Log 9: Portal magic and all that jazz


Guess who said she's gonna try and open a portal to our world today? Guess! Guess! It's Twilight freakin' Sparkle!

She said after I stopped the log sometime late in the night that she'd be interested in seeing if it was possible to connect me back to my real mom and dad, and maybe even invite Delmar over for a meet and greet sorta thing for raising me all that time even if he was broke and jobless and all that jazz.


I'm bored. I'll just cut out this log for a bit until something interesting happens.


Wait, did I already start off the log with that? I think I-- oh, yeah, I did. Let's see then... Twilight said that she's gonna try opening up the portal in a few minutes, Ranell is... somewhere, and Delmar? Delmar I'm pretty sure is napping on the couch right now. So I guess that just leaves me!

I've been waiting for so long for the kind of things I'll probably find out by going to Equestria. Things like how the heck I even got to Earth, stuff like that, y'know? I mean, who knows, maybe the Equestria Twilight's opening up to me isn't even the same Equestria I came from!

Ooh, Twilight's doing something! This little spark of pinkish-purple light is starting to flicker a little right next to where I'm standing outside. I... guess maybe the reason why it can't just show up all at the same time is because it doesn't have a frame like the mirror portal thingy from Equestria Girls? Hold up, is Equestria Girls going to even apply to whatever backstory I've got for why I'm here? Am I actually human?

Holy heck what if I'm human? That'd be the most interesting thing to happen to me in a looooooong time.

"Gadget," I heard Twilight's voice crackle through the (once again rebuilt) radio, "Gadget, what do you see on your side of the portal?"


"...Oh. Alright, let's see if it's possible to force more mana into the spell then. Um, you might want to step back a little. Just in case."

Obviously, I stepped back. A really buzzy sound started coming out of the little light sparkle thing, and then it started to grow. In only a few seconds it was already about as big as my head, and then not long after that it was big enough that I think I might've been able to jump through it!



I should jump through it.




"C'mon, snap out of it!" Delmar dusted off my lab-vest thingy. "Don't go trying to jump into portals while they're still forming! You're lucky you only smacked into the side of it instead of going through!"

...Oh. Well... um... that happened then, I guess. That probably explains the flashy rainbow lights, too.

The portal grew even bigger, and also looked like it was starting to open. I think I can see Twilight waving a hoof at me! Hi, Twilight!

"The portal should be just about stable now!" Twilight shouted through, "I'm not completely sure if you can come through yet or not, but I am sure that you will get here in one piece if you do!"


I grabbed Delmar in my magic and rushed through because holy crap have I been waiting for this da--
