The mane 6 woke up in a different part of a strange world. They must find the answers about what's happening and facing monsters representing themselves along the way as the world will torture their minds and try to break their will.

This story is The Evil Within+MLP crossover, with Amnesia and Silent Hill vibe added to to the mix.

Each chapter will tell the events happening from each of Mane 6's POV. So most of the events happen concurrently.

This story is tagged AU due to technologies we never seen in the show.
This story is anthro because some objects that appear in this fanfic is...well, is a little more of a nonsense if used by the original ponies we're used to see. But I still don't know if I will change it back to normal ponies, I don't know if the whole anthro thing will be a placeholder instead.

Chapter 1: The Beginning

View Online

Twilight tried to open her eyes, her eyelids were heavy as if she was very sleepy. Twilight could barely feel herself, her head was heavy.

Twilight yawned again, it felt like her body was weighed down by a lead filled saddlebag but somehow she just had to wake up. Urgency started to thrill along her nerves, something was terribly wrong.

She couldn't remember how long she was sleeping, she couldn't even remember if she was sleeping in the first place.

"Where am I?" Twilight muttered as she stood up, her head was dizzy like the whole world was spinning around her.. "Is anyone here?" Twilight shouted. "Hello? Rainbow Dash? Pinkie? AJ? Rarity? Anyone?" Twilight asked, her voice echoed throughout the area, but nopony answered her in return.

She was in a forest, as far as she could tell. She was utterly confused, because there was no way she could have end up here. She couldn't remember if she was in the forest before she fell asleep.

Twilight tried to use her magic to cast a light for herself. Her horn lit up. She looked around, she was inside a forest.

The forest was in silence, no signs of anypony. The only sound she heard was the wind blowing.

"Let's take a look." Twilight thought out loud.

Twilight flew up but when she was in the height of the top of the tree, she felt that she hit something solid and hard.

"What?" Twilight touched the area above her head with her hands. She felt like she was touching something. It feels like she was touching an extremely thick glass. An invisible ceiling. She It appeared that it covered the entire world. "This is beyond my imagination."

Suddenly her horn's light started to flicker, its light grew dim, before disappearing instantly. "No!" Twilight tried to use her magic again but to no avail.

"Oh, this is just...." Twilight groaned as she flew under the "ceiling". With no other choices left, she decided to fly staight forward. She flew across the woods, she found nothing but branches and trees, and empty grasslands. She was looking around constantly to search for anyone who could help her.

After some minutes of flying, she found the campfire down below. There might be somepony there. Twilight thought and she swooped down and landed near the camp. The camp, still, no signs of anypony. In the tent, there was a backpack and a couple of sleeping beds.

"What? There can't be a camp without its owner." Twilight asked herself in a confusion. Twilight saw a map in a backpack, she picked it up. "Where am I?"

The map gave her a detail of the woods, which was actually a park. The red circle circled around the campfire drawing on the map, it said "We are here.", from the camp, at the bottom of the map, there was a a cabin that was named "Informations" and next to it was a gate which said "Entrance/Exit".

Hope there's pony there. I could use some help. Twilight thought. No time to waste. Twilight flared her wings and flew off.

"Ow, my head." Dash muttered as she woke up in a house, in the town and, like Twilight, there were nopony to be found. Her head was very heavy and she was dizzy. She felt like she just drank about ten barrels of cider.

Dash looked out of the window, it looked like she was in a house in the Ponyville with nopony were there, and most light posts were flickering, covering the street in darkness.

"Anypony? Hello." Dash shouted loudly, but nothing happened. Dash walked downstairs and saw a stack of wine crates. "Is this Berry Punch's house?" Dash questioned.

She looked around the house. She looked everywhere but it seems that nopony was home. There was an anonymous message written on a small piece of paper.

"I don't want to say this to you, but you must trust me. This world is full of stuff that would only come from from your nightmares. It is filled with every kinds of terror imaginable. To get out of here, you must get to the center of this place. And-" The rest of the message was unclear as the bottom half of the paper was torn off.

"Woah, what? So you're not gonna say anything about this world to me? Or about the 'stuff' you were talking about?" Dash said. "And..." She stepped out of the house. "Damn, it's so dark." Dash flew up. "Better go and try to see a better view." Dash mumbled. "I'll punch that pony so hard, if he or she lied-" Dash hit the invisible ceiling, just like Twilight. "Are you serious? I can't fly above these houses? This is bullshit." Dash lowered her altitude, now she was in the average height of a building's second floor.

"Why is every single house have lights off? This is weird, I-I..." Dash groaned. "I must be dreaming." Dash looked around. "Hello? Anypony wants to tell me what's going on?" Dash flew through the town, hoping to find someone she could ask.

"Huh?" Pinkie woke up, it appeared that she was inside a mine. "What the? Is somepony's pranking or something?" Pinkie said. "Oh, hey narrator." Wait, what? "You cannot hide from me!" But Pinkie, it's a story, you must not talk to me. "Okie-dokie But first, I need something, it's gloomy here." Really?....really "Yes, silly!" Huh...fine, here.

"Ooo, an electric lantern? Cool! And maybe a GPS-" Nononono, you can't cheat, you can't cheat. Now pretend that I'm not here, we never met, we never talk.

"Cross my heart, hope to fly, stick cupcake in my eye." Pinkie said. I'm very sorry my viewers, please forgive me. Now, where did I left off...Ok.

"What? A dead end? Come on, you can't be serious." Pinkie said as she reached the path out of the mine, which was caved in. "Do I need to do something to press B to blow?"

Pinkie thought out loud and looked around, the mine were flooded with darkness, filled with wall mounted lights and equipments. She noticed the sign that read "Equipment", the arrow next to it, pointed into the section of the mine, without lights. Pinkie gulped, proceeded to walk into the abyss. Side by side of her was saturated with darkness, below her feet were mine cart tracks.

"Helloooooooo." Pinkie said just before the lights at the distance flickered, the shadowy masculine figure, at the end of the railroad, ran away quickly as Pinkie stood in silence.

"That's nono-jojo. Wait, maybe he's a cheery like me." Pinkie asked, her voice echoed throughout the mine shaft. "Yolo!" Pinkie said as she walked toward the light.

"Uh...huh? Where? Where am I?" Fluttershy asked as she woke up. "I don't like this place." Fluttershy said as she looked around, it looked like a dungeon.

"Hello?" Fluttershy asked as her voice echoed throughout the dungeon, she looked behind her, only to found a wall.

