~ Mario and Mega Man ~
Mega Man: So you’re Mario, right? Nice to meet you! (Extends hand)
Mario: (Shakes hand and nods while smiling) Mm-hm!
Mario: ? (Taps finger on Mega Man’s hand, getting a metallic ‘dink’ sound)
Mega Man: Oh! Didn’t they tell you I’m a robot? I mean, I do have a human-like face but... wait; do robots exist in your world?
Mario: (Thinks, before nodding and then points at Mega Man while scratching his head)
Mega Man: (I guess that’s sort of a yes, but not robots like me...)
Mega Man: Well, robots like us are made to be able to think and feel on our own, just like other living beings. That doesn’t creep you out does it?
Mario: (Smiles before shaking head. He then gets an idea and pulls out a mushroom to give to Mega Man)
Mega Man: Huh, a mushroom? Umm, I appreciate the gesture, but I wasn’t designed to be able to consume food like biological beings do. I get my energy through recharging.
Mario: (Makes a shocked face, before making a more melancholic one)
Mega Man: (He’s... upset? Did I offend him or something? He is from another world, so they’d probably have different customs; maybe I was supposed to accept the mushroom anyway? I don’t know what’ll happen if I try to eat it, but I don’t want to be rude either...)
Mega Man: Uh, I guess it can’t hurt to give it a try- huh?
Mario: (Eating the mushroom with a content look on his face)
Mega Man: (Oh, I didn’t even notice that until just now. Maybe it wasn’t such a big deal after all? This would all be a lot easier if he actually spoke to me...)
~ Sonic and Finn/Jake ~
Jake: (Stretches his finger to touch one of Sonic’s quills and gets pricked) Ow!
Sonic: I don’t know what else you were expecting. (Bluntly) I am a hedgehog.
Jake: Yeah, but I thought space hedgehogs would be different!
Sonic: (Space hedgehogs?)
Finn: They say you’re the fastest thing alive; are you like a ninja or something.
Sonic: Heh, nah I’m just a guy that likes exploring the world and going where the wind takes me!
Finn: Man that’s deep. Bet my sword’s sharper than your spines though! (Grabs out his Finn Sword)
Finn Sword: Yeah man! I’m sharper than the half-clipped toenail of a giant!
Sonic: (Did that sword just talk?!)
Jake: Yeah, and I got wicked stretching powers yo! (Stretches out and enlarges arms to give Finn a noogie)
Finn: Hahaha! Cut that out man!
Sonic: (Surprised) Whoa, that’s actually pretty cool.
Jake: Thanks, though for some reason I can’t seem to go as big as I used to. (Sad face)
Finn: He used to be able to grow super huge, but ever since we came to this dimension he’s been sort of lacking. Not saying you aren’t useful though!
Jake: (Smiling) Aww, thanks bro.
Sonic: Any skill we can get is appreciated right now. Who knows what other weird stuff we’re gonna find here?
Finn: Whatever we find, I’m ready for it! Nothing gets my blood pumping better than a good adventure!
Jake: Yeah! (Fist bumps Finn)
Sonic: (Smiles) I’m starting to like you dudes already.
~ Mario and Twilight ~
Twilight: Mario, is it? It’s a pleasure to mee-
Mario: (Immediately kneels down before her)
Twilight: (He must have been told I was a princess. I should be used to this kind of attitude toward me by now, but from a person that came from a world so different to mine is unexpected.)
Twilight: I-it’s ok, there’s no need for that. I’m not a big stickler for formality.
Mario: (Gets up)
Twilight: (From what I’ve been told, he and his brother are human. They’re a bit different to the ones I’ve seen before.)
Twilight: I hear you’re very popular where you’re from. What exactly do you do?
Mario: (Using charades, he demonstrates a routinely encounter with his nemesis Bowser to save Princess Peach)
Twilight: That’s... interesting.
Twilight: (Didn’t they tell me he was a plumber? How is this in any way related? Is all of that really a common occurrence? No, I shouldn’t be so ignorant. I’m sure this makes sense in his world, and I should be respectful about that. He’s a good person and I know it.)
Twilight: Mario, I have to admit that there are still a lot of questions I have about you, and it will take some time before I really understand you. But even still, I hope the two of us can become good allies. I know what it’s like to have so many people depend on you, look up to you and to be treated with higher regard than what you’re really comfortable with. I hope you, me and the others can connect through our similarities, learn from each other’s experiences and accept our differences, however strange they may seem to be. What do you say? (Extends hoof to shake)
Mario: (Sleeping on the ground; snoring and occasionally mumbling about Italian food)
Twilight: (Shocked) (He fell asleep?! Am I really that boring?)
