It's Impossible! - AlicornPriest

Twilight discovers that magic is impossible. Things go from bad to worse in a hurry.

Alternate End 4: My Brain is Impossible!

This alternate end occurs right before I broke the fourth wall and delivered the punchline, "It's Impossible."

This was it. Twilight watched from her microintelligent perspective as the universe began to distort and sever. Space and matter began to pull apart like the goop in a lava lamp. It separated, over and over again, recombining and splitting like cells in a Petri Dish. Within each segment, she could see another universe, birthing and dying. The pieces grew smaller and smaller until they were nothing more than single points in a firmament of black. Then, something even stranger began to happen. They began to pull like taffy, turning into big long lines of red and blue and green. They formed together into shapes: triangles, squares, hexagons, dodecagons, rapidly growing more and more complex until finally they bound together into polyhedra, pyramids, cubes, dodecahedrons, icosahedrons, and then those shapes began to fuse together until they were the shape of a massive pony, purple, she realized with a sudden jolt that she was looking at Twilight Sparkle, no longer a princess but a god, formed from a trillion universes, infinitely huge and powerful yet understanding and loving and she watched as the massive Twilight Sparkle trod slowly out of her view, and she suddenly felt so lonely, and she tried to call out, "No, Twilight! Come back!" but nothing came out from her voice, she realized she had no body, no vocal cords to speak, but she didn't feel afraid, no, she only felt lonely, she wished for something to fill the void again, she was nothing among nothing, then who was she? Then the sky exploded in color like fireworks and some landed on her but they didn't burn, they gave her shape, yes, a patchwork of color, red and green and yellow, but she wasn't a pony, just a mishmash of colors and sounds and sensations, and suddenly she was so afraid, she didn't understand, what was she, why was she here, what did the colors mean, who what when where why--

"Twilight! Wake up!"

"Mmhm, hrmm... huh?" Twilight's head snapped up as she suddenly awoke. She checked herself; she was back in her alicorn body once more. "Where am I?"

"Well, you ran away from the party all crazylike. I came back here to find you staring at the bookshelves, totally still, and you were mumbling to yourself something. Just a couple seconds ago, you fell asleep, so I woke you up."

"...Oh. Thanks, Spike." She yawned. "I must have started hallucinating. Man, I saw the weirdest things."

"What did you see?" he asked.

"Well, first I imagined that I disproved magic. Then everything else started to go too, like our color, our wings... I even managed to disprove pony speech and intelligence! Then I started seeing weird colors and shapes and stuff, then I saw me, only I was made out of universes, and... anyway, it was really weird."

"Then now you know," Spike told her. "No more 9-day-long study sessions."

"That's right." She laughed. "If I did it again, I'm sure I'd see something even stranger!"

"But I'm glad you didn't really disprove magic," Spike said. "Imagine if you really had."

"Yeah. I bet you could write four totally different endings if that happened!"

"Yeah, I bet. Now, come on, Twilight. You should probably go to sleep, for real this time."

"All right, Spike. Wake me up in about three days!" she added with a chuckle.

While Twilight went back to her bed, Spike heard a knock at the door. "Don't worry, Twi, I'll get it!" he called up to her. When he got to the door, he opened it to find a beautiful alicorn standing in front of him. Her coat, mane, and tail were composed of what looked like galaxies and stars, and she looked exactly like Twilight. She stared deeply at Spike, then intoned, "We are looking for Twilight Sparkle, the One who Sees."

Spike could only gape.

Author's Note:

I have no idea where this came from. XD Mostly from sources I've heard similar to the eighth paragraph of this: http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/exchange/node/1690.
I'm sure I could come up with more endings if I wanted to. At the moment, however, I'm all out. I'm willing to take suggestions, as you might have noticed.
