Magical Discharge

View Online

"Who knew that we would get this far, Humans. Magical creatures of the planet earth. Its was only centuries ago that humans believed magic didn't exist. and even longer that humans executed each other because of it. Now, In the year 2040. Humans are at war because of it." Our teacher read to us from the history book. She flicked a small hand sized rod, making the pages of her book flip one after another. half the students replied in kind. I was one of those students.

"But miss arkman" you call out. "Why do we fight. surly this is not all because of the magic some people have and the others don't"

"Yea, why do they have to be so violent when they're jealous." another student, blurted out.

"Its not about jealousy." The teacher answered. "Its because, well.... about a year after we discovered the Moon rock that we now call the "sorcerer's stone." it let off a sort of energy. that energy had mixed affects. To half of the world it made people very very sick and to the other half It did nothing. For those who didn't get sick were greeted by these weird supernatural powers we call magic." she said flicking her 'wand" which instantly ignited a candle on the far side of the room. The other half eventually got better, of course but they were angry. they accused our magic and our stone of being dangerous and unnatural. They tried to get rid of the stone. The humans that fought for the stone are now called "witches" an ancient word from our ancestors. a couple years back it would have been derogatory but was recently changed to something less of a compliment.

"Um, miss." one quiet barely audible voice squeaks from behind a desk.
"I tried using magic before without a wand and it never works, it only ends up burning my hand." the student showed the teacher her hand that was covered in blisters, markings, and burns.

The teacher examined the wounds a shuddered.
"You should really see a doctor about that."

The student looked clearly unsatisfied.

"Oh! the question. well the magic comes from the stone currently residing in the north pole. The stone is connected to several other smaller ones in each major city through something called "ley lines." when a person thinks to casts a spell, the wand sends out a signal to your major city's stone, that stone then sends a signal to the main sorcerer's stone in the north, the stone in the north generates the energy needed to cast said spell. the energy then returns to your major stone and back to your wand. this all happens in a matter of seconds." The Ms arkman finishes with a demonstration of her own magic. her wand lights up along with all the student's text books. the book then rise above the students heads and shut themselves, slowly floating to the bookshelf.

The bell rings and class is dismissed

"Don't expect me to do this everyday you guys. just because you have magic doesn't mean you cant get off your lazy butts and do things with your hands. " The teacher cried out to the students who were already gone.

Yea lets be fair to the "magless" one student laughed, shoving a short kid with long black hair. he fell to the ground.
The word again, magless . that's the word witches used to those who didn't have magic. Even though the war is not even in this country but is instead in the north; they're is still a lot of problems with how the "magless" and the witches treat each other. every day you go to lunch you see them, the MPR harassing witches in the streets. and witches attacking the MPR. of course its illegal, and you may get arrested and your wand confiscated. But it still happens, left right and center.

"we're all adults here lets be mature about things!" well. your only 17 but you're mature enough to tell whats right and wrong.
You help the other kid up and magically stack his books that were scattered across the hallways. he gets up immediately, picking up the books in his ascent. he quickly turns on his heals and walks off, blush streaked across his face. he left, mumbling something about magic and witches being evil.

you stood there, in the empty hallway, betrayed and confused.
I just don't know what wen't wrong.
Somewhere beyond the horsehead nebula 1,500 light years away. same time.

"Lyra get down from there!"
Bonbon cried out to her mare friend who was about 15 feet in the air via tree.

"I can't I need to set up this atomic reactor dish."
The green unicorn replied from the top of the everfree tree.

"Lyra this is ridiculous, I have told you over a million times, HUMANS DON'T EXIST. your a bucking musician. If they really were floating up there don't you think somepony more qualified would have found them?" A lavender unicorn shouted out to the tree pony."

"Yea and that's my favorite pot your using up there too" Twilight looked at bonbon as if she wasn't listening to a single thing she said.

"Just one more minute!" Lyra cried. She begins twisting some wires.

"al'ight I'm here, what did you need me for twi'?" A orange hornless pony with a stetson said.

"Applejack I need you to buck lyra...." applejack cocked her head.
"Gee twilight you know I'm not into that fillyfooling business" Apllejack mumbled.

"wha- no! I mean buck her out of that tree. she on one of Those moments again.

Applejack sighed.
"This ought'a be her third time this week."

Applejack approached the tree, taking of her stetson and placing it on twilight's head.

"Alright sugercube you had your fun but this ought to stop before you hurt yourself or somepony. get down from there" Applejack sternly commanded.

there was silence.

"No" Lyra bluntly stated.

Applejack was losing her patience. "Imma gonna give you 4 seconds to apologize and say your coming down before I buck you to next week!"

"Applejack I didn't know you were a fillyfooler" Lyra replied from up the tree.

"I *buck* AM * Buck* Not

Lyra fell from the tree at an alarming rate only to be caught be Twilight's magic grasp before she hit the ground. But that's not all that happened.

The reactor dish/ cooking bot. started shaking and twirling and making beeping noises.

"W-whats happening??" Twilight asked in worry

We found something.... WE FOUND A HUMAN! she cried out, attempting to ascend the tree again. Twilight pulled her down again.

"It doesn't matter where I am now." Lyra said with a smirk.


Milky way galaxy 1,500 lightyears away
"Leave me alone, jerks." You say, shoving past a few of them only to be blocked by them again.
"How bout you give me your wand and money and I won't think of hurting you." One of them whispers in your ear.

wh- This is what this is all about? Because of the magic? Well I'm not giving you anything, go away. you say, now pointing the green glowing rod towards the leaders face.

"Really, that's all you got?" The leader began walking towards you as if the wand didn't exist. you pull your extended arm back as he gets closer. he was towering over you.

The blond teenager with the blue and brown unmatching eyes reached into his pocket and pulled out a knife.

you quickly react quickly, raising the wand and as he takes a slicing attempt at you. You attempt to back up but were too slow, the blade hits your cheek leaving a small cut on it. The people around you and him back up to create a small circle. neither of you could leave now.

closing you eyes for a second you think of what you want to do. Your wand glows from green to a healthy orange color.
it begins to spark as fire consumes the tip, the ball of flame expands at the tip, ready to be launched at whoever was in front of it.

some of the gang members back up, some leave all together but the real perpetrator remains where he was.
"I'll say this again: back off or I'll burn you worst than my cooking." the remaining crowd members make "ooing" noises.

"Well then, If that's how it is bring it on!" he yells, charging at you with his knife.
For that one moment, time seemed to slow. you felt like you had all the time in the world to defend against the slowly approaching danger.

you raise the wand more, ready to finish the spell...


Just then as you reach one, a blinding light appears at the tip of the wand, blinding you and the people in front.
"T-thats not fire" you try to say over the sudden gusts of wind coming from all sides.

By now, every remaining thug ran away and it was only you and the paralyzed MPR gang leader left. you wanted to stop the spell, to just let go and run, leaving fate for the thug. but you couldn't. literally.

The wind that was swirling around you from skirt to hair was begging to leave and space a gap between you and the thug.
the wind changed color from clear and invisible to a dark purple glow. The wind kept swirling until it formed what looked like a Portal.

A portal? like the ones from fantasy stories and cliché fanfiction, yea, thats what it was. and it was now pulling you in.
with all your effort you dug your feet in. and tried to shut the portal, chanting all the cancellation and failsafe spell words you learn in primary magic classes.

The thug dug his fingers in to dirt, trying to restrain himself from the pulling force.

Little did they know the same thing was happening on another planet.


Somewhere beyond the horsehead nebula 1,500 light years away.

Applejack, Twilight, Bonbon, and Lyra were all being pushed back by the reactor that was now generating a portal.
Twilight dug her hoofs in, her horn glowing with lavender fury. She mumbled all the failsafe and cancellation spell she knew. setting up magical damage wards. so the portal doesn't collapse in on itself. flipping the universe inside-out and making it swallow in on its self when suddenly a hoof sized metal glowing stick comes out of the portal and bonks twilight on the head.

Milky way galaxy 1,500 light years away.

you were now on the ground, grabbing onto a tree trunk as well. Your wand is long gone and you are now praying that the other end of the portal isn't in deep space or 80 feet in the air. you begin to pull yourself up when you were assaulted by a newspaper. you fall back, no longer restrained by anything you get instantly sucked in.

"Ugh Its last weeks paper too"

Beyond horsehead nebula 1,500 light years away {Everfree grove}

The portal was no beyond out of hoof.
Twilight and her friends were now holding onto whatever they could find.
The portal shrunk for a moment the expanded bigger than ever, shooting out something big in the process. The portal shrunk again visibly calming down.

"Well, that was interesting." Lyra mumbled. "Hey wait! what was that thing that came out of there? is it a human?"

"ugh ENOUGH ABOUT HUMANS" Twilight shouted. she approached Lyra as if she was going to punch the mare little did she know, there was a shadow rising up from behind her.


"T-t- twilight..." Applejack, Lyra, and bonbon all said in unison.

This needs to stop lyra! your nuts! and you should be cowering because you almost DESTROYED the everfree! I'm not sure why your cowering Applejack and either you BonBon but I'm talking to Lyra this time.

"T-t twilight.. Behind y-you."

It took twilight a moment to pick up on whats going on, seeing the shadow that wasn't her own.

Twilight, slowly turned around to the sight of a Giant .

"H-hi" It says.

Role Call

"Um.... Hi" you say. You couldn't think of anything better to say as your mind is still trying to put together the situation at hand.
I mean, talking ponies? how should you react to that? The ponies, or more specifically the purple one is probably thinking the same as your are, if these things even think at all. Maybe you were wrong about their talking abilities. Either way you try,.to communicate.

"Your a pony..... with a horn... a unicorn?" you stretch out the last word a little.
The purple pony nods slowly and cautiously.
"~So it does understand me, that must be all that magic I'm sensing, she must be very careful, I should be careful. " you whisper.

"And your a human! ohmycelstia you really are! I cant believe it! what do you eat? where do you live? what is you culture like? tell... me.... everything! " another pony, a green one said, she was now in front of the purple pony and now nearly a couple inches away from your face, she sprung up and down in the air to make eye contact with you.

Cautiously, you back up until you cant anymore, you fall on you butt by a hollow log in which point you hear a quiet but familiar humming in the dead trunk.

"~That must be my wand, thank god. I can grab it and cast a spell, any spell. and get out of here." you think to yourself

Without looking away from the weird talking technicolor ponies in front of you, you stick your hand in the log slowly as to not startle the ponies. In the log you feel several things. some soft and others bristly you shiver as your imagination tries to piece together what you are touching.

~what if its a big ugly hairy bug?

You recoil your hand a little only to dig it in faster when you see a certain green pony approaching.

Your having one of those moments again, when time slows down, danger is approaching again.... I think.
You feel something unnatural in the log and grab at it, silently praying in your mind it isn't a disgusting insect.
As you pull out the object, the humming gets louder and a red light appears from the log along with the rest of your hand.

Pulling out the wand along with some disgusting slime and some small bugs; you point it at the approaching psyco-pony who
immediately stops seeing the what you pulled out.

The pony cocks her head, confusion clearly visible on her face.
"What Is that? is that some sort of super alien ray gun" she sudden gasps with a hoof over her mouth.
"Are you here to suck our brains out through bendy straws?!?" she shouts. Now it was your turn to be confused.
"WHAT? bendy straws? brain sucking? what am I to you? an alien? Last time I checked your still a talking pony! you shouldn't be doing that!" you snap.

"Just s-stay away from me" you say, cowering behind your pointed wand.

Your usually not a skeptical person, you accept things as you see them, but this... this is just madness.
Having a minor case of Equinophobia since you were a child, you tend to stay away from ponies and horses.
it wasn't that difficult considering you live in the city. Now, you are sitting by a log, surrounded by weird creatures that take the form of talking Technicolor Ponies with horns.

The green pony looked back at her companions who were just now recovering from whatever frightened state they were in before and were now approaching you as well. You raise the wand again to ward them back.

~I guess threatening them with the wand wont work if they don't know what it does, still. I sense magic all around the area, just like home. Maybe they have a stone somewhere and know of magic. I should really be careful.

You sat there and tried to consider all the ways you could even BE here. Maybe this is all fake, maybe I'm still unconscious, convulsing on the ground and foaming from the mouth like a fish out of water.

"Listen" you say. You point the wand to the ground, the wand sparks up and shoots a red beam across the dirt making a straight burning line between you and them .
"Unless you want a burning hole through your head, you stay behind that line, got it? "

The green unicorn, being closest to the line; nodded her head nervously.

"Now..." you say after getting your mind back on track.

"Where am I? and what are your names, I mean, if you even have any."

A orange pony from farther back was the first to approach.

"I'm applejack pleasure is al' mine" she said, removing a stetson from the purple pony's head

"And I'M LYRA!" Lyra shouted, almost breaking the boundary in the process.

you look over to the cream hornless pony who was silent this entire time.

"And your name is?" you ask.

She remains silent.

"....okie well th-"

"Her name is bonbon, she my roommate and for the longest time shes been calling me crazy for believing in humans but now your here! and I have so many questions! oh and my name is Lyra, in case your wondering."

My name is Twilight Sparkle and its an honor to meet a extraterrestrial such as yourself." The purple pony, the last of the ponies said.


"Lyra, yes, I know." you deadpan

"And as for where you are; you are in Equestria." Twilight Sparkle said.

"Equestria... hm, I never heard of such a pla-"

You were interrupted by the gushing wind coming from the portal you and everyone else forgot about.

"Ugh not again" the purple pony said. Twilights horn lit up with a lavender glow followed by a thin beam that shot from it and hit the portal's center.

~So these horned ponies really are magic, Its weird how they can do all that even without a wand. I should help her.

You point your wand towards the portal, you had no idea what she was trying to do but you try to mimic her spell anyways. Twilight and the other ponies gasped, seeing you use your magic on the portal.

The portal expanded and out of it came another object. you had no time to figure out what is was because it was now heading right for you! Almost as if the pressure of the portal shot the figure at you; the large clump of... thing came flying at you at an incredible speed.

"Wait is that... the guy from earlier?!?!" you say before catching him with you magic, unfortunately the force of the teenager made you knock your head against the log you were backed up against.

you fall over, your eyesight begins to blacken as the last thing you see is a emblem sewn on the coat belonging to the body

"Do you think they'll be alright" A female voice of concern said.

"I don't know, I've never tended to such a ... complex... creature." a quiet timid voice mumbled.

"My first humans and they're already dead!" A third voice shouted. "Oh well, I can still have their hands."
your hand twitches and folds into a fist at the sound of that.
"Well what about the other one" The timid voice of concern says.
"Well He will be alright I suppose, he took some damage going through the portal, some small bone fractures but he'll live"

~They must be talking about the thug.

"What really catches my interest is this stick thingy, I can't pick it up with my magic, it shocks me when I try and it reacts by glowing purple when I get close with my horn." The seemingly intelligent voice says.

"And it turns green when I get close to It." another voice added

"Maybe we should take it apart and find out how it works" a male child-like voice speaks up.

Your face scrunches up when you hear that, just who are these people. from the feel of the bed your in, you get the sense your not in a hospital. You try and open your eyes but were immediately assaulted by a blinding, blurry light.
You gather your energy and pull yourself up, opening you eyes in the process. This emitted a wave of gasps in the process.

You fully but lazily open your eyes to the scene in front of you. you are not in a hospital but instead inside some sort of prehistoric house. wood walls and simplistic glass windows instead of metal walls and shatter proof glass. several small doors and holes littered the room with "should be extinct" Animals leaving and entering them.

"we're am I?" you slur

you look around at your company.

Ponies and a lizard, some you have met in the forest and some (and the lizard) are new to you. but wait. where was the other guy they were talking about? you look around the frozen ponies then to your left where a mound of fabric was covering something.

you hesitantly grab the edge of the cloth and pull it over.

Twili Vision

I can't believe you put me in the same bed as.... him!
the conscious human said from the floor beside the bed it has fallen from

"whats wrong with him" you ask in concerned confusion.

The human seemed to have paused, it looks around us and back to the human on top of the bed.

"Hes human that's what! " lightning struck the window as all the ponies gasp... wait, what?

you look around at your friends, they all seemed to have that "wait what" look on their faces. even spike who was riding on your back.

but.... you're human too aren't you? Lyra said.

I am human yes, but I am a magical human, I am what he calls "A witch "

"~Hm,this is interesting" you thought to yourself.

"Witches are truly interesting; They are creatures who normally wouldn't have magic but over a odd course of events, received it. Of course, earth ponies and pegasi have their own type of magic. But if a earth pony or pegasi were to harness arcane energy, well that's just unethical. on days like Nightmare night, earth ponies and pegasi dress as witches in tradition garbs to symbolize the magic they believe they have, locked away in the depths of their hearts. most unicorns despise that idea, adamantly believing that magic comes from the horn, not from the heart. but if this glowing wand somehow supports hornless magic, then maybe... just maybe.."

"Hey twilight" spike said, tugging at your ear. "spacing out again"

"So If your a witch, and he's a... "

"some witches call magic-less humans magless, i despise that name, really I do. But this guy is a thug. he attacked me just before I got sucked in here. so hes just a stupid magless in my eyes" The human glared at the sleeping human with anger and disappointment on its face.

