Rainbow Dash Network In Equestria
The noble was quietly sitting in his carriage having no care for the world outside. And why should he? Nopony would try to get past the royal guards pulling his carriage and try to steal the package he was transporting. All that needs to be done is to get the package to Manehatten and give it to the next pony for the following leg. Orders were specifically given not to open the package.
‘Kind of blandish order, if you ask me’ thought the noble when he was given the order. ‘Already an easy task to begin with. Like i care for what’s in the package.’
He was in the carriage for about a hour and a half. Most of which he spent either in his thoughts or resting. He occasionally tried to talk to the royal guards, but as predicted they stayed silent.
‘Wonder what their lives are like outside of their jobs.’ the noble thought to himself.
In the middle of the thought a sudden jerk behind the carriage pushed the noble forward into the wall in front of him. He opened the window that allowed him to talk to the guards pulling the carriage.
“WHAT THE HAY WAS THAT?” He yelled. Before they could answer, two ropes suddenly hooked on both sides of the the front of the carriage and before the noble knew it, he was airborne, rising up from the ground. The carriage swayed as is it rose in the air. Eventually the ropes on the front released and the noble smacked into the window so hard, he went through it.
Holding on for dear life to the handles outside, the noble slowly pulled himself back into the carriage. When he did, he noticed a dark grey pegasus with a sky blue mohawk holding the package that the noble sworn to protect. But the pegasus wasn’t alone. A black cloaked figure stood the the right of the noble. The figure was on four legs, but had the build and size of a diamond dog.
“We’ll be taking this from you.” announced the figure.
“What are you?” the noble asked.
“Reckoning.” the figure answered. And just like that the grey pegasus exited the way he came and the figure followed. The noble stood there in awe of what just transpired in front of him. Eventually he lost sense of gravity, as if he was light as a feather. The noble looked out the shattered window and saw the ground closing in fast....
The castle was emptied for two reasons. One was the cover-up reason. To the cooks, maids, butlers, guards, the reason for the castle to vacated was that the royal sisters believed that they deserve time off for a bit, as thanks for their hard work. The second, in fact the real reason, is that Shining Armor and the princesses were planning on meeting the rest of the RDN ponies (or RDNonies) and figure out how they came into their world.
Grey Dragon was able to get out his bed and began to wonder around the castle. Without anyone, or anypony (whatever floats your boat) knowing about it, no less.
‘Man, I know castles are huge, but this one is enormous.’ the part dragon-part pony observed. He stood in the middle of one of the corridors that led to only a few of the countless rooms and passages within the castle.
“Don’t want to wander too far, otherwise, I would get lost in this place.” Dragon thought to himself. “Great another dead end. Guess I am running out of places to explore.”
Before he could go on, he noticed a yellowish pegasus holding a brown unicorn walk out of one of the rooms in front of him. With the two, was an orange pony with a cowboy hat.
“There! We’re finally here. Now, if you excuse me, I have a town to return to to.” said the cowboy-hat pony. It was clear that the trip here wasn’t pleasant at all. The two other ponies looked around the area they were standing, in awe of the beauty of the castle.
“Ah, you’re here.” a voice behind Grey Dragon said. He turned his head and saw Shining Armor, the origin of the voice.
“I’m guessing you got tired of the room you were in.” Shining Armor continued. “Anyway, we found more ponies like you.”
“What, half pony, half dragon?” Grey Dragon asked.
“Nonononono. We found more ponies that are from this ‘alternate reality’ you speak of. Not to mention they know what this ‘RDN’ is.”
“WAIT! There others?!” yelled the yellowish pegasus. Both Grey Dragon and Shining Armor turned to face the two other ponies in the room.
“Don’t think it is wise to yell.” mentioned the brown unicorn. “That’s the reason why you placed Braeburn in a sour mood.”
“You expect someone who just been teleported to an alternate reality that is in the form of a popular show to act calm?” the pegasus retorted. “Seriously, Elo?”
“Wait, you’re Elo?” asked Grey towards the unicorn.
“Yes.” the unicorn answered.
“You got teleported here too?” the pegasus asked.
“Yeah. And you are?”
‘Great. There’s more of them.’ Shining Armor thought to himself. “Well, since you two are part of this ‘RDN’, might as well come with me. And you too Grey Dragon.”
“You met Shining Armor?” Gunn mouthed to Grey Dragon.
“Yeah.” Grey Dragon mouthed back. The three newcomers came to a large door, which Shining Armor opened with his magic and inside was a large round table and two other ponies inside. One was a medium build, green coated earth pony, who was staring and awe of the detail and beauty of his surroundings. The other was doing the same, who was grey pegasus.
