Chapter 18: Doctor Whom?
(Sorry guys there was some confusion going on. It turns out the Professor is the female name for the Doctor. When I (not knowing this) accidently thought of a random name for the Doctor that he could call himself I thought Professor would be a good name. I apologize for the confusion. His name is now Mr. Time Turner Whooves. Again I’m sorry for the confusion)
“Ok. We’ll wake up the Doctor. But first we got to find out where we are.” Said Twilight.
“Uh-huh.” The rest of the group nodded in agreement. They navigated the twist and turns of the Dalek ship. Finally they came to the front door. They where blinded by the light of time day. Oh wait that was princess Celestia. Wait princess Celestia!?
“Princess what are you doing here?” asked Twilight.
“I think the better question would be ‘what are you doing here?’ This is the secret base Acer 51. The secret headquarters of the Colts in black.”
“Wait we’re in THE Acer 51?” said Applejack and Rainbow Dash together.
“Oh that makes sense. The Colts in Black must have brought Zek’s ship here.” Said Twilight
“What’s Acer 51?” Asked Fluttershy.
“It’s where the Equestrian army keeps all it’s alien stuff.” Said Rainbow Dash.
“I’ll be a darned. Uncle Badapple was right, and we thought he was crazy.” Said Applejack.
“Could somepony please tell me how you, and the rest of Ponyville managed to get inside a secret base with magical shields, highly trained guards, into the most secret room in the base?”
“Princess, please I’ll explain. Quickly. It all started at the meteor shower…”
“And that’s the whole story.” Finished Twilight.
“Twilight you shouldn’t have kept the Dalek secret from me. Now we’re almost defenseless.” Said the Princess.
“I’m sorry Princess.”
“It’s too late for that. I’m afraid we are doomed.” Said Celestia.
“Don’t give up yet. We’re going to find someone named the Doctor.” Said Twilight.
“DOCTOR DID YOU SAY THE DOCTOR! The Doctor?” Said Celestia who grabbed Twilight and shook her.”
“Um, yeah. Do you know him?” Said Twilight
“Um, yeah I know him.” Said Celestia regaining her composure. “If you can find him. We might just stand a chance.”
“Why, who is he?” asked Twilight
“Good question. You should ask him that when you find him. I want to know what he says. Get some of those black suits from the closet right over there. They will help you sneak around unnoticed. There are also some tools in their pockets. I’ll get started… erasing everyponies memories… this might take a while. You girls go to Ponyville and see if you can find the Doctor. I’ll head to Canterlot and prepare for the worse. Now get going. Quickly. Ponyville is only a few miles south of this location.
Twilight and the rest of the mane four headed south towards Ponyville. In their new Colts in Black suits.
Zek was discussing strategy with Lez.
“We must keep at least five Daleks in Ponyville to guard the mines.” Said Zek. “I BET THAT THE FIFTH DALEK WILL COME OUT OF MY HALF OF THE ARMY RIGHT? WE WILL HAVE SIX.”
“Five will be plenty-“
“ZEK YOU WILL NOT ARGUE WITH ME ANYMORE.”
“Why not?” Asked Zek
“BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT YOU DID WITH THE GUNS.”
Zek was taken aback. Lez knew about his trick with the guns. The Daleks would know Zek as a traitor.
YOU WHERE NEVER GOOD AT GENOCIDE.” Said Lez. “YOU WOULD ALWAYS WIN, BUT YOU END UP SPARING A FEW. DO NOT WORRY I WILL NOT TELL. AS LONG AS YOU OBEY MY ORDERS.” Ah so that’s how it’s going to be. Lez had decided to use this as black mail.
“SO THERE WILL BE SIX DALEKS GUARDING PONYVILLE?” Said Lez
Zek was silent for a moment and then said. “I obey.”
“GOOD.” Said Lez.
Zek turned around to face his troops. “YOU SIX RIGHT THERE YOU WILL STAY AND GUARD PONVILLE. YOU ARE INCHARGE.”
“WE OBEY.” Said the six Daleks. Zek couldn’t stop worrying about Twilight, Fluttershy and the others. Would they be a match for six Daleks?
Pinkie Pie was all packed. She had very carefully strapped the watch to a chain and hung it around her neck. It had taken all of Pinkie’s will power not to open he watch. After all who could resist a surprise? The rest of her stuff she had put into her backpack. She had released gummy into the sewers of Ponyville where he would hopefully be safe. Pinkie wondered if she should take that other fobs watch. It didn’t call for her like the one on her neck did but it might still be important. She went to open her closet to take it out when, a brown colored colt with an hourglass cutie mark, fell out of it.
“Ahhh please don’t hurt me!” Said the Colt.
Pinkie recognized the Mr. Whooves right away. After all she knew everyone in ponyville.
“Oh hi Doctor, what where you doing taking a nap in my closet!?” Said Pinkie Pie exited to see another pony again.
