After a mishap with a new experimental power suit High Marshal Kyle Jenkins finds himself far outside human controlled space on a planet were the dominant life form seems to be pony’s that don’t seem to speak English or anything remotely close to it. And if that wasn’t problem enough after his disappearance all four of the main tribes start looking for him.
“Ten minutes until deployment.” a gruff male voice said over the deployment bays coms.
Blood Eagle High Marshal Jenkins sighed. He hated this war and everything it was about. It had been all he had ever known while growing up but he hated it. When the day came for him to finally enlist he considered killing himself. Now 8 years later he was one of the most regarded warriors in the Blood Eagle tribe for his ability. Fates funny that way, he hated war but turned out to be really good at it. The only reason he fought was so he could stay alive. He had been chosen to pilot a new medium armored solider suit. This new suit had more shielding than a Juggernaut, had its own thrust pack, short range teleportation, and utilized vehicle bay technology to allow him to summon up inventory stations and even repair bays and command posts. It even had an air tank for missions on airless planets or in space. Then to top it all off the suit looked no different from any normal soldier’s suit. There were two others a light armored pathfinder and heavy armored Juggernaut who also had these new suits that gave them specific ability’s. Rumor had it the Pathfinder could get up to five hundred miles per hour on the smallest of hills and that the Juggernaut could survive an orbital strike. Jenkins also had access to these suits but had tuned out what they could do during orientation.
“Five minutes until deployment.” The disembodied Ship Commanders voice said again.
Jenkins started going over what was going on in his head. He was in a Blood Eagle Super Carrier descending toward the plant Arx Novena which was under assault by all four of the main tribes. The Blood Eagles, Diamond Sword, Star Wolves and, the Children of the Phoenix. Arx Novena was a high priority target simply because of its geography. It had everything a human being would need to prosper. To top it off the planet was rich in minerals that could be used to make the power suits which all of the tribes used. The Super Carrier was going to be stopping over an extremely large mountain that had a half of it blown into oblivion by an orbital strike. The steep smooth slope the laser had created proved the perfect point to enter the battle at top speeds.
“Sixty seconds until deployment!” The Ship Commander shouted.
The massive amount of troops in the deployment bay started to ready themselves. Some getting onto Grav cycles others into shrikes. The bay door slowly opened showing a scene of complete chaos as ships battled in near orbit and all the little dots on the ground of men moving around near two hundred miles per hour in attempts to kill each other. “Deployment in five.” “Four.” “Three!” “Two!” “One!” “GO!” The lights at either side of the bay door turned green and the mass of Blood Eagle soldiers surged forward and jumped.
Jenkins jumped head first. Time seemed to move in slow motion as he fell. Looking around his vision was filled with red as countless other men dropped to the ground below.
Right before hitting the ground Jenkins flipped forward and activated his skis. Already going at two hundred miles per hour he used his thruster to gain even more speed and catch up the Pathfinders at the front of the pack. Hitting the tip natural ramp at the bottom he activated his jet pack and soared through the air looking for another hill to come down on. Not only did he spot a hill but his first victim. A Diamond Sword Sentinel standing on top of the hill he planned to land on was firing over at a building in the distance.
Jenkins hit the slope with his claw out and cleaved the entire right side of the sentinel’s stomach out and continued on at two hundred fifty miles per hour.
Jenkins was now gaining on a Diamond Sword soldier and took aim at him with his Spinfusor. The Spinfusor roared its signature revving sound as it shot a bright blue disk filled with plasma at the other solider.
The other solider saw this coming and jet packed out of the way then returned fire with his Thumper DX. The explosion hit a little to the left of Jenkins causing him to veer left and have to use his jetpack to get back on course. He then used his thrust pack and delivered an almost point blank disk of plasma to the other soldiers face. The enemy solider died almost instantly as the plasma ate through his helmet and skin.
A large splash of blue shot Jenkins forward as a disk exploded near his heels. A Brute was now gunning for him but quickly ran out of luck as Jenkins rocketed away. But this was not the direction he wanted to go. He was quickly approaching a Diamond Sword controlled command center and the men there were taking notice.
