Sitting patiently in a big room behind a large desk is a small toddler wearing a red obi sash tied around his waist, a blue robe with pink trim, brown pants, black shoes, a big hat with the abbreviation for Junior on it, and a blue pacifier in his mouth, his name is Koenma. Despite his appearance he’s a lot older than he looks, matter of fact he’s seven hundred years old. How’s this possible you ask? Well Koenma is the ruler of the spirit world; he judges which spirits go to heaven and which go to hell, plus he assigns missions to his current spirit detective residing in the human world.

While at his desk he glances over at a closed folder, sighing at the current case that was just handed to him. A door to his left opens as a blue ogre with a single horn on his forehead, pointed ears, and balding blond hair wearing a brown and black stripped loincloth; walks in as he carries a tray with a full teapot and two empty tea cups and sets them on his desk. The ogre takes notice that something is bothering his boss as he picks up the tray.

“Is everything all right sir?”

“It’s this case that came up unexpectedly, in all my years, I have never seen anything like this happen before, I doubt even my father has.” He sighs as he looks over at his ogre assistant. “Now Jorge a very important guest will be arriving, I don’t want you to disturb us, if I should happen to call you I don’t want you going fan girl on me, understand?” He asks raising an eyebrow toward Jorge.

“Fan girl? What do you mean fan girl… Wait?! Your guest is from Equestria aren’t they?! Please! Sir! You gotta let me meet them! Please!” He begs on his hands and knees.

“Ogre…” Koenma says in a calm and collected manner as he slowly turns his head to Jorge. “GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE NOW!!!” He yells as Jorge quickly jumps up and runs out the room whimpering. “I swear…” he gets cut off as a bright flash takes place before his desk and sees a full figured female white alicorn wearing gold jewelry and a white dress as her tri colored mane and tail move as if they were being blown in a nonexistent wind.

“Koenma, it’s so good to see you again.” She says as Koenma stands on his chair and bows to her.

“Princess Celestia, it’s a pleasure to meet you again. How’s your prized pupil faring?” He sits back down as Celestia sits down in the chair across from him.

“She’s doing well, Twilight is ever so eager to learn new things, I’m sure if she found out about spirit world, human world, and demon world, she’d jump at the chance to learn every little thing about them.” She giggled as Koenma gets down from his chair and serves her a cup of tea and then himself. He notices then Celestia’s face take a worried look as he goes back to his chair.

“Something’s bothering you; I’d guess it’s about your sister, isn’t it?” He takes a small sip of tea as Celestia does the same.

“Yes as you know I banished my sister to the moon with the elements of harmony about a thousand years ago, come this summer sun celebration she’ll be set free. I know that Twilight Sparkle will find a way to harness the elements of harmony to stop her, but I still have this feeling she might shirk off the idea of making friends.” She replied in a worried tone.

“And if she doesn’t make any friends, she’ll face your sister all alone.” Koenma stated.

“Exactly, that problem aside, why did you ask me to come visit you?" Celestia takes another sip of tea as Koenma looks at her carefully. He sighs a bit as he picks up the folder that was on his desk and holds it up.

“Before I get into why I asked you here, please have a look at this file.” Celestia ignites her horn and channels her magic to bring the folder over and starts reading through it. She sees a human’s picture inside, a young male with slicked back black hair, brown eyes, and light to medium tan skin. His body is lean, but muscular and is wearing a green school uniform with black shoes.

“Yusuke Urameshi, age eighteen, recently graduated from high school, father left him and his mother after he was born, mother took care of him till she started drinking becoming an alcoholic and soon died of liver failure when he was fifteen. He’s lived with a friend of the mother for the time being, working part time at a restaurant. He’s known for his short temper, impulsiveness, threatening nature, and his constant fighting. However it’s also noted that despite his short comings he has a joking and kind nature underneath.” She read out loud as she continued to read snippets of his life on earth, until she reached his obituary. “Is this right? His obituary states that he was supposed to die in his late eighties, but it’s been updated to…” her eyes widened at what she read. “…just yesterday. How did this happen?” She looks at Koenma as he finishes his cup of tea.

“In all honesty I wish I knew. This is the first time I’d ever seen something like this happen. He went from dying of natural causes to being hit by an automobile. Because of his unexpected death we have no place for him to go, and there’s no one back in human world that wants him back. This brings us to why I’ve asked you here.” Koenma looks at Celestia seriously as she looks up from the file at him. “I was thinking that perhaps you’d allow Urameshi to live in Equestria, as a living resident of course.” Celestia is surprised by Koenma’s request.

“I don’t know…you and I both know what humans are capable of, especially after viewing the chapter black tape.” She cringes from remembering the horrors that humans are capable off.

“Keep in mind that you have reviewed the other chapters, not just chapter black, humans are capable of many feats, which include compassion, happiness, and love. You can’t just condemn the human race just for their atrocities. Besides Yusuke isn’t like those humans on that tape, yes he can be a handful, but he has a good heart. I guarantee that if you let him live in your kingdom, he can be a valuable friend.” Koenma is leaning out of his seat as he tries to get his point across.

“Maybe…but I still think I need to think it over still.” Celestia continues to glance at the file in her hand. Koenma sighs as he holds the bridge of his nose between his thumb and pointer finger.

“I’m afraid there isn’t enough time to think about it, the coroner’s office that picked up Yusuke’s body has a time limit to hold bodies, once that time is up, the body will be cremated. He won’t have a body to go back to, and he’ll be nothing more than just a ghost.” Koenma added hoping that Celestia would agree sooner than later.

“You’re really putting me on the spot Koenma, how long till his body is gone?

“Law states that there must be a forty eight hour hold on a body, there’s only twenty four hours left on Urameshi’s.” He sighs as he leans back in his chair as an idea pops into his head. “Well…how’s about you talk to him, his spirit is in the next room, but don’t worry he looks the same as his photo and he can’t harm you.” She looks up at Koenma for a moment, but nods at the idea.

“All right, lead the way.” She places the folder on the desk as Koenma gets up from his chair and leads her down the hallway till they reach a door on the right.

“Let me talk to him first before I introduce you to him, he still has a tough time believing that you and a world of talking ponies exists.” He states as he cracks open the door and sticks his head into the room. “Yusuke?”

“What do you want pacifier breath?” A young male voice in a foul tone snapped at Koenma making Celestia flinch a bit.

“Please mind your manners Yusuke, I have the Princess of Equestria here and she’d like to talk to you.”

“Did she see my file already?”

“Yes she did.” Yusuke remains quiet as Celestia takes a quick peek into the room seeing the young human in his green school outfit facing a window as he sits crossed legged while floating in the air.

“It’s probably best if you just send her away, she’s not going to let me into her world now that she knows what I’m like.” His tone changed from foul to a defeated tone as he stretched his arms up and crossed them behind his head.

“But Yusuke…” Koenma started, but was interrupted by Yusuke.

“Story of my life, my dad bails on me and mom, my mom takes care of me, but becomes an alcoholic and drinks herself to death, I do my best in school and at my part time job, but do I get a ‘good job’ or ‘nice work’? Hell no! My high school teacher has it out for me, and on top of that, after graduating from that hell hole of a high school, I end up dying while saving a kid from getting hit from some stupid driver, which you tell me if I hadn’t jumped in, the driver would’ve missed him!” He huffs a bit as he finishes his rant as Celestia gently opens the door and slowly walks up to him.

“If you could do it all over again, saving that boy from being hit, with the knowledge that he wouldn’t be harmed, would you?” She asks as Yusuke turns around and looks at her in awe.

