After the pink pony pushed me through the television, the world felt like it was spinning around me, and there were all sorts of colors flashing around as well. There was a loud whooshing sound in my ears, and I felt like I was free falling. I just closed my eyes after a bit, waiting for the spinning to stop.
This all felt like some kind of really messed up dream. I was scared of what was going to happen when I opened my eyes again. Will I wake up, and see that this really is all just some tripped out nightmare? I mean it has to be. How can a cartoon horse talk to me through a DVD, how can she jump into the human world, and how can she push me back through the TV? It just can't be real. Can it?
In my thinking, I didn't notice that the spinning and falling feeling had stopped. The whooshing sound was gone too. Now all I could hear was.....well I actually couldn't hear anything. My eyes were still shut tight. I seriously didn't know what to expect when I opened them. As much as I'd like to believe that this is a dream, it feels way too real. It felt like I was laying on grass. Wherever I may be, it felt like it was at least safe now. I guess it's now or never then. Time to open my eyes.
The first thing I could see was a big blue sky. Perfectly normal looking actually. Just a nice blue sky, with some clouds scattered throughout it. There was also a big bright sun. I could feel the warmth from it, and it felt pretty nice. Something about the sky seemed a bit off though. Everything seemed a bit too......colorful. And after I lifted my head up, it made sense as to why.
At first glance, everything around me looked normal. I saw some trees, some birds, and indeed grass all around me. But the thing about everything was that it all looked too colorful and bright. Like something out of a cartoon.........oh crap.
Before that pink pony had jumped into Axel's room, she asked me if I wanted to come into her world. Then she pushed me through the TV. Now it was pretty clear to me where I'm at. I'm in the world of My Little Pony.
A yelled as loud as I possibly could, sending all the nearby animals scattering away from my location. Not like I care. I was not only stuck in the world of a cartoon, away from home, my friends, and family, but I was stuck in the world of a cartoon I despise. Being forced into here didn't make me hate it any less. This can't be happening to me. This can't be happening...
"Hey! There you are. I've been looking all over for you."
I jolted my head up to see the source of the voice. Even in this colorful cartoon world, it was someone actually pretty familiar to me. After all, not too long ago she had just pushed me through a freaking television. It was that pink pony. Pinkie Pie, if I remember correctly. She was happily skipping straight over to me, grinning from ear to ear. Considering my situation, seeing how happy she was to see me here ticked me off even more.
"Sorry about that, looks like I lost you on the way back through the fourth wall."
She flashed me a great big smile. All I could do is just look at her, dumbfounded by her words.
"Well I can see you're still pretty shocked, so let me be the first to welcome you to the great world of Equestria!"
She smiled at me even more. Naturally, all that it was accomplishing was making me angrier.
"So what do you think?"
"What do I think? WHAT DO I THINK? You just forced me into the world of a cartoon that I hate with a passion, and you're asking me WHAT I THINK ABOUT IT? I'm FURIOUS, that's what I think."
She was pretty taken back after I said all of that. She had a sad and surprised look on her face. Obviously she wasn't expecting me to react such a way, for whatever reason.
"Huh? But I see humans like you watching us all the time. I thought you guys loved watching us?"
"Oh you mean the bronies? Yeah, those guys do love watching you. Like my two idiotic friends. They wanted me to watch this terrible show, even though I've already tried to watch it before. They promised me that if I just watched the five episodes on their DVD, they wouldn't mention it any more, and there was no way I was going to pass up never hearing about this garbage again. Obviously I had made the worst mistake of my life, because now I've just been forced into this crappy excuse for a show by some stupid pink horse! Why did this have to happen to me? Why did-"
My voice gradually became quiet as Pinkie began to cry. Her eyes shimmered, oversaturated with tears, until finally, she burst into that classic cartoonish cry: lots of wailing, waterfalls of tears, the works. Even though I found it amusing to watch, at the same time I felt bad for making her cry.
"Hey, come on now, don't cry. Sorry about snapping like that, I'm just really shocked by everything that's going on right now. This isn't exactly normal for me."
She stopped crying but still looked quite sad when she looked at me.
"But you said you hate watching us."
