"So do we why don't we go get her then?" asked Dash.
"Because we don't know where she is." The Doctor replied, rubbing his face with a hoof. "Wait...that's it!"
"What's it?" asked Twilight.
"A Locating spell!" he exclaimed excitedly.
"I'm not sure I follow..." began a very confused Twilight. "Wouldn't it just lead us back here to our Princess Celestia?"
"If it was cast by anyone else, then that would be the case." he turned around to face the princess. "I know you're feeling weak, but if you could just try casting a spell to locate your past self..."
"I'll try..." she replied, before closing her eyes and with some noticeable effort her horn began to glow with its golden aura.
Almost as quickly as it had been cast, the spell faded as Celestia collapsed back onto her throne.
"PRINCESS CELESTIA!!" The two mares shouted in unison, rushing to her side.
"I...I'm fine." she insisted. "I just need to rest and I'll be alright..."
"Do you know where she is?" asked The

"This is the TARDIS." The Doctor explained. "T-A-R-D-I-S. That's Time And Relative Dimensions In Space-it's how I get around."
"But, what is it?" Twilight pressed, still confused.
"It's my ship...and when convenient, time machine, library, medical bay-" but, Twilight's ears perked up at the word 'library' and tuned everything else out.
"Did you say library?" she asked, excitedly.
"Yes, but I'm afraid the tour will have to wait..." he replied, trotting over to the control panel where he pulled a few levers.
"What did you mean by 'ship'?" asked Rainbow Dash, suspiciously while thinking of the bizarre science fiction novels that Twilight was always trying to get her to read.
"And what did you mean by 'this form'?" Twilight added, remembering his comment from earlier.
The Doctor stopped fiddling with the control panel before sighing.
"All right, this may come as a shock to you...but, despite my outward appearance-I am not a pony."
"Then what are you?" Dash challenged,

The Doctor stumbled out from the TARIDS upon reaching the Ponyville library. The sun was setting as twilight cast its shadows across the town's landscape. He couldn't help, but chuckle at the irony of the thought.
Up ahead, in his blurring vision he could see a violet ball of light bouncing up and down in the air as it headed towards him as it was accompanied by a feminine voice.
"Are you alright?" she called out to him. "Do you need medical attention?"
"No." he replied weakly. "I'll be fine...I just need to speak to...Princess Twilight Sparkle."
"That's me...I guess." she replied, somewhat dismally.
Even in his weary state, the thought occurred to him that seeing an injured stallion practically fall out of Police Call Box-which didn't exist in this world, as far as he could tell-was probably very strange for the poor mare.
The jelly-like feeling in his legs made it quite difficult to stand, let alone maintain his balance, yet somehow he persevered.

The Pegasus Paradox: ProloguePrologue
A stallion with a brown coat and an even darker shade for his mane galloped through Ponyville wearing a white collar and green neck tie and the image of an hourglass on his flank, he was The Doctor.
The entire town seemed to have been literally turned upside-down thanks to Discord's magic; buildings floated in the air and upside down, pigs were actually flying, the roads were now completely made out of soap, and those were the changes that had been immediately noticable.
He had been summoned to Canterlot for an audience with Princess Celestia herself. She had informed him of the villain Discord, a creature known as a draconequus and the Master of Chaos. While she had faith in her student; Twilight Sparkle-
That had been as far as she got in her explanation before being cut off as seemingly vanished into thin air. There was no one else in the room and he didn't see her horn glow with the typical golden aura that emitted from her horn when she typically used magic, plus he highl
