Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Doctor Sam Beckett led an elite group of scientists into the desert to develop a top secret project, known as QUANTUM LEAP. Pressured to prove his theories or lose funding, Doctor Beckett, prematurely stepped into the Project Accelerator and vanished. He awoke to find himself in the past, suffering from partial amnesia and facing a mirror image that was not his own. Fortunately, contact with his own time was made through brainwave transmissions, with Al, the Project Observer, who appeared in the form of a hologram that only Doctor Beckett could see and hear. Trapped in the past, Doctor Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, putting things right, that once went wrong and hoping each time, that his next leap will be the leap home.

This leap, Sam is in the life of Lero Michaelides. As such, he has to solve a mystery, the loss of one of Lero's loves. How will Sam react to being in a world of sapient, talking ponies? Well... read on to find out.

I know most readers will have no clue about the show Quantum Leap, but trust me, it was awesome. Check out it's wikipedia page if you want to know more, and watch it!! Seriously, Watch it!!!

Have Quantum Leap in my Netflix ready to view. But I must say that it's been sitting there for a while because I can't get enough motivation to start.

Then I read this description and now I'm immediately on my way to do so. You know you did a wonderful summery when it inspires one to check the source material!

Good on you to do this kind of crossover mate.

I would have been very disappointed if the first chapter didn't end with Scott Bakula saying "Oh boy."

Gotta say that I loved Quantum Leap as a kid.

"Oy Vey, I'm the Rabbi." :rainbowlaugh:

5159932 I've been a big fan of Quantum Leap for a long time. I saw on the Xenophilia HQ that there was the beginning of a story, but it hasn't been updated for years, add in the fact the author apparently hasn't signed in in over a year, I decided to give the story the treatment it properly deserves. I hope you enjoy the continuation.


5159870 Why thank you! I love the Quantum Leap stories, I've even read a couple of the books. But my muse just grabbed my ear last night and said I had to write this. So, I did. And my pre-reader was ecstatic about the opening, so I ran with it. I hope you enjoy the rest as it comes out.

When did spoke join the herd granted I haven't read all the side stories

5159979 Spike joined with Twilight. He's got his own room, instead of a basket at the end of Twilight's bed. He's like the little brother of the herd.

well mate. You beat me to it. *deletes docs*

You, you, you Scooby Doo deserve a Scooby Snack! This is Fantastically awesome! I love Quantum Leap, and doing it like this...

I shall favor this, like it, and you will get a follow!

A very nice start. Granted it's been years since I last watched Quantum, from memory you seem to have captured the spirit very nicely so far. Can't wait for more.

nice start, but I think the dialogue needs some sprucing so that Al ALL exposition. I also don't think Al would pass up the oppurtunity to compare one of his ex wives to a horse

5160895 Can't put all the jokes in the first two chapters, lol.

This story brings back a lot of fond memories of my childhood. I'm really glad you're writing this. Thank you.

5161260 You are very welcome my friend!

I can't believe I stumbled onto this jewel.

The dialogue really does need tweaking. It just seems too formal to fit the characters I remember from back in the day. I really expected our trusty hologram to have a bit of a freakout about the land of magic talking ponies. When Al arrived at Crispy's, I half expected him to say some thing like," If I weren't see'n it with my own eyes, I'd think this Lero guy was high on something.".

Holy shit, I love quantum leap

"Is everything here a horse pun?" :rainbowlaugh:

I can so hear Sam saying this, and I can't wait for Al's zingers. I'm loving this!

Oh man, I'm both glad and excited that someone decided to continue with the Quantum Leap Xeno story. I had long since given up hope of seeing that continued. Thank you Sparky Brony for being willing to pick up the reins and bring a new take on Sam's experience with Lero's world.

I would agree with Starbuck in that while it does feel familiar to the Quantum Leap we all know and love, the dialogue doesn't quite fit. I think that the first version of the story felt a little closer to an episode of Leap in dialogue. Either way, I look forward to reading future chapters!

5161276 Just had a thought, as you hadn't mentioned this in the description, but....

5168593 lol, damn, don't go away giving all my plans away. I plan incorporating much of the parts of the show into this story.

