Ratchet and Shining Armor look intently at the direction of Canterlot. What they see next is the sun rising over the horizon.
"Sunrise! It's really the Sun! That means Princess Celestia's back, and the changelings must have been defeated. I KNEW YOU COULD DO IT TWILIE! I'm so proud of you." He yells out in joy.
"Prime, you and the ponies really did it." Ratchet says to himself.
Seeing the sun beginning to rise, Princess Cadence begins to lead the evacuees back from the Everfree Forest, into Ponyville.
From the other direction, coming from Canterlot, were the three Autobots, and their giant, Omega Supreme, the Mane 6, and all of the ponies that were abducted. All parties finally reach Ponyville, as friends and loved once finally reunite after a week of uncertainty, and terror. Finally the nightmare was over for the ponies.
During the happy reunions, Sweetie Belle, who was with Cadence's refugees, was not only happy to see her sister Rarity come back from battle safely, but also her best friends Scootaloo and Apple Bloom who disappeared almost a week ago.
She ran up to her three most cherished ponies and gave them all a huge embrace.
"RARITY! APPLE BLOOM! SCOOTALOO! I'm so happy you're all back. I've missed you!" She shouts out in her squeaky tone.
Spike runs up to Twilight, and also gives her a hug, as she lovingly nuzzles him back. Shining Armor is more than happy to see not only his sister return in triumph, but his wife safely returning with the civilians.
Then from the sky, the two alicorn princesses descend. They both land right in the middle of the town as the citizens bow.
"Citizens of Equestria!" Princess Celestia addresses the crowd. "Today is indeed a great day of joy and relief. We have driven away the evil invaders from our land, and have freed the kidnapped ponies from their captors. Peace has been restored, and my sister and I have been liberated from the darkness. And we have the holders of the Elements of Harmony to thank. Twilight Sparkle, and her friends, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Rarity have once again saved our fair kingdom from destruction. But this time, they did not fight alone. We also have our new friends, Optimus Prime, and his faithful Autobot companions who have traveled from beyond the stars to assist in our victory. Without their help, we would not be standing here right now. They have all proven themselves to be great heroes, and are the true meaning of courage."
All the ponies began cheering while the Autobots simply waved.
"Yeah, it's times like these that make it all worth it." Bumblebee said.
"I hear that little buddy." Ironhide replied.
Celestia motions the crowd to quiet down.
"But now, we have another situation we must resolve. Due to recent events here, the seal that held Discord in his stone prison has been broken. He has escaped, and traveled to the world where our new friends, the Autobots currently reside. On Planet Earth, homeworld of the Humans. I have allowed the Element holders to travel with the Autobots to bring Discord down. If he is not stopped, his power will grow, and he will threaten all of existance. Twilight Sparkle, you and your friends, please come forward."
The Mane 6 approch the princess, and bow.
"Please go with the Autobots. Do whatever you must to stop Discord. His rampage must be put to an end Twilight."
"We won't let you down Princess." Twilight replies with confidence.
"Princess Celestia, I once again thank you for allowing the Elements of Harmony to travel to our world."
"Think nothing of it Optimus Prime. You saved us, I will gladly return the gesture of good faith. I know the humans aren't exactly an innocent race, but they do posses good in them. And no being deserves to be subjugated to his schemes."
"But there's one problem Optimus." Ratchet said, "Omega Supreme is in no condition to fly. His systems took extensive damage during the battle you guys had."
The bots, and ponies look at the giant.
His armor looked like it was about to crumble, he had loose wires and cords hanging off of him, and he was also leaking energon.
"Now what'll we do?" Twilight asked in dissapointment.
"Do not worry, Let sister and I handle this." Luna says as she and Celestia fly up to Omega Supreme's head area.
Both alicorns touch Omega's head with their horns. One on each side.
Omega Supreme begins to glow vibrantly. When the light finally diminished, Omega Supreme looked like a brand new bot.
"OMEGA SUPREME, SYSTEMS FULLY FUNCTIONAL! ENERGON LEVELS AT 100%!
"Well I'll be a rusting diode!" Ironhide calls out.
"OMEGA SUPREME GRATEFUL TO ROYAL PONIES! THANK YOU!"
"Anything for our saviors." Luna responded.
