Here's another chapter! In this one, the Eds get acquainted with Twilight and her friends and learn where the heck they are! I could have broken this down into two chapters, but I think this makes up for the short first chapter, no?
As Eddy's eyes began to open, he could only see dark shapes, not being able to make them out. He tried to get up, but for some reason, his body felt… different. As he looked down, he saw two shapes that he thought were his hands. However, as his vision began to sharpen, he saw that they were actually… hooves.
Though he didn't know what caused it, Eddy began to chuckle insanely. Why was he seeing hooves? Because he was obviously in a dream, probably inspired by his latest scam. Why were the arms attached to the hooves yellow? Because he liked the color yellow. Yep, he would soon wake up from this very weird dream…
A disgruntled 'ooooohhhh…' came from the left of him. Turning his head (which strangely felt off), he turned to see a peculiar sight. There was a red horse, only a little bigger than him, with a black tail. It didn't have a normal mane, instead having three large hairs stick out from under…
Eddy eyes went wide as he recognized that ski cap, and who was wearing it.
"D-double D?" he asked, afraid of the answer. The horse turned its head, groggy eyes set on the new Eddy.
"Eddy… is that you?" the red colt replied, raising his arms to rub his eyes… then finding out the horrible truth.
"Egad, man!" shouted Double D, now fully awakened. "I've been polymorped into an equestrian! An Equus ferus caballus! Someone, wake me from this nightmare!"
Not one to displease, Eddy slugged him in the shoulder with his hooves, with confirmed that he was also a horse.
Rubbing his shoulder, Double D kept on talking. "Well, that disproves my theory."
"Well, how do you know that I'm not the one dreaming, Mr. Smarty-Pants?" said Eddy, closing his eyes and wearing a smirk on his face.
Rubbing his shoulder, Eddy now wore a scowl on his face. "Well, that debunks my idea too."
Meanwhile, Double D held his hooves against his head, shaking it slowly. "B-but how is this possible? It defies everything and anything I know about multiple sciences! T-there must be a logical explanation to this!"
"Logic, smogic, it's simple: we've been turned into ponies that someone forgot to color right." Glancing up at Edd's forehead, his eyes beheld another sight. "And… it seems like someone gave you something extra, 'Charlie'. Eddy said, trying to stifle a grin.
Trying to figure out what he meant, Edd raised a hoof to his forehead and hit something; judging by Eddy's statement, Double D guessed this was a horn, and mixing it with his horse form, made him a unicorn. However, Eddy's own major feature was pointed out to him soon enough.
"Are those wings I see, Eddy Mcgee?" said Ed, pointing to Eddy's back. Sure enough, there were feathered wings on his back, yellow like the rest of his coat, except for his tail, which was bla
"What the-? Ed, how long have you been awake?"
Ed, which was a green stallion with a short orange mane, pondered this question.
"Well, I woke up a while ago, but you two were so cute napping, so I just stared at you until you woke up," said Ed, with a creepily happy smile on his face.
"But where are we?" shouted Double D.
"Whoa, that's the last time a try a spell like that for a while…" said another voice. Looking over to the wall, the Eds noticed a purple unicorn and a pink pony that begun to stand up. Shaking their head to clear off dazedness, their attention quickly fell to the three Eds.
Silence took hold of them as each group faced one another. Finally, it was decided that Double D would scream first.
"AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!" screamed Edd, at the impossibility of it all.
"AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!" screamed Twilight Sparkle.
"AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!" screamed Eddy.
"AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!" screamed Ed.
"Oh, are we having a screaming contest? Let me join! !" Pinkie Pied screamed, and she didn't stop until she noticed everyone else had stopped screaming and had begun to stare at her. "That must mean I win, I guess."
"Okay, someone's going to answer my questions, and the first one being how did we get here?" asked Eddy.
Before Twilight had a chance to explain, Ed did that before her.
"It is simple, Eddy. We have entered a wormhole and were spewn into an alternate universe!" Ed spread out his arms to achieve dramatic affect. "Simple."
"Your simple, Ed." stated Eddy.
"Actually, he's kind of correct," said Twilight. "I was practicing a spell when it accidently brought you here. I just have to get the spell book…"
Her eyes looked around until they fell upon an awful sight: Spike, sleeping, lightly breathing out a tongue of flame, and holding a burnt book close to him.
"IS THAT THE BOOK?" Twilight screamed. Spike (who had slept through the previous shouting) now woke up.
