"FUS RO DAH!" the dragonborn's shout could heard all throughout Ponyville. It shattered the windows of several homes and gave some unlucky ponies a free flying lesson including Twilight Sparkle. Heavy and Carmine were not spared by the sudden shout heard from behind them and were launched several feet through the air before they could take a proper look at their enemy.
"Wooooahh!" Heavy crashed further into town but not before safely embracing Sasha tightly around his arms to protect it. He landed butt first.
Carmine on the other hand was launched a different direction and crashed into a garbage can filled with half eaten sweets. He quickly pulled himself back up and started yelling. "WHAT THE FUCK MAN!? How about you warn me next time you use that shit!" he jumped out the dumpster and headed back to Ulfgar.
"Intimidation is the first step towards conquering an unknown enemy. Besides, I couldnt let you have all the fun with those loud dwemer metals." the dovakhiin grinned. Carmine facepalmed.
"Why the hell isnt anyone shooting back at us?" The COG soldier was confused.
"They must've cowered before the might of my thu'um." Ulfgar replied.
They both started heading towards the unknown town and noticed a large sign right before the entrance.
Welcome to Ponyville!
The happiest place in Equestria!
"Ponyville! what the hell? Does that name sound weird to you Ulfy?"
"Dont call me Ulfy..And yes, it seems rather strange."
Heavy had meanwhile gotten back up, not even questioning what just happened. He was gently rubbing of the dirt of his mini-gun. "Shh shh, baby do not cry. Heavy is here." After the Russian finished cleaning Sasha he headed further in the enemies stronghold. He noticed a purple blur on the ground not to far from him. Meanwhile he could hear the screams of the inhabitants and the sound of slamming doors further in town. Didnt really bother him. Heavy walked towards the strange bright colored creature on the ground. It was unconscious.
"Is definitly not chicken. COMRADES! come quick!" Heavy signalled Carmine and Ulfgar to come.
"Oh my god. Look at how cute that thing is!" Carmine started poking the small creature. "Look! it even has a little tattoo, and whats this?" He brushed its mane aside which revealed a small horn much to Ulfgar's interest.
"By the gods, I was told stories of unicorns as a child. I thought they were just legends! but so I thought of the dragons." The dovakhiin carefully touched the unicorns horn. "The legends say unicorns are majestic spiral-horned horses, capable of deploying powerful magic."
"Judging from the sign we just passed im pretty sure its a pony. A pony-corn if you will." Carmine joked as he continued poking the creature.
"So we crush little pony?" The russian asked.
"No. Or atleast not yet. My honor will not allow me to strike down a defenseless creature. Besides, im curious to see what it's capable off. There must be more around. Keep your guard up." The dragonborn unsheathed his greatsword.
"Oh come on! whats the worst thing these cute little ponies can do to us? Assault us with candy and happy songs?" Carmine wasn't worried. Ulfgar decided to agree and resheathed his blade.
"I will find little pony that kicked me in face, then squash it like bug!" Heavy said as his nose had stopped bleeding, but some remained on his face.
"Easy now Heavy, maybe its all a big misunderstanding. We should atleast look for someone to talk to and understand whats going on. I say we go..." Carmine was interupted by a blue blur that kicked him in the head with extreme speed.
"ALWAYS THE FUCKING HEAD! WHAT THE FUCK?" though he barely lost his balance it got him slightly annoyed.
"IS BLU SCOUT YAAAAAAAAAHHHH!" Heavy weapons guy started revving up his mini-gun and launched a barrage of bullets towards the blue speedster. It carefully dodged the deadly incoming projectiles while skillfully gliding through the air. The bullets kept missing target but penetrated through a nearby building and some trees. *CLICK CLICK CLICK* Out of ammo. Heavy had two more belts of ammo strapped around him so no problems yet. Although reloading would take him a while. The blue creature now stopped in mid-air revealing itself to be a similair pony like the unconscious one on the ground. Only instead of having a horn it had two feathered wings and had a rainbow-like mane. It spoke.
