An accident in the lab sends our favorite boy genius to Equestria, as a pony. What will he do and how will he get back? The answer: Science! (Cover Art Updated!)
New FAQ! and TV Tropes!
Planned Phrases from Dexter:
“Pinkie Pie! Don’t push that Button!” /to Pinkie
“Please, Magic is the word simpletons and the ignorant use to describe what they cannot understand.”/ to Twilight
“No, I didn't strap a rocket to you. I strapped you to a rocket.” /to Rainbow Dash
“Friends? Who needs friends?”

Dexter is a boy super-genius with a disdain for anything girlish and no desire for friendship. After an mishap in his lab, he gets stuck in Equestria. How will he cope with the over-friendly ponies, and the girlish everything?

For any who do not know Dexter's Lab

How dare you insinuate this...

Enter at your own peril, pass the vaulted door, where impossible things may happen that the world has never seen before...

All of my yes :pinkiehappy: also, this needs to be longer than chapters. This is better than that He-man story, they didn't even use,2003 He-Man, the manly version

Can't wait for him to meet Twilight xD will be a clash of minds, magic and science

You knew this was coming.

Lyra collision, imminent. Dexter breakdown, imminent, Science VS. Magic battle, Imminent...
And all this time Dee-Dee was watching the WHOLE THING.

Oh no! A women! Womens are dangerous!


For srs though, you should probably fix that typo. As amusing as it is, it is rather distracting.

Instant fave. KEEP WRITING! Dexter was my favorite show growing up.

uhhhh. im way behind my ussual work (not to mention i have about a hundred unread fanfics stacked in my read me later) but i love dexter's lab when i was a kid (i even remember seeing myself as dexter when i was young... lol good old days *sigh*) so i'm gonna give this a shot. Can't wait to see what you have in-store for us readers :3

I like Bleedman's styled Dexter more then the original's
Tho seeing how he ponified now...

“Excellent, you’re awake!” Said a
voice from nearby, it evidently belonged
to a women.

The women said as she approached, though her steps were accompanied by an odd clopping sound.

- should've been woman because it was only ms. Redheart after all (singular), no biggie though.

I got to say i really enjoyed what you wrote here, your take on dexter is spot on as far as i can tell. Good gracious i can't wait for the update.. this is too good to be honest. The potential of the story is just... just epic!!!

4394286 wow, that right there is an effin cool dex.

4393287 not to mention that the world is infested with cooties.

Uh... I think Dexter has Scientifically Found out they are all... fake in one episode.

Personally I see dexter as a unicorn due to his genius brain and if dee-dee comes with her who the buck knows ( thinking pegasus

Apologies, It's just that there are some UK viewers and they might not have seen it.

Dexter vs Equestria GO!
Dee Dee isn't watching. In one episode Dexter is working on a new teleporter and Dee Dee comes in and pushes the button to activate it, sending Dexter to an alien world where he was enslaved. Dee Dee had no clue where he went and had to ask the computer. Similar situation here.

THANK YOU. If thats the only typo then I think i did a better job than usual. Dont stress dude, I'm not taking it down... for now anyway.

I like bleedman's as well. But unfortunately I believe he got Dexter's eye color wrong. I remember one of his comics painting Dexter's eyes green but in cannon they are blue.

Dee Dee MIGHT appear, but only later. I haven't decided yet. I also haven't decided if Dexter's "Magic Uncle Fergal O'Riley" would appear. Though his magical abilities utilize snapping his fingers, which would make him a Chimera like discord.


For any who do not know Dexter's Lab

How dare you insinuate this...

Dude, the "Amazing World of Gumball" and *shivers* "Unclegrampa" exist, of course there are people who don't know good cartoons exist.

but, to complete your last thought *blows pitch pipe* There is gloom and doom while things go Boom... in Dexter's LAAAAAAAAB.

4392991 There are some poor, benighted souls who are completely unaware of the existence of Dexter's Laboratory.

They are being hunted down as we speak. :trollestia:

Dexter is in My Little Pony, a show, and since it is supposed to be for young girls, there is a chance Dee-Dee is watching it and Dexter is there. But if not, oh well.

I just wanted everyone to know that Dee Dee was not watching Dexter from inside the laboratory. She's not at the control panel 'pulling the strings,' I thought that was the vibe people were going with. As for, if she is watching the show... we'll see. :scootangel:


I like the premise. Shenanigans with Dexter (and potentially Dee Dee) in Equestria? Sign me up!

I was hoping to get more "Dexter-ness" in the first meeting, though. The way he reacted to seeing Nurse Redheart and finding out he's a pony, is exactly the same as a typical HiE freak-out. Boring. After everything Dexter has seen and done? Meeting aliens, traveling to other worlds, and yes, even being turned into animals? He should be used to this by now.

At some point in the story, this needs to happen:

Thanks for the comment. Don't Worry I dont plan on making Dexter too dense. It would be out of character even for him. As for continuity, I'm going to have to make decisions about that down the road. As you can tell, there is a lot to do.

