshy running around and crying.
"Fluttershy, what happened?" She asked
"I can't find him, WHERE DID HE GO!?" She screamed.
"Hold on, Fluttershy, screaming?"
"Yeah, it sounds strange, but this is how it went."
"I know that when she rages she screams, but…"
"I think she's just attached with me!"
"Ok Fluttershy, calm down. I'll take here our friends and we will start the research, ok?"
She just squeaked.
It was the afternoon, when the mane six where all reunited at Fluttershy's house.
"Allright girls, the human is missing, and nopony's know where did he go, and why he left."
Applejack jumped, Pinkie STOPPED jumping around, Rarity said her "drama" sentence, Rainbow Dash froze.
"WHAT!?" Said the cyan pegasus.
"Yes, he somehow disappeared. We need to find him. He can get hurt, again."
There was a moment of silence, broke by Fluttershy's sighs.
"Rainbow Dash, you search for him by flying over the place, in a mile radius."
"Got it!" She said.
"Applejack, you go with Pinkie in the Everfree Forest."
"Uhm… Ah guess it's ok…" AJ said.
"Rarity, you will help me looking for clues in the house."
"Ok, let's get started!"
Everyone started their own jobs.
MEANWHILE, ON THE EARTH…
"Good, it seems that you woke up from your coma pretty soon and well!"
"Oh, and don't mind about the "dreams" you could had during the period, they're just dreams! Nothing more."
"I suggest you another week of resting, and then you can go back to work! Oh, and don't do any strange movement with your arm! It should still hurt!"
And i left the hospital.
I didn't gave a single FUCK about what that doctor said. It was just a dream. The adventures i lived were just dreams.
Strangely, there was my car in one of the parking lot, with a piece of paper attached.
I hope everything's fine now! I heard that you woke up from your coma and so i thought about taking your car here so you can easily come back home!
PS: The car's tank is full, and no, Season Three of My Little Pony isn't on air yet."
Mark is one of my best friend, Actually, he's my ONLY friend. He lived with me at my house. He's both a smartass and a retard. he's AWESOME! And he's a brony too.
I drove. Not to reach my home, but to reach the sea. And i saw his motorbike at the end of the road.
I got out of the car, and walked to him.
"HEY DUDE!" He said, smiling
"Hey man, wazzap?"
"Bad. Really bad." I sadly replied.
"I think a brohoof will fix it!"
We brohoofed and we continued talking.
"What's so bad, anyway?"
I gulped. I was nervous. He's my best friend, and i anyway need to tell him about my "dreams".
I narrated him my whole "life" in Ponyville.
"Whoa" He said, after i finished my story.
"Yeah, that's weird, right?"
"No it isn't!"
"I had a friend before, he was a brony too, and he had a car crash, fall in coma, and when he woke up, he told me a story similar to yours. He then died because he had a hearth attack… But i think it's normal to dream stuff like that."
"Oh… And what are you doing here at the beach?"
"I know that you like to sit here and stare at ocean when you something bad happened to you. And the coma is a bad thing, i think!"
"Yeah, you're right…"
"Hey dude, why that sad face?"
"Because i don't think it was a dream… i think it was real…"
"AHAHA, as soon as Twilight doesn't pop up and take you with her to Ponyville, i'm not gonna believe that! No offense…"
"No offense taken, don't worry…"
After a few minutes of silence, he said: "Well, since those roads here are abandoned, wanna race to home?"
"I bet my "Dashie" will beat your Yamaha!"
We ran to our vehicles and started the race. My car sure is fast as Rainbow Dash (metaphorically), but his motorbike can go in small rooms.
The roads we used for our races are abandoned from about 30 years now, same thing with the buildings all over the place. It's like a Fallout map! Without cops or any other person!
There are various items scattered around the place, and some 80s cars too. If a piece of rust that reminds of a Chevy Impala can be called "car"… But still, it's an awesome place.
I drove as fast as possible, i drove as Rainbow Dash flies, trying to don't crash into anything… See? I don't care of what medics says to me. And that's a good thing.
His bike is a Yamaha, that's all i know, a Yamaha with a 550cc 2 piston engine. My car is a Ford Focus that i modified last year. It's cyan, it has a 2.000cc V6 engine 16 Valves. I don't refer at it as a car or "Focus", i call her "Dashie".
