How did I get here? Oh wait... Now I remember... Ponies. Amature artist and wannabe writer. Guess I had to start somewhere...

T

A young human called Alex is transported to Equestria without knowing how or why. After being discovered by Twilight Sparkle and her assistant Spike in the Everfree Forest, Alex soon learns that he is a very special case.
He now finds himself running for his life as everypony is out to get him.

Will Alex escape this ponified nightmare, or will he find himself as a prized catch?



This story was inspired by 'We will Catch You if we Can' by proto-alpha.

I can't wait to see where this go's! Good luck Alex and don't let the twilighrs bite!

Hoping this ends with Twilight becoming infamous for ruining first contact.

5102460 Thanks :twilightsmile:


5102263 Believe me. Alex is going to need a lot of luck :ajsmug:


5102667 We'll just have to wait and see about that :raritywink:

Why can't I stay away.... must read HIE story! Noooooo!

5102667 I second this notion, and provide one of my own: Alex teaching Twilight that keeping sentient creatures in a cage is no good as a certain blue hedgehog would say.
Alex: Seriously, what were you thinking?!
Twi: ...That I would get the Hoofbel prize. Just think of it! An entire crowd rooting for me and my findings, and you up there, in a...
Alex: What, in a cage?
Twi: ...yeah...
Alex: You know what? Hold on to that image, except with humans in the crowd instead of ponies and me and you in swapped places. Now how does that look, Mrs. "I-screwed-up-first-contact"?
Twi: ...
Alex: And also, what about scientists wanting to make breakthroughs in alienscienceology? What about them testing to see if I could get through a maze, using electric shocks as motivation? Or them testing how fragile a human being is? Or them dissecting me, just to understand me better? Did you ever think about that?
Twi: *sobs*
Alex: The ritual is complete. *drags her to room* It's all ogre now.

5104355 Question is... Is it containment? Or protection? :applejackunsure:

There is a lot of crazy ponies out there. Who knows..?

5104102 And now you're mine! Muhahahahahahaha-haaa :pinkiecrazy:

Seriously though, have fun reading :pinkiehappy:

Oh, dear god. I'm putting a 'read this story later' on this one.
I shall read it at the earliest chance I have. And it will be glorious.
(At least, I hope it will. Allon-sy.)

This is so much better than the original.

I want to see their faces when he tell you about nuclear weapons ... [ maybe ] :pinkiecrazy:

This feels like an authentic episode of the show lol. Good work! :pinkiehappy:

5107817 Thanks :twilightsmile: And there'll be more chapters to come :raritywink:

She suddenly had an idea. She started to envision herself at the Ponyville Market. Only this time she wasn’t selling apples...

OH CMON, Leave the poor guy alone.
No kidding, this story is really funny.

I think I might just follow you. Good story and keep going!

"Let the words flow through you, Luke..."

Lol, the one thing friendship cannot fix in this case, selfishness.

I've never read a HiE story that took such a cartoony approach before. It's pretty funny though, with all the shenanigans going on, it almost feels like an actual episode. Carry on.

5107844 I look forward to reading more of these.:twilightsmile:

Poor Alex can't catch a break. I wonder what kind of weird and crazy self-interest fantasies the rest of Mane Six will have of him, or better yet the other ponies. I can try and guess but I think yours will be funnier.

OMG! I can't get enough of this story!! Haha! If I were Alex, though, the ponies would probably be too small, I would have strapped a halter on Applejack and try riding her... I don't know! It'd probably get him nowhere but nonetheless, they are equines. Ahh, I wonder what Fluttershy is going to do? Could you imagine if he ran into Lyra?? Haha :rainbowlaugh:
I hope you continue this soon! Getting really addicted to Alex's adventure in Ponyville.

You know you have to run, when Twilight acts crazy... :twilightsheepish:

This story is... MAGNIFICENT!!!!

if I were in his shoes. I would probably start swinging blunt objects at them after my brain blue screened at the messed up situation.:twilightoops:

5107972

OH CMON, Leave the poor guy alone.

:ajbemused::twilightangry2: "NEVER!!!" :rainbowwild:

5108345 I thought it would be a more interesting approach compared to most of the HiE stories out there. Love yours btw :pinkiesmile:

5108684 Believe me. This is just the beginning :rainbowlaugh:

5108851

imagine if he ran into Lyra?? Haha

Yeah :rainbowlaugh: He'd REALLY be in trouble if that happens :twilightsheepish:

You know you have to run, when Twilight acts crazy...

