Scout stood at the end of the table as his teammates cheered him on. Everyone except the Medic.
"You don't know what this could do, you could explode from all this energy!" Medic warned
"Doc, I got this." Scout reassured the Medic.
His shoulders tensed, he was ready.
Scout popped open the first can and drank it down, he felt revitalized, he felt energy flow through him, slowly building up. When Scout finished his last can, he was literally vibrating from all the energy, his teammates stared at him in concern.
"I told you not to do it!" Medic said
Before Medic could do anything, Scout was gone. In a blink of an eye, Scout had dashed out the BLU team headquarters and was breaking the sound barrier. Twice.
"I'M A FREAKIN' BLUR HERE!" Scout shouted as he ran.
Scout was fast, but with 100 cans of Bonk? Not good. Scout as fast as lightning, everything was a blur, when he finally stopped, he was in the woods.
"What the hell was that crap?"
Scout well, scouted out his surroundings. He soon noticed that he felt different. He was on four legs instead of two. He looked at his reflection from a nearby river, rather shocked at his new appearance.
"This is a real frickin' embarrassment!" Scout said
His BLU team uniform was replaced with blue fur. He had a long black mane, he still had his hat and headset, he also had his backpack in which he stored his bat and balls, he still had bandages on his wrist, he had a winged shoe on his flank. He spotted a cyan blue pegasus pony with a rainbow mane taking a nap in the clouds.
"Hey!" Scout yelled
The pegasus pony continued napping.
"Hey knucklehead, I'm talkin' to you!"
Still no response, so Scout took a ball out of his pack alongside his trusty bat. He held the ball in his left ha- i mean hoof and the bat in his right hoof.
Scout sent the ball flying and it hit the blue pony, causing her to fall off her cloud. Scout went over and picked his ball up.
"Hey, I found my ball!"
The pony was rubbing her head, she was still in a daze.
"How's that feel, wimp?"
The pony got up, she was clearly pissed.
"what was that for?" The pony said.
"Uh, yeah, i need to know where the hell i am."
"You're in ponyville."
"Freakin' unbelievable. I'm talking to a winged rat."
"Hey! Watch it!"
"Yeah, why don't you come over and say that to my face, tough guy?"
The blue pony stared deathly daggers at him. Finally, she flew at Scout in a kazillion miles per hour, ready to bash his face in. Scout sidestepped, he grabbed the pony's rainbow tail and swung her into a tree.
"If ya order now, I'll throw in a second beatin' absolutely free!"
The pony snarled and leaped once again, Scout simply kicked her back into the tree.
"I'm not even winded."
The pony got up, her pride was hurt, but she growled once more.
"Today ain't your day, pancakes!"
The blue pony ran, she was fast, but Scout was faster. He was a considerable mile ahead until he stopped, turned around, and had his baseball bat in hoof. The blue pony was now flying towards him, ready to rip out his guts.
"Yo, batter up!"
Scout swung his bat at the pony, sending her flying into a town nearby.
"Way to go, pally!"
Scout rested his bat on his shoulder, and stared at the town.
"Time to go find a place to crash."
Scout walked towards the town. When he entered the town he looked around. Marveling at everything. suddenly he felt something hit the back of his head causing him to pass out. When Scout finally woke up, he was in a library, surrounded by ponies. He saw a pink pony who was jumping up and down. An orange one who had a stetson hat on her. A white unicorn and a lavender unicorn. One yellow pegasus pony sat in the corner. He spotted the blue pony, hovering in the air.
"How ya' doin' Skittles?"
The ponies had to hold her back from killing Scout.
"Who are you?!" the lavender pony asked
"You knuckleheads ain't even worth the effort!"
Scout could sense that they had enough fun and games, they wanted answers.
"Um, I-I don't even know where to start with you. I mean, do you even know who you're talking to? Do you have any idea, any idea who I am? Basically, kind of a big deal."
The ponies looked at one another, unimpressed.
"You listening? Okay… Grass grows, birds fly, sun shines, and brother, I hurt people."
The ponies shifted uncomfortably.
"I'm a force of nature! If you were from where I was from, you'd be f**king dead!"
The ponies felt a slight bit of fear as he pulled his bat out.
"Eat my dust!" Scout said before jumping through a window.
"Everypony go after him!"
Scout ran, he lost them in no time.
"No seriously, you all suck."
The only one who could keep up with him was ol' Skittles.
"I'm runnin' circles around ya!"
"Oh no you don't!"
They both poured on the speed, Scout couldn't seem to shake her, he maneuvered his way through the Everfree Forest.
He looked behind him and saw the cyan blue pony still close behind. He saw a tree branch ahead. and grabbed it.
"Think fast chucklenuts!"
The branch swung back and hit the pony right in the face, causing her to double over in pain. Scout ran as fast as he could.
"K, this does not look good here, um."
Scout had no place to stay, he didn't even know where he was. He decided to take a nap in the trees, out of nowhere, the cyan blue pegasus pony is in his face, Scout saw a teensy weensy bit of anger in her, screw that, she was mad, real mad.
"WHO ARE YOU?" She roared
"What the hell is your guys' problem?"
She slams him into the tree and asked one more time.
"Where'd you come from, and what's your name?"
"(sarcastic) Oooh yeah, you're real scary."
She slammed him once more, Scout's back hurt, he wanted to get out of here, but the blue pony gave him no chance of escape.
"I'm gonna headbutt'cha, I'm gonna headbutt'cha, I'm gonna headbutt'cha!"
"Yea, like ri-"
She was cut short by Scout bashing his head into her head, sending her falling.
"Nice hussle tons-of-fun. Next time eat a salad!"
As Scout sped off, Skittles couldn't help but stamp the ground in frustration.
That night Rainbow Dash could not sleep. She wanted to get her hooves on the new pony.
I swear when i finally catch him he's gonna be in a world of hurt.
Rainbow limped to the bathroom. She stared in it and saw her various amount of injuries. She had a black eye from Scout's headbutt, a grazed knee from falling off her cloud, and an aching back.
That stupid little......
No matter how hard she tried, she could not catch up to him. He was simply too fast. As Rainbow walked back to her bed, she remembered the taunts that idiot had thrown at her.
I'm runnin' circles around ya!
How's that feel, wimp?
Rainbow's pride was hurt after that beating, she went to sleep. Hoping that she would somehow get her mind of it.
Boy was she wrong.
Around midnight, she was awakened by somepony prodding her head with a cold, metal rod. She turned her head to find the pony standing on her bed post with a bat in hand.
"Yo wassup?" he said
In a blink of an eye, Rainbow Dash was chasing him through the town.
"Yeah, come get some, ya frickin' wuss."
Rainbow gritted her teeth. He was not going to get away this time. As they continued their mayhem through the city. Somewhere along the way she lost him. She looked around and found him leaning against the wall drinking what looked to be a soda.
Before Rainbow Dash could finish he left her in the dust. He had a trail of lights behind him, she couldn't keep up.
"Hey, a lotta good those wings didja!"
The pony turned and did a mock salute to Rainbow before running into a wall. Rainbow jumped up with glee. She finally caught him. She quickly found a piece of rope and tied him up. She dragged him to Twilight's and kicked open the door.
Twilight was heard jumping out of bed, she tumbled down the stairs and was greeted by Rainbow.
"Rainbow, it's midnight! Can't this just wait 'till the morning?"
"No! I am not taking chances and letting this......" She turns and spots the pony giving him a shy grin
"This thing escape!"
Twilight studied him, and suddenly she looked up.
"Is this the pony from this afternoon?"
"Ya think?" Rainbow Dash replied
Twilight turned and had a discussion with Dash, all the while Scout chewed at the rope. When they turned around they found the pony leaning against the wall, ball in one hoof, bat in the other.
Before Rainbow could finish, she was greeted by a ball to the face. The pony grabbed the ball and ran. When Rainbow Dash could finally walk straight, she stamped the floor in frustration.
