That you for all of the positive feedback. The number one request that I get is to make my chapters longer. So I will! Random quote: “BONK”-Scout.
Uhhhh, what happened? I think, not yet able to form words. Everything still looks black, as I lack the strength to open my eyes, though my hearing still seems to work, as I begin to pick up voices.
“Do you think its okay?” I hear a soft voice say.
Oh yeah, that’s right, I’m in Equestria , I think, mentally facepalming, Pinkie surprised me and I must’ve passed out, but where am I now? The surface I’m laying on doesn’t feel anything like grass (Or a surgical bed, thank god). It feels more like wood, meaning that I must be in one of their houses. The fact that they trust me enough to let me into one of their houses makes me feel a bit better.
“Ah’m sure it’ll be fine, sugarcube,” I hear Applejack say reassuringly, “It just got surprised, I’m sure it’ll wake up soon.”
“I sure hope so,” Rainbow Dash says, sounding less upbeat than usual, “I already knocked him out once today, I hope he’ll forgive Pinkie.”
Of course I’ll forgive Pinkie, duh. I’m just glad that she isn’t trying to bake everypony into tasty treats. I hope Pinkie doesn’t feel bad about making me pass out. Wait, she’s Pinkie Pie, she barley ever feels bad, and what I did definitely wasn’t enough to create Pinkamena. Now that I feel better, I can sense some of my strength returning. I test my muscles, causing one of my legs to twitch slightly. This elicits a gasp from everypony.
“Oh boy! This is so cool!” I hear Pinkie say in an exited voice.
I’m guessing that the rest of the mane six were holding their breath. I twitch again, this time in my arms. I hear everypony step back. Now that my strength had almost fully returned, I can try to do more than just twitch. Well, here I go.
I open my eyes, eliciting another gasp from everypony. Everything is blurry, but I can confirm that I am inside a building.
“Danny! You’re awake!” I hear Dash say in a surprised voice.
My vision begins to clear up; I now can confirm that I am in Twilight’s house. I look up and notice Dash standing right over me. She didn’t leave my side, wow. I guess she really is loyal, loyal to her friends. But that means I am her friend.
“Hey Dash. Yeah I’m awake.” I say as I begin to get up.
I decide not to stand up, as it may intimidate the ponies, so I just sit down on the floor.
“Pinkie didn’t mean to scare you,” Dash explains, “She was just being, well, Pinkie.”
“Its fine, all is forgiven,” I say, eager to relieve any tension within the room, “I don’t hold grudges over stupid little accidents.”
“Awesome!” Dash says with a smile across her face. I look over to the other five, who also look glad and relieved. Applejack still looks wary, but that can be expected.
“ Are you going to introduce me to your friends?” I ask, a smile starting to form on my face.
“Oh, right!” Dash exclaims, “Girls, this is Danny, and even though he may look scary, he’s actually pretty cool.”
I decide to take over from Dash after she pauses. I have to admit, I am really fucking nervous. I need to make a good first impression on everypony here. I really can’t blow it, as this is my new world and these are my new neighbors. And hopefully, my new friends.
“Hey, I’m Danny Walters; you can just call me Danny though. I’m a human from the planet Earth and I have no idea how I got here.”
I notice the ponies look more confused now, but at the same time, they look much calmer.
“Wait a minute,” Twilight pipes up, “What do you mean when you say you have no idea how you got here? How is that possible? By the way, my name’s Twilight Sparkle.”
“Well, Twilight,” I begin to explain what little I can, “Last night I went to bed, and this morning I woke up, had breakfast, went outside, and I was in Equestria. My house is still here, and all of the items inside are intact, but this makes no more sense to me than it does to you.”
The ponies seem less confused, but there is nothing more that I can explain.
“I really want to forget about my world, it wasn’t that great of a place. I just want to make some friends here and be accepted.”
“Well you’ve already made one friend” Dash says, smiling. I return the smile, feeling happier than I have in a while.
“What do ya’ll mean, you’re world wasn’t that great?” Applejack asks me. Aw, fuck. Shit just got heavy.
“Well, this might be hard for you ponies to comprehend, but most people in my world are assholes. Meaning that some of them will gladly screw a friend over for some money, others will lie though their teeth to achieve selfish goals, Hell, some of them will even walk right passed someone who is getting the shit beaten out of them and not even try to help.”
All six ponies look horrified, and haven’t even gotten started yet. I decide that I’m not gonna go into anything else today; I don’t want to scare them or corrupt their minds.
“Now I could tell you everything now, but some of the stuff in my world, I don’t want to talk about yet.” I say, thinking of topics such as war, famine, and Detroit, “Instead, I’m going to tell you about the most mind-blowingly awesome aspect of my world: Technology.”
