Doctor Whooves: Episode 6

A Ponyville Invasion

Prologue

Home of Twilight Sparkle, Ponyville, Equestria, Gaia, Autumn, 1002 C.E.

Twilight sighed as the TARDIS came to another bumpy stop. This was it. She was home. She knew it.

"There we go!" exclaimed the Doctor. "Outside those doors lies Ponyville, 1002 C.E."

"Home," said Twilight with a smile. The Doctor smiled too as he walked towards the doors. He opened them and beckoned Twilight outside. She slowly approached the doors and walked through them.

The familiar scent of books reached her nose as she stepped out of the TARDIS. There it was. Her library. Her home. Nothing had changed. A huge smile appeared on her face as she began running alongside the outline of the library, carefully examining each book.

"Everything's in place! Nothing's changed at all! How...how long were we gone?" she asked.

"About five minutes," the Doctor replied.

"Five minutes? All that happened in a mere five minutes?"

"That's one of the perks of having a time machine."

"Spike and the others must be worrying about me. I better go let them know that I'm okay!"

"You go and see your friends. I think I'll go take a quick walk around town."

"Okay!"

Twilight ran up to the Doctor and hugged him tightly.

"Thank you for bringing me home!" she said. The Doctor hugged her back and nodded his head.

"I promised I would, didn't I?" he replied. Twilight gave the Doctor and quick kiss on the cheek before running through the front door. The Doctor smiled and followed suit. He looked and watched as Twilight disappeared around a bend. As he closed the door behind him, he noticed something taped to the exterior of the door. It was a piece of paper with a picture of Twilight printed on it. As he examined the paper, his eyes grew incredibly wide. "Oh no! Not again!"

Outside Town Hall, Ponyville, Equestria, Gaia, Autumn, 1002 C.E.

It didn't take long for Twilight to realize that something was wrong. The air was colder than it should have been and nopony was out and about. Twilight soon began to notice brown leaves scattered on the ground. Something was wrong. Something was horribly wrong. She could hear talking emanating from within Town Hall.

"I guess a town meeting is going on," she said out loud. "Wait a minute. How could the entire town crowd into Town Hall in under five minutes? That's quite impossible. Unless-"

The talking stopped and the doors leading into Town Hall flung open. Ponies began filing out through the doors. They, however, all came to a halt when they saw Twilight. Their eyes grew large and their jaws dropped.

"Uh...hey, everypony. Did I miss the town meeting? I'm sorry. Don't worry though! The creature has been taken care of!" Twilight announced awkwardly, assuming that the meeting had something to do with the Dalek attack. Suddenly, a familiar purple and green dragon emerged from the crowd.

"Twilight?" asked Spike. He looked as shocked as the other ponies.

"Yes, Spike? Is there a problem?"

Tears formed in Spike's eyes as he lunged towards her and wrapped her in a giant hug. Five familiar mares broke free from the crowd and also hugged Twilight.

"You're back!" cried Pinkie Pie.

"Where in tarnation have you been?" Applejack asked.

"We have simply been dying with worry about where you could have possibly gone!" cried Rarity.

"What the hay happened to you?" Rainbow Dash snapped.

"We were so worried!" exclaimed Fluttershy. Twilight broke free from their grasp and slowly backed up.

"What's going on?" she asked. "According to the Doctor, I've only been gone five minutes."

The five mares and Spike looked at each other nervously and then turned back to Twilight. They looked just as confused, if not more confused, than she did. Applejack took a step forward.

"Twilight...ah don't know how to say this, but you haven't been gone five minutes. You've been missing for five months!" she exclaimed.