“Of course I would, I wouldn’t wish for anything bad to happen to the kid.” He replied as Celestia smiled at him. “Koenma wasn’t kidding; you really are a pony aren’t you?” He asked as he floats around her, getting a better look at her. “I will say one thing though you’re definitely well built like a human woman.”

“Show her some respect Yusuke! She is a princess!” Koenma snaps at him, as Celestia giggles a bit.

“It’s all right Koenma; it’s not every day I get oogled at.” She smirked as she looked back at Yusuke. “Yusuke Urameshi, if I allow you to live in my world, do you promise to be on your best behavior, to help those around you, to never raise your fists in anger, and to be a good friend to those who wish to be your friend?” She asked as the teen thought about it for a bit.

“But what if someone wants to start a fight with me, could I at least defend myself?” Koenma face palmed while Celestia thought about it for a moment.

“I’ll allow it only as a last resort, and if any of my little ponies needs protecting.

"All right, I accept." The teen smiled

“Excellent! I’ll have my spirit detective retrieve Yusuke’s body immediately.” Koenma leaves as both Celesita and the boy get better acquainted with each other.

---This is a line---

It’s a late afternoon at the coroner’s office; all of the employee’s are busy while only the dead occupy the morgue, however that changes when a portal opens inside the morgue and two beings step out. One being is tall thin man with slicked back hair, blue eyes, wearing a black long sleeve shirt and black jeans, while the other has long teal hair that’s parted in the middle, wearing a red undershirt, sky blue robes, and a yellow obi sash around the waist. The tall man checks all of the I.D. tags on the bodies and finally comes across Yusuke’s body.

“Here he is. Itsuki see if you can find Urameshi’s belongings.”

“I’m on it.” He replied as he closed his eyes in concentration. In the storage room, all was quiet until a few dozen arms lined with eyes popped out of the walls looking around; they would disappear into the walls and reappear in a different spot until one arm found a bin with the teens name on it. A couple more arms popped up grabbing the bin making it disappear into thin air. “I have his belongings, ready to go Shinobu?” He looked on as the tall man placed Urameshi’s corpse over his shoulder and nodded as they all exited the morgue through the portal they’d used earlier, after entering the portal closes leaving no trace of what happened.

---This is a line---

Back at Koenma’s palace Celestia, Yusuke, and Koenma himself were waiting patiently for the spirit detective in Koenma’s office; suddenly a portal opens up to everyone’s left as both Shinobu and Itsuki entered the office carrying the teens dead body and a bin with his belongings.

“Celestia, Yusuke I’d like to introduce Shinobu Sensui my spirit detective.”

“Your highness, Urameshi.” The tall man bows.

“And this is Itsuki, Shinobu’s assistant.” Koenma continues pointing to the young man with the long teal hair.

“A pleasure.” He bowed as well.

“It’s a pleasure to meet you both, I’m glad to see that both a human and demon can get along so well.” Celestia smiled as Yusuke looked at Celestia and back at the two men that just entered.

“Now that introductions are out of the way, let’s get to it shall we?” Koenma stated as he moved from behind his desk. Yusuke floats next to Celestia as she stands up while both Shinobu and Itsuki walk up to the princess and the young spirit. “Ready when you are your highness.” He said as he stepped up to the small group.

Celestia nods with a smile as her horn glows with magic making a sphere of gold surrounds the group and in a flash of bright light, they disappear to Celestia's home world Equestria.

Celestia had just finished raising the sun and was about to head back into the throne room when one of her guards arrives and tells her that there's a lot of shouting coming from the medical wing of the castle. She thinks about it for a moment, but smiles when she realizes who it is.

"It sounds like my special guest is awake, I better go see how he's doing." She excuses her guard as her horn lights up as she disappears in a flash of light, but then appears in front of a numbered door and opens it to see the Yusuke Urameshi alive and well, wearing only a pair of pajama bottoms while jumping up and down on his bed, while a unicorn stallion in a doctors coat and a unicorn mare in a white nurses outfit try to get him to calm down.

"Looks like someone is happy to be awake." She smiles as Yusuke stops jumping and looks at her for a moment, but then smiles at her.

"You bet your sweet ass I am!" he exclaims loudly as Celestia giggles with a blush.

"Sir! I know you've just recovered from being dead, but please show some respect to Princess Celestia." The Doctor replies as Yusuke hops down from the bed.

"It's quite all right Dr. Kill-patient, I'm sure anybody would be excited to get a second chance at life." She watches on as both the nurse and doctor examine Yusuke for any inconsistencies. "Is everything all right with Urameshi's check up?"

"Everything checks out fine...except for one thing." The doctor scratches his head as both Celestia and Yusuke look at him in concern.

"Don't leave me hanging Doc, what's wrong?" Yusuke felt a bit nervous wondering if the collision with the car back on human world screwed something up.

"While scanning his body with my magic, I've picked up a strange build up of energy, at first I thought it was magic, but that's not the case here. It's something different." He went on saying as Celestia thought about it for a moment.

"Spirit energy." Celestia said as everyone looks over at her.

"Spirit what?" Yusuke scratches his head in confusion.

"Spirit energy, Koenma told me that once you had woken up back in your body, your spirit energy would be awakened, that's what Dr. Kill-patient is picking up."

"That's good and all, but what exactly is spirit energy?" The teen then gets ups and stretches his body as Celestia steps into the room and sits on the side of his bed, excusing both the doctor and nurse to leave.

"From my talks with Koenma, all humans posses spiritual energy, and can be quite a force to be reckoned with if the human in question wields it properly."

"Interesting...wait a minute, if every human has it then why haven't I seen or heard anything about it?"

"Because not many humans know about spirit energy, plus the human needs to be spiritually aware in order to use it to its full potential. You remember Shinobu back at Koenma's palace?" She asked as Yusuke started looking for his clothes.

"Tall guy? Wearing all black? Slicked back black hair?" He asked as Celestia nod's. "Yeah, I do...say do you know what happened to my clothes? I can't find them anywhere." He leans up against a nearby dresser while crossing his arms.

"They're in the bathroom, they've been cleaned and repaired so they're good as new. Anyway's Shinobu is a unique case when it comes to spirit energy, when he was born his spirit awareness was already awakened, which is both a good and bad thing."

"How so? You'd think being born with power be a good thing."

"It can, but it can also be a bad thing, you see Shinobu was so spiritually strong, that his spirit had attracted demons that escaped into the human world, he would've most likely been devoured, however he discovered that he also had the ability to destroy demons as well. Having said that I can't imagine how scared he must of been, wondering why he was being chased by demons at such a young age." Yusuke couldn't help but feel sorry for the spirit detective, having to constantly watch his back, just then he gets a sinking feeling of dread.

"Celestia...am I going to have deal with demons hunting me down? Cause I'll tell you one thing, I will not go down without a fight." He punches his right hand into his left palm, while Celestia thinks about how to word out her answer.

"You won't have to worry about any demons coming after you for two good reasons. The first is that we have a special group of guards that are specially trained to hunt down any demons that might sneak into our world, if one does break into Equestria they'd automatically be tracked down, subdued, and locked away in Tartarus. As for the second reason...well...you're spirit is weaker and is no where near as strong as Shinobu's, so no demon would bother looking for you." She tries to hide her smirk as Yusuke had a look of annoyance on his face.

"Way to be blunt about it Tia." Yusuke replies as he steps into the bathroom and closes the bathroom door behind him.

"Please don't take too long Yusuke, we don't want to be late for breakfast." She semi yells through the door as the sound of running water starts up.

Shortly after a good shower plus putting on his clothes, both Yusuke and Celestia leave the infirmary with the teen's school bag and diploma in tow. They walk down a couple of great hallways as Yusuke looks around in wonder while Celestia explains the layout of the castle.

