Recovery

Blood... Heart... Like aged wine...

ROAR!

Fluttershy awoke with a start, gasping for precious air as if she were in danger. Quickly a nurse rushed in and binded her but was thrown off as if she weighed nothing. "No! Stay away! I don't wanna die!" She pleaded.

"Calm down, Miss Fluttershy!" The nurse called for backup, and a much larger and more muscular stallion secured her while the other one calmed her down with a mild sedative.

The forest...

It was peaceful, and we enjoyed it. That is until the White Wolf came. He ruined our routine. We never harmed the Humans, only "borrowed" their resources, their hunting grounds. The Wolf never stopped hurting my brethren. Us. We were the enemy in his eyes, despite him being an emotionless killer like most of us.

Your forest is... Different. More vibrant and colorful. Not only did it possess Magic, but it was soaked to the brim. Every blade of grass, every leaf on the army of trees, every inch of that endless forest was alive.

We shouldn't even be able to communicate with you like this, but the magic of your world had other plans. Thus we come to the conclusion that you are important to discovering the mystery of this Conjunction happening, you and the White Wolf.

Find him...

Find the White Wolf of Rivia...

Many hours later, she awoke to hushed voices just down the hallway.

"Is it safe to go in?"

"Is all the...blood cleaned up? Ladies tend to get nauseous over this sort of thing you know!"

"Ugh, let us see Fluttershy already! I have a 'Survived Imminent Death' party I wanna throw!"

"Just let us see her already! What's the big deal?!"

"Now tell us the truth doc, is there something you're not tellin' us?"

The nurse sighed. "As a nurse, it is my sworn duty to make the patient's safety and well-being my top priority." She hesitated before continuing. "However, I'm more concerned for other's safety around her much more now.

"What do you mean by that?" What sounded like Twilight's voice spoke, hoofsteps echoing closer towards the door leading to her room.

"We had to get Bulk Biceps of all ponies just to hold her down! When I tried to calm her down earlier, she just threw me off like a Manticore would a stick in the woods." The Pegasus looked down at her hooves. Could she really be that strong?

"Wait a sec, do ya mean that poor innocent Fluttershy can buck harder than anyone of us now?!" The nurse nodded.

"That's not all, she also..." The voice outside the door began to mumbled, much to Fluttershy's disappointment. "Just be careful is all I'm saying! Now let me see if she's awake." Not a second later, a knock was heard on the door.

Straightening up in her hospital bed as best as she could, Fluttershy let out a small "Come in!"

Slowly, Nurse Redheart opened the door to let in all her friends. "How are you feeling, Miss Fluttershy?" She asked, going over the charts at the foot of her bed.

"Oh, I feel fine. More than fine, in fact!" She beamed. "Like a million bits!"

"Is that so?" The nurse nervously chuckled, the Pegasus immediately noticing.

"What's wrong?" She stared at all the concerned looks her friends were giving her.

"W-well, I'm not sure how to exactly tell you this..."

"The thing is darling..."

Rainbow just awkwardly chuckled, scratching the back of her neck.

"Oh, I SO don't have a party for this!"

"Oh for Celestia's sake, y'all are a bunch of sissies!" Not brave enough to tell her herself, Applejack simply handed a mirror to her. Nothing seemed to really grasp her attention, save for one detail.

"My eyes..." They were gold instead of the usual teal, and sported another odd peculiarity: they both were slitted, like a cat's, or more accurately:

"Like a wolf's." Twilight spoke up. "From everything Nurse Redheart has told me, you should be clinically dead! It's like you rose from the dead just to be sitting here!" She sounded baffled. "I-I was ready to give up hope of you making it out alright. I saw you when Zecora found-" she paused, an eery silence passing over the room. "When Zecora found your body. Somepony knocked on her door and you were just... There. Limp, motionless... I'm so sorry, I wish I was there for you, Fluttershy!" She ran up and hugged the Pegasus, ignoring the Nurse's warnings.

Gently, the mare patted her friend on the back. "There there, Twilight. I'm safe now, and more importantly, I'm here with friends! No need to worry over something that happened in the past. Even I don't remember much of it, now that I think about it so it must've been unimportant!" She smiled at her group of friends. Nothing could stop them, not even death it seemed. Still, there were so many questions left unanswered, and thinking about what happened hurt her head.

Find the White Wolf...

Fluttershy shuddered at the voice- the same one whispering to her of the delicacies of the heart and blood...


Get up Geralt!

A Witcher never collapses when he has a duty to uphold! Did I not teach you how to survive?! You are the White Wolf, not some boy pretending to be a Knight in shining armor!

GET UP AND FIND YOUR DESTINY!

The Witcher awoke with a start, immediately searching for the silver sword he always kept near him, only to find it wasn't anywhere to be seen. The small hut he found himself in was unfamiliar, moreso the bandages strewn about his naked torso. In fact, he seemed to be in a haze of sorts, the memory of how he got here all but vanished. Additionally, nothing recent save for his Witcher training was there. It was... Gone. His memories. The instincts of years of combat were there, and the knowledge of his magic. Everything else was just... Gone.

Suddenly, he saw movement out of the corner of his eye. "Stay back!" His gruff voice shouted at the shadow making its way to him. It hesitated for a moment before approaching again. Geralt used a small burst of Aard to keep the mystery creature at bay, but to no effect. It approached once more, and he prepared himself for a fight with whatever wits he had left.

Slowly it inched his way, turning the corner until...

A zebra came out. It had jewelry on that seemed familiar and reminded him of a name but nothing else... Zerrikania. "You a Doppler?" He asked, his Witcher knowledge kicking in immediately. The horse shook it's head then spoke in a tongue unknown to him. "I'm sorry, I don't understand."

The zebra spoke again, gesturing with it's hooves. Again, it's speech seemed strange to Geralt's ears. "Whatever you're trying to say, it's not coming through!" Thinking, he switched to a different approach- hand gestures. Opening his mouth, he pointed at it, then to the zebra. He made an X with his arms and shook his head. Smiling, the zebra now understood. Pointing to him, then gesturing it's hoof, it turned away.

"Follow you, got it." Looking around, the Witcher noticed the various bottles and herbs strewn about the small hut. "Hmm..."

The zebra stopped and stood before a cauldron, pointing it's hoof at the contents then at Geralt. "You want me to... Drink it?" He asked, coming closer. Slowly he leaned over and cupped the liquid, sipping some of it before being hit by the zebra. "Sorry! I thought it was a potion." The zebra shot him another look, pointing at him and the cauldron again, then made a diving motion. "I'll bathe outdoors, thanks." He turned to leave but was suddenly stopped short, thanks to a tiny dart suddenly stabbed into his neck. Turning, he looked the Zebra back in the eye with fury.

"Look you little bastard, it's gonna take more than some backwater potion to knock out someone like me, let alone-"

He fell like a rock.

Author's Note:

Hmm...

*Grunts in Witcher*

EDIT 6/4/20: Changed a few lines to help with continuity. Geralt has only his magic and combat instincts as the only memory left now, and will remember more as the story progresses.
