Chapter 10: Twilight's Choice

Nymphadora, 1678 C.E.

Twilight yelped as she opened her eyes to find herself caught within the tight grasp of President Tyrion Targaryen, who was currently holding a knife uncomfortably close to her neck. "Just play your part and everything will be just..." stammered President Targaryen. "Wait a moment...how...what...who...did all that...did all that really just happen?!"

Twilight was completely shell-shocked. A second ago, she had been hugging the Doctor and Derpy tightly within Dusk's throne room while a white vortex was engulfing them. Now she was back to wearing the clothes she had been wearing at Shining Armor and Cadance's wedding right before being picked up by the Doctor and was being held at knifepoint by President Targaryen, who she clearly remembered seeing get decapitated.

She looked around to see that she was back outside the Tomb of the Twilight King. Everything was exactly as she had remembered it when she had last been there: when Dusk had returned. The large, dark purple door with Dusk's angry eyes embedded in the center. The tall fountains on both sides of the massive, underground room spewing out violet and light blue water. The small ponds beneath the fountains filled with the heads of large, white and yellow alpenglow lilies with their yellow hazes and sugary aromas.

Derpy was standing a few feet away from her, looking about as confused as she herself currently was. Towards the entrance of the room, the Doctor, Marcus, and the no longer ghostly Colonel Ash were having a standoff with a group of Nymphadorian guards.

"We...we're alive?!" one of the guards asked aloud as he turned towards his fellow guards. "We're alive!"

At that instant, every guard in the room turned their attention towards President Targaryen, who had his claw bearing the orange ring raised up and the Staff of the Dawn clutched tightly in that same claw. "Stop him!" shouted another one of the guards. In a flash, every guard rushed towards the President, who proceeded to let Twilight go and attempt to run away. A particularly large guard jumped through the air and tackled the President, knocking him unconscious as a result.

Twilight was still in shock as Derpy flew over to her and wrapped her up in caring hug. "Twilight!" she cried. "We're alive! We made it!" As Twilight looked at Derpy, she noticed that the gray pegasus was back to wearing her fancy clothing as well.

"What...what just happened?!" Twilight managed to ask. "Weren't we just...how did...what?!" She turned to see the Doctor trotting towards them. She could also see Marcus and Ash sharing a big, joyful bear hug.

"Ha ha!" the Doctor laughed as he grabbed Twilight and Derpy in a tight hug. "You both were absolutely brilliant!"

"Doctor...I don't understand," said Derpy. "What just happened here?!"

The Doctor broke the hug and took a step back, clearing his throat as he went. "It appears the Dawn was true to his word."

"How so?" Twilight asked.

"Don't tell me you've forgotten already, Ms. Sparkle! It was only a few seconds ago...well, technically, it never happened anyway."

"What?" asked Twilight and Derpy simultaneously with equally confused, deadpan expressions.

The Doctor rolled his eyes and smiled warmly. "The Dawn said, 'It's time to fix what you've broken,' to Dusk. From what I can tell, he's done just that."

Twilight looked around the room and examined every detail carefully. As she did so, the realization of what had happened slowly came to her. "He reversed everything. He sent us back in time." Twilight stated.

The Doctor nodded. "Not only us, of course. Everyone on Nymphadora, Auran, and Ruleo too. A complete reset. Everything and everyone is back to where they were at the exact moment before President Targaryen used you to free Dusk."

"A complete reset?" Derpy asked as she glanced in the direction of Marcus and Ash. "So that means...everypony who died...the twilight...everything this past month..."

"It never happened," the Doctor finished.

A wide smile appeared on Derpy's face and tears of joy appeared in her eyes. "That means...the crash! Sylvia's friends! Klaus's sister! They're alive again! Everything's okay!" Derpy gave the Doctor a quick, joyous hug before backing up and wiping her eyes.

"The month that never was," Twilight added.

The Doctor chuckled. "Exactly. Heh. Never thought I'd go through something like this twice."

"Twice? What happened the last time?" Derpy asked.

"Oh, you don't want to hear about that! It's a boring story. Old enemy of mine returning, reuniting with an old friend, parting with a new friend, world domination, year completely reversed, nothing noteworthy. Your average Wednesday."

Twilight let out a frustrated groan. "You are impossible, Doctor!" she stated.

"Impossibly charming, right?" The Doctor winked at Twilight.

"And egotistical too!"

