Chapter 3

The ponies, minus Rarity, penguins, and Marlene arrive at the train station. They get their tickets, and go on aboard.

“How long is this train ride going to take?” Skipper asked

“About an hour.” Twilight said, thinking.

“Can I get a drink then?” Skipper asked, one popping into his hoof.
“Oh, thanks Twilight.” Skipper said.

Discord appears in Skipper's drink. “Hey there Skippy.” Discord said, relaxing in Skippers drink.

“Gah! What are you doing in my drink?” Skipper said, a bit annoyed.

“Hot tub.” Discord said.

“You're really starting to get on my nerves...” Skipper said a bit irked.

“That's kind of what he does Skipper.” Twilight said.

“He reminds me too much of Julien, only this guy is smarter.” Skipper said with a bit of a smirk.

“Trust me, I'm pretty smart.” Discord said.

“Yeah, I can tell.” Skipper said, nodding.

“Not smarter than yours truly though.” Kowalski said, with a huge smirk.

“I'm smarter than you Kowalski.” Twilight said, a bigger smirk on his face.

“Is that so? Have you ever built a shrink ray?” Kowalski asked.

Discord poofs up a shrink ray. “I win!” Discord said, doing his celebratory dance.

“That's not fair! You have to build it!” Kowalski said, with a scowl.

“I did, over 1,000 years ago.” Discord said, smirking.

“You're really starting to annoy me now!” Kowalski said, crossing his hooves.

“Calm down you two.” Twilight said.

“Aww, does Kowalski want a hug?” Fluttershy said. Fluttershy then gives a big hug to Kowalski. “Does that make you feel better?” Fluttershy asked sweetly.

“It... actually does, oddly enough.” Kowalski said, feeling better.

“Glad ta hear it partner.” Applejack said.

“So Skipper, what kind of missions do you guys do? Huh? Huh? You gotta tell me!” Rainbow Dash said excitedly.

“Classified!” Skipper yelled.

“I'll tell her then. We save the world. We've also saved the multiverse once as well.” Pat said.

Skipper slaps the back of Pat's head. “I just said classified!” Skipper said.

“Wow! So you guys are like secret agents then!” Rainbow Dash said excitedly.

“I'm telling her, because it was my fault that whole damn war started in the first place!” Pat said with an angry tone.

“What war?” Rainbow Dash asked.

“Interdimensional war. Called the War across Four Dimensions. Dr. Blowhole teamed up with evil Scuas, pure one owls, and an evil over-muscled dog. I nearly died at the end of the War, due to a battle claw to the face by one of the Pure One owls.” Pat said, his scowl turning to a sad look.

“This war sounded quite serious.” Discord said, turning into a dolphin.
“This Dr. Blowhole sounds like quite the character. My goddess dolphins sure do have smooth skin.” Discord said.

“He does have really smooth skin.” Pat said.

“Skin that's surprisingly pleasant to the touch.” Private adds.

“Hmm… I'll just have to see for myself then when I met him.” Discord said.

“I want to pet the smooth skin dolphin.” Fluttershy squees.

“Indeed, it’s quite smooth and…” Kowalski is stopped suddenly.

“Can we stop talking about how smooth his skin it?” Skipper said, a bit enraged.

“Calm down sugarcube.” Applejack said.

“Don't bother, he's always like this.” Marlene said.

“Alright.” Applejack said.

“Marlene, I love your mane.” Fluttershy said, admiring Marlene’s mane.

“Aw, thanks. I love your mane too, Fluttershy.” Marlene smiles sweetly.

Rico starts to gag, dry heaving with the sweetness between Marlene and Fluttershy.

“What's wrong with Chico?” Pinkie asked.

“Rico.” Kowalski said.

“Rico!” Pinkie exclaimed.

“It's his goo goo gag reflex.” Kowalski said.

“His what?” Twilight asked, looking at Kowalski with a strange look.

“Rico gets sick at signs of affection and love.” Pat said.

"I’ve never heard of anything like that before.” Fluttershy stated in her usual quiet tone.

Rico barfs up a hairbrush.

“Eww! Is that a hairbrush?” Twilight asked.

“Yes. It is clean and sterile. I think Rico likes Fluttershy.” Pat said with a smile.

Fluttershy blushes and giggles a bit.

“What?!” Rico exclaimed, as he began to babble random gibberish that only of course makes sense to the penguins.

“He said that he does like Fluttershy.” Kowalski said with a snicker.