"And through out the castle each window depicts a major point in our lands history." Celestia states as Yusuke looks at the stained glass windows each depicting an event.

"Must make learning history a lot better than reading it in a boring old book." He looks at another stained glass window, while Celestia giggles at his comment.

"Be careful Yusuke, somepony might get angry from that kind of remark." She smirks, thinking about what her prized pupil would say.

"Well if they do, I won't loose any sleep over it." He says as they continue on until they reach a set of big read doors with a pair of guards standing to the sides.

"Now Yusuke, we're about to enter the dining hall and you're very likely to meet my niece and nephew, plus the captain of the guard, his sister who is my prized pupil and her assistant. Do you think you can be on your best behavior if I introduce you to them?" Yusuke thinks about it for a moment, but then look at her with a small smile.

"As long as they show me respect, I'll show them my respect, that seems fair right?" Celestia smiles at his response as the guards open the double doors allowing both Celestia and Yusuke to enter. As they walk in he couldn't help but be amazed at the size of the dining table, it was probably a good thirty feet long with chairs on both sides.

"Princess Celestia!" A female voice calls out as both Celestia and Yusuke look to see a young female unicorn around the same age as Yusuke. She has lavender fur, midnight blue mane and tail with pink and purple highlights, and violet eyes. She's wearing a blue blouse with a violet skirt that reached the bottom of her knees. She goes up to Celestia and hugs her, following close behind was a small baby dragon with purple scales and green spikes that went from the top of his head to the tip of his tail, from Yusuke's view he looks like he's twelve years old. The young drake was wearing a grey t-shirt and denim overalls. "It's good to see you back, how was your journey yesterday?" The lavender mare asked.

"It was quiet eventful Twilight, as a matter of fact I brought a special guest from my trip." She looks to her left as Yusuke steps up to Twilight and the little dragon causing their eyes to widen in surprise. "It's okay, you can introduce yourselves to each other." Yusuke glances at Celestia for a momment, then looks back at unicorn and dragon.

"Hi, my name is Yusuke Urameshi. " He sticks out his hand for a handshake, but for some reason the unicorn continues to just stare at him to a point where it starts to get on Urameshi's nerves. "Yeesh...don't be so eager to introduce yourself." His quip was able to snap the unicorn mare out of it, making her chuckle nervously.

"Heh, heh...sorry about that, my name is Twilight Sparkle, it's nice to meet you Mr. Urameshi." She shakes his hand, which makes Yusuke smile.

"Nice to meet you Twilight, and please just call me Yusuke." He said as they let go of each others hands, he then turns his attention to the young dragon and kneels down till they were about the same height. "And what's your name little guy?"

"My names Spike, it's nice to meet you Yus...uh...Yus...uh" Spike stumbles a bit at trying to remember how to pronounce Yusuke's name.

"It's Yusuke, but don't worry about getting it right." He sticks out his hand as Spike smiles and shakes it.

"Good morning everybody!" A female voice calls out causing Yusuke to stand up straight as both him and the others look toward the newcomer. It belonged to a female alicorn with pink fur, plum purple eyes, and her mane and tail made up of light yellow, dark pink, and grape purple while wearing a canary yellow sundress and a crown. Following her was a male unicorn with white fur, sky blue eyes, and royal blue mane and tail with both midnight blue and turquoise highlights. He wore a red military jacket with a blue sash and black slacks with gold trim.

"Cadence! BBBFF!" Twilight exclaims as she approaches the pair and proceeds to hug the unicorn and the turns to the alicorn and does the strangest greeting Yusuke has ever seen.

"Sunshine! Sunshine! Ladybugs Awake! Clap your hooves and do a little shake!" Both Twilight and the pink alicorn sang together as they did a little dance. Watching this made Yusuke want to laugh out loud, but kept himself in check only letting a small chuckle out.

"What did I just watch?" He asks no one in particular.

"That's Twilight's and Cadence's special greeting, Cadence came up with it when she would babysit Twilight when she was just a little filly." Celestia replied as the three ponies walks up to Celestia, Yusuke, and Spike.

"Good morning auntie, Spike, and...oh! Who's your friend here?" Cadence asks.

"Cadence, this is Yusuke Urameshi. I met him on my journey yesterday." Celestia the glances back at the human teen. "Yusuke, this is my niece, Princess Cadence and standing next to her is Shining Armor, my captain of the royal guard."

"It's nice to meet you both." Yusuke stuck out his hand as Cadence smiles and shakes his hand, they broke off their handshake and Yusuke then shakes hands with Shining.

"Like wise Mr. Urameshi." Shining replies after finishing shaking Yusuke's hand. "So how is it that you met Princess Celestia?"

"Well...it's a bit of a long and odd story, it all started when..." Before Yusuke could continue, a loud rumbling could be heard through out the dinning hall, causing everyone to look around.

"What the heck was that?!" Spike asks as Celestia starts to smirk as she looks at Yusuke who has an annoyed look on his face while wrapping his arms around his stomach.

"It seems that Yusuke is in need of a big breakfast." Celestia giggles as everybody looks at Yusuke.

"That was you?" Twilight asks which Yusuke nods slightly.

"It sounds like you hadn't eaten in a couple of days." Shining remarks as Yusuke thinks about it for a momment.

"Yeah, that sounds about right." Urameshi replied as he sat down on Celestia's left along with Twilight and Spike sitting closer to the sun princess, while both Cadence and Shining sat on Celestia's right.

"Before I forget, Yusuke? The cooks are special trained to meet your dietary needs so feel free to order anything you like." Celestia states as the human teen smiles as he thinks of what he wants. Just then two waiters came in and proceed to take everybody's order, then one of the waiter's come up to Yusuke.

"What would you like to order sir?" He asks as he holds a notepad in one hand and a pencil in another. Yusuke smirks as he wonders on how the ponies would react.

"Yeah, I would like to have a steak and egg breakfast. I'd like the steak medium-rare and two eggs over easy with a side of hash browns. I'd also like to have some wheat toast, buttered, a big glass of orange juice, and a cup of coffee." The waiter looks at him very carefully as he jots down his order and leaves with the other waiter. Yusuke then turns his attention to everybody at the table, but was surprised that they didn't look as shocked as he was expecting, as a matter of fact Twilight looked at him with fascination than fright.

"Amazing, so you're an omnivore? Is everyone else an omnivore from where you're from?" She asks.

"Yeah, although there are individuals who are vegetarian or go to the extreme and become vegan." Yusuke said as Twilight pulls out a piece of parchment and a quill and begins to write.

"Vegan? What's a Vegan? Spike asks looking over at Yusuke.

"Well basically it's a person that doesn't eat anything that comes from an animal, which includes milk and eggs." He replied as Spike nods and sits back in his chair. "Say how come you all aren't surprised or at least shocked that I'm having meat?" He asks glancing at everyone, Cadence spoke up to answer his question.

"Believe it or not there are other beings residing in Equestria that are carnivore's, so you don't need to worry about being the only one here eating meat." Cadence said in a matter of fact tone, leaving Yusuke surprised.

"So you were going to tell us how you met Celestia on her journey?" Shining asks as Yusuke looks over at him.

"Huh? Oh yeah! You see it all happened two days ago when..." Yusuke found himself being interupted again when one of the great doors leading to the dining room was opened. Walking in was a male unicorn with white fur, blonde mane and tail, and blues eyes, while wearing an all white custom made suit.

"Sorry for being late auntie, the servants had the audacity to bring in my clothes without being properly steamed pressed." He said as he came up to the dining room table and was about to sit down next to Shining Armor until he spotted Yusuke across from his chair. "Who or what are you?" He asked eyeing Yusuke with a look of repulsiveness.

