If every century the elements of harmony must choose new bearers, who's to say they don't choose someone, or something, that isn't a pony at some point?

If every century the elements of harmony must choose new bearers, who's to say they don't choose someone, or something, that isn't a pony at some point? With that said, what if it chose it because something sentient got hit with a stray harmony blast and found something that needed to be brought to hope?

\|/ Jason Williams - human male, t-shirts, blue jeans (mostly), sneakers, brown hair, farmers tan, and blue eyes. His primary personality traits are that he is stubborn but trusting. His theme song.

<===>--- Cotton Cloud - pegasus mare, white coat, sky blue twilight styled mane, and purple eyes. Her cutie mark is a white fluffy cloud on a cotton candy stick. She is extremely tomboyish while still being a cotton candy merchant. Her theme song.

(0^0) Tetra Everglow - unicorn mare, tan coat, lime green RD style mane, and maroon eyes. She very fun loving and some ponies (Sunbutt and Moonbutt) insist that she is Pinkie Pies reincarnation. Her cutie mark is some unstably stacked books which fits her personality as she juggles things that shouldn't be able to be juggled easily while still being a librarian with her sister, Spindle Everglow. Her theme song.

VAV Spindle Everglow - dragon/pony mare, dark purple scales, light purple Rarity style mane of scales, and brown eyes. She is very easily scared and overly cautious. Her cutie mark, to the amazement of everypony that knows her and the fact that she's a draco, dragon/pony hybrid, is a multicolored gem despite being a librarian with her sister, Tetra Everglow. Her theme song.

|__| Cinnamon Drop - earth pony mare (was born stallion but trans.), cream colored coat, pink AJ style mane, and green eyes. She is honest (painfully so...), and her cutie mark is an apple pie styled CD to signify her being good at both balancing farming and music (primarily country/DJ-ing.) Her theme song.

"Tetra! Wait up!" I yelled at my half-sister, Tetra Everglow, "You know I hate leaving the library!"

"You say that everytime we go visit CD and then we have fun! And don't say you don't because I see you dancing on the wall, Spindle!" Tetra called back to me, causing me to blush furiously and pick up my pace to get to Cinnamon Drop's barn as fast as possible.

Let's get this night over with... I thought to myself.




"Grounded. Until further notice. No books, no computer, no nothing buster," my mom said, my fanfiction in her hand.

"But Mom! It's just a fanfic!" I cried, hoping to talk my way out of writing a clopfic on accident.

"No butts. Room. Now. I'll tell your dad when he gets home, she scolded me, pointing at my room.

I slumped my shoulders and walked into my room. I found it stripped of all my books, journals, and laptop. All that was left was my messy bed. I shrugged my shoulders and went to my left, which had a window, and watched the stars.


I woke up to a light filtering through my window and heard some moans and a faint vibrating coming from my parent's room. Then I felt something pulling me toward, and through, the window. Next thing I know I'm flying through the sky, my window unbroken, then I was surrounded by the multicolored light.

Let's get this night over with... I thought before falling asleep from the peace the light brought me.



I was awoken from my nap on a cloud by a multicolored beam of light that seemed to come from the park popping said cloud and causing me to drop a few feet before I caught myself. And since I was on a spontaneous adrenaline rush I gave chase to try and find the unicorn responsible for almost hitting me and waking me up on my day off. As it turns out, I found a... thing at the end of the beam.

"What the hay...?" I said outloud partially in shock, partially because I think I was still dreaming.

The creature looked kinda like a minotaur, but it had no hooves, I think, no fur, and no horns. From what I could tell it only had fur on the top of its head. But aside from that, I had no real idea what it could've been. So I did what any sane pony in my position would do. I panicked and ran away.



I was just finishing up a good mix when all of a sudden the local cotton candy merchant, cute as she is, came flying almost as fast as the fastest mare in history, who also just so happened to be her ancestor, babbling something about a monster and sleeping.

"Now calm the hay down, Cotton! What are you talking about, and why are you panicking?" I said after shoving my hoof in her mouth to shut her up and also to shock her enough to bring her back to full understandable sentences.

"There's a furless THING in the middle of the park, and it used some sort of magic that almost killed me!" she said after spitting my hoof out, though still flustered as all Tartarus.

"Mind describing it?" I asked, half expecting her to tell me something like a minotaur/griffon hybrid. Oh how wrong I was...



I woke up with a pounding headache, the smell of grass in my face, and the feeling of the sun on my back.

Great. They kicked me out and left me in a park... I thought as I slowly pushed myself onto my hands and knees. As I looked around however, I realized that it was too bright and far too colorful for me to be on Earth... Especially when I noticed something that looked like a tooth paste colored unicorn looking thing staring at me with sparkles in its eyes and an upside down harp shaped branding on both of its flanks...

