I felt an unbearable sadness, as I witnessed that landscape - Solo Wing Pixy

Pixy groaned as he awoke from his sleep. A reporter had just left, interviewing him about the events during a war he wished he could just forget about. Though Pixy can't say he knows how he found him. He was glad he did, oddly enough being interviewed about it gave a therapeutic sense of closure for him. He looked around the run down room he hunkered in for the night, water from the rain outside made the distinct sound drop, drop, drop. Pixy then proceeded to get up and crack his back.

"Ahh, yea that's the stuff right there", he groaned in pleasure, while the cot he was sleeping on was not as bad as some of the surfaces Pixy has slept on, it certainly was no Hilton.

"Guess it's time to get moving, the border is about five miles from here.", Pixy said to himself as he put on his shirt and jacket. He grabbed his AK-47 which was hanging on the wall. Another war had broken out throughout the continent. So Pixy had to be careful or else he may be mistaken for a soldier with his AK-47. Perhaps it would have been better to make the trek unarmed, but Pixy knew that the local insurgents just across the border were very unfriendly to any foreigners. Especially Belkans. Then considering how close he was to the border, going unarmed was just as dangerous. Regardless he was dead set on getting to that border. It's all that has had him going the past few months. To visit every border on the continent, the world, it was the only motivation he had in order to get up in the morning. As he put on his boots and stepped out the ruins of the home he slept in that night. He set forth on his journey to find his next border.


As Pixy kept his walk to the border between Erusua and Delarus. Perhaps his journey to find a type of closure was a fool's errand. What he did, well he knew many wouldn't have survived... He just rubbed his head as he kept walking, he looked at the sky as he moved down the old road. A smile crept to his face as he reminisced about his days being a fighter pilot. It had been years since he flew in those old skies, yet not a day went by that he hasn't thought about it. His thoughts then returned the philosophical reasoning on to why he even was on this journey. Borders. Years spent, simply traveling to different countries to see every border. Why the hell, am I still doing this?, Pixy thought to himself as he halted in the road.

Perhaps the world doesn't need borders, but would getting rid of them really change anything? Sure we can cut all territorial ties between countries but a cultural division would still remain. You can't whisk away, thousands of years of prejudice and hatred. The deep religious ties and beliefs that conflicted with each other. The world would be a better place if everyone trusted one another., Pixy thought to himself. A long sigh then escaped his body as he continued to walk. But... That'll never happen... At least not in my lifetime. Maybe there's the answer I've been looking for for all these years..." All the borders he's seem, all he has ever asked himself was,

Why do you exist?

Maybe he knew now that the real reason they existed, it wasn't to cause war and chaos. Rather, to cause a facade of security and peace. What better way to live your life, than to never meet someone who doesn't share your beliefs? As long as people live their life their way, the way they desire. They would be content with it for rest of their miserable lives, they wouldn't care if they were born in and died in the same square mile. As long as they believed they were safe.

Pixy grimaced at that thought, Hell of a bittersweet lesson.

Pixy was approaching, the final border in his quest to travel to every border on the planet. It had taken him years, and though his final lesson on it may not have been 100% satisfying. Maybe those beliefs were enough, or at least that's what he's come to believe. Maybe now he could finally return to his homeland, of Belka. Find a nice girl, and settle down, get a job doing something, though flying was out of the picture. He doubted he could ever return to the sky after what happened during the war. He enjoyed working on his F-15C back in the day. He customized it pretty heavily, it wasn't a normal F-15C, it had some of the most advanced aerodynamic systems money could buy. That jet could hold such slow speeds it could essentially hover while he strafed his targets of course he couldn't hold if for long, it would stall after a few seconds. Then again, a few seconds was all he needed.

"I wonder what happened to her...", Pixy said to no one in particular, after the war he left it behind, it didn't really matter now though, he wasn't flying ever again. Especially not in that jet, an F-15C couldn't even keep up in today's world. With all these new stealth fighters and such, it would be like flying an F-4 Phantom back during the war he fought in. An F-15C was in his opinion the greatest jet of all time, but he knew the odds of an F-15C beating a F-22 or T-50 in a dogfight was minimal at least.