The Doctor snickered. "You think that's bad, you should have seen me a few faces back. God, I can still remember how I thought that rainbow outfit was a good look." The Doctor shook like he had just seen a terrifying sight, leaving Twilight and Derpy with even more questions than answers.

However, Twilight couldn't help but let a giggle escape her lips. "You know, honestly, I missed you two," she said as she smiled at the Doctor and Derpy. "I didn't spend that much time with either of you leading up to the month that now never happened. But I remember, when I was alone here in the City Centre for a whole month with no other company aside from Dusk, I would look up towards the sky and think about you two. Well, you and everypony else I care about. Whenever I would start losing hope or begin to feel weak, I would just think about those moments I shared with you two and I would get better."

"We thought about you too," said Derpy. "Being stuck here with Dusk for all that time must have been horrible!"

"It wasn't as bad as you probably think," Twilight explained. "In all honesty, I kinda had the Twilight King on a leash for a little bit with me fighting back against his spreading twilight."

"I'd expect nothing less from the Element of...Wizardry?" the Doctor complimented awkwardly.

Twilight and Derpy rolled their eyes. "Magic," they both replied.

"Same thing."

"Anyway, I'm glad you were okay for the most part, Twilight," Derpy continued. "I was pretty worried. Though, to be honest, I think the Doctor was a bit more worried than me."

"Well of course I was worried!" the Doctor said with a pout. "A little unicorn like you trapped with a thing like Dusk? Anyone would worry!"

Twilight reached forward and drew the Doctor in for another hug. "Thank you, Doctor. You and Derpy didn't disappoint," she said.

Twilight felt the Doctor pat her on the back. "I'm glad we didn't."

"Hey, Doctor!" called Ash as he and Marcus rushed towards them.

"Colonel Ash," said the Doctor with a respectful nod. "Nice to see you back in the flesh."

"It feels good to be back." Ash continued to examine his body. "I still can't believe that I actually died and became a ghost. I'm definitely happy about being a living Nymphadorian again...though I will miss being able to pass through walls. That was pretty cool."

"Cheery Ash is back. Time to celebrate!" Marcus laughed with a slap to Ash's back. "So, it appears that time's reversed."

"But only those on Nymphadora and its moons will be aware of it," the Doctor explained. "And, with those memories, I'm sure some drastic changes are currently underway."

"Maybe the end of the war?" Derpy suggested.

"I would hope so," Ash said. "If what happened during that month wasn't enough to convince people to end the war, I don't know what is."

"Well, in any case, it looks like things are going to start off with our President getting a nice, friendly impeachment," said Marcus with a smirk.

Twilight turned and watched as the guards carried the unconscious President Targaryen away from the tomb. "Good riddance," she said.

"So...what now?" Derpy asked.

"Now, Ms. Hooves, we should leave this tomb far behind us and head upstairs to get some info about what's to happen next," said the Doctor. He then turned towards Marcus and Ash. "And then, if you two would be kind enough, us three ponies need a quick lift to the other side of the planet. There's a certain blue box waiting for us."


The Doctor, Derpy, and Twilight looked out the window of the moderately-sized aircraft as the city of Lupae disappeared into the distance. For the first time in quite a while, the Doctor was feeling satisfied and content. He had been right. Changes were indeed already happening within the Nymphadorian capital. From what they had heard, the Nymphadorian leaders were already scheduling meetings with the Auranian and Ruleonite leaders to meet up, sign a treaty, and officially end the Trinity War. Things were going to be bumpy at first, without a doubt. No one comes out of a decade of war without a few leftover grudges, regrets, and consequences to deal with. But the Doctor could definitely see that a change for the better with quickly coming for Nymphadora and its moons.

The Doctor turned towards the front of the aircraft. Ash was busy preparing the ship for a speed jump in order to shorten the length of the trip and Marcus was occupied with finding a way to make contact with Sylvia, who was most likely back on Auran now.

His eyes then drifted over to Twilight, who appeared to have a look of sadness in her eyes. "Twilight?" he asked. The lavender unicorn faced him. "You look like you have something on your mind. Anything you want to talk about?"

Twilight sighed. "I visited the City Centre School before we left," she replied.

"May I ask why?"

"I made a friend recently while I was still trapped in the twilight. Her name was Thea."

"Thea. The little, ghostly, Nymphadorian girl, right?"

"That's right. She...she's been dead for a long time. She died decades before Dusk returned."

