Okay, first off, let me apologize to everyone for the intense waiting for a new chapter. I've been so bogged down with work and school that my writing motivation went and flew south for the winter early. Well, not early here since it already snowed at the beginning of the month, but I digress. In reward for your waiting, though, I've decided to give everyone a happy Thanksgiving by giving you, not one, but five new chapters! If I can find the proper amount of time, the next five chapters should all be released within the next few days. Hopefully still meeting my personal deadline. This will be a sad moment, as well though. For you see, these will be the last five chapters of the story. That's right, Thanksgiving Weekend 2014 will be the final days of Gravity of the Situation. I thank you all for staying with me on this adventure, but do not despair as Kat will return in future works. Expect the first of the five tomorrow. I thank you and have a wonderful holiday weekend.

I want to apologize to those of you anticipating the newest chapter of "From Equestria and Beyond", as there will be no new chapter this week. I had some stuff IRL that needed to be taken care of and as such had no time to finish writing this chapter. However, to make up for my mistake, you can look for Chapter 4 on Monday being released alongside chapter two of "Living My Life with Ponies!?". There will still be a new chapter next Friday, so do not despair.

Okay, remember me mentioning that Darkness Shade and I were working on something together? Well, the fruits of our labor is up to be seen! While the name is something... different, the story is pretty damn awesome! So go check out Baddest DJ on Two Turntables (I had nothing to do with the name) and give a look to the story that inspired it. Hope this fills your need for our heroes before Book Three comes out. Until next time!

Hey everypony! Well, this is going to be a fair sized post, it is! I am honestly in awe of all the question I received from you guys and it just tells me that I’m actually doing a good job at this writing thing. I admit, my ego has inflated a little. Okay, so how this will work is that I will go question by question in order of how I received them and grouped by the sender if they asked more than one, and will merge any similar questions. I am also going to take this chance to put out my future plans. So with further ado!
Q: When will Book Three of the Chaotic Harmony Trilogy be released?
A: Okay, this was hands down the most popular question asked and it really makes me proud of this series. To answer the question, I have planned for the first chapter to be released on the first Monday in October.
Q: What exactly drove you to make a trilogy? To DJ Sparkle: What is....your favourite song that isn't country? And have you any idea what awaits you? - Midnight Rain
A: Honestly there was no one thing that pushed me to this story. I found this site several months ago after just joining the fandom and found the stories to be much more compelling, especially the HiE fics. The idea for a trilogy, however… I haven’t got a clue. It just popped into my head when I was thinking of story ideas. I went from there.
Favorite non-country song? Hmm… Am I Wrong by Nico and Vinz comes to mind. Great beat, good message… wait. What awaits me?! What do you know! Is the author going to screw me over again! Tell me! Ugh… never mind, I guess I just have to wait. Am I the only story character who legitimately wants to pound his author’s face in sometimes?
Q: Is Fluttershy going to be okay and recover from the events that were spoiled by Auric? Did DJ celebrated Discord & Genie birthdays? Is there a Screwball as daughter of Discord in this world? - Kichi
A: All I can say is that there is a plan in place and we have not seen the last of her. Just have to wait and see.
Discord’s birthday is everyday! Or so he says. Genie hasn’t been seen in a while, as he rarely visits, but he will be making an appearance soon.
Book three will have many secrets and specials, that’s all I will say.
Q: On a scale of 'Yes' to 'I'm so Awesome', how much of Mallie's butt will be kicked by yours truly when we spar? - Darkness Shade
The answer to that is wait and see for our crossover! We’ll leave it to the fans to decide on the proper level
Q: For pinkie: If a Ford four-by-four pulls into the driveway and all the wheels fall off, how many pancakes does it take to make a dog house? - Discordedme
Q: What do you have planned for Book Three of the Chaotic Harmony Trilogy? Do you plan to finish From Equestria and Beyond as well? In the Chaotic Harmony Trilogy, how did you feel when you learned that you could Nyx for your story and is Nyx your favorite character throughout the story or is someone else your favorite? - Brony4Life2014
A: The big plan for the final book is to set in some new relations, the season four finale, adventure, and the final battle that decides the fate of Equestria.
Yes I do plan to finish it, I will say more in the planning section further down.