As Pixy kept thinking to himself over his lost F-15C, he didn't even notice he had reached the border. It was funny actually, he looked around and saw no one in sight, just a small abandoned guard post by the road. Everyone must have evacuated because of the war... ,Pixy thought. He was essentially in the flat end of no where, and with the 15 mile trip warring on him, he decided to take a quick rest. He went into the abandoned guard station, and found to his pleasure a bottle of whiskey and a nice leather chair. He sat down and rested his trusty AK-47 on the wall, and cracked open the bottle. It tastes pretty dusty, but hell, after 5 years of traveling, I'll take it. I'm pretty sure from here I can go straight into Eras-, Pixy was thinking when suddenly he heard the distant hum of an engine. He quickly sat up and grabbed his AK-47, turned off the safety and sat behind the wall. God please don't let them be insurgents, and if by you by some damn sense of karma make them, don't let them stop., he thought in his mind. He looked up, Yep insurgents, damn it. he hid back down when the truck came to a stop You've gotta be kidding me!, he thought to himself as he rolled his eyes. When he heard 5 distinct male voices.

"Jacob go check that guard post for anything useful for scrap. We are gonna need every bit for new weapons", said the leader, or what Pixy guessed was the leader.

Oh come on! This is just getting ridiculous! , Pixie thought to himself as he gripped his AK-47.

As the man, who was apparently Jacob started moving towards the guard station Pixie had to think quickly, Erusua was not a country known to be friendly to non-Erusuans. Plus considering these were Insurgents they were going to shoot on sight. His best bet was to surprise attack them, pop and spray them down. Pixy took a deep breath and suddenly popped up and pointed at them and shouted,


To his surprise everyone did freeze though probably just in shock, but however that soon wore off as they then raised their weapons and started to fire. Pixy ducked down and took cover as they started firing. He raised up and started firing back, taking down one of the insurgents who was hiding behind the car. Before a lone bullet hit him in the shoulder,

"Damn it, that hurts!" he cursed to himself before he got back up and started laying down more fire on the truck, hitting the tires, since he may as well make the journey to town harder since he was dying anyway, Damn, so close to home too, he thought. When finally one other bullet hit him straight in the gut, causing him to fall down to the ground, but he still had some fight left in him. As he remembered he had a small frag grenade in his left pouch. He took it out bit them pin and tossed it shouting through a pained voice,

"Take that you Eruasian bastards!", as he then heard a loud explosion followed by the screams of the men who had to be dead, Pixy layed there in a pool of his blood. He then hunched himself up on the wall. A lot of things rushed through his head as he sat there bleeding out, he thought of his family, he thought of Belka, he thought of the war. He wondered if when he died, he could fly. He chuckled at the thought of flying with the angels.

He then violently coughed which made him flinch in pain, the large hole in his gut didn't make any movement come without great pain. He dragged himself outside so he could possibly see the sky one last time before he went and joined his mother and father. Groaning as he pulled himself outside he looked around and saw the five insurgents dead, but he paid no mind to them, instead he just focused on one little cloud that reminded him of a, large turtle. When suddenly a large bolt of a rainbow colored lighting struck Pixy squarely in the face which then was met with blackness.


Pixy woke up suddenly in a large field gasping for air. He quickly checked his stomach for bleeding, but found nothing. Am I dead? he thought to himself. What else could this be? It had to be the afterlife, he was no longer in the flat end middle no where. He was on a low lying hill surrounded by... Burn marks? He stood up, quickly noticing his AK-47 missing, and took a quick survey. A black ring surrounded him, it looked as if there was an explosion... And he was the epicenter of it? He then quickly slapped himself in the face to make sure he wasn't dead or in some type of coma, but instead found just the burning stinging sensation of a slap.

Ok, Larry you seen some pretty crazy things in your years but, what the actual hell is this! , he thought

He looked around using his skills of navigation and found that it was sometime around midday. He decided to head down hill, that's where he would find water, and where you find water, you find civilization. He started walking down the low lying hills towards a tree line. He made a few observations as well, one the air was way too clean, he hadn't breathed air like this since he was a little boy in Belka. Also the environment was a blush green forest, which was odd considering he was just in a wasteland a few moments ago. Also the world around him looked almost... Animated? The colors just seemed way too pastel.

He made it to the tree line and kept his solid pace when he heard two feminine voices, Thank god, people, maybe they know where I am., he thought. However when he pushed through the bushes he found not two women like he was expecting, but two horses? He then made eye contact with two horses, that very obviously were not normal, considering one had a coat of yellow and a mane of pink. And the other had a rainbow colored mane and cyan coat?

"What in the name of hell?!"

"What in the name of hay?!"

"You talk?!", both Pixy and the rainbow maned one said together,

"Ya of course!", the both said together again, looking at each other with eyes that were both increasing in size.

