Oh don't look at me like that. Yes, I'm a brony so what? I had a couple of friends who was into the series and I did not like it at first glance but when I watched the first episode I loved it...so yeah. I hope you enjoy this story. This story is to help grow the Human in Equestria fictions.

[2017 Update] As the vote concludes that you all want me to update my old chapters! I will be trying my best to revise this and I will be changing a few things for any continuity reasons. But not changing the whole thing drastically. It will be the story you all grew up with.
I will also be trying my best to correct mistakes I have made over the past 5 years of writing this story. Tenses is the main factor as I read through this chapter.

Chapter 1: Today's another normal day

In a city called New York City, the roads roaring with cars and horns going off. The people walking down the streets, all day long, every day. Somewhere in this city, a boy who lives a normal life, going to school and doing homework. That sort of stuff. In a school called Walton High School, he is walking down a corridor to attend his next lesson History.
He walks into his classroom along with his classmates, as he took his seat, his teacher comes in...Mr. Philips "Alright, settle down please" he takes out a piece of paper and clicks his pen. "answer your names".

A few names later, the boy's name was called out "Joseph". Joseph clears his throat "Here" Joseph Brooklyn is an average guy. He's 16 years old and has short dark brown hair and his eyes are green. He's mostly quiet around people. His grades are high and were doing well for himself, well, that's what the teachers think. Lately, he has been miserable for the past few months because of his family, Joe's father is always on business trips but he loves his son and is happy for his grades. His mother is quite the opposite, she doesn't love him at all compared to his father, she tends to care more about his big sister. Joe's sister whom he hates the most, she's a selfish, a spoilt brat and cares little for Joe.

"Okay class, take out your books and turn to page 109," Mr Philips said, snapping Joe out of his day dreaming. He got out his history book and turned to page 109.

The school day went by quickly, he walked back home. Joseph Brooklyn entered his home and closed the door going straight to his room, not being greeted by his mother or sister. He saw his mother in the kitchen, smoking and watching TV and his sister talking to her friends on the phone, she is always on the phone and their phone bill is very high. Joe sighed and went upstairs to his room.

Joe collapses on the bed, exhausted from school, he rolls onto his back and stares at the ceiling. Joe with much hesitation, got up from his bed and went to his desk, taking a piece of paper and a pen and starts writing to his father.

'Dear Dad.

Life at school is okay, just like normal, no troubles or anything like that. Just another normal day, Mom and Clare still take no notice of me. I hate it here Dad, I really do, I wished I could come with you. I can't stand it here without you. I wish I could just leave this place and me and you can go to another world. I hope I'll see you on your day off.
Love Joseph.'

Joe goes back to his bed, sighing in relief 'I'll post it when I go to school' he says in his mind, Joe's eyes felt heavy as he slowly drifts off to sleep.

Joseph is dreaming, quite an unusual dream in fact although it could possibly be some sort of memory or nightmare. In this dream Joe is in a dark room sitting on a wooden chair, Joseph looks around, nothing but pitch black and a small gust of cold air blowing onto his uncovered skin. Suddenly a light turns on above him, The human boy jumps in shock! Even dreams can feel real, suddenly a voice came out from the shadows, it wasn't rough but it wasn't soft and yet...there is a hint of malice and satisfaction? "Do you wish to go to another place?" the voice said, echoing in this empty void.

Joe looks frantically around in search of the voice's whereabouts but couldn't pinpoint the source. Joe stutters nervously, it HAD to be a dream "W-what do y-you mean?".

"I want a simple answer. Yes. Or. No." the voice says, raising the malice in tone.

Joe breathes out shakily, knowing it was only a dream and gave an answer "Well...sure. Just a dream anyway" Joe says confidently.

The voice chuckles rather darkly "very well...I do hope wherever you go, you don't come back alive" and with that said, Joe feels a force on his chest as if he is being pushed! Joe feels his clothes waving as if the wind is blowing very fast and felt like he is falling. Joseph turns his head around to see him, in fact, is indeed falling...from the sky.

Joe panics, moving his head around to see the pitch black room was gone, Completely. Joe turns his body around only to see he is falling into a lake, he is getting closer by the second! All the human boy could do now, brace for impact...this is going to hurt.
Joe kept falling until he splashes into the lake, the feeling was more of a smash than a splash. Joseph Brooklyn holds his breath and begins to swim to the surface, his head emerges from the waters, gasping for air and coughing. He looks around to see Joe is not in Central Park Lake but a lake he never saw before. Joe swam to the grassy shore and heaves himself out of the cold water, completely soaking wet and cold as an iceberg. "Wh-where am I!?" Joe yells aloud, hoping someone would come but no one came.

The human sits around for some time, trying hard to collect whatever thoughts is necessary, hoping this is all a bad nightmare. He walks up to a hill and sees something that makes his heart skip a beat. Joe isn't in New York City anymore! He nearly passes out from utter shock, but he manages to hold himself together. Again, Joseph tries to think deep down this is just a nightmare and he would wake up. He tries pinching himself but he didn't wake up, he even slaps himself and all he got out of that is a red cheek. Not a very pleasant feeling.
Joe decides to investigate the area and see if there were anybody that can help him. He sees a dirt road leading to a town he never saw before, he speed-walks to the town. While on his way to the town, Joe sees a red barn with a purple roof. Figuring it could save him the time and energy, he went to the barn to see if the owner is there. Joe looks around the barn and sees hundreds or even thousands of apple trees, the boy never saw anything like this in his life! The owner must have made a fortune with this amount of apples.
He walks up to the open doors and speaks gently "Hello? Is anyone in here?" no reply, Joe sighs and decides to go to the city, until suddenly he hears a gasp from behind!

