When a portal is opened between two otherwise disconnected worlds, a few reliable spells go a little crazy- and result in a series of letter-bearing owls passing through the portal. Several times.

What could possibly go wrong?

Chapters (203)

Twilight may have had a bit too much to drink one night and accidentally brought a human named Arc from Earth to Equestria. They have much to teach one another! That is... if they will accept him into their society. Time will tell if humans and ponies can truly live together in harmony!


This is quite a long story I originally wrote for my wife as a Christmas present two years ago. Work on it has continued over the past year, and just recently hit 1,000,000 words! I'll upload it chapter by chapter as fast as I can translate them! The Equestrian Odyssey contains many characters from the show and comics, as well as a number of original characters I dreamed up to fill various roles. I hope you enjoy the first volume of my first ever story as much as my wife and I did!

Chapters (6)

This story is a sequel to Grogar’s Endgame

After two years of peace and happiness in Equestria since the defeat of Grogar, the Decepticons now direct their focus on a new target: earth. Shockwave rises from the shadows to create a new army to conquer earth and its inhabitants and to convert earth’s energy to energon to restore Cybertron.

Chapters (8)

A mission ends with Fluttershy being revealed as a changeling. The Mane 6 pause on the walk back home to discuss this development.

Chapters (1)

This story is a sequel to Unleash The Beast!

Following the defeat of King Sombra, Grogar sends Tirek, Chrysalis & Cozy Glow to obtain the bewitching bell with the help of Cyber-villains Blaze & Roxy. But the task to get it is easier said than done...ESPECIALLY if there are Power Rangers involved!

Beast Morphers - It should take place between "Sound And Fury" and "Seeing Red"
My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic - A rewrite of the season 9 episode, "Frenemies", so most of this will probably not be canon.

I don't own anything. MLP & Power Rangers are both owned by Hasbro.

Chapters (5)

Thestrals. A race of pony all but forgotten in the modern age. They are, all of them, nocturnal. They live their lives in their sole territory, a forest in the middle of Equestrian Lands. They present as members of the country, their sole front-facing town, Hollow Shades, being the only point of contact with the rest of ponydom. The truth is, however, that this is the only place where loyalty to the Lost Sister has never wavered. Thus, they call themselves the Lunar Republic in secret, referring to their state as an individual city-state within the greater Equestrian country. They pay taxes, of course, but enact their own laws outside of Hollow Shades.

They also, through virtue of being such, maintain their own treaties. I am banking on this fact. If all works out, my darling daughter, you will be safe. They will honor their treaty, and raise you with love. All I ask is that you live to adulthood. For this sake, I will write you a book... lessons on our traditions, that when the time comes when you must take your crown you will be prepared. Until then, keep this book hidden and safe. Keep yourself hidden and safe.

I will always watch over you,
Queen Polaris.

This is a tale of love, family, and hope. A young royal will grow, come to understand herself and the world around her, and eventually take her place as the Queen of her own people. The story will largely be cannon compliant, however some things will be changed as I see fit.

This story is largely inspired by Law Abiding Pony's Hive series, and how exactly changelings work will in particular reflect this. Mainly I plan on copying their reproductive system and the role of the queen in the hive, however there will be differences from the biological makeup as I feel appropriate. I do have permission, and will link information where I copy wholesale, as well as make notes on where I simply adjust.
