My Very Little Ponies - Yonah21

The Mane Six are on earth, on a search. As expected, they meet up with a human. However, there is something different about them. They are all toy sized. Shenanigans and cute moments to follow. Though something more sinister is afoot.

Gaming and tickling

Thankfully when I got home Rainbow kept to what she said, and helped me deal with Rarity. And thank G-d she did too. My goodness was Rarity ticked when she saw the shape of my clothes. Thanks to Rainbow however, I did not get in trouble. In part because Rainbow actually took some blame for me, saying that I got wet only because she knocked me down. Which is not a total lie, anyway.

And when I got back I of course was told about some of what they got up to when I was away. I was really glad when they told me they are interested in possibly seeing The Hobbit film. For some time I thought I would have to see it alone. And add to that the fact that apparently Bonnie is pregnant, I was one happy guy last night. I bet those little kittens are going to be adorable.

However tonight, after I got back from work and relaxed a bit, I had an idea I just had to try. I haven’t had anyone to play with for a while, and I know just the pony to do so with.

“Rainbow Dash, I have an idea”, I say as I walk towards her as she stares lazily out the window.

“What? What are you talking about?”

“We’re going to play a game. It is nothing complicated, don’t worry, but this is something that I know you will lose.”

I do not remember everything about the show but one thing that I do remember, is that Rainbow is one very, very competitive mare. If you issue her a challenge she just has to take you up on it. And after I got back home from work today, I knew just what to go against her in. It is nothing difficult, nor will she be at a disadvantage due to her size. Though I just know that unless she cheats there is no way she can beat me.

“Excuse me?!”

Rainbow flies straight at my face, her front legs folded over what I think is her chest.

“You think you can beat me in something? Well bring it on buddy! I can take you!”

I simply grin, and walk to the couch, where an Xbox controller is currently sitting. I plop right down and look to Rainbow as I point to the controller.

“Than take a seat Rainbow. I know you are small, but you should still be able to press the buttons easily enough”, I say with a smile, as I turn on the console with the controller, and the Xbox logo shows up on the television.

Rainbow lands right next to me, and right next to the controller. As she looks over it, the other five walk towards us, looking towards the television themselves.

“What are you two up to?”, Twilight asks as she jumps up onto the couch next to Rainbow Dash.

“I am going to beat Rainbow Dash in a game”, I say with a smirk, looking down at said pony who quickly responds.

“No way, you aren’t going to beat me in anything! Whatever you have planned, I’m going to do better!”

“Alright now, this is somethin’ Ah gotta see”, Applejack says, jumping right next to me. “Ah put down ten bits on Micah here, Rainbow Dash, for when we get back to Equestria.”

Huh. I certainly did not expect that from Applejack.

“Thanks for the vote of confidence Applejack, much appreciated”, I say with a grin and gently scratch her back with my finger.

“Mm, that feels rather fine, Micah”, Applejack says as she leans into my finger. “Ah wish ponies had fingers like you.”

“Applejack, knock it off! Micah and I are going to have a competition. And when I beat him I don’t want to hear him whining that he lost because you distracted him”, Rainbow says, glaring at Applejack. “Now I want to start taking Applejacks bits. What sort of game are we playing?”

Applejack returns Rainbow’s glare, but stops when I catch her gaze. I don’t want them to get into an argument. Thankfully Applejack sits back down next to me, dropping the issue.

“We are going to play a game called Worms.”

I hear a collective “Huh?” from all six ponies once I say that.

“What manner of game has the name ‘worms’?”, Rarity says, her confusion quite clear.

“A game with worms as the characters you play as, of course”, I say with a grin, and start the game up.

“So, this game, you play it on this television of yours?”, Twilight says, her eyes locked on the television, then turning to the controller in my hands. “And do you use that to control your moves and actions?”

“That’s correct. The way this game is played is in turns. We each have four worms. The goal is to eliminate the other teams worms. And you do so with a variety of weaponry, such as rockets, dynamite, holy hand grenades, and explosive sheep.”

“It seems rather violent to me”, Twilight says while looking at the screen. “Why would you play this?”

“Because it’s fun. Think of it like a more interactive version of the game battleship. It is all cartoony and such, and not serious. And in case you are wondering, no, we do not have any explosive sheep in real life”, I say. I still find it odd that that is a weapon choice in this game.

“Why do you find this fun?”

“I have two reasons Twilight. One, it is ridiculous and silly and is good for a few laughs. Seeing a bunch of worms on screen fighting each other can be rather funny. Two, it is the only game I have that I have never been defeated in.”

“Until today! Now let’s get started already! What do we do?”

“First thing we do, Rainbow, is that we name our worms. We each have four, and we can name them almost anything we want. I already have my worm names in from previous games. You can look at them now.”