"Be nice Blueblood, this is Yusuke Urameshi, I met him on my journey yesterday. Yusuke, this is my nephew, Prince Blueblood." Both Yusuke and Blueblood look at each other carefully as Blueblood takes his seat. Just then the wait staff arrives and brings in everyone's food.

"Your steak and egg breakfast sir." A waiter said as he presents Urameshi his order which looks to be bigger than everyone else's.

"Ugh! You eat meat?! Oh how disgusting!" Blueblood exclaimed as Yusuke looked up at him in annoyance.

"If you don't like what I'm eating, then just look at your own damn plate." Urameshi snaps at the prince, both Shining, Twilight, and Spike look at him with shock while Cadence and Celestia seem to smile at how Yusuke talked back to Blueblood.

"Don't tell me what to do, you mongrel." Blueblood spat at Yusuke. Celestia was about to say something, but stopped when she noticed Yusuke smirk at Blueblood. She grew a little worried on what he had planned until he saw him cutting into his steak and start chewing a piece without closing his mouth. Having seen Yusuke chew on a piece of medium rare meat causes Blueblood to actually turn green and make a run for the closest restroom. After swallowing his steak piece he was expecting to be chewed out by Celestia, but instead heard both her and Cadence laughing.

"That was by far the most funniest thing I've ever seen." Celestia says as she calms down a bit while wipping a tear from her eye.

"You mean you're not mad at me?" Urameshi asks in surprise.

"Of course not, believe it or not there are times that Blueblood gets on my nerves as well, and before you ask Blueblood isn't a blood relative." She replied as she starts eating her breakfast, while Yusuke goes back to eating his. About forty minutes later everyone had finished eating as the wait staff re-entered the dining hall to pick up the dishes and silverware. Just as the last of the wait staff left, Blueblood returned looking a bit exhausted and dishevelled. He walks back to his seat next to Shining Armor and sits back down as he glares at Urameshi and is about to tell him off when a solar pegasus guard enters the dining hall.

"Your majesty." He announces as he approaches Celestia and bows before her.

"Steel Blade, what brings you here?"

"Your majesty, a visitor has arrived to see a Yusuke Urameshi."

"Me? Who's asking for me?" Yusuke asks as Steel Blade looks at him.

"She's claiming to have met you before sir, she says her name is Botan."

"Botan? I wonder what she wants." He asks himself before looking back at the guard. "You can send her in." The guard nods as he leaves the dinning hall.

"So who's Botan? Is she a friend of yours?" Twilight asks.

"I wouldn't say friend, she's just someone I met recently." He replied.

"Yusuke!" A female voice shouts as everyone turns around surprised to see not only a human, but a female human. She stands tall with blue hair done up in a pony tail with long bangs, light plum purple colored eyes, and light peach skin. She wears a pink kimono with a white obi sash with white socks and sandals on her feet. "It's so good to see you again, I'm trusting that you're staying out of trouble?" She asks as she walks up to Urameshi.

"Yeah...of course I am..." He says trailing off as he takes a quick glance at Blueblood then back at Botan. "Anyways let me introduce you to everyone. That's Princess Cadence, next to her is Shining Armor and next to him is Prince Blueballs...I mean Prince Blueblood. At the end of the table is Princess Celestia, and that's her star pupil, Twilight Sparkle, and the little guy here is Twilight's assistant, Spike." Botan couldn't help but smile at Spike as she kneeled down to look at him at eye level.

"Awww...aren't you the cutest little dragon ever." She coo'd as she reaches to gently pinch his blushing cheek, causing him to chuckle in an embarrassed tone. She eventually lets go and stands straight up and proceeds to bow to Celestia. "You're highness, it's always a pleasure seeing you again."

"Likewise Botan." She replies with a smile

"You both know each other?" Twilight asks as she glances back and fourth a few time between Celestia and Botan.

"Yes we do, we've met each other a very long time ago and occasionally see each other on special arrangements." Botan says as she looks at Yusuke. "So how does it feel to be back amongst the living Yusuke?" She asks as everyone except Celestia raises an eyebrow.

"Great, now that don't have to be a ghost anymore." Yusuke's remark made everyone except for the sun princess very confused.

"You were a ghost? How could you be ghost? You'd have to be dead to be ghost." Spike says with a shocked tone.

"Spike, there's no such thing as ghosts, plus Yusuke is sitting right here. He's not dead, and it'd be impossible to bring the dead back to life." Twilight states in a matter of fact tone.

"Yusuke, have you told everyone how you arrived here?" Botan eyes Urameshi carefully as he looks back at her.

"I've been trying to, but kept getting interrupted every time." He sighs as he looks at everyone with a serious look on his face. "About two days ago back in my world...I was officially declared dead."

"About two days ago, back in my world...I was officially declared dead." As soon as Yusuke Urameshi uttered that sentence, he could feel everyone's eyes on him.

"You're kidding right? There's no possible way for a being to come back from the dead. Therefore you must be joking." Twilight stated matter of fact tone. However Yusuke still held an un-amused look on his face.

"Twiley, I don't think he's kidding, did you really die two days ago?" Shining asks as he looks at Urameshi.

"I did, and Botan can vouch for me as well." Yusuke looks at Botan briefly before looking back at everyone at the table.

"How is it that you came to know Urameshi? Let alone know about his passing, Botan?" Cadence asks.

"Well to make a long story short, I was there to escort Yusuke's spirit to spirit world." She replies, leaving everyone wondering what was she talking about.

"Botan's basically a grim reaper." Yusuke says as everyone but Celestia looks on at Botan with wide eyes.

"B-But! She too beautiful to be a grim reaper!" Spike exclaims causing everyone to look at him. "What? It's true."

"Awww...what a cute thing to say." Botan smiles as she gently pats Spike's head, making him blush. She stops patting him as she looks back at everyone. "But Yusuke is right, I am a grim reaper. Or you can refer to me as guide of the river styx."

"So tell me, if this mongrel did indeed die, then why isn't he burning in the afterlife?" Blueblood asks, causing Celestia to glare at him, while Yusike gives him the stink eye.

"Well believe it or not, his sudden death caught us by surprise."

"Really? So an individual's death happens on a schedule then?" Twilight asks, holding a quill and parchment in her hands.

"In a way, yes. You see when a human like Yusuke, or pony, or dragon like yourselves is born, a worker in spirit world makes a file on the newborn. Eye color, hair color, blood type, and gender, plus a photograph to properly identify the individual. As the individual gets older their file gets updated, listing their talents, habits, and most importantly, what good or bad things they've done in their lives." Twilight quickly writes down each and every word Botan says.

"That's amazing! But how do you determine when someone's time is up?"

"Well, we determine one's death by evaluating the individuals lifestyle, plus their decisions in life and calculate their time of death. And before you ask, no we have no way of determining on how someone dies, and our evaluations are one hundred percent correct, however Yusuke is the only exception. Originally he was going to pass away in his late eighties, but ended up dying two days ago." Botan glances at the human teen as he sighs a bit.

"Hey Yusuke," Spike looks at the him getting his full attention. "How did you die?"

"Spike! You shouldn't be asking him something like that, it must be very troubling having to retell something like that." Twilight scolded.

"Don't sweat it Twilight, it's okay." Yusuke assure's her as he starts remembering that day. "It was noon at the time, I had just graduated from high school and I was feeling pretty good about myself, not only did I prove my teacher wrong about me, but I also knocked him on his ass right before I left with my diploma."

"You struck your teacher?! Why would you do such a thing?!" Twilight asks in shock.