A Pathfinder flanked him on each side and in front of him he could see a blur of bullets as two Doombringers attempted to gun him down. A third waited there with a saber launcher waiting for him to get air born. They stood behind a vehicle bay were a Technician was deciding what to warp in.
Well no better time to try out that warp function Jenkins thought to himself. It began to charge as he grew ever closer to the 3 Doombringers wanting nothing more than to see him dead. His HUD showed that the teleportation was 85% charged and the Vehicle pad was about one hundred feet off.
“Come on almost there.” Jenkins whispered to himself.
He was directly over the Vehicle pad when two things happened at once. He activated the teleportation device and the Technician tried to warp in a vehicle.
Jenkins heard something that sounded like an explosion but the noise disappeared almost immediately and his vision became blurred. He couldn’t see anything and he couldn’t hear anything. “Am I dead?” He thought to himself until his vision began to clear up. Everything around him was black but there were white dots every were that looked like stars. Then he realized they were stars…and they were moving into and out of his vision alarmingly fast. The speed meter on his HUD didn’t show numbers. Instead they showed three blood red question marks.
“That can’t be good.” He muttered.
Then for a split second he saw a planet. I Second later it was all he could see and then blackness.
Jenkins woke up with a start. His whole body hurt but he sat up. Looking around he seemed to be in a large black crater that could have easily fit a Beowulf tank in it. The crater seemed to be in the middle of an incredibly dark forest. The only light came from the hole Jenkins made through the canopy and the trees he had uprooted upon his impact with the ground. He did a diagnostic on his suit and the teleportation device seemed to be fried and his energy pack seemed to have been damage so his energy stores had only recharged to two hundred and four. Everything else seemed to be fine but two hundred four wasn’t enough energy to warp in a repair center or anything for that matter.
Jenkins stood up and tested his coms hoping to maybe find some Blood Eagle ships or at least some Technicians to fix the suit. No good, nothing but static. Looking up he noticed the sunlight was getting dimmer.
“Well I guess I should try to find some shelter before night fall.” He sighed He could see a mountain north of him peeking over the tree tops.
“Were there’s mountains there’s caves.” He thought to himself as he started picking up his weapons that had fallen off him during impact. His Spinfusor, Thumper DX, and Eagle pistol were all accounted for. He then started off in the general direction of the mountain. The forest was unnaturally dark, not dark enough for night vision but dark enough to force him to turn on the built in lights in his helmet. All the way through he couldn’t shake the feeling he was being watched. He would jump at the sounds of branches being snapped and bushes being disturbed.
“You’re one of the best soldiers the Blood Eagles have and look at you jumping at the smallest of sounds.” He grumbled to himself.
He finally got to the mountain after nightfall and as luck would have it there was a cave right there. He cautiously entered looking around with his lights. He then realized night vision would be much more useful right now. He was about to turn it on when he heard movement.
He pivoted on his heel to look behind him but saw nothing. Then he heard a feral growling. Slowly turning around he saw what looked like the night sky with stars. Looking up toward the source of the growling he saw what appeared to be a bears head towering over him.
He uttered two words. “Oh Shazbot!”
Authors notes: My first fan fic…well first time writing anything really outside school so please be understanding with any errors I may have but the only way I can get better is by practicing and with your critics so please tell me my errors and such.
Jenkins wheeled around to run but got hit from behind by whatever the creature was and was sent hurtling out of the cave and hit the side of the wall as he flew out. Pain shot through his arm but quickly disappeared as the suit injected him with stimulants to numb the pain.
He decided to run not knowing what this thing was so he turned on the night vision mode of his visor and started to jetpack up the mountain. Running out of energy he landed and started sprinting upward and fired a disk from his Spinfusor behind him. He heard the thing roar in pain but keep coming.
“Well whatever this thing is its hide is strong enough to resist super-heated plasma…which isn’t good.” He thought to himself.
