Author's note: This is a Slayers\My Little Pony Crossover but no prior knowledge of either show will be required to enjoy the fic as there will be many divergences (to both MLP and Slayers). Twilight will have many lines like a narrator that only she can hear. These are pretty much just her thoughts, but they will not be in traditional quotes. They will be presented like 'this'.
I feel also I should note while the first chapter is pretty much a scene for scene retelling of the first half of episode 1 of Slayers the story will be taking major divergences as the plot moves on and the characters become more developed. Chapter 2 was just posted and you will still see some parallels between the 2 stories but they will become less distinguishable as I move forward. While this is a world very much like the one from the Slayers universe many of the themes from My Little Pony will crossover. Friendship truly is the most powerful of all magic and will become the most important element in the series.
Things may start the same and the over all goal may be the same. But, the journey in between will be about self discovery and opening your heat to others.
Inside of a large camp at the base of a mountain there were dozens of ponies walking about and drinking. A few fires and many torches were lighting the camp for the night. The ponies were all very rough looking sporting scars and even a few with eye patches. All of the ponies seemed to be armed with swords or daggers hanging from belts. They wore little to no clothing but some did sport small pieces of armor such as a breast plate or shoulder guards. On their flanks were their cutie marks, all of which seemed sinister in nature: swords, cross bones, and bags of money just to name a few.
Sitting under one of the open air tents watching the merry making of the ponies and the camp was a large, tan earth pony with black rings around his eyes. With a smile on his face he reached a hoof into the bag next to him and took out a hoof-full of coins and threw them into the crowd "Listen up ponies! You all did a great job out there today, so here are some of the bits we took!" The other ponies cheered and grabbed the bits as they hit the ground.
The large earth pony leaned back in his chair just in time to see a large ball of fire about three feet wide hit the center of the camp and explode sending ponies and pieces of the camp flying into the air. The force of the explosion knocked the earth pony to the ground and knocked the wind out of him. He heard screaming and more explosions and when he looked up from his spot on the ground he saw her... His worst nightmare in fact the nightmare of all bandits. She was a small, purple unicorn with dark purple hair with a slightly lighter streak going through it. On her flank was a purple star. On her back was a cape that had a pair of ornate shoulders, and hanging from her belt was a rapier. She had a grin on her face as her horn lit up with magic once again and sent another fireball into the crowd. The bandit earth pony stood up and began backing away only to be noticed by her while she was charging another spell. "It's you!" he shouted "That no good bandit killer Twilight Sparkle!" She grinned more and her horn began to glow brighter "I'm out of here!" He yelled as he turned and began to run only to be hit by the spell the unicorn was preparing.
With the camp destroyed and the remaining ponies running for there lives the purple pony made it to the back of the camp and entered a cave at the foot of the mountain inside. There lay a horde of treasure that she helped herself to. Pulling out many items with the bits such as gem stones, a dagger, and a statue of the goddess Celestia and loading them into a bag. 'And thus Twilight Sparkle sorcery genius lives as a warrior of justice defeating the evils bandits of Equestria. This one den of wickedness is no more, but as long as evil exists in this world Twilight's battle will never be over. Keep fighting,Twilight! Never say die, Twilight!' With her looting done Twilight left the cave.
My Little Slayers
Rescue? The Swordspony arrival!
The next day, Twilight was making her way through the woods and sighed to herself. 'Ugh, it is so obvious I am being followed,' she thought. 'Just because I helped myself to a little tiny bit of their treasure they aren't going to leave me alone. Well better get this over with.' With another sigh she runs ahead a few more feet, turns around and shouts "I know you are out there you can stop hiding now, come out, and face me!"
A blue earth pony with an eye patch and a headband comes out from behind a tree and on to the path that Twilight was walking on. In his mouth he is holding his sword. "Dew yer fink yer..."
A sweat drop appears on Twilight's head. "Um, what was that?" she asks.
Blinking a few times the blue pony puts his sword back in it's sheath on his belt. Twilight rolls her eyes "I said do you think you can get away with what you did to the boss? We came here to carve some payback out of your flank piece by piece but...but now I've decided I really don't want to fight you."
With a slight laugh Twilight spoke up, "Well it looks like you ponies are smarter then I thought you were. Bye!" As she turned to walk away he grabbed her cape in his teeth and pulled on it so she stopped. "Something else?" she asked.
"Don't get me wrong," the earth pony said. "The only reason I don't want to fight you is because I know you would kick our tails and I would rather make it through the day in one piece."
"Yeah that is true"
"You are quite the macho little filly. If you were any more macho I would think you were a little colt!" He says with a laugh at the end.
'Maybe he isn't as dumb as I thought but he is pretty close.'
Looking around the woods Twilight sees about a dozen more ponies hiding behind trees.
"We've all been talking about what you did last night. How you came in and started blowing everything up with that magic of yours, then offing the boss with that flaming pony number, and then taking all of our loot before we could do anything about it! We couldn't have done that well ourselves!"
"Why thank you!" Twilight says with a smile. "But I really have to be going."
"Wait! Listen, the reason I followed you out here was so I could track you down and kill you. You know to avenge the boss? Honor among thieves and all that but me and the other ponies have decided we want to offer you a chance to join up with us, 'The Dragon Fangs'!" A smile crosses his face as he watches for Twilight's reaction.
"The Dragon Fangs?" She inquires. "I take it back you are a lot dumber then I thought you were."
"Oh, come on? You join us and give us back the loot you stole and we will let this whole thing be water under the bridge, baby." He says with a wink.