"Believe me when I say this, if you had Mr. Iwamoto as your teacher, you'd want to kick his ass too."

"Me?! Physically attack a teacher?! Never!!"

"Trust me you would. Anyways, I was heading back home, thinking about what I should do to celebrate when I happen to notice a soccer ball rolling up to me. When I picked it up, a little kid came running up to me." He glances at Spike for a moment. "He's probably the same age as you are Spike. I had scolded him for playing too close to a busy street and that he could get seriously hurt. I guess my tone was a bit too harsh, on account he looked afraid of me, so I did the one thing that I'd rarely ever do."

"And that was?" Cadence asks.

"Make a complete fool out of myself." Yusuke chuckles a bit as he thinks back to that moment. "I started making goofy faces, making weird noises, and finally using the kid's soccer ball as a make shift hunchback, making myself look more ridiculous, hoping around like a goofball." Everyone except for Blueblood was chuckling at the thought of Urameshi acting in such a way.

"And the little one?" Cadence grins.

"He was laughing a whole lot, even though I was being gawked at by passers by. After the kid calmed down, I handed him his ball, and told him not to play near the street. I started walking away when I heard the one thing that made me stop in my tracks."

"And what was that?" Twilight asks.

"I heard the kid's soccer ball bounce and roll again, only this time it rolled in the middle of the street. Sure enough, the kid was walking right after it, unaware a speeding car was heading right towards him."

"A car?"

"You have carriages here, right?" Yusuke asks as Twilight nods. "Basically a car is like a carriage, but made entirely out of metal and can move twice as fast, and one them was speeding so fast it was going to hit the kid in the road. I remember shouting at him to get out of the way, but he didn't seem to notice and the car wasn't slowing down. So I made a mad dash toward the kid, pushing him out of the way, and the last thing I remember was getting hit hard, the sound of broken glass, and screeching tires. When I came to, I found myself floating in the air and as I looked down, there was a crowd of people gathered around my body. I still hadn't really realized I was dead yet till paramedics came by and took my body, I tried to stop them, but sure enough my hand phased through one of them as they took my body away. After floating for a while, Botan showed up to escort me to spirit world, but we made a quick stop at the hospital to check on the kid."

"How was he?" Cadence asks.

"He was just fine, just a few scratches and bruises, after that I escorted Yusuke to spirit world to see Lord Koenma." Botan replies.

"Who's Lord Koenma? He must be important to be a lord." Twilight asks.

"He is, he's the one that decides who ascends to Heaven and who goes to Hell, he's a very wise being."

"For a toddler." Yusuke says which makes Celestia chuckle for a bit.

"Yusuke! Please show Koenma some respect." Botan snaps at him.

"If he wants some respect, then he should look his age, not some four or five year old."

"He only looks like that to conserve energy."

"And I suppose sucking a pacifier conserves energy to huh?" Yusuke snaps, leaving everyone, but Celestia imaging a toddler with a pacifier judging spirits.

"So tell me Botan, what brings you here other than checking up on Urameshi?" Celestia asks.

"Well, Koenma believes it's time for Yusuke to earn his keep..." Botan replies as she pulls out an envelope from her sleeve and hands it to Yusuke. "...in this envelope is a set of instructions to arm your spirit energy, plus a spirit tool for an emergency." Everyone's attention was drawn toward the letter then at Urameshi.

"Arm his spirit energy?" Shining sounded concerned when hearing this new information.

"Yeah, apparently humans have the ability to wield a power called spirit energy, only a few of them are able to do so on account of them being spiritually aware." Yusuke explains.

"So you're a spiritually aware human then?" Twilight asks.

"Apparently so, although I wasn't when I was back home, I'm guessing I only became spiritually aware when I was brought back from the dead." He replied as he opened the later taking out the instructions. "The spirit gun...huh...that's a catchy name." He says as he looks in the envelope again and pulls out the spirit tool. "A ring? This is the tool to use in an emergency? A ring?"

"Concentration ring to be exact, you put it on your pointer finger and it'll double the output of your spirit energy. However the only draw back is it'll leave you drained. One other thing Koenma wanted me to tell you, with the strength of your spirit as it is, you'll on be able to fire off two shots at the most." Botan explains.

"So basically I need to make my shots count and to only use the spirit gun and concentration ring if I don't have any other options."

"Bingo! In the meantime, Koenma will be looking for a teacher to help strengthen your spirit energy. Before I go, you should know that both your legal guardian and the little boy's mother made a little shrine for you. It's at the site where you saved the little boy's life."

"That's nice, I hope no one goes messing with it."

"Actually your old teacher, Iwamoto, thought he'd get back at you by trashing your shrine, but your old rival put a beat down on him before Iwamoto could start anything." Botan snaps her fingers as an oar appears out of thin air, she holds it with one hand as she sits on it side saddle style. The oar floats a few feet in the air holding her. This surprises everyone except for Yusuke and Celestia. "I'd better be off, I've got spirits to escort to spirit world, but I'll be sure to check up on you from time to time."

"Fine, see you when I see you." Yusuke replies.

"Bye Botan." Twilight waves.

"Farewell." Celestia says.

"Have a safe journey." Cadence waves.

"Take care." Shining says.

Spike gets up from his seat and goes up to Botan to give her a hug. "Bye Botan, I hope you come back and visit soon."

"Don't worry Spike, I will." Botan said softly as she hugs him, then lets him go. "Take care everyone." She waves as she zooms out of the banquet hall through an open window.

"Shining Armor, do you think you could help Yusuke out with his Spirit gun?" Celestia asks.

"Of course your highness, I'll take him over to the unicorn firing range right away." Shining takes his napkin and wipes his mouth and hands as he stands up.

"Twilight, I would like both you and Spike to accompany Yusuke as well. Once he's done, I want you to teach him our customs so that way he'll be able to get along with other ponies."

"You can count on me Princess Celestia." Twilight gets up as well as Spike, while Yusuke sighs a bit and stands up.

"All right, I'll be seeing you later Tia." Yusuke says as Twilight looks shocked at him.

"Yusuke, don't you think it's a bit rude to address the princess like that?" She asks.

"Tia doesn't have any problem with me calling her Tia, do you Tia?" He looks over at Princess Celestia as she giggles a bit.

"No, not at all Yusuke." She smiles as Twilight's ear twitched a bit while Yusuke laughed.

"All right you two, let's get going, I'm actually curious to see Yusuke's spirit gun in action." Shining opens the door at the other end of the banquet hall and leads Urameshi, Twilight, and Spike out.

"Auntie? Are you sure it's wise to let that barbarian wield a power that we don't know anything about?" Blueblood asks.

"Blueblood, I'm very sure he can be trusted. Right now I'm giving him the one thing that nobody in his world has given him."

"And what pray tell is that?"

"A chance to prove himself." She stands up as Cadence gets up as well. "Come along Cadence, we have a long day of day court ahead of us."

"Coming auntie." Cadence replies.

"Have a pleasant day Blueblood." Celestia leaves with Cadence as Blueblood sits in his chair and waits for his breakfast.

---This is a line---

Back in the human, world a very tall young man with red/orange punk style hair, wearing a bright blue school uniform walks down a sidewalk, grumbling to himself.

"Damn coward. Too afraid to face me, so you end up getting yourself killed." He continues to walk until he stops in front of a little memorial on the side of the street. It has various flowers and a picture of a young man with slicked back black hair and brown eyes. He grits his teeth as he shuts eyes hard, using the back of his hand to wipe his eyes.

