Chapter 55: The Doctor Is In


It had been three days since Hearth Warming, and everything was going wonderfully. Zeph and Spits were happy, as were Dashie and I. I was sitting at home with Dashie. Scoots was "Crusading." Oh boy...

I yawned, and had nothing to do. I decided to go out, and see if anypony wanted to hang out. As soon as I walked outside, Zeph was standing on my porch, grinning widely.

"Kyle, I hope you don't have any plans for today..."


"Come with me."


"I'm coming too!" Dashie jumped up and raced out the door with us.

We flew off, and I had no idea what was coming...


We landed in an open field, The Doctor standing there, obviously waiting for us.

"Ah, hello there Kyle, Zephyr!"

"Hello, Doctor... What's going on here?" I was acting casual. I was actually really confused.

"Ah, I'm still waiting for Derpy and Rose."

"Rose?" Me and Zephyr asked in unison.

"A girl I met a while back in London. She was being attacked by mannequins."

"Ah." I was still kinda confused.

And then, Derpy and an earth pony with cream skin, a pale red and pink mane, pale green eyes, and a rose for a Cutie Mark showed up.

"Ah! There you two are! Rose, meet Kyle and Zephyr." The Doctor had a big grin on his face.

"How is he still a human?" She had a British accent, much like The Doctor. I assumed she was from London.

"He fell through a tear in space and time, and it allows him to maintain his human form."

"Oh. Well, my name's Rose, but I bet The Doctor already told you that."

"Yeah, he did. So, as he said, I'm Kyle..."

"And I'm Zephyr."

"Fantastic! Now that introductions are over, lets get into the TARDIS. Shall we?" The Doctor made a joking formal gesture towards the door, and we all stepped inside.

"OK Kyle, we know a way to get you home..."

"Wait, WHAT!?!? I don't wanna go back!"

"Kyle... You're being here is tearing space and time apart. You could stay, but that would bring about the destruction of Equestria. Now, you don't want that, do you?"

I swallowed audibly. "No... Alright then. Lets go."

"Fantastic! So... Rose, press that button. Derpy, pull that lever. Kyle, turn that knob. Zephyr, yank that bolt."

We all did as we were told. Then, The Doctor did something unexpected.

"ALLONS-Y!" He yanked another lever and the TARDIS began to teleport.

"YOU STOLE MY LINE!" I yelled at him.


When the TARDIS had stopped moving, we all stepped outside. We were on Earth... But everyone except me was still a pony.

"Doctor, what happened?"

"I dunno. We're still ponies... And we're in..."

"My hometown..." I looked around. Everything looked the same... But there were fliers everywhere. I tore one down and read it.

"Missing person: Kyle Bucy."



"Well... It looks like one year..." The Doctor told me as we walked back out of the TARDIS.

"Oh boy..."

"So... What now Doctor?" Derpy flew up in the air to look around.

We started getting funny looks from people nearby. Seeing as to how I was a boy who had been missing for a year and had talking ponies with him, that was to be expected.

"Um... Let's just get to my house..."

"Good idea. ALLONS-Y!"

"Stop stealing my CATCHPHRASE!"


By the time we had arrived at my house, The Doctor had decided to stay behind and bring the TARDIS along with him. When I walked in the door, the first thing I felt was my Mom's embrace.

"Kyle... I thought I would never see you again..."

"Yeah, I know... Mom, could you let go?"

She got off of me, and looked at the ponies behind me. "What on EARTH are those things?"

"OK, so they're ponies from... Well I mean they... And I mean I... I don't even know where to go with this, oh my Goddesses..."

"Goddesses?" Mom just stared at me.

"Alright, you might want to sit down. I had best explain everything to you...


All I felt was wind..."


I told my mother everything that had happened up to that point. Zephyr, Derpy, Rose, and The Doctor were in the TARDIS, which had arrived a few moments ago, and Dashie was sitting next to me.

"So wait... You and her..." My Mom pointed back and forth between me and Dashie.

"Yeah." I nodded, blushing.

"And now you're raising..."

"Yeah." Dashie chimed in.

"Well... Son, get out."

"WHAT?" We all shouted.

"I don't want a freak for a son, and I don't want a pony granddaughter. Get out of my house, sicko."

"Mom, you can't do that."

"Who says I can't?"

"I do." The Doctor stepped out of the TARDIS.

"Why can't he leave? He isn't right! He should be the way I want him to be!"

"Ma'am, as much as I want to sonic some sense into you, I won't. Now, the reason he can't leave is because the TARDIS needs some new parts. The inter-dimensional travel really did a toll on it. I need some new silicon based parts..."

"Silicon? Well, I know a guy who owns a bunch of old computers."

"Very good Kyle! The silicon in the chips should work!"

I looked at my Mom, who was smiling. She was glad to be rid of her imperfect son. So I did what I had been waiting sixteen years to do.


Me and my entourage walked out of the door, my mother still sitting there with a red mark on her face in the shape of my hand.