"Okay hold on here before my head completely shuts down, where in the hell am I?!", Pixy asked fearing the answer.

"Equestria, where else?", the rainbow one said confused,

That is when Pixy's body decided to shut down from both the exhaustion of nearly dying and finding out he was in some strange purgatory called Equestira, which was inhabited by talking horses.


*Beep*, *Beep*, *Beep*, Pixy groaned as he heard the trademark sound of a hospital room. He must have been found after he was shot, and someone taken to the hospital in time before he died of complete blood loss. Well, at least I'm not dead., Pixy thought as he closed his eyes tightly at the bright lights. Before then sighing and opening them and seeing a white tiled ceiling. He perched himself up and somehow felt no pain in his stomach area. Odd, there isn't any pain, I must be on some serious pain killers., Pixy thought before looking at his stomach and seeing no scar where he was shot. Okay something is wrong!, Pixy started to panic as he tried to remember the events that led to him arriving in this hospital. The guard station, the insurgents, the gunshot wound, and a... field? Pixy's head started to throb as he recalled waking in a field and seeing a group of horses... Horses.... Horses? HORSES?!

Pixy immediately called out, "NURSE! ANYONE! HELP!"

When suddenly a white horse with a cross on its backside came in,

"Yes? Is there anything you need?"

Pixy then started mumbling a lot of words very quickly, then somehow managing to get out

"You talk!?"

"Why, yes I do, and if you don't mind me asking, what exactly are you?", the white horse said curiously.

"What do you mean what am I?!", Pixy said panicking, as his heart rate started to increase.

"Well, no offense I've never seen a creature like you before, I assume you're from across the ocean?", she asked eyeing a clipboard.

"Listen lady, I don't know what you're talking about, because firstly you're a talking horse, and secondly I am definitely not from across an ocean, I have absolutely no idea where I am, and frankly I am assuming I am dead and this is some crazy purgatory.", Pixy said trying to rationalize his surroundings.

"Well I can assure you, you're not dead, your heart beat monitor over to your left confirms that", the nurse said gesturing to the heart beat monitor next to Pixy, before then continuing, "And you're in Equestria, and don't pass out again, please. One other thing I'm a pony, not a horse, that's extremely racist you giant monkey.", she dead panned.

"What do you mean don't pass out again?", Pixy asked, still rapidly looking around with a nervous look in his eyes.

"Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy the ponies who brought you in, said you fainted after Rainbow Dash told you were in Equestria.", she said before looking back down at her check board.

"Oh hell, so it is true, I died.", Pixy said putting his face in his hands.

"No, we were just over that sir, you're very much alive, but I can tell you have some questions, fortunately for you, another pony named Twilight Sparkle is here to see you, she will answer any questions you may have, and I am assuming she has some for you as well.", the nurse said before looking up at him.

"What about my health, before I came here I had a bad wound in my stomach.", Pixy inquired still not fully understanding how he wasn't dead.

"Well when Rainbow and Fluttershy brought you in you had no obvious injuries besides a mild concussion from your head landing on a rock. You did happen to be missing a bit of blood, however your levels have balanced themselves out, we'll keep you for another night, but then you are free to go.", she said before starting to walk out then stopping, "Hey by the way, what's your name giant monkey?"

"Larry, but everyone just calls me Solo Wing Pixy or Pixy for short.", he said to her.

"That is an odd name, you don't have wings and you're not a pixy.", she said looking at him.

` "Well it's a long story, I'll be sure to tell you it sometime buddy, oh and I'm not a monkey, I'm a human.", he said feeling suddenly feeling a migraine come on, "Oh and hey what about you?"

"Redheart, Nurse Redheart, good to meet you Pixy", she said.

"Likewise Doc and thanks for patching me up", Pixy said to her as she left. When he then heard Redheart say to someone else that he's ready, but don't kill him with questions girls. Pixy then felt a very horrific feeling in the pit of his stomach. It reminded of him the times he was about to be hit by a missile in his jet, that really bad ominous feeling as if you have someone grabbing your insides and squeezing. When suddenly a pink blur suddenly appeared in his face, before Pixy had a chance to react he was overcome with a huge sprung of pink hair in his face and a long string of words that he doubted the best scholars couldn't decipher. Plus... an odd cupcake smell?

"HiwhatsyournameI'mPinkiePieandyou'renewandifyou'renewthanthatmeansyouneedtohaveapartyohnoIbettergodothatbyenicemeetingyou!", the creature from hell said before dissipating as fast as it has come.

