  1. “I thought you said you knew what you were doing! How did you make a mistake this bad?!”
  2. >“Anon - er, Lun…. Lunanon? No, that sounds like a good fit for us. We must come up with a name for you as well to avoid confusion.”
  3. >You face hoof.
  4. “Focus, please. How did you cock up the spell?”
  5. >“We are not certain what went wrong. Perhaps something was lost during translation.”
  6. >You are completely lost at this point. And still trying to get used to your ethereal mane constantly moving and distracting you.
  7. “What do you mean translation? I thought you knew the spell.”
  8. >Lunanon drops her head and kicks at the dirt.
  9. >Apparently the body swap hadn’t carried over how you were both used to walking and moving in your normal bodies. Thank god for that.
  10. >“We went through the royal archives, specifically the old section of the library of magic.”
  11. “How old are we talking about, Lun….. Lunanon?”
  12. >May as well try getting used to the confusing situation.
  13. “The spell was written in the dead language our ancestors used when we were still a filly.”
  14. “And you didn’t think any of this was a bad idea? Clearly the spell was forgotten because it was dangerous or easy to fuck up!”
  15. >You see Lunanon’s face tighten up as she tries to hold back tears.
  16. >“We said we are sorry. Clearly, if there is one thing we are good at, it is as you say, ‘fucking up.’”
  17. >She turns and runs towards your home.
  18. “Luna, wait!”
  19. >Too late, she slams the door behind her.
  20. >And you hear the audible click of the lock.
  21. >Great. Not only were you stuck in a body that wasn’t yours, you were locked out of your own home.
  22. >Er, your former home, or body’s home…..
  23. >This shit is already giving you a headache.
  24.  
  25. >“Princess Luna!”
  26. >You turn around to see Twilight landing and trotting over to you.
  27. >Oh shit. Time to play it cool.
  28. “Hey Twily.”
  29. >Goddammit, good job cocking that up already.
  30. >Twilight looks extremely confused.
  31. >“Luna, I think you’ve been spending too much time with Anon lately. You’re starting to sound like him!”
  32. “Yes, indeed. Heh heh.”
  33. >You just slo-mo dodged that bullet.
  34. >“Where is Anon, anyways? It’s not like him to leave the Superbird outside.”
  35. “He, uh….. went inside for a bit. Said he’d be back out in a short while.”
  36. >“Oh. So how are you tonight, Luna? How long till you have to be back to the castle?”
  37. ‘I, er, we have the night off tonight. No royal shit to put up with tonight!”
  38. >Really? That was smooth.
  39. >Twilight looks at you suspiciously now.
  40. >“Princess, what is going on? You don’t seem like yourself tonight at all.”
  41. “It’s nothing, really. Just trying to relax, not be so formal.”
  42. >Hopefully she bought that, it looks like she did.
  43. >“Alright then, I have to get back to the library, Spike said the newest order of books were scheduled to come in before 11 tonight.”
  44. “I’ll tell Anon you stopped by. Have a good night!”
  45. >Twilight starts to trot off, then stops.
  46. >“I just have one question, Luna.”
  47. “Ask away, Twilight.”
  48. >“I was reading one of Anon’s books, and it said that Plymouth and Dodge had planned to build cars like his in 1971 as well, but they didn’t. Do you think they just wussed out?”
  49. “THAT’S A LOAD OF SHIT, NASCAR CASTRATED THE WING CARS BECAUSE THEY WERE BETTER THAN ANYTHING ELSE THE OTHER MAKES COULD COME UP WITH!”
  50. >Fuck, busted.
  51. >Twilight gasps and gallops back over to you.
  52. >“Anon, what happened?! Why are you Luna?! And where is she really?!”
  53. “Luna got a bright idea to try out a spell that she had translated, and clearly didn’t do something right. Somehow, we swapped bodies. And Luna really is inside, in my body, but the door is locked.”
  54. >“Why is the door locked?”
  55. “I…. sort of lost my temper a bit. It didn’t go over well.”
  56. >Twilight frowns and baps you on the head with her wing.