He could hear it getting closer and started to jetpack again until he got hit by something from behind and was sent rocketing up the slope. Pain racked his body but he used his upward momentum given to him by the blow and his jet pack to speed up the side of the mountain to the top.
On the other side he saw his savior. On the top of the mountain under a rocky shelf there was a smooth gravel slope that descended into the forest on the other side, it only had a few obstructions. Jenkins flared his skies to life he hit the slope and begin to pick up speed.
He could still hear that thing coming for him but then he heard the sound breaking of rocks behind him and something that was a cross between a yelp and growl. There was a roar as the rock shelf collapsed under the creature’s weight and an avalanche was started.
Jenkins didn’t even give it a second thought though. Now going at two hundred miles per hour he had nothing to worry about. That was until he got back into the forest and hit a tree.
“I really got to stop running into things.” Jenkins groaned as he got up.
He then started in the direction away from the mountain hoping to distance himself from whatever had attacked him. After several hours of wandering he noticed the forest was getting less dense and dawns light was seeping its golden tendrils through the branches of the trees.
“Well that’s a good sign.” He thought “Maybe now I can get out of this forest and get some food.” He hadn’t had dinner the night before or breakfast and the last time he had eaten had been before his deployment the day before. His mind wondered as he thought about a delicious breakfast until he was snapped back to reality by the sound of a branch snapping behind him.
He pivoted on his heel while taking out his Eagle pistol and aimed it. However what he saw nearly caused him to drop the gun.
Standing in front of him no taller than his waste was some type of horse thing with a bright pink mane and yellow fur and what appeared to be wings folded to its sides. It hid one of its eyes behind its mane when he reeled around and jumped and fluttered its wings a little as if startled by his sudden movement.
He thought to himself he could kill this thing and roast it but something about those large cerulean eyes were oddly disarming. It pointed with its hoof at something to his left and said something inaudible. He looked to his left and saw nothing.
“What is it?” He asked the horse thing though as he thought about it the thing was too small to be a horse, maybe a pony.
The pony tilted its head to one side a little at what he said then pointed again to his left, then pointed to its fetlock with its other hoof. It took a few seconds for Jenkins to realize it was motioning to his arm. He looked down and saw that the armor and under armor had been stripped from his forearm and while some of it had scabbed over was still bleeding.
“Just what type of pain meds does this thing give me?” He said out loud.
He knew that the suit gave painkillers to make combat in intense situations easier and less painful but this was just ridicules. He remembered when that monster had swatted him out of the cave last night and his arm hit the rocks on the way out. The beast must have striped the armor off then the rocks cut into him. But thanks to the meds he didn’t feel a thing.
He probably would have bled to death not even knowing that he was bleeding if it wasn’t for various other medical drugs. One of which was a stimulant which caused the body to produce more blood when the suits pilot was injured. Jenkins was pulled from his stupor as he felt a tugging at the under armor at his waist. Looking down the yellow pony had gently tugged a few times at the under armor then motioned to his arm and then started to trot away.
It seemed it wanted him to follow it but this was an alien after all. It seemed worried about his wound though so he followed it cautiously with his Spinfusor at the ready. It gave an odd look at the Spinfusor but continued on. After walking for about ten minutes they came out of the forest near a little hill that had animals scampering everywhere around it. Only until the pony started walking toward the hill did he notice it had windows, a door, and bird houses all around it.
“Is this the things home?” he wondered “And how does something with hooves make windows and doors?” He pondered this only for a second or two until the pony opened the door and motioned for him to go inside. He did cautiously and looked around.
There was furniture like a couch, some tables, and even a fire place. But what was most surprising to Jenkins were the little critters everywhere. Some were eating food pellets out of bowls on the ground, some were playing, and other returning to their homes built into the walls and ceiling.