"Well I'm not going to lie. No, I do not like this show. It just isn't my kind of thing. It all seems too girly. Yeah, there's millions of other guys back in my world that love this show, but no I don't really care for it myself."
She sighed and looked at the ground below her somberly.
"I can't believe that millions of your kind of people like watching us, and the one time that I finally bring one of them in here to see Equestria for themselves, it's somepony who doesn't like it."
That made me think. It really was quite the thought. There are probably millions of bronies in the human world that would give anything to get to spend time with these ponies, and the only time someone does get to see them, it's me. An anti-brony. As frustrating as it was to be forced into this world and away from home, that actually couldn't help but make me laugh.
"Ha, take that bronies! Maybe coming here isn't so bad after all."
Now Pinkie Pie was looking at me with her previous extremely happy smile again, which made me chuckle to myself.
"Sure. Just wait till I rub it in Axel and Brycen's faces that I got to come into the My Little Pony world. It'll be priceless."
"That sounds kind of mean don't you think? If they're your friends, why try to rub something in their faces? Unless it's cake of course. I mean, who DOESN'T like cake? Oooooh, or maybe some pie or cupcakes? No no wait, how about pudding? Everypony loves pudding, And what about-"
"Alright Pinkie, I get it."
"Well the point is, if they're your friends, why not try to make them smile instead? I love making my friends smile. I even made a song about it! Want to hear it?"
She started to look sad again so I had to quickly correct myself.
"I mean, I've already heard it actually. Brycen and Axel had me listen to it back home."
That brought the smile back to her face.
"Really? It's good to know that somepony appreciates my super duper singing."
She nudged me, referencing to the comment I made while watching the DVD to get attention in the first place.
"Yeah, those bronies really love all the songs. You can take my word on that. And anyway, it's not that I'm trying to be mean to make my friends unhappy, it's just that they kind of force their opinions about the show on me so much that it starts to annoys me sometimes. It'll be kind of fun making them jealous that I got to come here."
"Well alrighty then. If that's how it is, then I'll bet they'll be ultra mega jealous when they see that you got to be a pony too!"
That made my eyes grow wider than they ever have in my whole life.
"That's right silly! You did notice that you're a pony now didn't you?"
I looked down, and was horrified to see that what Pinkie Pie was telling me wasn't a joke. Back home I was around six feet tall, rather skinny, with a buzz cut. But when I looked down, instead of seeing my body, I saw fur. I had a dark brown coat for a body, and it was a little bit larger than Pinkie's body, probably because of the gender difference.
I then looked down at my feet, or at least where my feet used to be, to see two hooves in their place. I held out my hands to see that they too had been transformed into pony hooves. I'm a pony......time to freak out again.
"Holy freaking crap! How the hell am I a pony? How is this even possible?"
The hyperactive pink pony shrugged.
"Not really sure actually. I guess your body changes to the form of whatever kind of creatures live in the world you go to when you move throughout different dimensions."
"Well if that's true then how come you didn't turn into a human when you jumped into my world?"
She shrugged once again.
"Probably because the laws of physics and logic don't like me very much. I'm like an exception to their rules! But you get to be a pony now!"
"This is insane."
I thought about how my face must look like. I usually had regular green eyes and normal sized features as a human. But looking at Pinkie Pie, I knew my face had to look drastically different right now.
"Alright, I need to see my reflection so that I can see my face. Is there a lake or something nearby that I can look at?"
"Hold on, let me just go get you a mirror!"
Pinkie Pie rushed off in a quick pink blur. I had already lost sight of wherever she had just jolted off too. Suddenly, she then reappeared behind me, and held out a mirror in her hooves.
"Here you go!"
"What the- how the heck did you do that?"
"You just darted off to go get a mirror. How are you already back?"
"I didn't have to go far. I had a mirror stashed in a tree pretty close to here. I have mirrors stashed around all of Ponyville, in case of mirror related emergencies."
That sounded pretty ridiculous, but I had to remember that I'm in a cartoon world. No use in arguing with her. The point was, she had the mirror, so I should go ahead and get a good look at myself.
