Sure, I Can Wait (!R) by dm29 Sure, I Can Wait (!R) by dm29
"Hello, um, Lyra. The mirror's not working right now."

Requested by :iconnightb1ader:, whose idea was to have Lyra camp out at the Mirror.

Well, you can always try the portal at Twilight's castle.

"Crossing parallel universes requires a lot of energy; it has been calculated that each opening requires drawing enough arcane energies, channeled using the Crystal Palace itself as a giant mana-superconductor, to power an entire city when converted to electricity, and that's only to catalyze the process that would allow the portal draw even greater source of magic from the background magical field needed to create the link between dimensions.

Since we don't have city-powering arcane power planets, each transit would require a long recharge after each use, and have only enough to maintain a portal sufficiently stable to send a pony-sized object through and back each time. 

It's not surprising, really, how difficult it is to use this portal; the quantum theory of parallel universes states that it is suppose to be impossible for information from one parallel universe to transit to another parallel universe. But no-pony told the portal maker that, did they?

Now, one can only imagine what the maker used it for, and what potential applications we can have for this if we can solve the power generation problem..."


--- Professor Magos Thaum, Ph.D Arcano-physics, currently leading researcher of the project investigating the Crystal Empire portal mirror.

And then Twilight made it a constant stable portal.

She is a prodigy, and she has her Friendship Castle, which could be a font of phenomenal magical power...

On the plus side, with Twilight's success in modifying the mirror portal, interdimensional travel has become practical for the exploration, exploitation, colonization and trading with inhabitants of other worlds across the myriad multiverse. Think of the massive social/political/cultural/economic transformation of Equestria with the literally infinite horizon now open before all of Ponykind!

Well, there's also a huge issue as well. It's an alternate universe, not more land. There's a parallel character to every existing character, and ponies change into humans and vice-versa. However, I imagine that this would start a series of highly-invasive studies as well as tons of new legislation. However, when it comes to trade, physical objects don't seem to have consistent properties traveling through the portal, such as the sudden fact that twilight gains/loses clothing traveling through the portal, how dragons become dogs instead, but magical artifacts like the crown remain completely unchanged. Magic also doesn't naturally exist within the human world, either, so there's have to be strict legislation on that as well, because polluting a world with forces beyond it's comprehension is not a good idea, as we've seen. Cultural exchange would be phenomenal, however, when it comes to the omnivorous diet of humans and treatment of horses, ponies, and like hooved animals, there'd be heavy controversy. (Horses in human world are canon, look at "friendship through the ages") There'd be a huge amount of information shared about both worlds between the worlds, and a lot of progress in quantum physics research with the confirmed possibility of parallel universes. There'd also be a problem involving Celestia's less-than-royalty position in the human world in comparison to the pony one, as well as a huge schism in religion. (You have a princess that RAISES THE SUN?!?) (Celestia's just a PRINCIPAL?!?) there'd be issues with having a border between such distinct countries being the size of a mirror. However, negotiations of embassies within reach of the portals would likely begin immediately, as well as cultural exchange, although a human meeting their counterpart could drive them insane.

Essentially, nobody'd know what to do, and there'd be problems right off the bat with discrimination and sense of identity. If a portal to equestria opened to our world under the same conditions, not even the whole Brony community could handle the situation, no matter how prepared they may think they are.

Besides, there's a LOT of vocabulary difference between Equestrian Dialect and English, which you can see any time a brony tries to say everybody or anybody, since the equestrian alternative applies specifically to ponies and not humans. I can imagine that the board of people dealing with the portal would comprise of Bronies, Haters (Likely Conservative Republicans, for having to deal with YET ANOTHER border), Worshippers, and people working for the Department of Defense.

I know. They did mention the Crystal Empire mirror was a prototype or something.

To be honest, the comic series, and the rest of the FIM expanded universe, had already wiped out a LOT of my headcanons (Though it is reasonably good in quality). I'm starting to consider ignoring it...

How much is exactly 30 moons? Is it like, a month? You know 30 actual moons? Or is it 30 moon cycles, meaning about a month each?
