Crystal Ballerina - BlueSkyHeadLeft010

What is the meaning of life? For me it means getting a second chance. You wouldn't think that buying a simple Pearl from an old geezer at a gas station would transport you to Equestria right? Wrong. Now I'm stuck here with this Pearl on my

All that Sparkles

Long ago, in the times of when the three pony tribes were still at war, my mentor Starswirl the Bearded came across some very unique creatures.

He told me that they appeared one day in his garden, asking him if he had seen glowing monsters about.

Starswirl would've thought it funny if they had not looked so confused and desperate.

There were four of them. A pink curly one, a blocky red mute, a young and cheerful purple being, and a serious white one.

Starswirl took them into his humble home and showed them the world of Equestria. They were eager to discover the lands beauty, and while they were there helped to concure many foes.

It was only during the reign of Sombra did they mysteriously vanish, taking their strange creatures with them...

I cocked my head in confusion, "So let me get this straight. The crystal gems were a group of sparkly aliens that visited for a while and then just left?" I asked.

Celestia sighed, "No, they helped to quell the aggressive dragons of the north, vanquished the glitter bugs of the south, and defeated the diamond dogs of the badlands." She explained, waving her hoof in the air for emphasis. "We owe them for their aid in our times of need. Me and my sister swore that if they were to ever return we would aid them with whatever they sought." She said.

I nodded in understanding as I sipped on my tea and contemplated. "I apologize for building up false hopes. But still I came to ask if maybe you knew of how to get me back home. My family has no doubt begun to wonder." I said thougfully.

"We shall help as much as we can, but we do not know how long it might take." Luna said. Come to find out she was really understanding.

"We do not posses the ability to cross dimensions like the ones you spoke of to get here. It may be centuries." She sighed gloomy, pulling her ears back.

I leaned back on the bed in disappointment, "Well it's not like I have much else to look forward to. Apparently Starswirl's records state I'm now immortal and I don't need to eat, drink or sleep." I moaned, thinking about the fun times ahead.

Twilight put a reassuring hoof on my shoulder, "Hey that's future Crystal's problem. Besides, there are plenty of things to look forward too!" She beamed, "Like you could learn how to fight from my brother since you did so good defeating that bird!" She encouraged.

I chuckled, "It was blind." I stated, "But I guess you do have a fair point. Seems like I should at least know better techniques since I've had to fight all sorts of things after arriving here."

This made Celestia raise and eyebrow, "Oh? I do not think we've heard of your heroics. Prey tell what were you fighting other than this bird?" She asked sipping on her tea curious.

I shrugged, "Changelings."

"CHANGELINGS?!" Everypony screamed at once.

"What in Faust's name were you doing fighting changelings?!" Twilight exclaimed.

I shrugged sheepishly, "I kinda woke up in their nest/hideout." I explained.


After explaining the situation, Celestia and Luna left to go fetch the guard in search of the Changeling nests, but insisted that I stay another day and rest until we could head back to Ponyville.

"It'll be dark by the time you get there today. You are welcome to spend the night here until your magic has recovered. In the mean time me and my sister have some duties to attened to." And that was all she said before she quietly closed the door and left me and Twilight alone.

I stared at the door for a bit before noticing Twilight looking rather excited.

I raised a curious eyebrow to her, "What are you so excited about?" I said coy.

Twilight nearly squealed, "Because! You're literally made of magic!" she cheered.

"Uh, sure? What does that have t-"

"Don't you see?!" She whirled around showing off her cutie mark, "My talent is magic!" She then pointed to me, "You're magic! so that means-" She held the phrase with bated breath.

I just looked at her dumbly, "Uh, we both shouldn't exist?"

Twilight shook her head, "No! That means that I can teach you how to use magic!" She cheered as she started rambling on about what types of lessons plans she should use and vise verse.

I just sorta made an 'o' with my lips as Twilight drug me off the bed and out the door.

"Wait! where are we going?!" I asked as Twilight took the lead, the guards only giving us small chuckles as they saw us ran by.

Twilight smiled, "Somewhere really neat!" Was all she said before we went outside...

"Okay! Okay Twilight! What gives?!" I said as we arrived outside in the royal garden next to a fountain that had a stone pony spitting out water from its mouth.

Twilight giggled as finally stopped leading me as she sat down on a part bench and motioned for me to do the same.

I looked at her confused, but did as she asked.

She hummed to herself softly before looking up at the night sky,"So many things in this world are magical Crystal. From the stars and the moon that Luna raises to the tiniest blade of grass that provides nourishment to ponies." She sighed wistfully before looking at me, "I'm not sure how exactly your world worked without magic, but here you are! Magic!" She beamed, "I know it's hard to understand but believe me, this is quite exciting! You're something special!" She paused for a moment looking at me seriously. "Don't ever doubt that ok?" She chuckled, "Otherwise I might just have to get Pinkie Pie and prank you." She smiled mischievously.

I rolled my eyes and chuckled lightly, my mind on other things," Thanks for the pep talk Twilight. I understand and all, really but-"

"No buts!" She interrupted as she magicaaly yanked on my shirt and pulled me down to her level, "You. Are. Special! Got it? Stop lying to yourself!" She looked at me concerned.

I sighed defeated, "You're right, you're right." I held up my hands and laughed as I looked up at the stars which were winking at me, "I'm special." I whispered, as we both sat there a little longer until we fell asleep under Luna's skies.
