Another Human in Equestria story.

Inspired by the "You Are Now Rainbow Dash" post over at Equestria Daily.

The last thing Mike remembers is a friend of his trying to introduce him to some girly kids show. Now, inexplicably, he's a flying blue pony in a world full of technicolor ponies. Can he figure out what's happened? Can he get home? Can this all happen without any shipping?

awesome so far:
I love this kind of story.


Thanks! I hope you continue to enjoy it.

I not usually one for the humans in Equestria thing, but this...this works. First time I've seem somebody get quantum leaped into a pony (and one of the main cast at that). Nice start, definitely.

wait, a non-brony went to equestria? :rainbowderp:

WHYYYY? cruel destiny, he doesn't deserve that gift! WHYYYYY? :raritydespair:

Pd: Nice story, dude. Keep going like that


Oh man, now I have to make a Quantum Leap reference in a later chapter. I loved that show.


I thought it would be fun to have that be somebody's introduction to Friendship is Magic. :P Thanks for reading, and I hope it continues to go as smoothly.

This is great so far! Please, please do more of this.


I second what UnderstatedHyperbole said… If there's a good way to go about with Human in Equestria, I say that's one. :rainbowdetermined2: I'm eager for the next chapter! :eeyup:

@Ardashir: On it right now, actually!

@Ekevoo (Anonymous post #7): Great! Glad to hear it!

Yeah, this chapter's pretty much just slapstick. Think of that word while reading the last sentence, why don't you? :pinkiecrazy:

Ow...just freakin' ow...

Was actually wondering if Dash would be appearing in this...that's an...interesting way if, as Dash put it, "awkward."

Dave, you might be scaring me bro.

I'm not sure if this is brilliant or extremely silly. In any case, it's quite entertaining. Keep it up!

Dave is scaring you? He's not me, BTW. :derpytongue2: So if I'm scaring you, I'm honestly not sure if I'm sorry or not. Am I entertaining, at least?

Can't it be both? I'm leaning towards silly myself, although I've got a plot point coming up that edges away from silly and into semi-serious.

I'm not going to lie, I laughed out loud for like five minutes after I got done reading chapter two. :pinkiehappy:

Really? :pinkiehappy: I was hoping it would be as amusing to you guys as it was to write!

"It wasn't until after I freaked out and started punching the larger flesh-devouring worm that had attached itself to me that I remembered that Mike was male."

:rainbowlaugh: awesome way to end the chapter

I really like that this "human becomes a pony in Equestria" involves a swapping of minds, so you get Dash in, uh, here as well. And I like that you chose Dash for this; Twilight, for instance, would have been too analytical, Fluttershy would have been too scared, and Pinkie would have been too random. Dash works perfectly.


Thanks! I'm working on the next chapter -- been INSANELY busy with work for the last week or thirty.

:heart:I look forward to reading what happens next in your story:heart:

"No," I paraphrased, "on second thought, let's not go to Canterlot. It is a silly place."

Twilight frowned. "You are weird," she said, "Rainbow Dash or not."

Yay. :derpytongue2:

:rainbowlaugh: WASHINGPONY! :rainbowlaugh: :rainbowlaugh: :rainbowlaugh:
This is genious! Please keep it up! XD

By brain has cracked and I must quote Monty!
Still amusing. I imagine those puns can get quite insufferable. (I know I get a little twitch when there's a title drop...)

Raaaaagggghhh!!! More! Moremoremoremoremore!! :flutterrage:

Really, in these last days before season 2, I really need my pony fix, and for some reason we seem to be caught in an endless purgatory of pretty much nothing but Grimdark, Sad, and fics that just otherwise screw up the ponies these past few weeks. To see an actually really clever human in Equestria story that's well written like this and takes a comedic tone... you have no idea how much I needed this right now. :yay: :heart:

I hope we see more of this real soon! :eeyup:

I must say, this is a pretty cool concept. I'd definitely like to see where this is going, especially more of Rainbow Dash's reaction to the real world.

I love the sense of humor you have and it lends well into writing. Panicking before realizing that you were already panicking and moving on to confusion was priceless. One critique though, eye color on Fluttershy is cyan instead of green.


Not sure how long I'll be able to keep alternating perspectives before I have to settle on Mike almost exclusively, but I've got some stuff planned.


You're absolutely right. Fortunately, Mike is neither a brony nor all that palette aware, so we'll just call it his mistake and move on. :scootangel:

♫♥I look forward to reading what happens next in your story♥♪

I got to say, I'm way more interested in what Rainbow Dash is going through than what Mike is.

Mike does have his moments, particularly with his Monty Python joke.

Oh dear Celestia, I probably gave one of you freaks an idea, didn't I? Remind me to find out if Twilight can get me internet access in Equestria once I get back. I want to read it.

Author's Note: Rainbow's chapters are all likely to be this short, it seems. I can't get her to be more verbose and still feel like Rainbow Dash.
Eh, makes sense. She always gets the job done quickly, right. :rainbowlaugh:

Pretty sure there's already been a story where Twilight murders all her friends...

Obligatory MOAR.
This is good stuff.

LMAO You just had to do the Monty Python bit!

let's see where this goes shell we

Dun, dun, duuuuun... I choose to read that last idiom literally because then Discord happened. But that would just be silly, wouldn't it?
Definitely wish these were getting longer. Confound thine cliffhangers.

Well, this is certainly a fascinating spin on several different concepts. And perhaps the most unconventional way possible to introduce someone to FiM. I must admit, I only skimmed Chapter 4. Rainbow Dash telling off the brony community... well, the idea was simultaneously terrifying and shame-inducing.
In any case, I look forward to more. This should be fascinating, especially when Dash is faced with an entire Everfree Planet and if/when Mike encounters Scootaloo.

Yes, let's! Hint: The song title used for the next Mike chapter is by Tom Petty.

It would be silly, yes. Since I started this story pre-Discord, I've decided that's when it takes place. Although...

"Congratulations, Mike, you're the new Rainbow Dash."

If it makes you feel better, she does follow it up by shipping Twilestia. For laughs.

Nothing of particular interest here... up until that last part it is just watching someone learn stuff we already know. Which is perfectly fine writing, but not terribly comment-inspiring...

I can see how you might feel that way. The problem is that if I don't spend that time introducing Mike to concepts we already have, the story will be rushed and, frankly, terrible. His reactions to the things we're already familiar with are important.

Yeah, I imagine that face was priceless

come on man.... every human in these "Human in Equestria" are fucking pussy's
where are the thief's and killers. make something like that

I've got no problem with grimdark stories, but I'd rather not contribute to the whole Human=Evil thing. Having said that, I kind of like the idea of a cat-burglar in equestria. That would be an awesomely awkward cutie-mark to explain in social situations, too.

"Ah, heh-heh-heh, my cutie mark? Oh... yeah, the, uh, bag with the bit sign on it is because I'm... a banker! Yeah. And the mask on top of it is because I'm a... super-hero banker!"

Right, like I don't have enough stories to write, now I want to write about Equestria's greatest thief on top of all that.

Nice, on zeir ownz!

Poor Guy. Much as I love this show, I can imagine the horror of being stuck in a magical land of ponies.

4476 There are several fandom-based guesses we can make.

1. Rainbow Dash is heterosexual. In which case, sprouting a penis is rather creepy.
2. Rainbow Dash is homosexual. In which case, sprouting a penis is even creepier.
3. Rainbow Dash is a preop FtM. In this case, she might celebrate being male, but that would be cancelled out by the emasculating loss of wings.
4. Rainbow Dash is a postop MtF. In this case, she'd say "Oh Shit, not again."

You don't know the half of it Michael Dash.