"Mmm…what…" Spike said sleepily, rubbing his eyes. His first sight was Twilight glaring down at him.
"What?" he asked. He than peered down to the book he had burned in his sleep.
"Oh… I did it again, didn't I?"
"Yes, you did, and because of that, I can't send these three," she pointed to the Eds, "home."
"WHAT?" yelled every Ed. Eddy lunged at Spike, but was held back by Ed and Double D.
"If I had my poorly drawn fingers I'd strangle you right now!" Eddy yelled at the purple dragon. Spike gulped.
"Now, now, let's not panic," said Twilight. "I know you must be scared, but let me assure you, I will alert Princess Celestia immediately of this. Maybe she has the answer of how to get you guys back."
Twilight returned to Pinkie Pie's side. "In the meanwhile, we should get to know each other better. I'm Twilight Sparkle, this is Pinkie Pie, and this is my assistant dragon, Spike."
Ed eyes went wide as he realized where he had seen them before. For, believe it or not, Ed was actually a brony.
It all started one fateful summer day. Sarah had thrown Ed in her room to clean up the mess he made last night (don't ask). While she was outside playing with Jimmy, he noticed a video she had left on her computer. It was My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic episode 1: The Mare in the Moon. Instantly, he was hooked. Whenever he got the chance, he got on a computer to watch the colorful little mares. He eventually watched all the episodes, but was also unfortunate enough to read Cupcak
"AH! NO! EVIL FANFIC! GET OUT OF ED'S HEAD!" he yelled, pounding his head against the cement floor. He received very weird looks from the other trio. Edd gave a sheepish grin.
"Um, just ignore him," he said, chuckling weakly. He than cleared his throat.
"Well, um, I suppose introductions are in order, yes. This is Eddy, that's Ed," Double D pointed to Ed, who had finally stopped his self infliction to remove that awful memory from his mind. "And they call me Double D."
"Why do they call you that?" asked Spike.
"Because my name is also Edd, but with two d's" said Eddward. He nodded his head in understanding.
"So, what should we do now that you're here?" asked Twilight. Pinkie Pie immediately spoke up.
"Oh, I know! We should take them around town, show them the sights, and introduce them to our friends!" she turned to the Eds. "Pleeeeeeeeeeeease? Pwetty please?"
"Oh, alright, since we got nothing better to do, I guess we can see what this other dimension looks like," said Eddy. Pinkie Pie let out a small "Yayyyyyyyy!" and preceded to rush out of the basement, followed by Twilight and Spike. The Eds followed them outside, but not before Ed had this interesting thing to say.
"End of first half, insert gray line below."
Though finding it hard at first, the Eds eventually learned to walk normally as ponies. They even made some comments about each others appearance.
"Hey, monobrow, look, you finally have a chin!" laughed Eddy.
"Cool hairdo, Eddy!" Ed said back. Looking in the fountain, Eddy saw that his mane was three large black spikes, getting smaller on the way down to his back. Eddy thought he looked rather dashing.
"It seems that you've acquired more than just a new hair style, Eddy," said Edd. Confused at Double D's words, he followed his friends hoof down to his hunches, where he discovered something else about his pony body.
"What the hack is this?" he yelped, spinning around in circles to get a look at this deformity or another.
"Oh, that," said Twilight, not looking at the least worried. "That's just your cutie mark."
"Cutie mark?" questioned Eddy and Edd. Ed nodded his head, knowing what they were talking about.
"A cutie mark appears when a pony finally realizes what they enjoy in life. It's kind of like an image that describes you perfectly. For example…"
Twilight took a closer look at Eddy's mark, which was a cent sign.
"Mmmm… a cent sign. Probably means you like dealing in small money, right?"
"Well, small money for now, but soon I'll be a billionaire!" said Eddy, practically drooling while he was rubbing his hooves together. Twilight rolled her eyes, and then went over to expect Double D's cutie mark.
"A ruler, huh? Must means you like exact measurements."
"Most certainly, yes," responded Double D. Twilight nodded her head as she turned over to Ed.
"And Ed, you have… wait, what is that?" she asked, not sure what she was seeing was true. It looked like a piece of…
"BUTTER TOAST!" Ed shouted in triumph. Twilight let out a chuckle at the stallion's silly behavior when she suddenly noticed where they were at.
"Alright guys, this is the Carousel Boutique, Rarity's home. Please be polite, and try to let it down gently that you're from another dimension." Twilight took a deep breath as she opened the door.
Pinkie Pie, however, had other plans.