Fluttershy looked forward and saw the long hallway, Fluttershy walked, side by side of her was empty cells and torches on the wall. Fluttershy heard squeaking sound, only her can hear it, sounded like animals talking.

"What?" Fluttershy said as she peeked around the corner. There was a cylinder tube on the floor, made of glass, the fireflies were trapped inside.

"Poor little things." Fluttershy said as she squatted next to it. "You want to get out?" Fluttershy said as she heard squeaky voice in return. "Ok." Fluttershy picked up the cylinder and threw it on the floor, shattering it.

"Freedom! You like it, don't you?" Fluttershy as the fireflies flew out for their freedom, the fireflies flew turn at the corner and along the long corridor. The chain rattling sound and a deep growl was heard. Fluttershy hid in fear, shivering.

"What is that sound?" Fluttershy said as she calmed herself, she walked through the corridor. The screaming, roaring, and breathing beacame more and more audible.

Fluttershy saw two large cells side by side of her, one has a prisoner in it, held back by trammel chains. It was a muscular stallion, wearing torn blue shorts and an iron mask, covering his entire head, except his eyes, they were crimson red.

He made a loud angry roar once Fluttershy walked near his cell, causing her to run toward where the fireflies went. Fluttershy turned left at the corner, she saw fireflies flying above an oil lantern and a box of matches in the small storage room.

"Thank you." Fluttershy thanked the fireflies. "This will come in handy." Suddenly there was a loud noice, sounded like iron bars falling and iron door got busted in were heard, followed by a deep roar.

Her first thought was something or whatever she had met earlier is now on the loose.

"What was that?" Fluttershy whimpered as she saw a huge shadow around the corner.

Fluttershy hid behind the wooden barrels, as the figure walking closer and closer to her room, with the sound of chains dragging across the floor. It was the prisoner, Fluttershy hid and silenced herself once he entered the room. The prisoner looked around as he swiped his chains across the room in anger, destroying the shelf not much far from Fluttershy.

He even spun them around ferociously. He grabbed the boxes before smashing them with his fists and kicked the pieces away.

The prisoner groaned in frustration and run out of the room. Fluttershy quietly sighed in relief. Fluttershy slowly walked out of the room, the fireflies flew around the corner, signaling her to follow them. Fluttershy silently walked to them and continued into the deeper part of the dungeon.

"Where in Equestria am I?" Rarity said as she got up, she looked around, it looked like she was in a castle. "Uh, ugh, dirt! Bleh!" Rarity complained as she brushed the dirt of her shirt and trousers.

"Get away, dirt!." Rarity brushed dirt of her trousers. "It's very gloomy in here......Oh, this will do." Rarity saw a lit candlestick in a distance, she tried to use her magic to pick it up. It flickered before it let out a spark. Her magic was unusable, like Twilight's.

"What? Oh, Faust. What sorcery is this?" Rarity tried again. Her horn did not produce any glow this time. "Fine, but I theorized that there's something wrong here." Rarity ran toward it.

"At least my hands are still functional." Rarity said as she picked it up along with the lighter.

Once she shone her candle's light around, the 'castle' was unusual to other castles in Equestria, the castle was made of stone bricks, instead of other materials such as marbles and crystals.

Rarity walked a few steps, found a dimly lit, long hallway, with a carpet in the middle, with lit candle sticks side by side. Suddenly, a strong gust of wind blew past her, her candle and other candles around her were extinguished.

"Oh, why?" Rarity said as she tried to lit the candle with her lighter, but she stopped as soon as a low breathing sound is heard, she turned at the corner she came from.

Rarity leaned herself against the wall and peek, the thing was walking through the hallway. It has mare body, wearing white, long sleeved shirt, navy blue vest with golden buttons, black trousers and matching black shoes. Its body was stabbed in multiple places by sewing needles. The needles were unusual in size, they were as big as a pencil. It was also holding one as a weapon too. The head was not a pony head, its head is a spotlight, with Rarity's mane protruding from it.

WHAT IN EQUESTRIA IS THAT? Rarity thought as the monster walking slowly towards her location, Rarity held her breath as its light shone right next to her hoof.

Rarity slowly crept away from the light. She kept creeping until her back was against the wall. It slowly moves to wards her, scanning the floor with its light. Rarity was really shivering and breathing nervously.

Suddenly, loud metallic clanking sound with a loud roar was heard, the monster seems to be startled, it ran off to the direction of the sound.

Rarity sighed in relief. "Thank, Faust." Rarity said as she followed the path where the monster went, ventured deeper into the castle.

Applejack woke up, she was sleeping on the grass, in the woods. "Where in tarnation am I?" Applejack said as she looked around. "Am I in a forest or somethin'?" Applejack said in confusion. Applejack walked for few steps, she found a dirt road with footprints on it.

"Somepony was here? Maybe, ah should go there to get help." Applejack said as she followed the hoofprints.

"Ah have a bad feeling about this." Applejack spotted a campfire and a tent. The backpack appeared to be looted, a diary with her cutie mark on it and an electric glow stick was sitting next to it.

Applejack heard a scream in the distance.

"Huh? Hey, who's out there?" Applejack said as she grabbed the glow stick and rushed out of the tent to the direction of the sound, she found a tunnel. As she approached it, a horde of bats flew pass her.

"Ugh, bats." Applejack said as she traversed through the tunnel. However, it felt like she was not alone. Something was watching her. "Wha?" She heard a metallic clang and something that it sounded like crying.

"Ah better get outta here." Applejack said as she picked up the pace and ran out of the tunnel, it was a short tunnel, but for her, it looked like very long one with something lurking in it.

Applejack looked in the distance, she found the apple orchard, her residence and place of work in Ponyville.

"Hope, everyone's alright." Applejack said as she ran as fast as she can to the orchard.

Dash walked along the town, it was so quite that only her footsteps can be heard. "This place seriously gives me a creeps." Dash said as she heard of strong gust of wind blowing past her.

"What?" Dash looked around, she saw thick black smoke, it started form slowly around her.

"Uh oh, not good." Dash said as she attempted to fly up, but she felt like something was sucking her down to the smoke.

"No. No. NONONONONONONO!" Dash screamed, sucked into the thick black smoke. However, it disappeared and caused her to hit a solid ground instead.

