The Rogue Wolf


E

My name is Ocellus, and I am a changeling- an Infiltrator. I was bred and raised to deceive other creatures by changing my shape and appearance to resemble theirs, to absorb love and other positive emotions and bring the resultant energy back to my hive for our continued survival. For thousands of years my kind existed in secret amongst the other species of Equus, forced by fear to hide our existence lest we be seen as dangerous parasites.

Then came the ill-fated invasion of Canterlot by Chrysalis and her hive, which exposed the existence of changelings to all in the worst way possible.

My hive, and several others, chose then to reveal themselves to the governments of Equus, in hopes that we could disperse fears about our kind and prove that we were not inherently dangerous. Many of the hive's members were given freedom to go abroad as ambassadors of a sort, to show that we could contribute to a society as ourselves.

With my medical background and my abilities as an emotivore, I chose to pursue a career in psychiatry, to help those affected by trauma or other emotional issues more directly than others could. And I also chose to go to a place where few other changelings had dared before the Canterlot invasion- Earth, home of humanity, a species at once alien yet so much like the ones we share Equus with.

Through hard work, perseverance and a desire to help others, I have built a good reputation here. Hundreds of patients of many species have entered my office for help from my unique methodology, as I literally devour the pain they feel from a traumatic event, letting them more easily come to terms with it. I take pride in what I do, and I feel that I've made a positive difference in the worlds.

Today feels as though it'll be like any other... until two patients whose pain is a bit closer to home than I'd like make an appearance.

Peter Collins. Full-time copy clerk; part-time competitive shooter and sketch artist. Not the most glorious life, but for an independent 26-year-old looking to make his way up the corporate ladder, it's not a bad start.

But the thing about one-in-a-million chances is that somebody has to be that one. And Pete has just found himself the winner of a bizarre cosmic lottery, giving him a free one-way trip into a land of magic and wonder: Equestria.

Unfortunately, the locals are skittish, distrustful of anything not their own, and outright terrified of whatever might be threatening to them. And with no way to speak to or understand them, what might have been a trip through paradise becomes a journey through a living hell, where the simplest of misunderstandings can bring the most dire of consequences. Alone, confused and desperate, Peter wages a one-man battle to escape a land seemingly out to get him, searching for a way back home, while the forces that protect this magical nation- ignorant of his goals and terrified that he may be a threat- do all they can to capture him.

How far can fear push us apart, what can it push us to do, when communication is impossible?

What do a globetrotting archaeologist, a time-tossed samurai, and six magical multicolored ponies have in common? Not much!

(Rated T for violence and gunplay.)

This story started as a half-hearted NaNoRiMo project and an effort to break through some writer's block on other projects. It's also a major departure from my typical type of writing- written in third-person omniscient rather than third-person subjective (which is not an easy transition to make). It's certainly not my first piece of fanfiction, but it's the broadest crossover I've ever attempted, and getting all of the characters to stay true to form while interacting with each other is something of a challenge. But hey, how do we learn if we never challenge ourselves?

A minor note here- I've taken a bit of liberty with the powers of earth ponies. They've been said to have "a connection with the earth", and I've taken that to mean the ability to sense things about the terrain around them.