Oh, I was so happy that I could put in my favorite filly. Nyx is best pony simply because of her adorkableness!
She is my favorite pony overall, but I have to say my favorite pony in the story overall, actually hasn’t been revealed to the public yet. Expect him early in the next book!
Q: Is Raven from the game or is she someone you made up? Also, I've been thinking about making my own story like this and would like to know if you would be adverse to having my character visit? - Moon_Fire
A: Raven is indeed from the game as a rival/ally. I highly recommend Gravity Rush to everyone as it is definitely one of the Vita’s best.
While I am not against a crossover, only two more are allowed for the rest of “Gravity of the Situation”. That will make more sense when I finish the story. Kat’s world is closed, but she will be open to traveling to visit all of you out there in the wide, wide Multiverse!
Q: Will your LOHAV/H stories ever crossover with your Chaotic Harmony series? Will you ever do a Percy Jackson and Carter Kane 'The Kanes Chronicles' stories? Would you also ever possibly consider doing a Hellsing and Dresden Files series of stories? When will you continue with updating your owl story and is it canon to your other stories? Also what other types of stories are you planning to create in the future (i.e. Crossover, adventure, etc.....???) and what will they be about so that we can look forward for them (Memverse,etc)? - Slayer 10321
A: Ah, that’s a good question. Well, I don’t want to reveal too much, but be looking for a certain blue alicorn in Ben’s future. That’s all I will say on that.
Honestly, the idea intrigues me and ever since you brought it up, I have been thinking on it and have some plans in mind. I might put out a little something in the future, but it would only be a chapter or two before going on a hiatus.
I don’t really know anything about those two stories, Hellsing doesn't really interest me, but the Dresden Files certainly sounds fascinating. I will get back to you after I read some of them.
"The Story of an Owl" will resume later on, but it will eventually turn into a series of short stories telling ‘Owly’s’ side adventures during the show. I haven’t forgotten about it, don’t worry.
The only stories I have in the works once I have completed my current ones are a secret. I can’t say much more than that, but there is epicness in the works.
Q: To whomever you feel would provide the best answer to this silly question (as in, any character from any of your stories): What is the square root of an onion plus the result of rutabaga times pomegranate? And now a serious question for you: Who and/or what inspired you to start writing in the first place? - SuperWeegeeWorld
A: That’s easy, silly! The answer is a Pomabagion! Also, *Smack!* you should’ve had a V8!
What inspired me? Well, it would have to be many of the stories I found on this site. The only other writing I ever did before this was assignments for school so I’m glad I found a place where I could learn and better myself without (too much) hate. I would like to thank a few authors for inspiring my writing, though: Geodesic Dragon, Darkness Shade, Zaibatsu, Pen Stroke, and RealityCheck. Their stories inspired me to put out the greatness that you enjoy reading so much!
Q: Do you plan on using any Ben Ten villains in Ten Against One? - shagohad12
A: Yes, I do intend to have the villains from the series appear later on, but with a new spin on them, so to speak.
Q: What grade are you in (ie. high school, college, not in school right now)? When is the next chapter of the seventh element coming out? Have you ever read the darkness in our souls, the dusk guard: rises, or awakening? How many brothers and/or sisters do you have? What country or state do you live in? - Equinox_
A: I am a college junior aiming for a degree in secondary education with a focus on natural sciences.
“The Seventh Element” will first go through some intense editing and a few rewrites before resuming post “Living My Life with Ponies!?”. If you’re wondering, yes there will be an intersection for these two stories, but it won’t be until later on.
No, can’t say I have ever heard of those stories, but they certainly sound interesting.
I have a younger sister, that’s enough.
I am an unhappy resident of Nebraska. Why unhappy? You ever been here?! Nothing but corn! It gets boring after twenty years.
Woo, that was some turnout! I hope you all enjoyed your questions being answered and if you have any more, I’m always open to answering them as long as they are within reason. Thank you to all those who posted these questions or sent them via messages. Now for what’s coming in the near future:
My main focus is to still finish “Gravity of the Situation” so Kat is ready for the War of Understanding, whenever it’s supposed to start. As such, I hope, HOPE, that it will be finished by the end of the month. It’s a long shot, but if not, it should be completed sometime in October, with November being the very, very latest.
