I wrote a fanfiction that I'm still not done with yet, but this is the first part of the first chapter. I just wanted to share it and get feedback.
Chapter 1: A New Spell
Spike knew something wasn't normal. It was pretty obvious when he woke up in the middle of the night- too early for him, he might add- and the light was still on downstairs.
As he walked down the stairs, he heard zapping sounds. That in itself was pretty weird, but then he jumped back. A bolt of magic had zipped by him, almost hitting him. Spike sighed, and facepalmed.
"Twilight?! What are you doing?!" he shouted. "Why are you up this early?"
"Oh, hi, Spike!" Twilight said, stopping her magic frenzy. "I was just testing new spells I found in my old books." She levitated a book over to Spike. He took it, and read the title.
"Advanced Unicorn Magic for Dummies? Isn't that not possible or something?" Spike asked. Twilight rolled her eyes.
"You silly. It's fine!" She took the book back and read through it. "Ooh! This one looks good!" Twilight showed Spike the spell. Again, Spike took it from her and read it out loud.
"'Body Swap Spell?' Twilight, are you sure? Who would be crazy enough to help you test it?" Spike asked, then looked at Twilight, who was smiling at him. "No. Don't you dare. I am NOT swapping bodies with you. Forget it."
"Come on, Spike! For science!" Twilight said, following Spike around the library as he started cleaning up books lying on the ground. "It'll be a scientific breakthrough! And a magic breakthrough! Also, think of the possibilities!"
Spike rolled his eyes, and decided to humor Twilight. "What possibilities do you mean?"
"Like, for example, if you swapped bodies with me, you'd be a pony! That means you could be the same size as Rarity, and you'd get to hang out with her a lot..." Twilight trailed off, smiling.
"That would be nice..." Spike mused, then shook his head. What was he thinking? "Twilight, it doesn't matter. You forgot one thing: I'd be you. And I'd be a mare. Do you know how awkward a relationship with ANYPONY who was ALSO a mare would be?!"
Twilight grinned sheepishly. "Well... yeah. Oops."
"Besides, I'm not doing the spell anyway. Find another test subject," Spike said, then started back up the stairs. "I'm going back to bed."
As he passed the window, almost to his bedroom, Twilight's horn glowed. Spike barely had time to think [i]Uh-oh[/i] and duck before the beam of hot pink magic shot past him, almost hitting the tip of his scales. The spell hit the window and broke it, flying out of the library on its way to hit Celestia-knows-what.
Twilight blinked, and made an "oops" face. Spike got up off the floor. Looking through the window, he noticed that it was heading toward Sweet Apple Acres.
"Twilight...?" Spike said, nervously. "I think you just majorly screwed up."