"I WAS SO CLOSE!" Rainbow Dash yelled
"Calm down Rainbow. You could probably catch him another time right?"
Rainbow sniffled and finally calmed down. But a voice was suddenly heard outside the library.
"Think fast knucklehead!"
Another baseball flew in and bonked Dash right between the eyes. Rainbow was seeing stars by now. She couldn't walk straight. When she finally shook out of her daze. She let out a growl.
"I am going to TEAR HIM TO SHREDS!" Rainbow yelled before taking off into the night sky.
Meanwhile, at Fluttershy's house......
Fluttershy was peacefully asleep, when all of a sudden, a long metal bat prods her head and wakes her up. She turns and looks, she was greeted by a "Yo wassup?". Fluttershy screamed as the pony ran out of her house. He was content. He had all the people to mess with, what's not to like?
The next morning, Twilight invited the gang over for a meeting.
"What's this all about Twilight?" Rarity asked
"Rainbow Dash dropped by last night and was assaulted by that pony again." Twilight replied.
The rest of the ponies turned and looked at Rainbow Dash who sat in a corner, arms crossed.
"Had another run in with ya boyfriend again Skittles?" Applejack said with a chuckle
Rainbow Dash flew out of the corner and was soon face to face with AJ.
"Listen here, you call me Rainbow Dash, not "Skittles" Second, he is not my boyfriend! He is another huge pain in the flank!" Rainbow Dash protested
"Lighten up a bit Rainbow dear." Rarity soothingly said.
Eventually, Rainbow Dash calmed down and hovered back to her corner.
"Ok, first, we know that this pony is dangerous, he is fast, he is sneaky, he is unpredictable, so if any of you see him, i'll need you to get some answers out of him." Twilight said
Everypony nodded in agreement. They knew that the pony was fast and sneaky. They would have to keep an eye out for him.
"I wrote down the most possible locations that he might be hanging out in."
Everypony waited, but Twilight could not find the scroll. She searched everywhere, but it was nowhere to be found.
"Where is it? where is it? WHERE IS IT?" Twilight asked in a panicked voice
"I bet that monster took it!" Rarity exclaimed
"That monster has a name y'know."
They faced the direction of the voice and found the pony standing by the door. He had a scroll in his hoof and a bat in the other.
"The name's Scout. Now wave goodbye to your secret crap, dumbass!"
He sped out the door with the ponies hot in pursuit.
"Everypony chase him down!"
Applejack and Rainbow Dash were the only ones that could keep up with him.
Scout poured on the speed, he weaved through the city, hoping to lose them. Scout leaped over a stall, Applejack came to a screeching halt and cursed. One down, one more to go. Scout was in an open field by now. Rainbow Dash locked on him like a heat seeking missile and charged at him. She came up short and crashed in to the dirt. Rainbow looked up and found Scout looking down on her. He had a bat in his hoof and he was ready to swing again.
"Wait! Wait! Wait! Don't sw-"
Rainbow Dash was nearly hit in the face, the patch of dirt next to her was gone, a hole was present instead.
"That's a warning. Don't you ever cross me again!"
Scout ran off, Rainbow Dash could here him in the distance going "Wananananana." Rainbow Dash stood up and brushed herself off and threw another tantrum. She was Equestria's Best Young Flier. How could she lose to a simple earth pony?
Rainbow Dash sat there until her friends came. They simply stared at her. She just sat there, doing absolutely nothing.
"Uh, Skittles? Are you okay?" Pinkie Pie asked
Rainbow Dash didn't answer, she hovered towards her house, she didn't want to be seen anymore. As she left, her friends could see tears streaming down her cheeks.
Well, here it is. The third chapter is here. Not sure if thats bad news or good news. I noticed that a decent number of you want some romance in this story. If you guys do, tell me in the comments below.
Somewhere in the apple farms, Applejack was bucking her apples as usual. When suddenly, out of nowhere, a pile of apples were dumped on top of her. She mined her way out the apples and saw Scout.
"Ya dirty little rascal." Applejack said
"Try and keep up this time chucklenuts" Scout said before running off
Applejack gave chase, she didn't want to lose him again. Applejack was fast, Scout was faster, they chased each other through the town, when all of a sudden, Scout stopped, turned around and had a fish wrapped in newspaper in his hands.
"What in tarna-"
Applejack couldn't stop in time, she got hit in the face by Scout's fish and was sent flying, she crashed through her barn and landed on the floor. She couldn't help but feel frustrated and disgusted. She still had fish juice all over her face. She was set to go search for Twilight. Suddenly a baseball flew through the hole that Applejack made, it hit her between the eyes and caused her to derp so bad that Derpy looked normal compared to her.
"That little rascal."
She derped her way through town and reached Twilight's door. She opened it and stepped inside. She shook off her daze and saw Rainbow Dash halfway through a lecture while the other ponies sat and listened. She looked at them and slowly made her way next to Pinkie.
"What's this all about?"
"Dashie has a plan to catch that big mean Scout!" Pinkie replied in her usual hyper self
"As i was saying, we set a trap around the Everfree Forest."
" 'scuse me Dash, but don't y'all need bait?" Applejack asked
Rainbow Dash rolled her eyes in annoyance.
"This is our bait!"
She produced a baseball, the same one that hit Applejack, and a yellow soda can, it said BONK! on the side. The ponies gasped.
"How did you get that?" Twilight asked
"Long story, that involves way too much fish." She shuddered at that thought.
"Anyways, with this as bait we're sure to catch him now!"
"I wonder how the BLU team's doin'?"
Scout kinda missed the blue team, he missed being on the battlefield, but he was quite content here. He had tons of ponies to mess with. Scout suddenly thought about what would happen if Heavy crossed over. He found this in his head.
He shook that thought out of his head. Things were wacky enough around here. The Bonk! had worn off, if Skittles found him, he'd really have to gun it. He pulled out his gun, the double barrel sawn-off shotgun that has laid waste to so many rivals. The Scattergun, his weapon of choice, besides his bat and ball that is. He fired a shot. To make sure he was stocked.
Out of nowhere, the cyan blue pony charges into him, she had her hooves on her shoulders, he couldn't move his arms or headbutt her. He was out of options. He inches his left arm into his pack.
"I got you now you pain in the flank!"
"Oh yeah, you have rainbow hair and your a pony. Real scary." Scout said with sarcasm
Rainbow rears back her right hoof and punches Scout in the stomach. She rears back again, ready to punch, Scout closes his hand around the first thing he feels. He prepares, before Rainbow could punch again, Scout tossed whatever was in his hand at Dash. He had gotten himself a bottle of Mad Milk, Rainbow's hair and face was dripping from the white liquid.
"You son of a-"
Scout kicked Rainbow in the back of the head. She fell to the ground and Scout leaped off, suddenly he felt a rope tighten around his ankle, he fell to the ground and looked back, there was Applejack and Rainbow Dash standing triumphantly. Applejack kicked him, sending him flying a few feet backwards, Rainbow tackled him in midair. sending him crashing to the ground.
"C'mon ladies, let's talk this through." Scout tried to reason, he was on the verge of being knocked out cold. He stared at them with slight fear.
The mares slowly walked towards him while he crawled backwards.
"MEDIC! Oh right, you ain't here."
Rainbow kicked him once more. Applejack smashed his face with a punch. He had a black eye and a grazed knee. Nothing serious, yet. Suddenly he remembered the one thing that he was meant to do, run. He jumped up and ran for his life. Rainbow Dash hot in pursuit. Scout tried to look for something to give him an advantage. Bat? nope, not enough time. Mad Milk? Still recharging. Good looks? Not now.
Scout continued thinking. He remembered something that might give him an edge. He stopped turned around and was tackled at full speed, he didn't think Skittles was that close to him. He wanted to use his Scattergun, but looks like that will have to wait.
