I am God...apparently? - CrossRedstone

Lauren Faust wakes up one day in Equestria and guess what? Celestia and Luna tell her that A: she's the queen and B: they're her daughters. How will she cope? Will she stay or try to find a way back? Oh and she's an alicorn, of course.

Out of nowhere

A few days earlier

"Spike, have you seen the second volume of Magical Artifacts and You?"

"You left it on the nightstand." The dragon replied from within the kitchen.

"Ah, thank you!" Twilight shouted back and headed upstairs. Without Spike I would probably never get anything in order. she thought, giggling. She found the book exactly where Spike told her it would be. Grabbing it with her magic, she walked back downstairs and put it back into the shelf.

"Tidy up library, check." Twilight unfurled a scroll and picked up a feather, marking the task as “checked”. "Let’s see, with this done the next task for today is…of course. How could I forget about the picnic with the others. Well, that’s why I keep these checklists and have Spike. Speaking of....Spike? Do you want to come along for a picnic?" she asked.

"No can do Twi." Spike came out of the kitchen. "I promised to help Applebloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo try to get their cutie marks in hoofball playing."

Well at least it’s something safee. Twilight thought to herself. "Okay, I'll see you later today. Don't be late for dinner!"

"Yeah, yeah. Bye Twi." Spike waved his claw, looking for the ball. Luckily it was a Sunday, so the library was closed. Twilight happily trotted through Ponyville, smiling to the ponies she met on the way towards the fields on the outskirts of Ponyville, next to a cherry tree to be precise. Just a few months ago, she would have laughed at anypony who told her she would be friends with some....let's say unique ponies.

How things change. I wonder what would have happened if I would have met them earlier in my life. Oh well, I'm glad I met them at all. she thought to herself.

It didn't take her long to arrive at the picnic place, where she found Rainbow Dash relaxing on a borrowed cloud and Rarity telling Fluttershy about her newest fashion line, Applejack and Pinkie Pie had brought the food this time and they were complimenting each other and exchanging recipes.

“Heya Twilight!” Pinkie Pie appeared next to the mare, although Twilight could have sworn the other pony had been at the side of Applejack just a moment ago. As a result, the purple mare let out an involuntary shriek.


“Gotcha!” the pink party pony “booped” Twilight snout, before rejoining her friends. Everyone got a good laugh out of it, at least, even Twilight. She greeted the rest of her friends and joined them on the blanket.

"Where have ya been?" Rainbow asked, rolling onto her back.

"Sorry, I decided to take some work off from Spike's shoulders and clean up the library myself. He has done so much for me in his life, I decided to give him some more free time."

"That's so nice of you, darling." Rarity complimented. "You're right. He's always such a gentledragon and always so dedicated into helping others."

"So," Twilight settled next to Pinkie Pie "anything interesting happening lately?" she asked.

Just then Pinkie Pie's tail started twitching uncontrollably. "Oh no." Twilight muttered.

"Everypony take cover!" Rainbow shouted. They all quickly ran to the nearby tree, looking frantically up in the sky. "Do you see anything?" Fluttershy asked timidly.

"No." Pinkie replied.

"P-perhaps it's a false prediction." Rarity offered.

"Ah sure ain't gonna tempting fate." Applejack stated, looking at her with a deadpan expression.

"Wait a moment. Something is strange." Twilight said all of a sudden.

"What do you mean? Oh! Do you have like a Twily sense?" Pinkie asked excited.

"No darling, I feel it too." Rarity supplied. "It's a unicorn thing."

"Well, what IS that unicorn thing?" the cyan pegasus asked impatiently.

"It's like a sixth sense unicorns have." Twilight explained to the others. "We can sense it when a spell is being cast. If the unicorn is powerful, it can detect even really weak spells. The fact that Rarity can feel it, means it's a really powerful spell. Oh, er...no offense."

"None taken, darling. Still, I wonder if it is just coincidence that we feel this aura and at the same time Pinkie's sense is reacting."

"Maybe it's because of the really sparkly thingy over there." Pinkie pointed her hoof towards her upper left. The others followed with their gazes and soon found out what she meant. A clear white crystal spewing red sparks was floating not too far away from them.

"Stay back, girls." Twilight advised, motioning her friends to back up.. The red sparks began to spin around the crystal, and a deep vibration filled the air. "I don't know what's happening." Twilight stammered. "But we should really take cover. Now!" Suddenly, the low humming stopped and the whole meadow seemed to freeze in place briefly. That moment was ruined as the transparent crystal exploded. It sounded like somepony broke a window with a sledgehammer. A red flash illuminated the entire field and as fast as it started, it was over.

The six mares came out of their hiding spot to look at the aftereffects of the crystal explosion.

What they saw made their jaws drop. Twilight, Rarity, Applejack and Rainbow Dash, each of their expression was a mixture of awe and shock. Fluttershy’s had a bit of fear written over her face, while Pinkie picked up her jaw rather quickly and brought her trademark smile.
Hovering in mid-air, wings tucked tight to her sides, was a white alicorn with a red mane and tail! Her cutie mark was an ink bottle and a black quill. The girls gasped and rushed to the unconscious alicorn.

"An alicorn..." Fluttershy said in awe.

"Well, ah'll be...." AJ was at a loss for words.

Nopony really knew what to say in this kind of situation. Twilight noted the pained expression on the alicorn's face. The purple mare stepped closer and put her foreleg at the alicorn's forehead. She gasped.

"Oh my gosh! She's practically burning up! We need to get her to the hospital!"

"What?!" Rarity exclaimed. Fluttershy’s mother instincts immediately kicked in and she flew over, seeing if she could help. But Twilight had already had a plan.

"Rainbow! I need you to get Spike to send a letter to the princess - tell her what’s going on I’m going to teleport with her to the hospital!"
In a flash of light, she and the alicorn were gone.


In the Ponyville Hospital, the receptionist was just filing away a few papers, when all of the sudden two ponies appeared via teleport. The receptionist was so startled, she dropped all the papers to the ground. She was ready to give the ponies a stern talking, when she found one of them unconscious in Twilight's magic grip. Another good moment of looking at her, revealed that there was a freaking alicorn!


Princess was unconscious.

Unconscious Princess= Execution

That was the thought process of the receptionist. Since the Nightmare Moon incident was still fresh on everypony's mind, it wasn't that long ago after all, she immediately called for a doctor.