“We are in Canterlot Castle.” the pegasus mumbled to himself. “No one at home are going beleive this.”
“You can get yourselves introduced. I am going to inform the princesses that you have arrived. And let them know that there are five RDN ponie now.” Shining Armor then left the room, closing the door.
The earth pony and the pegasus were oblivious to the others in the room, until Axel interrupted them.
“So, what is your name?” he asked.
“Silver Brony.” the pegasus answered.
“Commodore Crazy.” the earth pony replied.
“Lets compare stories. There must be some connectiont aht caused all of us to be teleported here into Equestria.” Elo stated.
“Before we do that, I need to put this out. I have told Shining Armor what RDN stands for, what it is and what it is based on. That’s where it gets touchy. They know that it is based on My Little Pony, but I haven’t told them what it is. I also accidentally stated Shining Armors name before he introduced himself. Now that I am thinking about it, Shining Armor might put two and two together and some ego’s might burst.”
“Why would we burst ego’s? So what. Granted, Twilight might go psycho about it, but that is the worst case scenario.” Elo said. “Plus, we aren’t going to go off and yell the top of our lungs ‘We are from a parallel universe!’. That’ll be stupid.”
“Let’s just state that the public did learn that we are from an alternate reality, I am sure the scientific thinkers in this world are familiar to the concept of the multiverse.” Silver Brony stated.
“So pretty much, we are essentially the first people, from our universe, to discover that traveling to other universes is possible and the fact that the multiverse exists.” Grey Dragon said.
“Wait a minute. The universe is big. Really, really big. Could it be possible that we are in our own universe, just that we are in another part of it?” Commodore Crazy asked. After this question was asked, there was a long pause.
“Let’s save this conversation for later. So how did we get here?” Axel Gunn asked. “I was on RDN when I got here.”
“Same here.” Grey Dragon said.
“Me three.” Silver Brony continued.
“So we were all on RDN before we got here?” asked Elo.
The group nodded.
“So, where were you teleported?” asked Grey Dragon. “I was transported, here, in Canterlot.”
“Fillydelphia.” Silver Brony and Commodore Crazy said in unison.
“Appleoosa.” Axel Gunn answered.
“Hoofington.” Elo continued.
“Did any of you meet any main and/or side characters when you got here?” asked Axel Gunn.
“I met Celestia, Twilight, and Shining Armor.” answered Grey Dragon. the others stared at him, with jealousy in their eyes. “And to get this out of the way, no. This version of Celestia isn’t a troll nor a tyrant.”
The others continued to stare at him.
“She isn’t Molestia, okay. We’re safe.”
“Anyway, me and Axel Gunn met Braeburn. We, sadly, caught him in an off day.” Elo said.
“What happened?” asked Commodore Crazy.
“Three banks were robbed clean out and then blown up. By the same group in one week.” Axel Gunn answered. “I saw one of the banks and it was like it wasn’t there.”
“Damn. Was everyone okay?” asked Silver Brony.
“I decided not to pry. He decided to drop me off at Canterlot, since I am from an alternate reality, he thought it would be wise to notify the princesses. That’s when we met Elo.” Axel Gunn continued.
“I didn’t have the smarts of not constantly asking Braeburn questions about anything that is Equestria.” Elo said.
“Will his family be notified?”
Shining Armor rubbed off the sweat on his forehead. Immediately after leaving the RDN ponies, we gets bombarded with the news of a nobles carriage falling from the sky. The noble didn’t survive the fall. Further investigation revealed that he was transporting an important item, whihc wasn’t found in the wreckage.
“Go. Find his family.” he ordered. The guard saluted and left.
‘First the robbery and bombings in in Appleoosa, then these RDN ponies show up and now a convoy was just attacked taking the life of a well liked noble.’ the captain sighed. ‘Where are the princesses?”
“THIS IS AWESOME!” yelled Minti, as the wind goes against his face.
“Awesome?! This is freakin’ terrifying.” yelled back Derpyshy.
The two ponies were riding a make-shift carriage as the moon princess pulls it, moving at their fastest speed. Minti was having a blast, but Derpyshy on the other hand, was holding on for dear life. Luna rolled her eyes as the two newcomers act like fillies.
‘With the dragon-hybrid in Canterlot, the two in Fillydelphia and now two from ponyville, hopefully this will be all the RDN ponies that are here.’ the princess thought to herself. Luna looked back towards the to two behind her. She slightly smirked as Minti tried to get Derpyshy up.
The three arrived in the royal garden. She landed gracefully, but the carriage didn’t.
