Doctor Whooves: Where are we Going?
Chapter 4: Stowaways.
Ten minutes before the welcoming party.
"Just one final check to make sure the TARDIS is secure enough for me to go to this party." said the Doctor. He opened the door and walked into the what you would call the bridge, which also happens to be the first ares you see when you walk in. He walked up to the console that controls the TARDIS and pushed a few buttons, turned a few knobs, flipped a few switches, and dingled a few dongles. After he finished playing with the console he heard a beeping come from the screen that hangs down swinging from the center.
The screen read: "Cannot activate sleep mode, two life forms detected in cargo bay three. Life forms are both pony but were before Time Lord and Human."
"Oh dear, I seem to have picked up a few interesting stowaways, though I already know who one of you is, I only need to find out who human is." the Doctor said to the TARDIS. He then trotted off into the twists and turns that are the TARDIS' hallways until he found a door with symbols in his native Gallafrean tongue. The sign looks like an odd series of circles within circles with lines and dots perforating it all over. The door is unreadable by anyone who is not a Time Lord, but most think they should be able to read it since the TARDIS translates all other languages for you in both verbal and written form. To the Doctor the sign read "Cargo Bay 3." He promptly approached the door and it opened for him automatically, revealing two new ponies, both ones he did not recognize. The TARDIS would have turned all life forms aboard into ponies, so no matter what he saw, even a Dalek, would have been no threat to him, since they would be just as new to their bodies as he was.
The pony on the left was a brown pegasus, his coat was about two shades darker than the Doctor's own coat, making him seem a seemingly light milk chocolate color. His eyes were an emerald green, that seemed to sooth you as you looked into them. His mane was a ruffled up mess and a brown very similar to the bark of an oak tree. One more notable fact about him, he curiously had no cutie mark.
The pony on the right was not a pony, but a zebra, with instead of a whit and black coat as you would expect, she had a peach and blue coat. Her mane was a frizzy lain down mass of beige colored hair. Her eyes were a light blue that if you stared into them, you saw nothing but the blue sky of Equestria. She had a cutie mark was a stain of blood red lipstick, and as soon as the Doctor saw it he knew exactly who it was. The odd zebra pony was the first to speak, she said in a voice that had authority, but soothed you as she spoke, "Hello sweetey."
"River! How in all of time and space did you get here?! I thought I only had three passengers, not five!" The Doctor was furious with her, not only did she break his rule about breaking into the TARDIS, but she broke the very laws of physics by going to Equestria with him.
"If you'll let me explain, I came aboard because I was having some trouble with the Cybermen, and I rescued this poor sod doing it. I came to the first and safest place I could think of, and I thought of your TARDIS first." River explained calmly.
"Well, who is this 'poor sod' anyways?" The Doctor asked pointing a hoof at the brown pegasus.
"I...I'm Apollo." He said, still gaping at the fact that he was a pegasus.
"Apollo? River where and when did you pick him up?" The Doctor asked curiously.
"I found him in the 2012 on Earth, somewhere in Australia specifically. He was walking home from a day of school when a Cyberman popped out of nowhere and tried to 'upgrade' him. The Cyberman was alone thankfully, all it had was itself and an 'upgrade' unit. As for what it wanted I think it was just stranded from an escape pod as one of their ships blew up nearby. I rescued Apollo just before he was put onto the table." River explained quickly.
"I see. Well what is your full name Apollo?"The Doctor asked, "If that is even your real name. Seems kind of lucky for an earthling to be named Apollo and become a pony."
"My name is Cole, Cole Michaels. Apollo is just the name I chose as my pony name. Apollo Helsing is my name now, since I'm a pegasus." Apollo said.
"Well, now that that's cleared up. I have a party to attend. Come along if you like." The Doctor said and then he began leaving the TARDIS.
"OOH a party, sounds like fun, I think I will attend." River said, and she followed after him but tripped over her own two hooves as she tried to walk. "Oops, forgot I'm a pony now." She said and then corrected the way she was walking and followed the Doctor out.
"Hey don't leave me behind!" Apollo yelled before he himself tripped and then quickly learned how to walk again and ran after them.
Author's note: I'm sorry for not posting for a long time, I have been busy but more I have been forgetting to do it. So here's chapter four. I will get to work on the next chapter as soon as I can, but that won't be until after exams.