"I see. Like with Ash, the twilight must have brought her back as well."

"But now it's all been reversed...and she's gone."

The Doctor stepped closer to Twilight and wrapped a foreleg around her. "She's where she belongs now. She and the others didn't belong in this world anymore."

"I know." The Doctor noticed a single tear streak down Twilight's face. "It's just...she was such an innocent girl. And she didn't deserve the death she got."

The Doctor sighed. He wanted to be very careful with his words, discussing a situation such as this. "Life's cruelest joke."

"What do you mean?"

"I've seen many things, Twilight Sparkle. Many great things. Many wondrous and fantastic things. But also many horrible things. Many terrible, wretched, disgusting things." The Doctor was quiet for a few seconds. "Sometimes, bad things happen to good people, ponies, whathaveyou; and, sometimes, there's no reason for it. These things happen and, while difficult to comprehend, we must press on. Because, believe it or not, there are happy endings." The Doctor drew Twilight in closer. "The way I see it, Twilight Sparkle, life can be seen as a jumbled mess of good things and bad things. And while the good things don't necessarily soften the bad things; in turn, the bad things don't ruin the good things or make them any less important." The Doctor turned to Twilight and had her face him. "Thea may not have gotten the chance to live as long as she could have and she most likely did not deserve the death she got; but I'm sure that she had plenty of good things in her life as well to look back on and be happy about. And, during her brief period back in the world of the living, I'm sure you most certainly added to her mess of good things, Twilight Sparkle."

Twilight smiled at the Doctor and wiped her eyes. "Thank you, Doctor."

The Doctor patted Twilight on the shoulder and decided to leave her alone with her thoughts for now. He trudged towards the front of the aircraft where Derpy, Marcus, and Ash were.

"I think I'm getting something!" Marcus exclaimed as worked with the controls underneath a digital screen on the windshield. Suddenly, an image appeared showing both Sylvia the Auranian and Klaus the Ruleonite. "Yes!"

"Looks like we succeeded," said Sylvia with a smile.

"You're damn right we succeeded!" Marcus pointed at the screen. "And once we've dropped the Doctor, Derpy, and Twilight off, Ash and I are headed straight for ya!"

"Looking forward to it." Sylvia proceeded to teasingly wink.

"So what about you, Klaus? You seem quiet right now," said the Doctor.

"Sorry. I'm still in shock over what just happened," Klaus replied. "I mean...I have my sister back and yet I can still remember-"

"Don't think about what no longer happened, okay?"

"Okay...wait, what?"

"You have your sister back, Klaus. She's alive and well and that's all that matters."

"You're right. Thank you, Doctor. To think none of this would have happened if I had ended up stopping you from breaking apart that floor underneath us."

"When in doubt, go for the crazy. That's my motto." The Doctor shook his head before freezing for a second. "Wait...no...that's not my motto."

"Then what is your motto?" Sylvia asked.

"None of your business!" the Doctor snapped teasingly.

"Almost ready to make a speed jump," Ash informed.

"Well, Doctor, looks like this is goodbye," said Sylvia. "It truly was an honor working with you."

"What about me?!" Derpy asked as she leaned in front of the Doctor.

"You too, Derpy. I gotta say, you're a mare of surprises."

Derpy gave a smile of pride. "Thank you!"

"How's that friend of yours? The unicorn?"

The Doctor glanced back at Twilight, who was still looking out the back window. "She's getting there," the Doctor replied.

"That's good," said Sylvia.

"Okay. We're ready to go!" said Ash.

"Farewell, Sylvia. Klaus," the Doctor stated with a nod.

"Goodbye, Doctor," said Sylvia.

"And thank you again," Klaus added.

With a click of a button, the transmission ended. "Okay," said Ash with a clearing of his throat. "Everybody and everypony ready?"

"Ready," said the Doctor, Derpy, and Twilight simultaneously.

"Let's do this!" cheered Marcus.

"Alright then," Ash chuckled as he grabbed a nearby lever. "Brace yourselves." Ash brought the lever forward. Everything became still for a few seconds before the aircraft suddenly shot forward like a bullet going beyond the speed of light.

The world outside the aircraft became nothing but a blurred mess while the inside was filled with rough vibrations. The three ponies and the two Nymphadorians held on tightly as the ship soared through the air towards their destination.

