● Year 2020s

Harry yelped as sparks flew out of the console as he attached some wires... best not to tell the girls about that. Next Harry groaned, as he banged his head on the panel above him. On accident of course, as he had grown clumsy with his human form, but he needed the use of fingers. The instinctual precision of such appendages couldn't be beat. Not for delicate work, anyhow.

He was currently covered in grease and some specks of his own blood... he had accidentally cut himself a few times, nothing major, as the wounds healed instantly (as they always did).

Regardless, Sweetie Belle was sure to give him a tongue lashing if she caught him in such a state... then Applebloom would force feed him when she heard he hadn't eaten for the past three weeks. Then Ginny and Hermione would fight for the honor of who got to hex him. While Parvati, Lavender, and Daphne would chain him to his bed, and force him to rest.

Elly would just look at him, like he was an idiot, and make a point of not interfering with the others punishments.

The only one of his wives that would actually be on his side would be Scootaloo. As She seemed to understand that "Master of Death", included starvation as one of the many things that couldn't kill him.

Harry didn't even feel uncomfortable, let alone hungry.

Harry had gone through a lot in his 42 years of life... though he still appeared to be 17. Stopped an evil Dark Lord from conquering two dimensions, and (apparently) he was chosen as some kind of Champion to a death god. Her "Avatar", as it were... Harry still hadn't come to terms with that.

###

Once he was done with the wiring, he turned back into a red and gold unicorn. With how small the tunnel was, he still had to crawl out of the duck... before remembering he could teleport, and doing so.

Harry immediately found himself in the main chamber of the circular room he was building... with Celestia waiting for him, an unreadable expression on her face. No doubt finding his shabby appearance... concerning.

Celestia had retired from the throne over a decade ago. She spent some time traveling, but then devoted herself to her school.

Harry had come to this school for university, but later became a professor. He started teaching Mastery level students Defense Against The Dark Arts. Though later, he found he preferred teaching secondary school children in the same field of magic.

As a professor, he was encouraged to assist with matters of scientific and magical advancement. He had worked on many such projects, over the years, though this was the first one he was leading, himself.

Wands had revolutionized Equus. Even caused a minor school reform... while that, and Princess Twilight's open boarders policy. It wasn't uncommon for races from all over the Equus to come to Equestria's schools.

The new system started with Primary School, where children of all races learned the basic academics together. Then secondary school focused on teaching wand based spell casting, magical theory, and classes were the students were separated by species (but only for the one class, to better teach their unique racial magics). Followed by University, which operated more like a muggle trade school, but with greater detail of study into a specific field. Creatures just didn't have any useless classes that wouldn't effect their desired job... unless they wanted to take an unrelated class as a minor.

Regardless of any of that, Celestia continued to look on with distaste at Harry's appearance, both the sudden flash of light in front of her... and the sheer dishevelment of his person.

"Harry..." She tried to find the words to express her concern. But Potter merely waved his horn and he was perfectly in order again. All clean and even the tears of his Professor robes fixed. Still, that would not deter her, "I realize, ever since you became aware of your immortality, that you have been trying to prove us wrong."

Harry rolled his eyes, "You think my wives would let me get away with killing myself." he joked.

Celestia smiled, "I imagine they would raid the underworld just for the chance to knock you over your head."

Harry shuddered, showing that he believed it.

"If not to prove us wrong, why have you been so reckless with your health?" Celestia pressed.

Harry sighed, "Blame my mom. I tend to be just as focused as she is when I get my mind set on a new project. And since I know I can't die... I might willingly overwork myself, knowing I'll be okay." though it had been a bit more extreme then usual, with how much pressure he was under to get this done on time.

"Perhaps I should summon your wives to aid you." Celestia smiled helpfully, but Harry saw it for the threat it was.

"YOU DON'T NEED TO DO THAT!!!" Harry near panicked at the idea of how his wives would react if they learned he was being careless with his health.

