I'm a brony and a Pinkie Pie fan but I like all of the mane six, as well as Spike. I hope to provide some entertaining and interesting fanfics for the Brony community.


(Story idea requested by Yaakov Lubin who also serves as proofreader. Takes place in an alternative universe after Season 5.)

One morning, Spike wakes up to find himself in a strange and unfamiliar place. To his surprise he discovers that he's an actual baby dragon with an emphasis on the "baby" aspect. And Twilight is his caretaker.

Curious as to why no one remembers him never being this before, Spike tries to figure out how he ended in what he concludes to be a parallel universe. And more importantly, how he'll find a way back to his own universe.

In the meantime, Spike will have to get used to having a mommy. And there will be much he'll come to learn about this parallel universe and its Spike's whereabouts.

This reminds of a different story I came across.

Where did that cover art came from?

Excellent job on the start of this story. Love the work that went into the exchanges, characterizations and future chapter set-up in all the right places. I can certainly understand why Spike would be so confused about finding himself a baby again as well as reflecting on the last time he was actually a baby. Of course, I have to wonder how the test for Celestia's School For Gifted Unicorns was altered or, if, like Flurry Heart, Twilight was born an alicorn in this universe. Definitely liked the reaction to this version of Starlight tickling him.

Now, on to the next chapter.

Excellent work on the second chapter/end of the first half of this story. Definitely loved the work that went into the exchanges, characterizations and future chapter set-up. Well, Spike knows that this version of Spike (which he has apparently either swapped minds with or is sharing a mind with [though the latter seems the most likely for the time being]) was hatched a little before the Cake twins were born. And, yeah, I can see where Spike might be thinking that he would actually be liking this if it weren't for the grown-ups being so patronizing. And the stuff with this universe's Pinkie and Rarity make sense for this universe too.

Definitely looking forward to the second half of this.

10797863 What do you mean? I already did, didn't I?

Oddly enough, I keep getting this thoughts of Twilight finding Spike's egg at one of the Great Dragon Migrations in this universe (either from Celestia taking Twilight on one shortly before she arrived in Ponyville or, in this universe, the Great Dragon Migration taking place SHORTLY BEFORE the Cake Twins were born). Either way, Twilight noticed the egg being orphaned and hatched it herself.

Though, admittedly, I'm probably over-thinking it and am more likely to be wrong than right.

Of course, I profusely apologize for potential spoilers, however minor they might be in this case.

It could be the Cutie Map's Time Vortex, but it is a possibility. But, I think Spike being in that alternate reality might be due to a different theory.

Excellent work on the exchanges, characterizations and climax set-up of the second-to-last chapter. Could definitely empathize with Spike as he was reflecting on not just his experiences in this universe, but what could have happened to the other Spike. And, yeah, it DOES make sense that Starlight's time-messing shenanigans in this universe had an negative effect on the other Spike and put this Twilight in "extremely worried mother" mode. But I DID enjoy the picnic scene with the alternate versions of the rest of the Mane Six.

Judging by the bit with those pictures, I'm guessing that, in this universe, dragons age much more slowly than ponies (mentally as well as physically), so even though the other Spike is technically the same age as him, he is still a baby in mind as well as body. Of course, that kind of provides a bit of extra nightmare fuel when one thinks of a literal baby having to help take down Sombra.

At any rate, certainly looking forward to the next/final chapter.

I kinda feel like this chapter were rushed. Dont get me wrong, i can see that you thought what events would lead to a 'satisfying' ending.
But it feels like each of these 'keypoints' could have been their own chapter.

One chapter for the picnick.
One for the dream and the following conversation.
Perhaps one where he tries to get hold of quill ink and paper (which could lead into a bath chapter)
One for where spike perhaps cant find all the blocks.
One for when it finally dawned on twilight.
And one for the epilog.

Great job on this final chapter. Definitely enjoyed the work that went into the exchanges, characterizations and wrap-up. Definitely appreciated the stuff with Luna as well as the realization that the other Twilight was the one that brought him to that alternate universe (as well as the stuff with the blocks to finally explain things to the other Twilight and Starlight.. And, yeah, that kind of brings a rather literal meaning to Always a Child To Parent trope (I'm pretty sure that's what it's called, I could be wrong). And I DO appreciate that you did NOT go for the other Spike being lost forever or even long term. Most of all, I appreciated the chat Spike had with his Twilight when he finally got home.

And Happy Mother's Day to YOUR family.

Regrettably, my computer's battery is on its last legs, so I'm probably going to be on "read only" for a while.

10805033 Never thought about a bath chapter.

I was thinking Twilight would have reacted worse when spike said she was not his mom at the end

Well, if this is Spike supposed to be more similar to the canon. Then Twilight is an older sister, and if I told my older brother "You're not my dad" when he is being all gooey and concerned, he would roll his eyes at me.

I was thinking, Discord might be involved.
As he usually is.
This is much more original