The pony walked over and patted a couch as if wanting him to sit. The couch had small legs and would probably break under the weight of his armor so he just sat down on the floor and watched the Yellow pony hover away using her wings. She soon returned this time on hoof, and was caring things in her mouth and with her wings. She set them down then set about cleaning the wound and then bandaging it. It then said something in the inaudible gable that must be its language and then looked at him expectantly.
“Um…th-thanks.” Jenkins stuttered. He was a bit over whelmed at how this pony had cleaned and bandaged the wound without hands. It wasn’t just that though he was overwhelmed with. It was pretty obvious now that where ever he was, it was not known to humans and they may all think he is dead.
Jenkins was lost deep in thought. What if they thought he was dead? What if they didn’t try to come looking for him? His mind was filled with “What ifs?” He was jarred from his stupor at the rumbling in his stomach. The fact that he may have met another sentient being had made him temporarily forget his hunger.
The pony’s eyes widen as it heard his stomach growl and fluttered to the other side of the room then returned with a bowl and a box. She poured the contents from the box into the bowl. Jenkins looked at bowland then looked at the pony. Did it expect him to eat food pellets? He was no animal and those things probably wouldn’t taste all that great. He shook his head and to his surprise it seemed to understand. It seemed maybe nodding and shaking of one’s head may be more universal than he thought. It trotted into another room this time then came back with what looked like an apple in its wing.
It dropped it on the floor in front of him and looked at him expectantly. He picked it up with his left hand then made a sharp needle produce from the armor above his right hand. He stabbed the apple with it taking a sample then took it out and looked at what it had in it to see if it was edible.
It not only looked like an apple, it was an apple! Did they have other human foods he thought to himself but quickly forgot it as all he wanted was to eat. Then he remembered he would have to take off his helmet to do so. This pony thing seemed friendly enough but still he should be cautious.
He continued weighing his options but eventually hunger won out. He looked to the pony then slowly removed his helmet. The pony’s eyes grew so wide at this you could no longer see any white, just a sea of cerulean.
He bit into the apple and to say it was good would be an understatement. It was the best apple he had ever tasted as far as he could remember. He quickly devoured it but unsurprisingly was still hungry. He looked to the pony then pointed to the apple core then to his open mouth hoping it would understand. It nodded and moved towards the front door. He started to get up but it came back and patted the floor obviously wanting him to stay. He decided it would probably be best as if there were more of these ponies a fully armored Blood Eagle soldier may startle them. Seemingly satisfied the pony fluttered to the door and left.
Jenkins just sat there watching the multitude of animals scurry about the house for who knows how long. One animal really caught his eye. It was a snow white rabbit and from the way it was watching him, it seemed it may be more intelligent than these other animals. However whenever he took direct notice of it, it would scurry away.
He continued to ponder how he was going to get home until he heard a knocking at the door and the sound of whatever language it was these pony’s spoke. From the pitch of the voice it obviously wasn’t the Pink haired yellow furred one that was taking care of him. The one outside also seemed to be saying the same thing over and over getting increasingly louder with its voice and its knocks.
The sounds stop and Jenkins saw a cyan pony with a rainbow mane and stunning rose colored eyes look through the window. Its eyes went wide as it disappeared from the window and crashed through the door and sped straight at Jenkins. He didn’t even have time to react as it hit him to the floor from his sitting position and put its face to his and started shouting. He thrust his arms upward throwing the pony off him and rolled and scrambled to get to his helmet. He grabbed it but got hit from behind to the ground.
It jumped off and jumped forward but he grabbed its tail and threw it backwards into a table. The table broke under its weight but it recovered almost instantly. But those few seconds were enough for Jenkins to get out the door. He didn’t want to destroy the house of the creature that was trying to help him.
However this was a bad idea. It had wings just like the yellow one and was incredible fast. He was hit constantly from different angles. Just as he was about to get his baring’s and try to retaliate it would hit him again. This only went on for a short while until then he heard shouting.