As I answered earlier, “Living My Life with Ponies!?” is too be expected out on the first Monday in October, so look out for that. As such, I have decided to release “From Equestria and Beyond” alongside it. Every Monday will be a new “LMLwP” and every Friday will be a new “FEaB”. Pixel’s story should finish up before we get too far into the third book, but there may be points where I have to skip a week for the third one. I will try to stay consistent with Beyond, but Living may have to be put off every now and then so I can keep up with Real Life. I will also be putting a link to the new story as a chapter update in "My New Life", so look for the highly anticipated third book on the Sixth of October (October 06, 2014)!
Ten Against One will be updated every now and then still, and it seems a lot of others want to do crossovers with my new hero, so a lot of fun in the future. While there is a plot in place, I think if I do it more like the series, where we have fun chapters in between the main plot, it will be a better story. For those wondering on when Ben will reunited with his sisters, if you will recall in the Umbra chapter, Ben will make himself known on Nightmare Night. To give you a proper idea on when that will be, the current month in that book is July, with Nightmare Night taking its usually place in October.
“The Story of an Owl”, “The Seventh Element”, and “A Brand New Journey” will stay on indefinite hiatus, but they have not been forgotten. I will never abandon any of my works, but it will take some time. Please just be patient with me if you are fans of these stories.
And now for my favorite news! For those that haven’t heard, Darkness Shade and I have been working on a special crossover story between “Just Horsing Around” and “My New Life with Ponies!?”!! It’s coming out amazing and I can’t wait for all of you to read it. We don’t currently have a release date, but I promise that fans of both stories will not be disappointed in the slightest.
Again, thank you to all those who asked me questions, and I will see you all in the great land of pony fiction!
"Ugh! Where am I?" asks Equestria’s one and only human, having woken up in a strange room. DJ blinks his eyes several times in an attempt to stay awake. He felt like he just downed a six pack of Mountain Dew and had a full bag of Doritos to go with it. Man, Pinkie’s cooking really packs a sugar crash punch. DJ then rolls over, hopefully to find out where he was, only to see a familiar purple dragon staring right back at him. Engage screaming in 3...2...1..."AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!" Their double scream must have awoken the other occupants of the house as the sound of two sets of hooves were heard pounding down the stairs in a flash.
"WHAT? What is going on? Who is screaming?" asked the purple alicorn from the stairs.
"Twilight, there's a human on our couch!" yelled the young dragon.
"Oh! Is that what this about? Well, Spike this is our new house guest, his name is DJ. He comes from a different then the world we visited. He also seems to know a lot about Equestria," Twilight Sparkle explains to her assistant.
"What's happenin' Spike?” says DJ with a goofy grin. “As Twilight said, the name's DJ and it is an honor to meet Twilight's Number One Assistant. I hope we can become buds." Spike just gave him a suspicious look, something DJ has gotten used to in the past twenty-four hours.
"Oookay, but I got my eyes on you."
"I wouldn't expect anything less. Morning Twilight, Nyx, sleep well?"
"Yeah, I loved your songs last night, Mr. DJ." Well ain't she just the cutest thing in the morning. Honestly, DJ had no idea how those ponies in the story could be so mean to this perfect little filly. Well, buck them, he figured. They don't deserve to be around such an amazing pony as far as DJ was concerned; that's the truth.
"No need for formalities, little one. Just call me DJ, your awesome new house mate! Thanks, though. To be honest that was the first time I ever did that," he said as he rose from his position to where he was sitting on the couch instead of laying down.
Twilight looked at him questioningly. "What do you mean?"
"I mean that was the first time I ever played an instrument and sang in front of a crowd. Thank you Genie! Last night rocked, but for some reason, my memories are a little fudged. What's up with that?" DJ wasn’t kidding, everything from the previous night seemed to be one big blur in his mind.
"Oh, that is probably the side effects of your drinking contest last night," Twilight says oh so matter of factly.
"Wait! Time out! WHAT?!" DJ was visibly shocked. He DID NOT remember drinking alcohol last night. He was still underage! (In America, anyway)
"Yes, don't you remember drinking all that cider? I am still surprised that you beat Applejack in a drinking contest! Thirty drinks! Wow! I mean you had drank so much before then, even that big glass you had before going on stage."