Rarity barely got to say "Hello" before Pinkie Pie was jumping all around her.
"Oh-my-gosh-you-would-not-believe-what-happened-today-okay-Twilight-was-experimenting-with-a-new-spell-when-something-happened-and-then-these-three-appeared-and-we-started-to-shout-and-" Pinkie took deep breath before saying
"THEY'RE FROM ANOTHER WORLD!" she practically screamed as she pointed to the Eds.
Twilight facehoof'd. So much for letting it down, though for Pinkie Pie this was pretty gentle.
"Mmmm…another world, you say…" said Rarity calmly. She set her gaze on Edd's ski cap.
"Well, this explains the fashion sense. No one from thisdimension would EVER be caught in that. He let me relieve you of it…"
However, as her hoof reached up to Double D's head, she was blocked by Ed and Eddy.
"NO!" shouted all the Eds.
"What's your problem?' Rarity asked as she retracted her hoof.
Edd cleared his throat. "Miss…Rarity, is it? While I do appreciate the concern, I'm afraid I wear this hat for more… practical reasons."
"Oh, if it's a messy mane I can-" the white unicorn attention was caught by the other Eds, however, as they slowly shook their heads. She immediately knew why he would want to wear such a terrible hat.
"Oh, I didn't think it was used to hide something other than hair…"
Twilight coughed to catch everyone's attention. "It seems we got off at the wrong hoof. Rarity, this is Ed, Edd (or Double D), and Eddy."
"Nice to meet you," said Rarity, and shook each Eds' hoof, even Ed's slightly dirty hoof.
"We're exploring Ponyville with the Eds. Do you want to tag along?" said Twilight.
"Sure, darling, just let me lock up the store," said Rarity, and thus another pony joined their little expedition.
They were now at the outside of Sweet Apple Acres, leaning on the fence, watching Applejack buck off the apples from the trees. After she was done, she went over to the group.
"Howdy ya'll," said Applejack. She glanced over to the Eds. "So, who's yer friends over there?"
After introducing themselves, the Eds told her how they got here. Applejack was skeptical of this.
"Wait, ya'll telling me that these here colts ar' from some 'al-ter-nate' dimension?" The Eds nodded yes.
"You done look like normal ponies to me. How do I know yer telling me the truth?" Applejack asked, raising an eyebrow.
As the Eds tried to think up reasons to prove this, Ed already thought of one. Going over to Double D, Ed grabbed the sides of his head.
"Ed, what are you doin-" he was quickly silenced, however, as Ed laid his lips on Double D's.
Everyone's jaw dropped (Pinkie Pie's actually hit the ground). However, before she (and probably everyone who's reading this) could think of asking the author to change this to M, Ed blew into Edd's mouth. By cartoon physics this blew up his hat like a balloon, which, with Double D holding on for dear life, holding his hat and breath, began to float upward. However, he could not hold in what he wanted so desperately to say.
"Ed ger-" this action caused him to jet all around the sky like a deflating balloon, crashing back right where he was.
Ed had a smile on his face. Not creepy, or pervertish, get a normal smile.
"That…was just…ew," stated Spike.
"Well, I guess I gotten no choice but to 'cept the fact that you aren't round here," said Applejack.
"TOOTHPASTE! SOMEONE, PLEASE!" asked, neigh, demanded Double D. Pinkie Pie pulled a toothbrush that had a bit of toothpaste on it out of nowhere and handed it to Edd. He began to franticly brush his teeth.
"Soooooo, Applejack, want to come with us?" asked Rarity.
Applejack shrugged. "Well, since I've done all my chores, I'm free." With that she hopped over the fence to join the group. So they all departed to Rainbow Dash's place, with a now Ed germ free Double D right behind them.
When the Eds reached Rainbow Dash's house, they were impressed to say the least. A house made of clouds will do that to a person.
Rainbow Dash practically- no wait, did race out of her house to meet her friends, hovering above them all.
"Hi, Twi," she said, giggling at her own little joke. Her gaze then met the Eds.
"Who do we have here, huh?" asked the rainbow colored mare.
"I'm Double D…"
"And I'm Eddy!" he said, pushing his face close to hers, staring her down. For some reason, he could feel that they had the same thing in common: they wanted to be better than one another.
The stare went on for a long time, and it was getting dark. However, before Twilight could ask them to politely stop, Rainbow Dash broke down, falling on the ground and giggling.
