  67. >Your stunning new mane and tail...
  68. >Woah! Where did that come from.
  69. >You are NOT looking forward to this.
  70. >That niggling doubt in the back of your mind doesn't go away.
  71. >What if you do want this?
  72. >What if you enjoy it?
  73. >No! Why are you thinking like this?
  74. >Is it changing your personality too?
  75. >No, you're still...

  84. >You feel your eyes drag themselves shut as you drift off into another deep slumber.
  85.  
  86. >You awake back into your home.
  87. >Time for another fun day in ponyville!
  88. >Maybe I can talk to Spits here.
  89. >If she is real...
  90. >You hop out of your bed and happily trot into your bathroom.
  91. >You complete your morning routine and waltz over to the mirror.
  92. >You give yourself a confident smile.
  93. >Yep, you still have it goin' on.
  94. >You can't help but feel like you're forgetting something.
  95. >It isn't very important if you forgot it silly!
  96. >You trot out into the town and start searching for Spitfire.
  97. >You see her zipping around the sky as usual.
  98. >You call her down and she lands gracefully, giving you a heroic pose.
  99. >You can't help but burst out laughing at her show of dramatics.
  100. >Spits once again gives you the death glare.
  101. >Of course you're too busy rolling around laughing to notice.
  102. >"Stop laughing Vinyl!"
  103. >You rise to your hooves and wipe a single tear from your left eye.
  104. "I'm sorry spits! What was that pose about?"
  105. >"Hey! As long as I'm showing off what's wrong with a cool pose?"
  106. "Cool isn't the word I'd use Spits."
  107. >She huffs part of her mane out of her eye and sighs.
  108. >You both share some stories while you trot to the centre of town.
  109. >AJ is back at the her stand again, you give her a quick wave.
  110. >There seems to be another unicorn talking to her.
  111. >AJ shakes her head and the unicorn moans in frustration before walking towards you.
  112. >The unicorn is a mint green and has a blue and white mane.
  113. >Her cutie mark is a lyre.
  114. >she approches you and Spits.
  115. >"Uh. Do you guys know where I can find some help?"
  116. "Help with what exactly?"
  117. >"I'm kinda' lost."
  118. "Well what are you looking for?"
  119. >"I don't know..."
  120. >She looks at one of her hooves as she paws the ground.
  121. >"Well I'm Spitefire and this is my best buddy Vinyl."
  122. >"Oh! Well my name is umm..."
  123. >Her eyes search around for a while before settling on her cutie mark.
  124. >"Lyra! My name is Lyra."
  125. >She gives you a small nervous smile.
  126. >Oh right! Transforming into ponies and stuff.
  127. >Idiot.
  128. "Hey Lyra wanna come hang out at my place! We can talk about your problem there."
  129. >"Yeah! I haven't seen your new house yet Vinyl."
  130. >"Yeah, uh sure!"
  131. >All three of you walk to your home and sit down in the living room.
  132. >You scan around your house for any sneaky ponies listening in.
  133. >You close the door and turn to your new friend.
  134. "So uh. human right?"
  135. >she looks shocked for a second before glancing between you and Spits.
  136. >"Yeah! I collapsed at home and I woke up here!"
  137. >You nod as she tells you her story.
  138. >Turns out she spent most of her time wandering about ponyville.
  139. >You and spits return the favour, she seems intrigued by your experiences.
  140. >Turns out Spits lives in a fucking cloud mansion.
  141. >Radical.
  142. >You are slightly jealous.
  143. >"So, what are your real names?"
  144. >You and Spits spend the next several moments deep in thought.
  145. "I'm pretty sure it's Vinyl."
  146. >"Yeah... mine is Spitfire."
  147. "I mean, what other names would we have?"
  148.  
  149. >Doubt begins to fester in your mind.
  150. >What is Lyra talking about?
  151. >What else could your name be?
  152. >You're fairly certain this is a dream, you live on Earth and go to school with your best friend Spitfire!
  153. >Your name is Vinyl, and you love music! In fact you make some in your spare time.
  154. "I remember living on Earth... this place is strange and dreamlike."
  155. >You stroke your chin with a hoof.
  156. "But I'm fairly certain I've always been a pony."
  157. >Spits nods in agreement.
  158. >Lyra seems completely flabbergasted.
  159. >"B-but you recognised me as a human!"