Later, she was be able to barely open her eyes, she felt like her brain was keeping her from waking up. What she saw and feel was that she was on a bed-like machine, in a hospital-like building. She felt like a metallic component covering the upper part of her head, just an inch above her eyes, the stallion figure walked to her, checking the monitor next to her and periodically glanced at her. Her eyes was almost shut, it was impossible to tell what he looked like.

"Subject Number 3. Heart beat rate, normal. Blood pressure, normal." the stallion said, just before he turned his head, looking at her. "Don't fail on us, we're counting on you all, please." Dash felt her eyes were heavy again, her eyes became completely shut.

Don't fail us? Subject Number 3? Am I being experimented on or something? Dash thought to herself. Dash opened her eyes once again, she found herself lying on a cold, shiny floor.

"This is getting weirder and weirder." Dash said as she stood up, her head was slightly heavy.

Dash found herself inside a museum. She recognized this place.

I came here before, on a field trip as a filly. She thought. Well, it's kinda good to bring back memories.

Dash walked around, bringing back her fillyhood memories, caused her to forget about the black smoke that was happening earlier.

Dash saw her favorite paintings, a painting which resembles cloudosseum with three pegasi flies over it, making rainbow trails over the cloudosseum. Only a few ponies know that Dash, secretly, likes art. She hides it from others because she feels like it does not fit her character. Dash wondered around the halls , she felt like she was reliving her foalhood again. Even though the place was eerily quiet.

After a while, Dash came across a sculpture which she felt like she never see it before nor being able to recognized it.

"What the......I never saw this before." Dash raised her eyebrow.

It was a statue that resembled a fully-grown, extremely tall, brown-coated stallion wearing blue gym shorts and white undershirt with number 1 on it, it also have many "#1" badges on its undershirt and also carrying a golden trophy. The sculpture was named "Victor". It had a trophy as its head. Dash could not help laughing.

"Number one, huh? Actually, it's me, not you" Dash mocked the sculpture as she made loser hand gesture. "Alright, time to find a way out."

Dash walked towards the double doors in the distance. At the very moment she touched the knob, she heard heavy footsteps from behind.

"Huh?" Dash looked behind her. The sculpture came to life. It charged toward Dash with a trophy in its hand, ready to swing at her face.

"Ah, shit!" Dash screamed as she busted through the doors and flew across halls after halls.

Victor was too big to fit the doorframe, it smashed its way through. Its footsteps caused the whole gallery to shake. The paintings and sculptures fell onto the floor.

Dash turned around the corner. She did a barrel roll to dodge the pieces of the ceiling that was raining down on her.

Dash looked behind her and saw Victor closing in on her. She increased her flight speed, almost fast enough to make a sonic rainboom.

At that moment, the ceiling started to crack and caused more debris to rain down on her.

".....Woah!" Dash screamed as she barely dodged a bust that the walking sculpture threw at her. Dash heard the sculpture continued to throw bunch of things at her. From paintings to busts, the sculpture threw everything it could find.

Dash dodged everything it threw at her, by performing evasive maneuver. Dash felt like she was a war plane instead of a pegasus.

Dash flew into a maintenance tunnel, hoping to escape it because of smaller space. "I hope it won't bash the entire place down to get me-"

Dash accidentally crashed into the pile of cardboard boxes.

"Ow." Dash muttered as she got up, looked behind her, the sculpture was still chasing her. It was punching and bashing the entire ceiling down to get her. She flew off, she did not care about exhaustion. Dash flew into a staff room, it took her a second to realized it was a dead end.

"Oh, fuck!" Dash looked around. "Come on, there gotta be something!" Dash noticed an air vent, she jumped into it as the sculpture busted into the room. Dash tried to pant very quietly, trying not to give away her location.

Dash dropped down into another maintenance corridor, she looked around, checking that the statue wasn't there. Dash, after made clear that it's safe, walked through the corridor.

"I hope that thing doesn't follow me." Dash entered another room, it was extremely weird due to it looked more like a room in the hospital, rather than the staff room.

The room has a carpet in the middle, bookshelf on the left side, an office desk at the middle, and two office chairs, one of them is bigger, looks more like a boss chair.

"This is totally weird, an office in the maintenance corridor? What the....?" Dash said just before two ghostly figures appeared in front of her, both of them were sitting on the chairs, facing each other. One sitting on office chair, dressed like a doctor. One sitting on the boss chair dressed in two-piece suit.

"So, what do you want to say, Mr.Cross." The boss asked.

"I've been planning on a project called 'STEM'' Dr. Cross said


"This project, uh, we'll create a machine, its purpose is connecting ponies' memories together. Sharing their memories. It's like a visual world creator."

"Are you sure that it's safe to use?"

"We're not sure yet, sir. Come with me, sir. I'll show you." The figures stood up and disappeared.

"This is waaaay too confusing." Dash said, she couldn't piece everything together.

First, she was confused already about how she gets here, then the storm of black smoke and some weird hospital, now ghostly figures talking about a project.

Suddenly the light of the room went out, Dash gasped in fear. "Oh, why this?" Dash looked around, she saw a shadowy figure...of a mare in the corner of the room, her face facing the corner. It has a horn, and a pair of wings. Is that Twilight? It was hard to see and this was the first thing to come into Dash's mind.

"Uh.....Twilight?" Dash said as she walked closer to her. "Is that you?" She touched her shoulder. "It's me, Rainbow Dash."

'Twilight' suddenly turned her head and screamed at Dash, her eyes and mouth were hollow, with bright lights coming out of it. Her head was soaked in blood, with more blood coming out above her forehead and eyes

"GAH!" Dash shrieked as she covered her eyes, suddenly around her was white.

Then she looked around, she was in the another room of the gallery. "What the hell was that?" Dash heard a loud noice from behind, the sculpture returned, it jumped down from the balcony above her.

Suddenly, the alarm was activated, all of the exits were blocked by the walls of barbed wire.

"Oh, well. I'm locked in here with it. Great!" The sculpture charged at Dash and swung at her, she rolled to the left to dodge.

Dash ran and take cover behind the sculpture. "Think, Rainbow, think. There's gotta be something." Dash said to herself.

The sculpture swung at another sculpture, breaking it to pieces. Dash flew up, she flew to the balcony where the sculpture jumped down.

She thought she was safe, until the sculpture started throwing paintings at the walkway.

"Come on, give me a break!" Dash said as she quickly looked around the floor below. There must be something she could use, or else she would be stuck in here with the sculpture.

Dash saw a lever at the other side of the room.

"Hm....that might do the trick- WOAH!" Dash barely dodged the painting that the sculpture threw at her.