Anyway, back to the race, i was in the lead, and i actually won.
He got here after a minute.
"BWHAHAHAHAHHAH!!!! I lost myself here. AGAIN!"
"You will learn the road, one day. And the shortcuts too!"
And we laughed. We always laugh about stupid things!
"Well, at least we got at home!"
"Anything interesting in TV this evening?"
"Well, your favorite episode of MLP: "Sonic Rainboom", season 1 episode…. episode…."
"…episode 16… where Rainbow Dash does a sonic rainboom…"
I froze for a second, with a sad expression on my face.
"Hey dude, it was a DREAM. A dream, that's all. I know that you "love" Dash, but it was just a dream. Maybe it's better if we don't watch TV tonight."
We then watched TV until 2 AM. And we watched My Little Pony. Then i cried.
A week as passed. Everypony gave up.
Fluttershy didn't exit her home since i left, Rainbow Dash was really sad about my departure, Twilight too. Pinkie didn't thrown a single party during that week, AppleJack was a bit sad too, but not so much, probably because we don't know each other so much. Rarity was looking at the mockup she made for me when she was walking in front of it.
"I can't believe it…" Twilight said
"Yeah, i mean, i saw him not so much times, but it seemed to be nice, and friendly with you! I just don't know why he left like so…" Spike replied
"I don't think he left because he wanted too. Something must have happened in his world, that caused him to go back. Somehow."
"I dunno Twilight… maybe you're right, or maybe not. What did the princess said about this?"
"She said that she's a bit sad because she wanted to know about humans a bit more, but the only chance she had just disappeared. Now she's working on some spells to try to get him back. Actually, why is she trying to get him back?"
"You're asking it to the wrong dragon. Anyway, why don't you join her in the studying?"
"I don't know…"
"Twilight, two heads are better than just one."
"You know what? Take note!"
"Dear Princess Celestia,
Here at Ponyville are all sad about the departure of our friend.
But since i know that you're working on a spell to get him back here, i thought to join you and help you!
As my assistant Spike said: "Two heads are better than just one!" and following his suggestion is not a bad idea, i think.
Tell me if you are interested,
"…Twilight…. Sparkle… Got it!"
"Ok, now just send it and let's wait for her respond…"
The dragon took a deep breathe and blow away the letter.
MEANWHILE, AT PINKIE'S ROOM…
"Why did he left? I thought he was going to tell us if he left! So i could make him a "Goodbye" party!" Pinkie complained
"Pinkie, not always you can find your answer." Mrs Cake said
"Maybe there's no answer to why he left. Maybe he didn't want to! He was your friend, right?"
"Yes he was!"
"He would tell everyone when he's going to left!"
"Yes, i don't think he left because he wanted too! Maybe something happened…"
"Well, tell Twilight about your idea!"
"I'm gonna tell her as soon as possible."
"I still don't get it, anyway…" Mrs Cake said while exiting the room.
MEANWHILE, AT RAINBOW DASH'S CLOUD-HOUSE…
"Leaving like so is not what a REAL friend like him would do!- The cyan pony said -Maybe there's something worst, deeper in this situation! No, it's IMPOSSIBLE that he left because he wanted to! He would at least greet us before leaving! Something happened. I can feel it! I KNOW it! Well, no i don't know what happened, but i know that SOMETHING happened! … I need to calm down."
The pegasus flied to the kitchen, and make herself a warm cup of tea.
"This is not a thing that an awesome pony like me would do, but i really need a cup of tea!" She thought.
After drinking the cup of tea, Rainbow Dash came back to her even-too-out-loud thoughts.
"Maybe i should tell Twi' about this feeling i have…"
MEANWHILE, AT FLUTTERSHY'S COTTAGE…
"I just don't know why he left!" The yellow pony said in tears.
Angel was staring at her.
"Oh Angel, what am i going to do? Did he left because i did something wrong?"
The rabbit shooked.
"Maybe he didn't left because he wanted to. Actually, he just disappeared. Can human disappears? Probably not."
Her pet was pointing a photo of Twilight.
"Maybe i should tell her, Angel!"
"How do you know what they did?"
"They told me."
"Oh.. and where is…"
"She left for a moment."
"LOL we're alone!"
