After some grumbling the main six left the room to give Buttercup and Sunset some privacy to talk.
"Uh.. wait I- I can explain! Um.."
"No need for that." Sunset interrupted her.
"I just want to ask you something."
Buttercup began backing away until she bumped against a wall.
"Uh.. you know, I think I really have to go!"
Sunset walked over to her and put a hand on her shoulder to comfort her.
"Calm down ok. It's not like we never had magic on this school before."
Her eyes went wide at that. "What? What do you mean?"
"Are you from equestria?"
Buttercup looked like a fish out of water, mouth opening and closing a few times.
"Wh- Whaaat? I don't know what you mean ehehe um.. I mean.. uh- what is eque-"
"Okay wait let me get this straight" Buttercup and Sunset were sitting on the table in the back of the library laughing their heads off.
"You really stole the magical crown from a princess to take over equestria? That was a horrible idea!"
"Well, duh. I got that now haha. We are all friends now thought. So.. now that I told you MY story, how about YOU tell me YOURS?"
"Hm, I guess that's fair, well you see-"
Suddenly the doors burst open and the main six came in. Rainbow was going straight to the table with her hands waving in the air.
"You guys have been in here alone for FOREVER. What are you talking about!?"
Buttercup and Sunset exchanged some looks until Sunset spoke up. "Well, we talked about equestria."
The other five quickly caught up to them.
"Wait, so.. she really IS a pony?" Twilight asked.
Hearing this, Buttercup stood up and walked some steps towards the group.
"Uh.. yes, I am."
"And she just wanted to tell me how she got here. So if you guys could give us some privacy for just some min-"
"No it's okay Sunset, they can stay if they want to. It's not like they don't know what magic is. So.. I guess I better start with how I got into this world.."
I always was a pretty curious filly. As a born unicorn I always wanted to learn new different things. Especially spells had a huge impact on me. And I was good at it too i guess. I was invited for an audition for Celestia's school for gifted unicorns but I didn't go there. I never really felt the need to show my ability to anyone, so I kept studying on my own.
I really loved learning spells for things, that are a bit supernatural in this world. Teleportation, mind reading, mind control, but I also learned a lot about healing and rapid cell regeneration. It was a lot of fun until there wasn't much to learn anymore. So I tried to find something else.
I stumbled over many different legens, like the mirror pool for example and at one point I read about the portal to this world i guess.
I wanted to find out more so I went to the place the book was telling me. The crystal empire.
It was hard to get to the portal thought. There were guards literally EVERYWHERE so I had to be sneaky. Of course the portal was closed at that time but I found another book about when it'll open again. So I waited and then went through.
The first thing I noticed was that I was a completly different species that I never even heard from before. I obviously freaked out.
But after some time I got used to it. Then I noticed that my magic didn't work. I could never go through two and a half years without my magic so I had to make a plan.
Sunset saw were this was heading so she interrupted her before. "Yeah I wanted to ask about that already. How can you use magic over here? Not even I can use it in this world."
"Well.. magic is different here. It's scattered everywhere. You just can't really feel it because there is so little of it in one place. So you need something to channel it around you."
Buttercup took her bangs between two fingers and held it back. A little juwel was placed on her forehead, held up by a golden chain.
