Just Dropping In

It was a beautiful day for Ponyville. And as such, ponies were heading to the outskirts of town to the lake. Nearly every pony imaginable was setting up for a wonderful day at the beach. And along with everypony, the Mane Six too was also setting up for the same thing. Rarity was on a blanket sunbathing. Applejack was playing with Winona tossing her a Frisbee for the dog to catch. Fluttershy was setting up food along with Pinkie Pie, who was being cheerful and energetic as always. Twilight was setting up a telescope on a hill nearby with Spike. Rainbow Dash was over on the edge of the lake entertaining the fillies and colts. Among them was Applebloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo.

"Alright, kiddos. You ready for this?" Rainbow Dash asked to the pony children excited.

"Yeah!" shouted all the kids even more excited than the Pegasus.

"Then, hold your breath!" Rainbow Dash said before she shot up straight into the sky. When she was high enough she took careful aim before she began falling. She curled up into a ball and shouted, "Sky Cannon Ball!" She then crashed into the lake creating a big wave.

The children screamed out in joy an excitement as the wave headed right for them. The crashed down on them and carried them out into the lake. After a few seconds, the fillies and colts popped up from the water smiling and laughing. Scootaloo shouted, "That was awesome!"

Eventually, Rainbow Dash popped up from the water too. She laughed before shouting, "Alright! Who's up for around two?"

"Yeah!" shouted the pony children excited.

Back on the beach, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie were finished setting up. Pinkie Pie shouted, "Everyone! Food's ready!"

"Alright!" Applejack said happily as she and Winona stopped playing and trotted over to the blanket.

"Finally." Rarity said grateful as she got up from her sunbathing spot.

"About time!" Spike shouted eagerly as he ran up the blanket. "I'm starving."

"Is Twilight going to join us?" Fluttershy asked speaking to Spike.

"She's way too into her observation study to come over." Spike stated as he picked up a sandwich. "I'll bring her something after I'm done eating."

"What's she observing from over there?" Applejack asked as she looked over at Twilight curious.

Spike took a bite into his sandwich. He spoke in between chewing, "She's…observing some…cloud formation…You can actually see it from here. See!" Spike then pointed out pass the lake.

The group of ponies looked out to see what Spike was talking about. In the distance, the group saw a very large cloud, much bigger than even Cloudsdale, which floated high above most clouds.

"What, that?" Applejack said unimpressed. "Shoot, that's a large rain cloud."

"I have to agree with Applejack." Rarity said just as unimpressed as her friend. "What's so special about this cloud?"

"It's a special cloud that's existed for hundreds of years." Spike said before finishing his sandwich.

Fluttershy gasped in surprise. "A cloud that's hundreds of years old. Did the weather team forget to clear it away?" She questioned mildly concerned.

"No, actually." The group turned as Twilight spoke and walked onto the blanket. She sat down and took a sandwich to eat. Before she could, she spoke to Spike. "You were talking too long Spike, I got really hungry."

"Sorry." Spike said apologetically.

"What do you mean, Twilight?" Pinkie Pie said asking about the cloud.

"It's called a 'Millennium Cumulonimbus'." Twilight explained. "It's been studied by countless ponies dating back a thousand years ago. It's a super-dense cloud formation that doesn't produce rain or ascend higher."

Joining the group, Rainbow Dash landed on the blanket. "What are you talking about?" She asked before grabbing a sandwich of her own.

"A very large cloud that doesn't make any rain." Fluttershy said informing her friend.

"What! That's impossible." Rainbow Dash said in disbelief before taking a bit out of her sandwich.

"It's true." Twilight said as she brought forth a book with her magic. She then used it to open the book to a page with a picture of the cloud formation in question. Twilight then explained, "Because it's so dense, Pegasus ponies can't diffuse it like normal clouds. It simply floats around the world using an air current. And because of its density, it can completely block out the sun wherever it goes making it 'night time' in the 'day time'."

"Whoa…" said most of the group surprised.

"Wow! It's a super amazing mystery cloud!" Pinkie Pie stated excitedly.

"It really is." Twilight said agreeing with Pinkie.

"But that would be scary though." Fluttershy spoke sounding frightened. "Day time just suddenly turning into night. It would be like what happened with Nightmare Moon."

"That's not all." Twilight stated. "The ponies who had studied the Millennium Cumulonimbus has have mentioned that there were 'giant ponies' that lived beneath it."

"R-Really!" Fluttershy shouted sacredly.

"Don't worry." Twilight said confidently. "It's just myth from long time ago. There's no such thing as 'Giant Ponies'."

"Aww~." Pinkie Pie said disappointed.

"Anyway, it's a good thing that cloud is far away from here." Rarity said feeling a bit relieved. "It ruined what is a perfect day.

"Yeah!" Rainbow Dash shouted full of vigor. "Enough cloudy business. Let's have fun!"

"Yeah!" cheered the rest of the Mane Six and Spike.

Spike: Wealth, Fame, Power. Gold Roger, the King of Equestria, had attained this and even more ruling over our fair kingdom.

Twilight: But my brother, Luffy, is where this story focuses on. He left for an adventure that would stretch from Equestria and beyond.

Luffy: And also! Twilight and her friends joined up with us too!

"Just Dropping In"

As the day continued on, most of the Mane Six was playing with the Frisbee with Winona scampering around in between them. Only Rarity, who was far more interested in relaxing and sunbathing, and Twilight were not a part of their game. Twilight continued her study of the cloud formation far from Ponyville. Spike, being a faithful assistant, was right next to her ready to help, though looked rather bored. As Twilight looked away from the telescope to write down her observation, she caught sight of Spike and seeing him watch the others play.