"I dunno, i just wanted to point it out. Don't look at me like so, I'M NOT HOMO!"
"I'm just gonna facepalm…"
MEANWHILE AT SWEET APPLE ACRES
"Where is that human that helped Big Mac last week?" Apple Bloom asked
"Ah have no idea sugar cube… Ah wannna know it too…" AppleJack said.
"Maybe he didn't really left. Ah just have this feeling. I don't think he wanted to left for some reason, leaving his friends alone…" Big Mac said.
"Ya know what, bro? Maybe ya're right!"
"Tell it to Twilight, maybe she knows what to do." The colt said.
"Ah'm on mah way!" And she ran out the farm.
MEANWHILE, AT RARITY'S SHOP…
"C'mon sister, why you're so sad?" Sweetie Belle said
"Because one of my friend just disappeared, poof!" Rarity answered
"The human? Like, poof? Really? Is he a magician?"
"I don't know, but it's rude how he left without saying goodbye to his friends!"
"Are you sure?"
"No, now that i think… maybe he left because something happened! I surely know that he's not a magician of any kind, he's been nice with us the last month… Something happened. I need to tell my idea to Twilight!"
And the mare stopped everything she was doing.
"Don't make any disaster while i'm away, little sister!"
All the ponies met at Twilight's home and knocked at the door.
"I'm coming, just wait a second!" A voice from inside the tree said.
Twilight opened the door, he had some travel bags.
"What are you doing Twilight?" The other mares asked her.
"I'm…" She tried to say
"We gotta help our friend! It's time to stop wasting time!!" Rainbow Dash exclaimed.
"I got this idea: He didn't left because he wanted too, something must happened to him!" Pinkie said, with one breathe
"Hey Ah got it too!" Applejack said.
"Me too!" Rarity replied
"Count me in, i had your same idea, girls!" Dash said.
"LET ME EXPLAIN!!" Twilight then screamed.
She took a deep breathe before speaking.
"I'm going to Canterlot for this month, to help the Princess find a way to get our friend back. If he want to."
"OF COURSE HE WANT! He wouldn't left us like so! I know him very well and i can say he's not that kind of people who left their friend like so!" Rainbow said.
"Well, i'm going anyway. My train leaves in 5 minutes. Bye girls, i'll miss you!"
Then group hug.
"Good luck Twilight…" Fluttershy barely said.
"I really have to go now, bye!"
And she ran as fast as she could to catch is train in time.
"Well… Ah guess it's better if she does like so, two heads are better than only one!"
"HEY! I said that!" Spike said
"Oh hi Spike!" Pinkie greeted the dragon
"So she left you all alone here?" Rarity asked.
"Yes, she needs someone to watch is library. And i have to write her a letter every day."
"Well… I don't have any other idea now. What we gonna do?" Pinkie asked
"I'll train for the Wonderbolts. It's not going to be the same thing without him, but i need to train." Rainbow Dash answered.
"It's better if we go, so. We can't help anypony at the moment. I hope something will happen soon…" Fluttershy said, before everypony took their way back to home.
The afternoon passed, and so the evening. They all went to bed. Everyone with their thought on their minds.
Chapter ten: Dreams
I don't remember very well what happened. Maybe i just got drunk.
Anyway, i woke up, Mark was watching TV.
"Anything to eat?" I asked
"I dunno, i think there's some cheese under the armchair…" He replied
"I already told you that the cheese doesn't go under the armchair!"
"Well, let's pick it up before some fucking mouse eat it…"
I got the the armchair, and looked for the cheese. There was just a Coca-Cola cap and 5 dollars.
"Well, at least i found 5 dollars… i'll go get breakfast. What are you gonna do?"
"Right... Well, i'll go. Later."
I drove to the near shop. Well, actually it's a gas station, but it sells food and drinks too.
I bought some milk and cornflakes. With 5 dollars. it's a cheap shop. Fortunately…
The town changed a lot since i woke up from coma, and only a month passed.
Most of the town now have to deal with criminals, shootouts, illegal races and stuff like that. And almost half of the population left their home, abandoning them. This city is literally dying. I was lucky to not being death. But i wanted to go back to Ponyville, with my friends…
I syntonize the radio to a random AM frequency… and i listened it. The radio was playing "Winter wrap up".