Celestia lost her motherly smile and poked the young Stallion in the chest with her hoof, "Then I trust you won't be so neglectful, or reckless, with your person again." she scolded.

"Yes Ma'am," Harry quickly nodded.

Like any good Stallion of Equestria. Harry knew who was in charge of the herd. The colt might have the power of Luna at his hoof tips, but no stallion was willing to anger their wives. The only thing Mares took more seriously then a Stallion neglecting themselves... was when they were needlessly endangering themselves.

Regardless of how wild the Crusaders could be, they had always been overprotective of Harry...

Ever since he was a foal, and they found him half dead in the Everfree forest... part of the reason Harry was more comfortable around the gods of Equus... was because he learned it had been Discord that opened the portal to send Harry to Equestria in the first place. Discord had saved his life, and given him a family. As the old Chaos god said, "There was some wiggle room" when it came to Harry's destiny.

"How is your portal coming along?" Celestia moved on, now that the colt was sufficiently repentant.

It was strange to hear, the boy who had been impossible to discipline, simply because he was used to far worse then a grounding at the hands of his human relatives, feared nothing more then a dressing down from his wives. Celestia would be worried of Stallion abuse, if she didn't know those mares since they were fillies...

No, it was quite simple. Harry feared disappointing his family, because he still had lingering doubts he was unworthy of their love... those Tartarus damned Dursleys.

Harry gave a sigh of relief at the change of topic, then looked around the lab. "I just finished wiring the screens, that will allow us to observe dimensions before we beam down to them." He integrated muggle theories of an 'Einstein-rosen Bridge' with the ponies portal enchantments, to create a single device. It could, theoretically, punch a temporary hole anywhere on any world. Just long enough to let some creature through. Then that creature could be tracked through the screens and brought home at any time. "We should be ready for next week's test." Harry assured.

There was a live action test scheduled soon. Nothing was being sent through, but there new form of Portal would open up on an agreed upon testing grounds of Earth... they used to test nukes in the area, but the ponies had gotten rid of all the left over radiation.

"I'll be sure to tell Caster you're on schedule," Celestia returned to her smile. "However, I'm sure every creature will understand, if you fall behind. You don't have to try to push your immortality to it's limits. Scientific projects, such as this, experience delays all the time. No pony will hold it against you, if you decide to take off the occasional hour, for a meal."

Harry hung his head, "Yes Ma'am."

"And remember, you have some of the greatest minds, from both Equus and Earth, working with you to accomplish this task. I realize this is the first project you are acting as lead enchanter, but this is hardly the first one you have worked on. That experience should have taught you how important it is for everypony to play their part. I've received complaints that you haven't let anyone do anything, for near 2 weeks. This might be your idea, and your project, but you aren't the sole one excited about working on this."

Harry wished the ground would swallow him. Only Celestia could make an Avatar of a Death god, feel like an errant foal.

"I'll find something for them to do." He promised, "Is just that these last steps are delicate work and they don't understand the theories as well as-"

"Then teach them," was Celestia's answer.

Harry frown, "But if I paused everything just to work in the proper lessons, we won't be able to go through with the test on time-"

"Harry," Celestia smiled patiently, "What did I say about delays?"

Harry sighed.

"These things happen." Celestia assured, "It doesn't matter how fast you get it done. What matters is you do it right. It took Starswirl decades to build his first portal. You needed worry yourself so much over the bureaucracy."

New Timeline:
Given this is now a mix of Two Stories.

● 1st Year.

• The events of "If Wishes Were Ponies", exactly as they happened.

● The Summer, just before 2nd Year.

• The story starts to take inspiration from "Magic School Days". Starting with the winter break, becoming the summer break in this universe.

• The Weasley kids spend some of their vacation with the Apples.

