I know I'm weird but normal people are boring anyway.

This story is a sequel to First Steps (REWRITE)


Rewrite
March 2021

The first two parts of "Chapter 0" have only minor changes, to make them flow better and introduce new Lore. However, part 3 is where things start to drastically differ from the original. Although I do use a lot of material from that.

Long Summary:
The world of Equus flourished after the Changeling Global War. Together the various races advanced quickly in Magic & Technology. Now entering the Space Age, Doctor Whooves sees a looming threat but can't interfer himself, so he gathers a new generation of heroes...

Doctor Whooves turns his TARDIS into a school to teach children with odd manifestations of magical power how to control their gifts. First he needs to get the school in order & recruit himself some students.

Only then can he be a responsible adult and take secondary school children adventures through time and space.

Among the student body is a young hybrid Thestral / Kitsune, the children of the Mane 6, Foals from the show, Brony reviewers, & Sentient Monster OCs.

They are gathered together, as a result of their strange powers, and taught control while receiving the best education in the Galaxy from none other then The 6 Pillars, Stygian, the Background 6, The all grown up Student 6, and a reformed Sombra, with Doctor Whooves as their headmaster.

Other Stories in this Extended Universe:

Most of these stories have nothing to do with MLP. You don't have to read them, in order to understand what os going on in any of the "My Little Galaxy" stories. But it does show the deeper world of "Omniva Verse"


Classes:

Powers work like D&D 5th Edition "Classes" with a primary class (Such as Mage, Warrior, Rogue, and Cleric) and an "Archetype". In this universe, "Archetypes" are specific groupings of additional powers to the "Classes". Any Archetype can manifest alongside any "Class".

You can only have the powers of an "Archetype" if you are born with it. However anyone can be taught up to 2 "Classes", unless you were born with one.

The Doctor I'm using is from my "Paradox Unleashed" series. He was born with a "Mage, Class" and a "Time Agent, Archetype". So basically he had magic spell casting and limited powers over time. Around the end of the 12th Doctor's run, he gained infinite Regenerations by ascending into a "Celestial". Sometimes referred to as an "Angel", they are basically immortal lower gods. They slowly gain more and more power the longer they live, until they rank at "Diety" power levels (Which the Doctor has yet to reach).


School System:
The Schools of the Equus System, starts at 3 galactic standard years old, and ends at 10 or 11. In "Primary School" children, of all races, learn the basics of academics together.

Then "Secondary School" begins at 11, and ends at 15 or 16. This is where species are separated, in order to learn control of their unique racial magics. As well as the details of their own species culture and history. Which they learned the basics of in Primary School. Some magic schools still teach all species, but in things like wand or staff use, as well as their racial magics. These schools have a larger course load, and tend to have college level students as well. For both college kids that just started learning with a magical focus, and those hoping to advance such education.

College is from 16 to 25, and has all races rejoin together, in order to study their desired trades. Then, at 25, former students enter the working world, as apprentices.


Galactic Calendar

The Equus calendar measures the movements of each Galaxy as they orbit the center of the universe. Remarkably at the same speed... well it would be remarkable if the Galaxies weren't artificially created but that was besides the point!

At the center of each Galaxy is a massive ring, with 5 limbs, and an artificial environment, which generates it's own cycle of artificial light.

Luna, through the invention of the most powerful telescope ever created, discovered this. After her banishment, Celestia implemented her discoveries as the official pony calendar. Even going so far as to move the Sun and the moon around Equus according to these measurements. It was later discovered this was the same calendar all space fairing civilizations use.

A day on the Rings last 30 hours, with 20 hours of artificial daylight and 10 hours of night.

It takes the Galaxys exactly 1090 days for the rings to orbit the center of the Galaxy. Everything in the universe is synchronized to that timetable. It's how long it took everything and everyone, with magic, to age a single year.

There are 12 months in a year, with each months lasting either 80 or 90 days on the dot. Each month measures a single season on the Rings.

For Example: October was the last Summer of the year, November was the last Fall, and December was the final Winter.

However this means there are 3.6 Earth years compressed in this single year. As a result the Celestia has to have 3 sets of seasons on Equus, to keep up with the demands of nature.

The fact the Lunar cycles on the rings are far faster, then any planet should have, doesn't exactly help this.

There are 8 to 9 Lunar cycles a month on the rings, making for a total of 100 Lunar Cycles in a year. These cycles are frequently called "Moons" or "Weeks" and used as time measurements themselves.

That effectively means there are 10 days in a week. These days of the week are known as:

New Moon, Waxing crescent, First quarter, Waxing gibbous, Full moon, Blood moon, Harvest moon, Waning gibbous, Last quarter, and Waning crescent


Chapter Zero:

Chapter 0, was split into 3 parts, and focuses on the Doctor, with the origins of his pony regeneration, and this universes version of him.

A single bonus adventure of the Pony Doctor will usually be added at the end of each multi part chapters.

Side Stories:

In addition to the "Doctor Whooves Past" side-stories, there will also he "Field Trip" side-stories, as well as occasionally "Family Day" side stories.

This will be at the end of each Multi-Part Chapter arc.


Rewrite:

I decided to alter My OC's backstory. Through slight tweeks to his very species... which resulted in massive tweeks to his origins. This created a domino effect, of slight tweeks to the entire story.

The Smart family are now thestrals. With Mouthy and his Siblings are half bat-pony / half fox Yokai.

As I really like the idea of Mouthy having the Fancanon abilities of bat ponies. Manipulating shadows, and even moving through them... and could care less about the power to control the weather, as Pegasus do.

I also... prefer the look of the bat wings, and the slit pupils.

Howdy. As one of the writers for this story going forward I intend to help alleviate some of the confusion by introducing characters, giving them backstories, and moving them towards a centralized plot line. Keep in mind that this story falls under the genre of "epic space opera" so some jumping around is not only necessary but common for the genre. Additionally, as a space opera that goes through time, some movement to specific events will also be necessary to establish how the final product will come together. I intend to make this story shine through a conscious effort to connect disparate elements in time and space into a cute and funny story about the universe the story takes place in. My specialty is warm and personable character development which will be placed into the finished product. I hope you enjoy this story as much as I'll enjoy writing it!

why am I getting a hogwarts vibe from the cover art?

Because the Doctor modelled his school after Hogwarts, including the houses. Think of this as Hogwarts, in space, with ponies! Although I have no plans to use any Harry Potter character at this time.