"You know, Spike," Twilight said with a smile gaining the baby dragon's attention. "You can go play. I've got everything handled here."

"Seriously? Alright!" Spike shouted as he ran down the hill. He shouted to the group, "Hey! Toss me the disk!"

"You~ got it, Spikey!" Pinkie Pie shouted as she caught the Frisbee and then tossed it at Spike.

Twilight smiled seeing Spike having fun. She then returned to her observation study. After writing down a few of her observation, Twilight looked back into the telescope and began to shift the scope around. She spoke out loud for no one to hear, "If only I could go up there and take samples. What makes those clouds so unique…?"

As Twilight looked over the large formation of clouds her sight came across something else in the sky. "Huh?" She said as she moved her scope around to find what she had saw. It didn't take long for to find what she saw. She gasped in surprise, "Is that a…"

"Watch out!" shouted Rainbow Dash's voice.

Suddenly, the Frisbee hit Twilight's telescope messing up her alignment. Twilight stepped back in shock. Following after the Frisbee, Winona came knocking over the telescope. Twilight gasped in shock. "No!" She shouted.

"Oops." Rainbow Dash said as she flew to Twilight looking apologetic. "Sorry, Twilight."

"Everything okay over here?" Applejack asked as she and everyone rushed over to Twilight's side.

Twilight didn't seem to hear or even notice the group. She quickly set her telescope back up and began looking for what she had found. This made the rest of the Mane Six and even Spike worry about her.

"Um, Twilight?" asked Fluttershy as she approached the unicorn. "Is this a bad time?"

"Twilight, dear, whatever are you looking at?" Rarity asked as she peered in the same direction that the telescope was pointed towards.

"Yeah, Twi." Rainbow Dash said landing next to Twilight.

Finally, Twilight spoke, "There's…a boat being carried down by a balloon octopus."

No one responded immediately. All the ponies and dragon did was stare at Twilight blankly. None of them were sure what to make of Twilight's statement. Then, Pinkie began to laugh. Everyone, but Twilight, looked at the pink mare confused.

"What's so funny?" Applejack asked to the pink mare.

Pinkie calmed down, but was still giggling. "That joke!" She shouted before giggling. "That's one of the silliest jokes I've ever heard."

"That was…a joke?" Rarity questioned unsure if Pinkie was being serious or joking herself.

"Oh, is this a joke, Twilight?" Fluttershy asked to Twilight.

Twilight looked up from the telescope. She looked over to Fluttershy. "No. I'm serious. There's a boat floating down by way of a balloon-like octopus holding onto the ship." Twilight stated clearly.

"It's not a joke?" Spike said confused. The rest of the group looked at Twilight just as confused.

Twilight huffed before she stepped to the side. "Look!" She said pointing to the telescope.

"Um, okay, Twi." Applejack said as the first of their friends to see. She walked up the telescope and gazed through it. In moments, the Earth pony gasped in surprise. "Well I'll be…its true! There is a boat and an octopus." Applejack said for all their friends to here.

"What?!" shouted the group surprised. All of them then used up to use the telescope to see what was up. Each one quickly took a turn.

"Goodness gracious…" Rarity said in disbelief.

"Oh my…" Fluttershy said in surprise.

"Whoa! It really wasn't a joke." Pinkie said surprised. But then, she began giggling a bit. She said, "But the octopus is silly."

"Whoa!" Spike said in amazement.

"I can't believe…" Rainbow Dash said in shock before cutting herself off. She had taken notice of something. She spoke her concern, "Um, is it me? Or is that thing descending kind of fast."

"What?" Twilight said surprised. Rainbow Dash stepped to the side to allow the unicorn to observe. Twilight kept the telescope focused on a spot until she began tilting it slightly. She then gasped. She said, "You're right!"

"Well, what does that mean?" Applejack asked confused. "Aren't they wanting to come down?"

"Not that quickly." Twilight said sounding worried. "If they descend too fast they'll crash."

"I would think that will happen anyway." Rarity spoke concerned. "There's no water out in that direction to soften the landing."

"Oh no! We have to do something." Fluttershy said extremely worried.

"Come on, Fluttershy!" Rainbow Dash said as she took to the sky. "I bet we can get a few other Pegasi to help move that thing closer to the lake. That should help."

"You're right." Fluttershy agreed and immediately took flight after Rainbow Dash. The two Pegasus ponies then took off.

Twilight turned to the group. "While they do that, we should warn everyone at the beach." She said to her friends.

"You got it, Twilight." Spike said readily.

"Yes, sir, ma'am, sir!" Pinkie Pie said in mock-salute being both confident and silly.

"We're on it." Applejack said determinedly.

"What are we waiting for?" Rarity said slight hurried. The earth-bound ponies and dragon then took off running with Winona behind them.

"Hey! Ponyville Pegasi!" Rainbow Dash shouted to the beach goers. The many Pegasi that were there immediately looked up. Rainbow Dash shouted again, "We've got an emergency! Follow us!"

"I-I-If you can." Fluttershy added a bit nervously.

Every adult Pegasi immediately took up flight. They all joined Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy in the sky before following them.

"Everyone!" shouted Applejack to the rest of the beach goers with the rest of the group behind her. "We've got something that'll be landin' in the lake! Clear the water and the beach quickly!"

The ponies heeded Applejack's warning and immediately began to gallop away from the beach.

The ponies in the water were a little confused by the shouting and other ponies running away. Then suddenly, Pinkie Pie shoot out of the water. She shouted to them overdramatically, "Everybody out of the water! A thing is coming! A thing is coming~!"

The ponies in the water screamed and immediately paddled to shore. Pinkie watched the screaming ponies while tilting her head in confusion. "Hey! This is not time to be freaking out. The thing could be here any minute." She said sounding more enthusiastic than horrified.