"Oh, I'm bad but I am not bad enough to join up with a bunch of lowlifes like you ponies." Twilight says as she sticks her nose up slightly.
"Ooo, well I just love a mare that knows what she wants." The earth pony says as he inches closer to her.
'Oh, just once I want to be hit on by somepony who isn't a career criminal.' Sighing, Twilight yells at the earth pony, "get lost you creep!"
The earth pony jumps back. "You bitch! I offer you a deal and you thank me by calling me a creep? Get ready to die!" The earth pony draws his sword.
"Oh, stock dialog I am so afraid!" Twilight says rolling her eyes and begins to charge a spell in her horn. The other ponies all jump from the woods and surround her. "Really, this is all of you?" she says with a laugh.
The blue earth pony tried moving the sword to a position in his mouth so he can speak and still hold it. It was hard but not impossible and this time he managed it. "What do you mean I just have to give the word and they will slice you up!"
"That's it. Get ready to die!" The ponies all start moving in on twilight her horn glowing brighter but just as they were almost to her they hear someone call out from behind them.
"Y'all wait a minute!" all of the bandits stop and turn around and Twilight's spell fizzles out. Behind them stands a large red stallion with a blond mane and a apple cutie mark. He wears a blue breast plate and has a sword hanging from his side."You ain't gonna hurt no one. Now y'all turn tail an' run an' maybe I'll let ya live"
"You stay out of this! Who do you think you are anyways!" one of the other ponies calls out.
"I'd tell y'all my name... But y'all would get it dirty,"was his reply. He grins showing his teeth which sparkle.
"What!" The bandit's replies.
Twilight just sighs and looks down. "Oh great it's a battle of cliche stallions"
"Get this pony first then the girl!"The blue pony shouts and the other bandits attack.
Moving quickly the red stallion draws his sword and begins taking down the other ponies
Twilight looks on in amazement. 'I've never seen anypony move like him before! Should I help or... wait, I've read about this! This is where the mare in distress acts all scared and shrieky!' Putting on a forced frightened face Twilight began screaming for help. "Ahhh, help save me! Save me!"
In a matter of seconds they were all laid out on the path except one. The blue earth pony looks at his fallen comrades and did the only reasonable thing he ran.
Twilight nods, "That wasn't half bad."
Turning towards Twilight and putting away his sword, the red stallion speaks gallantly, "are you alright ma'am... Ugh." Upon seeing Twilight he stops speaking and stares at her.
'He must be taken aback by my beauty. If there is one thing I have it is confidence in my good looks; my big purple eyes and my extra petite body have no doubt made him speechless.' Twilight thinks with a small smile on her face.
"Oh it's just a filly" He says disappointed.
"What!" Twilight exclaims.
"Here I thought it was gonna be a hot mare and instead its just some flat flanked little filly"
'So what if I am a little small for my age... and a little under developed, too. Horseapples! Why do they always find the things you are sensitive about.' Twilight thinks as she turns away.
"And here I was riskin' m' life fer a twig," the red stallion mumbles.
'It's times like this I wish my body was better and my hearing worse. He should feel lucky for meeting me!'
"Dern, I'm all out'a luck"
'Really? Ugh, I wasn't even in any danger but I guess I should thank him for his help. It never hurts to be polite. That is how I was raised anyways!' Taking a deep breath and putting on a happy face Twilight turns around. "Thank you so much for saving me!"
"Oh, no need fer thanks little filly," he turns around and faces her. "Now, little filly where are you folks? You ain't out here alone are ya'?"
"Little filly?" Twilight asks with a slight twitch in her eye.
"It is dangerous for little kids to be out without their folks around. You didn't get lost did ya?" he asks sounding genuinely concerned.
"No I am out here by myself."
"Well now we can't have that. Here, let me walk you home."
"Now, wait a second"
"Which way is your home?"
"Is it this way?" he points in a random direction.
"HEY!" Twilight shouts making the larger pony stop and look at her. "What... What I meant to say was I am traveling on my own. I am heading to Trottingham."
"By yerself?" he asks and Twilight nods. "Now we can't be having that. I will bring you there myself. So ya don' have to worry I'll keep ya' safe"
"Yer lost and yer defenseless. I couldn't possibly let you go on your own."
"Well actually..." Twilight starts.
"No. Ain't no need to thank me."
"Um, thanks for your help but I really need to get going to Trottingham."
"Don' you worry we will get ya' there in no time" he says with a nod.
"You're not going to just let me go on my own are you?" She asks looking at the ground.
"Nope" is his simple reply.
'Ugh. Will this guy catch a clue? It is going to take 10 days to get to Trottingham and if I have to put up with big brother here the whole way I may go crazy.'
"Okay, lets get goin'. Allow me to introduce myself my name is Big Macintosh but folks just call me 'Big Mac'..."
'I think I liked the pony with the eye patch better.'
"...and I am a traveling mercenary and farmer." Big Mac says with a smile on his face.
'Oh well, he seems like a nice enough pony. He is totally clueless but he is kind of sweet and he did fight those bandits for me so he can't be all that bad.' "Oh, all right. Let's get going." Twilight says with a smile finally coming back to her face.
"Eeeeyup. By the way, I forgot to ask what is your name little filly?"He asks as he begins to head down the path.
"My name is Twilight. Twilight Sparkle!"
This is my first fic in quite some time and this is really just to help me get my creative juices flowing once again and there will updates on my other fics at some point in the near future!
