How I Became Rainbow Dash - Lt Rainbow Slash

My name's Rainbow Dash and it has been three years since I became a pony (yes, originally I was human). I get asked 'How?' a gazillion times a day so I wrote this. Now stop reading the description and get on with it already

Chapter 6: OK...So you're a pony too?

7:31 AM PDT

"Cooper? Time to get up!" My Mom poked her head in to wake me up for school.

"MMMuph" I slowly got to my feet and walked on all fours over to the window for my early morning wake up flight.

I tried to hover up to open the window. What the buck? Oh Scheisse. Right I'm human at the moment.

I quickly stood up. I'm starting to hate these days as a human. Being stuck on the ground sucks!



I was standing at the rail on the hallway overlooking the cafeteria deep in my thoughts when I heard a voice that scared me out of my thoughts.

"Hello Cooper!"

"WHATTHEFUCK!! Kelsey! Tu' das nicht, du Dummkopf!"

"Say what?"

"Nothin'. Just slipping into mein Deutsch again. Just don't sneak up on me like that!"

I looked back at Kels. She was about 5'8 with brown hair and brown eyes. I had a crush on her for the last year, but she was dating Quillan the entire time so she was more just a friend. Damn if I didn't feel asexual because of my dream life thingiemabober I would ask her out right now...And the fact she's already dating Quillan.

"Ummm...Kels? Can I tell you something?"

"Yes dear?" OK...That resemblance is CREEPY!

"Well lately, I've been having dreams." *Sigh* here goes nothin'! "InthemI'mapegasusmare!" I blurted out.

Kelsey put her hand over my mouth to silence me. "Can you describe yourself in these dreams?"

Why is she acting like a crime scene investigator? "Ummm. I'm sky blue rainbow maned with a cloud and rainbow lightning bolt cutie mark. Why?" Not that she knows what that is.

Her eyes widen as she processes this, then she stared into my eyes and whispered two words so I could barely make them out. "Rainbow Dash? Is that you?"

I replied the only way I know as Rainbow: "The One And Only!"

She broke out in a huge smile. "Good to see you dear! I'm Rarity!"

Now it was my turn to have my jaw hit the floor. Wait! Does that mean that...?! She's...?! Awww, Hölle. She must have the same thing happening to her. Das ist nicht richtig.

"Let's go somewhere more private."


"Or maybe we can chat after school?"

"How about guitar class?"

"Eh why not"



15 minutes into guitar class and some story telling later me and Kels were all caught up.

"Oh, Dummkopf!" I said with a facepalm. "I just realized that our best friends in Equestria are probably our best friends here!"

"You really think so?" (Stop doing Rare's voice in your head for Kels, she sounds nothing like Rarity...Well she does but thats after *Spoiler*)

"Yup, and to make sure that were in the same dream-thing I'll meet you at Sugarcube Corner at 11, okay? Then we'll go get Flutters, Pinkie, and AJ."


"You know I guess this is why you've been acting different the last week."

"You too Cooper."

"But I thought this was how I always was?"

"It is. You're just even more cocky and full of yourself."

"Bin ich nicht." I muttered under my breath.


11:02 AM CST

I love you guys! I thought to myself while preening my wings. I hate being human. You lose so much freedom not being able to fly! The little bell at the door rang and I saw a certain white unicorn walk in.

"Hey Rarity! Or should I say, Kelsey?" I asked as Rarity cantered up and took a seat at the table I had taken in sugarcube Corner.

"As a pony I prefer Rarity thank you vary much. What about you dear?" Came the Canterlot/British accented voice.

"Well, 'Cooper' is a stal-I mean a male's name and here I happen to be a mare so I think I'll stick to being Rainbow Dash as a pony."

"Hmmm...well the name fits the body and personality so I see why. What's it like to be the opposite sex of what your used to?"

"Not bad, but thats because I've had eleven years to adjust. I find it weird, I'm completely straight in both worlds, on earth as a human male, I find myself looking at girls, and here, as a pegasus female, I find myself looking at stallions. I don't get it."