"Pinkie! Hurry up and get out of the water!" Twilight shouted from shore extremely concerned.

Pinkie laughed. "Okie dokey lokey!" She said as she used her tail as a motor to head back to shore.

Meanwhile, Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy led the Ponyville Pegasi towards the falling boat. Being one of the fastest flyers, Rainbow Dash was already flying way ahead of the group. As such, she could already see the boat. It looked to be falling a little faster. Rainbow Dash moved her wings faster. As she did, she begun to hear voices.

"Ahhh! We're falling! We're falling!"

"This is bad! At this rate, we'll smash into the ground!"

"Usopp, what're you doing?!"

"What else?! Protecting the ship!"

Rainbow Dash caught up with the ship immediately. She could see seven ponies; two Earth ponies, two unicorns, a Pegasus, and…a raccoon? She watched as a yellow coat, unicorn stallion suddenly climb onto the railing of the boat wearing something weird on his hooves. He seem to hook something on the railing and then jump off the boat.

"Whoa!" Rainbow Dash shouted and immediately moved into action.

"Usopp Aa-aa-aa!" The stallion shouted as he held onto a rope connected to the ship. But suddenly, he was caught by two cyan hooves. "What?" He said confused and looked over his shoulder to see Rainbow Dash.

"Hey! I don't know if there's magic to make you fly, but this is really dangerous!" Rainbow Dash said sternly.

"Where'd you come from?" The stallion said shocked.

"Doesn't matter." Rainbow Dash said hurriedly as she flew Usopp back onto the ship.

The ponies on board gasped as the cyan Pegasus return their friend. Once safely putting the unicorn safely aboard, Rainbow Dash looked over at the light-orange coat, orange mane, Pegasus. She immediately grabbed her leg. "Come on, pal. We're gonna need your help too!" Rainbow Dash said hurriedly.

The light-orange Pegasus was shocked. "Wha-What?!" She shouted.

"Come on!" Rainbow Dash said as she pulled the Pegasus into the air.

"Nami!" shouted the group of ponies shocked.

Rainbow Dash brought the Pegasus Nami around the back of the boat. She then let go of Nami's leg. She explained, "There's a lake not too far from here. We can put your boat there safely."

"J-Just us?!" Nami said shocked.

Rainbow Dash rolled her eyes. "Of course not." She said.

"Rainbow!" The two Pegasi looked over as Fluttershy and the other Ponyville Pegasi arrived. Immediately, all the Pegasi gathered around the ship. They all then began to slow and move the boat's descent.

Watching from above, the group of ponies watched on in amazement. "Awesome~!" shouted a red Earth pony stallion, the yellow unicorn Usopp, and the raccoon-thing. The others were just as amazed though speechless.

"Good job, Fluttershy." Rainbow Dash said with gratitude.

"Thank you." Fluttershy replied happily.

"Let's help them out." Rainbow Dash said to Fluttershy and Nami. She then flew up to the rear of the ship and began pushing. Fluttershy immediately flew to help. While hesitant, Nami eventually moved to the same position and began moving the boat along with the rest of her kind.

With all of Ponyville's able Pegasi population plus one Nami, they were able to slow the boat down tremendously and move the boat towards the lake. Once the lake was in sight, the Pegasi began to lower the boat down. Once the boat touched the water, the Pegasi began moving away from the boat. Soon, it was only Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, and Nami pushing the boat.

"Alright…there!" Rainbow Dash said before all three Pegasi flew back. The boat sail to a slow before someone dropped an anchor.

"We made it!" shouted the red coat Earth pony excitedly.

"Yeah!" shouted Usopp and the raccoon-thing.

"Thank goodness." The navy blue coat, yellow man Earth pony said relieved.

The black coat, green mane unicorn stallion snorted. "That wasn't so bad." He said unfazed.

"You were freaking out like the rest of us, Marimo!" shouted Sanji in frustration.

"It is good that we landed safely." A unicorn with a dark purple coat and black mane said as she approached the side. "If it weren't for the timely arrival of our Pegasi friends, we would all be ripped to shreds and splattered on the ground."

Usopp and Chopper shivered. "That was horrid, Robin." Usopp said nearly scared.

"Hey!" The group turned as Nami returned on board. She looked a little tired, but she looked more worried. She spoke, "Is everyone alright?"

"Everyone is present and accounted for." Robin said relaxed.

"That's good to hear."

The group this time turned to see Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy flying in front of them. Rainbow Dash spoke, "Though, I'm curious as to how you got a non-flying boat this big in sky."

"That's a long story." The entire crew admitted plainly.

Robin approached the Pegasi. She asked the two, "Could you tell us where you have landed us?"

"Yeah," Rainbow Dash said. "You're in Ponyville, in the middle of Equestria."

Robin immediately went silent. She started to look worried.

Luffy soon spoke up looking excited, "Equestria? We're in Equestria!"

"Isn't that where you're from, Luffy?" Chopper questioned curious.

"Yeah!" Luffy said grinning happily.

"Anyway, thank you for your help." Nami spoke as she walked over to the two pegasi. "If you and your group wasn't flying nearby…"

Rainbow Dash immediately interrupted. "Actually, you guys got spotted by our friend from here." She stated.

"Really?" Nami said surprised

"Oh yes, if it weren't for Twilight… Well…you know…" Fluttershy said nervously.

The red stallion perked. "Twilight?" He said before he rushed over to the where two Pegasi were hovering.

"Luffy?" Zoro questioned concerned.

The red stallion rushed pass Nami, surprising the Pegasus. "Luffy…?" She said confused.

"Did you say, 'Twilight'?" Luffy asked to the Pegasi. "Like, 'Twilight Sparkle'?"