"You leave Twilight alone you big bullies!" Ulfgar and Carmine looked at each other in confusion, then pulled Heavy away from reloading Sasha. He now realized he wasnt firing at the BLU scout but at a small pony instead. Heavy grunted. The trio started forming a think-tank.
"Okay, we're certain these ponies can talk now, and appereantly fly, cast magic and create buildings. But they dont seem really dangerous do they?" Carmine said.
"Aye, but the flying one shows great courage by facing us." Ulfgar replied.
Heavy was unsure on what to do. He was not used to being in non-life threatening situations as he constantly fought with the most dangerous people on earth on a daily basis. Destroying the BLU team is all he knows and remembers. But these ponies arent like the BLU. They appeared weak and inferior compared to them. Would killing them soothe his bloodlust? The Russian was unsure.
"Do we crush blue pony?"
"Nah, I think we scared them enough as it is." Carmine answered.
"What are you monsters conspiring about! you scared of me huh? Put em up!" the rainbow-maned pony yelled as she took a boxing pose. Carmine stepped forward as he threw down his lancer.
"Uhh...We come in peace I guess?"
"What?! then why are you destroying our town?"
"We didnt destroy anyth...." Carmine stopped and took sight of the shattered windows at several houses, the building Heavy had hit with his mini-gun was completly destroyed. "Oh."
"And why are you trying to eat Twilight!" the winged pony pointed her hoof at the unconscious purple unicorn.
"Twilight? We werent gonna eat a freaking pony. Look... We're stranded here and looking for a way out. Thats all."
"I dont believe you!" the blue pony shouted still in a defensive pose. More ponies started to gather as they observed the three strange creatures among them.
"These ruffians must be stopped at once!" A white unicorn with an elegant purple mane broke the silence.
"They'd better not be messin' with Twi over there." Another pony wearing a cowboy hat said.
"Yeah!" a last completly pink pony shouted in a high-pitched voice.
Heavy started growing more annoyed by the second as he was the centre of attention for these puny creatures. Carmine and Ulfgar remained calm. They both realised that if they were going to get out of here, they needed help. And they'll take any help they can get, so first priority was changed to befriend this town of talking ponies. Carmine picked up the unconscious unicorn.
"You let her go right now!" the blue winged pony rushed towards Carmine at full speed but was stopped by the dovakhiin midway as he grabbed her hindleg. She struggled to escape his grip, bucked him a few times which did not budge Ulfgar's iron armor in the slightest. Meanwhile Carmine continued to approach the handful of ponies that had gathered around them with the unicorn in his arms. The ponies had worried looks on their faces as they saw the giant two-legged creature with the words 'Grub Killer' on his armor approach them. The pony wearing a cowboy hat now also started getting in a more defensive position.
Carmine was right infront of group now. They werent able to read any expression on its helmet-covered face. Just two blue dots shining brightly where they had guessed his eyes would be. He then proceeded to kneel down and gently place the unicorn before them.
"Look, im sorry we made a bad first impression." Carmine raised his hand signalling Ulfgar to release the blue pony. The dovakhiin did so and received a rainbow tail to the face as she immediatly rushed at the COG soldier once again and bucked him right in the helmet. He didnt budge this time as he stared the blue pony down.
"Would you kindly stop doing that please." Carmine rose up to his feet again towering over the small ponies. "Like I said, we're just here looking for a way home." The orange pony looked at him with narrowed eyes.
"Ah can tell yer telling the truth, but can ya tell me why Twilight's out cold then?" She asked. The dovakhiin now also joined Carmine next to the ponies.
"Aye, that would be my fault. We had thought to encounter demonic creatures of some kind. So with the power of the thu'um I..." Carmine interupted him.
"Yeah, basicly this guy doesnt know his own strength and blew her away. We're truly sorry for what happened and we'll do whatever we can to make up for it."
"Well ah guess we can forgive ya'll if Twi's alright. And ya'll fix the damage ya did. Anyway, im Applejack!" the orange pony held out her hoof.