He starts walking down the street again, heading for the bad part of town looking for trouble when suddenly he hears a male voice yell out in pain fallowed by the sound of dozens of voices wailing out in agony. He quickly runs down the street and spots a middle aged man with long grey hair, an eye patch over his left eye and wearing samurai clothing while using a bokken sword to help keep him up right. As the young man runs up to him, he notices that this samurai was banged up pretty bad and was having a tough time standing on his own two feet.

"Hey, what the hell happened to you?" He ask while the samurai looks up at him.

"Listen to me, it's not safe here, you need to get out of here." The samurai winces in pain as he collapses onto the ground. The young man moves up to him quickly.

"Not safe? Look old man, I'm one of the toughest guys on the street. And there's nothing I can't...handle...?" He starts trailing off as he looks down the alley way, he starts to tremble a bit as the one eye'd samurai takes notice of the young man's reaction.

"You can sense it can you? Two dark presence with malicious intent, right?"

"Yeah...what the hell is that? Is it even human?"

"No, they're not, they'll look human, but in reality they're actually demons. Very dangerous and powerful ones. From what I could tell, they came here to test out some new items they plan on using for some tournament in the future. If they sense that you have a strong spirit, they might see you as a threat and kill you on the spot." The samurai lifts up his bokken sword up and hands it over to the teen. "You'll need this to help defend yourself.

"A big wooden stick?" He asks taking the wooden sword.

"This is no ordinary wooden stick. This is a bokken sword, it was made from an ancient tree and rinsed in a sacred stream. By doing this, this bokken is able to channel the users spirit energy into it, thus making it a powerful weapon against any demon. Use this to defend yourself." The older man hands the young man the wooden sword when suddenly they hear a shout.

"CHORUS OF A THOUSAND SKULLS!!!"

Both men looked forward and saw ghostly skulls fly through the air before shooting towards them. The samurai used the last of his strength to push the young man out of the way. As the young man fell backwards, the one-eyed samurai let out one last yell as the ghostly skulls exploded on impact. The young man leans up and is freaked out to see the older man's body slumped over and smoldering with smoke, it was clear that he was dead.

"I must say, your new weapon works quite well, wouldn't you agree Shishi Wakamaru?" A older voice asked as the young man looks back down the ally way to see an old man, much older than the samurai from earlier, with medium length grey hair, mustache, and fuzzy eyebrows. His face had a big nose and long pointed ears as he wore orange pants and vest, green shirt, sandals and a black beanie.

"Yes, I'm quite amazed at what my Banshee Shriek can really do against an opponent." Said a much younger voice belonging to a young man at his age with dark purple eyes and long blue/purple hair tied into a pony tail with bangs and a widows peak. He wore a samurai outfit just like the man he met before, except he was wielding a katana sword. However the sword's handle looked longer than a normal sword and it bared a distorted head that looked to be made of flesh. After taking notice of his work, he happened to glance over at the young man holding the bokudon sword.

"Who the hell are you?" Shishi asks as the young man stands up with both hands on the bokken's handle, getting ready to start a fight.

"The name's Kazuma Kuwabara, the worst punk of Sarayasaki High School." He held the wooden sword up expecting a fight, but what he got was...

"A high school student? What a joke!" Shishi laughed as Kuwabara looked at him like he just dropped kicked his cat.

"Listen you boy band wannabe! I am one of the toughest guys on these streets, no one has ever beaten mean in a fight, and if you think you can beat me, you got another thing coming!" Kuwabara yelled as the bokken glowed a bit with yellow spirit energy.

"What do you think Onji? Is he worth the time and energy?" Shishi asks as he looks at the old man. The senior looked over Kuwabara carefully and gave his input.

"Well he does have unique spirit energy I'll give him that much, but he's not on the same level as you are, it'd be a waste of time fighting him." Onji replied as Kuwabara looked more pissed off than he was before. Then suddenly the old man had an idea. "Say, why don't you test out the other item I gave you?" Shishi thinks about it for a second but smirks as he reaches behind his back and pulls out a clear cloak and holds it around him.

"Come at me if you're as tough as you claim to be." Shishi mocks as Kuwabara grits his teeth and charges with a battle cry, just as he got close enough Shishi wraps the cloak around Kazuma and suddenly the young man disappears into thin air. "It worked, it actually made my opponent vanish."

"Just as I said it would, this item will send any adversary to any of the four worlds, fate will decide on what happens to him. By the way what are you going to call your second item?"

"I'll call it my CAPE OF NO RETURN!" Shishi wraps the cape behind him as both him and Onji walk off and disappear into the crowded streets, unaware that they will run into Kuwabara again sometime in the future.

Back on pony world, Shining Armor leads Yusuke, Twilight, and Spike to the royal guard firing range. They all remind quiet as they roamed through the hallways of the castle, until Twilight spoke up.

"So Yusuke, does your spirit energy have any sort of sensations?"

"No, I honestly don't feel anything what-so-ever."

"Really? So it's not at all like magic then." Twilight quickly writes on piece of parchment with a quill.

"So Yusuke, tell us a little about yourself." Shining suggests as Yusuke thinks for a moment.

"Well, I'm an only child, and I was from Kaiden, Japan." He pauses for a moment to think a bit. "I was a part time cook and baker when I wasn't in high school."

"Oh really? How'd you like working in the food industry?" Twilight asks

"It was interesting, learned a lot, and made a lot of food and money, so it wasn't all bad."

"Yusuke? Botan mentioned you had a rival back on your world, who were they?" Spike asks.

"Heh, she's talking about Kazuma Kuwabara." Yusuke said.

"Kazuma Kuwabara? I'm sorry, but his name sounds way too funny." Spike laughed while Yusuke smirked.

"Spike, you know you shouldn't laugh at other's." Twilight scolded.

"So Kazuma, what's he like?" Shining asks.

"He's a loud mouth and had a habit of starting fights with me." Yusuke said nonchalantly, while Twilight, Spike, and Shining looked at him in shock.

"He started fights with you? Why?" Twilight asks.

"Eh, probably had something to prove, each time he'd show up to fight me, and each time it ended with him on the ground." Urameshi replies.

"Really? You've never lost a fight to him?" Shining asks.

"Not to him or anyone else that tried to fight me." Yusuke replied with a bit of pride in his voice.

"Well, we're here." Shining leads them to an open field firing range.

"So, what do you use on the firing range? Bows and arrows, or crossbows?" Yusuke asks.

"Well, both pegasi and earth pony's use bows and arrows, plus crossbows. Unicorn's on the other hand use magic, like so." Shining steps up to the firing point and sticks his arm out forward with his palm open. His horn ignites causing a sphere of magic to appear in his palm. Then with a slight push, the sphere launches forward and hits the target with great force.

"Well, that was impressive." Yusuke says in awe.

"Thanks, now let's have a look at your spirit gun instructions." Shining steps up to Yusuke as the teen hands him the note. Shining reads the note for a few minutes and then puts the note in his pocket. "All right step up to the firing line and extend your right arm out." Shining instructed as Urameshi does so. "Now extend your pointer finger while curling your other three."

"What about my thumb?" Yusuke asks as Shining goes back to the instructions.

"Leave the thumb straight up. Now here's the tricky part, you have to gather as much of your spirit energy into your pointer finger." Shining looks over at Urameshi as the teen concentrates. Just then blue energy starts swirling at Yusuke's finger until his finger tip glows with bright blue energy. Meanwhile Twilight was quickly writing while Spike watched in awe. "Now you aim and shoot, use your mind to pull the trigger." Shining instructed as Yusuke aims and with a bit of concentration fires his spirit gun. The bullet of spirit energy soars across the firing range and hits its mark.

"Wow! That was so cool!." Spike exclaimed.

"Amazing! It looks as if your spirit energy is on the same level as magic. I'm going to need to take some tests to make sure." Twilight says excitedly.