~ Mega Man and Finn/Jake ~
Finn: Whoa cool...
Jake: A new robot pal! Awesome!
Mega Man: Well actually, in our world the term ‘robot’ applies to have a lot of different machines. I’m what’s called a Robot Master.
Finn and Jake: (Collective excited gasping) The Robot MASTER!
Mega Man: (Sweat drop) The? Oh no no no, there are plenty of other robots like me.
Finn: A whole world full of master robots?
Mega Man: (I think there’s a misunderstanding. Maybe I should change the subject?)
Mega Man: So Finn, you’re a human right? You seem surprisingly powerful for one. Ah! N-not that to mean that all humans are inherently weak! It’s just that the humans in my world don’t rely so much on physical strength with robots around.
Finn: It’s cool brah. Yep, I’m the human all right!
Mega Man: (Again with ‘the’? Wait that’s right, I remember them telling me he was the last human in his world! I better change the subject... again.)
Mega Man: How long have you two known each other?
Finn: Pretty much since I was born; he’s basically like my brother.
Jake: Yeah, Finn and I are tightskees.
Mega Man: (Tightskees?)
Jake: We’ve got a bond that transcends this physical realm; a bond so great that not even the rusty utility knife of Death itself can sever.
Finn: (Chuckling) Come on man, now you just sound like a nerd!
Jake: Only a nerd would call me a nerd, ya nerd! (Laughing)
Mega Man: (Smiling) (Dogs really are a man’s best friend)
~ Sonic and Twilight ~
Sonic: (Looks at Twilight with a quizzical expression) (She looks like something out of a six year-olds colouring book.)
Twilight: (Looking back at Sonic with a bewildered expression) (Hedgehogs sure are different outside of Equestria.)
Sonic: So is this your first in a situation like this?
Sonic: I mean like going to another dimension.
Twilight: Well I have a few times before, but this is all even weirder.
Sonic: Heh, you get used to it.
Twilight: This has happened to you before?
Sonic: Yep. It’s like I’m a magnet for the weird stuff. Not that I mind though, I’m always up for a new adventure!
Twilight: I heard you were one of the fastest things alive. I have a friend who boasts about the same thing.
Twilight: Her name is Rainbow Dash, and she can clear whole skies in-
Sonic: It’s just that these names you ponies have are ridiculously cutesy; it’s actually kind of hard to take you seriously.
Twilight: (Sad expression)
Sonic: Erm, sorry! I didn’t mean to insult you-
Twilight: It’s not that. Rainbow... my closest friends haven’t been found yet. I know that maybe I’m fretting a bit much considering this is such a large unfamiliar place, but I just can’t help but feel worried if something’s happened to them. Almost everyone else I’m really close to is ok, but for some reason not even that girl knows where they are.
Sonic: That may be the case for quite a few of us. We don’t know how many people from each of our worlds have come here, let alone who exactly. If we still haven’t found them, maybe they’re still in your world.
Twilight: That’s true but... I love them so much; we’ve been through so much together and I hate for us to be apart, especially in such an unfamiliar situation.
Twilight: (Shakes head) I-I’m sorry, I am worrying too much. I must sound a bit needy and selfish; you and the others are probably going through the same thing.
Sonic: Don’t worry about it. You shouldn’t feel selfish for missing your friends; being alone just sucks.
Sonic: (Smiles) besides, I think it’s a good opportunity to make some new friends.
~ Mario and Finn/Jake ~
Finn and Jake: (Looking at Mario with starry eyes)
Jake: Could it be?
Finn: A human?
Finn and Jake: (Squeeing)
Finn: This is so cool! I’m a human too!
Jake: Wait, are there more humans in your world?
Mario: ... (Nods)
Jake: Dude this is amazing! Who’da thought of all these different dimensions we’d actually see more humans!
Finn: Dude I can’t even explain how hyped I am to meet more humans! Show us what you can do man!
Mario: (Jumps high into the air and does a series of flips and turns before landing on the ground)
Finn and Jake: YEAH!! (Applauding)
Finn: This is so freaking math!
Jake: Yeah man! Say Mario, you got female humans in your world too right? I think it would be great to finally hook Finn up with someone his own species.
Finn: (Blushing) Wh-what?! Dude!
Jake: Like maybe a princess or something? Finn’s always had a thing for royalty.
Finn: Come on man I don’t wanna deal with that junk right now!
Mario: (Glares coldly at Jake)
Finn and Jake: (!!)
Jake: U-u-ummm, f-forget what I said about princesses. A-any class I’m sure is totally fine!
Finn: Just drop it man we’ve already managed tick him off enough as it is!
Jake: (Man that’s scary; he was perfectly calm a second ago.)
~ Mega Man and Twilight ~
Mega Man: Princess Twilight Sparkle is it? Nice to meet you.
Twilight: Nice to meet you as well, and just call me Twilight.
Mega Man: No mean to offend you but out of all the people that came from different worlds, you’re the most... unique I’ve encountered.
Twilight: I understand, you’re a lot more different to the others as well... no offence. I’m just not used to seeing technology that’s advanced to the point of sentience.
Mega Man: And magic doesn’t really exist in our world; I suppose we both have quite a lot to learn from each other?
Twilight: (Smiles) I very much look forward to that. First however, we’re still going to have to get settled into this new world; Arcobaln.
Mega Man: (Nods) So far the inhabitants seem to be friendly. I get the feeling we’re going to attract a lot of attention, being aliens by technicality.
Twilight: As a princess, I’m used to that. My teacher’s working with the other princesses to try establish an alliance with the leaders of some of the countries. Hopefully we can get things set up so we have a place to stay, get resources that might help us get back to our homes and provide us with some legal protection from anyone who thinks we’re invaders.
Mega Man: That’s good to hear. My creator’s working with some of the other smart guys to get support from that research centre near the jungle area. They might be able to figure out what’s going on.
Twilight: They’re working really hard to sort things out. We should probably do our part as well.
Mega Man: I’m willing to help out this world or the other worlds the same way I would help my own. I hope the other guys feel the same way.
Twilight: I’m sure they do. Actually I was wondering.
Mega Man: What is it?
Twilight: We know that some really bad people from our worlds are here as well. I don’t want to doubt the defence forces of this world, but I believe it would help if we all took a stand against them together.
Mega Man: You mean like a team of fighters?
Twilight: Yes; personally I’d rather solve conflicts through more diplomatic methods, but I’m not above using force when I know someone intends to use what they have for nefarious purposes.
Mega Man: As am I. We should find out who the most experienced and skilled people from each of the other worlds are, and see if we can form a team to help Arcobaln fight back against the bad guys. I hope we can get at least one member from each world so we all have a good idea of we’re up against, but I won’t force anyone to join if they don’t want to.
Twilight: That sounds reasonable. Once we’ve all properly introduced ourselves to each other, we’ll get to talking about forming the team.
~ Sonic and Mega Man ~
Sonic: Sooooo, a robot huh?
Mega Man: They’re common in your world, if I’m not mistaken?
Sonic: Yeah... (For better or worse)
Mega Man: Don’t worry, I’m not bothered. Robots in my world are constantly used for evil as well; I do what it takes to protect innocents, and I’m sure you do so as well.
Sonic: (Smiles) I’m glad it’s like that. Speaking of which, there’s one thing about this situation that I keep thinking about.
Mega Man: What’s that?
Sonic: We’ve already faced off against people who hate our guts, including some arch nemesis’s and some of their mooks. They’re gone for now, and I get the feeling they’ll come back for more; that much I think is true. What I’m curious about is what they’ll be up to in Arcobaln, and what’ll happen when they meet each other.
Mega Man: I can’t say much about the other villains, but I know Dr. Wily well enough to know that in spite of how highly he thinks of himself, he’ll still resort to any means to try take over the world. On the other hand though, this situation’s a bit different since we’re in a completely different world.
Sonic: You think he would want to try get back home?
Mega Man: I would think so, but I get the feeling that he would want to try conquer this one as well.
Sonic: I can see Eggman doing the same thing; he doesn’t seem too different to Wily, actually. I wonder...
Mega Man: (!) You don’t suppose... they’d team up?
Sonic: Eggman isn’t really the sharing type, but in the place he is now he probably doesn’t have enough machines to tackle this Arcobaln’s defence forces. It wouldn’t be too farfetched to think that he’d team up with another robotics expert.
Mega Man: What about the bad guys from the other worlds? They’re different in ability, but apparently most of them have the same desires of taking over everything and being nasty in general.
Sonic: I’m not too sure about the others. Saying that though, I’ve heard that they have it out for the other guys the same way Eggman and Wily have it out for us. It’s possible that, if they all met up in the same way we’re doing right now, that they might come to an agreement and help each other out; not just to take over the world, but get rid of us.
Mega Man: ... That’s a pretty scary thought. We should get prepared for anything as soon as possible.
~ Finn/Jake and Twilight ~
Twilight: You two must be Finn and Jake! It’s a pleasure to meet-
Finn and Jake: (Both immediately kneel down before her)
Finn: We are humbled by your presence, your highness.
Jake: We are at your service, Horse Princess.
Twilight: Wh-what?! (Again with this? I suppose they have a monarchic society as well, but even still I didn’t expect this kind of respect so quickly! And where did ‘Horse Princess’ come from?)
Twilight: There’s no need for any of that, really. I’m okay with more casual interactions. Also, call me Twilight; for the record I’m actually the Princess of Friendship, not horses.
Finn and Jake: (Both immediately get up)
Finn: Ah ok; I’m totally down with that.
Jake: Whatever you say, Friendship Princess. So who is Horse Princess then?
Twilight: (Wow, they became informal quickly, not that it bothers me.) Once again, just call me Twilight. Also there is no ‘Horse Princess’.
Jake: I thought you were from the Horse Kingdom though?
Twilight: It’s called Equestria, and actually we have multiple princesses.
Finn: Oh, our world’s like that too!
Jake: We actually have a lot of princess friends. Finn being human, me being a magic dog and the both of us being gnarly heroic legends gives us a pretty mad rep.
Twilight: So that’s what Finn was; I couldn’t place a finger on it but I thought there was something about Finn that felt familiar.
Finn: (Excited) You have humans in your world?
Twilight: Not exactly; I’ve travelled to an alternate dimension where there were humans instead of ponies. I actually get transformed into a human whenever I go there.
Jake: Oh thank goodness, I was worried that not all of us have experienced the joy of hands.
Twilight: You don’t seem too fazed by all of this. Have you two done this before?
Finn: Sorta. Our worlds diverse enough, but I have travelled to an Astral Plane before.
Jake: Yeah, and I got killed a few times so I hung out for a bit in the Dead World. It’s pretty cool I guess.
Twilight: (Stares completely shocked at Jake)
Finn: Dude, you gotta stop bringing the conversation around that way.
~ Mario and Sonic ~
Mario: (Stares fiercely into Sonic’s eyes)
Sonic: (Does the same thing, with a smirk on his face)
Mega Man, Finn, Jake and Twilight: (Watching the staring contest from a distance)
Jake: I think I missed something, what’s going on here?
Mega Man: I don’t know. I was just talking to Sonic not too long ago, and then he noticed Mario and immediately went silent. They walked up to each other and they haven’t done anything since.
Finn: How long have they been doing that?
Mega Man: I lost track of the time. It feels like a long time though.
Twilight: It’s almost like there’s some sort of unresolved tension. Do you think they know each other?
Jake: I don’t know, but it definitely feels pretty intense.
Twilight: I hope they don’t end up fighting...
Mario and Sonic: Hmph. (Both smile and then walk off in different directions)
Finn: Well that was anticlimactic. (I was kind of hoping they would fight.)
Twilight: I’m not so sure it’s over. Let’s hope this doesn’t make things complicated.
~ The Super Dream Party ~
(Some time after they introduced themselves, they went off to find other people to help them make a team to fight against evil. The six of them are back where they first were when they talked to each other and are now standing around in a circle.)
Sonic: Back here again, huh? So who’d everyone bring?
Mega Man: Erm, this is a bit awkward but, I’m the only one around from my world that seems to be up for this. Most of Dr. Light’s other robots are for housekeeping or back-up, and one of my brothers, Cut Man, says he’d rather stay at the research centre to protect the scientists.
Twilight: That’s understandable. I’m the only one from Equestria that’s available as well. Princess Celestia and Luna are busy dealing with the leaders here, Zecora’s not much of an action type, and the rest are too young.
Sonic: They should focus on what they’re good at to help us. Usually my pal Tails would be around to pitch in, but he’s with Dr. Light to help with the inventions. Cream is too young for this kind of thing and Amy... I just don’t want to be around.
Jake: (Wow, talk about cold.)
Finn: Didn’t you say something about an echidna guy? He sounded like a good fighter.
Sonic: Knuckles? That girl said he was here, but I haven’t seen him around. He’s probably busy protecting this really powerful gem called the Master Emerald. He’s kind of a lone wolf anyway. What about you two?
Jake: Bubblegum’s with the other princesses, we left BMO with my girlfriend, and LSP just said “Whatever”. Marceline is probably around somewhere too, but she isn’t really the type to play the hero.
