During Twilight, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie's pursuit of finding their friends, the Cutie Mark Crusaders were making their attempts in fixing the whole age mess that Discord caused in Equestria. Their best bet was to go and see Zecora, so they embarked to the Everfree Forest in the hopes of meeting with her. To their surprise, the forest still remained in tact, most of it at least.

Apple Bloom: C'mon crusaders. We're almost there, I think.
Scootaloo: You said that five minutes ago.
Sweetie Belle: *carrying Cheerilee* I just hope that Zecora isn't a small foal either, or we'll have to look after two babies.
Apple Bloom: Look girls! *sees Zecora's home in sight*
Scootaloo: Finally, we're here.
Apple Bloom: *runs to the door and knocks* Zecora, are you there? *knocks again* Zecora?

The door opens and the crusaders are about to greet their friend, but instead somepony else answers. The pony that greets them is a green pony with a somewhat familiar hair style and bonnet.

???: Hello there.
Apple Bloom: Um... Hi, I was wonderin' if Zecora happens to be home right now.
???: You mean that nice lil' Zebra friend? She's home alright.
Sweetie Belle: Did you say little?
???: Sure did. Why don't y'all come and make yourselves at home.
Scootaloo: Thanks.
???: Aww, what a cute foal ya got there. Is she your lil' sister or somethin'?
Sweetie Belle: Uh... yeah. Her name's Cheerilee. Say hi Cheerilee.
Cheerilee: *looks at the mysterious green pony* Baba.
Sweetie Belle: She's still too young to start talking yet.
???: Hi to you too lil' filly.

The ponies go inside and notice a young foal playing with an all too familiar doll. Also, they saw their friend Zecora, but noticed that she too had undergone a change in age much like the mane six.

Zecora: Hello there fellow fillies, what brings you to my ocassion of festivities?
Apple Bloom: Zecora? Is that really you?
Zecora: Indeed, there is no other one but me? And who may I ask is the name of thee?
Apple Bloom: It's me Apple Bloom!
Sweetie Belle: And I'm Sweetie Belle.
Cheerilee: *crying*
Sweetie Belle: Oh no! Don't cry Cheerilee.
Scootaloo: I'm Scootaloo. *walks over to the cauldron with Zecora*
Apple Bloom: Ya don't remember us at all?
Zecora: I'm afraid not. Forgive me for not being the hope that you saught.

Apple Bloom walks away with disappointment and decides to talk with the mysterious green pony who is tending to the foal beside her.

???: Doin' alright?
Apple Bloom: *sigh* No.
???: Sorry to hear that.
Apple Bloom: ... How did you two come across Zecora?
???: Well, this lil' colt and I were at this farm all by ourselves while a bunch crazy stuff was goin' about. This lil' guy was chewing away at this here doll. I couldn't leave him, so I took him with me to see if I can find help. We got lost in the forest for a while, but then Zecora found us and let the two of us take refuge.
Apple Bloom: Wait a sec, you said a farm. Did that farm have a lot of apple trees?
???: That's right.
Apple Bloom: And this lil' foal here was at the farm too?*takes a closer look*
???: Yup.
????(red foal): *chewing on the doll*
Apple Bloom: It can't be! *notices who the foal resembles* Big Macintosh!?
Big Macintosh: *still chewing*
Apple Bloom: Then that means *looks back at the green pony* GRANNY!
Granny Smith: What!? Are you blind or somethin'? I'm no granny.
Apple Bloom: *heads back to Zecora* We've gotta make some kind of potion or what not that'll turn everypony back.
Scootaloo: But how, I don't think Zecora even remembers that stuff.
Apple Bloom: Hey Zecora, do you know anything about making an age potion?
Zecora: I can't say that I do, but how about instead I whip up a nice and tasty stew?
Scootaloo: I guess we're on our own then.
Apple Bloom: Looks like we'll have to make our own potion then.
Sweetie Belle: Uh, a little help you two. *trying to calm a crying Cheerilee*

With greater problems against them, the crusaders are on their own in creating a potion that will help remedy everypony's predicament.

