My Little Human: Equestrian Girl - Jgame

When Twilight comes back from her week long visit to her brother's house, she finds out that everything has changed. Canterlot High is babbling about some magic girl from another world, but Twilight knows better. There's no such thing as ma

Chapter One

Twilight woke up to the sound of her beeping alarm clock, which practically screamed at her to get out of bed. Instead of obeying, she opted to just lie there, half-asleep and exhausted from the ten hour drive by car she had made with her mother to see her older brother before he was sent away on his first mission with the military.

Twilight smiled a little, the thought of her brother piercing through the haze of exhaustion. Sure, she was tired, but missing school for a week and spending it hanging out with her older brother was well worth the cost of having to get up this morning.

Finally, she sat upright and leaned over to turn the alarm clock off, yawned, and then went into her drawers to pick out a light purple skirt, (her favourite), and a baby blue blouse.

Under an hour later, Twilight had her hefty backpack filled with almost overdue library books slung across her shoulders as she said her customary morning goodbye to her mother. Twilight's tiny dog Spike yapped at her as she headed out the door.

Twilight walked to school. The cool morning air and dead leaves that crunched beneath her reminded her that it was already fast-approaching autumn in the school year, although the sunny weather helped combat the autumn frost that would soon be approching.

Another girl walked beside her. Her name was Fluttershy, and as far as Twilight could see it was more or less a self-fullfilling prophecy.

She had walked with Fluttershy for all throughout her high school years, but any attempts at conversation always died as soon as they started. There was an unspoken agreement between both parties to ignore each other's company. Twilight knew that might sound abhorrent to other girls, but she liked things the way they were.

Today, though, Fluttershy kept looking at Twilight indiscreetly, opening her mouth and then closing it repeatedly, as if her mouth wanted to say something but the rest of her body wouldn't allow her.

She couldn't stand it any longer. "What?"

Fluttershy seemed to jump. "Is there anything wrong, Twilight?"

"You keep looking at me."

Fluttershy immediately looked away. "Oh, I'm so sorry, it's just... you remind me of her."


"The girl that came to our school last week."

"I wasn't here last week," Twilight said, "I was out visiting my older brother."

"Oh. Then, um, people might act a little strange when they see you."


"Well, she got really popular and then she left as soon as she did," Fluttershy practically whimpered from her shyness.

"Okay..." Twilight said, "so why'd she leave?"

"She said she had to go back home to Equestria. At least, that's what I think she called it."

"Equestri-what? That's not a real place."

"She said she was from another world."

Twilight rolled her eyes. "Let me guess, she had magical powers too."

"How'd you know?" Fluttershy said in surprise.

"I was being sarcastic. Magic exists in fairy tales. Grow up."

Fluttershy fell silent, except for a tiny sniffle.

Great, Twilight thought to herself in irritation, I made her cry. Just great.

Twilight had some time to kill before first period. A tiny bit of curiosity sparked in the back of her mind. The awarding of the Princess of The Fall Formal had been last week, and she'd missed it completely.

Of course, there was only one candidate that was running, so it was a guarantee who won.

Nevertheless, the bit of curiosity still lingered. What if that girl Fluttershy was talking about somehow got popular enough to beat Sunset Shimmer, the school bully and long-standing winner of the Fall Formal?

It was a ridiculous thought, one with only slightly higher chances of being true than a girl that could cast magic spells; but as Twilight had nothing better to do with her time, she headed towards the gallery anyways.

There were two galleries, one in the principal's office and other for the students out in one of the out of the way hallways of the school. Twilight wondered not for the first time if the principal ever got tired of seeing Sunset Shimmer's face on every single picture of the Fall Formal winners.

Twilight stopped.

Right in front of her was the picture of the new Fall Formal winner, and it wasn't Sunset Shimmer.

It was Twilight.

It was a picture of her, holding Spike, who instead of trying to bolt from the camera like he always did, stood obediently still.

