12: Reviewing the Situation.

I did a quick scan over the room, in which I found a collective of shock and surprise on their faces.

“So does this mean that we can move stuff with our minds now?” Scootaloo piped up.

I admit, that gotten me curious, “I’m not exactly sure if all of you would do the exact same thing that Rarity did. After all, not all of your counterparts were unicorns.”

“What do you mean by that?” Celestia asked.

“Let me try something,” I walked over to Rainbow’s desk and told her to get out of her seat and stand on top of her desk. When she did, I told her, “Try jumping off and fly a little.”

She looked behind her back, “But I don’t have wings.”

“And she doesn't have a horn,” I pointed to Rarity to make this point, “But that didn’t stop her.”

“I don’t know if I-” I snapped my fingers, making the desk she was standing on to disappear right under her. Now here’s the part where I press the slow-motion button to see what I saw. At the first few inches, her eyes widen as her brain realized she was falling. Her mouth opens and her legs began to adjust to the upcoming floor. Suddenly, about halfway down, we saw from her back had sprung open with blue wings as that was outlined by a blue light. Before she could touch the ground, her wings materialized to where there was a physical form, and those said wings had flapped in time to keep her off the floor. And now, press play, “Huh?” Rainbow looked down.

Celestia, Luna, and Faust’s jaws hit the floor.

“Dash!” Scoot’s called out, getting out of her desk, “You’re flying!”

Rainbow looked around for a bit, “Okay, that’s weird.”

“That’s, weird?” Luna questioned, “Rainbow Dash, you’re flying, in the air, and your response is, ‘that’s weird’?!”

“How are you even doing that?” Twilight asked, getting out of her seat as well, trying to feel around for wires.

“Well, it did happen before, just not exactly like this,” Rainbow responded.

“This happened before!?” Faust got out of her seat as well.

“Well yeah,” Pinkie answered, “But usually there’s singing, and our hair grows longer, and we get pointy ears-”

“Y’all mean yer band practice?” Applebloom interrupted.

“What?” Faust asked in complete confusion.

“Hold on everyone,” Sunset called out, and we looked at her, “Discord?”

“What?” we both asked, she rolled her eyes. “I mean the Discord from Equestria. If what you’re saying is true, and that there’s now actual, real magic in the human world that’s spreading, how far has it got to?”

“Let me see,” he turned back to the chalkboard and whipped it clean before drawing a circle with a line down the middle before it reached the center of it. The line moved clockwise, revealing a map of the whole country plus a few others. We noticed that our town was at the very center of this chalky radar. The second way around the board, the line was making a “Pong!” sound, revealing a cloud that encompassed about a third of the country from where we were.

“Fascinating,” I muttered, trading my coat for a navy blue coat with a parrot and an eye-patch. “So does this mean that all the magic that they’ve unleashed is all in the middle?”

“Yep,” my other self nodded. “By the looks of it… I think it’s growing a bit.”

Faust came right up front of the board to take a good look at where the magic is. “Excuse me, would either of you mind if I step out for a moment.”

“Sure,” my other self said, reaching into his pocket and giving her a card that was on a yarn necklace. “Just don’t forget your hall pass.”

She opened her mouth but shaking her head, she closed it and took the pass as she heads out the door, putting a hand over her hear.

“Agent M, this is Agent F, could you take a look at anything strange within a nine-hundred-mile radius from here?” So with that, she stepped out of the door.

“So,” Sunset said, “Does this mean that I have my magic back now? If that were true, then that would mean that I might be…. What? I’m the second most powerful pon- person on earth?”

“Make that third,” my other self said. “As far as powerful ponies go in this room, you are third compared to us,” he stretched his arm around my shoulder. “And even then, we’re still a close second to her?”

“Do you mean Twilight?” Fluttershy asked.

“Nope, I mean their mother,” he looked over to Celestia and Luna. “I must sadly admit that no one, not even me, holds so much as a flashlight compared to Madame Faust. Trust me, even before I was ever turned into stone, she and I had a fight and… let’s just say that the universe that I know and love was extremely lucky that it’s still there at all.”

Wait… What did he mean by that?

“But, what do we do now?” Celestia inquired, “I mean we’ve just learned that everybody within a nine-hundred-mile radius from our town now has, well, magic but we’re the only ones to have realized this.”

“Oh dear, she’s right,” Shimmer said, turning a bit pale. “If word gets out that everyone has magic that no one has any idea of what to do or how to work it properly, the result might be total chaos.”

“Not a bad trade-off if you’d ask me,” my other self replied.

“She’s right,” Sweetie Belle chimed in, “Plus, we don’t know what kind of powers everyone now has! I mean, what if bad guys hear about this, like Sombra, or even worse?”

“Well you do have a point,” I muttered, thinking back to all the ones that I know who are in jail and the Mental Hospital. Names popped in my head. Names like Gregor, Somnablua, Tirek, Sombra, and Chrysalis. What if they realized they had powers too, what would they do with it given their past record?

Or even frightening still, would Principal Cadence use her magic to be an out of control cupid?

“WHAT?!” Faust’s voice shirked from behind the door. “WHERE?!” her demands silenced everyone and their thoughts for a moment before her head popped from behind the door. “Celestia, Luna, it looks like I’m going to have to run now. It seems that I’m going to get quite busy for a while. Julius, would either you or you're other you please show me out? It’s a maze outside of this room and I don’t want to get lost in here. Also, thank of you dears so much for what you’ve done here.”

“You’re welcome,” I said, and with that, I had her teleported outside of my house.