  160. >"Of course we did! We do live on Earth after all."
  161. >"But ponies don't exist on Earth!"
  162. "Of course they do!"
  163. >You feel a mild headache coming on.
  164. >You rub your forehead with a hoof and try to explain.
  165. >Lyra isnt having any of it.
  166. >As you argue with her, the world slowly begins to deconstruct around you.
  167. >The walls crumble, the floor disipates.
  168. >All three of you are terrified.
  169. >The green fields, towering mountains and surrounding buildings all burn away leaving a pure white space.
  170. >Eventually there is nothing but white.
  171. >An endless void, with the three of you stood in the centre.
  172. >In the distance, you can see another few ponies looking around in confusion.
  173. >You attempt to speak but your voice flutters away and fades.
  174. >The other ponies seem to have noticed your congregation and are now approaching you.
  175. >A huge range of colour is on display.
  176. >The mares heavily outweigh the few stallions present.
  177. >It's clear all of them are attempting to speak but seem to be meeting the same resistance you did.
  178. >You suddenly feel very tired.
  179. >You eyes droop as you attempt to combat your sudden drowsiness.
  180. >But sleeping sounds so nice right now...
  181. >You'll worry about it later...
  182. >For now you sleep...
  183. >Vinyl...
  184.  
  185. >That familiar beeping fills your sensitive ears.
  186. >They flick and twitch at the new sensation.
  187. >You wish you could sleep some more, you feel so tired.
  188. >Maybe you're just hungry.
  189. >You peel open your eyes.
  190. >Still in the hospital it seems.
  191. >The doctor and your mother are stood over you.
  192. >Why do you suddenly feel so small?
  193. >You wipe the sleep away from your large eyes with a hoof.
  194. >They seem to be talking with each other.
  195. >It's kind of hard to make out though.
  196. >Your mother looks very worried.
  197. >Maybe you should say something?
  198. >Control slowly returns to your equine body.
  199. >Wait... This doesn't feel right.
  200. >Like this is a new sensation.
  201. >You might even say it feels strange?
  202. >Why should it? You have always been a pony right?
  203. >Your hazy vision slowly realigns itself.
  204. >You can clearly see how panicked both of them are.
  205. >You look down.
  206. >Yep, you are clearly a pony.
  207. >You flick your tail a few times, stretch your limbs and lick your teeth.
  208. >Ugh. Tastes like you've been out for quite a while.
  209. >You cough furiously, your throat is like a desert right now.
  210. >They're both still staring at you, unmoving.
  211. "Hello?"
  212. >Your voice is just like in those dreams.
  213. >Of course it is silly! Why wouldn't it be?
  214. >They both gasp in tandem and begin whispering to each other.
  215. "Mom?"
  216. >She breaks away quickly and looks at you, slack jawed?
  217. >"V-vincent?"
  218. >What? Your name wasn't vincent.
  219. "Did you forget my name Mom? It's Vinyl."
  220. >She raises an eyebrow.
  221. >"Y-you don't remember?"
  222. "Remember what?"
  223. >She looks to be on the verge of tears.
  224. >"E-everything!"
  225. >You want to hug her really bad.
  226. >But the bed sheets are holding you down.
  227. >You simply give her a smile instead.
  228. >Through her bloodshot eyes you see a glimmer of hope.
  229. "Are... the others okay?"
  230. >The doctor sighs.
  231. >"Most of them changed too... we still don't know why."
  232. >"But, you aren't infectious! So, as long as you feel fine you can talk about getting you home."
  233. >Home! You feel much better at the simple mention of it.
  234. >"I have to go check on the other patients. Call me if you need anything."
  235. >He leaves the room, mom sits on the chair next to your bed.
  236. >"S-so. How do you feel?"
  237. "Uh. Normal I guess."
  238. >"So you don't remember..."
  239. "Remember what?"
  240. >"Being human."
  241. "No. I-I was always a pony right?"
  242. >You look over to her and she averts your gaze.
  243. >You must have been human at some point...
  244. >But you remember your entire life! You were always a pony.
  245. "I remember everything else though Mom..."
  246. >"Okay..."
  247. >You sit there in an uncomfortable silence for several minutes.
  248. "I'm still your daughter right?"
  249. >She wipes her eyes before nodding.
  250. >"It'll... be a strange adjustment that's for sure."
  251. "So when are we going home?"