"Apple...jack? What a weird name!" the COG soldier couldnt help but chuckle but proceeded to awkwardly shake her hoof. "Im Carmine, this here is Ulfgar and the big grumpy guy over there is Heavy." Applejack frowned.
"Ya say mah name's weird but what about yours."
"Hmm. I guess they are pretty weird."
"Anyway, these here are my friends. Thats Pinkie Pie."
"HI!" the pink pony had a large smile on her face.
"An' this here is Rarity."
"Charmed." The white unicorn spoke as if she was royalty.
"The pegasus over there is Rainbow Dash."
"Im still keeping my eye on you buddy!" she snorted.
"And last we have Flutte...Fluttershy where the hay you at!" Applejack left the group for a moment to search for the missing pony. She eventually ended up pulling up a cream-colored pegasus with long pink manes from a bush. Applejack started scolding her.
"Ya shouldnt be out here hiding, Twilight might need your help!"
"Oh yes...its just that...its really scary and...ill just wait here untill its over... if thats okay?" Fluttershy responded with a soft timid voice.
"But yer so good with animals. Ya should know something about those guys."
"I...I dont think those are animals."
Applejack frowned and turned at Carmine again. "Hey! what are ya'll guys anyway?" The COG soldier had meanwhile started a conversation with the pony known as Pinkie Pie.
"And thats how Equestria was made!" she chirped happily.
"What? You just told me about some rock farm and rainbows!" Carmine said confused. Applejack facehooved and turned to the cowering pegasus again.
"Listen Fluttershy, ah know yer scared but ya gotta keep yer head high an' help Twilight right away. Im sure these fellas wont hurt anypony."
"Oh... but well I...just dont think I can do it...its just to sca...*CLANK* EEP!" Fluttershy was startled as Heavy suddenly appeared before her and Applejack, dropping his weapon Sasha which was still larger then a single pony.
"Little pony. You are scared? Of Heavy and Sasha? Little pony should not be scared. Be strong and crush enemies. What is ponies name?" He asked with a serious tone.
"Umm.. its Fluttersh...."
"I can not hear you little one."
"...One more time?"
"WHAT! WHAT IS NAME! TELL ME NOW!" Heavy's sudden outburst caused Fluttershy to freeze up like one of those weird fainting goats. Applejack tried to comfort her, but in vain. She now faced the giant Russian.
"Ah'm mighty sorry for that. Her name's Fluttershy and well...as ya can guess she's really shy. But ya could've not startled her like that." Applejack said to Heavy as he started grinning.
"Little hat pony talks like Engineer"
"Whadda'ya mean ah talk like an engineer?"
"Njet. Like comrade Engineer."
"Look here, ah don't know what fancy accent yer talking with, but ah cant understand a single darn yer saying. OH HORSEAPPLES!" Applejack then suddenly remembered Twilight was still unconscious. Without thinking she left the fainted Fluttershy alone with the largest of the three creatures as she rushed back to the rest of her friends and the two strange creatures.
The Russian looked down on the small pegasus on the ground. All he could think of was killing it. Kill everyone, including his companions. As long he could kill something. Even though he had only been in this strange world for a couple of hours. He lusted for blood and battle. In his mind he knew it would be wrong. To murder a being that wouldnt even be able to defend itself. But mind and body do not always cooperate. Heavy kneeled down, raised both his arms and reached out to Fluttershy's neck.
Meanwhile Rarity had been insulting the two other humans attire and Pinkie Pie was happily bouncing up and down happy to meet new 'ponies'. Rainbow Dash sat on a cloud and continued observing the humans every move. Twilight Sparkle was moved from the ground to a more comfortable place on a bench by Carmine. Applejack returned to the group and approached the COG soldier.
"Ya guys have to help us. Our first-aid pony is ... well not available. We need to take Twilight to a hospital." Applejack asked worried. Carmine just nodded and headed to pick up the unconscious unicorn once again. On his way he was stopped by Ulfgar.
"Allow me." the dovakhiin placed his hands above Twilights head as a bright orange ball of magic appeared. He continued holding it close to her for half a minute as scratches and bruises started to dissapear and her eyes slowly started opening.