Everypony looks confused, yet again. I’d better get used to that.
“Okay, ponies can do magic, right?” I ask, inciting several nods, “Well, humans can’t. There are no unicorn humans or pegasus humans, there are just humans. We don’t have any special talents to get us by, like flying, breathing fire, or magic. We do, however, have one thing that makes us awesome, and that thing is creativity. Over the course of our existence, we have developed technology that makes us a truly amazing species.”
“Give us an example of this technology”, Twilight requests, moving closer to me.
“One example is this,” I say as I show them my mp3 player, “My mp3 player.”
“What does it do”, Twilight asks in a confused voice.
“It holds music,” I answer, “Thousands of hours of music. That music can be listened to through these earbuds, or not.”
“Wow, thousands of hours,” Twilight says, amazed at the sheer volume, “Do you mind if I listen?”
“No, but I need to choose the song. Some of the songs aren’t really, um, good for you, they swear a lot and stuff.”
“Oh, sure”, Twilight agrees as I choose a song.
Okay, think. What song, what song? Aha! Bangduck is always good! I think, flipping through my electronic songs.
“This song is called Bangduck, it’s really cool, just listen.” I say pressing play.
At first, everypony looked confused, but thirty seconds in, when the first layer was added, Pinkie started bobbing her head. When the beat dropped, even Fluttershy started bobbing her head. Needless to say, they enjoyed the song.
“That was pretty, cool, Danny, how do make those sounds, though?” Twilight asks, mystified.
“They use technology and stuff.” I reply, eager to progress this conversation. Everypony seems to accept this answer, and I begin to move on.
“Wait, how long was I out?” I ask, the question suddenly popping into my head.
“Um, you were out for about fourteen hours.” Fluttershy tells me.
“Shit! Fourteen hours!” Everypony cringes when I swear.
“Oh well, not like I missed anything.” I conclude, “I still don’t know some of your names, care to introduce yourselves?”
“Sorry, I’m Fluttershy. I tried to fix some of your bruises, if that’s okay.” I hear the yellow pony say in a whispering tone.
“Thanks, Fluttershy, and nice to meet you.” I say with a smile, trying to be as unintimidating as possible.
“Ah’m Applejack, I run Sweet Apple Acres with mah brother Big Macintosh. Ah hope we can be friends.” Applejack says in a kind voice.
“I’m sure we will, Applejack. I love Apples, so you’ll see a repeat customer of me.” I say with a smile.
“My name is Rarity, and I run the Carousel Boutique. You simply must stop by; I would love some more fashion inspiration.” The white unicorn says.
“I’m sure I could bring a few pictures of fashionable Earth clothing, as I don’t really have any suits to show you.” I tell her, hoping that she doesn’t offer to make any clothing for me, I don’t feel like trying on clothes for four hours.
I brace myself for a Pinkie barrage, and just in time, too.
“Hi! I’m Pinke Pie! We already met before, remember? I was like ‘hi’! Then you were like ‘ahhhhhhh’!” Pinkie says, imitating our previous interaction, “I’m sorry if I scared you, but I was just soooooooooo exited to meet somepony new!”
“I understand, Pinkie.” I say, even though I didn’t understand, nopony could fully understand Pinkie, “I’m just glad that we can start off on a better note now.”
Pinkie then bounced off, probably to plan a surprise party. Like I need more surprises. I turn to the remaining five, who share worried glances.
“Just a head’s up,” Twilight says nervously, “Pinkie’s probably going to throw you a party soon, like she does with everypony that come to Ponyville.”
“Yeah, I had that feeling,” I say, already knowing this information, “At least I can expect to be surprised now.” I finish, smiling.
“Yeah, I guess.” Twilight says, smiling.
I take out my phone and look at the time; 9:00 PM. I should get home soon, I don’t want to intrude.
“Well, I’d best be going home now.” I announce, standing up, “It was nice meeting you all.”
“Goodbye, Danny,” Everypony waves to me as I walk towards the door, “It was nice meeting you too.”
I have to crouch to get through the door, as it was designed with ponies in mind, not humans. As soon as I’m out, I look around. Not seeing any ponies, I decide to head home.
Within no time at all, I had reached the trail that led to where my house was. I pull out my mp3 and put on ‘Strobe’ by Deadmau5. It’s going to be a long walk home, and I have nothing but happiness on my mind.
Wow, that was a long chapter, I hope you liked it. I really have no plan for these events, I just think of them as I write them. From now on, I plan for every chapter to be 1.5k+ words, but that’s just an idea, they may be shorter. Overall, though, I see them getting longer.