"Gotcha' now!" Rainbow said triumphantly
Scout was out of options. Looks like this was the end. He sulked the whole time Dash and Applejack dragged him back to Ponyville. Before they could reach, Twilight came sprinting towards them.
"What's up Twi?" Rainbow asked
"There's another dragon taking a nap."
"Yup. Fluttershy can't get it to cooperate and we can't take it down. We'll need someone who's fast, fearless, and basically unstoppable."
The three ponies looked back at Scout.
A few minutes later, the gang was climbing the mountain. Twilight had insisted on bringing Scout along in case. Although Rainbow Dash wasn't happy about that, she grumbled and put the tied up Scout on her back.
"Boy, you got some muscle dont'ya Skittles?"
Rainbow ignored him. The other ponies giggled. When they reached, Rainbow threw Scout down.
"What was that for?"
"EVERYTHING" Rainbow snarled
Scout continued sitting there being the unstoppable badass that he was. While the ponies tried to get the dragon to cooperate. Eventually Rainbow got fed up like last time and kicked the dragon. It roared at her and stomped out. The ponies cowered in fear.
"You knuckleheads need some help?" Scout said smugly
"Back off and mind your own business."
"Okay. I'll be here if you need me."
Rainbow continued dodging the dragon's fireballs and stomps.
"You sure you don't want my help?"
The gang couldn't keep this up any longer, they needed help.
Twilight used her magic and loosened Scout's rope. He shook them off and pulled out his bat.
"Alright, watch and learn kids."
Scout ran over and ran up the dragon's chest. He eventually reached the face of the beast. He used his bat and beat the dragon's ears to bits.
"Ya' like that lizard boy?"
The dragon roared in outrage and breathed fire. Scout pulled out his Scattergun and shot both the dragon's eyes out. The dragon, having no eyes, fell off the cliff and died. Scout emerged triumphantly.
"What did i tell ya'?"
Everypony thanked him. Everypony except Dash that is.
"C'mon Skittles, come over and thank your uncle Scout."
Rainbow Dash mumbled a quiet thanks.
"How could we ever repay you?" Twilight asked
Scout thought for a moment and made his decision.
"I want wings. Like Skittles."
Twilight hesitated and finally gave in. before she could cast a spell, Rainbow Dash pulled her aside.
"What do you think your doing?"
"Giving him wings? That's like giving Pinkie Pie even more energy!"
Twilight debated that for a while and came to the conclusion that they needed to thank him one way or another. So without a moment too soon, Scout was given wings.
Scout flew around with his new wings, he was even faster than before, Rainbow was gonna have a tough time catching up to him now. The gang climbed down the mountain and headed back home. Rainbow Dash slowly flew back to her home. When all of a sudden the blur of a figure flew by followed by a fish to the face. Rainbow Dash yelled in frustration as she wiped the fish juice off her face.
So, you guys really want Rainbow Dash X Scout? Really? Fine. You win. I'll come around to that sooner or later, be sure to stick around, someone from the BLU team is coming to town.
It was a fine morning, the sun was shining, birds were flying. Just a normal day. Rainbow Dash didn't want to go out, she was hurt, her pride was hurt. She had taken another beating from Scout yesterday. She couldn't help but remember why she didn't want to answer him in the first place. She didn't want to get caught blushing. As annoying as Scout was, he was quite good looking.
"Time to go clear the clouds."
Rainbow Dash stood on her porch. She jumped and prepared to fly, instead she found herself falling. No sooner, a flash of blue had caught her, she was soon dropped on a soft cloud, she turned to thank her savior, she turned and saw Scout instead.
"You saved me?"
"Of course chucklenuts. I cleared the clouds for ya' too."
"Nothing better to do anyways."
Rainbow Dash stared in to his icy blue eyes. He was fast, had an attitude, and was good looking. just Rainbow's type.
Focus Rainbow, you're supposed to hate this guy, he's a jerk. But, he does seem kinda nice now.
Rainbow Dash looked once more into his blue eyes. And then she turned and took a nap. Typical Rainbow.
"Whatever you want knucklehead."
Scout flew off to go practice flying some more. He still hadn't quite perfected flying yet. He would occasionally near miss a couple of buildings before landing. Rainbow Dash kept watching, she knew exactly how it felt like when she first tried to fly. It was good, she was a fast learner, and so was Scout. In a matter of seconds, he had broken the sound barrier, instead of having a trail of rainbow behind him, he had blue light, kinda like when he drank BONK!
Even Rainbow Dash was stunned. She hadn't expected that. Scout landed on her cloud and did a hoof pump.
"Didja see that? Freakin' unbelievable!"
Scout continued gloating and hopping around. He soon noticed Rainbow Dash staring at him.
"Uhm, you okay there Skittles?"
Rainbow Dash shook it off and felt blood rushing to her face. She was blushing. Scout had a grin on his face.
"Stop it! It's not what you think."
"Sure it is." Scout replied sarcastically
Rainbow Dash reared back a hoof, but Scout saw this coming and soon took off into the sky.
"Looks like Skittles has a crush." Scout said with a chuckle
Scout flew over to Fluttershy's. Maybe there was something she needed help with. Halfway there, a pack of bunnies ran past him. Scout stared at them and continued flying to Fluttershy's. When he reached he found Fluttershy panicking.
"Hey, hey, hey. slow down there pancakes. Wassup?"
"The bunnies escaped!"
Fluttershy continued panicking, Scout took matters into his own hooves and flew after the bunnies. Seconds later he had all the bunnies back to Fluttershy.
"You can thank me later."
Scout took off again. He flew to Sweet Apple Acres. He sat on a tree top and found Applejack bucking apples as usual.
"Need some help?" Scout inquired
Scout shrugged and flew off. He found himself at Twilight's soon after. her place was a mess. Books were everywhere. twilight was trying to clean up, Spike just made things even worse.
"You know your supposed to put the books in the bookshelf right?"
Twilight looked at him. It was clear that she was not happy.
"Fine. If you know so much, you do it then."
Twilight sat in a chair and crossed her arms. Scout cracked his knuckles and a grin appeared on his face. Scout said a rather familiar quote.
"I'll clear this in 10 seconds flat."
Clear them he did. In no time at all the library was cleared. Twilight just stood there mouth agape.
"Thank me later."
Scout flew out the library and landed on a cloud. Content with his new life.
Pinkie Pie was throwing another one of her wild parties. The gang was having a chat.
"You know, that Scout guy has been awfully nice lately." Twilight said
"I know. He helped me get my bunnies back. He's so kind."
"He helped me clear the clouds. And did you see those awesome moves?"
Rainbow stared off into space dreamily upon thinking of Scout.
"Y'know, you and another pony seem kinda similar." Pinkie Pie said
"Really? Who?" RD asked
"Oh, i don't know. Perhaps a certain blue pony who out ran you." Twilight said
"I think you like him." Twilight answered
The ponies giggled. Rainbow Dash's face was turning red.
"I most certainly do not like him." Dash replied
"You seem to work way too hard to make us all think you hate him."
"That's because i do hate him!"
"And you seem obsessed with catching him."
"I need to get my revenge. One way or another."
"Rainbow Dash, are you trying to impress him?"
Rainbow was blushing furiously. The ponies couldn't contain their laughter any more.
"I don't have a crush on him!"
"Sure you don't." They sarcastically said.
"Buck you all."
Rainbow Dash left, her face was still red from blushing. But deep down inside, whether she liked it or not, she had a crush.
Scout was just chilling on a cloud. When all of a sudden, random thoughts began popping into his head. How would the team look life if they were here? How would Heavy react to all this adorable? What would the ponies do? He had so many questions. He got up and continued practicing.
Scout remembered how spy used to tease him. He would borrow Scout's earphones and say
"This is Scout, rainbows make me cry. Over."
