My favorite character is Spike. That's basically all you need to know about me.

Source

It had started out simply enough: Twilight wanted to learn if aliens exist, so she began researching spells.

Did I say 'simply'? I meant 'crazily'.

Well, one thing led to another, and as a result, Spike is now in an unfamiliar world. With Twilight unable to bring him back, he has to search the land for a way home.

Along the way, he must assist some of this world's strange creatures. Will he be able to recover their fabled 'Try Force' and get home before Twilight goes crazy? And will he finally understand what courage truly is?


Timeline placement: Just after Hurricane Fluttershy (Equestrian side); a century after Ocarina of Time / Majora's Mask (Hylian side).

Found this story interesting with Spike in Link's role on these first chapters, looking forward to see where it goes from here! :moustache:

Really liking this Ocarina of Time/BOTW vibe you got going with Spike here, speaking of which I was surprised his dragon mail actually worked in getting Twilight a message, well played! :twilightsmile::moustache:

Glad you think it feels like Ocarina of Time, since I'm trying to draw influence from it without having even played it! :twilightsheepish:

Nice first taste of combat for Spike, too bad about the goat though! :moustache:

Wasn't expecting Twilight to find him so fast (course she's Twilighting so that's not good:facehoof:), have to question her plan for one of the Mane Five to jump in there! :twilightoops:

I hope nobody jumps in. This is Spike's adventure, not theirs

This was a good compromise with that gem spell, after all this is Spike's story, not the Mane Six. Also glad AJ got quick reflexes in stopping Pinkie before she went though! :ajsmug:

Maybe this will be explained in a later chapter, but I can't help being a bit distracted by the placements of Power and Wisdom being switched in your descriptions of the Triforce.

Whoops, good catch!

So Spike's real test starts now, looking forward to see his trek though the Fire Temple! :moustache:

I really like crossover stories
Unless they are scary enough, which doesn’t really happen very often

Everypony blinked, but nodded nonetheless. Better to not question the gem expert and the pink enigma, right?

I’m going to have to decline using the “It’s Pinkie” phrase here. She did grow up on a rock farm after all

...as if she wanted to give him the opportunities to prove his worth!

Ah, good ol' Spike; always the optimist.

Hey, welcome back! :pinkiehappy:

lol just loved the fairies reactions at Spike eating that red rupee & of course this part :

Spike wiped away a bead of sweat that'd formed on his brow, then re-sheathed his sword. "Alright, now that that's taken care of..."

Nuha and Hamzah watched in silent awe as Spike took off everything he had on him, set it down on the ground, and dove straight into the lava. "I don't think that's how this puzzle was meant to be solved..." Hamzah commented.

Spike slowly swam to the other side of the lava moat, pulling himself out with a bit of difficulty due to the viscosity of it. He shook himself clean of any remnant, then approached the chest. Inside, he found...

A large, golden key? "Alrighty, then..." Spike shrugged. Holding the item above his head, he swam back across the moat (it felt a bit soft in his hands, but didn't actually start melting) and reequipped his gear.

Nuha blinked at the item. "That's the boss key! With that, you can open the door to the final chamber."

"Really?" Spike took another moment to look at it. It was a horned design, with a red crystalline skull on one side. "Neato."

"I really don't think that's how the puzzle was supposed to be solved," Hamzah stressed.

Spike shrugged. "It worked, didn't it?" When Hamzah didn't answer, Spike sighed. "Look, if it makes you feel better, I'll try and do the rest of it how it was intended, okay?"

Oh man, wished I could really do that in-game! :rainbowlaugh:

The fight against Stalkoblins was rough, glad Spike pulled though! Course it's not over yet! :twilightoops:

Just saw the hiatus tag on this tale, hope it comes back again soon! :moustache:

It's taking a bit to write, but I'm certainly trying!