“I am not a Doctor. I am a Mr. Whooves .” Snapped Mr. Whooves.”
“Oh, sorry it’s not like me to get names wrong.” Said Pinkie.
“Well keep it down. We don’t go alerting any of those… things. ”
“OKEY DOKIE LOKEY!” Said Pinkie Pie loudly.
“ALERT I HEARD A NOISE.” Said one of the two Daleks that happened to patrolling outside.
“IT MUST BE A PONY. SEEK. LOCATE. DESTROY. “ Said the second Dalek.
“I OBEY.” Said the first Dalek.
“Run!” Yelled Mr. Time Turner. He ran out the back door to Sugar Cube Corner and into an alley. Oh no thought Pinkie Pie. That’s a dead end. The first Dalek had the Mr. Whooves whooves cornered.
Pinkie Pie tried to attack the Dalek. She punched it from behind. However since her hooves are soft and Dalek armor is hard it did nothing. The Dalek stopped chasing Time Turner and turned to face Pinkie.
“Uh-oh.” Said Pinkie Pie. She backed away slowly but stopped when she hit a wall.”
“WELL DONE.” Said the second Dalek. “I WILL FINISH THE JOB.” He aimed his death ray at Pinkie Pie. She couldn’t dodge the death ray at this close range. So she did what Caan had told her to do only in emergencies. She touched the watch.
A jolt ran thought the Pinkies body as she became possessed. A toothy grin appeared on her face.
“Well well well. If it isn’t my old friends the Daleks. How are you doing?” said Pinkie. She burst into laughter. The Dalek that was about to shoot her stopped for a second.
“HOW DID YOU KNOW WE WHERE DALEKS?” Said the one that was going to shoot her.
“Well actually it’s just a lucky guess.” She started to laugh again.
“ENOUGH I WILL EXTERMNATE YOU!” “EXTERM-“
“Wait hold on a second. Why are you the one that gets to kill me?” Wasn’t it the other Dalek that heard us in the room? Wasn’t it him that tracked us down?”
“SHE HAS A POINT I SHOULD HAVE THE GLORY OF THE KILL!” Said the first Dalek angrily.
“YOU DID IT UNDER MY ORDERS.” Said the second Dalek. Meanwhile while they were arguing the Mr. Whooves whooves had grabbed a live power line, cut it and was sneaking up behind the Dalek, power cables in hand.
“YOU ARE NOT MY LEADER!” Said the first Dalek. I WILL TAKE THE GLORY OF-”
The Mr. Whooves took the power cable and touched them against the Dalek. It made a crackling noise and the Dalek died instantly of electrocution. The other Dalek started to turn towards Time Turner.
“ALERT! ALERT! I AM UNDER ATTACK.” the Dalek turned to try to get a shot of at Whooves, but he was to fast and took the electric cable strait to the Dalek.
“AHHHH.” Screamed the Dalek as it died. Pinkie let go of the watch. Her eyes glazed over and she reverted back to her normal self.
“Wow, did I do that?” asked Pinkie looking at the dead Daleks in awe.
“No, we both did it together” said the Mr. Whooves. “We make a great team. Now help me hide these Daleks before the others notice they’re gone. Pinkie pie thought for a second.
“Nope, I have a better idea....” said Pinkie Pie smiling.
The Mane Four had arrived at Ponyville hiding out of sight dressed in their new black suits. They had expected it to be swarming with Daleks, but as far as they could tell there where only six Daleks. Twilight brought the team together to think of a plan.
“Ok guys here’s the plan we sneak in, grab the Mr. Whooves and get him to open the watch.” Said Twilight.
“Why don’t we just go in swinging?” Said Rainbow Dash. We can take them. Look at our team. We got Twilight with her spells, Applejack with her apple bucking skills, me, and Fluttershy with her… cheering skills.
“Yay.” Said Fluttershy.
“Rainbow dash we’re outnumbered we can’t just go in swinging. Somepony will die.” said Twilight Sparkle.
“She’s right sugar cube.” Said Applejack. We don’t got hay’s chance on a dinner plate of beating them head on.
“Alright operation sneak in and find the Doctor said Twilight is a go. Move out team.”
The Dalek left in charge was waiting for his patrol to come back. They where late. Something was wrong. Just then the two Daleks came around the corner.
“WHY ARE YOU LATE?” Asked the Dalek.
“We just… WE JUST GOT COUGHT UP IN TRAFFIC.” Said one of the Daleks.
“WHAT TRAFFIC? WE ARE THE ONLY ONES HERE!”
“IT WAS… THE SQUIRREL TRAFFIC.” Said the other one.
“SQUIRREL TRAFFIC?” Said the commander.
“YEAH THERE ARE A LOT AROUND THIS TIME A DAY.”
The head Dalek looked at the two. They had to be lying. But he couldn’t say for sure because Daleks have the universe’s best poker faces.
“NEXT TIME EXTERMINATE THEM.” Said the lead Dalek.
