Sarah's Adventure's in Equestria

by PikachuSkitty

Episode 21: Raptor Mania

I was flying over the clouds on Moonshine with Winter and Storm by my side. Winter and Moonshine were all diving in and out of the clouds warbling happily. "Hehe, I know. What a beautiful day." I said. "What do you say, we see what's going on in Ponyville?"

My dragons agreed and they dove right into the middle of Ponyville and landed in town square.

Huh?... Now this was odd. Where is everypony? The town was completely empty. No pony in sight nor human. "Okay... this is strange." I commented.

"Hello?" I called out. "Anypony there!"


No repsonse.Now I know somethings' wrong. "Where could they all be?" I asked myself. My dragons sniffed the ground and snarled, looking around the area. "Guys? What is it?"


Huh? I looked around for a moment. ..Funny I thought I heard-

"Psst. Sarah."

There it was again. I looked towards Sugarcube Corner and saw Pinkie Pie waved her hoof erratically at me, "Get inside now!" she whispered. Moonshine knocked me onto his back and the three dragons rushed into the store which was dark. "Pinkie, what are you doing alone in the dark?"

"I'm not alone in the dark." Pinkie aswered, turning on the lights to reveal Twilight, Jamie, Applejack, Mason, Carrie, Rainbow, Jack, Nicole, Rantaro, Fluttershy and Rarity. "Okay... what are you all doing in here? And why is the town a ghost town?" I questioned.

"We're hiding." Applejack whimpered.

"Hiding?" I echoed. "Hiding from what?"

"From them." Rainbow said, pointing out the window. I looked out the window and the others crowed around me. Outside were four dinosaurs. But these were no ordinary dinosaurs. These were possibly the smartest dinosaurs that ever lived in the Mesozoic. These were Velociraptors.

The first raptor was bluish-gray skin with a white stripe with metallic blue in the middle going horizontally from her eye orbit, with one side has blue around the eye, while the other side’s stripe stop so at the head, down to the tip of her tail.

The second raptor is a teal color, with no stripes on her back or tail.

The third raptor is green with black vertical stripes running down her back.

And the last raptor is brown with dark blue striping as well as having dark blue around her eyes. The most noticeable trait is the scar on the left side of her muzzle.

I was astonished, "Woah... Velociraptors. Cool!"

"Cool?!" Ren exclaimed.

"They're the most dangerous dinosaurs to have ever lived!" Jamie added.

"We can't have them running around Ponyville!" Twilight added. We all saw the raptors snapping at each other and stopping. They sniffed the ground and turned towards Sugarcube Corner. My friends ducked and hid in the shop while I continued to stare in awe at the creatures. Then I started moving towards the door. "Newbie, what are you doing!" Jack exclaimed.

"Relax, I'm just going to talk with them." I replied calmly.

"Talk?!" Spike exclaimed. He grabbed my pants leg. "You can't talk to them, they'll tear you apart."

"Relax, Spike. Remember, I'm part raptor so I can communicate with them. I'l be fine." I reassured. Spike let go of my pants leg and I walked outside. I approached the four raptors who hissed at me with the one with the blue stripe lowering her body. I made clicking sounds like the raptors.

(0:30 - 0:41)

The raptors stopped hissing and tilted their heads at me. I held out my hand to the lead raptor. She slowly walked towards me, making the clicking sounds I did to her and her pack. "That's it." I whispered. "I'm not gonna hurt you." Her snout was mere inches away from me when...

a beam of magic came between me and the raptor. The raptors roared and hissed as Equestria guards came onto the scene and surrounded the pack. "What are you doing?! Back up!" I cried.

"No way, human. These beats are dangerous and must be eliminated." one guard said.

Eliminated? No way. "You can't do that!" The raptors roared and dashed towards one of the unicorn guards. He fired his magic but it bounced off the raptors' scales and they all leaped over the guard and were out of sight in seconds. The guards growled, "Look at what you've done!" the lead guard, who was a gray, burly stallion with a scar over his left eye. "You let them get away!"

"I was close to earning their trust until you show up." I stated.

"Please. Those monsters cannot be tamed." the leader claimed.