He couldn't help but chuckle. The tables were turned now. He continued flying. Unaware that he was about to crash into tree. With a huge bang. Scout crashed into the tree and fell down. He got up in time to see a portal open and close. A pony had come through the portal. Scout almost couldn't comprehend what he saw.
"Heavy?" Scout asked.
"Scout? Is good to see you!" The ecstatic Heavy replied
Might not be updating for a while. And yes, i have added Heavy because a decent number of you wanted him in the story. Heavy might look a bit weird with hair but this was the best i could find. Don't worry, i'll explain in the next chapter.
So, Scout X Rainbow Dash wasn't enough? You want more. Okay, i'll try, all this romance isn't easy you know. Who would you like to see cross over next? Demoman? Spy? Soldier? Medic?
Scout could only stare in shock. He was happy, but still confused. Heavy runs over and gives Scout a bear hug, nearly crushing him to death.
"It's good to see you to big guy."
Scout looked at him, he noticed that Heavy had hair. He was missing something crucial. Scout noticed that his gun, Sasha was gone.
"Uhm, Heavy. What happened to your gun?"
Heavy looks to his side, expecting to find the gun. Instead, he had nothing. He stared breathing heavily, slowly getting faster and louder. Scout backed up and braced himself. Instead, Heavy let out a hearty laugh and wiped tears from his eyes.
"I is left Sasha back at base."
Scout breathed a sigh of relief, at least he didn't have to deal with an upset Heavy.
"Let us go back now."
Heavy turned. He was expecting to find the portal, instead he got a nice view of nature. Heavy stood there stunned.
"Uhm, I think we should go now."
Along the way, Scout asked an important question.
"Uhm, who got you here?"
"So, how's the team doing?"
Scout kept silent. He hadn't expected Heavy or any other of his Teammates to cross over. But he was glad nonetheless that he had company.
Scout pulled the Heavy along. All the while, Heavy looked around in amazement. Scout needed someone to give him a tour. Someone who could handle him if he got mad. He thought for a while and decided Fluttershy was the way to go. Scout pulled Heavy to Fluttershy's cottage. He knocked on the door, and Fluttershy came out. She stood there and gasped at the huge pony on her porch.
"Uhm, uh, i, uh." Fluttershy mumbled
"Flutters, this is Heavy. Heavy, this is Fluttershy."
Heavy let out a huge laugh and slapped his knee.
"You are so small! It's funny to me!"
Scout backed up and took off. He didn't want this to get any awkwarder. He soared through the skies and landed on a cloud, ready to take a nap. He tossed and turned for a while. He tossed once more and felt his nose rub another nose. He opened his eyes to find Rainbow Dash staring back at him. Her face was slowly turning red, Scout couldn't help but feel blood rushing to his face too. Eventually he heard his brain call to him.
Yo, earth to Scout. GET UP!
Scout jumped up and hovered in the air. Rainbow did the same.
"What do you think your doing?" Rainbow asked
"Takin' a nap."
"On my cloud?"
"On your cloud? Funny, I don't see your name here."
Rainbow Dash looked at him with hatred. Scout knew that Skittles already had a crush on him. He had s smug look on his face.
"Give this cloud to your boyfriend won't ya' Skittles?"
Rainbow stormed off. Leaving Scout with a huge slap mark.
Totally worth it
Scout lounged on his cloud. He hadn't meant to leave Heavy. He had questions for him. But Scout felt like Heavy needed to adapt to this world before Scout could ask questions.
Scout felt hungry. He pulled a can of Bonk! out of his pack. eyeing it. Under normal circumstances, Scout would only use this in emergencies. But Scout truly did not give a shit. He popped the can and drank. He admired the scenery, he decided to go check on Heavy. Only a few minutes had passed but Scout was bored. He made his way to Fluttershy's.
Scout knocked on Fluttershy's door. Fluttershy answered the door. He saw Heavy in the living room taking a nap.
"I hope the big guy isn't any trouble."
"Oh no. He's quite the sweetheart."
Scout looked at Fluttershy with a "Huh?" look. He asked again.
"Uh, Flutters. You sick?"
"Oh no, i'm perfectly fine."
Scout raised an eyebrow. He backed up again, quite surprised that Heavy hadn't punched the house down. He took another sip from his can of Bonk! and sped off. He soared the skies, and saw Rainbow on a cloud. He flew next to her and offered a challenge.
"Care for a race Skittles?"
A grin appeared on Rainbow's face. She was ready. Scout took another sip of Bonk! and threw the can away. He prepared.
"On my mark." Rainbow said.
Scout buzzed his wings.
They both took off, Scout had the upper hand at first, Rainbow caught up to him seconds later. They were neck and neck, Scout squeezed every bit of energy out of his wings and flew as fast as he could. When they crossed the finish line, they couldn't believe it. It was a draw. Pinkie Pie sat there doing commentary on what in the hay just happened.
Scout simply sat there and asked a simple question.
"So, who won?
"It was a draw!"
Rainbow Dash and Scout couldn't believe their ears. They had never been tied before in a race. They looked at each other and growled.
Again and again they got draw after draw. They both simply gave up and headed off. It was evening, the sun was going down. Scout headed for Fluttershy's cottage to go get Heavy.
When he arrived, he entered and found Heavy giving Fluttershy a pony ride. Literally. Scout stood at the door and raised an eyebrow. Fluttershy hopped off Heavy. Scout continued looking.
"Sooo, you ready to go now Heavy?"
Heavy looked sad, he didn't look like he was ready to leave. Scout took this into consideration, and an idea sprang to life.
"Why don't you stay here for the night Heavy?"
Heavy's eyes lit up. He stared at Scout for a moment before closing the door. Scout heard laughter and cheers come from behind him.
Heavy sure is excited.
Scout stopped and looked at the moon. Wondering if he'll find happiness and joy quite like Heavy's.
So, what didja think? I know, might be a little random and quite confusing, but things will look up.
So, Medic will be making his appearance in the next chapter. Just a heads up.
Scout woke up. It was a new day. Scout sat up and yawned. He hadn't gotten much sleep, instead he spent the whole night building a cloud fortress twice the size of Rainbow Dash's. For the fun of it. He had already made a room for Heavy if he ever decided to come back.
"Time to get up."
Scout sighed and dragged himself off the bed. He saw the roof of Rainbow Dash's house. Scout had purposely Built his mansion on top of Rainbow's house. Just to make her jealous. Scout got up and put on his black and yellow earpiece and cap. He opened the door and leaped. He soared across Ponyville, looking down at the citizens. He spotted Rainbow Dash on a cloud reading a book. Scout landed on the cloud and lied down next to Rainbow. He looked at the cover of the book.
"I hate you." Rainbow said. She hadn't even looked at Scout
"What'cha reading?" Scout asked
He looked at the cover and couldn't help but feel like he'd seen the main character before.
"This chick kinda reminds me of the CEO of Mann Co."
Rainbow sat up.
"I'm listening. What did HE do?"
"Cutting his way out of primate hell."
Rainbow didn't look impressed.
"Fighting off a lion while simultaneously having his hair cut."
Rainbow started listening with a bit more attention.
"And last but not least, Single handedly wiping out the Indonesian berzerker shark and making it cry."
Rainbow continued listening as Scout told every single story he had to tell about Saxton. When Scout was done they both lied down on the cloud. Both staring at the sky.
"Just because i'm not trying to kill you now, doesn't mean i don't hate you." Rainbow said
"I know Skittles. I know."
Rainbow reared a hoof back, Scout saw it coming and took off. He decided to go and get lunch. But he stopped by at Fluttershy's cottage to see if Heavy wanted to follow. He knocked on the door and Heavy answered.
"Hey big guy. You want to go grab lunch?"
"Da!" Heavy said in his russian accent
Scout and Heavy left and arrived at a cafe. Scout ordered hay fries. Heavy looked through the menu. Scout saw his eyes light up. The waiter came to take their orders.
