Chapter 7

Chapter 7

“Wow, that’s really interesting! So you just woke up one day and you were in the forest?” Twilight asks.

The two of you had really gotten acquainted during the past few hours. You actually had a lot in common, it seemed.

“Yeah; I survived for three days on berries and fresh water from a small pond I found there.”

True story. You actually found a small pond after going nearly 2 days without water. It was the most beautiful sight you had the pleasure of beholding.

“Wow, incredible… what was it like in there? I’ve never heard of anyone aside from Zecora surviving in the forest on their own.”

During the hours that the two of you have been talking, she’s told you of all of the adventures that she and her friends had shared together. The defeat and conversion of Nightmare Moon and Luna, the Sonic Rainboom that the rainbow pony, who you learned was named Rainbow Dash, performed…

It seemed that things were a lot more interesting here than they were in your world.

“It was… well, like any other forest that I had traveled in before during a kid. It’s more or less what you described and saw when you went in with your friends, but in a much larger, denser volume.”

“What about poison joke? Did you ever walk into any of that?”

You shake your head. “Nothing like what you described, at least.”

However, after everything that’s happened to you the past few days, you doubt the validity of that statement.

“Oh… I see…” she mutters, looking up at you. “Hey, Anonymous, I’m a bit curious. What are other humans like… well, back on your world?”

“Well, they look a lot like me, really. Some let their hair grow out, others shave it all off, some are buff, some are slim… you really get all ends of the spectrum back on my world.”

“Interesting… and what about females?”

You’re a bit surprised by the change of subject. “Well, women are typically more slender than men, more of an hourglass-shape, really.” You stand up and demonstrate with your hands along your sides to show her the shape.

“Huh. That’s actually very interesting. I’ll have to look into that…” she mutters, almost inaudibly.


“Oh, nothing,” she giggles, waving her hoof. “Now, I think it’s a bit late to be selling masks, wouldn’t you agree?” she asks, looking up at the clock.

Wow, time flies when you’re having fun talking with someone. It’s already 2:20 AM.

“Yeah, I guess so.”

“You go on ahead and get to bed, Anonymous; I’ll come up in a bit.”

You nod, standing up and walking up the stairs to your bed.

Wow, she was really interesting, wasn’t she? The two of you had a lot to talk about; economics, science and mathematics, you never got this sort of intellectual stimulation since college.

And even then, most of that stimulation was at parties… oh god, the parties…

You drank so much at those parties back then; you thought your body was never going to forgive you. But your liver was a total bro, and held steadfast through those difficult times.

One good thing about going to this world; no more student loans to pay back.

You chuckle, landing on the bed once again and closing your eyes. You never thought talking with someone else would take so much energy out of you. Your mind slowly begins to wander as you drift off to sleep…

“…Twilight? What’re you doing?”

“Trying something out.”

“Why are you-”

“Shh…! Spike, you’re going to wake him up…!”

“Eh, whatever, I’m going back to sleep…”

“You do that.”

You feel a slight shift in the weight of your bed, which causes you to stir a bit.

You slowly open your eyes, and look back into…

Purple eyes.

Purple HUMAN eyes.

Purple NAKED HUMAN eyes.

Control yourself, Anon.

Don’t freak out.


You’re freaking out.




“Morning, Anonymous,” she says, the sun just now beginning to shine from the horizon.

Yep, it’s morning. Early morning. You probably got around… 3 hours sleep?

She’s smiling at you with the most bedroom-looking eyes you’ve seen since you arrived here.

Which isn’t really saying much, with all things considered.

She’s fully human from head to toe, with purple hair and a pink highlight through it just like her mane was that night. Judging from her face, she was mostly Asian, though you saw a few other racial features in her face.

And looking further down, her body was just like you described human women to look like.

And her boobs. Oh god, HER BOOBS…

You’re unsure whether this is a good or bad thing.

“…What happened?” Your face at that time was almost enough for her to burst out laughing.

“Surprised? Good, I wanted to surprise you. I worked all night on this spell, but finally managed to get it work like I wanted. I have to say, moving these up here was a bit of work…” she mutters, poking her breast. “Usually they’re further down, but I think this gives me more of that…” she grins, motioning with her hands like you did that night, “hourglass figure?”

What do you do, Anon?

“Oh , hello there, I’m the Happy Mask Salesman. I travel the world in search of rare masks to add to my collection.”

“Creepy? Yes, well, I suppose it’s not every day you see someone like me walking around in this world.”

“What’s this I have in my hands? Oh, it’s nothing you need to concern yourself with. But, since you asked…”

“Can you hold it? Oh my, that’s not a very good idea. For you see, this mask… it’s called Majora’s Mask.”

“Why can’t you hold it? Because, child, this mask while being very powerful, is very dangerous. It has the power to grant the wishes of anyone who chooses to wear it… but you see… it has a terrible curse! This mask is haunted by the spirit of a monster once sealed away long ago by the ancient ones…”

“No; wait, what are you doing?! No, don’t take that! My mask… oh no, something terrible is going to happen because of this, I just know it…”

Alright, for those who want to see what -really- happened once Twilight surprised Anonymous at the end of the chapter, go here.


Good. Now that I've safely warned you, nothing can possibly go wrong!