"What in the name of god...", Pixie said breathing heavily and holding onto the sides of his bed. Before looking up and seeing the two horses from earlier enter the room, along with three other ones that were purple with purple hair, white with purple hair, and orange with yellow hair. When the purple one spoke,

"Hello, would you mind if I ask you a few questions?", she asked with a hint of trepidation.

"Uh, sure?", Pixy said eyeing the motley group of horses that just entered the room.

"Please excuse the bluntness Mr...?", the purple one began, asking for Pixy's name.

"Larry Foulke, people call me Solo Wing Pixy though, or Pixy for short.", Pixy said repeating himself.

"Alright Pixy, as I said, please excuse the bluntness but what are you?", the purple one asked.

"Could ask you the same lady, but to answer, I'm a human or homo sapien...", Pixy said trailing off as he became lost in the tiles of the hospital ceiling.

"Hu-Man?", the purple one said chewing on the word.

"Just human lady, no pause. Now, a quick question for you, who and what are you?", Pixy said, hopeful to finally get some answers.

"Of course, my apologies my name is Twilight Sparkle I'm a pony, these are my friends Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Apple Jack, Rarity, and Fluttershy", Twilight said gesturing to her 5 friends before continuing, "There's another Pinkie Pie, but she ran off after that... greeting", Twilight said.

"Right...", Pixy said trailing off eyeballing the five suspiciously.

"Hey what are you looking at!", the Rainbow one said with a raspy tomboyish voice.

"Rainbow, that is no way to greet a guest!", a posh refined voice said coming from the white coated pony.

"Soooorrrry", Rainbow said exaggerating the word, before continuing, "Doesn't change the fact that we have no idea what this thing is, or what it wants. It could be some alien invader!", Rainbow said staring daggers at Pixy.

"Rainbow, I'm sure he's not an alien invader, right Mr. Pixy", the yellow coated one asked Pixy.

"I-", was all Pixy got to say before he was interrupted by a thick accented drawl from the orange coated pony started.

"Rainbow it still don't change the fact ya'll are being rude!"

"I really don-", Pixy started before getting interrupted by Twilight.

"GIRLS! Please I'm trying to question him!", she yelled at her friends while pointing at the human who was sitting in his bed staring incredulously at the group..

Pixy just sighed and put his face in his hands Christ, it's like I found a community inhabited by all the six year old little sisters of the world.

"Now, Mr. Pixy can you please tell us how you come to Equestria?, Twilight asked preparing to take notes.

"Well, where do I begin...", Pixy started as he turned his head towards Twilight, before continuing. "I was headed towards a border between two countries back on my planet Strangereal. When I got into a heated firefight with the local insurgents, after I was on the ground dying, I closed my eyes, felt a sharp searing pain, and woke up in a field...", Pixy finished leaving out a few key details, such as how he killed the five insurgents.

"I'm sorry, but firefight? As in you fought with fire? Can you use magic?!", Twilight asked suddenly very excited.

"Is that supposed to be some type of joke?", Pixy asked with a raised eyebrow, before finishing, "A firefight, you know guns, shooting, the whole shtick?", Pixy said moving his hands for emphasis.

"Guns...?", Twilight asked clearly not understanding what Pixy was talking about.

"Yea, guns, you know pew pew", Pixy said gesturing his hands as if he was holding a firearm.

"No, nothing I know of in Equestria matches that.... In-depth description", Twilight said shaking her head.

"Well, definitely not on Strangereal.", Pixy said rubbing his forehead, before a sudden realization hit him. "What a minute... What was that magic thing you guys were talking about!?"

"Magic dummy, can't you see the horns on Twilight and Rarity's noggins?", Rainbow Dash said rolling her eyes.

"Rainbow, darling, you always did know how to make a first impression.", Rarity said staring at blankly.

"Look I don't know what you guys are talking about, but where I'm from, Magic, it doesn't even kinda exist...", Pixy explained looking Twilight with raised eyebrows.

"Strange... Here in Equestria magic is very common. Every form of pony exhibits at least a variation of it. Earth Ponies such as Apple Jack use it to control the soil, Pegasi like Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy use it to fly and control the weather, while Unicorns such as myself and Rarity use it concentrated out of our horns.", Twilight explained to Pixy.

"Yeaaaa...", Pixy said trailing on the word, before shaking his head and continuing. "Anyway where was I...? Oh yea, I woke up in a field in what appeared to be the epicenter of a large explosion and wandered my way to those two over there", gesturing to Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy, "Blacked out and woke up here.", Pixy said finally tapping his fingers on the side of the bed, before biting his lip and continuing, "Listen not to sound rude or anything, but do you have any idea what the hell is going on?", Pixy said hoping for real answers.