“I did not!” Rico insisted.

“We know you like Fluttershy, Rico, just admit it.” Pat said.

“Blah....” Rico trailed off.

"Don't worry about it.” Fluttershy said.

“Are we almost there?” Skipper said, in a slightly annoyed tone.

“We've got about another half hour.” Twilight stated.

“This is taking too long for me...” Skipper complained.

“Maybe a cupcake will make you feel better.” Pinkie said, giving the sourpuss Skipper a smile

“I highly doubt that....” Skipper said, trailing off.

Pinkie then stuffs a cupcake into Skipper's mouth.

“Hmph!” Skipper eats the cupcake. “Grrr...Hm...mmm! Wow! This is good!” Skipper exclaimed.

“Thanks sir. That was strawberry mango. My newest flavor.” Pinkie said proudly.

“Surprisingly tasty...” Skipper said.

“You looks surprised.” Pinkie stated.

“I'm not really one for cupcakes.” Skipper said.

“Your pudgy belly tells me otherwise.” Pinkie said, stifling a giggle.

“I'm not pudgy! This is all muscle just so you know!” Skipper yelled, blushing hard.

“Sure it is.” Pinkie teased.

“It’s the truth!” Skipper yelled, now blushing even harder.

“Sure, fatty.” Rainbow said, letting out a laugh.

Skipper growls angrily and crosses his flippers.

“Okay, okay. I'm not exactly thin either. Penguins have to get big for the long winter nights.” Pat explained to the ponies.

“That is correct. It also keeps their eggs safe.” Twilight stated.

“Wait… So if they're ponies now, do they still lay eggs?” Pinkie asked.

“I'm pretty sure we would give birth the same way ponies do Pinkie.” Pat stated.

“Oooooooo....and how do ponies give birth?” Pinkie asked.

Twilight covers Pinkie's mouth. “Okay! That's enough on that! So, tell me Kowalski! What kind of inventions do you make?” Twilight asked.

Pat snorts. “Ones that blow up in my face.” Pat said, looking a bit mad.

“Umm, well I've built a machine I called the Love-U-Later before.” Kowalski said.

“Which didn't work.” Marlene said

“It could of!” Kowalski yelled.

“It could of if Marlene was my match...” Skipper said, mumbling to himself.

“What was that skipper?” Marlene asked.

“Uh, nothing! Nothing at all, heh....” Skipper stopped, blushing hard.

“Okay then.” Marlene said.

Not too long after that, the ponies arrive in Canterlot.

“We're here guys.” Twilight said.

Skipper is asleep, drooling, looking like a slob but then wakes up. “Huh? What? We're here?” Skipper asked in a slight stupor.

“Yes, we are in Canterlot.” Twilight stated.

“Finally!” Skipper yelled.

“So why did we come here again?” Private asked.

“Looking for clues.” Twilight said.

“Oooooh! Detective time!” Pinkie yelled, hopping around in her usual happy way.

“And maybe we can get our Cutie Marks that way!” Apple Bloom yelled from behind the group.

All the older pones look behind them and see the Cutie Mark Crusaders.

“Apple Bloom! What in tarnation are you and your friends doing here?” Applejack asked, sounding a bit annoyed.

“We followed you.” Scootaloo stated.

“Who are these kids?” Marlene asked.

“My sister Apple Bloom, Rarity's sister Sweetie Belle, and their friend Scootaloo.” Applejack exclaimed.

“And we're the cutie mark crusaders!” The three fillies exclaimed.

“Why are they called that?” Skipper asked.

“Because it is the name of our group.” Apple Bloom stated.

“Aww!” Private picks them all up and gives them a hug. “They're all so cute like baby ducklings!” Private exclaimed.

“I am not cute!” Scootaloo yelled.

“Put us down!” Sweetie Belle yelled as well.

Private puts the three fillies down. “Sorry, but I can't help it. You're all so adorable!” Private said.

“We know, whoever you are.” Apple Bloom said.

“Oh, right. Girls, this is Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, Private, and Marlene. They're from a different universe.” Twilight said.

“Like the one you went to save your crown Twilight.” Apple Bloom stated.

“Yeah! But in their world their animals like penguins and otters.” Twilight said.

“And humans.” Pat added.

“Don't let Lyra know.” Applejack said.

“Who that?” Rico grunted.

“Blue-green unicorn pony who's obsessed with humans.” Rainbow Dash explained.

“That sounds rather creepy...” Skipper said.