The giant then transforms into his rocket mode.
"Looks like we're ready to go." Bumblebee said to the ponies, and Optimus.
"WAIT!" a green unicorn called from the crowd.
"Oh no, not this...." Rainbow Dash said as she facehoofs.
"Please take me with you! I wish to meet the humans!" The unicorn calls out.
"Sorry Lyra, but we can't take you. You're not an Element holder, and I don't know what will happen if Discord gets to you." Twilight replied to her. "Also, I'm sorry I doubted you. You were right, they do exist."
Lyra dissapointed, returns to the crowd, though part of her was happy to know that she was right all along, as Bon Bon apologizes to her for ever doubting, and making fun of her about it.
"All Autobots, and ponies, please board." Optimus calls to his companions.
"Spike, let's go." Twilight calls to the dragon.
"On it. I can't wait to eat some more of their deep fried stuff. it's delicious!"
Applejack gives both Big Mac and Apple Bloom a hug before she boards Omega Supreme.
"Rarity, promise me you'll come back safely." Sweetie Belle says with tears in her eyes.
"Of course my dear, I promise. But I also want you to promise me something in return."
"ANYTHING!" Sweetie Belle yells out.
"No mischief while I'm gone, understand?" Rarity said to her sister.
"I promise big sis. I love you." They embrace, as the fashionista boards the rocket.
"Thank you again Optimus Prime, for helping us save our world, and promise you'll watch over my little ponies." Celestia says to the Autobot leader.
"With all that I am Princess. They will return to Equestria safely." Optimus reassured her.
"I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M GOING INTO SPACE!" Pinkie Pie yelled excitedly. "I'm gonna have the best alien party when we get to Earth."
"And I can't wait to try my wings on that new world. Let's see how Equestria's fastest flyer can set a new record in the human world." Rainbow dash said with equal excitement. "This is gonna be the BEST TRIP EVER!"
WIth that said, all the bots, the Mane 6, and Spike board Omega Supreme, as he takes off.
"Good luck my faithful student." Celestia says to herself, as she watches Omega Supreme disappear from sight in the sky.
Over the next several hours, Twilight begins explaining planet Earth to the girls. She tells them about the humans, how certain events made her and Spike famous, and especially about Megatron and the Decepticons. She warned them about their evil, and how they should steer clear of them, and let the Autobots handle any situation that dealt with them.
The girls, taken aback slightly about the news of the Decepticons, felt slightly uneasy, but Fluttershy would only cower and hide behind Bumblebee.
"Hey, don't worry Fluttershy, Optimus promised he'd never let anyone hurt you." He reassured her.
This did calm her down a bit.
"Please, I can take 'em. I say bring on the evil bots. I'll turn them into scrap metal." Rainbow Dash boasted with confidence.
"I'd hold off on that if I were you Rainbow." Twilight said with a warning tone.
After several more hours, they finally reach Earth. Omega Supreme begins his landing sequence, and they touch down in front of The Ark.
The ponies exit and observe the world around them.
"Gosh Twilight, Ah can't believe Ah'm on an alien world." Applejack said.
"OOH, I can't wait to see some alien lifeforms!" Pinkie said while bouncing around.
"The gravity here feels just like Equestria, I can still do my stuff." Rainbow said as she zips back and forth through the air.
The ponies then see a car drive up to them and come to a stop.
Two humans exit. It's Spike Witwicky and Carly. The car itself transforms, and reveals itself to be Wheeljack.
"Optimus you're back, and not a moment too soon!" Wheeljack says to his leader.
He then notices the rest of the ponies.
"Welcome back Twilight, I see you brought your friends with you. I'd welcome you all to Earth, well, at least what's left of it."
"Wheeljack, what happened while we were gone? I take it the situation has gotten worse?" Optimus asks.
"You don't know the half of it. You all better come in quick."
While the Autobots converse amongst themselves, the rest of the ponies begin to converse with the humans.
"So humans are real after all." Rarity said as she walks up to Carly. "And I do say, you look simply lovely my dear."
"Oh well, thanks. I don't really pay attention to that kind of stuff. I'm not like most girls." Carly responded.
"Hey you're a cute one." Spike Witwicky says as he tries to pet Fluttershy.