"To be honest with you, no. I have no idea how you came to this world. Talk of inter-dimensional travel has always existed in our scientific community, but no real progress on it has been made since Starswirl The Bearded's days. It sounds like you lived on one of these extra-dimensional plains and some type of extreme magical disruption, caused a fission in the fabric of the dimensions. Which led you here.", Twilight said pausing then continuing. "Bad news is, I haven't the faintest idea what caused the disruption, nor how to replicate it, nor how to find your specific dimension. Which means-", Twilight said before Pixy interrupted here

"Which means I'm stuck here...", Pixy said groaning and then having a long winded sigh, before mumbling "Yea sure, why not retire in pony land... Why the hell not..."

"Good news is, I'm not the leading expert in the field of magic in Equestria, the two princesses, Celestia and Luna are far more experienced and knowledgeable than I.", Twilight said optimistically

"Alright, great when do I meet them", Pixy said perking up.

"Bad news... They're both on a diplomatic mission in the Griffon Imperium and won't be back for at least a week.", Twilight said sympathetically

"Yep, should have figured...", Pixy impassively, then continuing "So... What do I do until then?"

"Well... you'll be released from the hospital tomorrow, and for your sleeping situation, I suppose you can stay with me in the town library until the Princesses arrive, and worst case scenario and they can't send you home, I'll help you find more permanent arrangements.", Twilight said.

"Okay then, looks like it's settled... I don't suppose you have any more questions?", Pixy said hopefully.

"Oh plenty more", Twilight said rolling her head, but then seeing Pixy's face paused and then continued, "But... you need to rest, so I'll follow up on any questions tomorrow when I pick you up here in the morning.", Twilight said much to Pixy's gratification.

"Sounds good to me, guess I'll talk to you all later then.", Pixy said looking at the group.

"Absolutely, we'll talk to you later.", Twilight said leaving the room.

"Goodbye alien invader", Rainbow said walking out and waving.

"Get better sugar cube", Apple Jack said walking out.

"Do get better darling, and meet me at my store so we can fix those dreadful garments you're in.", Rarity said to which Pixy eyeballed his jacket.

What's wrong with my jacket...? It's a nice jacket!

"Feel better Mr. Pixy", Fluttershy said kindly as she walked out.

Pixy gave a nod in thanks to the group as he looked out the window to the side of his bed, to see the sun just start to set over the horizon. "Damn... What are the odds.. Still, I can think of worse places to retire, the lack of human championship is gonna suck, but hey I've lived the past five years with minimal contact with the outside world... I'll survive... And damn if that isn't the most beautiful sunset I've ever seen.", Pixy said cracking a toothy smile, before furrowing his brow,

"Still though... This is new."

I met him above this very sky. I can still hear the sounds of the missile alerts from that day... - Altman Squad Leader

The sun started to peak it's head over the horizon as Pixy's eyes began to open. He was used to waking up at the crack of dawn, a little habit he hasn't been able to drop from boot camp. He took a gander at the wall clock and saw it read 7:00 AM. 0700, man if old Sergeant Sigel saw me waking up this late, I'd be scrubbing the toilets for weeks..., Pixy thought to himself as he picked himself up the bed. He cracked his neck only to be met with a loud audible POP. He looked around his room for a moment and saw it was empty, he couldn't even hear the sounds of footsteps in the hall. Must be a small hospital, no way a city hospital wouldn't have the staff wandering this early., Pixy mused to himself before looking out the window.

"Damn... That's a sunrise if I ever seen one.", Pixy sounded astonished as he looked out to the horizon. The sun was just rising, and the sky was a brilliant shade of purple and orange. He couldn't help but remember a morning he had that was similar with his sister, it felt like a life time ago for Pixy. He shook his head to clear the thoughts before picking himself up. He stretched his back a bit before yanking out the IV that was in his arm. He cringed just a tad, Pixy hated needles since he was a child. He thought back to the other day, Right, the alternate dimension with horses being a sentient species... I seriously need a drink. He walked to a book case that was on the wall across the room from his bed. He quickly looked over what was on the book case, nothing he'd really want to read, mainly just educational books like an Encyclopedia. Then again, who knows when those things that were talking to me will be back, might not be bad idea to brush up on some History, Captain always said know your enemy. While Pixy did't recognize the talking horses as threats, you can't ever be too careful. After all if an alien landed back on Strangeworld it'd be dissected and studied.

