Prologue: Welcome To Ponyville!
"Your Majesty, Commander Morphos has requested an audience with you."
"Bring him in."
An odd-looking, black being wearing blue armor walked in to the main hall of the hive palace.
"My queen," he said while bowing, "I have come to ask a favor."
"What might this favor be, commander?"
Getting up, the Elite Changeling said, "As you know, the planned invasion on Equestria should be taking place within the next two years, and so I wish to go the Equestria town Ponyville in disguise so as to spy on them, yet be able to freely roam the streets of the village, and not attract any unwanted attention to myself. I will stay in Ponyville for about two months at a time, and every two months, I will come report new findings, and live in the hive for a week at a time. I have already prepared a disguise."
The changeling stepped back a few steps, and engulfed himself in green fire. When he came out of the flames, he was a grey pegasus with a black mane and tail, and a cutiemark of a green fire with a pair of glasses above it.
"Hmmm... Interesting disguise. Permission to go to Ponyville is granted, but be warned, I WILL seek you out if you fail to return on time to many times," said the queen in a warning tone.
"Y-yes, Your Majesty, t-thank you, Queen Chrysalis," said Morphos as he transformed back into his old self and walked away.
"Ugh, finally here," Morphos exclaimed upon seeing Ponyville on the horizon. "That trip took WAY too long."
"I know, the trains in Equestria are soooo slow," said an adult female voice from above.
Morphos looked around and saw a dark purple pegasus mare with red highlights, a rainbow colored mohawk-like mane and long, smoother looking navy blue tail flying above him.
"And that's why I never travel outside of Ponyville," said the young mare as lowered herself to ground. "By the way, my name's Stormy Flash. Nice to meet you!"
Morphos replied "Likewise. My name is Morphos."
"Well then, Morphos, do you want me to introduce you to my buds? We're all meeting up later today at my aunt Twilight's place," said Stormy excitedly.
"Well, if I have enough time I might be able to... I still don't have a house here in Ponyville. In fact, this is my first time here. I wasn't even born in Equestria."
"Well, just come to the town library tonight, if you can. It shouldn't be too hard to find since it's a giant tree, but if you need help, just ask somepony."
"No prob," Stormy said as she flew away.
Morphos watched her as she did so, and started walking as thought to himself, "It may be a good idea to try and make a few friends here, as I might be able to get some extra information from her about any technology more advanced then It was 20 years ago."
With that , he decided to just fly the rest of the way to Ponyville.