Dash swooped down. "Hey, loser! Over here!" Dash challenged the sculpture as she tried to get to the lever. Dash saw the sculpture grabbed the paintings from the display. Dash knew what the sculpture was doing, she prepared herself to dodge more paintings.

The first painting was thrown at Dash, she dodged it with ease. "You didn't learn from last time, ain't ya?"

Dash charged to the lever as the sculpture charged at her. However, the pegasus was quicker than the sculpture.

"Let's hope this works!" Dash pulled the lever, causing the large sculpture suspending at the center of the room dropped down at very high speed, crushing the sculpture to pieces. Dash smirked at her enemy's defeat and walked toward it.

"Victor....my flank." Dash said to the pile of small stones.

Suddenly, the floor .....liquefied, creating a giant black hole on the floor. Dash yelped as she tried to fly away as it sucked her in.

"Oh no, not again!" Dash said as she tried to fly faster, but to no avail. Dash screamed at the top of her voice as the hole dragged her in.

Twilight was flying in the dark sky. Her hope had yet to evaporate, she was determined even though she saw nothing but trees and trees, over and over again.

"It's too much tree." Twilight talked to herself, suddenly she felt like her back was heavy. "What?" The lavender mare screamed as she fell. Fortunately, she did not get herself injured.

Twilight groaned and stood up but her back was heavy. As if there was something so heavy holding her wings down. She turned around to see it. "WHAT? Wha- how?" Twilight couldn't believe at what she saw, her wings were locked tight via a handcuff-like device. "Alright, now I am convinced I am not in Equestria." Twilight searched for the map she had bought with her.

"You've got to be kidding me!" Twilight realized that she let the map got out of her grip when she was falling. "All up to luck, I guess." She sighed.

Twilight stood up, despite some weight of the wingcuff. Twilight shone her flashlight, she looked around. Twilight found a dirt road, not much far away from her. "Well, that's convenient."

"Alright, left or right? Faust, I hate these kind of choice." Twilight looked left and right. "Um....." Twilight concentrated her thoughts. "When I looked at the map, I was making my way south. And I think now I'm facing the west of the forest." She headed to the left. "It must be this way."

After walking for a while, she saw a bright purple light emitted from the distance.

"Wha-?" Twilight gasped and scratched her eyes. "Um.. hello?" Twilight felt the danger, but she refused to not greet the "pony" in front of her.

The pony was wearing an indigo mozzetta, a purple robe, and a pair of black boots.

"Um....Mister? Mistress? I need your help-" The figure turned around. It appeared that the figure was an unicorn skeleton wearing a robe with purple flames emitting from its skull. Twilight gasped as she backed away from the skeleton.

The mage formed purple orb on its left hand, ready to throw. Twilight started running as the mage threw the magic orb at her. It missed and hit the tree instead and the tree was reduced to ashes.

"That was a big mistake!" Twilight kept dodging the orbs by running among the trees. Twilight suddenly heard a sound behind her like a tree being uprooted, she looked behind her. The mage was uprooting some trees and prepared to throw them at Twilight like a large spear.

"Oh, no." The first two trees was launched at Twilight, she increased her speed and started to run faster, despite the weight of the wingcuffs. Trees were getting thrown violently at her.

Twilight looked behind her again, the mage mysteriously disappeared. "Where did it go?" Twilight looked around, her mind said to her that it will show up again. She panted, catching her breath.

Twilight saw something in the distance, it was a large picnic and camping area. Twilight slowly walked towards it.

"Hope it's not a trap this time." Twilight saw about five camper vans, two of them have trailers, a picnic table and three campfires.

"Wait, this place looks very familiar." Twilight noticed something on the the picnic table, it has a logo imprinted on it. The logo was a green unicorn head in a yellow circle.

She recognized it. "Licorne National Park. Silly me, why I couldn't recall it in the first place." Memories flooded through her mind, her first camping trip, first picnic, first birdwatching.

Her nostalgia was cut short when she heard a giggle behind her, she turned around.

"Huh?" Twilight could not believe it when she saw what was in front of her. It was Twilight's filly-self.

"Hi!" Filly Twilight greeted. Adult Twilight responded by smiling nervously and waved her hand. "Um. Hi." This is the weirdest thing since I've met my future self wearing an eyepatch and black rubber suit. Twilight thought to herself.

"Who are you? I mean, you're me, but I'm me too. How can there be two me's? It's not scientifically possible. You are not scientifically possible!" filly Twilight raised her eyebrow.

"Um....I'm you, basically. I-I-I uh... your future self." Twilight tried to keep her words together.

"In the future, I'll be an alicorn? Oh my Faust!" Filly Twilight cheered in excitement. "Hey, It seems that.......are you wings cuffed?"
Filly Twilight noticed the wingcuff on Twilight's back.

"Oh, yeah. It's kinda....heavy." Twilight said.

"Hey! I think I got something to help you.....adult me! Follow me!" Filly Twilight ran into one of the camper vans. Twilight hesitantly followed.

It appeared that the van was the one that belongs to her parents.

"Memories...." Twilight muttered. She looked around to find her filly self, but she seemed to disappeared. "Um.....Twilight? My filly-self?" Twilight walked around to find her filly-self. She was nowhere to be found. Did she vanished? Twilight thought and looked around. She noticed something that caught her eyes, a notebook on the drawer with her cutie mark on the front cover. "My diary?" Twilight picked it up. "How did it get here?"

Twilight's Journal

I'm so happy today! Tomorrow, dad and mom will take me to Licorne National Park. We do this annually, but this time we're going for camping too! I can't wait for that!

Twilight was flipping through the pages, until she heard a metallic clang. It sounded like somepony entered the van. Twilight slowly turned her head to look behind her. Nopony was there, but she knew there was something inside the van with her. Her heart was beating so fast, she slowly walked forward, step by step. She looked around, not seeing anything inside made her heart pounded faster and faster.

Suddenly, something was touching her shoulder.

Twilight shrieked and shoved the thing away from her. "Hey, stop it!" She was about to run away, but that voice.....it sounded familiar. "It's me! Rainbow Dash!"

She turned around, it was relieving for her to see one of her friends again. "Dash? Oh thank Faust, you're alright!" Twilight ran up to Dash and hugged her. Yes, she was literally hugging the mare.

"Um....Twilight, this isn't a time for...this." Dash said as Twilight let her go.

"Oh, sorry. I was overreacting." Twilight blushed. "Where were you?"

