Magical mishaps, moral dilemmas, and multiple contusions -- normal ponies don't have to deal with these things. Too bad Lyle Hartston isn't a "normal" pony. From the normal life of a human to an exciting and hectic life of a pony, Lyle's life is flipped upside down. Things can only get stranger for this brony when he wakes up in Equestria. More surprises await for him as he comes to meet a certain pony by the name of Lyra Heartstrings.

Special thanks to Toni_PWNeroni and ZST6262 for editing and pre-reading.

Damnit, I'm a sucker for Lyra stories And this one has activated the alarm.

Better fave it :D

I'm surprised none of them have seen the resemblance between Lyle and Lyra :unsuresweetie:

Oh noes! Twilight's cracking wise! :pinkiegasp:

And that Lyra bit gave me a little Hnngggg :scootangel:

*shudders at the thought of having to sleep with somepony drooling on him*

Going as Slendermane eh? or an illusionary SlenderMan.

He's gonna give all the other ponies the SPOOKS!

>>1532082 I'm glad you like it. :pinkiehappy:

nice pony with a kind hard....What.

I hope you meant heart otherwise...ew.

On the plus side, if Luna waits about, oh, 20 years or and Lyle is still there, dating can commence.

>>1544423 Ha ha. Whoops. When you write for 6 hours straight, it's kinda hard to notice grammatical/spelling errors.:twilightblush:

oh god this is amasing

#30 · 110w, 5d ago · · · The Bees ·

The part with the bees reminded me of left 4 dead. In the first part of the no mercy campaign my friend and I would always run away from the other 2 survivors, set of the car alarm and sit and listen to their panicked yells as they were eaten by a massive horde of zombies....good times.

Oh on a reread of this i noticed.

got chased my timberwolves

[got chased by timberwolves] still good though.:twilightsheepish:

it is now 2:16 A.M. haven't slept in 24 hours:ajsleepy:

Zach u read my mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great fic so far. Just noticed one thing, you (I'm assuming accidentally) switched to second person in the chapter "First Encounter"

"I'm from America, "you answered back, even though you knew she most likely didn't know where America was or where your entire world was.

Not a big deal. Just a little something that gave me pause. Thought i'd inform ya. Now to continue reading this great story! You deserve an internet cookie and a up rating for this story. Looking forward to reading the rest.

Ok, one problem:

How can he be so good at magic if he's been a pony only for a few days:ajbemused:

Either this burglar didn't know I was sleeping in this room or he is probably the world's most retarded burglar to have ever existed.

What about the burglar who was caught masterbating in the house of the person he was robbing to the person he was robbing's computer.

Gotta go. Gotta go. Gotta go fast like Sanic.

What is this 'Sanic' you speak off.