"Ya weird creatures can use magic as well?" Applejack asked.
"Nope, atleast not where im from. But the people in his homeland do." Carmine responded.
"Ya'll aint from the same place?"
"Nah, we're all from a different world actually. We dont even know each other. We just woke up here a few hours ago."
"Then if ah may ask...What are ya'll exactly?"
"I guess we're humans. But if you want to get technical Im Seran, Ulfgar mentioned at least three-thousand times he's a Nord from Skyrim. And I think Heavy said he was from some planet called Russia."
"Well ah aint never heard of them places before."
Twilight had finally opened her eyes but was still looking groggy. "Oh Princess Celestia, I really like your mane." Little did she know she was not facing the sun princess, but a deadly dovakhiin instead. Her vision became more clear after a while. Her eyes immediatly widened as she saw Ulfgar stare right in her eyes. "M-m-monster!" Twilight jumped up and started sprinting. She crashed aproximatly two seconds later into Carmine's legs.
"Woah! easy there horsey."
"It talked! oh what do I do. What do I do!" the unicorn continued panicking. "Applejack what are you standing there for! HELP!"
"Uh Twilight, they said they were sorry. And uhm...Golfcar over there patched ya back up with some fancy magic."
"For the last time its Ulfgar!" the dragonborn shouted.
"Yeah what he said. Besides, they promised to fix everything."
"Really...? But then why are they here? Why have we seen or heard anything about this species before? And what was that shockwave?"
"Ah dunno, they just said they were lost an needed some help. They aint from Equestria thats for sure."
"They're not from Equestria? Then how did they get here?"
"Jeez Twilight, ah have no idea. Ask em yerself." Twilight nervously started heading to the dovakhiin.
"Mister...Wolfjar is it? My friend told me you had healed my injuries with magic. I just wanted to thank you for that. And if you dont mind can I ask a few questions?" Twilight smiled awkwardly. Ulfgar grunted and sat down on the bench intensely staring at the unicorn's horn.
"Only if I can ask you a question afterwards."
"Ofcourse you can! First of all. Can you telll me where you're from and how you got here." She lifted a scroll and quill with magic.
"I come from a great land named Skyrim. I died by the flames left by some mad Daedric prince. Then I woke up here with the ones named Carmine and Heavy. They also come from different realms. Thats all I can tell."
"Wait. Did you just say you died?"
"Aye..." The dovakhiin looked up to the sky for a few seconds before answering. Twilight would normally assume he was crazy. But she saw sadness in his eyes and was willing to try and understand his situation.
"So you wanted to ask me a question as well?"
"Aye...Tell me, does a unicorns magic come from within? or is it all compressed in the horn."
"What do you mean?"
"What im saying is...Is the pony magical, or the horn?" He asked with a wicked grin.
"Oh...well I cant be bothered to explain the fine details. But basicly. A unicorn without its horn cant cast magic. And lets say, an earthpony WITH a horn wont be able to either. So to answer your question. The horn is useless without the unicorn. Why would you ask such a strange question?"
"Oh no reason..." The dovakhiin seemed slightly dissapointed. Carmine now also joined Twilight and Ulfgar to answer some of her questions.
"By the way Ulfy. Have you seen Heavy?" he asked the dovakhiin.
"No. not since after the blue one attacked us."
"Hmm then where could h..." Carmine was interupted by a loud scream.
"Fluttershy!" Twilight panicked again when she heard her friends voice. Carmine and Ulfgar looked at each other and were expecting the worst. Rainbow Dash and Applejack were the first heading back to where they heard the screaming. Pinkie Pie, Rarity and Twilight were to next to arrive at the scene followed by Ulfgar and Carmine. They encountered something much more horrible then they could ever imagine.
"Nooo.. please stop!" they heard Fluttershy's soft and sweet voice.
"Njet." Heavy was chuckling like a madmen.
"Noo! please! I cant take it anym..haha....hahahahah!" her screams of fear suddenly started forming into laughter.