"I'll have the hay fries."
The waiter stared at him and raised an eyebrow. He left shortly.
"Easy big guy."
Scout looked around. Eventually the food came. Scout took a bite. He had been living on Bonk! and Mad Milk for the past few days, he tasted his food, surprisingly it tasted like actual fries. Heavy looked at his Daffodil sandwich for a while. And in one big bite it was gone. Heavy chewed and swallowed.
"That was delicious!"
Scout and Heavy parted ways. Heavy back to Fluttershy's and Scout back to his house. On the way back, Rainbow Dash was flying around. Something in her mouth. Scout ignored it. He was flying when all of a sudden, a flash of cyan blue and a rainbow mane was all he could see before he was smacked in the face by a bat. He turned to face his attacker and found Rainbow Dash hovering in the sky, dressed up as him.
"The hell are you doing with my stuff?"
Rainbow Dash chuckled and landed on a cloud beside him.
"To mock you."
Scout rolled his eyes in annoyance. He landed on a cloud and observed his swollen jaw. Rainbow Dash had hit him pretty hard. Now it was his turn. He pulled a ball and bat out of his pack and hit it. It flew and hit Rainbow in the head. She derped and stumbled around for a while. She shook off her daze and chased him. They flew everywhere, through Apple Acres, the Everfree Forest and the streets. Scout turned back and shouted a taunt.
"Try and keep up this time will you chucklehead?"
Rainbow growled and poured on the speed. Scout gunned it and flew fast as he could into his house. And locked the doors. Scout heard a loud BANG! outside as Rainbow crashed into his door.
Scout finished laughing and found a pink envelope. It smelled like muffins and cookies. He opened it up and found an invitation to a party on Sugarcube Corner.
"Nothing to do anyways."
He flew over to Sugarcube Corner. He entered and found ponies wearing party hats, dancing to a childish tune and various other childish games. There was a pony blindfolded and playing "Pin the tail on the pony". Another pony was pigging out at the food stand. Scout saw a plum colored pony with a mulberry shaded mane drinking punch straight out the bowl. The whole gang was there, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Heavy, Rarity, and even Skittles was there. She didn't look hurt from her collision with the door though.
"This is a party?"
Pinkie Pie rushed over and answered.
"yup! This is one of my Pinkie parties!"
Scout looked at everyone. Everyone was looking at him.
"Why wouldn't this be a party?" Twilight asked
"I dunno. But where i come from, a party is much more fun than this."
Pinkie Pie looked at him with curiosity.
"How could this get any more fun?"
"Is there a bar nearby?"
"There's the Frosty Mug."
Scout led them all there and bought a couple of drinks. He wasn't sure about everyone else, but from the sounds of laughter and cheering they were probably having a blast. Scout drank so much that even Demoman would've been jealous.
The next morning Scout woke up on his bed. He stared at the ceiling for a while. He tried to recall exactly what happened last night. He tried to get up, but felt something, or more accurately, someone, on him.
"Looks like a lucky mare got to spend the night with Scout."
Scout looked on his chest and saw cyan blue fur and a messy rainbow mane. Scout sat there, doing absolutely nothing, hoping that he could piece together what happened. But whether he was ready or not. He was sure of one thing.
He had just banged Rainbow Dash.
Scout continued staring, he stroked Rainbow's mane while trying to piece together what happened. He had just banged Rainbow. He knew that much, but how? Why? And what about Rainbow? What would she do when she woke up? Rainbow Dash was still asleep. She looked beautiful, her hair smelled like skittles, she had a sleek body, Scout still couldn't imagine getting in bed with a beauty like Rainbow.
Scout continued stroking Rainbow's mane, eventually she woke up. She stared at Scout for a while, and then she leaned in and kissed him once more.
"You were amazing last night."
Scout couldn't believe his ears. He had just banged a girl for the first time, not only that, but she said he was good. He got up and said a goodbye before leaving Rainbow's house. Scout went and found a cloud to nap on. But he couldn't nap. He was still hyped up from what just happened. He decided that a little lunch would be nice. He headed over to Sugarcube Corner. Pinkie Pie was already up and jumping all over the place.
"Hey! How was last night? Why did you go inside Dashie's house instead of yours?"
Scout decided not to answer that question. He paid for the cupcakes and left. He flew up and landed on a cloud, eating his cupcakes. Rainbow joined him minutes later. They chatted about the best way to gain speed and basically everything about speed. Suddenly, Rainbow climbed on top of Scout, she had a seductive look on her face.
"One more time?"
Scout looked into her saucer panned eyes. She was drop dead gorgeous, Sure Scout had just banged her, but Scout hadn't remembered a bit of it.
"How about tonight sweetheart?"
Rainbow Dash's eyes lit up. He gave Scout a big wet kiss on the lips and flew off to clear the clouds. Scout went through his daily schedule. Lunch with Heavy, flying through Ghastly Gorge and what not. When the day was coming to an end, Scout flew off to Rainbow's house, he found her waiting in her bedroom.
"You know it's rude to keep a mare waiting."
Scout grinned and climbed on the bed, giving Rainbow a kiss.
The next morning, Scout woke up first, he looked down and again saw that messy rainbow mane and cyan blue fur. Scout continued stroking her until she woke up. Rainbow kissed him once more and flew out to clear the clouds. Scout met up with Heavy and they took a walk outside Ponyville. As they walked, they swapped stories, how the team was, and stuff like that.
They continued walking when all of a sudden, a portal opened, not one, but two ponies came out.
Scout still couldn't process what he saw. It was Medic and Spy.
Heavy rushed over and gave the both of them bear hugs. When Heavy finally let go, Spy turned to Scout with a grin on his face.
"How is the virgin today?"
Scout laughed, and laughed, and laughed, and laughed.
"What's so funny?"
Scout stopped laughing for a while and replied.
"Spy, you really gotta stop living in the past."
Spy wondered for a moment, then realization dawned on him.
"You mean, you-"
"Yup. Eat it ya' shapeshiftin' rat"
Spy looked at the ground clearly defeated. He was out of insults. He continued wondering, Rainbow Dash dropped by.
"Who are these guys?"
"Rainbow, this is Medic and that is Spy."
Spy looked up and saw Rainbow Dash, immediately he had an idea. He walks up to Scout and takes his earpiece.
"May i borrow your earpiece? This is Scout! Rainbows make me cry! Over!"
Everyone laughed. Everyone except Scout that is. Scout rolled his eyes in annoyance and gave them a tour of Ponyville. Medic decided to stay in the hospital, where he could finally talk to some one that had the same interests as him. Spy wanted to know if there was anywhere that he could remove the blood from his suit.
"Oh, I think my friend Rarity can help with that."
Rainbow Dash led them to Rarity's carousel. Spy entered first and soon struck up a conversation with Rarity. Dash and Scout left. Scout lied down on a cloud, Rainbow Dash put her head on his chest as they dozed off.
When Scout woke up, the sky looked the same. It wasn't nightfall yet. Rainbow was in the skies, clearing the clouds. Scout continued watching. Apparently some of Rainbow's laziness rubbed off on him. Scout didn't feel like moving, but he got up eventually got up and went to visit Medic.
When he went in he found Medic being a badass and healing basically every sickness and injury. He healed a pony that had his whole body in a cast, the pony burst out of his cast and trotted out the hospital.
Medic turned to face him, he had a crazy kind of look to him. Scout felt it kind of disturbing so he backed out the hospital and took off to find Spy. He knocked on the door of Rarity's carousel. He went in and found Rarity taking measurements of Spy.
"Uhm, am i interrupting?"
"Not at all my dear."
Scout again backed out. He knew that Medic was going to need some time to adjust, so would Spy. But did he expect them too change this drastically? Nope. Never.