But Fluttershy, in a reflex, grabs the human, and flips him over her shoulder.
"OH NO! I'm sooo terribly sorry! It was a reflex." Fluttershy said in an apologizing tone.
"Hey......Umm......Don't worry about it." He replied while groaning in pain.
"I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! I'M ACTUALLY ON AN ALIEN WORLD! So do you humans like parties? Because I love parties! What do you have to eat around here? What kind of music do you have? Are you gonna do something cool?" Pinkie said while being her usual hyper ball of energy.
"Pinkie stop that. We need to focus on beating Discord." Twilight told her sternly.
"Awwww." Pinkie said with dissapointment.
"It's best you all head inside now." Wheeljack addressed to the ponies.
Soon, everyone heads into The Ark.
"So while you were gone Optimus, Discord created some citadel in the middle of New York. Heard him call it his Chaos Capital of the World. Anyways, the rest of the Autobots couldn't wait anymore after seeing the strange weather patterns and phenomenons fly out of hand even more. Against orders, they stormed the place. But when they exited, they came back well, I don't know how else to say it, greyed out, and monochromed. Like someone sucked all the color out of them, their personalities too. Now they just stand in front of the citadel, like lifeless statues." Wheeljack explained. "The only ones who weren't affected were the Dinobots for some reason. But Discord snapped his fingers, and trapped them in a snowglobe that he keeps on him. Yeah, I know, weird."
"Same thing happened with the Decepticons. Megatron led a raid on the city. Pretty much all the cons went with him, even Shockwave came all the way from Cybertron to help his master. After the initial assault, only Megatron and Shockwave came back out. All the other Decepticons suffered the same fate as the Autobots. I'm literally the only one left."
"He's corrupted them." Twilight explained. "It's not the first time, as he's done this to us."
The rest of the ponies and Spike the dragon nod in agreement.
"He plays with your mind, exploits your deepest fears and secrets, then mentally breaks you." Twilight said as the bots listen intently.
"This situation has grown more dire since we were off world." Optimus said to the others. "We must get you all to the city and stop him. The Elements of Harmony may be our only hope."
"One more thing Optimus, you're either not gonna believe me, or you're just simply not gonna like it, but Megatron has been hailing Teletraan 1 ever since he returned from his failed attack in New York. I think he wants your help. He keeps saying he wants to specifically talk to you personally." Wheeljack added.
"You can't be serious Wheeljack!" Twilight said to the Autobot. "There's no way we can trust him."
"Siding with the lesser evil is still siding with evil. I'm against it." Ratchet agreed.
"NO WAY!" Ironhide also said.
"I dunno guys, I mean, we may need all the bodies we can throw at this." Spike Witwicky said.
Carly just stayed silent, not knowing what to say for once.
"Absolutely Not!" Ratchet fumed. "What's to stop Megatron from vaporizing us when this is all over?"
"It may be a chance we must take." Optimus said to the rest of the group. "Open the channel. I will speak with Megatron."
Wheeljack activates the comm system on Teletraan 1.
The ponies look on in awe at the equipment. They've never seen anything like it.
"Megatron do you read? Megatron, come in. This is Optimus Prime."
The screen comes on as Megatron's image becomes visible.
"Well, it's about time you called back. Where in blazes were you?"
"Off world searching for a solution, which I believe I now have."
"The ponies have several artifacts to counteract Discord's power. We will be using it to stop him once and for all. But we may need your help in getting to him."
"So be it Prime. As much as I loathe it, I will admit I will require your assistance on this matter as well. Shockwave and I will meet you in the outskirts of New York. But if I find out you're up to something, I will not hesitate to extinguish your spark on the spot. Megatron out."
"Well, that went well." Spike Witwicky said.
"I still don't know if this is a good idea Optimus." Twilight Sparkle said, "How do you know he won't just try to blow you up the minute he sees you?"
"I don't." Optimus flately said.
"Guy sure has an attitude problem." Rainbow said remarking the Decepticon Lord.
"He seems like a big meanie." Fluttershy said while cowering at the prospect of Megatron.
"Maybe if I threw him a party, he'll be friends with us!" Pinkie said in her cheeful manner.
All the Autobots, humans and ponies just stare at her.