"Hey, um.....let me tell ya, I woke up in a town, and then, I went to an art gallery. And there was a giant statue trying to kill me, but I happened to killed it. Then, I popped up in this...woods. I saw you running from something purple, it was attacking you. Am I right?" Twilight nodded.

"And, I followed you to here. Oh, I forgot. When I woke up in this woods, this was lying right next to me." Dash explained and showed Twilight a golden key.

"The label says: "You friend needs help." Dash said.

"Um.....I think you mean here." Twilight turned her back at Dash, showing the wingcuffs.

"Well, that explains everything." Dash unlocked the cuffs for Twilight. "Alright, now...how are we gonna get outta here."

"I found a map and lost it. I'm sorry, it flew away from my hands. Just before that wingcuffs appeared out of nowhere." Twilight said. "I was flying towards the exit, then I fell down and continued to walk towards it."

"Alright, alright, calm down. I guess we should check this camper van." Dash told Twilight and started searching the van.

"Hey, but..this belongs to my parents." Twilight said, causing Dash to froze for a second.

"Wait.....your parents? How can it be here in this world then?" Dash asked, but received no answer. "Twilight?"

"This place is Licorne National Park, I used to go here when I was a filly. Does the same applies to the gallery you were in?" Dash paused and then nod back while searching for something useful. "Is this world......our memories or something?"

"Well, what about those weirdos? The statue and the purple thing that was chasing you and me." Dash kept on searching while listening to Twilight's word.

"I really don't know- Oh hey, Dash. We found our way out." Twilight grabbed something on the floor and showed it to Dash. "Didn't know that it landed here."

"What is it, egghead?" Dash asked.

"It's the map! I think that's what my filly-self was talking about." Twilight grabbed it. "Now we can go back to flying."

"Your filly-self?" Dash lost it when she heard that. "You're......you're filly-self? You were talking to yourself!" Dash tried to speak while laughing. "Oh, I-I-I-I can't..."

"IT'S TRUE!" Twilight shouted. "I didn't lose my mind!"

"Eh, heh, OK." Dash stopped laughing. "I guess we better get going now." However, both of their hearts skipped a beat when they heard raspy breathing outside. Twilight looked out the window and saw the Mage wandering around the campsite.

"Shhhhhhhh.....Heads down." Twilight and Dash kept their heads low from the camper van windows. Dash raised her head up a bit to see it. It entered the van opposite of the one Twilight and Dash was in.

Dash lowered her head. "Hope it goes away-" Dash's pupil shrunk when she heard giant footsteps. "Wait, what? .....It's not him again, right?"

"What's him, Dash-" Victor smashed the camper van's roof opened, barely missed Twilight and Dash. "Well, look who's back!" Dash rolled to dodge Victor's furious smashes.

Twilight heard a quick raspy gasp, realized that the mage had noticed them. She backed away until she hit one of the corners of the van. Twilight suddenly felt her mind was empty, as if she was being mind controlled. Her pupils changed to bright magenta and she stood up, mindlessly walked out of the van.

Dash noticed her. "Twilight, what are you doing!" Dash immediately got up as Twilight got immediately strangled by the mage right after she got out.

Victor grabbed the camper van and lifted it up. Dash flew out of it before he slammed the van into the ground.

Dash flew up into the air and swooped down at the Mage. She knocked it away from Twilight,

Twilight, now freed from the mage's control, started gasping for air.

"GET AWAY FROM HER!" Dash tackled the mage and punched it repeatedly. But the mage gained an upper hand, punching Dash in the face and clawing her left cheek, leaving it scarred. The mage's hand right hand glowed purple and once its hand touched Dash, she was thrown across the campsite, hitting the tree.

Twilight was catching her breath, but she was cut short by the footsteps behind her. Victor swung his trophy at Twilight, but Twilight barely dodged it. While running away, Twilight then came up with an idea. She attempted to lure Victor into the mage.

"That.....really......hurts." Dash tried to get up, but the mage grabbed Dash and lifted her up by her collar. Dash closed her eyes, when the mage attempted to kill her by forming a purple orb in its hand.

"HEY!" Twilight's shout cause Mage to turn around, at first it smirked but it froze in shock as it saw Twilight charging at it with Victor behind her.

"See ya later, wizard! Catch me if you can!" Dash took this opportunity to run away from the mage and escaped its grip. The mage growls in anger and launched some magic orbs at Dash, all of them missed her.

Twilight tackled the mage just before Victor swung his trophy. It was a perfect hit, but Twilight managed to fly away before the impact, so the trophy hit the mage instead. Its upper body was shattered to pieces, the mage was presumed dead.

"Haha, stupid! Nice work, Twi! You still got the map?" Dash laughed at the mage's defeat.

"Yes, in my grip the whole time." Twilight said, she noticed Victor charging at them.

"Oh, what are you gonna do, huh? Come and get us! Yeah, go ahead!" Dash and Twilight flew up high into the air as Victor swung at them and missed, it stomped the ground in frustration.

"Nice try, loser!" Dash taunted.

Twilight couldn't help, she was laughing along with Dash. "Alright, there's the exit." Twilight said. "These invisible ceiling......I hope we can fly a bit higher."

"Yeah, that sucks...a lot." Dash commented.

"Wait, wait a minute....." Both of them reached the exit, but, however, Twilight seems to be surprised rather than relief.

"Oh, hey! Look! Ponyville! Wow, I didn't know that this place- Twilight? C'mon, why are you....Twilight?"

"What in Equestria? Licorne is actually a mile away from Canterlot!" Twilight explained. "It's nowhere near Ponyville!"

"Hey, maybe it's because this world is created from our memories. I don't know but you egghead should've come up with a speculation by now." Dash said sarcastically and jokingly. "Well, if you want to some time think, you got it! I'm gonna go and find my way out of this world. See ya!" Dash flew towards Ponyville.

"Wait for me!" Twilight quickly followed Dash.

Chapter 2-2 (Rarity and Applejack): Fillyhoods

View Online

Rarity walked through the ''castle'' with her candle in hand. It does not look much like a castle, when inspected closely. More like a mansion. The mansion was built from stone bricks held together by wooden beams. The dim moonlight shone through the windows, the hallways were neatly decorated. Dashing carpets, flower pots, paintings, all of the stuff rich ponies would own.

Somehow this place looks familiar…...

After the encounter with that thing, she became paranoid. She was worried if she would see it again. Is it still after me? She looked behind her. Nothing was there.