“Tell that to her.” Twilight said, pointing at Lyra, who's at the back of the train car with a white pony with blue and pink mane and tail.

“Well that's.... awkward.” Kowalski said.

“Tell me what?” Lyra said inquisitively.

“Nothing!” Twilight yelled.

“Let’s just go where we need to go shall we?” Marlene asked.

“First, I’ve got to tell princess Celestia what's going on.” Twilight stated.

“I thought you were the princess.” Private said.

“I'm the princess of friendship, but not the leader of Equestria. That is Princess Celestia, who taught me as her number 1 prized pupil.”
Twilight said proudly.

“So if Celestia is the leader, shouldn't she be a queen? Or did she just took the name 'Princess' because it sounds cute?” Skipper asked.

“It's just the way it is here in Equestria.” Twilight said.

“Suuuuuuure it is...” Skipper said.

“Celestia is our supreme ruler, and rises the sun. Luna rises the moon and stars.” Twilight stated to the flat headed pony.

“How many princesses are there in this world?” Skipper asked.

“Four. Me, my sister in law Cadence, Celestia, and Luna.” Twilight said.

“Like I said, just took the name because it’s cute.” Skipper said, a smirk on his face.

“All of us have importance to Equestria.” Twilight stated, a bit annoyed.

“Forget it, let’s just go to cute name Celestia.” Skipper said.

“We are. First, you get to meet my brother.” Twilight said.

“Oh, is he the prince around here?” Private asked the magenta pony.

“Well my brother is married to Princess Cadence. So, yes, he is a prince.” Twilight stated.

“Aww, how adorable!” Private said with a smile.

“I want to get out of this world as soon as possible.” Skipper said, doing a facehoof. “Ow! Darn hard hoof....”

“You may never go home if we can't figure out what is going on.” Twilight stated.

“Then let’s go to that castle!” Skipper yelled.

They arrive at the castle, where Shining Armor is looking out from the tower.

“Twilight! Hey little sister! I'll be right down.” Shining Armor said.

“We'll be waiting BBBFF.” Twilight said, beaming from ear to ear.

As Shining Armor comes down, Rico asks, “BBBFF?”

“Big Brother, Best Friend Forever.”

“That's quite the mouthful right there.” Kowalski said.

“I know.” Twilight said with a smile.

Shining Armor gets outside and hugs Twilight. “How’s my baby sister doing, huh?” Shining Armor asked.

“Pretty good bro. I need some help.” Twilight stated.

“What do you need? And who are those black and white ponies? New friends?” Shining Armor asked.

“You could say that.” Twilight said.

“We were sucked into here by a portal in our world.” Pat stated to Shining.

“What world are you for exactly?” Shining asked.

“A world where humans dominate, and we, penguins there, are just cute and cuddly beings for them.” Pat stated.

“Same, but I'm an otter.” Marlene added.

“Sounds.... interesting? Well, anyways, how can I help getting you back in your world?” Shining asked.

“Teach them how to fight.” Twilight stated.

“Excuse me? Lady, my team knows how to fight!” Skipper said.

“The pony way.” Twilight replied.

“Well my team can fight the PENGUIN way! Show them, team.” Skipper commanded.

“Skipper, we're going to learn the pony way.” Pat stated.

“Negative! We don't need to learn to fight like pretty little sissy ponies.” Skipper said, a bit mad.

Shining Armor puts Skipper in a headlock. “Dude, I'm 10 times tougher than you are.” Shining Armor said.

“Are ya now?” Skipper said, then Judo flipping Shining Armor.

Shining Armor leg drags Skipper to the ground. “I am also the leader of the guard.” Shining Stated.

Skipper jumps back up. “Well I'm the leader of my penguin commando team!” Skipper said, jump kicking Shining Armor in the face.

Shining Armor grabs Skipper's leg and puts it into a leg lock. “I lead the Equestrian Army against our enemies and I'm also a prince.” Shining

Skipper turns his body on his back, and kicks him off. “Ohhhh, a prince of sissy little ponies! I'm soooo scared!” Skipper said, spinning on his head and kicks Shining Armor in the face multiple times like he did to Julien when he had his groove.

Shining Armor puts Skipper into a figure 4 leglock.

“Gah!” Skipper yelled in pain, trying to get out of the lock.

Shining Armor lifts himself up, applying pressure to Skipper's legs.

“What's your name solder?” Shining said.