"Eh perhaps another time." Yusuke replied with a bit of hesitation in his voice.

"Yusuke, you still have that concentration ring on you?" Shining asks as Yusuke pulls the ring out of his pocket.

"Yeah, why do you ask?"

"I think it would be a good idea to test the ring, so that you're better prepared." Shining suggests as Yusuke slips on the concentration ring on his right index finger and takes aim at the target. He starts gathering his spirit energy again only this time more energy is added making this shot look bigger than before. Yusuke holds the shot for a little bit until he fires, the shot soars down the range until it collides with the target causing an explosion. Shining quickly raises his shield covering himself, Yusuke, Twilight, and Spike. Once everything settles down Shining lowers his shield and looks toward the target.

"Woah! You blew away half the target!" Spike exclaimed. Sure enough the top half of Yusuke's target was blown away, the only thing left was the bottom half with a blackened smoldering top. Suddenly Yusuke grunts as he stumbles backwards and falls on his ass. Twilight, Spike, and Shining quickly move over toward Urameshi.

"Are you all right?" Twilight asks in a concerned tone.

"Yeah, I'm all right, just feeling exhausted at the moment." Yusuke panted. Just then a bright flash appeared before them and died down to reveal both princess Celestia and princess Cadence.

"What just happened out here? We both heard a huge explosion from the other side of the castle." Celestia says as she looks around and notices the destroyed target.

"Yeah...that was me." Urameshi panted as Cadence moved up to him and did a quick scan with her magic.

"It's my fault your majesty, I asked Yusuke to test out his concentration ring." Shining stated as Yusuke looks over at him in surprise.

"So this is what happens when Yusuke uses his spirit gun with his concentration ring? It's quite the destructive force to say the least." Celestia looks at the destroyed target as she looks back at Urameshi.

"Looks like you're all right, although your spirit energy has decreased a lot from this morning." Cadence says as she stops using her magic on Yusuke.

"Looks like Botan wasn't kidding about being drained after using the ring she gave me." Yusuke chuckled. He notices Celestia walk up to him and kneel right next to him.

"Yusuke, I know Botan gave you that ring for just such an emergency, and I know I have no right to ask this of you but..."

"You don't want me to use the concentration ring."

"Only if it's a life or death situation, does that seem reasonable to you?"

"Yeah, that's no problem." Yusuke replied as he looked back at his handy work before looking back at Celestia who was smiling.

"Thank you for understanding Yusuke. So now that you know how to wield your spirit energy, you can..." Celestia pauses as she starts sensing something.

"Tia?" Yusuke asks as Celestia stands up and looks around before looking toward the sky. Suddenly crackles of red energy start appearing in the air as Celestia ignites her horn and generates a shield around everyone. As the crackling energy intensifies a black hole opens up as a young man with red/orange hair, wearing an all blue school uniform falls out, flailing and screaming while holding a wooden sword. He falls for quite sometime until he smacks hard against Celestia's shield, causing his face to smoosh up against it. Gravity starts taking effect as he starts sliding down the shield making a squeaking noise until he completely slides off and onto the ground. Celestia quickly glances up to see the black hole disappear then looks back at the newcomer.

"Is that another human?" Twilight asks.

"It is, but the better questions are, what brought him here, and whether or not he is friendly or not." Celestia says watching the new arrival carefully.

"Tia, let me go investigate, if worse comes to worse, I'll knock him out." Yusuke gets up and moves toward Celestia's shield.

"Please, be careful Yusuke." Celestia makes an opening in her shield as Yusuke slowly moves up to the unconscious teen and takes a good look at him.

"No way! It's Kuwabara!" Yusuke shouts while both Twilight, Spike and Shining armor look on in surprise.

"Is it really him?" Spike asks.

"Yeah, no doubt about, I know his ugly mug anywhere." Yusuke replies.

"Who's Kuwabara?" Celestia asks.

"Kuwabara is the rival Botan mentioned earlier." Twilight replies as Celestia lowers her sheild.

"That's him?" Celestia asks as everyone steps up to the two humans as Cadence uses her magic to scan Kuwabara.

"He's not injured, but I am picking up some energy build up inside him, I'd say it's the same as Yusuke's spirit energy." Cadence says as she stop scanning Kuwabara with her magic.

"So, how do we get him up?" Spike asks as he looks at Kuwabara, but then notices the bokken sword that he dropped. He walks over to it a picks it up. "And what in the world is this thing?"

"It's a bokken sword." Yusuke replied as Twilight quickly uses her magic to levitate the wooden swors out of Spike grasp.

"Spike you need to be more careful, you could've hurt yourself." Twilight said.

"Nah, a bokken sword is harmless, it's just made out of wood." Yusuke replied as Twilight stopped using her magic and held the wooden sword by the handle. "But last time I checked he wasn't into sword play."

"Yusuke, do you think you could wake him? I'd really like to know how he got here." Celestia asks.

"All right, just stand back, he might thrash out at what I'm about to do." Yusuke warns as everyone steps away from the two humans. Urameshi takes a deep breath in and shouts out loud. "MEGALICA IS A STUPID POP BAND!"

In an instant Kuwabara's eyes shot open as he sat up quickly and punched Yusuke in the face, causing Urameshi land on his back hard.

SHUT THE HELL UP URAMESHI! YOU WOULDN'T KNOW GOOD MUSIC IF IT CAME UP AND KICKED YOUR FACE IN! Kuwambara shouted out of habit before realizing who he had punched. "Urameshi? Is that really you?!" Kuwabara asks.

"Damn, it feels like it's been forever since I felt one of your weak ass punches." Yusuke chuckles.

"It is you! But, if you're here, then that means...GAH!!! I must be dead to!!!" Kuwabara shouts.

"Don't be stupid! You're alive and so am I!"

"But how?"

"When I died there was no place for me to go in the afterlife, so there was an arrangement for me to come here on the condition that I'd be brought back to life."

"I see...wait, you said here, where's here?"

"You are standing on Canterlot castle grounds, in the city of Canterlot which is the capital of Equestria." Celestia says as she approaches both Urameshi and Kuwabara. "I'm Princess Celestia, the Co...I mean the ruler of Equestria." Kuwabara stares at her for a moment before looking over to Yusuke and whispers to him.

"Uh Urameshi, where exactly are we? We didn't wind up at one of those conventions where everyone dresses up in those weird suits did we?" Kuwabara asks as Celestia raises an eyebrow.

"No we didn't. We're in a world that's inhabited by anthro ponies that can use magic." Yusuke replied as the others moved up closer to the humans.

"And fly, there are ponies that can fly as well." Twilight says.

"Let me introduce you to everyone. This is Celestia, Cadence, Shining Armor, Twilight Sparkle, and Spike." Yusuke says as Kuwabara looks at each and everyone of them, but then notices Spike not being a pony so he kneels down and looks at him.

"Hey, what exactly are you little guy?" Kuwabara asks.

"I'm a dragon, although I'm a baby dragon." Spike replies.

"Really? Can I see your fire breath?" Kuwabara asks as Spike nods and turns his head away from him and the others and lets out a plume of green flames. "Way cool." Kuwabara says causing Spike to smile.

"Kuwabara? I need to know, how did you get here, and why was the portal you came through powered by demon energy?" Celestia asks as Kuwabara stands up and tells them everything from meeting the one-eyed samurai to him coming through the portal and into Equestria.

"I see...this sounds very troubling indeed, I'll need to contact Lord Koenma right away, and perhaps have him help you get back home. I'm sure your family is worried about you." Celestia says, but to her surprise, sees Kuwabara's expression sadden as he looks away from everyone.