I loved that show. Until the final episode almost ruined whole thing for me. I've tried pretending that end to the series didn't happen.

Eh, the whole "Lero turns suicidal" feels like a bit of a stretch, but I can glance over it. I've been debating over whether or not to watch this show on Netflix (and has been recommended to me by it and some friends), but I've never been too interested in it till now. Let's see how this fanfic goes.

hmmm Discord seems like a nice way to fill in the usual knowledge up and down the timeline that is missing being in another universe. Nice play on that.

*epic face Palm* Really should have seen that coming.

I'm not sure if Lero had any interaction with Discord on a face to face basis in the original Xenophilia. Still it's rather nice that Discord at least seems to care.

5170558 Honestly, I could see Dash going all suicidal, while trying to find Twi, and then that causing Lero to break, but possibly not prior.

5170558
5171873
Ah, but remember, Discord isn't really known for his honesty. His why doesn't really matter, it's what he's done that does.

5171409
Not in the original Xenophilia, but in Divided Rainbow he did.

5172491
However, we can't make that assumption. Discord has always been shown, canon-wise, to be a prankster and troublemaker. To out right lie about something that serious would be OOC for him. However, that also doesn't mean he wouldn't, which is why I said "stretch" rather than "break" [the suspension of disbelief].

Right now, the only assurances that we can make are those that the author tells us. Discord said Leroy goes suicidal after Sparks (:twilightsmile:) goes missing, and we don't have any real evidence to show that he is lying.

I like your story, especially because it has characters from one of my favorite series

and it is this old TV series but still great do

greetings and good luck

5172643 I have been thinking, and you guys are right, while Lero is in love with Twilight, her loss wouldn't be enough for him to take his own life, though I could see Rainbow losing it that badly, I think I will adjust the scene.

Note: I was following the beginning of the original version of this story, so I was using what was written as a springboard. I can adjust and adapt, I want this story to be enjoyed, and I'll add a little but from AL, I can't believe I missed that.

5161485 I rewatched a couple of episodes on Netflix, I had forgotten how much Al follows little Al around. Some sprucing is forthcoming.

5172643
You have a good point, though I never take anything he says at face value.

5172573
You should, it is very good.

I have adjusted the dialogue and a few details of chapter 2 and 3 per some informative comments earlier. I hope you like the changes. :twilightblush:

I DON'T EVEN NEED TO READ BEFORE I FAVE, I GREW UP IN THE '90S WATCHING THIS. TIME FOR AN OLD SCHOOL RESET.

5173581
It was/is in my read later bookshelf. I'll get to it tonight.

O_O NO BLOODY WAY. SOMEONE ELSE WHO ACTIVELY WATCHES THIS SHOW. WOT. WOT. :pinkiegasp:

5175739 Eeyup, I haven't watched it for about 3 or 4 years, but I queued it up on Netflix for research yesterday...

There's the wife joke I was waiting for! And also, Discord seems a good enough explaination for why he's there, for me anyway:twilightsmile:
Liking this story so far, favoriting, and hope to see more of this:pinkiehappy:

That last paragraph is very moving. Keep up the great work.

What a twist. Way to ramp up the interest.

Oh my God, I can't believe that some one remembers this show!
Welcome 213, I like this little twist on all this it's great.
And the part with Discord and how Sam's fate are in other hands, priceless, then add in thing from both universes.
Lovely, keep up the work :twilightsmile:

a vary interesting story to say the lest I will admit I am not reading lero as you have it to save the story line I will not put down the name I am using as it is from a different story I am sure sparkle brony knows the story vary well.
do keep up the work on this story it seams to be moving really well.
PS I thought it was going to need a adult tag for a minuet :heart:

We'll after reading four chapters, I decided to see what xenophillia was, as I had never heard of it before. After going on TV tropes and reading what it's all about I realized that that story is not for me. However, being a HUGE Quantum Leap fan I definitely enjoyed that aspect. Can't wait for the next chapter.

5183737 I do not plan on this story being cloppy at all. This story is about Sam and Al fixing a problem that would otherwise not be fixed. Stay around and enjoy I hope you enjoy.

5183737 I'm pretty much in the same boat. Loved Quantum Leap, Xenophillia though... not my cup of tea.