And she's not the only one... :raritywink:

5109152 Don't worry. Alex is not THAT helpless :twilightsmile:

just a thought, but isnt Equestria ruled by a diarchy? (Celestia and Luna?)

5109517 True, but in a way Celestia is kinda considered the 'Head-Honcho' princess. She's ruled Equestria alone for a thousand years and has but recently gotten her sister back.
Takes time for everypony to completely acknowledge that there's two ruling monarchs and not just one.

5109517
Yes, you are correct. Celestia isn't a monarch anymore.

Also, author, you should consider changing your 'sighs' to something more subtle. Italics, for example, instead of parentheses. That detracts from the story.

5107554
Yeah, ignore that. Every HiE comments section has someone talking about when the human will tell the ponies about nuclear weapons. Trust me, been there. I'd just as soon avoid that topic in your story.

Also, as a sidenote, the 'to be continued' bit, while momentarily entertaining, isn't necessary and just serves to take away from the chapter. It works on television, or movies, but I don't think it really has a place in literature.

This need comedic music, Quick play Yakety Sax!

this reminds me of roger rabit

Hmmm you have gained my interest. please continue while I fav and like this.

You may have point. I'll do that in new chapters and update the others later :twilightsmile:


5110120

Yeah, ignore that. Every HiE comments section has someone talking about when the human will tell the ponies about nuclear weapons. Trust me, been there. I'd just as soon avoid that topic in your story.

Trust me. I expected that to happen at some point :raritywink:

Just thought it made the chapters more interesting :twilightblush: I'll change that eventually :twilightsmile:

Alex has yet yo say 'No' to any pony, if he doesn't do that they have an excuse to hunt him like an animal

5110442 Trust me. It won't be that easy...

He's like a pony seeking missile when he falls or gets slingshot from a tree. :rainbowlaugh:

“I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN WHEN I SAW THAT SIGN THAT SAID ‘PONYVILLE’ ON IT!!!”

oh I enjoyed the cartoon-ish writing of this haha. You have my attention :derpytongue2:

OMG this is SO out of character from bot AJ and Twillight :twilightoops: but it is SOOOOO FUUUUN :rainbowlaugh:
I get the whole being blinded by money and fame thing. And you are doing it very well :twilightsmile:
Buuuuuuuuuuuuut I don't think it is something ALL the mane six would do. :unsuresweetie:
otherwise the humor in this story genius, I've really missed a Fanfic with good old cartoon cliché humor. :pinkiehappy: and you execute it soooo well :pinkiehappy:
I really look forward to what the CMC and pinkie is going to do with him (especially pinkie:pinkiecrazy: ).:trollestia: HEHEHEhehehe he . . . ......
May His god have mercy on his soul :rainbowderp:

i think Applejack of all ponies would know that keeping him hostage like that is wrong. but then again, she does keep cows so i could be wrong. and spike isn't just there to do twilight's bidding so i think that he might have voiced his opinion on the matter once it was made clear that Alex didn't want to be held captive. an opinion that would probably mean Alex's freedom since twilight is the misguided one in that situation and she tends to only see her mistakes when others point them out for her.

Hey you took my advise and postet here to. Good job.:pinkiehappy:

The comedy is a little too heavy handed at times for my taste. Ah... as I write this I see that there is a Random tag on this story...so never mind, carry on.

I'm not-so-mildly impressed it took me this long for us to find a fic where Twilight treats a human like a lab rat, like Alex said. Good job so far.

Slave labor? Well, maybe not, he would be more of a jester, but...
You know what, considering how gullible and outlandish-minded ponies are, I can see them not taking dignity into account of other species.

Alex just failed his second Speech skill check. Let's hope that with the third pony, he spills the beans far and wide that he does NOT want to be used.

Wow. The writing style of this first chapter is *incredibly* annoying. It's like someone trying (and failing) to write a first-person :pinkiehappy: story. Are the other chapters like this also?

5111079 Don't worry. Fame and money will not be the only goal for the rest of the Mane Six :raritywink:

5111419 Don't judge the ponies too harshly. Their motives might seem misguided, but a valuable lesson is not far behind.

5111466 I hope it comes from a guilt trip on the realization train :unsuresweetie:
