I will fear no evil, for thou art with me, thy rod and thy staff, they confort me.
When Katrina Miller goes to Brony-Con, she's in for a long journey to the Equestria Girls universe as Princess Twilight Sparkle, all while trying to keep up her facade of Twilight and staying true to herself and Jesus Christ.
After begging my parents for months, they finally are allowing me, Seventeen year old Katrina Miller, to go to Brony-Con, as long as I stay with my sister Annabelle and keep her safe from creeps. Stepping in, I take a quick look at our cosplay costumes, Annabelle is cosplaying as Pinkie Pie while I'm cosplaying as my own character, Misty Rose, she has pink skin with blue hair with pink and purple streaks in it and her cutie mark is a blue and pink heart with a gold cross in the middle of it. I really should get to writing her fanfic someday. Our costumes are homemade and not 100% accurate. But Anna and I are so excited to be able to go that we don't mind. I put in my ear buds and play my favorite song, not My Little Pony, but a Contemporary Christian one. I just need u by TobyMac Annabelle taps me on the shoulder and I turn off my music. "What?" I ask.
"Look over there Katie." I look where she's pointing. There's a merchandise booth with a Apple Bloom bow, a Scootaloo scooter and helmet, a Applejack Stetson hat, and a replica of Twilight's crown and journal that she uses to communicate with Sunset. Among other things.
"Cool. Let's see how much the Twilight Crown is Annie." I say grabbing her hand.
"Hello sir, how much for the Twilight Sparkle crown and journal?" I say.
"Twenty bucks for both."
Yeouch. "How about five apiece?"
"They're worth at least ten apiece." He says.
"How about six apiece?" I offer.
"Seven is the lowest I'll go."
"Deal." I say handing him the money and grabbing the crown and journal.
I then put the crown on my head "What do you think? I ask Annabelle.
"I think it's a little odd to have an OC wearing Twilight's crown, but it suits you." She says.
I smirk at her for a moment. "Thanks sis," I say, then I get a terrible cramp, like double over bad. "I gotta use the bathroom." I tell Annabelle and then rush to the bathroom. Just as I step inside I have another cramp. Then I feel like something's tightening around my midriff. Then it stops and then I feel my hips widen, I don't know about you, but I am no Barbie Doll. I'm not overweight or anything like that, but still, I'm average. Then it stops and before I have any time to recover I feel my chest get bigger. And then it stops. And then my arms and legs get longer and slimmer. I can barely walk on them. "Jesus help me." I pray. The last thing I remember is rubbing my hand on the sun on the notebook.
I open my eyes. "Huh, Spike!?" I shout in confusion. "How am I?... Are you a dog?"
"I... think so. But I have no idea what you are!" He says in just as much, if not more, confusion.
I then look down at myself. "Huh?" I'm still human, and a girl, but now I've got pale purple skin instead of tan, navy blue hair with pink and purple streaks in it instead of medium brown with pink and blue streaks, and I look like I could be on the cover of Seventeen magazine. I look at my clothes now, they're the same ones that Twilight wears in Equestria Girls and Rainbow Rocks, and the skirt is really short for me. I search my memories for any clue how I got here. I find two memories that help. Me and Annabelle going to Brony-Con and me buying the crown and my excruciatingly painful transformation. And a second memory, Twilight, or myself, going to a princess summit and Sunset stealing my crown, then me going through the mirror. I take a deep breath. "Jesus, help me through this." I pray out loud.
"Um, are you ok Twilight?" Spike says fearfully to me. "You're talking to nopony."
I take another deep breath. "I'm fine Spike. Let's look through my... saddle bag."
Opening the backpack, I find notebooks and pencils, the fake crown that Sunset replaced Twi... my crown with, a phone, and a book. I pick it up and read the title. "Holy Bible, NLT." I knew God wouldn't forsake me.
"What's that. We never had a book like that at home." Spike asks.
"I've uh, kept it hidden. It's a very valuable book." I say nervously.
"If you say so." Spike says dubiously.
"Come on. Let's search the school. Hop in." I tell Spike holding out my backpack.
"Why do I need to be in your saddlebag?" Spike asked confused, "And how do you know it's a school?"
"Look, it's definitely not a castle, and it looks kind of like Princess Celestia's School, and you weren't allowed at Celestia's school, and I'm not taking any chances. So hop in." I say while searching my new memories for proof.
"Fine." Spike says, obviously not happy.
Trying to keep my balance, I start walking to the school. I manage to walk around five steps before falling face first. I get back up again and manage to get inside the school. I walk over to the display case and see that Rainbow was the one who won all of these awards. Then the bell rings and in all the hullabaloo I fall and crawl my way out, doing a somersault trying to release my foot, bumping into someone.
I then hear that someone say, "Hey, are you ok?" Flash Sentry says holding out his hand.
I take his hand and say, "Yes. I just tripped. Thank you?..."
"Oh," he says looking embarrassed. "My name is Flash Sentry. What's yours?"
"Oh where are my manners?" I say. "My name is Twilight Sparkle. Nice to meet you Flash. Or do you prefer Mr. Sentry?" I say teasing him.
"No, it's Flash." He says playing along. "I'll keep an eye out for you, Twilight. Or do you prefer Ms. Sparkle?" He says with a twinkle in his eye.
"Definitely Twilight." I say quickly. "I'll see you around."
"Not if I see you first." He calls to me as he walks away.
Knowing what's supposed to come next, I try to think of the tune and words to Strange New World, but instead the music and lyrics to Confidence comes to me.
During the song and looking for Fluttershy and Sunset, I see the human CMCs, and Scootaloo was riding her scooter inside the school. That's something I would never be allowed to do. But you know, the song I sang inwardly is definitely true for me here and now. I need to rely on God and trust that he'll help me face these giants.
"I'm sorry, I just saw it and I thought I should give it to her. I didn't know you had dropped it." I hear EQG Fluttershy say. Even though I've seen this movie at least one hundred times, hearing her so scared and defenceless fills me with what my mom calls righteous anger.
I start to clench my teeth to try to calm myself, though it gets harder when I hear Sunset say, "Well, I did, and I was just about to grab it. You shouldn't grab stuff that doesn't belong to you."
"It doesn't really belong to you either." Wow. This Fluttershy is sassy, for her anyway. Hey, cut me some slack, I haven't seen the movie since it got taken off of Netflix. Some things are bound to slip through the cracks in my memory.
"EXCUSE ME!?" Sunset yells aggressively.
"Nothing." Fluttershy whimpers.
"That's right. It's as good as mine and you know it. You're pathetic. No wonder your only friends are stray animals."
Okay, that's it. I'm not backing down. I played it safe. But now things have changed. I'm not going to stay silent this time. "HOW DARE YOU SPEAK TO HER THAT WAY!" I shout.
"What did you say!?" Sunset asks shocked, likely that someone would be bold enough to stand up to her.
"You heard me. I said how dare you speak to her that way."
Her shocked look fades and turns into a smirk. "You must be..."
"New here?" I say cutting her off and grabbing her hand, "Why yes. Yes I am." I say with my own smirk, which fades as I say, "But I do know this. You can't do anything you want. Now look, I don't want to fight you. But I will if you don't leave this young lady alone. Your choice, either leave this hallway now, or put up your dukes." I say putting up mine to show I mean business.
"Y-y-you'll regret this. I'll get back at you. " She says sputtering. And then runs away with her proverbial tail between her legs. It's all I can do to not shout 'don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya' as she runs.
"I can't believe you did that." Fluttershy says shocked.
"Well, what was I supposed to do? Sit idly by and do nothing?" I say somewhat joking.
"It's just, nobody stands up to Sunset Shimmer."
"Why?" I ask, already knowing why.
"She's the meanest person in school. I don't think I've seen you around before. Did you just transfer to Canterlot High from another school?"
"Yes. I just transferred from LFG Academy, it's a private school. My name is Ka- Twilight Sparkle. What's yours?" I say, hoping she doesn't notice my fluke.
"Fluttershy. That's a beautiful name. Would you like to meet my dog?" I say grabbing my backpack.
"You have a dog?" She says with a surprised expression on her face.
"Yes his name is Spike."
"Oh he's darling. Don't you wish you could know what he's thinking?"
"Yeah. Just out of curiosity, you were talking about something being dropped. It wasn't a crown, was it?"
"Yes. How did you know?"
"Lucky guess. You said you gave it to someone. Who was that? And how did you find the crown? Please answer the second question first."
"Well, I was handing out flyers for the animal shelter like I do every Wednesday."
"Cool. Do you have one of them? I'd love to take a look."
"Um, sure. Here." Fluttershy says as she hands one to me.
"I'll definitely volunteer soon." If I'm still here. I add silently. "Sorry for interrupting you. Please continue."
"Then I felt the crown hit my head. I had no idea how it got there. So I gave it to Principal Celestia."
"Hmm. Interesting. Do you know where I can find her?"
"She's usually in her office."
"Could you point me in the right direction?"
"Third door on your left down that hallway." Fluttershy says pointing.
"Thank you so much. I'll see you around. Spike. Get in." I say while pointing to the backpack.
He whines while looking at me with puppy eyes. I narrow my eyes in return and he growls, but gets in.
The bell then rings and Fluttershy says, "Oops, I'm late for class. Bye."
After walking to the door of Celestia's office, I knock.
"Come in." I hear her say less than thrilled.
So I walk in like a normal person would.
"How may I help you." Again, gotta love her attitude.
"I'm a new transfer. And I was wondering if Fluttershy had given you a crown?"
"Why yes, Yes she did. I gave it to Vice Principal Luna for safekeeping. No idea how it ended up on the front lawn. Would you be interested in running for Fall Formal Princess Miss...?"
"Oh, my name is Ka- Twilight. Twilight Sparkle." I say. Wishing I could stop referring to myself as Katrina. How come I could get it right with Flash, but I can't seem to do it with anyone else. "Fall Formal? What's that?"
"It's Canterlot High's big fall dance." Again, I can't stress this enough. She reminds me of Roberta. She was the lady who "helped" me get my learners permit, helped being a loose term. She acted like I was a nuisance and she would rather be anywhere else.
"Cool. How do I sign up?"
"Just tell the head of the Fall Formal planning committee that you want to be on the ballot."
"If you need anything else, my door is always open." She says before slamming the door. Yeah, I really think you're going to have my back.
"Twilight, Why didn't you say that the crown was yours and ask for it back?" Spike asks.
"Well, when we first came here I was planning to. But what if someone from here ended up in Equestria and said they were from a human world? We'd think they were crazy." Says the human girl who's starting to worry about how long she can keep up this charade. Especially with Spike living with me.
"If I want to get my crown back I'll have to beat Sunset at her own game."
