Rainbow Dash flew down to the three ponies that had just left the company of the less then appealing scientist Bunsen Burner. “What took you guys so long? I was starting to run out of maneuvers, and I have a pretty big playbook!”
Pinkie Pie walked over; the bounce that was usually in her step was gone, her hair was deflated a little, and she was sweating profusely. “I’m tired. Partying isn’t as much fun when you have to do it for a long time, or when you have to do it. Did you find Adam?”
“Yep! Mission accomplished!” Applejack exclaimed as she began to gallop away, the other five closely behind her.
“The sooner we get Adam out of Bunsen Burner’s hooves, the better.” Twilight said.
“The brute!” Rarity interjected, “What has he done to him?”
“Nothing major yet, it seems. I think that was mainly for our sakes; like he was planning for us to come to him.”
“Do you think he did?” Fluttershy questioned.
“He seems the type.”
Fluttershy nodded, “Yeah, the scary, not really want to get on his bad side kind of type.”
Rainbow Dash looked over to Twilight,“So now we just tell Ditzy Doo that we did it, so the Doctor can save him?”
“I guess so.” Rarity piped in, “Oh by the way, if we need to storm the castle, I know when the guards all change their shifts!”
“Really? Great! How’d you find that out?”
“A true lady is just as good as any diplomat,” Rarity cantered with her eyes closed and nose to the air to extenuate her classiness.
“What the hay does tha' mean?” Applejack asked impatiently.
“It means while you three were being super-duper spies on the inside, Rarity was being a super spy out here promising all the guards a date!” Pinkie Pie exclaimed.
They reached the gates of Canterlot at high noon, and just as planned, Ditzy Doo was there with her mail satchel.
“We did it,” Rainbow Dash said as she came to a landing stop in front of the mailmare.
“Now please help us to save Adam like you promised,” Fluttershy asserted.
“Follow me.” Ditzy Doo turned tail and ran down the mountain road that led away from Equestria’s capitol city, and the six girls followed. Just out of sight around the bend leading to the front gate stood the Tardis, the doors open and waiting.
As the girls rounded the bend, the Doctor was at the door, calling out to them. “Excellent! I knew you all could do it!” He stood aside as the seven ponies galloped into the remarkable machine. They stood back as the Doctor rushed to the console of the Tardis. “Now then, I fixed the position of the psychic paper, and we are ready!”
“So, how does this thing fly anyway?” Rainbow Dash hovered a little above the Doctor’s head.
“Well, normally the Tardis simply vanishes from one place and rematerializes in another, but I can’t do that right now; the Void is taking too much of her power, so we’re going to have to literally fly this box into the prison.”
He pressed several buttons on the console, and then pumped a handle on the side of the console several times. He pointed to Rarity, “Hold down that lever right in front of you!” Rarity complied, pressing down on the lever. “Now let go!” She let the lever return to its initial position. “Aaaand,” the Doctor pulled down a black handled crank, “we’re off!”
The central column of the Tardis began to slide in an up and down motion, which was accompanied by a mechanical wheezing sound. VroOOOm. VroOOOm. VroOOOm.
The six ponies paused, “Was something supposed to happen?” Pinkie Pie asked.
“Well, since you left the doors open, see for yourselves.”
The ponies whipped around and were shocked beyond belief: outside of the two doors, the landscape was thirty feet beneath them, and they were about to pass over two thoroughly surprised guards atop Canterlot Gate. They passed over several closely fit together houses, narrowly avoiding a spired building.
“Oh, gotta watch out for that!” The Doctor yelled as he laughed. “I haven’t had this much fun in years!”
“This is absolutely insane!” Twilight yelled above the noise of the wind while grabbing the nearest railing and holding on for dear life.
“I know! Isn’t it great?” the Doctor giddily replied back.
Ditzy Doo was hanging on to a nearby railing as well, while Rainbow Dash had become plastered to the farthest wall from the gale force wind outside, “I can’t feel my bones!”
Rarity screamed in fright as she gripped Pinkie Pie and Applejack, who was holding the three of them by her back legs alone. Pinkie Pie was laughing in delight. “This is better than any carnival ride ever!”
A yellow blur whizzed past, but the Doctor caught it with his outstretched leg; it was Fluttershy, scared nearly out of her mind. “We’re going to die!”
“Don’t be silly, you have me for a pilot!”
“I KNOW!!!” She now clung to his leg with a death grip.
The Doctor reached over to the monitor on the console which was charting their path to their destination. “Uh-oh.”
Rarity yelled, “You had better have not just said ‘uh-oh’!”
“Hang on, got to partially dematerialize then rematerialize. The power surge caused by the incomplete transition could short out her circuits, and we’ll lose more of the Void to the event collapse, but we’ll have to risk it, though the tachyon flow might not—“
"Speak regular Equestrian!” Applejack shouted.
The Doctor pulled another lever and cranked a wheel. He then turned to face the Tardis' doors, lifted his left arm, and snapped his fingers. The doors of the Tardis closed of their own accord. With that done, the Doctor strapped into the command chair and yelled, “BRACE FOR IMPACT!” Everyone screamed.