Looking into the mirror, the first thing I noticed was my new face. My eyes were huge in comparison to my human eyes. They were just as big as Pinkie's eyes, with green iris'. The color of the iris' were the same as they used to be, but as a cartoon pony, they were obviously now much larger. I had a short snout where my mouth, jaw, and nostrils were. I guess it looked somewhat normal when compared to the ponies of this world.
Then, I noticed my hair. Rather than having a buzz cut like I did back home, I had a short mane. It didn't go past my ears, and it was a little bit spiky. It was a dark blonde like my hair used to be as a human, but it was a more cartoony looking shade of blonde.
Finally, there was one more detail about my new appearance caught my attention most of all. Tucked down on my back were two wings. I didn't feel them on my back at first, but there they were, clear as day. I guess that made me a pegasus.
It was incredibly odd to look at my reflection and see myself as a pony, rather than a human. When I first opened my eyes here, I was so taken back by this cartoon world that I failed to notice my appearance, but now it was all that was on my mind. The weirdest thing to feel about it were the hooves. It's a drastically different feeling to have hooves instead of hands and feet. I had just been siting up this whole time, but now I should try to stand up and test my hooves.
I sat my front hooves down on the ground and pushed up to plant my back hooves on the ground as well. My back legs were pretty shaky, but I finally balanced myself and stood up regularly, or at least regular for a pony.
"Hey, not bad. You're a pretty quick learner, um...."
The pink pony suddenly gasped very loudly. It sounded like the gasp she did in the first episode on the DVD.
"Oh my gosh! I can't believe I forgot one of the most super duper important parts of meeting somepony new. I was so excited about bringing you into Equestria that I didn't ask you what your name was!"
"Oh, um, my name's Morgan."
"Well Morgan, I am Pinkie Pie, party pony extraordinaire, pastry chef, and friend to everypony in all of Ponyville!"
She put out her hoof as if asking for a hand shake, but that was obviously impossible to do with our hooves. I then remembered the brohoof thing that Axel and Brycen always did, and I decided that I should do that, so I lifted up one of my front hooves and extended it to touch Pinkie's.
"So I see that you're a pegasus Morgan. That's going to be so exciting. Just think, you're going to get to be able to fly!"
Now that actually did sound pretty awesome. It's not like flying was something I could possibly do back home. I immediately started to search for the muscles to control my wings. I flexed various muscles in my back until I finally flexed the one that made the right wing jolt up. I flexed a muscle on the other side of my back to make the other wing also lift up. As I tried flexing the muscles more, however, all it accomplished was making my wings move around in an awkward manner. I had no earthly idea how to work them correctly.
"Looks like these things will take some getting used to."
"That's alright! I know just the pegasus who can have you flying like a pro in no time. In fact, I think it's time that we got out of this field and went to Ponyville so you can meet everypony! And I do mean everypony. You can meet Twilight, and Dashie, and Fluttershy, and Applejack, and Rarity, and Spike, and the Cakes, and Lyra, and Bon Bon, and Derpy, and-"
"Ok Pinkie, I get it. I'll get to meet everyone."
She gave me a curious look.
"You mean everypony. You're not going to meet everyone, you're going to meet everypony."
"Do I really need to say it like that?"
"Oh yes sir! We speak differently here than you must back in your world."
"Alright so basically all I have to do is say everypony, somepony, nopony, etc instead of everyone, someone, and no one?"
"Yep yep yep!"
"Ugh, lame. But I can live with that."
"So you ready to go meet everypony now Morgan?"
She was looking at me very excitedly, obviously eager to introduce me to the ponies of this new world. I still didn't really like the situation I was in knowing my friends would probably be worrying about me soon when they return to see that I'm not in Axel's room anymore. I was going to need to find a way back home, and show them that I'm ok, but I'd have to worry about that later. Maybe one of the ponies that Pinkie Pie would introduce me to would know a way how to get me home.
"Yeah, I'm ready as I'll ever be."
"Okie Dokie Lokie!"
She turned and started skipping off towards the exit of the field. I followed her, awkwardly getting used to walking with hooves instead of legs, and slowly made my way to town with her. This world was going to be quite the experience.