• Twilight creates a spell, to give wizards Pony forms. Which is in addition to their Animagus form. Later, she even perfects the spell into a ritual, anyone could use. Although the Ritual depends more on personality, and innate magical ability, as to what pony tribe your new form would become. As opposed to what you might have wanted. Even Squibs can be put through this ritual, and manage to transform at will. Most of the people, close to the ponies, were put through the ritual.

• On Dumbledore's "Suggestion" to the Princesses, Harry's herd spends some of their vacation with their Gryffindor year mates. Both short visits to their homes, on Earth, and the wizard-kin coming to Ponyville. With them visiting Equestria, being insisted on by The Princesses.

• Snape is allowed, by Dumbledore, to have various Death Eaters arrested, for child abuse.

• Without the protections of these key Death Eaters, as they held a large amount of political power, Starlight Glimmer is able to move forward. Rallying the wizards, through the press she now owns, to reopen investigations into all accused Death Eaters, who got off due to an Imperius Curse claim. The Minister is forced to bend to public opinion.

• Starlight is able to get muggle borns to claim the house seats, of the Death Eaters that were arrested. Even claiming a seat for herself.

• Lord Sirius Black dissolves the marriage contract, between Lucius Malfoy and his wife Narcissa. Lord Black proceeds to reabsorb Narcissa into the black family.

• Draco, and his mother, were moved into Black Manor. Accepted by her cousin, Sirius Black, Lord of the Black Family.

• Sunburst evaluates Twilight's ritual, and creates an amulet which will allow for temporary shifting between pony, humanoid form (using Equestria girls coloring for ponies), and an Earth magical being form (Centaur, House Elf, Goblin, Giant, or other beings straight out of a D&D Monster Manual). That works on either side of the portal. A side effect of this amulet is it acts more as a training focus. Meaning, after prolonged use, it will no longer be necessary to transform. He begins selling them in a shop in the Earth Embassy, but at first only to magicals and Squibs, due to the statue of secrecy.

• Sirius writes up a new marriage contract, between Narcissa and Remus Lupin. As they were childhood friends, and clearly still have feelings for each other. Draco throws a fit, seeing himself in even further disgrace at becoming the ward to a Werewolf. Sirius retaliates by writing a marriage contract for Draco. Marrying him off to be the trophy husband of the filly, Diamond Tiara.

• Princess Luna teaches the werewolves of Earth, to embrace what she calls their "gift". Allowing the Werewolves to keep their minds, without need of a potion. As well as how to turn at will, without pain. To live in Harmony with the wolf inside them.

• Harry Potter becomes cousins with Draco, when Lord Black sleeps with Princess Twilight Sparkle, and their magic recognizes them as married. Harry is hesitant, but Spike is thrilled to have a dad.

• Feeling bad about not sharing her husband, in a proper herd, Twilight introduces Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie to Sirius... and with Sirius being Sirius, they "mate" that very night. The ministry, and their family tapestry, recognize them as married.

• Daphne Greengrass buys some of Sunburst amulets, as gifts for herself and her little sister Astoria. However, the amulet reacts badly with Astoria's blood curse, and she nearly dies. Sunburst is able to stabilize her, before bringing the family to Ponyville hospital to be treated. Where, much to the family's amazement, the ponies are able to treat the blood curse. Even cure it.

• Daphne goes to stay with Rarity while her sister is being treated. However, when the family comes to reclaim their daughter, a misunderstanding occurs with the Greengrass parents, and Rarity thinks they are courting her. When this is revealed, after much embarrassment, the Greengrass realize they don't mind the idea of entering a "Herd" with Rarity.

• Discord giggles with delight at all the chaos being unleashed, and it is revealed he made the first portal, saving Harry's life. He has been working with the gods of Chaos, Choice (AKA "Free Will"), and even Justice, to manipulate things on both sides of the portal. Discord gets tired of acting behind the scenes, and starts interfering more directly, much to the displeasure of the gods of Earth, who have a long standing policy of not interacting directly with mortals. Discord exposes magic to the entire world, by posing as a freelance reporter, and sends irrefutable evidence to all the major news stations around the world.

