Equestria. Center-most nation of the largest continent on their planet. Populated by a majority of equine life-forms known as Ponies and ruled by the benevolent and just hooves of Princess Celestia and Luna, Princesses of the Sun and Moon respectively. Magic intertwines itself throughout the land and the six bearers of the Elements of Harmony help safeguard Equestria against would-be aggressors. However, a strange meteor strike containing a virulent substance quickly snuffs out the tranquility.
Samus Aran, Human (technically Human/Chozo hybrid) bounty hunter, clad in Chozo-designed battle armor known as her Varia Suit, ponders to herself as she stands by under Galactic Federation orders after the Aether Incident. A Phazon meteor strike is detected on a planet designated as VK109H, simply known as 'Equis.' She thus makes haste for the planet, lest the Space Pirates get there first.
What Samus believes will be another routine mission on a hellhole of a planet in disarray due to the spread of Phazon soon turns into a fight not just for her own life as normal, but for her own sanity, the planet in all its natural beauty, and the ponies that, dare she say, she may learn to call allies. On the way, Samus will not only discover new horrors, revelations, weaponry, and abilities, but maybe... just maybe, unlock something that she pushed away and has been denied for so long: Friendship.
At first I believed this story would appeal to a rather specific audience, and appeal to them it did... I just had no idea how many Metroid fans were on this site. Really, I was blown away haha. Anyway, I'm trying my very best to include enough background into the story to allow those who have had little to no exposure to the Metroid series to enjoy this story. For those who are very well acquainted with the series, please be aware that there were certain things that were not fully addressed in the series and as such, I put my own take on them, though I, of course, attempted to make said interpretations as believable as possible.
This takes place after Echoes. The events of Corruption will have not happened yet. In terms of MLP, consider everything up to and including the Crystal Empire. Princess Twilight does not exist here, etc.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but this plotline. All characters and references of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and the Metroid Series including but not limited to logos as well as text are property of Hasbro and Nintendo respectively.
So, with that out of the way, please enjoy the story! (Hopefully) :)