Both Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy looked at the Earth pony surprised. They both looked at each other before looking back at Luffy. Rainbow Dash spoke, "Uh…yeah."

"She's currently on the shore." Fluttershy added politely.

"What's up, Luffy?" asked Chopper concerned.

Luffy looked over at the shore. There were many ponies on the shore. A lot of them were the Pegasi from earlier now resting. Many ponies were helping them out. Among them, Luffy could spy a purple unicorn aiding the recovery of the Pegasi. Instantly, he knew it was Twilight and he grinned. He put his hooves on the railing and then stretched back. Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy gasped in shock seeing the stallion's legs stretch. The crew, except Robin, looked at Luffy surprised.

Nami spoke concerned, "Luffy? What are you…?"

"Gum-Gum Rocket!" Luffy shouted as he shot forward pass everyone. He then flew towards the shore and Twilight.

"Luffy!" shouted most of the crew still confused.

"Let him go." Robin said to the crew's surprise. She looked calm, even more calm than usual. She continued to say, "This is important for him."

"Really?" Usopp questioned.

"Yes…" Robin said as she looked out towards shore. What she had failed to mention, by choose, was that this was important to her as well. A student from long ago…

When the Pegasi returned with the ship in their hooves, Twilight breathed out a sigh in relief. Once the boat was in the water the most of the Pegasi landed straight on the beach. All of them were completely exhausted. Immediately, Twilight and her friends moved to aid them along with a few others. As Twilight oversaw the aid to the Pegasi, she suddenly felt a tingle through her whole body. It was an odd sensation, but one she was well familiar with. Only, she wasn't sure why she was feeling it after so long.


Twilight turned hearing her name, but it wasn't that it was her name that she turned. It was because she recognized the voice. Flying right towards her, Twilight saw Luffy, grinning like a fool. Her quick mind told her to immediately move out of the way, but her heart told her something much different. She let him collide with her.

"Twilight!" shouted Applejack, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Spike in shock.

However, Spike had an afterthought. This scene looked very familiar. "Wait…" He said.

Years of 'experience' had trained Twilight well to handle a sudden rubber collision. She and the 'object' rolled back until they finally stopped. When they stopped, Twilight looked up to see the grinning face of her brother, Luffy.

"Twilight!" Luffy said cheerful.

"Luffy!" Twilight shouted joyfully as she pushed up and hugged the stallion.

Applejack, Rarity, and Pinkie Pie stared at the scene completely shocked. Applejack spoke first, "What the…"

"I don't even…" Rarity said unable to finish her thought.

"Whoa! He sure flew fast for an Earth pony." Pinkie Pie said amazed.

"Luffy!" Spike shouted as he ran over to the two ponies.

Twilight separated from Luffy hearing Spike. Luffy turned around, still grinning, and spotted the baby dragon. He shouted, "Spike!"

"I can't believe your back already!" Spike shouted as he and the pony fist-hoof bump greeting.

"Yeah, I didn't think I'd be back so soon." Luffy said grinning.

"When did you get here, Luffy?" Twilight asked curious.

"Just a few minutes ago." Luffy said as he pointed towards the boat. At the moment, it was currently sailing towards shore.

Twilight gasped. "What? You were on the boat! Why?" She asked.

Luffy looked at Twilight as if she was weird. "Why wouldn't I be? I'm the captain." He stated.

"You are!" Twilight and Spike said amazed.

"Congratulations, Luffy!" Twilight said happily. "I always thought you'd join up with the Marines or maybe that Shanks pony, but being a captain of your own ship! That's amazing."

"Joining the Marines is lame." Luffy said lamely.

"Twilight!" The unicorn mare turned hearing her name. She saw her friends, all of them, come rushing over to her. They all seemed worried.

"Um, excuse me." Twilight said to Luffy before walking over to her friends. Luffy and Spike watched on.

Seeing Twilight, the group of ponies stopped. Applejack spoke, "Are you alright, sugar? That looked like a nasty crash."

"No, no, I'm fine." Twilight said assuring her friends. "I'm actually very used to this kind of stuff."

Rainbow Dash, along with everyone, looked at Twilight shocked. She then spoke in disbelief, "You're used to a pony that can stretch his arms to impossible lengths, rocket across half of the lake, and survive a crash without any harm?"

Twilight felt a little awkward hearing Rainbow Dash sum up her brother. Nonetheless, she nodded. "Yeah." She said smiling.

All of Twilight's friends' jaws dropped. It was from one part hearing the impossible feats that the stallion had performed and another part that Twilight was already knew this. All of them could only say one thing, "How…?"

Twilight laughed softly. "Luffy, could you come here please?" She asked with a smile.

"Okay!" Luffy said before walking over with Spike. Once there, he spoke, "What's up?"

"Everyone…" Twilight said to her friends with a proud smile. "This is my brother, Luffy."

"Brother?" The group said surprised.

"I didn't know you had a brother, Twilight." Fluttershy said curious.

"I have…quite a few brothers actually." Twilight said forcing a small smile. She did not want to worry her friends.

"Twi…" Luffy said softly knowing full what Twilight was thinking.

Twilight turned to her brother. This time, she was smiling truly. She said, "Luffy, these are my friends, Applejack…"

"Howdy." Applejack said tipping her hat.


"Charmed to meet a family member of Twilight's." Rarity said pleasantly.

"…Pinkie Pie…"

"We're totally going to have a party!" Pinkie shouted excitedly tossing confetti. "It's going to be a 'Welcome-to-Ponyville-Twilight's-Brother-and-Friends-Rescue' Party!"

"Awesome!" Luffy cheered equally as excited.