“Skipper!” Skipper said, trying to escape from the hold, but Shining tightens the pressure.

“Tell me Skipper, do you think you could be a guard?” Shining asked, relaxing the pressure a bit.

Skipper uses all of his strength to flip over the Figure-Four and apply pressure to Shining Armor’s legs. “More than that! I could be the Captain of them!” Skipper yelled, applying more pressure.

“I am the captain of the guards.” Shining calmly stated.

Skipper starts applying pressure to the Figure-Four now. “Then I could become General!” Skipper yelled.

“Sorry, we don't do generals here.” Shining Armor said, reversing the pressure.

“Gah! Well then I'll just have to take your job then will I?” Skipper said with a smirk.

“That will never, ever happen.” Shining Armor said, increasing the pressure on the figure four.

“Um how long is this going to last?” Fluttershy said.

“Well Skipper doesn't know the meaning of the word surrender so, who knows?” Kowalski asked.

Shining Armor switches to a sharpshooter hold.

“Can someone pass the popcorn?” Rainbow Dash asked.

One hour passes, and yet Skipper and Shining Armor is still fighting one another.

Pinkie Pie falls asleep from boredom.

“It seems we have reached an impasse.” Shining Armor said.

“Giving up so easy huh?” Skipper taunted.

“Guys! Can you stop fighting already so we can get to the matter at hand?” Twilight bellowed.

“My sister is right. We're not solving anything by fighting.” Shining Armor said.

“Then our fighting style is just fine!” Skipper yelled.

“Skipper, just a suggestion: Listen to everything that Shining Armor and Twilight says.” Pat said.

“I refuse to take orders from sissy little ponies.” Skipper said.

“Skipper, of all the times to be fat headed, why must you do it now?” Marlene asked, looking pissed.

“I am your superior, so you must take my orders.” Shining Armor stated.

“And why should I?” Skipper asked.

“I can send you to the moon.” Twilight stated seriously.

Skipper raises an eyebrow. “The moon, you're kidding right?” Skipper asked.

“Go ask Princess Luna. Celestia sent her to the moon for 1,000 years.” Twilight stated.

“Grr, fine! But my team and I will keep our penguin fighting style, thank you very much.” Skipper stated.

“Well, you'll need to adapt it.” Shining Armor stated.

“We'll be just fine.” Skipper retorted.

“He's right, you'll need to adapt it to your form now.” Twilight replied.

“My team is always on its toes and ready for a fight.” Skipper stated.

“But you don't have toes!” Pinkie exclaimed.

“It’s a figure of speech...” Skipper stated.

“Good.” Shining Armor said, smiling a bit.

“So what's our next move?” Skipper asked.

“For you to meet the princess.” Twilight replied.

“Then lead the way.” Skipper said.

They all go to the main room of the castle, where Princess Celestia is waiting for them.
“Twilight Sparkle, it’s good to see you.” Princess Celestia said, a smile on her face.

Twilight bows her head. “Princess Celestia, I bring you several ponies that are not of our world.” Twilight stated.

“Is that so? Where are you from then?” Princess Celestia asked, her right eyebrow raised.

“Well... an alternate universe. Our portal malfunctioned and sucked us to here. We think that someone tampered with it, and that whoever
did, is somewhere here in Equestria.” Pat said.

“Do have any leads on who did that?” Celestia asked.

“Well, we're working on that. We think it could be... that changeling queen.” Twilight said.

“No, it’s Dr. Blowhole!” Skipper yelled.

“Dr. Who?” Celestia asked.

“I didn't say a time traveling British doctor, I said Dr. Blowhole!” Skipper yelled.

“I think it's both.” Pat said.

“I didn't know Blowhole was British.” Private said.

“He's not!” Skipper bellowed.

“Then how is he both?” Private asked.

“No. I meant that Chrysalis and Blowhole are doing this.” Pat said.

“But how would have met up already to team up?” Marlene asked.

“It must have something to with the portal.” Kowalski stated, his eyebrow raising.

“Well there hasn't been any word of any attack from Queen Chrysalis.” Celestia admitted to the group.

“Those two must be planning something then. Remember Cadence's wedding Princess.” Twilight pointed out to the group.

“Then let’s go find them, and kick their butts!” Rainbow Dash said.

“Finally! Something that I can agree with these ponies.” Skipper blurted out.

“Calm down. We just need to start searching clues.” Twilight said.

“And just when are we going to find a clue, huh?” Skipper asked with an eyebrow raised.