Throughout this trip, the Doctor felt as if he were back in Dusk's twilight realm. He was unsure about how much time had progressed. A few minutes? An hour? Several hours? He wasn't sure by the end of things. His body has simply fallen in tune with the vibrations and he had allowed himself to fall into a comfortable stupor throughout the duration of the speed jump.

Eventually, the jump came to an end and Ash brought the aircraft down for a soft landing.

Once the ship had come to a complete and steady stop, the five passengers exited from the interior and walked out to face the familiar landscape of purple dirt and blue grass. The Doctor could even see a few of the foal-sized ladybugs flying around.

The Doctor's attention was quickly drawn towards the familiar members of the Midna Wolfsbane's tribe, who had wasted no time in approaching the group of visitors. Derpy, Twilight, and Marcus appeared to be extremely cautious and on high alert. The Doctor didn't blame them. Their previous encounters with the Nymphadorian tribe of Midna Wolfsbane hadn't exactly been entirely peachy.

It didn't take long for Midna herself to make her entrance. "Doctor," she said with a nod and small smile that the Doctor assumed was her way of showing newfound respect.

"Midna Wolfsbane," the Doctor said in return before giving a similar nod of respect.

"I am not sure of what transpired on your end of things, but you've somehow managed to fix everything by reversing time itself."

"Oh I can't take all of the credit." The Doctor grabbed Derpy and Twilight and pulled them in close. "I had help along the way. Even from an...unexpected source."

"And what source would that be, if you don't mind me asking?"

"Dawn."

Midna was silent for a brief moment. Eventually, she gave another nod. "I see."

The Doctor glanced in the direction of his hidden TARDIS. "I'm sure you remember the deal you and I made following our last encounter."

"That I do. You've managed to not only bring down the Twilight King and cause the twilight to retreat, but, from what I've heard from my various sources, you've also managed to help bring an end to the war."

"I said I would bring it to an end, didn't I?"

Midna nodded again. "That you did. Thank you, Doctor. We will make sure that Nymphadora never forgets the Doctor and his companions."

"Oh, you don't have to go and do all that. I'm fine being left in the shadows of history."

"Interesting. A stallion of great successes who wishes for no rewards in return."

"That's just the kind of stallion I am."

Midna gave one more nod and waved her hand before retreating back into her camp. Her followers proceeded to begin dumping the paralysis cure throughout the area surrounding the invisible TARDIS. "What? Does nopony say goodbye anymore?" Twilight asked with an eye roll.

Once the area had been completely cleared on all paralyzing toxins, the Doctor pulled out his sonic screwdriver and used it to bring the TARDIS back into sync. He, Derpy, and Twilight then turned to face Marcus and Ash.

"So this is it, huh?" Marcus asked.

"For now, anyway," the Doctor replied.

Marcus extended a paw forward and the Doctor shook it. "It's been...interesting."

"Likewise."

Derpy and Twilight stepped forward and each gave Marcus and Ash a quick hug.

"Thank you both. For everything," said Derpy.

"And thank you too," said Ash.

Derpy smiled in Marcus's direction and nodded. "I'm glad you and Sylvia can finally be together," she commented.

"Me too. Now that all this madness is over with," said Marcus.

"And, I'm going to see to it that your name is cleared of that whole dishonored business," Ash informed. "I think everyone else will agree, given what they saw on the broadcast that never happened."

Marcus scratched his head. "Yeah...that whole concept still confuses me."

Ash chuckled. "Hopefully, this'll make up for me failing to help you get to her all those years ago."

"Ash, that's in the past now. You tried to help me back then and I thank you for it, even though I failed in the end. But you managed to help me again, this time from beyond death itself, and we all won. I think that more than makes up for our first failure."

"Yeah. You're right." Ash and Marcus then shared a firm handshake.

Derpy turned in the direction of the TARDIS. "Time to go, I suppose," she said.

"Yep," the Doctor confirmed.

"You better take those ponies with you, Doctor," Marcus suggested. "I bet you wouldn't be able to get anything done without somebody or somepony alongside you."

The Doctor was silent for a few seconds. "You're right." He gave a fleeting smirk in Marcus and Ash's direction. "Take care, Marcus. Ash."

"You too," Ash said with a wave. "Have a safe trip."

"Farewell!" said Twilight.

"Goodbye!" called Derpy.