Twilight sighed knowing that she had opened up a large can-of-worms. She then continued to introduce her friends. "And you kind of meet Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy." She said.

"Oh yeah, you guys helped us. Thanks!" Luffy said cheerfully.

"Oh, it was no problem." Fluttershy said smiling cheerfully.

"Yeah, no…" Rainbow Dash said being friendly before she realized something from earlier. How Luffy was able to stretch. "Wait? Hold on! I've got a few questions for you, bud." Rainbow Dash said serious.

"Questions?" Luffy said confused.


Luffy looked around the group of mares hearing his name. He saw the Going Merry docked on the beach. He then saw his crew rushing over towards him. Luffy smiled, and turned to Twilight. "I'll be right back." He told her before galloping off to his crew.

"Wait! I'm not done with you." Rainbow Dash shouted frustrated. She was about to go after him, but she found she was being held back by her tail.

"Don't worry, Rainbow Dash." Twilight told the impatient Pegasus pony. "He'll be back as soon as he talks with his friends."

"Then maybe you could answer some of our questions then, Twi?" Applejack asked.

Twilight nodded. "I'll do my best." She stated confidently. She then told her friends what they wanted to know.

"Hey! Guys!" Luffy shouted to his crew as he ran towards them.

"Luffy!" shouted Usopp as he and everyone met with Luffy. He then spoke, "Why'd you leave us behind like that?"

Luffy laughed embarrassingly while scratching the back of his head. "Yeah, sorry. I was just excited to see my sister again." He stated.

The crew, except Robin, looked at Luffy surprised. Zoro spoke, "A sister?"

"You have a sister too!" Chopper said amazed.

"Yeah! She's over there with her friends." Luffy said smiling and then pointing over to the crowd of mares. Specifically, he was pointing to the purple unicorn.

"Oh, that must be the one that those two Pegasi were talking about." Nami said eyeing the unicorn curiously.

"Let me get this straight…" Sanji said looking very serious. "Luffy, you have a beautiful sister…"

"Yeah?" Luffy said slightly confused.

"And she is friends with those beautiful mares?" Sanji said pointing to the mares surrounding Twilight.

"I guess." Luffy said shrugging.

Sanji placed a hoof on Luffy's shoulder. He began shedding tears of joy as he looked at his captain in a newfound light. "I'll never doubt you again, Captain." Sanji said in utter bliss.

"Oh brother…" Usopp said annoyed.

"Come on!" Luffy shouted to his crew. "You gotta meet her and her friends!"

"Yes~, Captain~!" Sanji shouted in utter joy as he dashed towards the mares.

Zoro snorted. "Stupid cook…" He muttered also annoyed. He followed anyway with Usopp and Chopper following.

Nami was about to follow, but she quickly noticed that Robin was staying behind. She immediately spoke to her concerned, "Is something wrong, Robin?"

Luffy looked back too. But unlike Nami, who was confused by the older pony's behavior, Luffy was well aware of why she was acting as such. However, he didn't speak up just yet.

Robin, seeing both Nami and Luffy looking at her, gave out a soft smile. "I knew this would come up eventually…" She said as she finally moved forward. "It's one of the reasons I joined."

"Robin…" Nami said surprised.

"Don't worry." Luffy said with a big grin. "She'll be happy to see you again."

Robin smiled appreciating her captain's support. The three ponies then moved along to join their group. Luffy ran up ahead looking excited.

With some of Luffy's crew already in front of the Mane Six, Twilight has been introducing her friends to them. "My name is Twilight Sparkle," She said starting with herself. "And this is Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, and my assistant Spike."

"Yo." Spike said coolly.

"Hey!" Luffy shouted as he joined his crew. "This is Zoro…"

"Hey." Zoro replied.

"Are those…swords?" Rainbow Dash asked pointing to the three swords at Zoro's side. "And three of them. Isn't that excessive?"

Zoro snorted. "Not for this unicorn." He said proudly.

Rainbow Dash was impressed. "Nice." She said offering a hoof-bump. Zoro, feeling some sort of kinship, smiled and hoof-bumped back.

"…and this is Usopp." Luffy said continuing the introductions.

"But you can call me the 'Great Captain Usopp'! Brave warrior of the sea." Usopp boasted full of pride.

"Wow! Seriously?" Spike said in amazement.

Usopp grinned. He spoke, "Of course, in fact, I…"

"And this is Sanji." Luffy said interrupting the yellow unicorn.

Sanji smiled suavely. "Beautiful mare…" He said as he took the hoof of Rarity. "I have traveled far and wide and seen many wonders in this world, but they all pale in comparison to your beauty."

"Oh my…" Rarity said completely smitten by the royal blue Earth pony. She was even blushing. She spoke, "You are quite the gentleman."

"This is Chopper!" Luffy said continuing his introduction. "He's a reindeer!"

"R-Really!" Fluttershy said as she looked around from Applejack. She had gotten nervous meeting so many new ponies. But in seeing their smallest, and easily cutest, member, she had gotten excited.

"Ah!" And much like Fluttershy, Chopper too was nervous to meet new ponies. He hid behind Zoro, though he was position the reverse way of 'hiding behind someone'.

Fluttershy immediately pointed this out. "Um, not that I don't mind, but are you hiding backwards?" She asked shyly.

Chopper gasped and immediately corrected his position.

"Oh my." Fluttershy said surprised.

"Aw~, he's so cute." Pinkie Pie said gleefully.

Suddenly, Chopper stepped out from behind Zoro. He began blushing and wiggling about with embarrassment. "Don't think that I like you know, just because you called me cute, jerk~." Chopper said looking very happy, despite his contradicting sentence.

Pinkie Pie laughed. "And he's funny." She stated happy.