Scout flew to Ghastly Gorge to practice, Scout was good at flying, but he didn't want to be good, he wanted to be perfect. Scout practiced maneuver after maneuver, trick after trick and did not stop until he perfected 10 new moves. He already had a signature move. He called it a day and decided to take a stroll through the woods, Scout always took a walk through the woods. He needed some time alone. This time, Scout was walking when all of a sudden, a swirling blue portal appeared. A pony walked through the portal and said a line.
"Down and give me twenty!"
I know. This chapter sucked. But i'm starting to run out of things to write. I will try my best to continue though.
I'm BACK! Looks like i just needed some time off, false alarm. Really sorry.
Scout woke up. The sun was shining, the birds were flying, the usual. Scout was comfortable on his cloud bed, it felt like the bed was made out of cotton. In other words, it was really really comfortable.
Scout dragged himself out of bed and made his way to the bathroom, he looked in the mirror and saw a bored stallion looking back at him. True, Scout was getting bored. He was meant for war, he couldn't just sit back and relax. He trained to fight and he needed to fight dammit, he missed the sensation of bonking people over the head with a bat, or blasting them with the Scattergun.
Scout gazed out his window, he saw the various ponies wandering and frolicking around. He sighed. The rest of the team had gone back to their universe, nopony was left except him and Heavy. They had decided that the war with the Reds had to go on.
Heavy had stayed back basically because of Fluttershy, they seemed to be inseperable since the day they first met. Why didn't Scout leave? Because of ol'Skittles. Scout and Rainbow Dash were still in a relationship, he couldn't just leave.
Hope the team's havin' fun
Scout put on his earpiece and cap. He kicked the door open and leaped out. He soared through the skies and spotted Rainbow practicing her stunts again. This time she was planning on doing barrel rolls right after she did the Sonic Rainboom. Scout looked on as Rainbow continued to throw up.
"Hey Skitz, might wanna lay off the barrel rolls for a while."
Rainbow Dash nodded in agreement and stumbled around before taking off, then falling again. Scout left Rainbow to recover while he looked for Heavy.
Heavy and Scout strolled through the town, they went back to their favorite restaurant, They always hung out here, this was the place that Heavy had his first Daffodil Sandwich. After they had a bit of catching up to do.
"So big guy, you ever miss being on the battlefield?"
"Things going okay with Fluttershy and you?"
Heavy's eyes lit up. You could tell that Heavy absolutely loved Fluttershy.
"Is is good yes."
They sat there and did nothing. All of a sudden, a green liquid fell from the sky barely missing Scout. He looked up to find Rainbow Dash on a cloud.
"Skitz, I thought I told you to lay off the barrel rolls?"
Rainbow gave him a cheeky smile before throwing up again. Scout facehoofed and grumbled. He gave up and flew up on the cloud.
"Ya' think you can try not to throw up on me?"
Rainbow nodded before throwing up again. Scout rolled his eyes in annoyance, he lied down and tried to sleep. He closed his eyes and tried to sleep. Although he couldn't fall asleep, Scout tried anyway. He closed his eyes the whole time. But he simply had too much energy and too less to do. He tossed and tumbled in the cloud. He felt Rainbow climb on top of him.
Rainbow stared at him with her beautiful rose red eyes. She really was a horny pony.
"Fine. Your place?"
Rainbow was grinning from ear to ear. She gave Scout a kiss and flew off, Scout simply watched her take off. Scout sighed. He still wasn't satisfied. Sure screwing Rainbow felt good, but he needed some sort of excitement. He needed to feel the rush.
Later that day, Scout was trying to break the sound barrier again, he did and it looked awesome. He sat there for hours thinking of a cool name for his new move. He finally just settled on Bonk!. Scout continued practicing. He remembered Rainbow Dash trying to do a barrel roll and decided to try some himself. He did close to 3 barrel rolls and he immediately landed. He threw up his hay fries.
"And your telling me to lay off the barrel rolls."
Scout turned to see Rainbow Dash standing there laughing.
"Gimme a break."
The next few hours were uneventful. Eventually, nightfall came and Scout flew into Rainbow's home. He climbed up the stairs and pushed open the doors to her room.
The next morning, Scout woke up and flew to his house. Rainbow had waken up early and was flying around. Scout hopped off his house and glided to Sugarcube corner. Scout opened the door and found the gang in there. Twilight came up to him.
"Princess Celestia wants to see us."
"I meant all of us."
Soon, they were on their way to Canterlot. Scout gazed out the window of the train and tried to find something to do. Eventually, they arrived at the castle of the princess. She seemed to be having a panic attack.
"Thank goodness you all are here."
"What's the problem?" Twilight replied
"There has been a maniac of a pony near Appleloosa playing with fire. I need you ponies to stop him."
Twilight nodded and no sooner they were back in the train. Scout banged his head on the walls. He was BORED, he tried to find ways to entertain himself, but nothing seemed to amuse him. He took out his bat and practiced for awhile. Eventually they arrived at Appleloosa. It was almost deserted, most buildings were on fire or already burned down. Only few still stood. Ponies cowered everywhere, hiding in every place there was for them to hide.
Scout scanned the area. It was creepy seeing a once widely populated town become so deserted and empty. Everypony was silent. Even Pinkie Pie was quiet.
"Where is every-"
Pinkie Pie couldn't finish her sentence. A jet of fire was blasted at them. Scout tackled her out of the way.
"Hey! Watch it chuckl-"
Scout stood there tongue tied. He couldn't comprehend what he saw. Before him stood a red pony with a gas mask on. It had a flamethrower by it's side.
The pony blasted a jet of fire at Scout before he could finish.
Scout was covered in flames, he was used to this kind of pain and hurt, but apparently Skittles wasn't. She ran around with her back on fire. Scout tackled her and splashed the both of them with Mad Milk. He and Rainbow Dash were instantly extinguished. Scout got up and pulled out his Scattergun. He pointed it at the Pyro and shot. The bullets definitely hit, but it just stood there and gave out a maniacal laugh.
Scout was kicked back so hard he went through a wall. He got up and shook off the dust, he pulled out his trusty baseball bat and charged. The bat made contact with Pyro's skull, but it stood there and did nothing. NOTHING. Scout didn't know what to do, this thing scared him, it was basically immune to everything. Scout took a baseball out and hit it towards the Pyro, but it shot a jet of blazing hot fire and incinerated it in mid air.
The Pyro turned to face him, but it walked past him and went straight to Fluttershy who was cowering in fear. The other ponies did nothing to help, they watched in terror as Pyro extended it's hoof towards Fluttershy. Fluttershy was shaking in fear, tears were streaming down her cheeks. The Pyro looked at her and tilted it's head sideways. It reached out with a hoof.
Pyro turned only to get slammed in to Heavy. He let out a deep growl and charged towards Pyro again. Pyro quickly got up and shot a wall of fire at Heavy. When the fire cleared, a flaming Heavy stood there, He looked pretty mad. Heavy lifted Pyro by the neck and hung him there for a good 10 minutes.
"YOU! YES YOU! YOU ARE DEAD!"
Pyro panicked and kicked Heavy, thus causing Heavy to drop it. Pyro ran for his life, his flamethrower was out of gas. Heavy gave chase, but Scout stopped him before he could advance any further.
"Woah, woah, woah, woah, easy there big guy. There could be more reds."
Heavy calmed down and observed the damage. Scout made a headcount to make sure nobody had turned into roast pony while he was busy.
"Skitz, you okay?"
Rainbow nodded, sure she was on fire for a while but she was fine. Not a scratch was on her. Scout didn't mind, he quickly observed everything and told everyone to get back on the train.
During the train ride, Scout asked Heavy how he got here.
"Train is has roof, so Heavy is climb on roof."
Scout did facehoof and continued staring out the window, he wanted to be free, he wanted to soar in the skies, he was definitely faster than the train, why should he be confined and held back by the train?
Scout had an idea, he turned around, he was grinning from ear to ear.
The mares stopped and stared at him attentively.
