The Transformers/ My Little Pony crossover
Note: This takes place in between season 2 and the movie of TF G1. This can be whenever for MLP FiM. Both belong to Hasbro, not me.
“Is it ready yet?” Optimus asked.
“Not yet Prime, but we’ll get ‘er done soon.”, replied Ironhide.
The two Autobots were referring to the space bridge that the crew had been building for the past month outside of the Ark. About a month and a week ago, Perceptor had discovered through scientific calculations that if a space bridge was properly built, a portal could be created without the aid of another space bridge. Perceptor simplified that if a space bridge was simply given coordinates to anywhere in the galaxy, it would still work even without a proper receiving end. The only catch was that somebody had to stay behind to reactivate the portal. Optimus recognized this as an opportunity to gain an advantage over the Decepticons. If they could achieve that technology, they would always be two steps ahead of Megatron and his ‘Cons.
When Perceptor first brought this up, the main question the other Autobots asked was: “Couldn’t the Decepticons just link up with our space bridge and easily launch a surprise attack?” This notion was immediately shot down by Perceptor, who clarified that a space bridge can only work one way or the other, single or dual, not both. The Autobots began construction shortly after.
But of course, this was soon noticed by Megatron. Megatron ordered Soundwave and his Minicons to secretly infiltrate the Ark’s databases and retrieve information on the Autobots’ new project. But he specifically ordered no sabotage, as he had a hunch that if the Autobots noticed anything wrong, any advantage Megatron might gain will be lost. Soundwave’s mission was a success, and the Decepticons immediately began working on their own free- range space bridge. To keep Optimus from thinking the Decepticons were being “too quiet”, Megatron ordered a raid on a power plant or oil field every now and then. Two weeks later, both sides had finished their bridges.
“And it…is…done!” Wheeljack officially proclaimed to everybody as he connected the last bit of wiring.
“Wait a minute,” Grimlock interjected, “if Wheeljack say space bridge is finished, does that mean space bridge will go boom?”
“No Grimlock, I’m pretty sure it won’t explode just because I said it’s finished.” Wheeljack sarcastically replied.
At the same time…
“Lord Megatron, the space bridge is complete.” said Scrapper as he and the other five Constructicons turned away from their work.
“Excellent work Scrapper,” said Megatron, “Now turn on the machine! Today, we destroy the Autobots!”
The Decepticons raised their arms and gave a cheer. Starscream crossed his arms and smirked.
Optimus stepped forward. “What say we give a test run now that the bridge is finished? Just to see if it really works?”
“As you wish, Prime”, Perceptor said, “Any specific location you have in mind?”
“Just outside of the nearest city would be nice.”
Optimus turned around to face the rest of the Autobot crew. “I myself will go, but if any of you want to come I can bring a small team with me.”
In a second the twins Sideswipe and Sunstreaker came charging out of the crowd and entered the bridge’s radius. Up next was Ratchet. Before he entered the bridge he stopped and turned to Prime. “I want to be there to beat them if they mess this up.”
Afterward came Bumblebee, Ironhide, and Prowl. “That’ll do for now for volunteers” Optimus said to the remaining Autobots. Optimus then stepped into the bridge, and ordered for the bridge to be turned on.
“When we arrive at our destination, I’ll call you up on a com link” Optimus said.
“Scrapper, make sure you transport us onto the mountain directly above the Autobot base. There should be no mistake...” commanded Megatron.
“As you wish,” Scrapper said quickly.
Megatron turned to Starscream and his Seekers. “Starscream, you, Skywarp, and Thundercracker will accompany me on this trip,” Megatron turned to Soundwave, “You too Soundwave.”
“As you command, Lord Megatron,” Soundwave responded.
Starscream stepped forward. “Wait, O Mighty Megatron, why bring just a few at a time when we could transport our entire army there right now?”
Megatron turned to him. “Because, Starscream, we simply do not yet know the limitations of this device yet. I will not risk myself being offlined just because I wanted my entire army there quicker.”
Megatron and his chosen squad entered the bridge. “Now, activate it!” he ordered.
The Autobot and Decepticon space bridges were activated at the same time. This coupled with the fact that they occurred in nearby areas only furthered in messing up either side’s intended coordinates. Instead of finding themselves near a city or on a mountain, the users of both sides were instead sucked into what can be best described as a dimensional stream. Optimus, Ironhide, Bumblebee, Prowl, Ratchet, Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, Megatron, Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker, Soundwave, and Soundwave’s Minicons were falling down a “tube”. This “tube” appeared to them as hundreds of long white lines of light streaking vertically around them. Beyond the streaks of light was black darkness.
It took a minute for anyone to regain their senses and realize that they were not alone. Optimus and Megatron locked eyes.
Both sides attempted to fire at one another, but all their shots simply went straight up away from their targets. They tried meleeing, but nobody could reach anybody.
“This Decepticon trick will never work Megatron!” Optimus cried out.
“Liar! This is obviously a ploy being played out by you Autobots!” retorted Megatron.
But before they could continue their banter, everyone noticed that a light was nearing them at the end of their fall. When they hit it, the sound of metal being ripped in half like paper began ringing through their audio systems.
When Optimus finally got a visual of his surroundings, he was the only bot still conscious. His Autobots and the Decepticons were all in stasis lock. Also, they were entering the orbit of a planet. Fire began to burn on Optimus. While it pained his sensors he noticed that the burns wouldn’t be fatal to him or any of the others. Something was… off.
Soon enough Optimus was falling through clouds. But as he did he could have sworn he heard for a brief moment the screams of several people. His attention was immediately drawn to the nearing landscape. Optimus could see from the height he was at forests, mountains, rivers, and other natural characteristics of an organic planet. The other bots were beginning to spread apart in formation. Optimus braced himself for impact, and when he did, he went into stasis lock.
This is a fan fic that I've been wanting to do for a while. While there are plenty of TF/MLP crossover stories, most of them are badly written and out of character. There are a couple of good ones out there, but not enough. So, the inner Transfan/ Brony within me wrote this! It's already completed on FanFiction.net, but I wanted to circulate it around the Internet a little more.
The transformers in this story are from the G1 cartoon universe. Why?
Because A: Cartoon G1 is the most well known TF universe.
B: G1 provides the most creative freedom with what I can do as an author.
The ponies in this story are from the Friendship is Magic universe because, well, the others suck.
Enjoy! Comments appreciated!
BTW, the preveiw pic doesn't belong to me! It belongs to Dustee400.