"He'll get better, trust me." Nami said to the yellow Pegasus pony.

"This is Nami!" Luffy said immediately.

"I'm the navigator. It's nice to meet you all." Nami said with a smile.

"Nice to meet ya too, Ms. Nami." Applejack greeted cheerfully.

"And finally…" Luffy said as his energy waned surprisingly. This caught everyone's attention. Luffy then moved revealing Robin.

Twilight immediately gasped in shock. "Robin-sensei…" She said quietly.

Robin smiled. "Hello, my little student." She said warmly.

Both groups looked completely surprised by the interaction between the two unicorns. The Mane Six was surprised that Twilight had another teacher. The Straw Hat crew was shocked to learn that Robin had a student. But what was even more shocking to them was that it seemed that Luffy knew about this.

"Luffy…" Nami spoke concerned. "What is going on…?"

"You!" Twilight shouted angrily towards. This surprised the Mane Six for they had never heard her so mad. Twilight stomped over to the older mare keeping her eyes right on her. Once she was right in front of Robin, she shouted again, "You! You! You…!"

"Her! Her! Her!" Pinkie Pie shouted faking anger. Her friends then looked at her with a stern glare. Pinkie Pie immediately back down laughing softly. "Hehe, sorry." She said with an apologetic smile.

"I've never seen Twilight so made before." Fluttershy said amazed.

Spike nodded in agreement, "Neither have I."

"Twilight…" Robin said frowning as she looked at the mare nearly her height. "I won't ask for your forgiveness."

Twilight looked at the older mare surprised, though kept her angry expression.

"I understand that you probably have many questions for me." Robin continued remaining calm. "But, I am not at a point where I am…comfortable explaining my past. I'm not sure if I'll ever will be."

"You left without saying good-bye…" Twilight stated while pouting in anger.

Robin nodded. "I did…" She said agreeing.

"I've learned a lot in your absence." Twilight stated acting distant. "I studied nearly every subject in school, even more from Princess Celestia. Including stuff beyond Equestria."

"I'm glad." Robin said happily.

"I help defeat Nightmare Moon, and the Elements of Harmony."

"Oh?" Robin said sounding intrigued.

"I wanted to learn as much as I could." Twilight said becoming increasingly quiet. "So I could eventually find you…"

Robin smiled softly. "That's sweet of you." She said before wrapping Twilight in a hug.

The young mare felt her iron will begin to break. In a matter of moments, she began hugging back. She was shedding tears. She spoke quietly, "I missed you."

Robin didn't say anything. She smiled and took in this moment hugging the younger mare.

"Aww~." All of Twilight's friends and Nami said as they were tearing up at this beautiful moment. Even the stallions and baby dragon found the scene touching. Most of them.

Zoro let out a big yawn expressing his boredom. He shouted out, "Okay, enough of the sappy stuff already."

Immediately, every member of the Straw Hat crew minus Robin hit Zoro. "Insensitive jerk!" They all shouted in rage. The Mane Six and Spike were surprised by the crew's reaction to their friend. Robin and Twilight broke from their hug they both looked at Zoro and then laughed.

Zoro growled with annoyance. "Anyway," He said grouchily. "What I was going to say is what are we going to do now?"

"What do you mean?" Usopp asked.

Nami caught on to what Zoro was saying. She immediately replied, "Well, we were going to sail to the closest island where we can get the Merry repaired."

"Ooh!" Luffy shouted as an idea came to mind. He looked over to Twilight and her friends. He shouted, "Hey! Do you guys have someone that could fix the Merry?"

"Your ship?" Twilight questioned as she looked over at the boat curiously.

"Sorry, folks." Applejack said apologetic. "I don't think there's a pony in town that can repair a boat."

"At least, not one for your size ship." Rarity added being thoughtful.

"Couldn't Twilight fix it with magic?" Spike suggested.

Usopp shook his head. "No can do. The Merry is resistant to magic." He stated.

"Really?" Spike questioned surprised.

"Oh, I've heard of this." Twilight said excitedly. "It's made from a special kind of wood grown outside of Equestria. They use it to build ships so unicorns couldn't sink accidently or otherwise."

"Indeed." Robin said impressed by her student's knowledge.

"Well, then…" Nami said speaking up. "I guess we'll have to sail to somewhere else."

"Aww~" whined Luffy, Usopp, Chopper, and Pinkie Pie glumly.

"Do you have to leave immediately?" Twilight spoke looking as glum as the others. "It'll take several days to travel down river to reach the ocean."

"Well…" Nami said as she thought over possibilities.

"And," Twilight added blushing embarrassed. "I haven't seen Luffy in a while. I would like to catch up and get to know all his friends."

Nami held a straight face at the mention of her captain. She looked over at Luffy, who seemed to be playing some game with Usopp, Chopper, and their new friend Pinkie Pie. She saw as Luffy noticed Twilight, and maybe even her, and grinned towards them while giving them a wave. Nami blushed slightly. She then smiled saying, "Why not. We're not in any rush."

Twilight gasped happily. "Thank you" She said before wrapping Nami in a hug.

"N-No problem." Nami said surprised.

"Woo-hoo!" Pinkie Pie shouted. "Time to party!"

"Party?" said the crew immediately interested.

"Yeah! The 'Welcome-to-Ponyville-Twilight's-Brother-and-Friends-Rescue' Party!" Pinkie Pie cheered excitedly.

"We're totally going to it, Pinkie!" Luffy shouted determinedly.

"We've never said no to a party before." Zoro stated eagerly.

Nami shrugged. "Why not." She said smiling.

"Alright! Party!" Usopp cheered.

"Yeah!" Chopper said cheering with Usopp.