"DA! LITTLE PONY LIKES TO BE TICKLED!" Heavy laughed as he continued tickling the pony.
"Nooo! please stop..hahaha...haha!" she started slamming her front hooves to the ground with tears of laughter in her eyes.
"Njet! now is little pony not scared?"
Noooo! please! I'm not scared at all anymore, just please stop!" Heavy stopped and went to retrieve Sasha.
"Now little pony not scared. Is much better to me."
"You dont have to call me little pony...you can just call me Fluttershy...if thats okay with you."
"Da! Is shy little Flutterpony!"
The group of humans and ponies that just arrived looked at the scene with their jaws dropped to the ground. Wasnt quitte what they had expected. Ulfgar wanted to break the silence.
"We should really start looking fo..." now the dovakhiin was interupted.
"STOP RIGHT THERE CRIMINAL SCUM!" an unknown voice approached.
"Oh by the gods! not again!" Ulfgar expected seeing another Hold Guard. He wasnt sure if he was happy or confused when a group of fifteen pegasi dressed in golden armor landed before them instead. The pegasi pulled three large carriages.
"Your presence in Equestria have not gone unnoticed. Under direct orders of the Princess you are hereby required to stand before her in Canterlot Castle immediatly. If you decline, know that we have been ordered to use force if neccesary." The largest pegasus stated.
Heavy, Ulfgar and Carmine stared blanky at each other for a second before bursting out into more laughter. "Is this guy serious? What force? You gonna crush us in a mini-stampede?" The trio kept laughing out loud, much to the Royal guards annoyance. Applejack decided to shut them up as she raised her voice.
"HUSH! ya'll guys listen, if ya go to the princess and tell her what ya told me. She might be able to send ya'll guys home. She's the most powerful magic user in all of Equestria." Applejack said and Twilight nodded in agreement.
"Are you sure we wont be banished or imprisoned or something.? You know...because we like...destroyed some things..." Carmine asked.
"How can you say such a thing! the princess is a wonderful leader and can see the good that resides in every-pony. I'm certain she'll do whatever she can to help." Twilight seemed rather protective towards the princess. Carmine looked at Ulfgar who immediatly agreed as he wanted to return to Skyrim rather today then tomorrow. Heavy was happy he made friends with Fluttershy, but knew going to the castle would be better for the team. Carmine nodded.
"Then off to the pony princess!" all three humans seperatly entered a carriage as they rose up to the sky carried by the pegasi royal guards.
"Now wait just a goshdarn minute. They aint fixed the damage they all caused! come back ya slackers!" Applejack shook her hoof around in frustration while shouting.
"And I didnt get to know what color balloons they'd like on their Welcome to Ponyville party!" Pinkie seemed sad.
"I dont think those weirdos like parties Pinkie...They still seem kind of like they have a few screws loose to be honest." Rainbow Dash told her.
"Certainly the next time we meet, something must be done about those DREADFUL outfits. I will not allow these crimes of fashion to carelessly wander around Equestria." Rarity was clearly disgusted by all three human's attire.
"Oh...I uhmm... think they look really scary...but I dont think they're bad ponies or hewmans...I think..." Fluttershy peeped.
"Well...Whatever is gonna happen. Its in the princess's hooves now." Twilight Sparkle took one last look at the carriages in the distance.
Lyra had just had a hard day at work in Canterlot. She was constantly being ridiculed by other ponies because of her wild theories of creatures called 'humans' who had claw like hooves and walked on their hindlegs that resided in dimensions surrounding their world. No one would believe her EVER, but she was determined to proof this to all of Equestria. Just not today. Today she was just gonna enjoy a warm bath and sleep for a good twelve hours as her morning and afternoon proved to be stressfull enough this day. She took the same path as always. As she passed the 'Welcome to Ponyville' sign she noticed Twilight Sparkle and her friends. Lyra didnt bother to approach the mane six seemingly having an interesting conversation. Nope. Just a warm bath, then bed. Thats all.
"......Why is my house blown up?"