"THAT was alcohol? I could have sworn I was drinking soda!" Sure as Tartarus tasted like it!
"You know, a carbonated drink? That is exactly what it tasted and felt like I was drinking. Are you screwing with me? I mean, I don't have any of the common signs of a hangover. No headache, my eyes don't feel sore. Just feels like I went through a massive sugar crash," said DJ checking his face in a nearby mirror.
Twilight looked both surprised and intrigued. "Are you sure? I mean that stuff was pretty strong. It was 0.2% proof! You should be plenty hung over."
"0.2%? Wow, that is pretty weak. Back on Earth, the common proof was around 4.0-5.0% alcohol. Then again, I wouldn't exactly know since I have never had a drop of the stuff in my life." Okay, so he’s has had a few drops, but that stuff was disgusting to him. No smoking, no drinking, I want to live as long as possible, thank you very much.
"5%!! That could kill anypony who drank that! You humans must have a really strong alcohol tolerance. Fascinating!" She was already taking notes! Now that is devotion! I can respect that.
"Yeah, I guess. What a weird way to start drinking. So what's on the schedule for today, guys? Whatever today is?" he asked in an attempt to figure out what time of the year it was.
"Today is Saturday, August 3! And today, after breakfast, we were planning on giving you a tour of the town,” Twilight answered with a smile.
"August! Whoa, freaky.” DJ looked over and saw Twilight staring at him in confusion. “Don’t worry about it Twilight. Not something of importance.”
It was January when DJ left home, so he was trying to determine whether he jumped forward, or backwards. Either way, it didn't really matter. DJ really did not want to talk about time-travel. Just thinking about all that stuff was enough to give him a headache talking about it. Paradoxes, parallels, and all that crap. YEESH!
She looked a little down about that, but respected his decision. They had a lovely breakfast of pancakes and sides, prepared by Spike of course, but then the subject DJ really dreaded came up when he tried to push away the side of grass without the others noticing. "You really should eat your grass DJ. It's really good!" encouraged Twilight.
"Yeah, it may not be my favorite, but it is really tasty," said Nyx trying to help her mother.
"Uh, yeah. I was really hoping this wouldn't come up for a while," DJ said with a look of uncertainty.
"And what is that? Can you not eat it?" asked Twilight, who had her notes ready underneath the table. Twilight will always be Twilight, of course.
"Exactly, Humans are unable to consume grasses like hay, oats, and well...grass. It doesn't work well with our digestive system."
"Oh! Well, then what do humans eat? I didn't really get a chance to do studying at Canterlot High, so I am really curious." Man, who could resist that beautiful, longing-- STOP THAT DJ! You only just met, and you are terrible with women. Just keep those in your perverted dreams, Romeo.
DJ shook himself out of his thoughts and then went right for the truth. "Well, um.....humans are omnivores."
"What is that?" Now even Nyx was curious. Oh, man, please, please don't let this end badly.
"You know about herbivores and carnivores?" DJ received a few nods in response. "Well, an omnivore is both. Humans can eat a majority of fruits and vegetables, but we must also balance it with protean that we get majorly from, well, meat." DJ tried to sink into my chair out of shame, because he loved meat. Beef, pork, and chicken; mmm mmm good! DJ knew that he would have to give them up coming here, but it was still apart of who he was. "Please don't hate me for that?"
Their faces were in equal shock. Their new friend was a meat eater! "Why would we hate you?" Oh, Nyx please don't make this any harder. He really didn't want his favorite pony to hate him. "You don't eat ponies do you?" His saving grace!
"I would never eat a pony!! In fact, where I come from it is practically illegal to eat horses and ponies. They may not be intelligent on my world, but they are revered and well cared for due to their grace, beauty, and practicality. Plus, as I told you yesterday, I could never bring myself to eat you and that extends to everypony. As long as I am here, I well ready to go full vegetarian; if it means I can live here, I am willing to do anything."
Twilight smiled at me warmly. "In that case, I am sure everything will be fine. It looks like everypony is done eating, ready to go into to town?"