"I guess I am safe for a moment." She sighed in relief. She opened the door, finding a place to rest. It appeared to be a guest room, Rarity sat down on the couch and put the candle on the table. She placed both of her hands on her head. "What is this world?" Rarity asked herself.

Suddenly, she heard a foal laughing. Rarity raised her head.

"Dad! This place looks nice!" Rarity saw a ghostly figure of her foal-self, along with another figure that appeared to be her father. Hondo M. Flanks. Younger Rarity jumped onto the couch right next to her.

"You like it, don't you? I bought this from my cousin." Hondo chuckled. "He's used to spend his time here in spring and winter."

"Dad, can we move here? This is better than our house in Ponyville." Rarity could not help smiling, she remembered that time well. "Please?"

"Sorry, but you do know that you are studying with Ms. Cheerilee in Ponyville, right?" Younger Rarity's smile faded. "But we can spend our vacation here, if you want!" Younger Rarity cheered.

"Thank you, dad!" Both of them hugged each other, before fading away.

"Wait, this belongs to my family?" Rarity seemed to regained her memories, but she was confused at the same time. She knows that she could not remember it earlier, but why though?. She thought for a moment. "This cannot be right, it was destroyed years ago!"

“But…” Rarity tried to think, over and over again. She couldn’t get that specific part of her memory out. It felt like she knew it’s there but somehow she could not reach it!

Rarity grabbed the candle and walked into the hallway, she opened the door to the room next to the one she was in. It had a long table in the middle, shelves, cabinets and a drawing board. The room was filled with decorated pieces of cloth, ranging from hideous to stylish. This was the room she would practice her embroidery when she was a filly.

She walked into the room and her younger self appeared again. This time stitching and decorating pieces of cloth. Her younger self lifted it up to inspect it. She seemed to be happy about her work, then disappeared. Rarity looked at the pieces of cloth on the table. They were her first craftsmanship......or crafts-MARE-ship in this case. She smiled as she picked one up. It may looked ugly, but she couldn't deny how much she have become much more professional at it now.


It sounded like light, muffled breathing. Rarity's pupils shrunk, she stood up and slowly walked towards the dark corner to hide herself from the Seamstress. Rarity saw a bright orange ring on the wall and the stone bricks--both within and surrounding it--started to 'melt'. The walls liquefied and melt down like an ice cube near the fire. The droplets quickly evaporated, accompanied by sizzling sounds.

The Seamstress entered the room before Rarity could move. It let out a mix of terrifying shrieks and yells. It charged towards Rarity in an attempt to stab her.

Rarity tried to stop it by grabbing both of its arms, but its strength overpowered her. Rarity tried to push it back. It did not even flinch, it grabbed her neck with its left hand and pinned her against the dresser. Rarity choked as she tried to breathe, she grabbed the seamstress' another hand as it attempted to stab her again.

As Rarity struggled to breathe, she grabbed one of the needles that was impaled into the seamstress' body. She slowly pulled it out as the seamstress seems to reacted in pain. It twitched as she yanked it out of its body. She wasted no time and jammed it right into its spotlight head, shattering the glass on its spotlight head. It quickly let go off her and started squealing in pain. Rarity quickly ran out of the room but just before she could, the seamstress roared and concentrated its light on the ceiling.

The ceiling burst into flame with a whoosh. Half melted bricks and burning timbers rained down on Rarity as she tried to escape. She screamed as embers burned holes in her outfit.

"......No, not this again!" Rarity recalled this event. She saw something down the hallway.

She saw her mother, as a ghostly figure like her younger self and her father. She was carrying younger Rarity and was running towards the stairs, the pictures of this event snapped inside her mind which prompted her to follow her mother. She tried to not inhale the smoke which began to saturate the house. But no matter how hard she tried to not to, there seemed to be a small amount of smoke slipping past through her fingers that was covering her mouth.

After running down a few flights of stairs and following her mother's path, the path to go further down was blocked by debris. She turned right and see her father bashed the door open. Her parents ran into the room, so did Rarity. Rarity wheezed and coughed as she walked through the smoke.

It was a dead end.

Rarity looked around, the fire slowly creeped behind her and the smoke saturated the room.

…...Wait Rarity remembered something, if this was the fire that happened long ago, there had to be something to get her out. Rarity looked around and saw something she was thinking of.

Rarity saw a hole in the floor and jumped down and landed inside a dining room, landing perfectly on the long table. She looked around where they all went and saw them in the living room. She raced into the room as everything around was collapsing, as soon as she arrived at the living room, her parents ran out of the front door.

Running through the inferno filled Rarity's lungs with ashes and gas, just before she could reach the front door she collapsed. She was panting and tried to stand up, but the smoke was filling her lungs. She coughed rapidly.

"No. I must reach..." Rarity muttered under her breath. "....the exit."

Rarity heard something cracking above her. She looked up and saw the ceiling that held the chandelier was about to break. She gasped in terror as her adrenaline was suddenly at its limit. She got up and ran to the exit just before the chandelier came crashing down on the floor.

Rarity placed her hands on her knees and panted heavily, trying to catch her breath. She was coughing heavily like she was vomiting the smoke from her lungs.

She looked in front of her and saw her filly-self crying, resting on her mother's shoulder. Her parents were comforting her.

"It's alright now, Rarity." Rarity's mother said. "We can find a new one for you."

"But we just spend four months here." Rarity sobbed. "Nothing can replace it! What makes it special is it was a gift from dad's cousin."

Rarity was holding back tears, the manor was bursting with prized collection of luxurious objects. Something Rarity would hold it dear. Just after spending time in two winters and a spring here, everything she liked was gone. All consumed by the inferno. It was heartbreaking for her by the time it happened. Now it is here to haunt her again.

Suddenly, the area around her changed. The grassland outside the manor was replaced by a laboratory. The whole lab was very lit, unlike her family's manor from earlier.

"What?" Rarity looked around, confused. "This world is....eccentric and bizarre." Suddenly, she heard something out of nowhere. The sound was so high pitch it could make her ears bleed.

The sound was so intense that Rarity covered her ears. It sounded like a high pitch sound a speaker would make when it malfunctions. It was as if her head was about to explode. It was too much for her, she groaned as she collapsed. In mere seconds, she passed out.

Applejack arrived at the orchard. The farm looked empty and abandoned. Withered crops, trees with no leaves, even the barn was in a state of disrepair.

"Granny Smith? Apple Bloom? Big Mac? Anyone?"

