Gale was always fascinated by the stories that were told of people disappearing at conventions and of them supposedly going to new worlds. However, he never thought he would join the massive number of people that had disappeared.

Chapter Two: No Studying!

{Gale's POV/Alicorn Form}

Hey, remember how I said I needed to study up on Equestria's history so that I would know what I missed? Well, it turns out that I already knew about what ever important events occurred due to the lore that was available back on earth! What, I'm a brony, get used to it. Actually, you can't judge because if you're reading this that means you're a brony too! Anyways, since I didn't have to study, I had a lot of free time. But, what do I do with this free time? I suppose I could scope out a new place to live. After all, sitting in the same secret basement, with no visitors, while waiting for your maintenance capsule to repair you, gets you really tired of living in the same place. So I decided that I would move elsewhere, and not squat in the royal palace for once. Of course, technically, this isn't the same castle, considering that I used to be in the castle of the two sisters. Guess they somehow moved me without me noticing. But that's besides the point. Now, time to figure out where to live.

"Hey Meta," Twilight said as she walked into my room. It had been a few days since the incident with Discord, and I had become really good friends with the mane-6.

"Oh hey Twilight," I replied. She walked up next to me.

"So, what are you doing?" she asked.

"Trying to figure out where to move to," I answered.

"How come you're moving?" she asked.

"Well, quite frankly I'm a little bit sick of the castle," I said. "I have just been sitting here for a thousand years after all. I need some place new, and exciting."

"Well, I've got room in my library," Twilight said. "You could move there till you find someplace more permanent."

"What, you saying that I wouldn't be able to become your permanent room-mate?" I said jokingly.

"W-What?" she sputtered. "N-No I didn't mean it like tha-"

"Calm down Twi," I chuckled. "I'm just pulling your chain. I'd be happy to stay at your place till I can find a permanent home." She breathed a sigh of relief.

"Okay good," she said. "For a second there I thought you were serious there." We both laughed at that.

"Alright then," I said, "when are you leaving Canterlot?"

"In a few minuets," she replied.

"Okay then let me just get my capsule," I said. I walked up to my capsule and pressed a button. The capsule started to compress until it was a little box. I picked it up, and used my ever evolving powers so that it would sink into my body, and went into my subspace dimension storage. I looked to Twilight.

"All set," I said.

"Honestly I have to say when it sunk into your body it looked a little odd," she said quizzically. I shrugged. We walked up to the throne room and saw her friends.

"Hey Meta," said AJ.

"Hello AJ," I said back. "And hello to the rest of you as well." They all said their hellos and then we were off. We got on the train and were headed back to Ponyvile.

"So Meta," Rarity began, "you're going to be staying with Twilight correct?" I nodded.

"For the time being anyway," I said. I looked out the window and saw we were almost to Ponyvile. After a couple of minuets we finally arrived and Twilight led me to her house. When we walked in I saw Spike sitting by a table with a stack of comics. He looked up at us when we walked in.

"Hey Twilight," he said. Then he noticed me. "Um, who's that?"

"Spike, I want you to meet Meta," Twilight said. "Meta, this is Spike."

"Hello Spike," I said.

"Hey there," Spike said while shaking my hoof. "It's nice to meet you."

"Likewise," I replied.

"Spike, Meta is going to be staying here until he finds a more permanent home," Twilight said. Spike nodded and I moved to the basement. I took out my little box and set it on the ground. I tapped it and it turned back into my maintenance capsule. With that done I went back upstairs to check out the rest of the house/library. It was actually a pretty good size. There was a kitchen, a bedroom upstairs, and books everywhere. This certainly the place to be if I wanted to learn something. I looked around, and saw a book that contained maps. I picked it up in my magic, which is red by the way, and opened it up. I looked through it until I saw a map that showed the way to the dragon country. I put it back, an called out to Twilight.

"Hey Twi?" I called.

"Yes?" she asked as she walked into view from upstairs.

"I'm going on a journey and I may be gone for a while," I told her. "I need to see if an old friend of mine is still alive."

"Oh, okay," she said. "But are you sure he'll still be around?"

"Oh I'm sure," I replied as I started to walk out the door. "After all, dragons live for a very long time."