“ow.” said one of the two. The guards stayed in their positions, still with stern looks on their faces.
“Please help them up.” Luna ordered. The guards nodded and jogged over to the two and assisted them getting up. Minti and and Derpyshy stumbled, but maintained balance as they got up.
‘:sigh:, May mother help them when they meet Cadance.’ Luna thought, while she was making a small smile. “Please follow me. There is somewhere that you need to be right now.” she said and walked into the castle. She heard the duo follow her, so she didn’t need to look back. She moved slightly slower than her normal walking speed, in order to keep the RDN ponies on the right track and not get lost.
They finally reached the room where the RDN ponies will be staying until Luna and her sister figure out what caused them to come into our world. She opened the door and saw something she didn’t expect. She would have thought, since all the ponies appearing are part of this RDN and the fact they might not know that there are other in a similar situation, they would be conversing trying figure out each others story.
Instead, they were under piles of books, but not ruining them. Reading them. They were also taking notes, until one noticed her.
“Hey, it’s Princess Luna!” yelled out a green earth pony. Immediately after that, a book was thrown at them.
“Lower your voice, Captain Canterlock.” said the dragon-pony hybrid.
“How many of you are there?” asked Luna, still in shock.
“Well so far, five.” answered a grey pegasus.
“Um, Princess Luna, could you please move.” a voice behind her asked. Luna got out of her daze and turned back to tthe two ponies behind her.
“Oh. Sorry. Please make yourself comfortable, if you could.”
“There’s more!” yelled the brown unicorn.
“Quiet down.” said the yellow-ish pegasus.
“Well, I’m Minti and this is Derpyshy.” Minti said, pointing at the Fluttershy look-a-like.
“Elo.” the brown unicorn said.
“Silver Brony.” the grey pegasus deadpanned, mainly focussing on the book in front of him.
“Commodore Crazy” the green earth pony introduced.
“Grey Dragon, but I decided to change it to Grey Scale.” the pony-dragon hybrid said.
“Axel Gunn.” said the yellow-ish pegasus.
“So there is seven of you now. I’ll go get my sister and we can begin this meeting.” Luna addressed before leaving.
“So the gang’s all here.” Grey Scale said. The seven ponies looked at each other.
“So what happened here?” asked Derpyshy.
“Oh, we got bored, so we decided to read some of the books here. Also, it really sucks to be your right now.” Axel Gunn answered.
“Yeah, planning on getting a hair cut so I don’t have too look like this. And from what it looks like, we were all transformed into our OC’s”
“We already compared stories, and we came to the conclusion that all of us was on RDN before we were transported here.”
Before any could finish two pegasi walked in covering up a peach coated Pegasus, trying to conceal him from the others. The two pegasi were wearing goggles and blue uniforms with lightning streaks going down. It took half a second to recognize them.
“Now we’re meeting the Wonderbolts. Well, isn’t this dandy.” Exclaimed Silver Brony.
“um, sorry. We didn’t know this room was occupied.” Said one of the Wonderbolts, which had a familiar female voice.
“Your Spitfire, aren’t you? And the other is Soarin’, correct?” asked Minti.
“Yeah. So?” Soarin’ asked with a cocked eyebrow.
“Normally, I would geek out about this, but right now is A) not the time and B) I’m kind of getting used to meeting important ponies of this world.”
“Wait, ‘this world’! Please don’t tell me you’re like this nut!” Spitfire said, pointing at the peach coated pegasus.
The pegasus looked back at her.
“You know, if you continue to call me that, I will not be hesitant to smack you, regardless of your celebrity status.”
“Please tell me that you know of this ‘RDN’. He has been talking non-stop about, trying to convince me that is exists.” Spitfire asked the seven ponies.
“Yeah, we know what RDN is. We go on it. So, what’s your name? Preferably just use your username.” Grey Scale deadpanned.
“Eagle Hooves.” The pegasus answered.
“So that makes eight. Eight users of RDN got transported here, in Equestria and were spread out throughout the country.” Minti annylaized.
“By the way, since we are like, new here to the literal since, what is the date.”
“March 13th.” Soarin’ answered. The entire group fell silent and looked at each other.
“Is there going to be any special event or celebration coming up soon?” asked Elo.
“Yeah. There’ve been rumors flying around that someone connected to the Equestrian royalty is getting married soon, why?”
The group fell into a more, deeper silence, only too give each other worried looks.
“Well this is just dandy.” Commodore Crazy said, breaking the silence.
“Might as well use the local language here, but we’re bucked everypony.” Derpyshy stated.
“Wait, why?” asked Spitfire.
