Lab Horse: Redux - TheMajorTechie

A filly lives on Earth with a jobless physicist. She's just figuring out life, while he's going broke. She has no idea what she's doing.

  • ...

Log 8: It's tomorrow now and I talked to Twilight Sparkle!

"C'mon, Ranell!" I squeaked, tugging him closer to the radio. "Let's try and send a message back! You said tomorrow yesterday and now today is tomorrow so let's do it!"

"Okay, okay!" Ranell laughed, "So... how would we start?"

I shrugged. "Maybe I could zap the radio and start talking into it or something!"

"Are you sure that's gonna work? I don't think it's gonna be that easy to turn a radio into a broadcasting station. Especially an interdimensional one."

"Well screw science anyway, we're working with magic!"

Ranell stared at me like I was crazy. Come to think of it, maybe I am. Who knows? Either way, let's get this done! First we'll turn on the thing, and--

"Broadcasting message for the eighty-fifth thousand, five hundred thirty-third time..."

"Well, we know it's still working, at least," Ranell shrugged.

And now let's give it a magical kick!

Don't really know how I could possibly record a video of the radio going kablooie with the rainbow laser or anything again so I'm just gonna describe it here instead.

BOOM! And then there was a big rainbow laser shooting into the sky again!

"Gadget!" Mister Delmar yelled from wherever he was, "I thought I said to try not to make any more rainbow lasers!"


We all turned to face the small crater that the radio was now in.

"Hello?" Twilight's voice crackled again, "Is anypony there? The spell alerted me to some kind of message that made it through to me."

"TWILIGHT SPARKLE! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE--" I yelled (probably a little too loudly). "Twilght you wouldn't believe this but I'm actually a filly that's stuck here in a world inhabited by humans but for some reason I'm here and you're there when I probably should be there too and--"

"Woah, woah, slow down, please. I don't need to have Pinkie around to know when somepony's gushing words without end. Could you repeat what you said but slower?"

"My name is Gadget," I began slowly, "I live on a place called Earth. E-A-R-T--"

"I-it's alright if you talk a little faster there, um... Gadget."

"Okay. I'm a unicorn filly that for some reason is living in a world where your world-- Equestria, exists only in a TV show."

"My Little Pony?"

"Yeah, how did you kno-"

"Wild guess. Though, I'm definitely curious: how the buck did you-- ow! Pinkie--"

"CHILD FRIENDLY!" I heard Pinkie yell before giving Twilight another smack.

"Okay, fine. Anyway, how did you even manage to contact me at all? I've been to a human world before, and stuff like this simply don't exist at all!"

"I enchanted a homemade radio and then kicked it with magic."


"Yeah. Not like actually kicked kicked it or anything, but you know what I mean."

I looked at Ranell, who flashed a thumbs-up. Mister Delmar looked like he wanted to facepalm but at the same time didn't want to facepalm for some reason. He's funny that way sometimes.

"So Twilight?"


"Do you think there's ever going to be a way where I could maybe enter Equestria? I don't know anything about myself from before a man named Mister Delmar took me home and raised me. I want to see if I can maybe meet my mom and dad!"

"I could maybe arrange an inquiry for them. Is Gadget the name you had originally?"

"No, Delmar gave me the name because I liked to hang around his tools and sometimes drag them under the couch to mess around with things in secret."

"You fit under a couch."

"Used to. I... don't exactly fit anymore without making a complete mess. Just ask Delmar."

"And this 'Delmar' man, is he friendly?"

"Yeah. You wanna talk to him?"

I'm pretty sure Twilight nodded on the other side of the line 'cause I didn't hear any reply, so I'll just let Delmar talk anyway.

"Uh... hello there, Twilight Sparkle. I am Professor Delma--"

"You're a professor? No wonder Gadget likes to tinker so much! It's great to see that she at least grew up in an educationa--"

"...I'm jobless and just barely above the poverty line."


I think I can say that things just got awkward quick between Delmar and Twilight. Anyway, I think we'll probably just be spending a lot of time talking to her and stuff, so I'm just gonna stop here for today.