"Sarah!" a voice came. I turned and saw Ren and the others coming towards me. "Are you alright?" Fluttershy asked.

"Yes, I'm alright, but this guy wants to kill the four Velociraptors." I growled.

"So, let them." Rantaro stated, much to my horror.

"What?!" I exclaimed.

"Sarah, Velociraptors are extremely dangerous dinosaurs. They can't be running around here where they could kill anypony." Twilight said.

"I'm sorry Sarah, but I have to say the honest truth. These Velociraptors are nothing but a bunch of monsters." Applejack said.

"Monsters?! That's a bit hash don't you think?" I asked.

"No, I do not." Applejack stated. Music began playing and we both started singing.

Those Velociraptors will give you a fright,
Eating ponies both day and night.
They rest for a minute, maybe three,
Then they're eatin' every pony they can see and find.
They don't care about nada, not zilch, no, nothin'.
'Cept bringin' about out total destruction.

Now wait just a minute, there's another side to this,
And if I did not defend them, then I would be remiss.
Those four are harmless with someones' trust.
They care for their own just like we ponies do.

Oh, give me a break, you're bein' too kind.
These creatures have a one-track mind.
Our country is not their restaurant.
But do they ever think what others may want?
No! They don't! And that is just a fact.
These things, they simply don't know how to act.

That's where I have to disagree.
They're loyal to their family.
Keep them safe from threat and harm

You see one comin', you'd better run and hide!
They're big and ugly and mean as sin.
Will ya look at the state our home are in?

They won't cause
Once I gain the packs' trust.

They've turned my life to a total disaster!

(Rarity and Kaede)
Well, I for one don't have a doubt.
These vermin must be stamped right out.

(Rainbow Dash and Jack)
I second that, they've got to go.
These things, they've got to hit the road.

It comes down to just one simple fact
They've crossed the line.
It's time to fight them back!

(All, except Me)
Stop the pack! Stop the pack!
Make them go and not come back!
Stop the pack! Stop the pack!
Make them go and not come back!
Stop the pack! Stop the pack!
Make them go and not come back!

Yes, it comes down to just one simple fact.
They've crossed the line.
It's time that we attack!

"Good, now that we're all on the same page. Let's go get those raptors." the lead guard said. My friends nodded and went off with the guard in the direction the Velociraptors went in, leaving me feeling a little brokenhearted.

Now I was sitting in Ponyville Park with my dragons, feeling dejected. I know Velociraptors have a bad reputation, but I wanted to give them a chance and be my friends like I did with Discord and Pyrite. Speaking of which, "oh now what's my little friend doing out here all alone?" Discord asked, appearing in the air.

"Sarah, what are you doing here?" Pyrite asked, flying down to me.

"Oh... it's just there are some Velociraptors running around and everybody wants to kill them cause they think they'll kill everypony cause of their reputation. I want to give them a chance and befriend them like I did with you two." I explained.

"Well this may be your chance." Discord said, pointing behind me. I turned and saw the four raptors coming out of the bursh and towards me. My heart gave a small leap of joy. I got off of the bench and slowly approached the raptor pack. "Hey girls... remember me." I held out my hand and the lead raptor sniffed it, recognizing my scent. The lead raptor made clicking sounds and moved her nose towards me. Finally, her snout touched my hand and I began rubbing her snout.

I gained her trust.

The other three raptors came around me and started to nuzzle me. Moonshine, Winter and Storm approached the raptors and make warbling sounds and the raptors made the clicking sounds back at them. I smiled at them. The lead raptor turned to me and barked at me, "What? There's something bigger around here?"

The lead raptor nodded. "You and your sisters were tracking it?"

She nodded again but before I could ask her anything else, the royal guards came charging out of nowhere with their horns drawn. The raptors roared loudly and leaped over the bench, bashing a few guards out of their way. Ren and the others showed up and they leaped over the gang and dashed off again, out of sight.

"Dammit! We're never gonna catch them!" Jack exclaimed in anger.

"They are the least of your worries." I said.

"Oh really?" The lead guard mocked. "Because the raptors said there's a bigger, more deadlier raptor that's out here." I replied.