"20 bits says I'll reach Ponyville before the train does."
Rainbow Dash raised an eyebrow.
"20 bits says you won't."
Scout opened a window and prepared to leap out, he took a step back and leaped, finally free from the restraints of the train. He sped towards Ponyville, the train was fast, but it had to go through various twists and turns, Scout could just fly over them. He saw a massacre of turns swerving through the mountains and chuckled, he was going to win for sure!
Scout had Ponyville in his sights, he gunned it and flew as fast as he could, he landed on a cloud overlooking the train station and chuckled when he saw them arriving about half an hour later. Scout flew down and "Greeted" them.
"20 bits Skitz!"
Rainbow grumbled and tossed him the money. She took off to go take a nap, the ponies parted ways to go do whatever they were supposed to do. Scout and Heavy went to the cafe and sat down, ready to discuss the events that unfolded.
"So, how was your day?"
Heavy's smile faded. He turned a bit pale.
"I fear no man. But that... thing... It scares me."
Scout went a bit pale.
"No, I ain't talking about that freak, alright. ...He's not here, is she? How do I get this f**king thing off?!"
Scout tried to tear his dogtags off, but Heavy stopped him before he could.
"Relax, Pyro is gone. For now."
Scout calmed down eventually, he knew that there were other reds nearby, but where?Scout and Heavy swore not to tell anypony. The last thing they need is for Ponyville to have a panic attack.
The both of them parted ways and headed back to their respectful homes. Heavy was first to arrive. Fluttershy was sleeping upstairs, so Heavy walked as gently as he could. He sat down on a couch tried to sleep, it was evening but Heavy felt sore and tired. Before Heavy could fall asleep, he heard something breaking the door, he turned to see an axe breaking the door down. Heavy got up and prepared, eventually the axe stopped, Heavy breathed a sigh of relief. Then, Pyro burst through the door, Flamethrower by it's side.
Back in Scout's home, he sat on his bed thinking and wondering, where were the reds? Scout was paranoid, he had lived in such a peaceful place for so long, but he was still itching to bash a red's skull. But had he lost his touch? Had living in Ponyville softened him up? Scout pondered those thoughts, when out of nowhere a projectile landed next to him and blew up, Scout found himself falling to the ground, he was to shocked to move. He fell to the ground and felt every bone in his body turn into mush. He tried to get up but couldn't. Scout tried to call for help, when suddenly the barrel of a grenade launcher was pointed at his face.
"Oh, they're gonna 'ave to glue you back together ... in Hell!
Heavy prepared to fight, Pyro was already putting his axe back, suddenly for a brief moment, there was a moment of silence. Then, Pyro charged, flamethrower a blaze. Heavy dodged and ran out the house. He couldn't take Pyro on, he needed help. Heavy ran to an open field and stopped, he turned to find a Pyro bursting through a tree, Heavy's shoulders tensed, Pyro was only a few feet away from him. He could easily just blast Heavy with flames.
Heavy's breathing was, well, heavy. He took a moment to think, what could he do? What should he do? Heavy was running out of options. Then, he calmed himself down long enough to rush over and give Pyro a huge kick, sending it tumbling backwards. Heavy was still quite scared of this, thing.
Heavy ran over and tried to kick it again, instead Pyro sidestepped and gave him a mighty kick, sending him crashing through a couple of trees, Heavy got up, he felt pain throughout his whole body, he pulled out something from his backpack. It was a sandvich. He ate it in one bite and instantly felt energy ripple through him, his wounds healed themselves.
Heavy charged and slammed into Pyro full force. Pyro was dazed and couldn't react fast enough. It tried to get up but failed miserably and fell back down. Heavy came over and stomped Pyro's head so hard Pyro promptly died.
"You are dead. Not big surprise."
Heavy kicked Pyro's body once more and headed back to Fluttershy's humble little home to get some rest.
Scout stared into the barrel of the grenade launcher. He slapped it aside just in time as the grenade flew out the barrel and bounced off the dirt. Demoman and Scout were both caught in the explosion. Scout flew a good 15 feet away as he struggled to get up. Scout got up and staggered. he was staggering, but he was up. Scout saw Demoman a few feet away. Grenade launcher by his side.
"Oh, I'm goin' to liquefy ya..."
Demoman charged and bashed Scout with a shield. Scout pulled himself together and took out his trusty bat. He hit it over Demoman's head so hard that the bat had a dent in it. He hit again and the bat almost broke.
But Demoman shook it off and bashed Scout with his shield again. Scout flew back and landed on the cold hard unforgiving dirt. Demoman had his grenade launcher at the ready.
"Any last words laddie?"
Scout took out a ball and threw it towards Demoman. The ball went in the barrel of Demoman's grenade launcher. Demoman didn't notice this and pulled the trigger. In a few seconds, Demoman blew up and was gone. Scout breathed a sigh of relief. He relaxed and fell flat on the floor. He couldn't fly anymore. He was tired, he had burn marks all over him, that and a bit of internal bleeding.
Scout managed to get up and fly. He couldn't fly for long though, so he crashed through Rainbow's window, waking her up.
"Heya, Skitz. Might need a bit of patching up."
Scout finished his last words before collapsing. Scout heard Rainbow's voice filled with worry and concern before passing out.
Scout woke up in the hospital. The gang stood around him. They wore a look of concern on their faces. Heavy had a blank look on his face. But Scout knew that he was actually quite relieved to see him alive. Scout tried to sit up and felt his whole body turn into Jell-O.
"What the hell was that crap?"
Scout tried again and failed again. He sighed and gave up, he tried to lift his arms, but almost as soon as he tried, his arms fell back down again and pain jolted through his body. He tried his legs, they gave him the same result. Almost every part of his body was immobile.
Scout waited while the gang chatted. Moments later a doctor came in and told them all to go out. They left and the doctor gave Scout his injury report.
"Ok Scout, you have 234 broken bones, a couple of broken nerves, some burns, a concussion, a broken leg and a fractured wrist"
Scout's jaw dropped. He tried to talk but couldn't find the words.
"About, 3 to 4 years minimum."
Scout almost had a heart attack.
"C'mon doc do your unicorn magic! You can do that right? Just heal me up in a jiffy!"
"Unicorn magic only goes so far Mr Scout."
Scout sighed. He hoped that Heavy could help defend Ponyville from the reds. Almost immediately the doc was shot, Scout stared at his body for a while before hearing a familiar voice from somewhere outside.
"Standin' around like a bloody idiot!"
Heavy reached the home of Fluttershy. He was worried that Scout might not be able to walk again. Heavy slumped on the couch and tried to fall asleep.
Hours later, it was nightfall. Heavy was still sleeping, when suddenly he heard gun shots being fired. He woke up and tried to find the source of the noise. He looked all around the house, in the kitchen, in the closet, everywhere. Yet he could not find the source of the sound. He gave up and tried to sleep. Before he could, he heard that sound again. He decided to open the door to go get some fresh air. He was probably just delusional.
Heavy opened the door, he stepped out and walked along the path. Heavy knew this path like the back of his hand. He patrolled the area, looking for any signs of life. He saw a campfire in the open field that he had killed Pyro in. Heavy walked toward it and was greeted by a red pony with a hard hat, he was playing a guitar in front of a small campfire. A wrecked up cart was behind him. Sentries surrounded him left and right.
"Start prayin', boy!"
Sorry if chapters a bit shorter than usual, kinda busy so don't panic if I haven't posted a new chapter by tomorrow. In the mean time, feel free to go check out my other story "Who I Am". Keep the comments coming. You guys are hilarious.
Scout rolled off the bed and landed, a bullet hole appeared next to him. Scout panicked, he was basically just a pile of Jell-O. What the hell could he do against sniper? He couldn't even lift an arm.
"If only Medic were here."
