I am a Brony. That's all you need to know.


A crossover between Transformers and MLP:FiM.

Equestria is in danger once again. Chrysalis, the exiled Changeling queen, has made a deal with a powerful being beyond all imagination: Unicron, The Chaos-Bringer; a terrifying being capable of consuming entire planets.

This unprecedented threat to Equestria's safety causes the Mane 6 to seek out the help of new allies: Optimus Prime and the Autobots. But will their combined might and heroism be enough to stop Chrysalis's rampage of vengeance, or will Equestria and Earth both fall to the horrors of Unicron?

Awesome starting chapter my friend and I can't wait for the next upload for this story I'll be waiting my friend and keep me posted on the story thanks

A minor complaint, mainly focusing on a mainly on a critical innacuracy. I could take Luna saying the elements have been destroyed as her lying, but not Chrysalis. The elements of harmony have not been destroyed. They have been sitting firmly on the tree of harmony. Nothing has happened to them or the tree since the locked box opened.

8050125 Yeah, that's a slight complaint with me, too.

Other than that, I like what I've read so far.
So you get a Fave, an Upvote and a Follow.

On another, if anyone ever needed proof that our dear Queen Chryssi is an unmitigated idiot, just read the end of this chapter.:facehoof::ajbemused:
I hope she gets her buggy butt stomped just for that.

Hey Unicron, that plan worked out so well for you last time.
Hey can anyone else hear Peter Cullen the voice actor who voiced Optimus Prime in the beginning and Orson Welles as Unicron? Or is that just me.
Add me as a follower.

I want to know if Chrysalis will be getting an upgrade; I doubt that chitin and magic will fare well against Cybertronians.

Any idea when the next chapter is coming out?

I’m very much working on it. Unfortunately, I don’t really have a schedule, so I can’t give a definitive answer. This really goes for all my fics.


... Um, Goldbug is a reformated Bumblebee... but yeah the massive cast change as result of the first movie is one of many issues with Season 3 of Transformers: The Animated Series.

Although, a nice change to the Instecticons, makes a lot more sense than the Transformers: Prime alteration.

Likely, Chrysalis didn't know what happened to the Elements, so she probably assumed they were destroyed.

Like I had. Guess that's what I get for using pop-cultural osmosis to catch up on pony. :ajbemused:

Crap, I forgot about Goldbug. :facehoof:

And thanks! Though to be honest, would anything other than the Insecticons be appropriate for the Changeling queen? :ajsmug:

You monster!:flutterrage::fluttercry: THEY BETTER COME BACK! THAT WAS TOO SUDDEN, TOO SOON!

I was not expecting that Chryalis would be so... (remembers gore tag)... well buck.

So I wonder what will happen now...

"One shall stand, one shall fall."

To answer your question, let's quote Big Mac, "Nope." It's okay that you forgot Goldbug, that form of Bumblebee doesn't appear until the end of season 3 and the short lived season 4 and can be easily overlooked.

Well Discord can change the very fabric of reality... resurrection is not outside the realm of possibility and unlike a genie he doesn't have any limiting rules...

Well, I seem to remember hearing that both Goldbug and Bumblebee are in the same celebration scene at the end of one of the later episodes due to an animation oversight.

Also, I don't think Discord will have anything to do with it, if he even CAN do something about it. Raising the dead falls under Dark magic, and Discord uses almost exclusively CHAOS magic. Which is stated to be different.

Ohhhhhhh, the team-up I always wanted is finally happening! No strings, no ulterior motives, just a good, old-fashioned Bot and Con team-up to fight the greatest evil in the Universe. BRING ON THE PAIN FOR CHRYSALIS!

A reluctant Depicicon-Autobot alliance... well it happened in the season 3 finale of the original Transformers run. As for Starscream... it wouldn't surprise me if he got a bo... wait a minute he did manage to get a new body it was in the episode that he worked with Unicron attempting to make Cybertron the new body for the planet-eater...

Actually resurrection is a light/healing based magic... again he can change reality but all that can be done now is wait and see

Is Optimus prime is the heart of steel form?

Technically no. In terms of Transformers, this fic is set in the G1 cartoon continuity (post-S3, disregarding Headmasters and "The Rebirth"). Optimus simply scanned a new vehicle mode in Equestria.

So would his robot form be the same or no?

Mostly, except for a few cosmetic differences indicating he turns into a train.