Nearby, a blonde teen with a cowboy hat tucked under her arm leaned against the wall, admiring the picture until she spotted Twilight.

"Howdy," the girl said.

"Hi... you're Applejack, right?" Twilight said.

Applejack nodded. "Yep."

"Do you have any idea what's going on?" Twilight said as she jabbed a thumb towards the picture, "I never entered the Fall Formal."

"Yeah, Fluttershy said somethin' about that," the blonde girl said, "she felt bad for ya, so she asked me to talk to ya about what you missed."

Fluttershy had felt bad for Twilight? Twilight's jaw twitched slightly at the thought.

"It's nice of you to do that," Twilight said politely, "but I'll be fine."

"Ya sure, sugarcube? Fluttershy said she tried to tell ya what was going on, but you wouldn't believe her."

"Of course I didn't believe her," Twilight said, "she was telling me that some girl in the school that conveniently left right before I came back from my older brother's apartment had magic powers. I mean, how obvious can you make it that someone made it up?"

Applejack looked at her with pity. "Look, Fluttershy and I were both there when Twilight used her magic against-"


"Yeah, her name was Twilight. And ya know, she kinda looks like you."

The first bell signaling it was time to go to class rang. Twilight seized her chance and immediately slipped away from Applejack.

First Fluttershy, and now Applejack. How many other people in the school believed such an insane story?

Judging by the way of how the students in the school reacted to Twilight, everyone. The only ones who didn't buy the story were the ones who had been sick on the day of the Fall Formal. Twilight wondered what could have possibly happened there that would convince so many people so easily.

Whatever the case, the constant whispers whenever she was near the other students was enough to make her uneasy. Some seemed hopeful, and then crushed when they examined Twilight. Others who had known that she existed before her doppelganger's debut merely shook their heads, as if she had just taken some sort of test and failed.

And then there was Sunset Shimmer herself and Fluttershy's friends.

Twilight could tell that they were close knit somehow, but if she hadn't been there to see it herself, she wouldn't have believed it.

It was enough that Fluttershy had friends, the exact same ones that she had fallen out with a year ago, but having Sunset Shimmer as a new member in the circle of friends thoroughly puzzled the suddenly popular girl.

Sunset Shimmer was the most wicked person of anyone in the school, with Fluttershy as one of her prime targets, yet Sunset Shimmer and the rest of the girls walked to their classes talking and laughing with each other as if they'd been friends for years.

Maybe that's what happened, Twilight thought dryly, people were so amazed that Sunset Shimmer was being nice that their only explanation was "a wizard did it."

Twilight rushed outside the classroom as soon as she heard the lunch bell to make sure she was the first in line at the cafeteria. She ordered her food quickly, and then slipped outside just as fast to avoid the crowd of students.

She read her book under the shade of a tree as she ate her lunch. Beside her, Melody played a tune on her flute that she always carried around.

Twilight and Melody weren't exactly friends; they were more like close acquaintences. They didn't talk very much, but when it came time for group projects the two girls always found themselves working together. It became a ritual for Twilight to read her books next to Melody when she practiced her flute at lunch hour.

Twilight didn't mind the flute. It was soft enough that it was easy to tune out, and Melody was good enough that it didn't shriek and make irritating noises constantly.

She snapped her book shut in fustration. Instantly, the music died. Melody turned to look at her close acquaintance, giving her an arched eyebrow.

"If you're going to tell me how I look just like the other Twilight Sparkle, save it," Twilight snapped.

"I was just surprised you pulled your nose out of the book," Melody said.

"The book's about magic spells. And right now, I'm sick of magic being the explanation of why everyone in the school suddenly knows who I am!"

"What happened at the dance was either magic, or the most complicated sound and light show known to mankind," Melody said.

"Don't tell me you believe this magic girl too," Twilight groaned.

"I do," Melody said, "I even tested the rumour."

"What rumour?"

“They say that if you put your hand against that statue-” Melody pointed towards a white marble horse that kept a silent watch over the school, “-you can hear the voice of the other Twilight Sparkle as she rules over her kingdom.”

