Technically, THIS is where the story really begins..
I feel i must start by reminding everyone that this story is an AU.
so, no pointing out continuity errors regarding the canon of the movie this is based on.
in this story..(evil voice) I CONTROL EVERYTHING, HA!! HA!! HA!!!
(normal voice) Now, on with my notes..
Readers may not that I pointed out an amulet that Spike is wearing.
keeping in line with the fact that Animals can't talk, AND Spike being a dog.
said amulet is Magice, and enabled Spike to communicate with Twilight and everyone else.
Otherwise, he's just a regular dog.
The name of one of the Teachers is a reference to "Rob Renzeti"
one of many cartoonists who worked on 'Friendship Is Magic'
(Renzetti is best known as the creator of Nickelodeon's 'My Life as a Teenage Robot')
keep an eye out for OTHER references that I may make.
I usually can't help putting in easter eggs for others to find.
As this is a TwilightxOC story.
I felt I should go ahead, and explain why Twilight and Flash Sentry aren't a couple, here
(and, also make clear that i DO NOT hate Flash, and that he still serves a purpose in my storyline)
Sometimes, romantic releationships don't end in tears.
Sometimes, couples split up on friendly terms and remain close in other ways.
for me, Twilight and Flash remain friends
(and, REALLY..those who have read Chapter One already know she's married to him, anyhow
so, there is really no need to fuss over Twilight being romantic with somebody else)
I also hope my official introduction of Alex was successful.
that he is every bit as Shy and Timid as Fluttershy is.
and, that he is hiding some unknown pain from everyone else
(those who have read my Oneshot Preview "a Life Cut Short" metroxlr99.deviantart.com/art/…
must ALREADY know what that pain is..but, please don't spoil it for anyone)
Hopefully, I left vague enough hints to keep everyone satisfied.
I also tried adding some humor in this chapter.
for one, I think it's hilairious that Applejack engages in horse riding
(and, that Pinkie Pie had a bad experience with a "wild stalion")
given that in the original series, they are ALL types of Horses.
heck, for all we know, a FEW of Applejack's horses may resembles their Pony Counterparts.
I also took advantage of Pinkie Pie's "Fourth Wall Breaking" humor.
by making an obscure reference to another cartoon when learning Alex's name
(if any of you can spot this reference, then kudos to you.)
the scene where Applejack introduces Alex to "The Gang" took some time.
as I (for whatever reason) wanted them to have sensible First and Last names.
Luckily, Pinkie Pie's full name was revealed in an episode of FIM
so, she was a pretty easy one..
Applejack's grandmother is called "Granny Smith"
so, i'm guessing her surname is Smith as well (close enough, anyway)
Fluttershy's surname "Posey"
is a reference to her original WIP Name during the production of FIM.
Likewise, Rarity's surname "Glory"
is a reference to a G1 Character that many say she is based on/similair to.
Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash didn't need any surnames.
as I figured "Sparkle" and "Dash" were good enough.
I also hope that I stayed true to the "Friendship" theme of teh franchise as a whole.
with the Main Six wanting to be friends with a complete stranger who doesn't have/never had ANY.
It may seem corny.
but, when you get down to brass tacks: it makes sense.
and, I also include a piece of the song "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls
as it seems like an appropiate song/music when meeting your love for the first time.