Joe slowly turns his head around to see if it was the owner, Joe's eyes went wide in surprise and shock. It's a pony, female looking, the coat colour is a brilliant amber yellow, her mane is a very light amber yellow and her eyes are green 'she is wearing...a cowboy's hat?!' Joe thought.

He slowly backs away from the pony in fear. The pony steps back slowly as well, blinking at Joe as if the pony didn't know what he was. He had seen enough! Joe lets out a high pitched yelp and runs to the town as fast as he can.
'What was that? What was that!? What was that thing!?' Joe shouts in his head while still running to the town 'I've never, ever! Seen a pony like that! I need help, I got to find someone before I go insane!'

He found himself getting closer and closer to the town, Joe ran to what he thought was a town square but he stops dead in his tracks. He felt like his heart stopped beating, his chest feeling cold and breathless, sweat constantly dripping from his face. There are even more ponies, different sizes, and colours! Some with horns, wings, various hairstyles and fashion. The whole square stares at Joseph, confused at first, others filled with fear. Joe looks around the square, it was nothing like he ever saw in his life. He heard whispers of caution and fear, Joe put his hands on his head trying to contain the whole situation but it's just too much. He passes out and collapses on the ground, the ponies rushes over to him and looks over this mysterious and strange looking creature.
"What is he!? Has he come to harm us!?" a pony shouts out.

A pony pushed through the crowd of ponies, a lavender coated pony with a horn gasps at the unknown creature on the ground "Oh my gosh! I must-"

Joe was sleeping like a rock until a noise from outside woke him up. He stirs awake and rubs his eyes, seeing a white ceiling when looking straight up. Joe observes his surroundings 'I must be at a hospital? What happened to me?'

Joe slowly sits himself up while putting a hand on his face, then it hit him 'oh no...the ponies! Wait, I'm in a hospital room...ha...hahaha! It was just a nightmare! But what AM I doing in a hospital if I was dreaming?'

Suddenly the door opens, Joe glances over at the door and hoping this was all just a bad nightmare. A white pony with pink hair and light blue eyes walks in slowly, the pony is wearing a nurses hat. Joe sees a red cross on her side when she went up to Joe and stares at him, speaking in slight hesitation "How are you feeling?"

Joe gasps loudly, his face turns pale "Y-Y-you ca-can -t-talk?!" he yells.

The pony tilts her head sideways, showing a confused face "Why of course I can talk, everypony can talk around here. You're not from here, are you? What are you? Where did you come from?" she asks gently.

Joe relaxes and calms down for a moment 'maybe she could help me? She doesn't look like she would harm me' Joe thought but thinking he must keep his guard up.

"I'm a hu-" Joe is cut off by a knock on the door, the nurse walked over to the door and opened it.

"Twilight! Perfect timing, he just woke up but he needs his rest so please don't be too long," the nurse said to someone. She walks out of the room but not without saying a few words to Joe "I'll be right back, please don't leave your room. My orders."

Joe nods nervously "o-okay"

The human sees a purple pony with a horn on the forehead, a unicorn perhaps? But she has a unique hairstyle that humans could have. Her mane is dark blue, purple stripes and a pink strip, she has violet coloured eyes. A creature was riding on her back, to Joe, it looked like...a dragon! A little dragon with purple scales and green spikes on the spine with green emerald eyes. The unicorn walks over to the side of Joe's bed and examines him a little.
"Hello, My Name is Twilight Sparkle and this is my friend Spike. We saw you collapsed on the ground, I rushed over to see that you were out cold."

Joe looks down and fiddles with his fingers "W-where am I?" he asks nervously.

Twilight Sparkles gives a reassuring smile and speaks softly "You're in Equestria, a land of magic with Ponies and Dragons. Co-Ruled by Princess Celestia and Princess Luna, right now you're in Ponyville. Where Spike and I live."

Joe put his hands on his head, taking in what he thought was a nightmare...turns out it is worse than he thought. It's a reality "Am...Am I really in this world? Is it a nightmare?" he asks Twilight.

Twilight lowers her head and shook it sideways "I'm so sorry, but I don't know how or why" she says sadly, wishing she could offer more help.

Joseph Brooklyn looks out of the window thinking about what will happen to him and what should he do. He sees Twilight looking at the clock and gasped "I'm sorry but Spike and I have to go back home, but I'll come back to see you tomorrow with my friends. Bye!"

"See ya later dude!" The little dragon said before they left Joe.

The human chuckled a bit at Spike, the accent reminds him of the kids in New York City trying to be cool...which is serving as a piece of memory. He slowly lowers his head on the pillow 'What the heck is going on?' he thinks as his eyes felt heavy and he drifts off to sleep.