I had to stop for a second. I parked and turned off the engine. That song destroyed my mind for some minutes.
"IS THIS SOME KIND OF SICK JOKE!?" I yelled, inside the car. People could still hear me.
I turned on the engine and i skidded away. I didn't care about signs, i was just running to home.
When i got there, i used the handbrake to stop the car.
Mark got out of the home, he was looking at me, and i was a mix of sad and angry.
"Yo man, what happened?" He asked
"I know it wasn't a dream, they're trying to contact me!"
"Dude… are you drunk again?"
"No i'm not!"
"So are you high?"
"WHAT THE FUCK DUDE! Of course i'm not high!"
"Ok, calm down! What happened?"
"Listen to the radio in my car."
We both got in, the radio was now playing a remix of "Love is in Bloom"
"You sein' this!?" I said
"Yes, that's Brony X. I always listen to that when i use your car. That radio born some weeks ago as a group project of the university. And it's actually a very followed radio!"
God. I hate when i have some ideas and they're wrong!
"Well, fuck this."
"First off, calm down, you seem pretty upset!"
"Shut up. I'll leave now, i have to think…"
"Ok, don't do shit!"
I looked at him, with the rage literally wrote on my face.
He looked back, nervously smiling.
I thrown the stuff i bought out of the trunk and then i left.
I drove as fast as possible in the abandoned part of the city to reach the sea. When i got at the same place, i think i crashed into a old sign, making it fall. Good thing that sign was just a pole made out of rust, so "Dashie" didn't got any damage to the body.
I stared at the sea. Talking to myself.
"Why was it a dream? I was so happy!"
"It's better if i'm here or if i go back to Ponyville?"
"If i go to Ponyville, what is Mark going to do?"
"And how can i get to Ponyville again?"
After some hours of thinking, i decided to lay down. And i fell asleep.
"Where am i?"
"Hey! You came back!"
I met Rainbow Dash in the dream. What the hell?
"Why did you left? I thought we were friends!" She asked
"I don't know what happened, but i WANT to come back with you! My life sucks here!"
"I'll ask Twilight!"
Suddenly, i heard a seagull.
"What's going on?" She asked
"Don't leave me!" I yelled, trying to catch her hoof, but i was too far.
I woke up. A seagull was flying over me. It was night. And when i fall asleep that it was around 3 PM.
I got to the car and looked at the clock. 9 PM. I slept 6 hours without being really tired. Is it normal? The dream i had was normal?
I got home, Mark was sleeping on the sofa.
I decided to go to bed too, even if i slept for 6 hours in a row…
That dream freaked me out…
Rainbow Dash woke up in her bed. She was heavily breathing.
"What in hay was that!?" She exclaimed.
The cyan pony then got out of her house, and flew to Twilight library.
Once she got there, she knocked heavily at the door, and a really tired dragon opened her the door.
"Oh Rainbow, it's you. You don't look good, what happened? And why you are here at 2 AM?"
"There's no time Spike, i just need you to send Twilight a letter!"
"Oh, ok. But then can you tell me what happened?"
"Yes, now move!"
"Ok, i'm ready"
I had a dream, i don't know if it was a dream or some kind of sick joke my mind is doing to me, but anyway, i talked to the human. he wants to come back here. He says his life sucks in his world.
I don't know how to feel, it was a dream, but it was so realistic!
I hope this is a good thing…
"…Rainbow….Dash… Got it! Now i'll send it."
And Spike blown away the letter.
"I don't think she will answer immediately, but let's hope." And she flew away.
"Jeez, that was fast… I hope this ends well…"
The next day Dash came back to the library, and asked Spike if Twilight answered to the letter.
The dragon shooked.
"Maybe she's just too busy to read the letter…" He said
"If so, i'll tell her by myself!" The pegasus replied.
"Don't do anything stupid, Rainbow!"
"HEY! I'm not a silly filly anymore! And you're the last one who can tell me what to do!" She said, angrily…
Rainbow flew as fast as possible to Canterlot.
When she got to the castle, she asked for Twilight.
"Miss Sparkle is out for lunch at the moment. I don't know where, i'm sorry." A guard replied.
The cyan pony flew from side to side of the town, looking for her friend. And she finally found her.
