The behemoth

My Not So Grand Entrance

I heard muttering in front of me. I tried to turn over, but I couldn’t. Perplexed, i opened my eyes and tried to sit up. Upon opening my eyes, I realized that I was in a perfectly human shaped hole, and 11 candy colored horses were looking down at me, scratch that, they’re too short to be horses, they must be ponies. I heard them muttering something, and not being able to move at all, I first looked around saw that three of them were normal, two of them were unicorns, three of them were pegasi, and three of them had wings and horns. Oh, and there was a dragon. It looked like it was a baby dragon.

Bewildered, all I managed to say was, “Hello.” their reaction was priceless. the normal ponies shot about a foot into the air, one pegasi jumped into the clouds, and the others jumped into the nearby bushes. The unicorns screamed and hugged each other, and one of the princesses flashed out of sight. The other two just looked down at me, stoic. the dragon did the same.

“Hello there, my name is Celestia, and you are?” the white one with a horn and wings said.

“I’m James, nice to meet you Celestia. Is there any reason that i can’t seem to move?” I replied. I figured that I was unconscious somewhere, there was no way that I was talking to multicolored ponies with wings and horns, and a baby dragon.

“The story is that when these three fillies over here found you; we of course came to get the unconscious creature that was sitting outside in the middle of nowhere. then when these six ponies came to get you they found out that you had sunk into the ground, and that you were really heavy, and I mean really heavy. So they called me and Luna, the other alicorn you see here, to help get you out of a ditch in the ground. We just arrived, and then you woke up." Celestia explained.

"Huh. I thought I was asleep and this was a really weird dream. Also, why can't I move?"

The purple pony, I guess it was an alicorn, popped back into existence. "That’s my fault. I cast an immobilization spell on you; we can't have a being that heavy just running around town."

"I guess that makes sense. Any chance you could remove that spell?"

"We are going to have to. It will be pretty hard to move you around if we have to rely on magic alone." the purple alicorn lowered her head, and her horn was surrounded in a purplish aura. She finished and moved her head away. "Ok you should be able to move now. Start small, the spell has been in effect for a while." I moved my fingers and quickly figured out everything was normal. I started to stand up and quickly encountered a problem. Big mass plus small area equals a foot going a foot into the ground.

"Well that could be a problem." I said. "Do you have any way to reduce my weight a little bit?" I asked, looking at the three alicorns.

The purple one replied. "I have two ways that we can reduce your weight. Give me one second please." she tilted her head and her horn started to glow. “You should be able to walk now. This is only temporary though. Let’s see if zecora has something she can do about this, potions tend to have a longer lasting effect. She might be able to mix up something." she started off in the direction of a forest. The other 10 ponies started following her, and I pulled my foot out of the ground and followed. The twelve of us made our way into said forest and began to walk far into the tree line. They had all told me their names on the trip. After a bit of walking, we reached a small hut. I had realized that the ponies were about 3ft. so I expected a door to be shorter than a human door too. It was about 4ft, so I had to crawl to get into Zecora's house. When I was inside, I was able to sit up, but to stand I would have had to cut a hole in the roof. The zebra, named Zecora, seemed to always speak in rhymes.

"What is it that I see, but a human sitting before me? To have come here you, must have something that you want me to do." she seemed to ask me.

"Yes, we have a problem. I don't come from this world as you can see, and I seem to weigh a ton here. More precisely, from what Twilight tells me, 10 tons."

"You have a weight problem, I see. Let’s see what I can do for thee." she replied, in an almost mystical voice. I watched entranced as she took out the ingredients for the potion with ease. She quickly started making it, not even realizing twilight's spell was wearing off. It only took a few minutes and I left an indent in the floor by the time she was done. I quickly drank the potion to see if it would work. It did.

"It seems that my potion works, and without any odd quirks. It should have left your odd strength in place, but you should not be too heavy for this place." she gave me the rest of the potion that she made, in bottles that were about the serving size. They would last for a week before I needed to drink another one. It was then Celestia turned to me with the thing that I needed at that time.

"So James, I just realized that you have unnatural strength, and seem to be able to keep a calm head in extremely stressful situations. I also realized that you need a job, and one of my guards just left. Do you want to work as one of my royal guards?"

"Sure, I hope this doesn't offend you, but I was an ancient wars teacher in my world, so I know good battle strategies. This would be a great opportunity to learn how well they work in practice. not that I want to fight, but the whole prospect of seeing the things I’ve been teaching for years put into practice is just... strange." I replied.

Celestia giggled, "Well you won't be put in the commander position right away, but you might work your way up there." so when we reached the edge of the forest, we said our goodbyes and I headed off with the princesses. They had taken the royal sky chariot thing, and we quickly realized that it would be pretty hard for me to get in with her, but we managed to do it somehow. Celestia told me it would take a few hours to get to canterlot, and I settled in for the long ride.