• Magic is exposed to the entire world, and most of the muggles take it surprisingly well.

● 2nd Year at Hogwarts.

• Dozens of teachers, from Equestria, are brought to Hogwarts, in order to teach, or simply act as teacher's assistants. With Zecora becoming the new potions instructor, although Snape maintains his roles as "potion master" (meaning he is in charge of making most of the school's potions), and Head of Slytherin.

• A thousand of Equestria's best and brightest foals, are selected to go to Hogwarts. However, other students have their parents pay for the privilege. Such as: Button Mash, Rumble, Dinky Whooves, Diamond Tiara, Silver Spoon, and over 4 dozen others. Diamond Tiara, Silver Spoon, and Rumble, are sorted into Slytherin. Where Diamond is named "Slytherin Primus" by the sorting hat.

• On the train ride to Hogwarts, Discord gives Luna Lovegood a Crystal bat pony form. The first of such Hybrids.

• Diamond forms an Alliance with Applebloom's herd. And orders Draco to respect it.

• Sweetie Belle is discovered by an Earth Unicorn mare, who decides to adopt the filly.

• As the first month goes by, Snape becomes less resentful of being replaced as a teacher. As he gets to know Zecora, and begins to fall in love with her. They sleep together, but it isn't for a couple weeks, before they learn their magic bound them as a married couple. Zecora, not wanting to keep Snape to herself, introduces him to Applejack, and a Bat pony guard the Zebra is friends with. It takes the entire year, before the mares can convince Snape to form a herd with them.

• Draco gets more used to being a "Trophy Colt" and finds he enjoys not only Diamond's cunning, but the way she pampers him. Draco even slowly forms a rough friendship with Applebloom's herd, including Harry.

• Harry discovers Elly is a changeling, and after discussing it with his herdmates, ask Elly to join their herd. While promising to keep her secret.

• On further discussion with his herd, Luna Lovegood is added as well. As Harry feels protective of her. Due to how she is being bullied by her Ravenclaw Housemates.

• Twilight steps in, saying 7 mares is far too many for one Stallion, and insist the fillies either find some other colts to add, or kick out all the humans. Harry's herd respond to this by asking Neville if he would like to join, over breakfast in the great hall. This results in the other Gryffindor 2nd years asking if they can join to... Twilight is shocked they are able to build such a large herd, with so many Stallions. Not even minding that they ended up adding more girls.

• Needing 1 more girl, for their herd to be legal. (Given herds at least 2 mares for every Stallion). They ask Daphne Greengrass.

• The boys are Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley, Neville Longbottom, Dean Thomas, and Seamus Finnigan. While girls Hermione Granger, Ginny Weasley, Lavanda Brown, Parvati Patil, Luna Lovegood, Elly de Ripp, Daphne Greengrass, Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo.

• Dumbledore discovers Elly is a changeling, but, given Elly's record at the school, including once saving Harry's life, decides to allow Elly to stay in attendance, and doesn't inform the Ministry, or the ponies. Similar to what he did for Remus, when he was a student.

• The Ministry, fearing how involved the ponies are becoming in their government, declares war. Discord steps in, and scares the piss out of the Ministry. Getting them to agree to leave the ponies alone.

• Starlight is found by the ponies, helping rebuild / reshape wizarding government. Twilight manages to convince her to abandon her plans to conquer Earth, and Starlight becomes Twilight's first student of Friendship.

• Voldemort's diary consumes the soul of a Slytherin Child, and teen Tom Riddle leaves the castle. None the Wiser.

● 4th Year of Hogwarts.

• Harry's name comes out of the Goblet of Fire, and he is forced to compete in a deadly tournament. This causes an interdimensional incident, when Twilight learns the Goblet will kill Harry if he refuses to compete. Even though he didn't put his name in.