"Rainbow Dash, what are you doing here?"
"Did you get the letter i wrote to you!?"
"Yes, but i didn't read it, i was too tired…"
"Anyway, we need to talk, NOW." Dash said, with a quite angry tone
"Ok, sit here and tell me."
She then told Twilight what she dreamed about.
"Maybe you just can't afford the fact that one of your friends just disappeared with no reason."
"Maybe i'm the only pony who can talk to him! Maybe i have this link with him, for some reason!"
"Some reason? You two are like the best friend ever for each other."
Rainbow felt a bit embarrassed about that sentence.
"Anyway, i just had this dream. And i think it's REAL. I think i can REALLY talk to him!"
"Let's do a test. Next time you have a dream like so, tell him to take one of your feathers. If you have a missing feather the next morning, than there is a kind of… i don't know, link, or portal to the other world."
"That's stupid Twilight…"
"Want to know the truth or not? Do like so if you want to know!"
"Allright allright, i'll do like so!"
"Now i really have to go. Nice to meet you again, Rainbow Dash."
"I hope it's not only a dream…"
MEANWHILE, ON THE EARTH…
"Yo what the fuck dude! You just had a dream, again! That's all! Just because you basically "love" a cartoon pony so much to dream about her, it doesn't mean it was real!" Mark said
"I just don't know… It was so real…"
"Dream. it was a dream. Nothing more, nothing less."
"What about if we're like, i dunno, linked? Somehow. I was her best friend in my "coma-dream"! Why not?"
"Because it's ridicule."
"For fuck sakes!"
"Dude, just don't think about it, ok? Think about season 3! It's coming on next month!"
"It's coming in september…"
"Do you go to equestriadaily to watch the news?"
"No i don't…"
"Dude. it, was, a, dream. Nothing more than a dream."
"I'll prove you that it wasn't a dream!"
"I don't know…"
"Well, there's still the whole day before you go to bed. Let's do something!"
Then i remembered about the notes i took while i was in Equestria. I looked everywhere, and i incredibly found them on the pants i was wearing during the accident. How the hell did they got there?
"MARK COME OVER HERE!!!" I shouted
"What's going on!?"
"Look, those are the notes i was taking during my lifetime in Equestria. Still think it was all a dream?"
"Holy shit… You could have wrote them, but i didn't saw you writing or anything…"
"I found them on the pants i was wearing when i had the accident. It couldn't be a dream!"
"Shit, maybe you're right!"
"I KNEW IT!"
"I think we need a "Twilight" here too… this is pretty hard to explain…"
I knew that it wasn't a dream. And good thing i took notes! But i still don't know how they got into my pants…
Some minutes earlier, in Equestria…
"Are you sure this will work?" The Princess asked
"Well, if we don't try, we will not know it!" Twilight replied, with a grin on her face
The unicorn used a magical spell on the notes i took, and they disappeared.
"Well, let's hope he reads the message you and your friends al wrote him…"
Back to the Earth…
"Hey, what's this?" I noticed a piece of paper with a strange wax sign.
"I'm Twilight. This is a test for a spell for teleportation through dimension. If you read this, then continue reading, we all have a message for you.
We all miss you, we're sad about your departure. And i didn't even thrown a single party during the first week! -Pinkie Pie
Your head is perfect for hat designing! I always appreciated your help here at the shop! -Rarity
I wanted to thank you for helping us at the farm that day. But i don't know how to thank you if you're not here… -Applejack
I feel alone in my home now… -Fluttershy
I knew you would left without reason! You're one of my best friends! I hope you will get the notes and this letter back, so you will know it wasn't a dream! -Rainbow Dash"
"HOLD ON A FREAKIN' SEC!"
"Yo man, what are you yelling at!?"
"Look here Mark!"
"Woah… So they like… teleported here your notes and this letter?"
"If you know how to read, then you will know that you're right."
"What's that wax sign?"
"Spike's seal of approval. What the heck?" And i laughed
"I knew it wasn't a dream… but how can i contact them back? There isn't stuff like so here in this planet…"
"I have no idea… But if i'm not retarded, i think that when you dream, there's ACTUALLY a link to Equestria."
"Well, we only have to wait! I feel better now!"
"I'm a little freaked out, but what ever…"
I was happy! It wasn't a dream!
