Chapter 3 (Friendship is Magic Part 1)

“Wasn’t she wonderful?” I asked. Rarity was one of the ponies whom I really liked, but she wasn’t my favorite pony.

“Focus, Casanova,” Twilight said. “What’s next on the list?”

“Music. It’s the last one.”

Just then, Twilight and I heard birds singing. We looked to see a yellow pegasus near a tree full of birds. This was Fluttershy, my favorite pony. She was the cutest and kindest out of the Mane 6.

“Oh my, stop please, everyone,” said Fluttershy. Apparently, one of the birds had trouble with its rhythm.

The scene played out just like in the show. Twilight scared the birds away by mistake, she said hello to Fluttershy, Fluttershy acted very shy, and then the birds returned.

“Well, that was easy,” Twilight said as I approached her. I knew what was going to happen next.


“A baby dragon!” Fluttershy exclaimed. She ran over and pushed Twilight aside. “Oh, I’ve never a baby dragon before! He’s so cute.”

“Well, well, well,” I said to Twilight. The fact that Fluttershy called me cute made me blush.

“Oh, my, he talks. I didn't know dragons could talk.”

Dragon and pony interaction sure has come a long way. I forgot how little they got along in the beginning.

“That's just so incredibly wonderful. I just don't even know what to say!” Fluttershy said with glee.

Then I felt something tugging me, and the next thing I knew I was flying onto Twilight’s back.

“Well, in that case, we’d better be going,” Twilight said.

“Wait, wait!” Fluttershy called out. “What’s his name?”

“I’m Spike,” I replied.

“Hi, Spike. I’m Fluttershy. Wow! A talking dragon. What do dragons talk about?”

“What do you want to know?”

“Absolutely everything.” After Fluttershy said that, I could hear Twilight moan.

“Well, I started out as a cute little purple polka-dotted egg...”

I didn’t know what was Spike’s past exactly, so I kept the story broad enough so Twilight wouldn’t get suspicious, yet Fluttershy would still be interested.

“...and that's the story of my whole entire life!” I said. “Well, up until today. Do you want to hear about today?”

“Oh, yes please!” Fluttershy replied.

But before I could say anything to her, Twilight quickly turning around. I was annoyed at first, but then I noticed what was before my eyes. The Golden Oaks Library. I thought I would never see it again. It’s a shame what happened to it after Tirek came along.

Which reminded me. I should try to find a way to prevent Tirek from escaping Tartarus. Obviously, I couldn’t just put him down, as that would be too morbid. I’d have to think of something. I knew that when Cerebus escaped, Tirek wasn’t in Tartarus anymore. I’ll have to keep that in mind.

“....and my poor baby dragon needs his sleep,” Twilight said.

I quickly jumped off. “No I don’t!” I rebutted. Twilight then bumped me with her flank, knocking me down.

Ow. At least she didn’t buck me off this time.

“Aww, wook at dat, he's so sweepy he can't even keep his widdle bawance!” Twilight said. I was less than amused.

“Poor thing.” Fluttershy picked me up. “You simply must get into bed.” She flew into the library. Twilight quickly released me from her grip and pushed her out.

“Yes, yes. We’ll get right on that. Well, goodnight!” Twilight slammed the door.

“Rude much, Twilight?” I asked.

“I’m sorry Spike. I just need to be alone so I can study without a bunch of crazy ponies trying to make friends all the time. Now, where's the light?”

Suddenly the lights went on, followed by a bunch of ponies yelling, “Surprise!”

Then Pinkie jumped right in front of us.

“Hi, I'm Pinkie Pie, and I threw this party just for you!” She said. “Were you surprised? Were ya? Were ya? Huh huh huh?”

“Very surprised,” said Twilight. “Libraries are supposed to be quiet.”

Then Pinkie went on how boring quiet parties were and how we first met her. As she was talking, Twilight walked over to a table and poured herself a drink. I was confused why Twilight used her mouth instead of her magic. I think most of Twilight’s problems would’ve been solved if she’d remembered she had a horn. That’s when I noticed what Twilight was pouring.

“Uh, Twilight,” I said. “You’re pouring hot sauce.”

“Huh?” Twilight levitated the bottle and read it. “Oh, oops.” She grabbed a different bottle and another glass.

“See?” Pinkie continued. “Now you have lots and lots of friends.”

“Mm-hm.” Twilight pretended to listen as she drank from the glass.

“Why is there a bottle of hot sauce here, anyway?” I asked. I got my answer when Pinkie poured a bottle of it onto a cupcake before eating it. I was a bit grossed out by it.

“What?” Pinkie asked. “It’s good.”