"Alright, little man," which was true, because Eddy was shorter than the average pony, "it seems you've got spunk. I like you." She raised up her hoof to pony fist. Eddy, unsure what to, raised up his own hoof and felt as she lightly tapped it with her own.
"Alright, Rainbow, Eddy, we still got Fluttershy to see," said Rarity.
As they departed together, Eddy spoke up again.
"Did I mention I'm from another dimension?"
After telling Dash how he ended up here, they had finally made it to Fluttershy's house. She was outside, currently feeding the
"CHICKENS!" Ed exclaimed in delight, charging toward his favorite feathered friends. Fluttershy was scared (who wouldn't be if they saw a large green stallion charge up to them?) and promptly fled to behind a tree stump.
As Ed was chasing the chickens, he felt himself being poked by something. When he looked down, he saw a cute bunny with a mean expression poking him with a carrot.
"Ah, cute bunny," said Ed, reaching out to grab him.
"No, Ed!" Eddy and Double D shouted, but it was too late. He had grabbed the bunny and had lifted him very close to his snout…
Ed suddenly remembered why he couldn't hold bunnies.
"Ah…ah…ah….ACHOOO!" sneezed Ed, the force of this sneeze sending him flying back into some tress, crashing into them and making them tumble.
"I'm okay!" said Ed, holding up a hoof for everyone to see. Luckily, he didn't be showing any symptoms.
From behind the tree stump, Fluttershy giggled.
"I am so sorry about Ed," said Double D as he went over to Fluttershy. "I'm afraid he overreacts sometimes."
"T-that's okay," said Fluttershy. "Bu-ut who are you?"
"Well explain on the way back to the library," said Eddy. "The author wants this chapter to be done with already."
And so they did, thankfully saving the author from writing even more wor- wait, what do you mean I still have to… ah, never mind, just keep reading.
"Wow…" said Fluttershy, even softer than usual. "I would have never guessed you were from another dimension."
"And please, don't ask us to verify it… please," said Double D, shuttering at the very unpleasant memory.
"Well, it's getting dark out and I have to get home," said Twilight. The other Elements of Harmony agreed, and the Eds than realized something important.
"Hey, wait, where are we going to sleep?" asked Eddy.
"Well, I could let you slept over at my place, but only Pegasus ponies can stand on clouds," said Rainbow Dash.
"Double D, I'm so sorry about almost removing your hat, I want to make it up to you! You can sleep over at the Carousel Boutique tonight."
"Um, thank you…" said Edd uncertainly.
"Big Ed here can stay with me and Macintosh. Maybe he can help around the farm tomorrow."
"Yep! I will be a snug as a bug on a rug next to a slug!" said Ed happily.
There was an awkward moment between them all, as they didn't know what to say. Finally, Double D broke the ice.
"So, it looks like another Mis-edventure for Ed, Edd, 'n Eddy, right?"
"More like Ed, Edd, 'n Pony!" said Ed.
"Hey, Ed, you dropped something!" exclaimed Eddy. Ed looked around until he got the joke. He laughed, which soon spread to all the others. So as they finished laughing, they waved each other farewell and waited to see what the Eds would do next day. They seemed mischievous, but it wouldn't be that must trouble…
Ah ha! A cliffhanger! But before I continue, let me address some questions you probably have for me:
Q1: Can Ed even read or use the computer?
A: Well, the internet is simple today, and he seemed to read his report card well enough, so yes, Ed can read, just if he really wants to, like to pull off comedic effect.
Q2: Will him knowing 'Cupcakes' or other MLP related items ruin the story?
A: I most certainly hope not! Let us not forget, Big Ole Ed is quite forgetful, and if he does remember Cupcakes, he'll try to remove it from his mind through self-cranial infliction. ( e.g. hurt his head.)
Q3: Have you ever read Cupcakes?
A: Well, um, I clicked on the link and read a few paragraphs, but didn't reach the, um, gorey parts. I'll probably have to fully read it someday, but hey, if I can watch HTF, than I can read Cupcakes.
Q4: Do you support Edd/E-
A: NO! NO, NOT AT ALL! I purely did the kiss so Ed can blow Double D up like a balloon like in that one episode. In this story, Ed and Double D are just friends. In fact, Edd tries to forget the incident as soon as possible. So no M/M pairings. But I never said there weren't going to be pairings, did I? Hehehe, just to leave you all on that little note…
Also, the Eds are aware they are in a story/show. So does Pinkie Pie. So get ready for so fourth wall demolition!
Review, for this makes me very happy, and when I'm happy, I write more. Win-win for all of us, huh?