Sort of. Just imagine his G1 robot mode but with train wheels on the legs and a folded-up cowcatcher (the metal grate-like part in the bottom front) where the grill should be.

Oh okay one last question you going to draw this?

Oh okay thanks for answering my questions and can't wait for the next part of the story. I hope Starlight and Thorax comes back alive.

Fillies and Gentlecolts, Prime has entered the building, and it is SO AWESOME! :rainbowkiss:

Well, Discord can alter reality, while not a true resurrection, I wouldn't put it past him. Looking at roles DeLancie has played as well, Q, the closest character the actor played that Discord can be compared too, brought Picard back from the dead and near death before.
Also, this is a world of talking, anthropopychic (human like in mind), slightly anthropomorphic, pascal-colored, sentient, sapient and magical diminutive equines and a world that is the closest thing to a literal world of rainbows and sunshine. So it's in the realm of possibility.
Also, Optimus Prime was brought back to life, twice in the first three seasons of Gen 1 Transformers (Dark Resurrection and The Return of Optimus Prime)

Alright, I'm going to explain why Starlight and Thorax died.

You see, sometimes characters die in order to establish the gravity of the situation and a sense of urgency. This is the thematic justification for Optimus's death in the 1986 movie, toy sales aside. This is also why Starlight and Thorax bit the dust, so we know what the villain is capable of, and what the heroes are truly up against.

In regards to bringing them back, it might be a while. I mean, yes, I'm sure resurrection is possible in Equestria, Discord or not, but bringing them back right away would undermine the very sense of a real threat their deaths provided. Going back to the '86 movie, it'd be like if Optimus was resurrected while Ultra Magnus fought Galvatron for the first time. Sure, he'd be alive again, but what'd be the point of him dying in the first place?

I know and appreciate why they died. IF they are brought back, and only IF, I would expect it to like at the very end, a restoration of order type. I am not trying to say they will, only that, in a meta sense, they could, and here are examples of it happing and a means by which. Now IF they are to be brought back, it will only be IF it makes narrative sense. IF it doesn't make sense to bring them back, let it be. I am sorry several of my previous posts seem to suggest that they will and it will be soon. My intent was not to undermine the narrative but only to provide an answer a question and my reasonings behind my answer.

I'm glad you understand why, even if your intent with your posts wasn't clear at first. I was just spelling it out for those who didn't.

And yes, that'd be the best way to bring them back, if at all.

I very much wish I could have used a certain Stan Bush song, but I think that would be against site policy. :pinkiesad2:

which one, 'The Touch' or 'Dare'?

"The Touch," of course! Why would I use "Dare" for Optimus? That's silly! :pinkiehappy:

Fair enough, 'Dare' is Hot Rod's song. I don't think the site will have a problem, this is an Optimus 'curb stomp' scene.

So yeah, as always, leave your thoughts in the comments as always. Next chapter... well, let's hope net neutrality doesn't go away, otherwise there might not be a next chapter. :raritydespair:

:ajbemused: Another worry wart that doesn't understand that there is a legal precedent set that addresses the main reason cited in support of Net Neutrality. Netflix V. Comcast 2014, sure they cite the case itself but fail to cite the ruling, which was that Comcast and by extension ISPs, in general, cannot throttle internet access to sites.
If you're so concern about censorship, the issue now is with the Websites, such as Twitter, Facebook, and Google, all of which is EU style censorship laws that have crept in thanks to Obama giving up the US's control of the Internet to the US in 2011.
So many people are so uninformed.:facehoof:

Believe me, I'd love for you to be right about this. I'd love to be proven wrong about net neutrality's repeal having potential negative ramifications. But just in case, I think I'm going to back up this story on Google Docs. Better safe than sorry, after all. :pinkiesmile:

UPDATE: Net neutrality's gone, but turns out the vote was rigged.

So I guess we have nothing to worry about then. :scootangel:

New chapter coming soon my dudes, don't worry. :twilightsmile:

What a fantastic start to this story. Unicron sure is trouble. ;)

Poor Thorax and Starlight Glimmer. They didn't deserve what they got from the now-metallic Chrysalis. :(

The Decepticons' point of view was pretty fun to read in this next chapter.

The best part about this chapter is Optimus Prime coming to the Mane 6's aid. :raritystarry:

The meeting between Optimus Prime and the ponies went pretty well here.

I enjoyed reading the fight with the Insecticons, right down to the last part. That part totally struck me.