I cycle through the menu to ready a game, loading a team I have used often in the past. I take a quick glance at Twilight, who, no surprise, has her eyes locked on the screen.

“Why do the names have both letters and numbers?”, Pinkie asks.

“I have no real reason for it. Just felt like it really. I take it you find it a bit odd?”

Rarity speaks up fast, saying, “Well I do. ‘Moshe’sTh3Man’, ‘Imthebest’, ‘3verythingsKosherhere’, and…. ‘Ki$$meImJewish’?”

Oh. I can’t believe I forgot about that last one.

“Heh, um, yeah… I might have been a little drunk on Manischewitz wine when I made that one, sorry”, I say, feeling the eyes of the ponies all staring right at me. Except for one, who I hear snickering, before she bursts out to full on laughing.

“And it says your team name is ‘SexysuperJ3w’? You’ve gotta be kidding me! That’s ridiculous!”

“Shut up Rainbow Dash. Nothing wrong with telling the truth”, I say, and grin as I look down at her. “Just like there would be nothing wrong with you choosing something truthful for your team name. Like ‘TheRainbowCrashers’.”

Thankfully that shuts Rainbow up very fast, and her laughter is replaced by that of Applejack and Pinkie Pie.

“Oh shut up you two. Now give me that thing so I can choose my names”, Rainbow says as she starts pulling on the controller.

I hand it over to her, and try not to laugh at her. It is just funny to see her trying to get her names in while using a controller that is just about the same size as she is, if not a bit bigger. I try to help her out but she will have none of it. Though, eventually she figures it out and gets her worm names and team name in.

“So, Rainbow, you have named your team ‘Wonderbolts’, no surprise there, and your worms ‘Rainbowisawesome’, ‘Cool’, ‘Radical’, and… Oh Rainbow you are so dead. You dare name your last worm ‘Micahsucks’?”

Rainbow looks up at me with a smug grin. “But I thought you said there’s nothing wrong with writing the truth.”

Oh. Oh it is on now.

As the map for our match starts up, I say, “Alrighty Skittles, time to beat your furry flank back to Equestria.”


Twilight, Fluttershy, Applejack, Rarity and Pinkie did not expect this at all.

Shortly after they started, and Micah explaining the controls, Rainbow has been able to keep pretty much even with Micah. Whenever Micah shot a rocket or sent an exploding sheep against Rainbow, Rainbow was able to respond with equal force. While they each started with four worms, Micah now has only two, and Rainbow is down to her last one.

At first Micah thought it was just luck, though he did seem to get noticeably more nervous as more of his worms were killed. Nopony expected Rainbow to get the handle of this so quickly.

“Skittles, don’t you dare use that bunker buster. Don’t you even think about taking out ‘Imthebest’. He’s the best, you can’t take him out!”, Micah says, his eyes glued to the screen.

“Heh, I think you should have named him ‘Imtheworst’. He can’t hide from me!”, Rainbow says as she has ‘Micahsucks’ call in the bunker buster on ‘Imthebest’.

The bunker buster falls straight down, and tunnels through the dirt until it hits Micah’s worm, resulting in an explosion. The last bit of health that Micah’s worm has goes down to zero, causing a scream to come from Micah.

“Damn it Skittles! You will pay for this!”

“Ah don’t see how she will sugarcube. Rainbow looks to be in darn fine shape right now”, Applejack says.

The shape that Rainbow is in is really good. She has her last worm in a spot on the map that has cover above her so no air strike can get to her, and since Micah already used his bunker buster earlier he can’t hit her with it now. Nor can he go underneath her last worm as that would take too long and she would be able to get to counter him rather easily.

And that turret right in front of her will cause a lot of trouble if he tries to get at her in any straightforward manner. With his last worm already down to seventy five percent health, he has to be careful.

“Micah… Um, I, I have an idea.”

Fluttershy flies up to Micah’s ear, whispering to him.

“Fluttershy, what are you saying to him?”, Twilight asks.

Fluttershy doesn’t answer her however, and instead keeps talking to him. Everypony notices while she does so, Micah’s eyes slowly widen.

“Of course. It’s perfect. I don’t know how I didn’t notice that thing before”, Micah says, a grin forming on his face as he gently places a hand underneath Fluttershy. “Fluttershy, you are one wonderful pony.”

He gently places her on his shoulder, looking at her once more with a smile before taking his turn in the game and he decides to…

Stay still?

“Micah, buddy, Ah know it seems difficult but ya shouldn’t just up and quit. Ah still got ten bits ridin’ on ya”, Applejack says, prodding his side with her hoof. “Come on now, don’t quit.”

Micah says nothing to her, or anypony else. He simply places the controller back in front of Rainbow Dash, and leans back on the couch, his hands relaxed behind his head.

“Your turn, Skittles”, Micah says with a smirk as he looks down at her.