I got to bed at around 11 PM… and i started dreaming.
"Finally you're here!"
"I got the letter! I knew it wasn't a dream!"
"Well, take one of my feathers now, before it's too late!"
"Take one of my feathers, now!"
And i took one feather from her wings.
I woke up. I had a cyan feather in my hand.
And i fell asleep again.
The next morning, i showed Mark the feather.
"Wo wo wo dude! That is a feather from one of Rainbow Dash's wings!?"
"Dude this is so fucking amazing!"
"This reminds me of "Inception"…"
"Yeah, it reminds me that movie too!"
"There's a link with the 2 dimensions, and the link are the dreams that you and Rainbow Dash do. Am i right?"
"No, you're just a fucking genius!"
"How can we use this link? You can only talk to Rainbow Dash…"
"I dunno, but knowing how smart Twilight is, i think she will find a way."
MEANWHILE, IN EQUESTRIA…
"So, Rainbow Dash, what happened?" Twilight asked
"He took one of my feathers, as you can see." Dashie replied, showing Twilight her wing
"Did he said something else?"
"Yes, he got the letter we sent him."
"Well, i'm at only half a way! And it took only some weeks!" She smiled
"I hope you will get to a solution as soon as possible, i really miss him!"
"Everypony does. But now, i'll go back studying. See you, Rainbow!"
They were both happy for the succeeding of the test.
BACK TO THE EARTH
"That's incredible dude!"
"You two are linked in a special way. And i'm like: "OMGWTFBBQ"! That's awesome. I knew that you like Dash, but… in this way?"
"Don't joke about me…"
"Sorry, i didn't meant to."
"What shall we do now?"
"I have no idea."
"I think that… I'll go to loot the abandoned row, again…"
"Oki doki loki!"
I drove around the abandoned part of the city. It's a nice place for me, it's quiet, there's some stuff to loot, and there's no one!
I love to loot the houses or the cars that are in the middle of the street. Yeah, it's creepy, i know, but i just love to do like so, it reminds me of Fallout, which is my favorite videogame.
Then i found an old, black Buick, a tire was flat, and the the truck opened. It seemed not so rusty as the other wrecks, and that's why i got inside the car. Everything was pretty OK inside, there still was the keys in the steering wheel. I looked inside if there was any interesting loot, but i found just a gas can and an AA battery. I smiled when i thought about trying to turn on the engine, so i turned half-a-way the key, but nothing happened.
I got out and looked at the house where the car was pointing at. I wonder what happened before this cars were abandoned. Maybe a huge crisis made everyone left their stuff. Or maybe something else happened.
Anyway, i entered the house, and looked for something interesting. What i found gave me creeps: the house was like INTACT, except for the dust and the webs all over the rooms. I tried to use a switch, but the lights just had a some sparkles, nothing more. I so picked up my flashlight, and pointed it around to light my way. I found a fridge, and there was still food inside. If what i found could be called food.
"Jeez, what the heck happened here?" I told to myself.
After a while, i got back to the car and drove around the place, trying to find a good spot. Then, something catch'd my my attention. It was a car, i think, but COMPLETELY flatted, like if a tank just ran over it. I parked near the wreck, and looked closely. I could see crawler tracks on the metal of the car. I looked in front of me: more flatted car, completely or partially.
I froze: What the hell could a tank doing here 30 years ago?
Then it got windy and dark. It was really cold, and it was july!
I ran to the car, trying to turn it on, but it seemed to be literally dead. I was scared as hell. I tried to turn on the radio, but it was giving a blank signal. Suddenly, i spotted something moving really far away, but it was still in the beacons lighting range. It stopped, looking at me. It looked like a dog, a light colored dog, with a… kind of mane? That thing looked at me. It has really big, magenta eyes. I was nearly crying. What the fuck was that!?
I closed the car with me inside. that thing was getting near. I tried to turn on the engine, and it worked. I completely pressed the gas pedal, trying to ran over that thing, then i thought about what i was going to do: "Do i really want to kill that something?"
I used the emergency brake to try to stop the car.
50 meters before hit that something
As soon as i released the handbrake, I lost the control of the car, i was skidding.
20 meters before hit that something
I tried to use the normal brakes, but the car was skidding to much.