"Might as well start at A.", Pixy sighed to himself as he walked back to his bed and plopped down and began to read...


Pixy's eyes actually began to hurt from the amount of reading that was the encyclopedia set. He skimmed most of it, and really only read the ones with pictures, still, at least he knew a little bit about the world in which he know found himself. That way he won't look like a complete moron when talking to the purple horse who should be arriving any minute. He was flipping through the pages on the E section when he saw a passage that caught his eye.

Elements of Harmony? The hell?

He started to read the passage and as he kept reading his eyes just kept getting wider. This is like some type of super weapon? A rainbow blast that eliminated two of the most powerful beings on this world? On that note, what kind of names are Discord and Nightmare Moon? Christ, its like Ana came up with these names.. Then he found something that really caught his attention.

Wait a second, these elements are represented by people, er horses, or ponies, whatever. He thought shaking his head, before continuing, and looking at a photo of the seven element bearers,

"Holy hell those are the horses I saw yesterday!", Pixy accidentally said out loud.

"Ponies, and yes, yes they were.", Twilight said leaning on the door frame.

"Oh, I'm sorry I didn't see you there" Pixy said before sitting up in his bed.

"No, its alright, I of all ponies know what it's like to get caught up in a good read. Even if that read is an Encyclopedia. A bit dry, even for my tastes." Twilight said trotting over to Pixy.

"Yea, well I figured I might as well get a little bit of information about this world considering I may be staying here for a while.", Pixy said putting the book on the night stand next to his bed.

"I'd probably do the same if I were you. Can't be easy, waking up in a different dimension that is." Twilight said sympathetically.

"Could be worse I guess. Area around here is beautiful, air is clean, people are nice. Seems like a paradise compared to mine at least.", Pixy said as he stood up and went to the window.

"What was your world like Larry?", Twilight said using his real name.

"Christ, where do I begin...?", Pixy said trailing off.

"How about where you're from?", Twilight said encouraging him.

"That question has a longer answer than you're guessing I bet." Larry said with a chuckle before sitting down on his bed, then continuing, "Well I'm from a planet we called Strangereal. I was from a country known as Belka. Though I don't really classify myself as Belkan or show any sort of nationalistic pride I guess."

"Why's that?", Twilight inquired as she turned back towards Pixy who was sitting on his bed flipping through the encyclopedia.

"Belka doesn't exactly have the best reputation. They... We're known for being warmongers. You know the story, tiny country swelling with nationalistic pride gets into a war with the rest of the Continent. Country gets beaten, they get punished severely. Then radical nationalistic leaders start scapegoating people. Country industrializes heavily, builds a huge military. Country attempts to get back at those who "stole" their land. They have huge success at first, using fast and brutally efficient fast attacks. Then suddenly the fast attacks don't work anymore. Suddenly their enemies started to band together to fight back, then said country, get beaten back by an allied coalition... That's Belka... More or less.", Pixy said exasperated, Probably a good idea to leave out how we dropped nukes on our own land to curve the allied advances.

"Well, I can't say I do know that story all to well", Twilight said. "Did you fight on those wars?" Twilight asked.

"Not the first one, I was a bit too young, but yea, I did fight in the second one, which was called the Belkan War back where I'm from", Pixy stated cautious of how the conversation might go.

"Must have been hard, fighting a war for a losing side.", Twilight said with sympathy.

"We didn't lose." Pixy stated blankly.

"But you said Belka lost the war?", Twilight said clearly confused.

"You're right I did, but I didn't fight for Belka during the Belkan War.", Pixy said looking away from her.

"Wait, you're saying you fought against your homeland in that war?!", Twilight said shocked.

"It isn't what it sounds like, trust me, I got quite a few looks too back then." Pixy sighed before finishing his thought, "I had... I had a difficult childhood. My parents, we got into a really, really bad fight. Screaming and throwing things bad. I told them I would never become the man they wanted me to be. So I left Belka, I packed my bags went to Osea, a neighboring country. I learned how to fly, and became a mercenary pilot. When the war broke out, I was hired by the Utsio government, which was a small country that Belka was invading. Me and my wingman both signed on and I did my job, and I got paid.", Pixy said not daring to finish the story of how that war went.

"That's... That's quite the origin story Pixy."Twilight said shaking her head in mild disbelief.

"One thing I've learned in my life Twilight, everyone has a story. Some with a good ending, others not so much." Pixy said wisely to which Twilight could only agree to.

