The Equestrian Encounter
By, Jesse Hansen
I was laying in my bed wondering is there any purpose for my life other than being your average joe off the street. I was beginning to pace around my room and all of a sudden a bright light began to grow in the room. I turned around slowly not knowing what to expect and to my shocked surprise there was this green and black vertical disk. I went to touch it and my hand went through it. I reared back in shock. I then spent the next few moments dwelling on what this might be. I then concluded, Screw it, Im going for it. I jumped into the disk, the next thing I knew was that I was on the ground spitting out dirt and when I looked around all I saw was trees which indicated I was in some kind of forest. So I set off to find a way out.
A few of what seemed to be hours, I heard a few voices in the distance and I decided to check it out. I hid away in the bushes a little ways away and to my shocking surprise I saw what I thought to be ponies, and to be exact, it was Twilight and Zecora. I could only come to one conclusion I was in Equestria, but how was that possible? It is just a TV show. I walked out of the bushes. At that moment we all froze, I was thinking, Im such an idiot, ponies dont know that I exist but then Twilight walked up to me, the look on her face was blank. I was shaking in fear that something bad would happen, but twilight said, who and what are you So then I explained what happened before I was sent here. Twilight seemed to understand but was confused at the same time, then she said, Follow me, you need a disguise and I have a spell that might just do the trick.
the next few minutes while I was walking next to Twilight felt like an eternity. I was having thoughts of love toward Twilight, but immediately pushed those thoughts out of my mind because I knew it wasnt possible for a pony to feel the same way, I knew I was out of luck if I tried to explain my feelings. I couldnt bare to look at her, but I had to when we carried on conversations about our worlds. Ive always liked her as a TV show character, and yet I cared about her and that feeling ate at my heart. I had no clue when I would snap, but until then I would have to deal with it.
It was barely 15 minutes later that we arrived at Zecoras house. I was in a half daze because I was still shocked to be in Equestria, when Twilight asked me, are you ready because im going to cast the spell. what more could I say but, yes. A light began to grow in the room, But as quick as it started it was done. I didnt feel much different until I looked in the mirror that Twilight handed to me. I about passed out. I didnt believe what I saw looking back in the mirror and neither did Twilight, I was a pony alright, but an alicorn? at that moment Twilight spoke, how did this happen, you were meant to become a pony that matched your characteristics, oh wait, I get it now, but how was I capable of this? then I said, um I think we need to get to some place to sleep. We arrived at what I assumed to be ponyville. It was nighttime and nopony was about.So we were able to get to Twilights house in secret. Twilight made me a bed and what else was there to do but sleep, of course it was a long day after all. once the lights were out I said to myself So somebody or something out there actually listens.
The next day I awoke with a commotion in the tree house, and it sounded like Twilight had guests. I got up and decided to check it out, but again I hoped it wasnt a bad idea. I entered the main room in the house and there was Celestia. she stared at me but then she said, Good morning, and welcome to Equestria in return I said, Thank you, its an honor to meet you, so um... Im assuming that Twilight explained everything correct? Celestia answered, Yes, but Twilight had no need to tell me, I brought you here at that moment I was confused to no end so I asked, Why did you bring me here then? Celestia answered quite quickly, Theres a threat to our kingdom, the Changelings are returning and we fear that they might not be able to be stopped without help so I searched Equestria for anypony that may have the strength to help, but found none so I decided to search the universe for a good candidate for the job and that I concluded was you I then said, I would be honored to fight by your side.
I didnt see any changeling activity until a few weeks later in the afternoon. I heard a knock on the door so I told twilight I would get it. I open the door and I see a yellow unicorn. I greeted this pony and ask what she needed, but at that moment a somewhat threatening grin grew on her face. I knew something was up, but what exactly? Then it hit me, there was no other answer and she knew it just as much as I did. I gave it a hard stare which was a mistake. The unicorn or should I say changeling lunged at me. I was quick to dodge but couldnt get turned around in time. the changeling had me on the ground and I was struggling to hold it back, but I remembered that I was an alicorn so I used my unicorn powers to hold it in the air while I bound its legs together with some rope that was behind me. When I was done with the changeling I saw a dark dot in the sky heading right for me. I went to run, but I was too late, Chrysalis had me pinned against the wall of a shop so I tried reasoning and I knew just how to do it. So, Chrysalis or should I call you by your real name, Luna? at this she revealed herself and said, So, How did you figure it out? I then replied, Oh, its simple really, during the canterlot wedding when said Chrysalis was attacking you were nowhere to be found, also on nightmare night you were able to shapeshift into the mare of darkness which you displayed when you came back from the moon. Luna didnt reply and just left in a huff. I could tell that something was not right, it was as if the effect of the elements of harmony wore off or worse yet, never worked at all, but thats just me. I could be completely wrong after all. Just then I felt a dark feeling fall upon me. I looked around frantically looking for the source of it. My eyes just happen to land on a tall slender figure which I recognised in an instant. It was Discord and I could only think that he had bad intentions for me. Before I knew it he was in my mind toying with me, mocking me and then he started to put my mind into a bind twisting my conscious state into a knot all I could wonder was where is Fluttershy. Everything for the next few seconds was a blur but I was able to make out two figures around me, Twilight holding me in a tight hug and Fluttershy floating in on the scene. Then I lost the fight to hold my consciousness and everything went black.
when I woke up I was laying on a bed in Twilights tree house. Twilight was holding me tight with tears streaming from her eyes. Trying not to startle her I said quietly T...Twilight She then stopped me and said, Dont, you need to rest youve been through a lot. A smile grew on both of our faces and just as I went to close my eyes once more a voice entered my head and said darkly, The fun has only just begun...