"Oh, yeah! I'm pumped." He got weird expressions in return. "It means I am excited, it's a human thing," he shrugged. That seemed to be a reasonable enough response for them. DJ walked out the front door, took in a deep breath, and was it was forced from his lungs as he was suddenly tackled to the ground from the right. Twilight and Nyx yelped when they saw their friend go down. DJ tried to stand, but something was weighing him down. He shook off the grogginess and looked at his assailant. It was a unicorn with a mint green coat and green-silver hair. No way! The stories were true!
"LYRA!!! What do you think you are doing to my friend!?" Twilight looked livid. Nyx looked on the verge of tears seeing her friend thrown down. DJ had never seen Twilight angry in person, but he figured she looked almost ready to rage shift and that was something he wanted to avoid at all costs. Lyra didn't even bother to acknowledge her; her eyes were locked on DJ, a big almost-manic grin plastered on her muzzle.
"Hello, Lyra," DJ said knowing exactly how to diffuse this situation. "It's a pleasure to meet you, excited to meet your first human, huh?" He chuckled a little. This was going to be fun. "Twilight already has plenty of notes on me if you want to ask her," he said motioning to towards Twilight with his head.
"You know who I am?" She looked utterly surprised. "You even know that I am into humans?"
"Yeah, you are a common character where I come from. Twilight can explain that to you later.” DJ really didn’t want to go into that again right now. “Hey, I got an idea! Why don't you come with us? Twilight was going into town to show me around. Can she Twi?”
Twilight broke out of her angry trance. "You want this crazy mare to come with us?" Twilight had really taken offense to Lyra’s actions towards her new study project. Of course DJ would probably not like being called that, so she kept that part quiet.
"Don't be like that Twi, she's just curious. Not all of us have the same kind of self-control that you do. Waddaya say Lyra? Want to hang out with a human for the day?" Her widening smile and beaming eyes were all the answer he needed. "Then it's settled! Come on, Spike, we gotta go!"
"Twilight said I need to stay here and look after the library," replied a depressed looking Spike. Being stuck in the library while his friends get hang out with a new friend just didn’t seem fair to him. Not to DJ either.
"Well, that won't do. Come on Twi, let the little dude come with. He shouldn't be stuck inside on a day like this," DJ said, arms wide to put an emphasis on it. It really was a nice summer day; Celestia’s sun was shining brightly, there was a small breeze in the air, and he could hear the birds chirping and children playing in the nearby park. "Spike can get to learn about his awesome new buddy and I can get to know an amazing little dragon." Spike look at the human with awe and glee.
“B-But the library! What if somepony needs a book?" Twilight looked a little frantic.
"Then they can come back tomorrow! No pony gets left behind! Not on my watch." ‘Never leave a man behind’; DJ lived by that code. Thankfully, Twilight relented not long after and their merry group was on their way. "So, where are we going first?"
"I have it all planned out!" Why does that not surprise me? "First, we go see Rarity at Carousel Boutique, then Pinkie over at Sugar Cube Corner, we'll probably run into Rainbow Dash after that. Then it's off to see Fluttershy and a trip back to Sweet Apple Acres and visit with the Apples!" Twilight recanted with a smile.
"Wow, you really do think everything don't ya? Haha, this gonna be great." Everything went off without a hitch. Lyra was really curious about humans. DJ decided to be upbeat about it, didn't want to ruin her dreams. He did avoid all personal questions, though. He was pretty sure Twilight noticed because she always looked at him when he diverted those questions. That was until DJ got a question from that very mare.
"How old are you, anyway?" DJ was a little dumbfounded. Then again, it's not like they know the differences between humans of different ages. He decided to play with this a little.
"How old do you think I am?" he asked. DJ was curious to see how close they could get. He noticed Lyra had her hoof to her chin in thought as well, probably thinking him over and trying to guess his age as well.
"Well, based on how you act and how you seem to carry yourself,” started Twilight. “I would reason that you are about maybe 25 years old." DJ was taken aback, mentally that is; he didn’t let his face show his shock. Twenty-five? DJ guessed that these ponies must have a similar age range to humans after all. People always told him seemed older than he was, mostly because DJ hung out with people who acted like they were thirteen when they were actually older than he was! DJ turned to Lyra, giving her a chance to respond.
She shrugged. “That would be my guess, too.”