10 meters before hit that something
I just turn the steering wheel like an idiot, crashed into fence, and i stopped into a garden.
That thing was still looking at me, but it seemed to to be like scared, protecting its head with its legs.
I opened the door and fell outside the car, it was still on, but the bumper was damaged. I picked up the flashlight and pointed it to that "thing".
"What the hay…!?"
I ran to her, but then a flash just took her away, and i literally flew away, like if it was an explosion. I landed near the car. On my butt.
I could kill her… I could never ever forgive me for doing such an HORRIBLE thing. What the fuck was in my mind?
I ran back where Dash's was. There was nothing. Not a sign or something like that. Nothing.
I drove back home as fast as possible.
"Hey man what the fuck happened to you!?" Mark asked
"I…i… I SAW HER!" I yelled
"N..no! I REALLY saw her! I was going to ran over her with the car!!"
"That's not cool, bro…"
I sat on the ground, near the door of the house.
Mark got near and looked at the car.
"What happened to the bumper?" he asked
"I crashed to avoid her."
"It's better if the next time i go with you looting…"
"Ok, it'll be fun!"
"Now it's better if you go to bed…"
"Rainbow, are you here?"
"WHAT THE HAY WAS IN YOUR MIND!?"
"I'm sorry, i didn't know it was you, i'm really sorry, i was scared. I could kill you… I could never ever forgive myself for doing such an horrible thing…"
"I'm sorry Dashie…"
"It's ok, i'm fine, but what is that "thing" that was going to hit me?"
"It's a car, we use it for travel from place to place faster than going on foot."
"Oh ok. Don't use it again against me!"
"I'm sorry!" I said, almost crying
"Hey, calm down. Most important is that we're both fine!"
Aaaand i started crying. Now i know how Vinyl felt when i was in Ponyville. She hugged me.
"It's ok, you just need to vent yourself."
I didn't know that she could be so "romantic", if it's the right word… I think not…
Anyway, i cried. Both in the dream and reality.
"Feel better now?"
I hugged her in a tight hug, then i woke up.
"Dude, what the fuck…"
"It's nothing, i felt sorry for trying to ran over Rainbow Dash, she understood me anyway."
"Good. Now go back to sleep because you wake me up with your fucking sighs!"
My brain was fucked, i think...
Almost a month as passed. I met Rainbow Dash in all my dreams, and every day i go to loot with Mark, and we became junk dealers. It'a not a lot, but we live with it, and we have fun too.
So, today was a big day. A costumer asked us if we had a old Buick from the 80s, of course we don't have one, but i knew where to find one.
Another thing is that Mark sold his motorbike and bought a big Ford Transit, so we can load more loot instead of ruining the interiors of my "Dashie".
We tow the car back, and that guy gave us 5.000€ for that wreck. I was a little confused, but he was happy, that's what count!
We separated after a while so we could cover a bigger area. I used my "Dashie", Mark used is van.
I was listening to the radio. I was listening to Brony X. They have some cool DJs, and cool music too!
Anyway, it was even TOO hot that day. I looked up. No clouds.
I met Mark in a house near me, it was the sunset.
"Hey man, wazzap?"
"Nothing much, you?"
"I didn't found anything interesting…"
"Well, i found some old music tapes, i don't know if they work or not, but anyway…"
"Collectors always buy stuff like that."
"Yeah… yeah… Anyway, do you know what happened here that caused everyone to ran away?"
"A russian airplane with some chemical wastes crashed here 26 years ago. The army secured the area and make everyone left their stuff here. And they used tanks, they flatted some cars too…"
"Don't worry, if there was still something awful here, we would both be dead after 10 minutes entering here!" He then laughed
"What the fuck…"
"I know, i know, but it's safe!"
"If you say so."
"Well, i'll change road. See you later!"
He walked to the van, and turned it on, or tried to.
"Piece of shit! Y U NO START!?"
"Hey man, what happened?"
"I don't know, the engine seems like dead."
"I'll go find a phone, ok?"
"Ok, i'll wait you here."
I got to my car. It wasn't working too. I was a little scared now.
"Dude, why your car doesn't start up?"
"I don't know, it always worked fine, except when…"
"Except when…? He asked, really worried.
I could feel the adrenaline raising in my blood. I could hear my own heart.