"Hmmm, very interesting...Anyhow we should get the rest of our friends now."

"You want to get all of our friends together? We could have a picnic party!" (no points for guessing who said that)

"AGHH!! Pinkie! How many times do I have to tell you not to do that!" I yell at her while I try to get my wings to fold up (they pop out, or have a wing boner as my friends call it when I'm angry, scared, surprised or exited, it's immensely annoying).

Why am I always the only one startled when Pinkie does that?

"Hello Pinkie." Rarity interrupted, "Why don't you just arrange a plain picnic? No party thank you dear. We and all our friends need to chat."


"How bout' our usual spot?" I suggest.

"Yes, that would be perfect dear." Damn she says that a lot!

Pinkie rushed off to prepare a picnic while Rarity and I went to invite Flutters and AJ.



"Thank you all for coming girls." Rarity said, "we have much to discuss."

"Like what?" Asked Applejack.

"Rainbow." Rarity motioned me to speak. I sat up on my cloud seat (SOOOOOO comfy!).

"Well let's just say that we're all human."


"How did you know?"

"We are?"

"Now dears, we're going to go around the circle and were all going to tell each other our human names OK? Applejack, would you be kind enough to start?"

"Ah...Ah'm not sure. It's jus...*Sigh* as a human I'm male. Mah name is Cade." Cade? Cade Arnason?

"Well I'm Tim Pho!" Pinkie screeched. Well that would explain the randomness.

I looked at my friends for their reactions. AJ looked shocked as did Flutters, Pinkie just kept bouncing, and Rarity just sat and took in the scene.

"Oh my goodness." came a small voice, "I'm Ben van Buskirk" said Fluttershy. Oh-My-Bucking-God! Ben!

"An' what about you two?" Asked AJ.

"I'm Kelsey Hanes-Young" A few mouths dropped open at that.

"And I'm Cooper Bogart." I stated. "Looks like my four best friends from Earth are my four best friends in Equestria too!"

"AW Horseapples Rarity, yer so lucky. Ya get to stay the same sex through all of this." Spurted AJ.

"Just be happy that you ended up as AJ instead of Rarity, Cade. At least the personality changes didn't make you a priss"

Rarity gave me a death glare.

"Heh, Ah guess yer right." Replied the orange Earth pony


8:41 AM PDT

Agh...what time is it? WAS ZUR HÖLLE! VERDAMMT! WHY AM I IM MY HUMAN ROOM? I'm not a pony am I? Nope. So how come I'm back after two weeks instead of a year? Hmmm, Maybe it has something to do with dates? They are synced up now. It's October 8, 2010 in Equestria, and October 9 here so...what exactly?!


2:38 PM CST

COME ON COME ON!! I can do this!

I was flying above Ponyville just below the sound barrier, trying to pull off my newest trick, the 'Buccaneer Blaze' I'd decided to call it.

COME ON! I just gotta pass the sound barrier!........OH shit!

I quickly turned to avoid the cloud I didn't see ahead, and clipped it with my wing.

"Ooff!" I plunged out of control until I was flying very fast at nought feet through the streets. I regained control to see I was too late as I slammed into a purple unicorn landing both of us in a puddle of mud.


"Nng." she grumbled.

"Hee hee. Uh, 'scuse me? Hee hee!" I said getting up. Whoops. HA HA HA.


"Heh heh. Lemme help you."

I shot off and quickly grabbed a rain cloud after flying through to clean myself. I flew it back and positioned it above her before bouncing on it to make it rain.

"Hee *snort*. Oops, I guess I overdid it. Um, uh, how about this?" I said as I flew around her creating a mini-tornado, "My very own patented Rain-Blow Dry! No no. Don't thank me. You're quite welcome."

I opened my eyes and looked at her. Her purple mane was all poofy like Pinkie's and unless Pinkie's the one with it, it looks ridiculous!


