    Sombra's Revenge: Chapter 3

    GAME GUIDE POV<p>After being beaten by Sweet Death, I sat on a bench, disgruntled. It was the only song I was good at, too, "Gangnam Style"! After pouting for a while, I finally got up from the bench, and headed out to Ga<_>mestop. About halfway there, I caught something sparkling from out of the corner of my eye. Curious, I looked at the object. It was an amethyst! Heart pounding, I picked it up. It was the perfect shade of purple, with unnaturally perfect facets cut like a diamond. It couldn't have been simply always there, because it was cut and too conspicious. It must have belonged to somepony else. After stickin' the amethyst in my purse, I turned right around to my house, eager to tell Blacor and Magical Light of my discovery.<p>SONIC POV<p>I don't think the orb was built to let anyone use Chaos Control, because the teleportation to the other planet didn't go smoothly. When I came to, Tails and I were in unfamiliar surroundings. Everything was in unusually bright colors. I tried to get up on my feet, but I became unbalanced and fell onto my hands. No, those weren't hands. Those were hooves. I glanced over at Tails (who had become a yellow horse with wings, orange mane and tail, blue eyes, and a mark on his flanks that looked like a fox's tail), who also seemed just as surprised as I am. "Well, this is...weird," I said. "Too true," Tails replied. He and I looked at the detector, which showed that the Chaos Emerald was de<_>ad ahead, in the horse settlement. So, of course, we walked into town.<p>The detector beeped as Tails and I walked/trotted around town. The beeping became quicker, indicating that we were close. "We're almost there!" said Tails. Suddenly, a stampede of horses of all different colors came rushing by, separating us. After everything cleared out, Tails was nowhere to be seen. "Tails?" I called out. No one answered. After walking around for a while, looking for my friend, I bumped into someone.<p>GAME GUIDE POV<p>"Oof!" I grunted. I looked at the pony who bumped into me, I almost mistaken the blue stallion for Nitro. Then I remembered that Nitro was an alicorn with blue eyes. This one was a blue Earth Pony with, emerald green eyes, a darker blue mane, and blue wind for his Cutie Mark. "Pardon me," I said, embarrassed. "Oh, it's okay," the stallion replied. "Who are you?" I asked. "The name's Sonic."<p>((I dare you to guess Game's reaction. To all ponies (not Sonic OCs) who applied: You will appear in the next chapter. Sonic OCs, you will appear in Chapter 5.))