"Except when i found Rainbow Dash…"
"Oh my god…"
We looked around, looking for some sign of ponies, but nothing happened.
Then the sun literally turned off, and a cold wind started to blown. I could hear the wind itself on my ears. It was incredibly cold.
We ran to the car before literally freezing. The radio was giving a blank signal, but the car started up.
I started to drive, at really low speed, around 10 MPH, and i turned the lights on.
Suddenly, a flash. And something landed on the hood.
"WHAT THE FUCK IS TWILIGHT DOING ON YOUR CAR!?" Mark shouted.
I was in panic. I pressed the gas pedal until it reached the floor.
Twilight teleported herself inside the car, on Mark's stomach.
"You need to come with me, now!" Twilight yelled at me.
"What about Mark!?" I replied, still pressing the gas pedal.
"He can come too, but you need to come with me, NOW, we don't have so much time! Grab my hoof!"
I realized that i was going at 70 MPH. Running towards Mark's van.
"DUDE WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO!?" Mark screamed.
"Grab my hand, it will all be fine!"
He grabbed my hand, and i grabbed Twilight hoof.
Then the time slowed down, and we got teleported behind the car, outside, on the road.
I could see my car crashing into the van, destroying the tank of the vehicle, generating an explosion in pure HollyWood style. I could see metal sheets flying away. I could see the metal of the vehicles folding. I could see a ball of fire from under the van, literally launching it in the air. And everything went dark.
I woke up in place familiar for me. Even too much familiar.
I sat on the bed and looked around: It was Fluttershy's cottage. I was teleported back in the place where i can be happy for ever.
I was going to get up, but a cyan hoof stopped me.
"Where do you think to go? Aha!" Rainbow Dash was there.
"Finally, i'm back here! I missed you!"
"We all missed you too!"
She hugged me. A really tight hug.
"I knew it wasn't a dream!"
"Of course it wasn't! I always waited for you, i always tried to find a way! I'm The Element of Loyalty!"
I started to cherish her rainbow colored mane.
Mark slammed the door and entered the room.
"HEY GUYS! You must come outside!"
"Hey Mark, you're ok!" I smiled
"Sure as a Pinkie Pie promise!"
We all laughed.
"C'mon, get up and go outside, we got a surprise for you!"
We walked outside.
Pinkie made a party, a "Welcome Back" party. She should had add the word "Home" at the end! After all it is my new home. And it wasn't a dream. It'S NOT a dream. Finally. I wasn't lost anymore. I live here, and i'm happy.
Now i live a normal life in an extra-ordinary place.
I even managed to tell my sentiments to Dash, and she returns them! She's my "marefriend", if a word like that exists. That could freak out someone, or even hate that, but i'm happy as i am. If you find something wrong on me being happy, then there's something wrong with you.
I'd never thought about being teleported here, then back to Earth, and finally live here.
It's been a year since we're here. Rainbow Dash is still training for a place in the Wonderbolts, and she always need someone to cheer her. Twilight works on some kind of spell almost every week. For example, last week she blew up a melon while trying to find a cure to headache! Pinkie Pie is always the same Pinkie Pie, still making parties to everyone in town. Rarity finally had a chance to expose her dresses in Canterlot. Applejack need help at least once a week, so i sometimes go to her, even with Rainbow, and we help her with the farm. Fluttershy finally became a little less shy, even if she just run away from almost everything, but she's not afraid of her own shadow anymore. The Cutie Mark Crusader are still looking for their talents, without success…
Nothing changed, except me. I changed a lot since i'm here. I found my love, i found my happiness, and the best thing is: i can share it with a friend.
Now that Twilight found a way to make me walk permanently on clouds, i live with Rainbow Dash. And i can't be much happier!
I'm finally happy.
"Rainbow, i finished it, finally!"
*After reading the story…*
"So, what do you think about it?"
"I think there's a lesson that you should add here."
"I know, but i want you to set it!"
"Ok. So, having a friend is nice. Sharing something with a friend is nice too. Living an adventure with your very best friend is pure awesomeness. Finding the love can't be described. It's too much things together, and it's only one sentiment. It's simply epic. It's an awesome feel! And never, ever, give up about your dreams! They will become true, one day!"
"…i love you…"
"…i love you too…"