Now on the ground in a sitting position he saw is assailant surrounded in a purple aura. The yellow pony was on top of him just like that looking over his body for any injuries. Once it backed away he now saw a lavender pony with a horn on its forehead talking to the cyan one. There was also an orange pony that was pulling a small wooden cart full of apples. He was flabbergasted. He was just some strange creature that the yellow one found in a forest. Yet it patched him up, fed him, seemed worried after the cyan one had beaten up on him (something he would never tell his brothers in arms he noted), and then gone and brought a whole cart full of apples for him.
He had grown up only knowing war and strife. He had to move to six different planets during his childhood due to his houses being destroyed. In that life you take what you can get. Yet here these ponies were doing what they could for a strange being they couldn’t even understand.
The cyan one was now standing off to the side looking at the ground seemingly sad and the orange one had pulled the cart near him then unhitched itself from the harness and just eyed him. The purple one however circled him studying the suit. It even knocked on the armor a few times with its hoof. It came uncomfortable close to his lower regions while it tapped the armor causing him to visibly flinch and it backed away.
The yellow one walked up to him with an apple in its mouth and dropped it to the ground. “Well that’s appetizing.” He thought. Instead of taking the one it had had in its mouth he walked up to the cart. He looked to each pony cautiously then removed him helmet and began to gorge himself on apples.
When he finished with half the cart he sat down now nice and full. The orange one just stared at him its mouth slightly open. Once he sat down the purple one approached cautiously. It was standing right next to him and slowly moved its hoof to his face.
He tensed but watched as the hoof touched his cheek. It had an odd fury and spongy feel to it. Sort of an odd sensation he thought. It then put its other hoof on his other cheek and then startled molding his face into different look. A frown, scowl, and when she made his face smile he lifted his eyes brows and opened his eyes wide which caused it to step away and giggle.
He heard shouting again in there strange language and looked down the path leading to the yellow ones cottage. What was running to them seemed to be some purple lizard that ran on two legs and seemed to have small scaly fingers. Clutched in one of its hands seemed to be a rolled up piece of paper.
However upon seeing him it dropped the paper then charged him, claws readied.
Authors note: Thank you to the people who favorited my story. I only have I think 12 but I didn’t even expect to get that many on my first story. Like I said in chapter one I would really like to hear some feedback. I have so many ideas for stories but a lot of them I don’t want to write until I am better at writing because I know what I have now is probably mediocre at best. I can only get better with the help of people telling me what I can and need to improve on. I chose tribes because I have not seen a fic about it yet. Unfortunately the mods passed it like at 1 in the morning so not a lot of people saw it I don’t think. So if you could pass this onto your friends that would be great. The more critics I can get the better.
Authors note: Sorry for the super long wait. Was having problems with this thing called life.
Jenkins readied his fist. He wasn’t sure if the spikes on his knuckles would pierce the things scales. He didn’t find out though as it got enveloped in the same purple aura the blue rainbow pony had gotten surrounded in.
Its then he noticed that the purple ones horn was glowing and when she set the lizard in front of her and seemed to start scolding it, the glow around the lizard and the horn disappeared. Jenkins took mental note of this, if it could restrain things with its mind it could provide a problem if the creatures turned out to be hostile after all.
Once it finished the lizard produced a quill and paper seemingly from no were and the purple one started talking. It seemed to be writing something down and when it was done it burned it. What was even more peculiar is the smoke swirled around then set off towards a mountain in the distance as if it had a purpose.
Jenkins then noticed that the yellow one had been slowly inching towards him. When he noticed it stopped and hid behind its mane. Jenkins held at his hand hoping it would come forward. It slowly advanced until it was right in front of him and put a hoof to his cheek. Seemingly satisfied it trotted back over to the others.
“These things sure do like my skin.” Jenkins thought. “Either my armor confused them or there trying to decide if I am edible.”