Thanks for the post, but yes, predictable HiE freak out. But 1) Dexter was just blown up and turned into a pony, he is entitled to a freak out. 2) As most HiE's and crossovers, there 'handshake' period where he is introduced to the universe. Certain responses are required otherwise the story will make people cringe. 3) Other people enjoy this. I would love for everything to be new and surprising, but some things are just the basic part of the formula and cannot be changed without a VERY good reason. So while I inclined to agree with you, I can't.

New chapter is I'd say halfway finished. But sleep now, science later.

Lyra: Bon-Bon?
Bon: No.
Lyra: Bonnie...
Bon: No.
Lyra: Can we adopt him?
Bon: No.

Why do I imagine Dexter's gonna build a lab in Twilight's basement?

I'm loving this already! Can't wait to see where the boy genius goes from here. Just leave Action Hank out of it :rainbowlaugh:

Okay, Chapter 2 is written. It just needs to be edited. It is currently 4300 words.

Expect it tomorrow.

I got it up o/

Fail or Win? I'll be reading comments people, this is my first attempt at comedy and I don't know what is good or bad.

You know, I instinctively clicked the dislike for this just on the principle of a human-turned-pony cliche (which I loathe) but after actually taking some time to remember Dexter's Laboratory...this isn't even close to the weirdest thing that happened in that show.

So I'm going to give this a chance.

And hey, it's been funny so far. Just...please, please PLEASE don't let culture clash and character conflict slide away, don't turn this into some crappy slice of life thing.

you are resurrecting my childhood, keep the good work.

I'm not sure if I'm reading you correctly, were you going to down-vote it on the basis of premise alone (without reading it) or did you read it and not like it?
pm me.

"don't let culture clash and character conflict slide away,"

Oh, it wont >:)

Great story, very funny and man I miss this show... I do hope you fill in the missing periods you have in dialogue but otherwise it reads like a dream. MOAR! :flutterrage:

:twilightangry2:Guh! This story angers me so much I just want to bite somebody in the face! First, that stupid cliche meat scene that's in damn near every HiE story, it's so unrealistic! And everybody knows it! Then you had to go and turn this into a denial fic! These things are so annoying! For crying out loud, there is no reason for the ponies to be this vehement that everything Dexter says is false, they live in a world of magic! Tartarus is probably in a different dimension, and Twilight has already proven that magic can change species. Why is his story so hard to believe!? And the same goes for Dexter. He should know by now that probability plays almost no factor in his life! A bunch of his episodes are built around one in a million chances.

... Phew, had to get that off my chest. Anyway, this is still a fun, if not frustrating story and I hope to see an update soon. Hopefully denial on one of the two sides is cleared up in the next chapter. Good luck and happy writing:twilightsmile:

Thanks for commenting.
I can understand your frustration, but let me explain. The way I write stories (especially this one, given that I don't like HiE's were the human is turned into a pony) is sort of like a simulation. I line up the dominoes (premise) and watch them fall (story).
I think the general feel of that scene, and it's place in the story, is true and necessary due to Dexter's character. There was an entire episode about Dex's eating habits.

4418531 The meat scene could have been better. Maybe more inner monologue?
Otherwise great story. Can't wait for the next part.

Dexter will now shout "No!" because he will be forced for manual labor, greeting and brother notion was the biggest hint.
In other news, Dee-Dee clone inbound, stupefied about Dee-Dee clone knowing his life and lab, fourth-wall break inbound.

I'm waiting for the CMC to become the new Dee-Dee:scootangel::unsuresweetie::applecry:

Human in Equestria - HiE
Dexter in Equestria - DiE

Dexter's skepticism and lack of realization will be the death of him in this world if he doesn't accept the fact it's all real. But now that he's meeting the Mane six and all sanity will really be tested.

OOO, now you've got me excited, can't wait for Dexter to thrash Twilight with science... but, on the other hand, Twilight could always point out that Dexter can grip stuff without fingers... logic is a cruel mistress.

You have earned your Like from me, sir. This chapter had me openly laughing.

For any who do not know Dexter's Lab: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dexter's_Laboratory

some people never grew up with Dexter!?

all joking aside, love to see an story crossing one of the shows i grew up with and ponies together, i shall read this at a later date

now all we need as an ed, edd and eddy crossover and i'm happy :rainbowlaugh:

4418589 - No Dee Dee clone, but a main six pony might find her way into Dexter's lab to push his buttons . . .
4419504 - Dex + CMC ? Run for your lives!
4419759 ,4420400 - Thanks
4420043 , 4420139 - He will deal with both the crazy issue and Twilight.
4420666 - I would like to see a adult battling KND one myself.

Figures that DeeDee would screw things up yet again. It's going to be interesting to see Dexter adjust to life in Equestria, especially with the emphasis on magic here. It's up to him to show the ponies the wonders of science!

He'll still think a certain pink pony is a Dee-Dee clone or Dee-Dee herself in his 'Imagination'

4422530 - THANK YOU. You want to be a proof reader? You'll get early access to the chapters. (Next one is currently half written atm.) I'll probably make those corrections sometime tomorrow.

4423159 :pinkiegasp: Which pink pony? A lot of them have pink, hazard a guess? :pinkiehappy: Is there something possibly WORSE than Dee Dee?

Not getting farther, waiting on the next chapter. :derpytongue2:

4423159 actually, I imagine dexter thinking the cmc being Dee Dee, Lee Lee, and Mee Mee