  57. >“You really need to work on keeping your emotions in check. Why don’t you just teleport in and apologize?”
  58. “Twi, I may be in Luna’s body, but I have no idea how to use magic.”
  59. >“Teleportation is simple. Close your eyes and focus, and picture yourself in the place you want to be.”
  60. >This seems stupid, but you go along with it.
  61. >Closing your eyes and focusing on your living room, you wait to sense something, anything to tell you it had been a success or failure.
  62. “Twilight, this isn’t working. I told you I couldn’t do it.”
  63. >“Open your eyes, then tell me that.”
  64. >As your eyes focus back in, you find yourself jump back in surprise.
  65. “We’re in my living room. How?”
  66. >“Told you it would work. Magic is an odd thing. For many spells, once it is learned, it cannot be forgotten. It’s almost like a natural reflex to do it, as long as one has a magic reserve and way to discharge.”
  67. “….. I still don’t get it, I never learned any spells. So how could I have used it?”
  68. >Twilight face hoofs in frustration.
  69. >“Think of it this way, Anon. When you and Luna swapped places, your consciousness and memories were the only thing that crossed over.  Natural abilities, such as magic, were left in the respected places.”
  70. “Okay…… but wait, how do you know about this body swap crap? Body swap wasn‘t even the thing Luna was aiming to accomplish.”
  71. >“The spell itself may have been lost to all but a few ancient tomes, but the history and basic mechanics of it can still be found in other books.”
  72. >Should have known bookworm found it in a book at some point.
  73. >“What was the spell she was trying to cast, anyways.”
  74. “She was trying a spell that would basically allow her to see and feel everything I did, so she could experience what it would be like to thrash the Superbird around the track.”
  75. >Twilight cringes at your explanation.
  76. “What, what’s the matter?”
  77. >“It just sounds really dangerous to me. I mean, even if that had worked, with Luna not being in a physical body with a magic reserve or way to discharge, I don’t see how she would be able to return to normalcy.”
  78. “….So this plan was completely fucked from the beginning. Awesome.”
  79.  
  80.  
  81. “Lunanon, please open the door. I didn’t mean to lose my temper.”
  82. >“Lunanon?”
  83. >Twilight looks at you as if you had lost your mind.
  84. “She picked it out herself to avoid confusion in this confusing mess.”
  85. >“So what did you come up for yourself?”
  86. >Facehoof, this time by you.
  87. “Twi, let’s focus on getting Lunanon out of the bedroom.”
  88. >“We request you leave us alone, we are not coming out!”
  89. >Judging by Lunanon’s voice, she has been crying for the past ten to fifteen minutes since she went  in the house.
  90. “Come on, Lunanon, you can’t just live in there the rest of your life.”
  91. >“We can still try!”
  92. >You sigh. Sure, it would be possible to teleport in, but you aren’t comfortable doing that.
  93. >In the end, it could just make the tension of the situation boil over.
  94. “I’m sorry, I know you were just trying to have fun, and it backfired a bit. We all make mistakes Luna. I still love you.”
  95. >Twilight went wide-eyed.
  96. >“What did you say?”
  97. >Well shit, you got it in stereo from both sides of the door.
  98. “…..I, uh…. Um..”
  99. >Did you really love her? Where the hell did that come from?
  100. >Before you can react, Lunanon has thrown open the door and embraced you.
  101. >At least you got her out of the room.
  102. >There was going to be some serious reflecting on your feelings later, though.
  103. “Anyway, someone have an idea how to fix this?”
  104. >“I might be able to find something in the archives in the castle, but it will be a few days at least. Celestia might have an idea, but I’m not sure how she would react to Luna’s experimentation.”
  105. >Lunanon droops her head with Twilight’s words.
  106. “We’ll figure something out, Lunanon. In the meantime, guess we’re going to have to get used to this.”
  107. >“The Princess is right, you both just need to act like nothing is out of the ordinary till I find something.”
  108. >Lunanon giggles.
  109. “What’s so funny?”
  110. >“Oh nothing, PRINCESS Anon.”
  111. >Goddammit. This night just keeps getting better.
