Chapter One: Meteor Shower

Chapter 1: Meteor Shower


It was the night of the meteor shower and all of Twilight's friends were up on the tallest hill in Ponyville stargazing. Rainbow Dash had moved the clouds out of the way and was now retelling the story about the time she saved Fluttershy during the Battle for Canterlot. Fluttershy, Applejack, Pinkie Pie and Rarity listened intently while Twilight adjusted her telescope. Spike had once again fallen asleep.

“…And then when the Changelings had Fluttershy cornered I broke my cover and BANG! Gave them a hoof right to the jaw. Didn’t even see it coming. They went down like rocks!” yelled the pegasus with a technicolour mane.

“I know, I remember, I was so frightened. I thought for sure they were going to get me,” said Fluttershy.

“That’s right,” Rainbow replied, “after I saved Flutters I picked her up off and ground and-“

“Girls come look, the meteor shower is about to start.” came the voice of Twilight Sparkle, interrupting Dash’s story. The ponies all looked up into the sky to see that sure enough, the meteor shower had begun. Beautiful streaks of many different colors began to light up the night sky.

“Such fabulous colors,” remarked Rarity, “If only I could reach up, pull them down and put them on one of my dresses. I’m sure they would be a hit.”

“Oh wow! I don’t remember the shooting stars having this many colors last time.” Pinkie remarked. “They’re like a bunch of sonic rainbooms!”

“That may be going just a little too far Pinkie, but they are still pretty cool nonetheless,” said Dash in reply.

“It is strange though, meteorites are normally only a few different colors, which are based upon what minerals are being burnt up in the atmosphere,” remarked the lavender unicorn. “I wonder what the reason is for all these different colors.”

Suddenly Pinkie Pie’s tail began to twitch. At first only a little bit, then more and more violently until it was hard for her to ignore it anymore.

“LOOK OUT! SOMETHING REALLY REALY BIG IS GONNA FALL!” she screamed, covering her head. The rest of the group covered their heads as well, other than Spike, who was asleep.

“Are you sure about that Pinkie Pie?” asked Twilight, panicking slightly.

“I know it for sure Twilight. My tail is-a twichin'. Hhhhhuuuuu! What if it's one of the shooting stars! What if it crashes into Ponyville? What if it has aliens on it and an alien pony comes out and is like 'take me to Celesta!’? What if-"

“Pinkie Pie, that’s enough,” interrupted Twilight, trying to calm everypony down. “The meteors can’t make it through the atmosphere. They’ll burn up just like always. Nothing to worry about, now if we can all just calm down and figure out what what’s going to fall then we can-"

“Um, girls, if you don’t mind me saying something…” stammered Fluttershy, looking up at the sky. “That meteor looks awfully big and is moving awfully fast.” The six ponies looked toward the giant meteor as it streaked across the sky towards the Everfree forest. “Dear Celestia,” whispered Applejack as she watched the meteor crash into the Everfree Forest.

A few minutes earlier

“EMERGENCY! EMERGENCY! THIS IS DALEK VESSLE 11410. WE ARE CAUGHT IN PLANETARY GRAVITATIONAL PULL, EMERGENCY! EMERGENCY! EMERGENCY!”

The Dalek ship had emerged from the time vortex. It was badly damaged from having come straight from the Time War. It had barely escaped after the time lord attack and was beginning to break apart in the atmosphere of the unknown planet and now was hurling toward it at alarming speed.

“RESPOND, RESPOND, ASSIST, ASSIST!” cried the Dalek Commander, Zek, in a panicked robot voice.

“IT IS NO FUTILE. WE ARE NOT WITHIN BROADCAST RANGE, WE MUST ESCAPE USING AN EMERGENCY TEMPORAL SHIFT!” said Vice Commander Lez.

“WE MUST NOT ABANDON THE SHIP!” Zek barked in his harsh metal voice.

“WE MUST ABANDON!” Lez argued back.

“WE MUST NOT!” said Zek.

"THE SURVIVAL OF THE DALEK RACE DEPENDS UPON OUR SURVIVAL." countered Lez.

“YOU LEAVE,” said Commander Zek. “DALEK PROTOCAL INDICATES THAT THE CAPTAIN MUST GO DOWN WITH THE SHIP.”

“I OBEY," said Vice Commander Lez. “EMERGENCY TEMPORAL SHIFT!” The Dalek disappeared in a bright light. The rest of the Daleks on board followed suit.

“EMERGENCY TEMPORAL SHIFT!” They too vanished in a bright light.

This left Dalek Zek alone on deck of his ship. A commander of burning wreckage of a Dalek ship doomed with no crew. His black sleek armor, reflecting the image of the fire burning around him.

Alone.

Daleks are not supposed to have any emotions. They are above such a weakness. They do not feel compassion, they do not feel love, and they do not feel loneliness or fear. They only feel hate. Then why, inside his metal casing was the creature known as Zek shaking? This action was not logical. He must prepare for impact. “Raise the shields to maximum. Engage emergency harness.” The ship raised its shields based on his voice command, and restrained Dalek Zek in his harnessed. He put his own personal shields on armor lock and prepared for impact…

Present Time.

“Dear Celestia.” The object crashed down in the Everfree Forest with tremendous force shaking the very ground beneath the ponies' hooves.

"Oh my goodness!" exclaimed Rarity. “I hope nopony's been hurt!”

“Don’t worry, nopony lives in the Everfree Forest. Well, except for some animals and Zecora, but she does't live near that part of the Everfree Forest,” said Applejack.

“Oh dear, the animals!” Fluttershy said, rushing toward the forest.

“Whatever crashed there is probably gonna be cool! I want to see!” said Dash flying past Fluttershy, sending her spinning. “Wait for me. I want to see the aliens,” said Pinkie bouncing at a leisurely pace after Rainbow Dash.

“Guys wait! Don’t touch anything!” warned Twilight “Whatever it is, that crash will be of scientific interest!” Her warning was in vain, however, since all three of them soon left sight. “There they go again,” sighed Twilight. "Rushing off with no plan at all, I mean, really. Applejack, Rarity you two coming?"

“Sure I’m up for an adventure,” said Applejack. “How bout you Rarity?”

"Well I’d love to darling, but somepony has to stay behind with little Spiky-Wikey." She made eyes at the adorable sleeping dragon.

“Well alrighty then, lets go Twi,” said Applejack, trotting towards the woods, followed by Twilight.