She walked through the withered orchard, the smell of rotten apples was really overwhelming. "Somethin' tells me that somethin' must've happened to 'em. Ah don't think the farm would be like this if they were here."

When she reached the farmhouse, she noticed that the lights were on. The house was strangely in good condition. Applejack walked closer in surprise as she heard a humming.

Did someone sneak into my house? Applejack thought as she looked through the window. Her jaw dropped. She could not believe at what was in front of her. In the dining room, there was a mare sitting on a chair with photos of Applejack in her hands. That blonde hair and red coat, it can't be her......right?

"Mom? Mom! Is that you?" Applejack knocked on the window. The mare turned to face her.

"Applejack!" Her mother ran up to her. Applejack smiled at their reunion. "Come in, sweetheart!" Her mother said as she ran to the front door and unlocked it. Applejack ran to the door instantly.

Once the door opened, they hugged each other. So tight as if they were crushing each other's chests. Applejack's tears were streaming down her face. It felt like it has been forever since the last time they see each other. It felt like an eternity. According to her memories at the moment, at least.

"Ah thought we ain't gonna see each other again." Applejack choked between her sobs.

"It's alright, we're here together again." Applejack's mother patted her daughter's head. Her mother let go off her. "Come. I’ve just finishing cooking supper." Unlike her children and her husband, she does not possess southern accent due to she is not from Appleloosa like her father, instead she is from Manehattan.

Applejack wiped off her tears as the duo walked into the dining room. Applejack sat down on the chair. She really miss her mother's cooking, her apple pie is Applejack's favorite. The smell really made her mouth water.

“By the way, ma. Why does the farm look…..awful?” Applejack asked. Her mother did not answer. “Ma?”

“We can talk about this after our supper.”

Her mother walked out of the kitchen holding a pot. "Smell good, isn't it?" Her mother put the pot on the table, before she headed to the cupboard to grab some bowls and spoons.

"Thanks, ma." Applejack inhaled the smell. It smelled so good that she suddenly become hungry. She lifted the lid to see what's inside........it was different. Applejack's eyes widened and she gasped in shock. She expected it to be a vegetable soup, it was not. It was a soup. But instead of carrots and onions, it is filled with organs. Intestines, stomachs, hearts, brains and lungs, with crimson red soup. There was even live cockroaches inside it.

Applejack tried to hold back her vomit. "Ma, what is this? This ain't somethin' we eat!" Applejack spat. "Ma, please tell me!"

Her mother turned to her. "It's my special dish, you don't like it?"

Applejack gulped. "Ma, ah-ah don't think nopony in Equestria would ever.......eat this." Her mother replied by slamming the cupboard door shut.

"What did you just say?" Her mother responded in anger. "WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?" She threw the plates at Applejack. "I MADE THAT FOR YOU, YOU UNGRATEFUL FUCK!"

Her mother ran up to her and slapped her in the face. "Our reunion is ruined!" She ran back into the kitchen.

"Ma, what are you doing?" Applejack said in fear. Suddenly, a knife is thrown at her. Fortunately, it hit the wall next to her. "MA!"

"You ungrateful child! You damn HOMEWRECKER!" Her mother threw a spatula and a ladle at her. Applejack covered her face with her arms as she threw a cheese grater, a whisk, and other utensils at her. "I prepared this meal for you! FOR THIS FUCKING REUNION! AND YOU DON'T APPRECIATE IT? I wish you were never been born!"

"Ma, why did you do this?" Her mother ran up to her with a knife. Applejack grabbed her mother's arms. "Ma, please." Applejack was crying on the inside.

Her words fell on deaf ears as her mother kicked her back into the dining room. "You little bitch, stay here!" She repositioned Applejack onto the chair, before stabbing her left hand with the knife, it went through her hand and the table. A scream escaped Applejack's mouth.

Applejack gritted her teeth. "You are not my mom." Applejack stared at her "mother". "My ma is not like this. You are not her! You are not!"

Her "mother" quickly pulled the knife out, Applejack screamed again. She grabbed her 'daughter' by her throat and aimed the knife at her eye.

"What did you just say?"

Applejack used this opportunity to kick her before standing up and grabbed the chair and smashed her with it. She never wanted to do this, but she had to. The mare in front of me isn’t my mother. Whatever it is, it’s pretending to be my mother to mess with my mind. It’s not her. It’s not her. It’s not her.

"Ow, that hurts you fucker!" Applejack ran to the door, she was crying about what she had done.

"Ah'm sorry.....ah'm sorry." Applejack ran to the front door and slammed it shut. She ran and ran, without looking back. Tears were streaming down her face, she didn't want to hurt her 'mom'. But her instinct said it was not her, it was not the mother she loved and adored. Her hand were bleeding, thankfully, it did not seem too serious. As she heard the shouting from behind, she closed her eyes shut. She kept telling herself it was not her mother, to keep the guilt away from her.

Applejack came to a halt as soon as she opened her eyes. It was no longer a farm, but an abandoned building. Her sorrow was replaced by curiosity. How did I get here? What? She thought. I didn’t see this when I was walking towards the farm.

"Huh?" She looked around. "Ah come on, what now?"

She heard a stallion chuckle from the right. She turned to look at him and found a stallion sitting on a chair with his feet on a small table.

"Hey there, girl." The stallion smugly greeted her. "Remember me?"

Applejack raised her eyebrow. "No? Who are ya? Ah don't reckon seeing you before."

"Ah guess it doesn't matter." He stood up and glanced at her wound. "You look hurt, here let me patch ya up."

As the stallion approached her and bandaged her wound, Applejack's eyes widened as she recognized him. She have seen his face before.

When Applejack was a filly, she and Big Mac would take an annual trip with their parents to visit Braeburn and his family.

But there is one time, however........

Applejack was shopping with her mother inside the general store, she was looking for a souvenir.

It was a peaceful time for Appleloosa. It was after her second rodeo in her life.

Applejack looked around. There were so many objects she wanted to take home. Toys, colorful postcards, local food. Applejack always has to admit Appleloosans make good food. But the thing that caught her eyes was the brown stetson hat.

“Ma!” Applejack’s mother turned to her. “Can ah have this?”

“I thought you wanted postcards and food.” Her mother smiled as she took the hat from her before handing it to the cashier.

“Ah wanted them. But I like this hat more than them.” Applejack smiled.