"Tia, Kuwabara's parents died while on vacation, he had an older sister, but she disappeared one day and there hasn't been any clues to what happened to her." Yusuke whispers to Celestia as she looks at Kuwabara with sadness. She thinks for a moment as she steps up to him and puts a hand on his shoulder.

"Kuwabara, if you like, I'll allow you to stay here in Equestria, on the condition that you bring no harm onto my subjects." Celestia says as Kuwabara looks at her in surprise.

"But what if I'm in a situation where I'll need to fight my way out?" Kazuma asks.

"That I'll allow, plus if any of my subjects needs protecting." Celestia replies.

"All right, you got a deal." Kuwabara says as he sticks out his hand for and hand shake. Celestia smiles as she sticks out her hand and shakes Kuwabara's.

"Now that we got that out of the way why don't you join Yusuke, Twilight, and Spike. Twilight will help both you and Yusuke learn Equestria's custom's and history. Me and Cadence have to return to day court, we will see you all later." Celestia says as both her and Cadence teleport away.

"I've gotta get back to my duties as well, don't give my sister a hard time and make sure she doesn't stay coop'd up in her room." Shining asks as he goes over to her sister and hugs her. "Take care Twiley, I'll see you later at dinner." He says as he let's go of her and heads off the guards barracks.

"If you both will fallow me, we can get started on your lesson's." Twilight said as both her and Spike lead both Yusuke and Kuwabara to her library. As they walked, both Yusuke and Kuwabara couldn't help but notice all the sights of the castle grounds, namely the gardens, castle towers, and the guards. As they walked they reach a fenced area with a gate, just then Twilight uses her magic to open the gate and leads them on through. The scenery changes a bit as they were surrounded by school buildings and unicorn's dressed up in student uniforms.

"Hey Twilight, what's with the change of scenery?" Yusuke asks.

"This part of the castle grounds is know as 'Celestia's School for gifted Unicorn's', this is one of the best school's there is in Canterlot."

"It looks expensive, like it would cost me an arm and a leg to go here." Kuwabara replied causing Spike smirk.

"There you are Twilight!" A female voice called out as a unicorn mare, wearing a school uniform walks up to Twilight and Spike. She has sky blue fur, cobalt blue eyes, and azure blue mane and tail with slate blue highlights. "We've been looking all over for you." She says as four other unicorn mares in school uniforms approaches them. One mare has ivory white fur, turquoise eyes and taffy pink mane and tail. The third mare has lemon yellow fur with magenta eyes and ocean blue mane and tail. The fourth has mint green fur with gold yellow eyes and pistachio green mane and tail with white highlights. And the last mare with glasses has cream white fur, violet eyes, and red mane and tail with heather and violet highlights.

"Hi girls, did you need something?" Twilight asks.

"Well, the five of us are going to Doughnut Joes later on for a snack, do you want to come? Spike is more than welcome to..." She trails off as her and the other mares take notice of both Yusuke and Kuwabara. "Oh! I'm so sorry I didn't notice your new friends here."

"Girls this is Yusuke Urameashi and Kazuma Kuwabara. Guys these are my friends Minuette, Twinkleshine, Lemon Hearts, Lyra Heartstrings, and Moondancer." Twilight says.

"Nice to meet you." Yusuke waves.

"Yeah, like wise." Kuwabara replies.

"It's nice to meet you both." Minuette says as she shakes both Yusuke's and Kuwabara's hands. "You two are more than welcome to join us for donuts if you like."

"I could go for something sweet." Yusuke says.

"Yeah, me to." Kuwabara replies.

"I don't know, I was hoping to learn about your world after I teach you about ours." Twilight says as she looks at both Yusuke and Kuwabara.

"What time are you all planning to go?" Kuwabara asks.

"We were thinking at around three o'clock." Lemon Hearts replies.

"That should give us plenty of time to learn about Equestria and teach you about our world, right Twilight?" Yusuke asks as Twilight thinks for a moment.

"Yes it should, so I guess we can make it." Twilight says.

"Awesome, so we'll see you all later then?" Kuwabara asks the mares.

"Sure thing! You guys are gonna love Doughnut Joe's Doughnut's!" Twinkleshine says happily.

"We'll see you all later then." Lyra says as both her and the rest of Twilight's friends start leaving, except for one.

"Hey Twilight, would it be all right if I tagged along with you? I'm kind of curious about hearing Yusuke's and Kuwabara's world to." Moondancer asks.

"I'm all right with it, if you two are." Twilight looks over at both humans.

"I'm cool with it." Yusuke says.

"It's no problem with me." Kuwabara replies.

"Great, let's get going." Twilight says as her, Moondancer, Spike, Yusuke, and Kuwabara take off while Minuette, Twinkleshine, Lemon Hearts, and Lyra Heartstrings go a different direction. Twilight's group finally arrives at a tower and proceeds to unlock the door. They step inside and head towards a big room with shelves upon shelves of books, a chalk board with written equations, and a big table with books, papers, and pens scattered all over it. "Go ahead and have a seat." Twilight says as everyone grabs a chair around the table while Twilight flips the blackboard around to show a blank board and starts doodling three different ponies. "I'm not the best artist, so please bear with me." Twilight says while Yusuke and Kuwabara grimace a bit having to go through lessons again.

Back on human world the sun sets at a local cemetery when a young man with green eyes and long red hair while wearing a light red school outfit with dark yellow trim and black shoes; walks along the tombstones and stops at one as he places a bouquet of roses before it.

"Hello mother. I'd thought I'd come by to tell I just graduated from high school, the top of my class as well. I just wish both you and dad were here to celebrate with me." He says as he carefully removes a rose from the bouquet. "I still feel sorry for what I've put you through, you might not see it that way, but I do and I hope you can forgive me one day." Just then he extends his arm while holding the rose making the stem extend like a whip toward a nearby tree, wrapping around a thick branch. The young man pulls the whip causing the tree branch to snap off and fall to the ground.

"Even as a human, you're still as cutthroat as ever..." Says a male voice as a short young man appears wearing a white headband with spiky black hair and white streaks. He also has dark red eyes and has a lean muscular build while he wears a black cloak/jacket with a white collar and black pants that tucked into his black boots. "...Yoko Kurama."

"How do you know my other name?" Kurama asks, getting ready for a fight.

"I was able to see your demon energy." The short man says as he unwraps his headband to reveal a third violet eye in the middle of his forehead.

"You're a demon as well." Kurama replies as the rose stem shrinks down back to normal. "Who are you and why are you tracking me?"

"My name is Hiei and I tracked you down to offer you a job." He says as he wraps his headband around his third eye. "I'm planning on breaking into spirit worlds artifact vault and steel the artifacts of darkness." He says walking toward a nearby gravestone and leans down to pick up a sword he had placed there earlier. "I can't break into the vault myself, so I need your help."

"It's been a while since I've heard about the artifacts of darkness, tell me; was one of them the forlorn hope?" Kurama asks a Hiei smiles a bit.

"Yes, the forlorn is among the artifacts of darkness. So does that mean you're in?"

"Yes, although I feel the two of us won't be enough to break into the spirit world vaults."

"Don't worry, I have another demon in mind to help us out." Hiei replies as the two of them start to leave when suddenly an unknown force freezes them in place. Both Hiei and Kurama look around frantically to find the reason why they can't move. "What the hell is going on?!" He exclaims.

"I don't know..." Kurama starts talking as he notices that both him and Hiei are being shined on from above. They both look up to see the moon shine brightly on them; however the image of an equine with a horn appears on the surface of the moon. "But it looks we're going to find out!" Kurama exclaims as both demons disappear in a flash, leaving no trace of who stood amongst the graves.