As Jenkins watched the yellow one he saw a flash out of the corner of his eye. He whipped his head around to see the purple one now levitating blocks, paper, and a few quills around her. She set these down in front of him and he noticed the blocks had numbers on them. Surprisingly they seemed to be the same numbers humans used, there were a few differences here and there, like the tail on the letter four curved but otherwise similar. This was astonishing to say the least. They had a different language but used the same number system. The purple one pointed to two blocks with the number one on it. Jenkins picked up a block with the number two on it and showed it to the purple pony hoping it had wanted him to add. When it saw this its eyes grew wide and it reared on its back legs and started clapping with its front hooves. It then started babbling about something, whether it was to him or its friends he couldn’t tell. He could have sworn the blue one had rolled its eyes though.
This continued on for about two more minutes. The purple one then started using the paper to write down questions getting harder with each one. After five minutes Jenkins couldn’t figure out the newest question and the purple one looked disappointed. Well what did it expect? In a society where they started teaching you to kill people with your bare hands in the second grade, math wasn’t the biggest priority.
It continued giving him all sorts of problems until there was a bright white flash he had to shield his eyes from. He quickly put on his helmet and looked toward the flash. Now standing were the flash had come from stood a particular tall, white unicorn with wings and an assortment of the pony’s with horns and wings all in armour. The ponies and lizard bowed to her. They seemed to regard it with respect but he was already on his feet with his Spinfusor pointed at it.
One of the horned ones with neon blue hair and purple armor stepped forward barking out what Jenkins assumed were commands. The other armored pony’s started to surround him and Jenkins spinfusor was enveloped in a purple aura and started to get tugged out of his hands.
Jenkins losing his grip but seeing the pony with the neon blue hair’s horn was glowing let go of his gun and quickly got out his eagle pistol and fired several rounds. All of which got blocked by a purple shield that appeared around the pony.
Jenkins reached for his Thumper but it had already been yanked from his side. Sensing defeat he charged forward with his claw ready to kill as many as he could before he died but before he could get close he was enveloped in a golden aura. He was now suspended in midair as the unusually tall winged unicorn approached him.
He felt his helmet being lifted off his head and started to panic and squirm in the things telekinetic hold. It touched its horn to his forehead and he felt a warm sensation. It backed away now and watched him.
“What did you do to me!?” He shouted still struggling in its hold.
“Please settle down we mean you no harm.” It responded in a soothing voice.
Jenkins looked dumbfounded “Did you just speak English?”
“Not exactly. I used a translating spell. Now when you hear equine it should sound like your native tongue. I also took the knowledge of your language so I could understand you.”
“Spell? Are you telling me you can use magic? And I don’t appreciate having my mind rooted through.” Jenkins felt like he should have been more enraged. But the tall pony’s gentle face and soothing voice just seemed to take the fight right out of him.
“Princess can it understand us? Because I still can’t understand it.” The purple one asked, her voice bubbling with excitement.
“I am not an it I am a he.” Jenkins grumbled.
“What did it say?” The purple one question.
The tall one lifted her head up and gold bubbles appeared over the purple, orange, cyan, and yellow pony’s heads as well as the one with the purple armor. There was a popping sound and all the bubbles were gone. “Can it understand us now?” The purple one once again questioned.
“Yes I can I am a male so stop calling me it.” Jenkins said rather annoyed. “And can you put me down?”
“Yes but do you promise not to hurt anypony.” The tall pony asked
“You’re the ones that attacked me.” Jenkins retorted
“Well you did point…whatever that thing is at me and Shining armor takes his job very seriously.”
“That I do.” Shining armor said proudly.
“Well you surprised me but fine, put me down and I promise not to attack any one.”
“Alright.” The tall one said while placing Jenkins on his feat. “Now allow me to introduce myself. I am Princess Celestia ruler of Equestria which is the country your now in, and you are?”
“I am High Marshal Kyle Jenkins of the Blood Eagle Tribe.” Jenkins stated proudly.
“High Marshal so your part of the military then?” Celestia asked.
“Yes I am. Now that that is done I would like to thank the yellow on over there.” Jenkins pointed at the winged yellow pony. “For patching up my arm. I didn’t even know it was injured because of the medicine my suit injects me with to keep me from feeling pain, I could have bled to death. May I ask you your name?” The yellow one hid behind her long pink mane as she noticed she was now the center of attention.