"Huh, well girls, how old are you? It's only fair." Let’s see how old these mares really are.
"I suppose so. Fine. I'm nineteen if you so care,” she said with a little spite. Note to self: never try this again. Mares do not like being asked how old they are. Under any circumstances!
“I actually a year older than Twilight, so I’m twenty,” responded Lyra.
“I may look small, but I’m fifteen,” said Spike who DJ realized was walking right by his leg. Little dude’s got stealth, I’ll give him that.
“What about Nyx?”
“Since she was created by magic, as you know, her age is technically unknown. Nyx has the appearance of the being a filly the same age as the rest of her friends, so that is how we go by it,” explained Twilight.
“I’m nine!” exclaimed the little filly. DJ’s smile brightened with her enthusiasm.
"Huh, wow. Interesting. And there’s that kind of age gap between the two of us, eh Twi? Fascinating."
"Just the fact that I am the same age as a pony princess. Simply fascinating, wouldn't you say?" DJ said with a smug grin. Twilight and Lyra were visibly shocked.
"B-but you said---" Twilight started before she was interrupted.
"Ah, ah. I neither confirmed nor denied your suspicions. We are indeed the same age, Twi! I am a nineteen year old human." DJ watched as Twilight tried to process that tidbit, and it wasn’t going successfully. Lyra took it a little better, but was more focused on getting away from Twilight before the princess blew a gasket.
"That wasn't very nice DJ," said Nyx shaking her head.
"Sorry, Nyx. Just felt like pulling a prank on your mother. I think it worked. Others back home always believed I was older than I was. Just wise beyond my years, I suppose." Twilight was still both shocked and peeved at what just transpired between them, so the rest of the walk to the fashion mare's home was silent and uneventful as not even Lyra was willing to speak when Twilight was like this.
Rarity's Boutique was really hectic. She had designs and fabrics all over the place, but she dropped everything when they came in. Sweetie Belle was home too, but she was on her way to the Cutie Mark Crusader Club House. So Nyx took off and joined her, with Twilight yelling that they would pick her up after they were done at Sweet Apple Acres.
Back to Rarity. She practically begged DJ to let her get his measurements. She said that she wanted to be the first to design something for Equestria's newest creature. He let her and was surprised at how thorough she was, but he had to stop her before she got too personal. DJ promised to come back at a later date for a more perfect measurement. She accepted, but was a little confused. After they left, the Twilight and Lyra asked about it, but he told them that it was a personal human thing and asked them to just drop it. Not going naked in front of three female ponies and a dragon, thank you very much.
Speaking of dragons, DJ and Spike were really hitting it off. The two of them promised to have some guy time at a later date so that they could get into some real trouble, err, deep conversation. Seemed like it would be fun to both of them, though Twilight was very suspicious. It was surprisingly uneventful at Sugar Cube Corner when they arrived. Pinkie seemed had gotten all of the party out her last night and was just content with helping them get some sweets for the road. They waved goodbye to the pink pony, DJ promising to be on time for his lessons. DJ was excited beyond belief to learn Pinkie Physics. I could do so much with those! They did in fact run into Rainbow on the way to Fluttershy’s. How does Twilight do that? Rainbow was going on about her new trick, but could only talk for a few minutes before flying off since she had to get back to work.
After that, DJ got Lyra to tell him a little about herself. Turns out Lyra was indeed in a relationship with her roommate Bon Bon. Lyra wouldn’t talk much about it, but DJ could tell there was something deep between them. Lyra worked in Bon Bon’s sweet shop as well, serving as either the counter mare or a taste tester. She really enjoyed the latter job, maybe a little too much if her constant drooling was anything to go by. She also told him that she had been fascinated by ancient myths of the human race, but everypony told her that they were old mare’s tales and to stop with this ‘obsession’. DJ could tell it wasn’t an obsession, otherwise Lyra would be acting much more forceful towards him for answers. Nah, it was just a keen interest of hers that others misunderstood because of her dedication for it. Love and tolerate ponies. Love and tolerate. The group arrived at Fluttershy’s a few minutes later.