“YES SIR.” Said the other two Daleks. That was weird, thought the Dalek commander. These Dalek are speaking funny. However he had other things on his mind right now.
“NOW COME OVER HERE AND TAKE A LOOK BEHIND THAT TREE.” Said the commanding Dalek. The two Daleks came over to take a look. One of them bumped into the commander.
“Oops sorry.” Said the Dalek. This Dalek is an idiot. First he gets here slow and then he bumps into him! He would report him to have him checked latter.
"SEE BEHIND THAT TREE? THERE ARE FOUR PONIES THERE. THEY THINK THAT THEY ARE HIDDEN, WE WILL GO OVER THERE NOW…
“FREEZE.” The mane four looked up and saw that they were surrounded by three Daleks. “YOU WILL NOT MOVE.”
This is it. Thought Fluttershy. They were going to kill us for sure.
“ONE IS A UNICORN.” Said the commander. “SAVE HER FOR THE MINE. EXTERMINATE THE REST.” The two Daleks under him looked at each other and then said.
“We do not obey.”
“WHAT?” Said the commander Dalek.
The two Daleks released their death rays that hit the commander Dalek causing him to explode.
“What the hay they just killed each other!” Said Applejack.
“Oh my…” Said Fluttershy
“What kinds of sickos kill their own teammates!” Said Rainbow Dash.
One of the Daleks looked directly at the group as if it was going to shoot them. And then it started laughing.
“Ha ah aha ha ha. That was awesome.”
The Dalek head swung open and a pink pony popped out.
“Hi ya girls, did you miss me?”
“Pinkie Pie!?” Said all four of them together.
They exchanged a group hug involving a lot of happy laugher. Finally Twilight asked “Who is in the other Dalek?” Mr. Clock Work Whooves climbed out.
He asked “How are you girls still alive? I saw you girls get shot.”
“Never mind that Mr. Whooves we’ve been looking for you.” Said Twilight
“Me why?” asked the Mr. Whooves.
“We have to get you to open this fobs watch.”
Pinkie’s eyes perked up when she heard the words “fobs watch.”
“A watch? Why is that important.”
Well according to…(she didn’t want to say Zek.) the Princess if you open this watch you’ll become someone named the
“Huh what?” Asked Time Turner. “My name is Mr. Time Turner Whooves, not Doctor.”
“Well actually you are kinda like his secret identity.” Said Applejack
“But that’s impossible I’ve been Time Turner my whole life.” Said the Mr. Whooves. “I went to the Academy…”
“Who was in your class?” Demanded Rainbow Dash.
“I… don’t.-” Started the Mr. Whooves.
“Who were your teachers? What did you do in your free time?” Demanded
“I… I… don’t know.” Said the Mr. Whooves.
“See they are fake memories! You’re a fake pony.”
“N-no I can’t be… I don’t want to be.” Said the Mr. Whooves beginning to sob.
“I don’t want to be somepony else! I want to be me! not some doctor!” sobbed the Mr. Whooves.
“Why does that matter? You’re not even real it doesn’t matter what you want. Twilight make him open the watch.”
Twilight didn’t know what to do. She never thought what of what she would do if he didn’t want to become the Doctor. “I can’t make him do it.” said Twilight.
“Why not he’s not even real!” said Rainbow.
“Rainbow think of it from his prospective...” Started Twilight.
While Twilight and Rainbow Dash argued and Pinkie Pie stared at her fob watch deep in thought. Fluttershy went to talk to the Mr. Whooves.
“Mr. Whooves …” said Fluttershy.
“Go away!” Said the Mr. Whooves.
“I know this is hard for you. But you can save a lot of good Ponies if you open that watch.”
“You’re asking me to die?” Said the Mr. Whooves.
“Yes. I know this isn’t easy but you’re the only one who can do it. You’re the only one who can save Equestria. You can be a hero.”
“Yes.” The Mr. Whooves thought about it long and hard.
“I’ll do it.” He said summoning up his courage.
“Twilight give me the watch.” He said.
“Are you sure?” asked Twilight
“I’m positive.” Twilight handed him the watch.
“I only ask one thing.” Said the Mr. Whooves. “Never forget me.”
“We won’t forget.” Said Twilight.
“Alrighty, here I go.” He opened a watch. A whirlwind of dust and light spilled over the Mr. Whooves engulfing him in light. And then it stopped. Leaving the Mr. Whooves standing there.
“Doctor. Doctor is that you?” asked Twilight in anticipation.
“No, I’m still me. I’m still me! Whew!” Said the Mr. Whooves.
“I don’t understand you should be the Doctor” said Applejack confused.
A letter fell out of the watch.
“Huh what’s this.” Said the Mr. Whooves reaching down to pick up the paper. It read. In sloppy letters it started with these words.
Good job on finding the Mr. Whooves, but sorry Mane Six. This pony is not the Doctor…
well not the one you're looking for anyway...