The Doctor smiled as he approached the TARDIS and placed his hooves against its wooden exterior. He turned around and took one, final glance at the Nymphadorian terrain and the two Nymphadorian soldiers making their way back to their aircraft. "Farewell, Nymphadora," he said under his breath. He waited until Derpy and Twilight were beside him before unlocking the TARDIS doors and stepping inside.

Gaia, 1002 C.E.

Twilight's legs shook as she stepped out of the TARDIS and felt her hooves touch the cobbled streets of Canterlot once again. She looked around. Everything was just as she had remembered it. The wedding party of Shining Armor and Cadance was still in full swing. She could even still see their carriage riding off into the distance. "I'm...home," she managed to utter.

"That you are," the Doctor stated with a chuckle. "I can definitely relate. I've certainly missed my TARDIS. It felt so good to be flying her again."

Twilight couldn't help but laugh as she turned around to face the Doctor and Derpy. Her smile slowly morphed into a serious expression of respect. "So...it's finally time for us to part ways."

"At least we both know each other now," said Derpy with a smile. "We can meet up somewhere in Ponyville sometime and...hang out or something."

Twilight gave a quick nod as a small smile appeared on her face. "I'd like that, Derpy. I'd like that very much."

"You know, Ms. Sparkle, this doesn't have to be goodbye," said the Doctor.

Both Twilight and Derpy focused on the Doctor. "What's that supposed to mean?" Twilight asked.

"Come on now. You're a bright mare. I'm sure you understand what I'm saying." Twilight fell silent. She understood what he was asking. The Doctor rolled his eyes. "Okay. To put it simply, why don't you come with us? There's a whole wide universe out there. Billions upon billions of other worlds and periods in time to explore and learn about. I have a feeling, Ms. Sparkle, that you'd be very interesting in seeing what the universe has to offer."

Twilight slowly nodded. "You're right. It is a wide universe out there just ripe for exploration. So full of information and questions waiting to be answered. Places, creatures, and adventures that no scholars or creative minds in Equestria could ever dream of."

The Doctor chuckled and extended a hoof towards Twilight. "So what do you say, huh? Ready to join Derpy and I in the TARDIS? All of space and time, just waiting to be explored by Twilight Sparkle: the Element of Magic!"

Twilight giggled. "Do you have to make it sound so dramatic?"

"What's wrong with being dramatic?"

"Nothing." Twilight giggled again. "In all honesty, I would love to travel with you two."

"Excellent!"

"But...my answer is no."

"What?!" the Doctor and Derpy asked simultaneously.

Twilight shuffled her hooves awkwardly. "I thank you very much for the offer, Doctor; and, as I said, I would love to explore this entire universe and all of its history. But...I can't."

"Why not?" the Doctor asked.

"It's just too much for me right now. So much to take in." Twilight sighed. "I was trapped in that twilight realm for a month. For a while, my future was uncertain and I was unsure about if I'd ever even see my family, friends, and home ever again. I missed them terribly. But now I'm back and...I'm just not ready to up and go on another other-worldly adventure."

"Are you sure?" Derpy asked.

"Yes," Twilight responded. "One day, in the future, I may wish to travel with you again, Doctor. But, right now, I'm fine just exploring the mysteries of Equestria at this current point in its history. My point in its history."

The Doctor was quiet. Twilight wasn't sure about what to expect from his next reaction.

"Very well, Twilight Sparkle. I understand and respect your decision," he replied.

Twilight smiled at the strange stallion. "Thank you, Doctor," she said.

The Doctor smiled back. "Go and enjoy your life. Love the everyday tasks and enjoy the company of those you care for. But, whenever you're ready, just give the stars a shout and I'll come flying over to your doorstep."

Twilight raised an eyebrow. "Really? All I have to do is shout at the sky and you'll come back?"

The Doctor pouted. "Can't you just enjoy the illusion?!"

"No. I'm a literal, straightforward mare."

"Really?! I never would have guessed!"

The three ponies proceeded to share a hearty laugh. "Until we meet again, Doctor," said Twilight.

"Until we meet again," the Doctor said back.

Derpy walked over to Twilight and gave her one, last hug. "Goodbye, Twilight," Derpy said.

"Take care, Derpy," Twilight said back as they broke apart. "And take care of him too."

"Don't worry, I will." The two mares shared a final laugh together.

"Come along then, Ms. Hooves! There's plenty more worlds waiting for us out there!" said the Doctor as he stepped back into the TARDIS.