Twilight: How about you Mario?
Mario: (Shakes head, and using yet more charades demonstrates that Luigi decided to stay with Princess Peach as a bodyguard)
Mega Man: Ok, so... it’s just the six of us again?
Finn: I guess so. Weird.
Sonic: There’s something weirder. I might not be remembering correctly, but in a dream I had before waking up here I saw people that kinda looked like you guys.
Twilight: I was going to say the same thing! I didn’t notice it until you brought it up, but it’s like I’ve seen you all in a dream before.
Jake: (Batting eyelashes) Aww, are you calling us dreamy?
Mega Man: I may be a robot, but occasionally I have dreams as well. Did you guys see a whole bunch of white cubes that come from nowhere to create obstacles?
Sonic and Twilight: Yes? Wait what? (Both look at each other)
Finn: We saw that too.
Mega Man: We?
Jake: Finn and I share dreams all the time. The last one I had you guys were there too.
Sonic: Wait, wait wait...
Twilight: Just to clarify; did we all have a dream before we woke up in Arcobaln that involved white cubes and seeing each other?
Mega Man: Yes.
Finn and Jake: Yup.
Mario: Mm-hm. (Nods head)
All of them: .....
Jake: It’s gotta be destiny.
Mega Man: Huh?
Jake: We all had the same dream where we saw each other, then we were all found by that fairy that helped us find each other’s friends and led us all together, and now we’re the only ones available to form a team to fight against evil. Doesn’t that sound like, prophetic?
Twilight: (I think that sounds suspicious...)
Sonic: (Chuckles) I say you’re looking to into it. That being said, I’ve been able to take on old Egghead by myself all the time. If you guys are like that with your archenemies, then a team with just us should be enough to take on anything.
Twilight: You really think the six of us is going to be good enough? We still don’t know what might come at us.
Sonic: That’s true, but didn’t you tell me about how you and five other ponies have been able to save the day with just the power of friendship?
Twilight: ... You have a point there.
Finn: Yeah! And instead of friendship, we have swords, stretchy bods, kung-fu, cannons and wicked magic!
Mega Man: At the risk of sounding cheesy, I think we can do it if we just give it our best.
Twilight: Well if it’s just a team of us... (Smiles) I think that’s good enough as well.
Jake: Awesome! So now that we have that out of the way, what should we call ourselves?
Mega Man: Uuuh, the Good Alliance?
Sonic: (Bluntly) That sounds awful.
Twilight: The Elements of... Adventure?
Mario: (Shakes head)
Jake: What about Cotton Kitten Kisses?
Sonic: (Ignoring Jake) Freedom Fighters?
Finn: Why would we fight against freedom?
Sonic: What? No! I meant as in-
Mario: ★ Super Dream Party ★
Everyone else: (Eyes drawn to Mario)
Mega Man: (I guess he just talks when he feels like it.)
Jake: ...I kinda like it.
Mega Man: Well we did first meet in a dream.
Finn: I think the ‘Party’ bit at the end is cool.
Twilight: If it’s okay with you guys I’ll accept it.
Sonic: Hehe, it’s the corniest thing I’ve ever heard, but I think that’s what adds a bit of charm to it.
Finn: So it’s agreed then?
Sonic: I suppose it is. The six of us are officially the Super Dream Party!
Mario: (Extend right hand into the centre of the group circle)
Mega Man: (Does the same) Then for the sake of all the ones we care about in our worlds...
Sonic, Finn, Jake and Twilight: (Both follow suit of Mario and Mega Man)
Sonic: And all the innocent people of Arcobaln...
Twilight: We will combine our efforts to fight back against injustice and bring peace and harmony to everyone!
Jake: We’re the Super Dream Party, baby!
(Everyone looks at each other and smiles, and not a few seconds later a mystic light begins to form above their hands, getting their attention.)
Mega Man: That’s-!
(The light begins to fade and a small, winged humanoid projection comes into vision; it’s four moth-like eyes open up)
Jake: You’re back!
Sonic: I was wondering when you were gonna visit us next.
????: Please forgive me; right now my magic isn’t strong enough to keep this communicator apparition active for very long.
Mario: (Stares at the fairy-like being)
????: It would be easier if we met in person, but for now it’s better that I stay where I am.
Mega Man: At least you’re here now; we’ve been waiting for a while now. I’m sure you know why.
Twilight: You have a lot of explaining to do...
Finn: Serata Lilibell.
Serata: O-oh dear...