"If it keeps these beautiful mares around, I'll party forever~!" Sanji said as he swooned over the Mane Six. He then stopped and turned his attention back to the mares of his group. He shouted, "Of course, I won't forget you Nami-swan~, Robin-chwan~."

Nami rolled her eyes annoyed. Robin simply laughed finding the man's affection amusing.

Spike gawked. "Eh, gross." He stated childishly.

"Yay!" Pinkie Pie shouted as she jumped in the air and tossed out confetti and streamers. When she landed, she pulled out a blow horn and hopped towards the pony crowd. She shouted to the crowd, "Hey, everyone! Party back at the Ponyville for our new guests!"

"Woo-hoo!" shouted the entire crowd.

"Oh! And for all the Pegasus ponies that helped them get here too!" Pinkie quickly added.

"Yeah!" shouted Bulk Biceps in particular while the many Pegasi cheered normally.

"Let's go!" Pinkie Pie cheered out as she led the ponies back to Ponyville hoping along the way. The Mane Six and Straw Hats followed closely behind.

We skip to the party already in progress. It was now evening, but no one was tired. And for the Straw Hats they had only begun to party. In fact, they were pretty much the life of the party. Usopp and Chopper showed off their special Chopstick-Nose dance.

"Come one, everypony! Dance~!" shouted Usopp as he and Chopper danced with chopsticks in their noses and protruding into their lower lips.

"Yeah~!" Chopper shouted.

Though the ponies originally found it odd, they couldn't help but laugh at the three and they right back. Even Pinkie Pie and Spike joined them in their dance.

"This is awesome!" Pinkie Pie shouted joyfully.

"This is the weirdest dance ever!" Spike said though laughing out with joy.

Rainbow Dash and Zoro had gotten into a drinking contest using hard apple cider (By American standards, hard cider has alcohol). Many ponies around them were cheering for their hometown hero. However, both competitors were far more interested in beating each other. They both smirked as they took another drink.

Rarity and Nami had a wonderful conversation about fashion and even business. "This is a wonderful design." Nami said to Rarity looking at her clothing designs. "And you make these yourself?"

"It's nothing, really." Rarity said flattered. "It certainly puts food one the table."

"I would love to buy a few dresses." Nami stated eagerly.

Rarity squealed. "Oh goodie! And since we are friends, you may take a few outfits free of charge." She stated overjoyed.

Suddenly, Nami jumped and hugged Rarity. "You're my new best friend." She cried out joyfully.

When he was done dancing, Chopper found himself with Fluttershy, who was practically gushing over how cute he was. "So, um, you're a reindeer?" She asked shyly.

"Yeah!" Chopper said before immediately changing into Walk Point.

Fluttershy gasped in surprise. "Oh my…" She said as she looked over Chopper's new form. She looked completely fascinated by him. She asked, "How can you transform like that?"

"I ate a Devil Fruit." Chopper stated.

"Really?" Fluttershy asked surprised. "Like the one Twilight's brother ate?"

"Sorta." Chopper stated. "He ate the Gum-Gum Fruit, I ate a different fruit that allows me to transform."

"Oh." Fluttershy said intrigued. As she looked over Chopper's form, she stopped right in front of him looking specifically at his nose. She spoke softly, "I've never seen a reindeer with a blue nose before?"

Chopper transformed back into Brain Point and immediately covered his nose embarrassed. He muttered sounding sad, "I bet you think it's weird, right?"

"Oh no." Fluttershy said immediately picking up Chopper's sadness. She smiled as she said, "I actually think it makes you look very unique."

Chopper blushed. "Y-Y-You think so…?" He said feeling a bit embarrassed. Fluttershy nodded still smiling. Chopper immediately began to wiggle and laugh embarrassed. He spoke, "D-Don't think that…"

"Aww, you are just too cute, Chopper." Fluttershy said cheerfully as she interrupted Chopper with a hug. The poor little reindeer nearly fainted from the warm hug.

Sanji had a night of romance as he went to every mare in town proclaiming his undying love for each one. Of course, he spent much time around the Mane Six. At the moment, he was hanging around Applejack. They both were playing a game.

"You've got some mighty fancy hoofwork there, fella." Applejack complimented as she bounced a ball off her head.

Next to her, Sanji was bouncing a ball as well though him his rear leg and while standing up too. He smiled towards Applejack replying, "Thank you, my dear."

"I've never seen a pony stand on their hindquarters for as long as you!" Applejack admitted impressed.

"Well, as a chef, I try to keep my front hooves from getting dirty while I prepare the meal." Sanji stated proudly.

"You're a cook, eh?" Applejack said surprised allowing the ball to fall off her head. Ignoring the game, Applejack walked over to Sanji. She spoke, "How about you and I go test out your cooking skill, hm?"

"Ah~! Of course, Mellorine~!" Sanji said completely in 'love-cook' mode allowing the ball to drop. He then followed Applejack probably towards a kitchen.

Near the Golden Oaks Library, Twilight was talking with Robin. The both sat outside enjoying a cup of coffee. She told Robin all about her life after her disappearance. Robin listened on intrigued. When Twilight finished, Robin detailed a story of how they, she and the crew, had climbed to the sky to find a city of gold and a Sky Island. Twilight listened completely astonished.

"You mean…there's a whole civilization of ponies in the Millennium Cumulonimbus!" Twilight said surprised.

"Yes." Robin said nodding. "Not just Pegasi, but also unicorns and Earth ponies. And they all have these unique, yet unusable wings."

"Oh, I wish I've could've joined you." Twilight said dreamily. "To discover a lost civilization. It's just like a Daring Do book."

Robin took a sip of her coffee. She then spoke, "There is much out there, my little student. You just need to go find it."