Suddenly, she heard something outside. It sounded like someone was running away, in terror. She heard gunshots and ponies screaming. Two lumbering figures was outside the store. The taller, muscular one kicked the door opened, followed by a thinner, shorter one.

"Hand me every valuables ya have! Unless you want some lead!" The bandits aimed their revolvers at the clerk, Applejack, and her mother.

Applejack hid behind her mother as she cowered in fear.

"We don't have anything to give!" The store clerk begged. "Please!"

Her words fell on deaf ears as one of them mercilessly shot her in the head. Her body slammed against the counter. Applejack was shivering in fear.

"Now, lady!" The taller one aimed at Applejack's mother. "If ya don't want ta-"

A voice interrupted him.

"Nopony touches my wife and my child!" The bandits looked behind them and saw Applejack's father, with Big Mac and Sheriff Silverstar.

"Well, what do we got here?" The shorter bandit taunted. "Sheriff Silverstar and some white knights! Ya know it's best not to get yourself into this kind of trouble. Eh, Mr. Sheriff?"

The taller one spoke up. "If ya want to see both of their names on the obituaries. You got it!"

"Over my dead body," Silverstar growled.

Both of them laughed. Suddenly, two yellow earth ponies tackled them from behind. They were Braeburn and his father. They were hiding in the buildings next to the store.They both overpowered the thieves as Applejack's father and the Sheriff ran in to help. The Sheriff successfully put the handcuffs on the taller one. Applejack's father ran up to his wife and his daughter. His wife ran out of the store with her husband holding his filly in his hands.

The shorter thief punched Braeburn in the face and saw Applejack's father running, he aimed at him and shot him in the head. He grinned as the stallion fell onto the ground.

"DAAAAAAAD!" Applejack cried. She raised her head and saw the thief getting handcuffed by the Sheriff.

Applejack now remembered him. That stallion in front of her was a bandit. Who care not about other’s feeling. Sometimes, he even murders ponies just for the sake of his amusement.

"It's you," Applejack glared daggers at him.

"C'mon, the past is the past. Forget it, ah got arrested." Applejack punched him in the face. She was filled to the brim with rage. "And ah just helped you!

"It doesn't matter! Ya killed my parents! Ya killed my mother.....alive!" She grabbed him by his collar and threw him against the wall.

"Ya want it that bad, huh?" He pointed at the table. A pistol was sitting on it. "Well, then, shoot me. I dare ya."

Applejack wasted no time grabbing it. Once she turned to face him with the gun, the entire area disappeared. Around her was nothing but the void. His taunting laugh was heard. Applejack looked around to find its source, but it seemed to come from everywhere.

"Ya think it's goin' to be that easy?"

The area around her changed again. It was a huge area with multiple stone pillars with white tiles serving as the floor. The area seemed to be endless, the sky above her resembled a cloudy afternoon.

Applejack turned her head around. She saw his shadow in the distance, she quickly ran towards it.

While she was running, she heard a sound from the right. She turned to it and saw him. He had a gun and fired at her. She quickly hid behind a pillar.

She peeked and saw him. She fired at him, but he disappeared in black smoke before her bullet could hit him. He laughed at her again.

She flinched as she heard a bullet zipping past her. She turned right and saw him again. As he fired his next shot, she crouched to dodge it and fired at him. He disappeared into a black smoke, again.

Suddenly, she felt a hand touching her shoulder. She quickly turned around. He was there again. She punched the pistol out of his hand and shot him point blank. And he disappeared, again.

Applejack's seething anger caused her to groan in frustration. His taunting laugh that echoed throughout the place fueled her anger even more.

She looked around and saw him in duplicates surrounding her, ready to fire. She fired at them, one by one. But the bullets appeared to hit a glass in front of her and around her.

"Huh?" Applejack calmed down a bit and inspect it. She slid her hand around the 'glass'. They are mirrors. When did they appeared around her? It turned out the fact that she was surrounded was an illusion.

The area around her changed again. Now she was in some sort of hospital. Applejack groaned in frustration. "Coward."

Applejack walked down the hallway, she saw something in the distance. Blinded by rage, she assumed it was the stallion she was looking for. She chased him down.

"GET BACK HERE!" She ran towards the shadow as it ran away.

She ran into the ward. The hallway was well lit. She aimed her gun and look around.

"You're a persistent bastard, ain't ya?" She looked around. Suddenly, a shot was fired. It missed and hit the wall next to her. Applejack saw him at the end of the hallway, she quickly turned left and opened the door to a ward and used it as cover.

She peeked and retracted as a bullet hit the side of the door. She fired three shots at him in return. He flee and ran away immediately.

"Ah ain't done with ya yet!" She ran after him, she turned the corner and saw him pushed a double door opened and ran into a room. She quickly followed him, she aimed her pistol left and right. She slowly walked around the room, it appeared to be a small waiting room with rows of seats, a counter and four doors leading to the rooms.

She looked around and saw one door slightly opened. She slowly walked towards it and kicked it opened. The Thief aimed at her but Applejack fired first. She shot his pistol off his hand.

He cowered in fear.

"What yer gonna do now?" Applejack smirked. "You deserve what's comin' to ya."

He grabbed a nearby surgical tray and threw it at her. Applejack covered her face as it hit her arms. He then pushed a small cart at her, Applejack fell down and dropped her gun.

As he started to run away, she quickly dashed towards him and grabbed him by his shirt. She punched him multiple times that blood came out of his mouth. She then threw him back into the room.

He was trying to crawl away, but Applejack grabbed his head and slammed him against the wall. She quickly grabbed the pistol and pinned him against the wall. His face was close to hers and the gun was touching his forehead. His tears was rolling down his face.

"Goodbye." Applejack readied her finger on the trigger. "Forever."

"Applejack!" She sobbed. "Please....."

Wait.....she? Applejack blinked. She was holding about to shoot Rarity, not the thief. She gasped in shock as she quickly backed away from her.

"Rarity?" She could not believe it, she was actually chasing after Rarity and was brutally punching her. She slowly approached her and hugged her. "It wasn't me. It wasn't me." Applejack started to cry too.

"Why did you do that?" Rarity asked. Still crying. "I saw you and you started shooting me in all of sudden."

"I saw you as....." Applejack sniffed. ".....someone else." That also raised one question about Applejack. If she was shooting Rarity, where did all the bullets came from? She could have swore they felt so real.

"Here." She picked Rarity up and put her on the operating bed. She sighed. "Ah'll go look if there's anythin' to help us. We'll rest for a while.