Filly Zecora! Completely original, I have never seen that before x) although that could just be me. Zecora's room has that "isolated, used" feel not unlike the show, and the facial expressions... where can I begin? Hilarious, especially Apple Bloom's! The story has great continuation, as it retains that suspenseful tone to it, although "in tact" should be "intact" (sorry, personal grammar OCD). Bringing back Big Mac's doll (argh, forgot the name) is a great way to keep with the show as well. Overall, the piece is great, my only real complaint is Sweetie Belle's horn - it just seems a bit too... sharp. But besides that, another wonderful work.
What do you think?

Amazing story! I want this to be a legit episode! I love the way you drew filly granny smith, it reminds me of a page I saw on facebook! The though of having an age swap and how scared and frustrated the cutie mark crusaders would be a hilarious episode for season 3! The vibrate colours make the picture a delisious visual for the well written detailed piece below. Brvo for making such a great story and even better picture, plaese continue making these! They are truely FANTASTIC I cant wait to read some of your others :) Move over ponyville theres a new Lauren Faust in town!!!!!

for Discord's Revenge 12, Spike tried to get the hourglass from Discord, but it caused him to become a teenage winged dragon.

Can Zebra still speak Equestrian at that age, or just Swahili?

Filly Zecora is so cute.

Well that's a problem
boogerejean Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2014

Sombra may have been resurrected because of Discord, but fortunately, he was resurrected at the point BEFORE he discovered the Forbidden Archives.

He might even attempt to help, provided they help him find his friend, Princess Luna!


Let's do the Time Warp again!!!

Topsy(from Tom and Jerry): IT'S NOT POSSIBLE!?!?!?
LTblackcoat Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2012
personly i love the look of glee on Zecora.

i whould recomend for futher study "grannys" mane bands as they seem surpriseingly underdelevoped in comparasion to the rest of the pisce.

a quick sugestion of mine for this is, avoid strait lines (the hair whould not likely cause these) as it is truely very rare to find strait lines in nature and to have some hair a layer up from it covering it slightly so it blends in, if however it is a bead then i recomend some light reflectsion very simuler to same seen on the eyes.

I really try not to ask plot related questions, but please, are Pumpkin Cake and/or Carrot Cake effected by Discord's mischief, and will they play any role in the story, because I'm finding it most alluring.
ViralJP Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012
The two are affected by Discord's time chaos much like the others, but it's likely occurring offscreen. Sadly, it won't be playing any part in the story, though they might be shown in one of the later parts.
The-Lonely-Shepherd Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
That's unfortunate. Oh well, better luck for them next time, I guess.
Jdueler11 Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2012
What is wrong with deviant artists? You don't just tell a thrilling story and leave it hanging like that.

Oh, that Big Mac and Miss Smarty Pants! :rofl:
ViralJP Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2012
I wonder if Twilight misses Smarty Pants.
DarthWill3 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm sure she does. She's the one who accidentally gave her away.
The-Sanrio-fanboy Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012
I really want to see an episode where the CMC tries to get their cutie marks but accidentally uses Zecora's spell that turns eveyone in Equestria (Including Celestia and Luna with the exception of Spike) into fillies and babies. So the CMC have to find a way to turn them back to normal. It would bein a very cute episode starring the CMC! I hope the cast behind the show would think of doing an episode like this! Who's with me?
SPINO495 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012
Theirs even a story OOO!
BrunDeign Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2012
This would be great as an episode by itself.

Strangely I think it would be better minus Discord. I'd think it'd be better if it were just the fault of the CMC messing with Zecora's potions, accidentally adding a certain kind of de-aging ingredient to potions meant for Big Macintosh, Cheerilee, Zecora, and Granny Smith.

But besides that it's a great picture and the story you've made up for it is good as well.