“My name is Fluttershy.” She mumbled.
What? I didn’t quite catch that?” Jenkins asked.
“Her name is Fluttershy and as you can tell she is very shy.” The purple one said. “My name is Twilight Sparkle and these are my friends.” She motioned to the two others.
“My name is Applejack and it’s nice to meet ya.” The orange one said.
“And I am Rainbow Dash, the best flyer in all of Equestria.” The cyan mare stated. Twilight nudged her with her elbow. “Oh and um…sorry for attacking you. I thought you did something to Fluttershy.” She said embarrassed rubbing one of her hooves behind her head.
“Well with formality’s out of the way let’s get down to business.” Celestia stated her tone now more serious. “A creature such as yourself has never been seen in Equestria and that armor you’re wearing is very advanced. So I am going to take a guess that you’re an alien.” Jenkins nodded.
“Well then I must ask how you came here and what your intentions are.”
“Well I could explain it all right here which would take several hours and won’t be very informative or I can give you all some holographic images and documements to study while I explain what I know. However my suit was damage when I collided with this world and one of my power cells and my energy pool have been damaged.”
A small hatch opened up on Jenkins jet back and he pulled out a small cylinder of glowing neon blue energy. “This is a power cell though judging by the fact that your guards are wielding spears I am going to take a guess and say you don’t have the technology to create this.”
All of the pony’s present stared wide eyed at the small cylinder in Jenkins hand. It was like nothing they had ever seen.
“Hmm I might have another solution can I see it?” Celestia asked.
Jenkins held his hand out and the cylinder was enveloped in gold and brought closer to Celestia. Twilight also moved closer in an attempt to study the object.
“Hmm…everypony stand back” Celestia said. She closed her eyes and began to focus. There was a brilliant flash of white light and now there were two power cells floated in front of Celestia.
Jenkins jaw nearly became unhinged. “B-b…Wh…How did you do that?” He stuttered. He was no scientist but even he knew that the power cells were extremely complex and that making one appear from thin air shouldn’t be possible.
“Simple really. I simple took the construction of matter in the first cell then made a copy and had more matter form around that in the same pattern as the first.” Celestia stated matter of factly.
“Well um…think you could do that a few more times?” Jenkins asked.
Several newly formed power cells later and a short walk to the large field next to Fluttershys cottage and Jenkins was ready to begin.
On the ground laid a dozen power cells all connected to each other with cables. At the end of one was a plug.
“Alright when I say now I want you to put this plug into this socket right here.” Jenkins pointed to a socket on his jetpack. “Can you do that?”
“Of course I can.” Shining armor huffed. He had insisted on plugging the contraption in instead of the princess lest she get hurt.
“Alright well here goes nothing.” Jenkins held his hands out and a slot on the armor above either wrist opened up revealing a shining cyan blue light. “Now!” he shouted.
Shining levitated the plug into the socket and Jenkins watched as the energy levels of his suit shot up to full but struggled to stay there as a crack in his jet back we letting neon blue energy leak out. However he only needed a few seconds. The two blue lights on either wrist shone bright for a moment and then died down again.
Then a huge Blue orb appeared then shrunk leaving behind a large metal cube.
“We did all that for a cube?” Shining asked slightly annoyed.
“Watch.” Jenkins said.
Then the cube started to come up from the ground. Legs on its corners pushing up. Sounds of locks being disengaged could be heard and the cube started to grow as sliders started pushing different sections of it outward. Once finished the cube now stood several feet off the ground. It had Edged pylons all the way around coming from the bottoms of the walls and had glowing blue lights in between each pylon. A door opened and a vertical path way extended from the door to the ground.
“Ta-da.” Jenkins said and smirked as he saw all the pony’s mouths wide open again. “Alright feel free to join me inside.” He said as he walked up the ramp into the command post.
Celestia, Twilight and her friends, and the royal guard all entered cautiously.