"Yeah! You should join us!" Twilight and Robin looked up and saw Luffy hanging upside down from a tree branch. He was grinning rather excitedly.

Twilight giggled. "I swear, if you weren't born a pony, you'd probably be a monkey." She said jokingly. But then, her thought turned back to her brother's offer. She spoke, "What do you mean, Luffy?"

"Come join my crew!" Luffy stated cheerfully before he jumped down from his branch. He landed before Twilight and Robin. He spoke, "Last time, you said you still had some lessons to learn."

"Yeah…" Twilight said nodding.

"Well, now you can join me on our adventure, right?" Luffy asked excited.

Twilight frowned. "Luffy, I would love to, but…" Twilight said before stopping and turning towards the party. She could see all her friends hanging with Luffy's crew enjoying their newfound friendship. She smiled seeing this, which made all the more harder to say, "I can't just leave my friends behind only after meeting them a short while ago. It wouldn't be fair. I'm sorry."

"Oh…" Luffy said sounding a little surprised by his sister's response. He looked a bit sad at first, but quickly enough he began grinning. He said, "Okay then! How about you all join the crew?"

"Hmm, interesting idea, Captain." Robin said intrigued.

"W-What?" Twilight said surprised.

"Yeah! You and all your friends could join too!" Luffy said becoming excited again. "I'm sure it's fine with everyone."

"I'm okay with it." Robin said adding her opinion.

Twilight sighed. She spoke sadly, "I don't know, Luffy. That's asking a lot of my friends to just uproot their lives for an adventure out into the world. They have families, duties, dreams of their own that require them here. I'm on a mission myself by Princess Celestia to learn and study the magic of friendship. I can't just leave either."

"I see…" Luffy said though he was smiling. "They're that important to you…"

Twilight looked at Luffy worriedly. She spoke quickly, "You're important to me too!"

"It's okay, Twilight. I'm not mad." Luffy said still smiling happily. "I'm glad you made friends. You were always such a stick-in-the-dirt when it came to making new friends."

"It's 'stick-in-the-mud'." Twilight said correcting her brother. "And hey!"

Luffy laughed before he took off towards their friends.

Twilight huffed madly. She wouldn't let Luffy's insult slide so easily. She immediately went after the Earth pony. She shouted, "Get back here, Gummy!"

"Huh? Gummy?" Pinkie Pie said as she heard a familiar name.

The Mane Six plus Spike and the Straw Hats watched as Luffy ran passed them laughing. They then watched at Twilight ran after him. They weren't sure what was happening, but they all laughed seeing how playful the two were being. Luffy and Twilight ran around the group and into the party. Eventually, Twilight starting teleporting to head off Luffy. To his credit, Luffy did well to continue to dodge Twilight's attempts to surprise and tackle him. All the while, the two siblings laughed.

"Come on, everypony!" Luffy shouted cheerfully as he ran to his group. He placed his front legs around Zoro and Nami laughing. He shouted, "Join in!"

"Alright!" shouted Usopp throwing his hoof into the air excitedly.

"Yeah!" cheered the rest of the crew.

Straw Hats: We may not be related, but the bonds we've created

Are strong enough to call family! (Zoro/Usopp/Sanji: When we're sailing the sea)

When other tides have faded we will still be here~

More than friends we are family!

"Hey! Does that include us?" Twilight asked as her and Mane Six plus Spike stepped forward to join in the singing.

"Yeah!" shouted the Straw Hats eagerly.

Luffy: You can go and explore every wave and island in the ocean

But even then you won't find a crew that holds a candle to ours

Nami: The crew on our ship is all misfits

But we're the best misfits around!

"Cool!" cheered Pinkie Pie excitedly.

Sanji: Abandon logic, we don't use it.

Let go and you're ocean bound!

Twilight spoke to Luffy worriedly, "Wait? What does he mean by that?"




Usopp: Every day, danger is near

But somehow we all survive!

"What!" Twilight shouted in shock.

Straw Hats: We risk our lives on a daily basis, with treasure on our minds~

The ultimate find!

"Take it easy, Twilight." Rainbow Dash said before chuckling. "It's only a song."

"Ha! You wish!" shouted Zoro grinning.

"Luffy!" Twilight shouted in frustration.


Nami sighed while smiling wearily, "Now you know how I feel."

Luffy: We're the best in all the sea, we'll never back down because together we'll succeed!

"Yeah!" shouted the Straw Hat crew.

"Come on, guys!" Luffy shouted towards the Mane Six plus Spike. "Join in!"

"Okay!" shouted most of the Mane Six and Spike.

"We're not done yet, Luffy!" Twilight shouted madly.

Straw Hats and Mane Six plus Spike: We may not be related, but the bonds we've created are strong enough to call family! (Straw Hats: As long as we're at sea)

When other tides have faded we will still be here~

More than friends we are family!

Everyone, background ponies included, laughed as the song ended. Even Twilight, despite her previous outbursts, was laughing. Everyone was having a good time. As the whole town continued to party fireworks were launched in the sky sending the whole town cheering. It was probably one of the best parties ever!

Dear Princess Celestia,

I have such exciting news! Luffy literally dropped in on me today! It's a little difficult to explain, but I am so happy to see him. I got to meet Luffy's friends too! They are all a little unusual, but they are very nice. I wasn't sure if I would have another lesson in friendship in this letter, but then I realized that there is , I learned that family and friends are much like boomerangs. No matter how far they go, they'll always come back to you! I don't know how long Luffy and his friends will stay in Ponyville, but I intend to enjoy every minute.

Your faithful student, Twilight Sparkle

P.S. HI, TIA! It's me, Luffy!

P.S.S Sorry, Princess. Luffy really wanted to write something to you.