“So have you tried it? Hear any voices?”

“No,” Melody admitted, “but I did hear the sounds of a pan flute.”

“I don't believe this,” Twilight said as she grabbed her lunch tray in search of somehere else to eat her lunch.

Melody shrugged and continued practicing her flute.

Twilight went back inside the cafeteria and looked for an empty table, spotting one in the back corner.

She got a rude shock when she looked around at the other tables' occupants. Even the cliques were different.

No. Different wasn't the word. The word was more like nonexistant.

Normally, jocks sat with jocks, fashionistas sat with fashionistas, and girls like Twilight sat quietly in the corner of the room and ate their lunch in peace.

Not any more. A jock was chumming it up with a band geek and the fashionistas were giving the techies much-needed fashion tips.

Like the rest of Canterlot, even the cliques had been rearranged into a chaotic mess that didn't make any sense. It was like she had walked into a completely different high school by accident. Canterlot High didn't feel like Canterlot High any more, and for a moment she almost felt nostalgic for it.

Twilight's stomach growled, cutting off her train of thought and returning it to what she had came for: a place to eat in peace.

She steeled herself and ignored the looks she was given as she made her way to the table.

"Hey, Twilight!" a student called out to Twilight.

Without thinking, she tracked the voice to one of the jocks at the table near the center of the cafeteria. The table was occupied by Fluttershy along with Applejack and a few other girls.

Twilight was half-tempted to ignore them, but she instead sighed and took a seat with the girls against her better judgement.

Twilight Sparkle sat down at the table and eyed Sunset Shimmer warily.

“What are you doing here?” Twilight Sparkle blurted out.

Sunset Shimmer swallowed her food before answering. “Same thing you're doing. Eating my lunch.”

Twilight Sparkle rolled her eyes. “I know that. Why are you sitting with these girls? Don't you have some revenge scheme you should be planning?”

“I'm done with all that,” Sunset Shimmer said, “I've resolved to stop being a total jerk and get what I want the right way.”

“So you're magically changing into a nicer person,” Twilight Sparkle summed up, “heard that one before.”

“I really mean it.”

“Heard that one before too.”

“Hey!” Pinkie Pie, a bubbly girl with long curly hair said, “she really means it!”

“Look, we've been hit by Sunset Shimmer too, you know,” Rainbow Dash said. Twilight knew Rainbow Dash as the school jock.

“And you believe her when she says she's changing... why, exactly?” Twilight said skeptically.

“We made a promise to a friend,” Applejack said.

“To who? Fluttershy's make-believe friend named Twilight Sparkle?” the real Twilight said sarcastically.

Sunset Shimmer gripped the table so hard her knuckles went white. “Make all the jokes you want about me, Twilight Sparkle. But the other Twilight Sparkle is real, like it or not, and she gave the chance to turn my life around. If you don't believe us, then fine.” The outburst done with, Sunset Shimmer let go and buried herself in the task of eating her food.

“I know it's hard to believe,” Fluttershy said with sympathy, “but Sunset Shimmer is right, Twilight Sparkle is real.”

“Fine. So she's real,” Twilight said stubbornly, “I still don't believe anything she supposedly did was any single bit as wonderful as everone is making her out to be.”

Rarity's eyes lit up in realization, and then laughed. “Oh, I think I understand what's really going on here. You're jealous of the other Twilight, aren't you?”

“Jealous! No way am I jealous of her! I'm just sick of everyone talking about her!”

“Jealous McJealousypants,” Pinkie Pie chimed in.

“I'm not jealous!” Twilight almost yelled as she grabbed her lunch tray and went to sit at an unoccupied table in the cafeteria.

Sunset Shimmer looked up from her food in hypocritical disapproval.

“She really needs to lighten up a little,” Rainbow Dash said.

Applejack said nothing as she took a sidelong glance at the lonely girl in lavender.