Everyone's eyes widened a little. "More deadly, Please newbie. Nothing is more dangerous than those brats." Jack said.

"Oh really then tell that to the hybrid dinosaur behind you." I replied, pointing behind Jack.

He slowly turned around and was face-to-face with a hybrid that was 10.7 feet high and 24 feet long. It sports toe claws that are similar to those of a Velociraptor, and its color is primarily black with a golden-yellow streak running from the base of the neck to its tail, which bears strong resemblance to lead raptors' metallic blue streak. This hybrid possesses hands with four fingers; an opposable thumb and three main digits.

The shape of its head bears a resemblance to that of a Tyrannosaurus rex, and it has a sprinkled red mark around the eye orbit. The skin around its mouth is flaky and peeling away in some areas, possibly a result of genetic instabilities inherited from the source materials used to create it. Its mouth is also sickly-looking, with ragged teeth.

The lead raptor told me it's name: Indoraptor.

The Indoraptor towered over Jack and roared at him. Jack immediately dashed away as did Twilight and everybody else and the Indoraptor chased after them. "Guys!" I cried. Me, Pyrite, Discord and my dragons chased after the hybrid dinosaur. The Indoraptor cornered everyone in a large alleyway. The unicorn guards blasted it with their magic but, just like with the Velociraptors, it's scales reflected the magic. The Indoraptor towered over everyone. "Umm, any ideas?" Ren whimpered.

"I got nothin." Applejack added.

Me, my dragons, Pyrite and Discord appeared at the mouth of the alley. "Guys!" I cried.

The Indoraptor moved closer to them, ready to attack when the Velociraptors came out of nowhere and pounced onto the Indoraptors back. The Indoraptor was at least twice the size of the four raptors. The Indoraptor tossed around, trying to throw the four raptors off, but the Velociraptors sharp claws helped them hold onto the Indoraptor. The four raptors bit into the hybrid dinosaurs skin and backed off. The Indoraptor turned to face them with it's claws drawn and teeth baring.

The Indoraptor charged at us and we all separated. The lead raptor pounced on the hybrid, going for the neck, but the hybrid grabbed her and threw her onto the ground. The lead raptor got up and pounced on it again, this time with the other raptors joining in. Ren, all my friends and the guards came out of the alleyway and came over to me.

We watched as the four raptors poked and prodded the Indoraptor. Finally, the lead raptor scratched the Indoraptor below the eye, leaving three gaping wounds. The Indoraptor roared in extreme pain and decided its had enough. It turned tail and ran away. The four raptors then turned to us and made the clicking sounds once again. I grinned at them, "Good girls."

"I don't get it." Jamie said. "Why did they... save us?"

The lead raptor barked at him, "She says their only target was the Indoraptor, not anything else. They couldn't let it roam around where it could kill anybody."

Everybody was shocked and feeling a bit guilty. "Looks like someone was too quick to judge again." Discord said, floating above everyone.

"What do you want, Discord?" Rainbow asked annoyed.

"Oh nothing, just saying that every time Sarah seems to find someone or something that either has a bad rap or past, she always manages to make them turn over a new leaf, while her friends automatically assume they're bad news without giving them a chance."

My friends let Discords' words sink and as much as they didn't want to admit it... he was right.

"Guess we haven't been the most supportive friends for Sarah, huh?" Ren admitted, rubbing the back of his head.

"Guess we should have given her the benefit of the doubt." Fluttershy said.

"Sorry Sarah." Rainbow apologized.

"It's okay, guys." I stated. "I'm just glad the raptors are okay."

"From now on, we'll give any new friend of yours whether good or bad a chance at friendship." Twilight said.

I grinned at them. "Soo... what are you gonna do with these four now?" Rainbow questioned.

"We can't possibly let them stay in your room. That's already full." Ren said.

"I think my dad may have a solution for that." I grinned.

"So what are you gonna name them?" Carrie asked.

"Hmm... I think Blue, Delta, Charlie and Echo." The raptors made clicking sounds, meaning they liked their new names. Blue came up to me and nuzzled my cheek. "Hehehe, awww." The other three raptors did the same while my friends and the guards watched with smiling faces.