"Still though, you were so ready to fight against your family?" Twilight asked, before realizing how rude that question came across and how offensive it could be taken. "Larry, I'm so sorry I didn't mean it like that." she said blushing.

"No, it's okay Twilight you're just asking questions" Pixy said before getting really quiet. He looked away at the window finding a tree out in the field really interesting in that moment before sighing and turning back to Twilight. "One day, I'll tell you about what happened between me and my family. When that day comes, I'm going to need some drinks." Larry quipped with a small smirk to which Twilight giggled at glad he wasn't too upset at her question. She looked down at her notes and looked back up with a question that was bugging her since the beginning of their conversations.

"You keep saying Air Forces, and pilots, and aces. You don't have any wings despite your moniker. How do you fly?", Twilight asked writing on a yellow legal pad.

"Well we don't have wings like your blue and yellow friends. We do however have very creative scientists and engineers who find ways to fly. We invented mach, maines using technology, not magic, to fly for us. I, as a pilot, would fly these machines. They could be used for a variety of reasons, transporting people, supplies, recon. Or in my case, to fight other aircraft or ground forces." Pixy explained to her.

"What exactly did they machines look like Pixy?"

"Here let me see that pencil and paper real fast.", Pixy said as he was handed the supplies from Twilight. "Now I'm no artist, but I do know one plane's design as if it was the back of my hand. The one I'm drawing was the one I flew, called the F-15C Fighter Jet.

"Wow! That's amazing. It's brilliant! The curvature of the metal, the sloped wings, the domed glass! Larry your species must be geniuses!" Twilight said gazing at Larry's drawing.

"Ya we were pretty damn good at making planes. Funny enough, that jet right there, is outdated back on my world. Even newer ones have been created that are 10x more advanced." Pixy said looking at his drawing along with Twilight.

"But how does it fly? I mean, that much steel, and alloys much weigh tons?!", Twilight as she looked over the drawing.

"Well, like I said I'm not exactly the most qualified person to explain this. Basically, see those little things in the back over there." Pixy said pointing towards the engines. "Those are called jet engines, now they use combustion using oil, to create thrust. They create so much thrust, almost 1875 miles per hour, or Mach 2.5 that it propels it into the air. Those wings on the side have little flippers that move up and down to move the air around it to make it go up or down. The wings over here stabilize it so it moves straight. You have to keep it moving at a certain speed though. Again, I didn't exactly ace physics, but they meet air resistance and other factors refereed to as Drag. If your thrust is meeting or exceeding the drag then your jet stalls. Which means it's not moving fast enough to sustain flight. It then falls to the ground, and if you're not a very good pilot, it could crash. Possibly killing you.", Pixy said happy to talk about his passion with someone who loved hearing about it.

"Pixy, in five minutes you just thew our aviation knowledge forward hundreds of years. This! This can do so much good! Imagine the practical aspects of it! Pegasi can only carry so much cargo, but with these! We can carry tons upon tons of supplies and trade goods across Equestria! Did you say it could fly at speeds of 1875 miles per hour?", Twilight said getting more and more excited.

"Yea, the F-15C can reach super sonic speeds up to 1875 miles per hour, or Mach 2.5" Pixy said reciting his old textbook.

"Pixy the average pegasus can barely go 200 miles per hour." Twilight said before stopping in complete shock.

"Like I said, we were good at making planes, how's fast is your fastest pegasus?

"In terms of pure speed? Rainbow Dash, without a shadow of the doubt" Twilight said firmly.

"And...?", Pixy asked wondering how fast that blue horse could actually go.

"Larry, Rainbow Dash can go 7,710 miles per hour, Mach 10 at her complete peak. "Twilight said with a small smirk on her face.

"Bullshit... No way.", Pixy said shaking his head in utter disbelief.

"Way!" Twilight said still with a huge smile on her face. She may be bullish and arrogant sometimes, but damn it made me proud that she was by far and away the fastest being in the world.

"You're telling me that little blue pony can fly at MACH 10?!?!" Pixy shouted. "That is insane! Our fastest, and I mean fastest, jet can go only at about Mach 6.7! Mach 10! That's hypersonic! We couldn't dream of going that fast!", Pixy shouted as he paced across the room.

"Dash is brash and cocky, but she has a basis for it.", Twilight said simply

"I guess so, damn, I don't think a human can go that fast without their body literally melting from the vibrations." Pixy said still shaking his head.