"What. The. Eternal. Hell." I said, my befuddled brain Still trying to register what was happening to me. However, as soon as I said that, the weird looking horse let out this ear splitting squeal then ran up to me and glomped me to the ground saying something about how it knew Granny Lyra wasn't crazy...

How to speak pony

Last night was a crazy night. I managed to get Spindle to have fun again, a feat that only I seem to be capable of as of late. Especially after her boyfriend, a diamond dog named Rockruff, dumped her after going out for about three months. I had told her not to bother with a diamond dog considering she didn't have many jewels. But my poor sister refused to admit this, saying that he was different. She was so foalish... But that doesn't matter. What does matter is that another colt approached her last night and I'm currently doing what I can to find the little bugger and-

"AHA! I knew the fool was lying! He's not doing this because of some friends, he genuinely loves you!" I yelled turning around and finding a sleeping Spindle that was shocked to wakefulness by my sudden outburst.

"Huhwha?" was Tetra's response as she slowly uncoiled herself from her stack of books. She was acting so much like Uncle Spike it made me laugh at her movements.

"Ahem. I said he genuinely loves you. He comes from a pretty modest family, and has already had many mares ask, no, BEG for him to marry them. He's also refused to go to any prearranged marriages where he knew too little about the mare, or just didn't like how she acted! So in the end, his father got fed up with him and said that he won't try and get him a wife anymore. Instead he has to choose his own mare, and he chose you!" I said

"Mmhmm..." She mumbled and coiled up on her pile of books again and went back to sleep.

I sighed then used a translocation spell to drop her over the lake in the park to wake her up. Needless to say, my little antic woke my cousin and everypony in a three mile radius around the lake. I then teleported myself to the lake edge to find a frantically swimming Tetra paddling to where I was.

"You awake yet, sis?" I asked once she had gotten her claws under herself, giggling to myself.

"R-r-rem-m-mind me to eat your gems later..." She grumbled at me, then shook herself to fling off all the water, causing me and several ponies nearby with said cold lake water.

"HEY! Watch it!" Shouted a nearby mino- wait. Minotaurs have horns, fur, and hooves. This... THING didn't have any of those...



I was already agitated that a certain mare wouldn't leave me alone, but then, as I'm chilling next to the lake, a giant lizard shakes itself off and splashes water all over me. Needless to say, I snapped at them. But the weird thing, was what happened next. The mare teleported herself into my lap, smiling widely, and said something so fast, I couldn't understand her.

"Woahwoahwoah, slow down there, Pinkie. What the heck did you say?" I ask after clapping both hands over her mouth to quiet her.

"I'm Tetra, that big party pooper of a dragon is my sis, Spindle, and what are you? And how do you know Greataunt Pinkie Pie? I'm pretty sure she would've mentioned something as interesting and probably fun as you!" She said, obviously Pinkie reincarnated.

"Uh..." was all I could think of before getting sideswiped by another mare, this one a pegasus.

"Alright, pal, who are you, and how did you- WOAH!" She screamed in my face before a lasso flew over her and wrapped itself around her barrel somehow and yanked her off.

"Now y'all need to calm the hay down, Cotton. He is clearly confused and about as dangerous as Applejack was to her sister," said a cream colored mare with a slightly deeper voice than the others, albeit only just.

My mind was indeed broken. Here I was, standing in front of what I could only assume to be the descendants of the mares I had been writing a bad clopfic for not even 24 hours ago. Saying I was mentally panicking was the understatement of the century.

"I uh... I'm sorry, but, what? I can't do magic, I can't even do any of that fancy sleight of hand stuff for a half decent card trick!" I said, so highly confused that Discord might as well be playing in my head.



I stared at the... thing for a few seconds, pausing in my somewhat futile attempt to get the rope off of me. I must be hearing things. I thought. If he can't use magic, then how did he use that rainbow streak?

"Then... How'd you get to Equis? I am almost positive I would've seen some kind of mention about humans during my studies with Mother," Tetra asked, probably already planning his birthday, welcoming, and first friend party, as everyone nearby but the... human facehoofed.

"Well, uh... There was this big bright rainbow flowing into my window, and it was very warm and comforting. Then, next thing i know, I'm in a park being harrassed by this weird mint coloured pony saying something about a Lyra and not being crazy," he said, "And then, the pony offered me to spend the night in their home, but... Well, new place, and all. Not sure how dangerous you ponies are to each other, but most humans don't do anything unless it benefits themselves in some way , shape, or form."

"That's impossible!" I shouted. "If you're telling the truth, then how the hay did your people survive long enough to make clothes!?"

To my irritation, the human just simply shrugged and tried to scoot away from me.



As the furless mino- human was scooting away from Cotton, he bumped into me, and looked up. And then promptly went very rigid, and very pale. No doubt scared about seeing a dragon behind him. So I did the one thing I could think of. I waved.

To say it was a bad idea would be an understatement. A very sever understatement... He screamed shrilly, and fainted...

I hope he's ok... I thought as I carried him to the hospital.