Scout scanned his surroundings and found nothing he could use to his advantage. He was a sitting duck. Sniper shot a bullet merely inches away from Scout's face. Scout sat and waited, he knew help wasn't coming. So he waited to die. After moments of waiting Sniper still hadn't got a shot in.
Scout did a facehoof and sighed. Scout decided to take a nap, hoping Sniper would kill him eventually. Scout tried to find ways to pass the time like doing absolutely nothing.
Eventually, somepony kicked the door open, Scout couldn't see who it was since his body was practically boneless. He felt his bones mend and heal on their own, his burns faded, scars disappeared, Scout was up and felt better than ever. He turned to find Medic standing there with his medigun.
"Alright, I feel good!"
An Ubercharged Scout leaped out the window and charged towards Sniper.
Heavy ran for his life as the sentries shot at him. He weaved in and out of trees, dodging bullets. Heavy eventually reached Fluttershy's cottage. The bullets probably couldn't breach the walls. The sentries tried to shoot but alas it was of no use. Heavy remained in the cottage for the whole night. Not daring to even look out the window.
Fluttershy found Heavy asleep behind the couch. She giggled and nudged him. Heavy woke up and instantly had a panic attack. He kept muttering something about sentries.
"Where is Engineer!?"
Fluttershy was scared too, she hadn't seen Heavy like this since a long time. Heavy sat there muttering a few prayers when all of a sudden he heard a knife stab and the sentries being destroyed.
"I murdered your toys as well!"
Chapter might seem a little lame and anti-climatic but i'm running out of stuff to write here, i'm saving the Mann vs Machine for the sequel.
Scout felt good, he was invincible. Sniper shot at him, he may as well have been shooting a steel wall. Scout's icy blue eyes were now pure blue. There were no pupils, just shining blue. Sniper panicked and ran, too late. A well placed shot with the Scattergun sends him flying. Sniper was wounded, as he crawled away, various bullet holes in him, Scout took out his now repaired bat. He prepared, swung and Sniper's body went limp. Scout lost his Ubercharge moments later. He walked back to the hospital. leaped through the window and back into his room.
Medic was still standing there, a glimmer in his eyes. Scout gave him a high five as they celebrated. A doctor walked in and gasped. Not at the limp body of the doctor, but at Scout. He wasn't supposed to be out off his bed, much less jumping around the room.
The doctor was soon medically treated. Scout was discharged and Medic followed close behind.
"So doc, what's up with the reds?"
"The Fräuleins found a way to get here. They need something to give them an edge against us."
"Saxton ain't gonna like this."
Scout shrugged and continued walking. He wanted to go back to his home to get some rest. But first, he needed to grab a quick bite.
Heavy stepped outside expecting sentries to blast him to bits. Instead he was greeted by Spy. Heavy hugs him and almost snaps him like a twig. He and Spy go out to meet with Scout.
Upon reaching the cafe that they usually met up in. They discussed about what they were going to do. About the reds mostly, and why they were here, what they wanted. You know. The usual.
"So, who else is coming?"
"No one. The Fräuleins were too stubborn."
"So, what do we do now?"
Medic had a kind of evil look on his face.
"All I can tell you about this next procedure is that it will be… excruciating!"
Scout nodded in agreement and they parted ways. They agreed to meet up here again tommorow. Scout flew back home and found a letter on his doorstep. Scout ripped open the envelope and found only two words inside. Sure it was only two words but they shook him.
The reds were coming. And Scout knew it. The next morning Scout put on his gear as fast as he could and ran for the cafe. Spy and Medic were already there. Only Heavy had not arrived yet. Scout sat down and drummed the table with his fingers. They waited for Heavy to arrive. They discussed about the letter and basically panicked. They had only four members, but it should have been enough.
They decided that they should be on high alert at all times, they parted ways once more. They had all been assigned tasks. Scout's tasks was to be their eye in the sky, Medic was, well the medic. Heavy would patrol the woods while Spy would patrol the streets.
Scout took off and almost immediately saw ponies in the distance. They didn't look friendly at all. Scout panicked and tried to find the team, he went to Spy first be cause he knew that Spy was calm and collected no matter what the situation.
He was wrong.
Scout found Spy and in a matter of seconds they were mumbling and panicking like mad men.
"WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO?"
Scout and Spy ran to go assemble the team. Soon they were all at the outskirts of Ponyville. Ready to do combat. Scout took his bat out and was ready to do damage. Heavy didn't need anything but his fist. Spy took his butterfly knife out and opened it with impressive skill. Medic had a bonesaw and his medigun at the ready.
Soon, the RED team were closing in on Ponyville. The BLU team charged. They were both almost the same. The RED team had Demoman, Sniper, Pyro and Soldier. The BLU team had Scout, Heavy, Medic and Spy.
They met at the town hall and chaos ensued. The two teams waged war, Scout only remembered battling one enemy. Demoman. Armed with his Eyelander Demoman charged as the two dueled. Bat vs sword. They both had decent speed, Scout was faster but Demoman was definitely much more capable of taking more damage.
Scout battled like he never fought before. He did a pretty good job in playing offensive and not too bad when it came to defensive. Scout couldn't use his Scattergun now. Too close ranged. Then Demoman pulled out his Stickybomb Launcher. He shot it and it caught Scout square in the chest.
"Imagine if I hadn't been drunk."
Scout panicked for a while then made a plan. He ran towards Demoman and as soon as Demoman detonated it, Scout had already tackled Demoman. Demoman looked in surprised, but before he could react the bomb detonated.
The both of them blew up, remains scattered all around. The BLU team had won. But at what cost? They stopped celebrating and headed towards the enormous crater that had been caused.
The funeral took place a week after the so called war, it was a rainy day which wasn't usual. The weather ponies would've cleared the skies. But they decided rain was the way to go. They had cleaned up the town and were now holding the funeral. The BLU team looked on in depression. Thought they did not shed a tear, everypony knew that they were greiving over their lost comrade. He had fought valiantly, he had slain many foes, but his time had come. But he had not gone down unnoticed. He had done a fine batch of good deeds during his time here.
They lowered the casket and parted ways. The rain continued to pour down on them as they headed back for their homes.
Don't panic. The next chapter will be out soon.
Huge thanks to Zman537 for the chapter name. The sequel will be based on the Mann vs Machine update. But don't expect it to come out so soon.
Rainbow Dash flew back to her home. Depressed about the loss. She dragged herself through the room. She had pestered Medic to see if he could have done anything. He said he would try but there would be no guarantees.
Then, Scout hopped in through the window.
"You missed the funeral."
"I'm sorry. But I had other places to be other than my bat's funeral."
Rainbow and Scout chuckled. Having a funeral for a broken baseball bat was pretty pathetic. But they needed something to lighten up the mood. A gag of some sort. And holding a funeral for an inanimate object seemed like the best way to go.
Scout and Rainbow's eyes met, they couldn't help but blush. It had been almost half a year since they first met. Scout remembered the moments they had shared. The two ponies locked eyes again. This time they didn't pull away.
"So, you doing anything tonight?"
"Skitz, you don't have to wait that long."
A grin appeared on Scout's face. His whole life was ahead of him and he had a gorgeous mare to spend it with. What's not to like?
BWAHAHAHA! You thought I was gonna kill off Scout didn't you? Oh god that was good. So, anyways this is just a short epilogue to sum up the story. Expect a sequel to come out sometime in November.
Thanks so much for your support guys. As you know I am in production of a sequel. I have already written a short prologue and the first chapter. I will continue writing, but don't expect me to update that frequently anymore.
I want to thank batran for suggesting the Mann vs Machine idea. And also I would like to praise Zman537 for his outstanding story "A Feline's Point Of View". Feel free to check it out. And Zman if you're reading this, Keep up the good work.
So, that's about it. I guess. Go check out the sequel if you want, don't know how long moderation will take though. You can find it in my stories bla bla bla you know how we do it here don't you? Okey dokey lokey!