"She is an anomaly though. Most Pegasi can't even break the sound barrier. So don't worry you humans most likely have the advantage to us.", Twilight said as she looked over her notes from Pixy's explanation of basic aerodynamics.

"Twilight would you mind if I asked you a couple of questions?", Pixy said looking at her.

"Sure, I've been picking your brain all morning, it'd only be fair if you knew a little bit about ponies.", Twilight said putting aside her paper, "What would you like to know?"

"I don't know how exactly to phrase it, but you seemed kind of, I don't know, shocked maybe? When I said we have near constant warfare back on my planet. Has your country ever been to war?", Pixy said slowly.

"We have... Not many people know about this, the princesses try to keep any violence under wraps, but Equestria has been in quite a few wars. Not many recently, in the past hundred years or so we've at peace. Though recent political complications with the Griffin Imperium has made the Parliament nervous. A few months back a race known as the Changelings kidnapped the empress of the Crystal Empire. Replaced her, and attempted to assassinate Princess Celestia and Luna, then take over the capital Canterlot, then most likely over run Equestria." Twilight said to Pixy.

"I wish I could say our world was like that. Even if you still have wars, at least it isn't the constant fighting like back home... You know Twilight, I gotta say. If what you're telling me about Equestria is true, it looks like I found the perfect place to retire.", Pixy said stretching his neck.

"Are you saying you'd stay here even if we could find you a way home?", Twilight inquired.

"I don't know about that, but I guess what I'm saying is a clean, green, and peaceful country is a damn good way to ride off into the sunset." Pixy said. Plus no one here knows about what Solo Wing Pixy nearly did...

"Well Ponyville is a nice place to stay. It's small, rural, and friendly. Ponies might be a bit shy of a total stranger, and for all intents and purposes alien walking around town. They'll cope especially when they see you being friendly with the Elements of Harmony. Plus, I'm sure Princess Celestia and Luna will have no problem giving you citizenship." Twilight beamed at Pixy.

"You know speaking of that, what exactly are the Elements of Harmony? I was reading about it in that book, and I know that you and your friends represent them, but I still not sure exactly what it means.", Pixy asked.

"Well basically the Elements of Harmony are traits that represent Harmony. I represent the element of Magic, Applejack represents Honesty, Pinkie Pie; Laughter, Rarity; Generosity, Fluttershy; Kindness, and Rainbow Dash; Loyalty." Twilight explained, and didn't quite catch how Pixy subtly cringed at the word loyalty. "Together can harness and incredible power to defend harmony, and de facto Equestira."

"How powerful exactly is it?", Pixy asked.

"Honestly? I'm not quite sure the extent to the power of the Elements. So far they've managed to protect Equestria from Nightmare Moon and the god of chaos; Discord. So at least as powerful as the Princesses if not more.", Twilight explained.

"Huh.", Pixy said satisfied at the answer.

"Mhm, now then it's almost one 'o clock. I imagine you'd like to get out of here?" Twilight asked

"Oh yeah, I'm 100% ready to go.", Pixy said picking his jacket off of the chair.

"Right let's head out, I can sign you out of the hospital at the main lobby.

Pixy threw on his jacket and walked behind Twilight following her outside his room. Pixy enjoyed using his legs once more. That hospital bed was a bit too small for someone his height, and giving them a nice stretch did wonders for his muscles. They walked down the hospital steps to the main desk and Pixy saw Nurse Redheart working the desk.

"Good afternoon Ms. Redheart.", Pixy said to the nurse who patched him up.

"Good afternoon Mr. Pixy, how are you feeling" Redheart inquired.

"Much better, still have a bit of a headache but I'm sure it's nothing", Pixy said rubbing his scalp.

"That's good to hear, I don't expect that headache to go away for a couple of days, you did take quite a fall. Still, there was no significant brain damage so you should be fine." Redheart said to Pixy before looking at Twilight, "All ready to sign him out then Twilight?"

"Mhm, we're ready to go, and get Larry something to eat." Twilight said to Nurse Redheart as she signed the papers she was given. Thank Christ I'm starving., Pixy thought to himself.

"Alright looks good Twilight, you're all ready to go. Don't comeback anytime soon Pixy, I'd hate to see you banged up again." Redheart said to Pixy.

"I'll try not to Doc, and thanks again." Pixy said holding the door open for Twilight.

"Good to hear, bye you guys!" Redheart said waving to the two.

"Bye Doc!"

"Bye Nurse Red Heart!"

"Now then Twilight you said something about food?", Pixy said hopefully to Twilight.