“Let’s just say, we know about future events that are about to happen in about a month.” Minti answered.
Grey Scale turned to Minti.
“Do you think we should tell the princesses?”
“I say no. We can’t risk changing this worlds turn of events.”
“We already did that by simply coming here. Granted we can’t do that much stuff, but events have already been altered.”
The others began to show agreement with Scale.
“Look, how about this. When the event comes, we intervene a the right time.”
“What the hay are you ponies talking about?!” asked Spitfire.
“Okay, we are from an alternate reality/universe/world and you are subjects of a television show. From what you told us, we are towards the end of the second season of that show. The season finale of that show is coming up in this world. We know full well what is going to transpire with that event occurs. We are only discussing on how we are going to react and handle the situation when it comes to pass.” Axel Gunn explained.
“So when will this event happen?” asked Soarin’
“April 21st or April 22nd.” answered Eagle Hooves.
“Okayyyyy, we know a bit too much, so incase you need us (which I hope you don’t), you can find us in Cloudsdale.” Spitfire said as she grabbed Soarin’ and bolted out of the room, possibly the city.
The now eight ponies remained silent, staring at the now empty doorway. After a minute or so, Crazy and Axel went back reading books and Minti joined them. Grey Scale and Elo then agreed to grab some of the books already used and place them back into their respective shelves.
The sun was setting and all the ponies stared at the beauty of it all.
“Think about it. We are possibly the only ones from our world to see this happen. Incredible.” Derpyshy said, with the others agreeing in unanimously. After a long day filled with twists and turns, the long day has finally come to an end. The events that were experienced were very taxing to the eight ponies.
The ponies continued to read and converse to one another, either talking about what they experienced while they were in Equestria or what happened before they were transported to Equestria. It was 7:27, at least two hours after the sunset and the moonrise, when the Two Sisters arrived.
Along with them was Shining Armor. All three of them looked extremely tired and in desperate need of either sleep of caffeine.
“Luna has told me about the sev---wait. Why is there eight here?” Celestia asked.
“uh...Hi, I’m Eagle Hooves. I was transported into Cloudsdale and the Wonderbolts met me and they thought that if we go to the Royal Archives, we could figure out a way for me to get back to my world. We got lost and we found the others by accident.”
“Speaking of which, how did meeting the Wonderbolts go?” asked Minti.
“It went badly. I nearly drowned Spitfire and when I learned when I became pony, I fainted.”
“Smooth.” Grey Scale commented.
“I wouldn’t talk, if I were you.” Shining Armor said to Grey Scale with a smug look.
“What did I do?!”
“You jumped out of a window, in front of my sister and Princess Celesia. then You ran around the city, trying to avoid the guards that weren’t even trying to hurt you and then you fly straight into my protection spell.”
“I could’ve died!”
“Yeah, when you jumped out the window.”
“Besides that, you nearly broke my face in when you placed up that spell.”
“Your fault that you weren’t paying attention.”
“Ladies, break it up.” Commodore Crazy interrupted. “So Grey Scale, you said that you said you met Twilight with Princess Celestia. What caused you to jump out the window?”
“um...ah.....Celestia.....had a fly swatter...”
The group looked at Celestia and back to Grey Scale. Minti face hoffed.
“What’s wrong with having a fly swatter?” the sun princess asked.
The group gave off even more weird looks and Crazy slammed his face into the table.
“You really don’t want to know.” Silver Brony said.
“No, I really do.”
Silver Brony paused and took a deep breath.....
Shining Armor’s eye was twitching after Silver Brony’s explanation. Luna’s mouth was agape and Celestia was at completely disturbed. Grey Scale looked at the floor avoiding the looks he was receiving.
Silver Brony got a sympathetic pat on the back by Axel Gunn, after explaining the most embarrassing thing you could say to a princess.
“Congrats to all of us. We just broke Celestia.” Minti said.
Celestia turned and slowly walked out, still disturbed from the tale she was told. Shining Armor got out of his daze and looked back at Grey Scale, whom replied with an awkward smile.
“I think this meeting should be postponed, for a later date. And I believe that we shouldn’t dwell too deep into what goes on in your world.” Shining Armor then left.
Now only Luna was the only one left in the room.
“I have arranged for you all to be living in the, now no longer abandoned, west wing of the castle. There are enough rooms to accommodate one of you each. Just please, don’t create too much of a mess.” And after that Luna left and three guards stepped in.
“Please follow us. We will guide you to your rooms.” one of them said with a deep gruff voice.
The RDN ponies looked at Grey Scale.
“If we get back, you are so banned.” Eagle Hooves said.
