My Littlest Pet Shop: Escape from Equestria
With much help from nyc2dragon
Blythe was inside of a tree.
It had taken a few heartbeats for the dancing violet light to fade from her vision and her blurry sight to clear up, but once she could see clearly, she was certain of it. She was in a library—that she could tell from the multiple bookshelves lining the walls, decked with what must have been thousands of books—but the wood walls that couldn't be faked even by the best wallpaper designer told her that yes, she was inside of a tree.
"W-where are we now?" Zoe groaned, staggering to her paws and looking around her with wide ice blue colored eyes.
Twilight shook out her navy-blue mane—cut in a bowl style, Blythe noticed—and grinned. "This is my home—the Ponyville library. Isn't it just wonderful?" The unicorn seemed over-excited, and this fact was partially making Blythe nervous.
"Lots of books," Vinnie commented. The gecko's eyes were half closed, and he appeared to be bored by it all. It was almost funny—indeed, Blythe noticed Pepper seemingly holding back a loud laugh.
The lavender unicorn stared at the green lizard, open mouthed. "That's…all you have to say? About this place?"
The lizard looked around, his eyes still half closed. Shrugging, Vinnie commented, "And we're in some big tree." His voice was so indifferent Blythe had to stifle a laugh; Pepper actually laughed out loud.
Twilight looked like she was going to blow a fuse.
To avoid an all out war between the unknowing gecko and the lavender unicorn, Blythe stepped in the way and turned to Twilight. "Now, we all have questions. Do you have any answers for us?"
Still staring at Vinnie as if her looks could kill, the unicorn responded, "I can try my best, but I can't guarantee everything that you know will be answered."
"Okay, then…what's the square root of 628?" Pepper challenged, the skunk's rose colored eyes narrowed playfully, her tail bushed up over her head.
She probably thought that Twilight couldn't get it. Blythe was thinking the same thing. But in about two seconds flat, the unicorn responded, almost in a bored tone, "25.0599281722833355769907296315 06."
Everyone stared at her, their eyes wide in amazement. Vinnie's jaw actually dropped. "Y-you're like a genius horse!" he commented, eyes still wide. Twilight grinned, a rosy pink blush forming at her cheeks.
"Now, on to more serious questions," Zoe interrupted, glaring at Pepper. "How can you understand us? Where we come from, Blythe is the only one who's not an animal that can tell what we're saying. Why can you, all of a sudden?"
"Simple," the unicorn responded. Her horn lit up with a pinkish glow and a red book sitting next to her was levitated so that Zoe could see it clearly. "This is Star Swirl the Bearded's Guide to Advanced and Complex Magic. One of the first spells he was able to create was one that enabled us ponies to communicate with creatures that weren't native to the land of Equestria."
Penny lifted one eyebrow, clearly doubting this. "If we're the first non-native creatures you've seen, then why would that spell be invented in the first place?" The panda's voice was rising in volume, getting louder and louder, and almost a bit shrill, telling Blythe that she was either very angry or very nervous. Maybe she was a mixture of both.
Twilight smiled knowingly, as if hoping that someone would ask that question. "That's a fascinating story, and I'd be happy to tell you. But later—some ponies might try to come to the library. If they see you…" The unicorn's violet eyes flashed over to Blythe, making the girl confused, "…they'd freak out. Who knows if they'd try to capture you, use you for experiments…no, this won't do. I have to do something, but what?"
Russell looked as if he was about to say something again in protest but Minka interrupted him. "Do you know how we got here?" the monkey asked, wrapping her tail around Twilight's neck and pulling herself up to rest on the unicorn's neck. "Because all I remember was a bunch of pretty colors, like flash, and then blues and greens and pinks and oranges…ooh, oranges…that makes me hungry…but then the world was like BOOM! And we woke up here!"
The unicorn blinked, twisting her head slightly to peer out of the corner of one eye at the spider monkey, who grinned in response. Twilight laughed. "You have to meet Pinkie," she murmured, almost to herself, but the whisper was audible for Blythe; the unicorn used her magic to begin flipping through the pages of the large red book again, apparently searching for something.
"…let's see, we have shrinking spells…"
"I'd like to be small," Minka chirped. "I could be like a bug, like an ant, or a bumblebee, or a wasp…but then I'd be all mean and no one would like me…"
Twilight ignored her this time and continued flipping. "…hmm…don't think we can do anything with love potions…"
Zoe poked Sunil at this point, and the mongoose yelped. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel whispered something in the magician's ear and a cherry red tint appeared on his cheeks. Pushing Zoe away, he turned back to Twilight. Blythe wondered what that little exchange could have meant.
"…here's the spell I used for all of you guys to understand me, and communicate…"
"Don't need that anymore," Vinnie said loudly, his stomach rumbling. "Hey, say…do you have any grub? I could really go for some—"
Penny whacked him on the back of the head. "Drop it, Vinnie. We're trying to get home, remember? Then you can eat all of the dried flies you want, and watch the season premier of Shake-A-Leg."
Twilight seemed to hear none of this; she just kept on flipping through the book, murmuring to herself. Blythe sat there, feeling a little awkward; the unicorn seemed to notice how the girl was rocking back and forth, looking uncomfortable and said in an indifferent tone, "You can look around the library if you want. Just don't let anypony other than me see you."
"Will do," Blythe nodded and got to her feet. The seven pets looked up at her, confused expressions on their faces, and the girl sighed, leaning down on one knee. "You guys look around too," she murmured.
"This place is weird," Russell noted, looking around nervously. "I'm not sure if we should trust this weird unicorn…"
"If she's the only way we can get home, then we have to trust her," Blythe murmured. "Come on, Rusty, give it a shot…" The girl's eyes softened, and she grasped the hedgehog's shoulders. "Let that small side of Fun Russell come out, just until we can find our way back to Downtown City…"
The brown and tan hedgehog looked over at the rest of the pets, who were running around looking at books and investigating the strange building. He sighed, his green eyes turning to the floor. "Okay…just for now, though. If this all turns out to be a fraud, don't blame me for not trying, because I did…"
A sudden yelp from Twilight alerted everybody. Turning to look at the lavender unicorn, Blythe noticed that her eyes were narrowed in excitement. "This is going to be a fun spell…if I do it right," she murmured, half to herself. Then turning to Blythe, she grinned, almost maliciously.
"What?" the girl asked, twiddling her thumbs nervously.
Twilight Sparkle placed the red-covered book, now open, on the ground, and then looked up at Blythe with a mischievous grin. "I'll tell you the story of your kind in Equestria…and then I'm turning you into a pony."
AN: All shall be answered in the next chapter, which will be called "Tales and Transformation"... and then you'll understand what this "legend" Twilight keeps talking about is, along with why she seems to know what humans are. I don't intend to leave any loopholes in this story, so if you see any, they will all be covered, I promise.
And BTW, I used a calculator for the square root of 628. I'm pretty good at math, but not THAT good! ^^"