• When Harry wins the tournament, Voldemort uses the opportunity to capture the teen. Ransoming him back to Twilight, in exchange for all Ponies knowledge of magic. Including their fusions with muggle technology. All 4 Princesses agree to the deal. Allowing Voldemort to leave peacefully, as ponies are creatures of their word.

● 5th Year of Hogwarts.

• Few believe Harry that Voldemort is back. And the Ministry tries to silence him. Even sending Dolores Umbridge into the school, armed with Blood Quills.

• Dolores Umbridge uses a Blood Quill on Harry, and Twilight finds out. She immediately sends her guard to Hogwarts, arresting Umbridge. Then sentencing her to a thousand years in the Chaos dimension. Assuring her, Discord has agreed to keep her alive for that long.

• The Ministry does not react well to Umbridge's arrest. But back down when Twilight informs them she would gladly go to war over this. As the Wizarding Government appears to be truly irredeemable. Celestia is seconds away from declaring war, herself.

• Voldemort attacks the ministry, with ponies magic guns.

• The Ministry begs for Celestia's help, too which she refuses. Instead, rounding up magical civilians (from wizards, house elves, Goblins, and dozens of other species). Which she brings into Her embassy. While leaving the Ministry to fend for itself.

• Celestia orders all the ponies out of Hogwarts. Along with the herds they have formed. Including all the families, and even friends of, those herds.

• The Ministry panics at all the people leaving their boarders, and destroy the portal at the pony Embassy.

• It turns out destroying the portal was orchestrated by all gods of fate, from both dimensions. As their own attack against Discord. Casting him out of their dimension, and reversing all the transformation magics he used to turn others into ponies. However, the gods of Choice, Chaos, Justice, and magic retaliate. Rebelling against their non-interference policy, and revealing themselves to mankind.

• Meanwhile, Sunburst, who was one of the ponies that got trapped on this side, starts mass producing his amulet. With an unintended side effect being ponies, who use it to turn into humans, now keep their pony coloring, even in human form.

• The gods of magic begin teaching wizarding owls how to travel between dimensions. With the ponies arming the owls with pouches (containing a large luxurious room inside). Unfortunately, the gods warn these are more limited then portal travel, as they are still bound by some rules, and won't just bless the owls with abilities they don't naturally possess. Owls are the Messengers of gods. With wizards (being distant descendants of demigods) having just taken to using them without realizing all they are capable of. The owls can travel to other dimensions, but they can't rewrite anything they bring with them to fit that universes laws. So traveling can be dangerous, as the ponies that go back might get dimensional sickness.

• Voldemort learns what owls can do, and doesn't bother with the testing the ponies are doing. Merely sending an army of Owls across dimensions, to recruit the ponies greatest enemies. Given Celestia doesn't hold power over the human's sun, the more dangerous races of Equus form an alliance with Voldemort. Deciding to fight their battle on Earth. World War 3 breaks out. With ponies being unwilling to call for reinforcements, as they don't know the long term effects of owl travel.


● Season 6 of Friendship is Magic, during what would have been Harry's 6th year of Hogwarts.

• After much testing, ponies confirm Owl travel is safe, and start sending ponies back and forth between dimensions.

• Discord returns to Earth, and he, and all of Equus gods, get pulled into a war of their own. As many of the Earth gods are rebelling against their Elder God, causing a full out civil war.

• Elly is discovered to be a changeling, when she lays several eggs. Twilight is pissed, as Harry is the father, and Twilight believes Elly used her son. Possibly even replaced the real Elly. However, Harry reveals he's known she was a changeling, since their second year at Hogwarts.

• Spike meets Thorax, and befriends the young changeling. Twilight learns, for certain, that the issue is Chrysalis, not the Queen's Children.

• Elly used her Philosopher's Stone to create trees which produce love honey, in berry form.