“We should probably start at the archives.” Twilight stated.

“Archives? Like, a place with books and tons and tons of information?” Kowalski asked.

“Yes. Our Canterlot Archives cover the history of Equestria, from before it was founded to present day.” Celestia stated.

“Meet you there!” Kowalski bellowed, running to the archives.

“Let me know what you find Twilight.” Celestia stated.

“I will do as soon as I find something, princess.” Twilight said, following Kowalski to the archives.

“The rest of you, go help them.” Celestia stated.

“Before I go, did you just take the name princess because it’s cute?” Skipper asked, raising his left eyebrow.

“Skipper, is now really the time for that?” Marlene asked.

“Hey, I just want to know because I don't see a king or queen around here.” Skipper said.

“I took the name princess because I didn't want anyone or myself to have too much power.” Celestia stated.

“Alright, suuuuure. We'll go with that then...” Skipper said.

“Don't anger me.” Celestia said, starting to get mad.

“Oh, princess with an anger problem I see.” Skipper said, smirking.

“Skippa, I don't think you should push her...” Private said.

“Or what? What's a pretty little pony going to do to me?” Skipper teased.

“I put you on the moon for 1,000 years.” Celestia said, now clearly mad.

“Oh I'm sooo scared.” Skipper said.

“Don’t test her patience. She will do it if you piss her off enough.” Princess Luna said, as she walked into the throne room.

“Let me guess, you're another princess?” Skipper asked.

“I'm her sister. I'm suggesting that you stop before you find yourself on the moon.” Luna pleaded.

“Then do it!” Skipper yelled.

“Ohhh no…” Marlene said quietly.

Skipper then disappears into thin air.

“Skippa?!” Private yelled.

Skipper appears on the moon. “Huh....she can send me to the moon.” Skipper said, making a horse noise with his lips. “Well this sucks.”

*** *** *** *** *** *** ***

Back at Ponyville, Rarity has finished Julien's new outfit, and he just loves it.
“Whoa! This looks amazing! I didn't actually think you would make something so nice.” Julien said with his usual jerkiness.

“Why thank you darling. Wait... what you mean by ‘I didn't actually think you would make something so nice.’” Rarity said, looking a bit irritated.

“Well whenever I ask Maurice to make me an outfit, it just looks terrible. So, I'm use to terrible outfits.” Julien said.

"That's a bit mean, don't you think?" Rarity said.

“Well I never said I was a nice king, but I must say, this looks outstanding!” Julien said, blushes a bit.

This causes Rarity to blush a bit.

Spike yanks on Julien's tail. “Hey! King!” Spike yelled.

Julien turns around and looks at Spike. “Oh, it’s the little dragon again. Hello!” Julien said.

“Stay away from Rarity! She's too good for someone like you!” Spike yelled, in a very mad tone.

“Please, no one is too great for the king.” Julien stated.

Spike growls at Julien, as he clinches his claws into fist.

“Okay you two, calm down.” Rarity said.

“He started it.” Spike insisted.

“Me? How outrageous!” Julien said.

“You're the one who's trying to steal Rarity from me!” Spike yelled.

“BOYS!” Rarity yelled angrily.

“Bullspit! You’re the one trying to steal Rarity from me!” Julien yelled.

“She was mine first!” Spike bellowed loudly.

“Well, she is mine now.” Julien stated arrogantly.

“BOYS SHUT UP!” Rarity said with rage.

They both shut up and look at Rarity, feeling bad for what they've said.

Rarity takes back what she made for Julien. “You get nothing until you both chill the buck out.” Rarity said, pushing them out and slamming
the door behind them.

“Ha-ha! You get nothing!” Spike yelled.

“But, Rarity!” Julien pleaded.

“You will have to work out your differences, or neither of you will get anything from me EVER AGAIN!” Rarity bellowed out the window.

“But I don't like him!” Both Julien and Spike yelled back at the same time.

slamming the window shut.

“Great....we'll have to be friends now.” Spike said, not looking very happy.

“If you bow to me, we'll be best friends.” Julien said.


“Oi.” Rarity said, going back to working on dresses.

Meanwhile, outside…

“Then, we shall not being friends.” Julien stated.

“But we have to, for Rarity!” Spike pointed out.

“Alright then, but just for Lady Rarity.” Julien stated, putting out his hoof for a hoof/claw shake.

Spike bumps Julien's hoof with his fist.
“Just no funny business.” Spike stated.