"So this human just attacked you? why?" Fluttershy mustered her will to ask.

Because witches and "magless" are enemies and are at war.

lightning struck the window again, illuminating the humans face with blunt fury .

"Ok who is doing that?" You say out of annoyance.

You head towards the window and to see a trail of rainbow stream over the rooftops and into the clouds above
~guess it wasn't a storm after all

"So what of this war?" you ask the human.


{Anon Pov}
Everything happened quite quickly
The room was filled with a cloud of dust followed by some stomping and more crashes.
When the dust cleared, you were now on the ground under a snarling, blue Pegasis.

"What are you doing to my friends Alien!" The feminine looking stallion shouts into your ear.

You didn't know what to say to this, you also weren't about to take anything from somepony so much shorter than you.

"D-Dude Pony ... thing, would you be so kind as to GETOFFME" You shout back.

"Rainb-" Twilight started

"DUDE??!?! That's what you think I am, a dude??" The Gender confusing pegasis shouted.

"Rainbow" Twilight repeated

You get the sense from the pony's reaction that it is indeed NOT a Dude.
"Its a figure of speech" you deadpan

"Some figure of speech, I'm not getting off until you answer my question: What kind of creature are you and what are you doing in Fluttershy's house" She points to the yellow pegasis who was now hiding behind twilight who now looked like she was about to burst.

"You ponies are all sorts of weird aren't you" You say to the bunch
You turn back to The rainbow pony

"I don't have to answer to somepony who is nowhere near my size. I'm fed up of being attacked all the time because of who I am!" You reach your hand out to twilight, the wand she was holding shakes and rips itself from her grip flew to your hand. You then point it right between the pony's nose, her eyes narrow at the tip of the glowing red rod.

"I won't ask again. Please get off me, Or I will turn you into a Rainbow tailed rabbit" You say sternly.

She snaps out of her moderate daze and laughs, pushing the wand out of her face.
"Ha! you honestly expect me to believe that stick can turn me into a rabbit? Ha that sounds like magic, and only unicorns and witches can do magic. everyone knows witches are nothing but stupid Halloween characters for fillies. and you don't have a horn so your not a unicorn. So what are you? some sort of witch?"

It was interesting how she put all that together.

"Dudepony, you don't even know. "

The wand makes a ringing noise followed by a blinding light.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 20 Minutes Later-

"You didn't have to turn her into a rabbit." Twilight scolded.

"#$%#$@@" The rainbow bunny shouted in her new found rabbit language, no one but Fluttershy could understand her now.
What concerned you most was the weird white bunny hiding under the table making weird seductive expressions to the rainbow bunny. Rainbow Hop (What you call her now) Can no longer move due to Fluttershy's vice cuddle grip.

"Change her back, I'm sure she learned her lesson now." Twilight said. She had a stern look as if she wasn't going to take no for a answer.

You sigh.. you were having fun with this.
You raise your wand once more. It begins to ring again following that was a glow that slowly increased on the tip.
Just when the wand's brightness reached its prime, A loud crackling replaced the ringing, The Glow decreased to a more sombre red until there was no glow left at all.

"Well dammit." You say pouting.

"What happened, what's wrong?" Twilight said to you, a slight panic tone occupied her voice.

"Seems that I have run out of magic." you bluntly say.

Twilight shouted in your ear. These ponies really need to learn volume control.

"You can If you are using a wand without a sorcerer's stone powering it." you reply which was followed by a tiny nervous laugh.

"Well when can it be used again?" Lyra says.

"Dunno, until I find some sort of sorcerer's stone or something to substitute for it I guess"

"Well you can wait!" Twilight said, ripping rabbitdash from fluttershy's grip which primed a small yelp from the yellow pegasis. "I'm going to see if I can change her back" Twilight said, storming out of the cottage.

With Twilight gone,
You, fluttershy and lyra took the time to get to know each other.
You spent some time explaining how your planet works and about the magic and history more in depth. You and Lyra had a short... well, decently timed Q&A session. The rest of the day went be quite quickly, you apologized for turning the blue pony into a rabbit which the fluttershy and Lyra forgived.

With nothing else to do, the three of you decided to play some Marenoply™ which seemed oddly enough like the game monopoly you played as a child.

In depth in the game nopony noticed another human get up and sneak into the kitchen, grabbing a knife.

To be continued