I begin laughing uncontrollably feeling something land on me.

"Let me guess. You're Rainbow Dash." The unicorn said.

"The one and only. Why, you heard of me?" I said popping up.

"I heard you were supposed to be keeping the sky clear. *sigh* I'm Twilight Sparkle, and the Princess sent me to check on the weather."

"Yeah, yeah, that'll be a snap. I'll do it in a jiffy. Just as soon as I'm done practicing." I said as I flew up and lay down to a cloud.

"Practicing for what?"

"The Wonderbolts! They're gonna perform at the Celebration tomorrow, and I'm gonna show 'em my stuff!" Duh!

"The Wonderbolts?"


"The most talented flyers in all of Equestria?"

"That's them!"

"Pfft! Please. They'd never accept a Pegasus who can't even keep the sky clear for one measly day."

What did she say!

"Hey, I could clear this sky in ten seconds flat."

"Prove it."

Challenge accepted!

I bashed the cloud I was sitting on as I flew all over town busting all the clouds.

"Loop the loop around, and wham!" I exclaimed as I busted the last cloud, "What'd I say? Ten. Seconds. Flat. I'd never leave Ponyville hanging." I looked over and saw both Twilight's and her little dragon friend's mouths hanging open, " He. You should see the look on your face. Ha! You're a laugh, Twilight Sparkle. I can't wait to hang out some more." I said taking off for my cloud house.


5:32 PM CST

Why is Pinkie so obsessed with parties?

All four of my friends and I were hidden in the library waiting for Twilight to come in, along with half the town. We heard the door open and close and got ready. *Flick* The lights came on and...you can guess what happened.


Pinkie ran up to Twilight and started one of her trademark rants.

"Hi, I'm Pinkie Pie, and I threw this party just for you! Were you surprised? Were ya? Were ya? Huh huh huh?"

"Very surprised. Libraries are supposed to be quiet."

"Well, that's silly! What kind of welcome party would this be if it were quiet? I mean, duh, bo-ring! Y'see, I saw you when you first got here, remember? You were all "hello" and I was all *deep gasp*, remember? Y'see I've never saw you before and if I've never saw you before that means you're new, 'cause I know everypony, and I mean everypony in Ponyville!"


"And if you're new, that meant you haven't met anyone yet, and if you haven't met anyone yet, you must not have any friends, and if you don't have any friends then you must be lonely, and that made me so sad, then I had an idea, and that's why I went *deep gasp*! I must throw a great-big-ginormous-super-duper-spectacular-welcome-party and invite everyone in Ponyville! See? And now you have lots and lots of friends!"

Thats when I realized Twi had gone and drank some hot sauce.

"Are ya all right, sugarcube?"

"Aww, she's so happy she's crying!" Said Pinkie as Twilights eyes watered and she shot up the stairs.

"Hot sauce". Said spike.

"What? It's good!"

I facehoofed "OH Pinkie!"


7:28 AM CST

"Ugh! How can I stop Nightmare Moon without the Elements of Harmony?"

"And just what are the Elements of Harmony? And how did you know about Nightmare Moon, huh? Are you a spy? Whoa!"


"Simmer down, Sally. She ain't no spy." said AJ pulling me out of Twilights face, "But she sure knows what's goin' on. Don't ya, Twilight?"

"I read all about the prediction of Nightmare Moon. Some mysterious objects called the Elements of Harmony are the only things that can stop her, but I don't know what they are, where to find them, I don't even know what they do!"

"The Elements of Harmony: A Reference Guide." Chirped Pinkie.

"How did you find that?!" Puzzled Twilight.

"It was under "Eeeee"!

"Oh." she said retrieving the book with her magic, "There are six Elements of Harmony, but only five are known: Kindness, Laughter, Generosity, Honesty and Loyalty. The sixth is a complete mystery. It is said, the last known location of the five elements was in the ancient castle of the royal pony sisters. It is located in what is now the Everfree forest."