"Coming, Doctor!" Derpy called as she followed him. She turned back to Twilight and gave a final wave before disappearing into the blue box and closing the doors behind her.

Twilight took a few steps back and watched as the TARDIS slowly disappeared into the folds of space and time, its signature sound reverberating through the air around her. VVRROOMMPP! VVRROOMMPP! VVRROOMMPP!

"Be careful, you two," Twilight said under her breath.

"Hello, Twilight," stated a familiar voice. Twilight froze upon hearing it. She turned around to find Princess Celestia standing immediately in front of her.

"Princess Celestia!"

"Are you enjoying the party? You should be. You worked really hard to make sure all of this was possible and I commend you for it, my faithful student."

A huge smile appeared on Twilight's face as she rushed forward and gave her mentor a big hug. Twilight quickly realized how informal she was acting and hastily stepped back. "Forgive me, Princess."

"For what, may I ask? There's nothing wrong with you giving me a hug, Twilight. It was actually quite a heartwarming surprise."

Twilight awkwardly kicked the ground beneath her hooves. "Sorry...it's just...I'm really glad to see you again, Princess."

Princess Celestia let out an amused giggle. "Again? We've only been apart for a few minutes, Twilight. The way you're speaking, it's as if you've been gone for weeks."

"You don't know the half of it," Twilight said under her breath.

"What was that?" Princess Celestia asked.

"Nothing, Princess. I just really want to go see my friends."

Princess Celestia nodded. "I think you've earned the right to do that. Messing around in blue boxes can be quite tiresome."

Twilight's eyes widened. "Wait...what?!"

Princess Celestia flapped her wings and took to the air. "Continue to enjoy the party, Twilight. I shall speak with you again later."

"Wait! Princess! I..." She was gone, leaving Twilight with many questions floating around her head. "Did...did she see me talking with the Doctor and Derpy? Does she know about them?" At that moment, Twilight heard a few familiar voices floating through the air. Looking up, she saw her six closest friends approaching her: Spike, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Rarity. Twilight smiled. "You know what? I can wonder about that later." Twilight could feel a few joyous tears strolling down her face as she ran in the direction of her friends.


"So where next, Derpy?" asked the Doctor as he fiddled with the TARDIS controls. Derpy was leaning against the main console, her mind deep in thought. "Uh...Derpy?"

Derpy snapped out of her trance. "What?" she asked.

"Where do you want to go next?"

"Oh...sorry, Doctor. I was just thinking."

"About what?"

"Twilight."

"You're sad she decided not to come with us?"

"A bit...but that's not what I'm mostly thinking about."

"Then what is it that you're thinking about?"

Derpy was quiet for several seconds. A small smile soon appeared on her face. "I know where I want to go next, Doctor."

"Ah! Excellent! Where to next?" Derpy slowly approached the Doctor and whispered the answer into his ear. "Really?" He was silent for a few seconds. "You're not-"

"No! It's just...Twilight got me thinking and I think it would be nice to make a quick visit before heading back out into the universe."

The Doctor shrugged his shoulders. "Hey, your wish is my command." He proceeded to adjust a few of the controls on the main console. The TARDIS shook for a few seconds before coming to a quick stop. "There we are!"

Derpy turned around and burst through the TARDIS doors. It was nighttime and the only lights were that of the stars and of the surrounding homes. Derpy raced towards the house the Doctor had parked the TARDIS in front of and hastily knocked on the door.

The door opened a minute later.

"Hello?" asked Carrot Top. "Oh! Derpy!"

Derpy flung herself forward and wrapped Carrot Top up in a big hug. "It's so great to see you again, Carrot Top!" she cried.

"It's great to see you too, Derpy! You've been gone for a few days. How have things been?"

"Interesting, to say the least."

"Well why don't you come inside and tell me all about it? I've just made dinner and I'm sure I've made enough to fill five mouths!"

"Great!"

Carrot Top looked past Derpy and smirked. "That goes for you too, Doctor."

The Doctor looked at Carrot Top and shook his head. "No thanks," he replied with a head shake. "I'm not really a group dinner kind of-"

"Oh no! Nopony refuses one of my dinner invitations! You get your rump in this house before you don't have one anymore!" snapped Carrot Top.

The Doctor quickly straightened up and ran inside the house. "Yes, ma'am!"

Derpy and Carrot Top turned to each other and shared a laugh as they entered the house. It feels good to be home again, Derpy thought as she closed the door behind her.