Fluttershy was still a little scared of DJ, but after helping her care for her animals for a while, she seemed much more comfortable around him. Flutters really was sweet, but they had to keep with Twilight's schedule and off we went to AJ's not even after an hour. Lyra had to go home to Bon Bon, along the way, though, so Twilight, DJ, and Spike said their farewells. Not before DJ had to promise to give her a study session with, though. After, they were once again on their way to Sweet Apple Acres. They found Applejack bucking some trees not too far from the entrance, but she stopped when she saw the three of them. She was appalled that DJ said her famous cider was actually a soft-drink where he came from.
"No wonder you were able to drink so much! Darn, bested by a human and my cider nothing but carbonation! Insult to injury, right there," she declared. DJ really felt bad for her, so he promised to use my first pay from the library to buy a bundle of her apples as recompense. He was in love with that fruit! He was even tempted to just pick them from the trees, but DJ wasn't gonna go behind the farm mare's back like that. DJ don’t role like that!
They ran into Big Macintosh on the way to get the girls from their clubhouse. He regarded the human with suspicion, but softened a little once they talked a little. And he means LITTLE. The dude barely said anything beyond ‘eyup’ and ‘nope’. DJ could tell, though, that there was so much more to the stallion and he planned on coming back to talk to him at a later date. We'll see if I can get the big guy to open up. They picked up Nyx not long after and headed home as Celestia's Sun was already setting. The foursome bade farewell to the Apples and the little fillies and arrived back at the library just in time for dinner. After dinner, they all decided to settle in for bed. Twilight sent Nyx and Spike off first, but stopped DJ as he headed for his new basement bedroom.
"So DJ? What do you think of Ponyville?" She had an eagerness in her voice meaning that she wanted an honest opinion on her home. DJ was eager to reply.
"I don't like it." She frowned and lowered her head a little. "I LOVE IT!" Twilight jumped at his exclamation, but beamed when she realized what he had said.
"Oh yeah, this gonna be a great home. I am living a dream! I get to live in world without war and fear, I got a new home and a job in one day (thanks for the assistant position by the way), and I have great friends. Discord, Genie, your friends, Spike! Even you and Nyx, my two favorite ponies and I get to be a part of your home!" She blushed a little at that. She blushes a lot around me. Why does she do that? "I just know that this where I was meant to be. Even carrying these weapons, you all accepted me. I feel...I feel like this could really be a home for me." He was getting emotional again! But, around Twi, it just came naturally. No idea why, though.
"Great, but why wouldn't you answer those questions about your life back on Earth? It was really weird."
DJ turned away for a moment to think on her question. It was certainly reasonable, but he didn’t know if he could really tell her. In the end, he just couldn’t bring himself to be dishonest. "I can't lie to you Twi, it's not in me. I don't really want to talk about, but as I have said, I don't really have any friends back home. Mostly just those I hung out with at school and just a couple of close friends. Other than that, I was mostly at home, my nose in a book."
Twilight was tearing a little, but chuckled a little about the book remark. "I wasn't really close to my family, even though I cared about them. We just never really connected, you know. We just didn't have the same kind of personalities. I have been against my world for as long as I can remember and they never understood that. So I tried to hide it from them, so I didn't hurt them. They have really strong opinions on things and it’s hard to change minds like theirs. It wasn't hard choice when Genie came to me. I completely understood what he was offering; a place where I didn't have to worry about losing my loved ones in the most terrible of ways. I don't regret my choice in the least, but I will miss them. They were my family after all."
Twilight was pretty close to tears. "I don't know how to respond to that DJ, that's pretty heart breaking. But, I am glad you are here. You seem like a very gentle soul and I am willing to help you every step of the way." Her voice and eyes spoke volumes more than the actual words she spoke. She was completely sincere. DJ couldn't help it, so he brought her in close for a hug.
"Thank you, Twilight. This means so much to me and I promise to repay in any way I can. I promise that so long as I am here, I won't let you or your family come to any harm. Cross my heart, hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye." DJ now had a few tears in his eyes. He wasn't crying, though, it was liquid happiness. LIQUID HAPPINESS, I TELLS YOU! They both went to their separate beds after that, but DJ stayed up a little while longer and just looked out a window to his first perfect night. With the stars and moon as his only witness, DJ swore on his very soul that this land would become his new home; be hell or high water, as they say.