• Chrysalis escapes into the human world, through one of Voldemort's portals, and attempts to destroy the love honey trees, as well as kill the new Queen Elly and her grubs. Dumbledore saves Elly.

• Thorax returns to Chrysalis' hive, and leads a Rebellion. Which ends with him ascending into a Changeling Queen, and all his siblings transforming into their "Reformed" changeling forms.

• Elly learns, due to being on Earth, there isn't enough magic in the human dimension, for her to properly transform. Instead she only slightly mutates. Her holes fill, her exoskeleton changes into darker pastel colors, although her mane still looks like colorful thick spider-webs. All the grubs, in their eggs mutate similarly. Even all of them gaining Spider-web manes and tails. Unfortunately, due to them partially transforming, they can't complete it. Not even if they return to Equus. Elly doesn't mind too much, as she thinks the darker colors, and keeping her fangs, is a nice look.

• Other Changeling Queens follow Thorax lead, and transform into their reformed state. However all the Queens turn into a different kind of bug. No two the same. They become a wide variety of different types of bug horses. But with all their Drones, workers, and Warriors, matching the same species as their queen.

Changeling Species
* Doppelgangers (Elly).
* Love Bugs (Thorax) .
* Forest (Based on Lovestruck Derpy, with wood branches and moss growing out of them).
* Moths.
* Crickets.
* Bees.
* Spiders.
* Wasps.
* etc.

● What would have been Harry's 7th Year of Hogwarts.

• The first eggs, of a reformed Changeling Queen, is hatched. However, they are the same species as their mother, and the changelings realize they are dozens of subspecies, each their own proper race.

• Harry joins the fight to defeat Voldemort. Mostly to save Equestria, and her Allies.

• Harry learns Voldemort found a new way to be immortal. Without any Horcruxes left, he had himself bitten by a Vampire, and then created a more traditional phylactery. Turning himself into a hybrid Lich / Vampire. In order to eternally maintain his beauty, and gain true immortality.

• Harry goes on a hunt for the phylactery, knowing, if he destroys it, Voldemort will instantly die.

• Harry finds the phylactery, but it is trapped in a dimension that never moves... if he goes in, to get it, he can destroy the phylactery... but will be lost for all eternity. Harry jumps in without a second thought, but joined by both his friends and family. Including the herds of: Snape, Draco, Twilight, and his own. Even Elly joins. As Well as the Black family.

• The group sleeps in a luxurious expanded suitcase (Even bigger then the one from "Fantastic Beast and where to find them"). Which is also were Elly's grubs are raised, and hatched. Elly is largely providing everyone with a base of operations, and keeping everything neat and tidy. As she doesn't want to risk her next batch of eggs, which she is currently pregnant with. As Changeling Queens can have sex once, and start laying a dozen or more eggs, once a month, for hundreds of years.

• The group had to go through hundreds of traps, and battle various dangerous creatures. But they manage to get to the final chamber, only to see Voldemort is waiting for them.

• An epic Battle erupts, with Harry being the one to destroy the phylactery.

• From there, the herds discover a portal back to Earth, and are finally able to get back home.

● 1 year after the war.

• Thorax takes Spike as his Consort, who is already in a relationship with Gabby. So they form a herd. With Gabby being the first Griffin to join a herd, in over a thousand years.

• Thorax starts laying eggs of his own.

• Twilight opens up her "School of Friendship", however she uses teachers from all races of their dimension, and attempts to promote interspecies cooperation. Rather then teaching friendship, the school is designed to encourage it. Most of the Mane 6 act more as guest Speakers, and occasionally oversee field trips. However, they aren't teachers. Rarely stopping by, as this is more Twilight's dream.

• The war of the gods ends as well. With all gods that rebelled being cast out, and taken in by Equus.

● 3 years after the war.

• Celestia steps down and Twilight becomes ruler of Equestria.

• Starlight inherits the School of Friendship.

• Starlight joins a herd with her friends Maud Pie, Sunburst, and Trixie.