“Why do you keep calling her ‘Skittles’?”, Twilight asks, raising an eyebrow.

“Her hair is the same color as a common type of candy here on earth that is called ‘skittles’. I think the nickname fits.”

“Micah, call me whatever you want, because I am going to destroy you! Nopony is going to beat Rainbow Dash!”

With a wide grin, and a rather heavy dose of pride from seemingly beating Micah, Rainbow moves her last worm out of her little tunnel, towards Micah’s last worm. At this point Rainbow only has close ranged weaponry, but with a single shot from any of those Micah’s last worm would be dead.

“You look awfully calm, Micah. What is it that Fluttershy told you?”, Twilight says. She didn’t expect Fluttershy to be giving out advice on something like this, but whatever it is, Micah definitely seems to agree with it.

Micah doesn’t say a word to her, or anypony else. He simply watches the screen as Rainbow’s worm continues crawling forward towards Micahs last worm.


Or she would have done that, if her worm did not seemingly spontaneously combust.

Rainbow flies straight at the television, her eyes almost bulging out of her face. “What?! What happened?! What the hey happened?!”

Micah jumps off of the couch, and runs right towards Rainbow. “You walked right on a mine, dumbass! You sent your last worm right over a mine! Ahahaha! I am truly the SexysuperJew!”

“Yeah! RD, Ah think ya owe me ten bits when we get back”, Applejack says with a grin.

Seemingly stunned, Rainbow doesn’t even seem to hear Applejack and instead looks straight at Micah. “But… But how? I almost beat you!”

Micah doesn’t answer her, instead gently grasping Fluttershy in his hands. “Oh you wonderful pony you! I dedicate this victory to you Fluttershy! For seeing that mine and giving me such wonderful advice!”

Blushing, Fluttershy squeeks, “Um, th-thank you Micah. Glad I could help.”

Pinkie is the next to speak up, as she hops up and down. “Oh! We need a party! We need a ‘Micah beat Rainbow Dash in a video game’ party! Can we Micah, can we can we can we please please please? We’ll make cakes, muffins, and so many other yummy sweets!”

“I think that is a great idea Pinkie Pie”, Micah says, and turns to Rainbow. “And Rainbow, since you put up an awesome fight, I will cook you anything I am capable of.”

Rainbow raises an eyebrow from hearing that, and flies onto Micah’s shoulder. “Seriously? What’s the catch?”

“No catch, I just want to do that. It’s been a while since I have had a challenge. It was annoying, but rather nice as well, I must admit. And, don’t take the ‘dumbass’ comment earlier to heart. When I play video games I call even my own brother and sister worse names than that but I never mean any of it”, Micah says as he lets go of Fluttershy.

“Hm, well, I think I might be ok with it. Though you better expect me to keep calling you some names if you do that to me, ya big ape”, Rainbow says as she nudges the side of his neck with her hoof, eliciting a giggle from Micah.

“Heh, don’t touch me like that Skittles, I’m tickli-”

Micah covers his mouth with his hand as he realizes what he almost says, and he locks eyes with Rainbow who now has a very, very evil grin.

“You’re what, Micah? Ticklish?”, Rainbow says as she glares straight at him.

“Um, uh… Ladies, um, can you lend me a hoo-AH!”

Micah doesn’t have a chance to say anything else as Rainbow dives under his shirt, with non stop giggling coming from Micah as he tries to get her out. While trying to get her out he ends up falling down to the ground. Of course, the other five ponies stay where they are, most of them laughing at the sight before them, and Twilight making a mental note on how easy it seems to be to subdue Micah just by tickling him, and wondering if other humans are just as susceptible to that.

“Alright, alright Rainbow, stop!”, Micah says as he continues to roll on the ground. “I give, I give!”

Soon, he stops rolling on the ground, and Rainbow crawls out of the top of his shirt, standing on top of his chest. She looks down at him with a triumphant smile before she starts speaking.

“You give up because I’m awesome, right? I’ll stop if you say ‘Rainbow Dash is the most awesome pony ever, and is better than Micah at everything’.”

“Rainbow Dash is the most awesome pony ever, and is better than Micah at everything”, Micah says, somewhat out of breath from rolling on the ground.

“Good”, Rainbow says, and flies off of him and towards the kitchen, though looks back at him with a smirk. “Now let’s go make some food, ya big ape.”

Micah sends her a glare for a second, but his expression quickly changes to a grin. “Alrighty Skittles. I got an idea for something. How does Rainbow casserole sound?”

Author's Note:

Another chapter for you all! I hope you enjoy.

Next chapter will be not so cutesy, so you know.

Also, the stuff with the game, I don't think any in the Mane Six would be upset with it. They might find it a bit immature, but I don't think they would be appalled or anything, like they might be with Call of Duty or something. So I do not think it is a problem.

Again though, I hope you enjoy.
