Chapter 50- Timey-Wimey

"Hello everypony to the show!" Silverstream introduced every creature to the show, "And today we are here with a very special guest from the town to be on the show to talk about everything on time."

"So to stop us from wasting time ourselves, please welcome to the show, the good Doctor Whooves," Every creature clapped to welcome the guest, who waved his hoof in dismissal.

"Well, the pleasure is all mine to say the least. And I guess you are all wondering what business time has to do with everything, right?" Every creature nodded with curiosity. The Doctor soon went into proper lecture mode.

"Time. Time doesn't pass. The passage of time is an illusion, and life is the magician," The Doctor started off, before being interrupted by Pinkie.

"You mean like Trixie's illusions and magic tricks?" Pinkie tilted her head.

"Probably something more complicated than that. Time is more like Trixie's smoke bombs I think. It's more of a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff," The Doctor tried to explain, but trailed off as it escaped from him.

"So like how the glass is holding the smoke of times in place?" Gabby questioned.

"Precisely, young griffon!" The Doctor said, "The smoke is all that wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff, and the ball of glass holds it all together. Not like some piece of strong on the end of a balloon," He paused at that, "No offense Pinkie."

"None taken," Pinkie waved a hoof.

"Life only lets you see one day at a time. You remember being alive yesterday, you hope you're going to be alive tomorrow, so it feels like you're travelling from one to the other. But nobody's moving anywhere. Movies don't really move-"

"Oh I love going to the movies," Pinkie jumped in again, causing the Doctor to groan in annoyance, "I love the popcorn and slushies and sweets and eating it all in front of the big screen!" The others laughed at that. The Doctor coughed into his hoof to get every creatures attention.

"As I was saying. Movies are just lots and lots of pictures in a film. All of them still, none of them moving. Just frozen moments. But if experience those pictures one after the other, then everything comes alive," The Doctor rambled on in his professional tone of teaching. Silverstream yawned.

"This makes Twilight's lectures more interesting," Silverstream sighed, causing Doctor Whooves' eye to twitch.

"Okay then, let's talk about you and all your friends over time," The Doctor rolled his eyes, "It's true that you all didn't have the best start, but over time you learnt about each creature didn't you?"

"I thought we are the ones interviewing you," Autumn interjected, only to have a hoof to her mouth.

"Now, it's rude to interrupt somepony when he's talking you know?" The Doctor stopped her. Autumn's horn began to flame.

"Now, as we learn about each other, so we learn about ourselves. I think you learnt that together with the rest of your student friends," The Doctor continued.

"I believe Starlight didn't want to relive the whole time travel thing, and your fieldtrip was rather uninteresting," Silverstream said, "Smolder told me about her experience."

"Oh," The Doctor realised, "That might explain it, and I wanted to get back into my other projects."

"Looks like time wasn't on your side there," Pinkie snickered, causing the others to laugh. The Doctor just crossed his hooves together and stuck his muzzle in the air.

"I'm afraid they couldn't find the time for it," Gabby laughed.

"Well creatures, I'm afraid that's all we have time for today. Thank you for the good Doctor here for being with us to chat the ins and outs of time. Be sure to tune in next time for more talks. However, it's bye for now," Pinkie rounded off whilst every creature were still in fits of laughter.

"I learnt that as well with the Cutie Mark Crusaders!" Gabby smiled, which the Doctor nodded.

"Friendships form over periods of time, and we move with them. We all change. When you think about it, we're all different creatures all through our lives. That's how friendships grow into something special, isn't it? And I've always wondered why I wasn't chosen to be a new teacher at Starlight's process," The Doctor huffed.

Author's Note:
