Hah, success. The psycho mare had apparently given up trying to scare him off and decided to lead him somewhere with more vague threats. While yes she probably wouldn’t exactly be a trustworthy source, it was all he could go off of. So, off he went with the mare who had tried to kill him. It was just going to be one of those days wasn’t it?
Fortunately, it seemed that now they were finally getting out of the woods. This location was definitely better than the woods. Ponies were partying, tons of food, light. Of course this place being in the middle of the scary woods meant it probably wasn’t a good sign either. But at least it seemed that Lyra was here at least. By then the dream Lyra had left but, well, he just needed the real one.
Walking up towards her, he yelled out, ”Hey there Lyra, you doing alright?”
The ponies ignored the stallion's presence. Lyra looked up from her playing to notice Time Turner. "Oh, hey! Time Turner! Bon Bon, I hate to ask, but could ya bring him over here? I'm in the middle of something." The cream mare nodded, and stood up. She made her way over to Time Turner. She managed a small smile. "I see you made it to Lyra... But you didn't hide. Strange stallion, you are..." Her eyes wandered back to Lyra. "I was asked to bring you to her. Don't delay."

Time Turner waved to Lyra, but instead found himself being escorted by Bon Bon? Huh, how had he failed to recognize her earlier? Ah well, dream logic was a tricky thing.
”Yes, didn’t see much point in running away from anything,” he said, not phased about being called strange. It was probably one of his favorite descriptors. He followed Bon Bon back towards Lyra, where Time Turner figured he might as well keep up the honesty streak.
”Good to see you Lyra, you were just the mare I was looking for. Apparently there’s some kind of curse or sickness or something that’s keeping ponies asleep and dreaming and, well, apparently you got hit. But don’t fret because the cavalry is here,” he said, smiling,”Although I have to say your dream is rather…interesting. Do you read a lot of horror books or something?”
The moment that Time Turner told Lyra that she was dreaming, every single pony at the table paused. Their eyes all bore into the stallion with lifeless pupils. Lyra just blinked a few times and gave the place one more look around. "A dream, huh? I guess that makes sense. Cool. I lucid dream!" Lyra bit her lip in concentration. A chocolate shake appeared in front of her. "Awesome. Um, why am I fretting?"
Bon Bon seemed to be the only pony in the dream that wasn't focused entirely on the invader. A few of the ponies had even started to stand up. "Horror books? Nah. I read a lot of missing ponies reports and stuff like that to find mythical creatures. Also, some legends can get pretty grisly, if you know what I mean." Lyra didn't look too awful concerned about the fact that she was stuck in a dream. She plucked a few strings on her lyre, in the meantime.

The simultaneous stopping and staring was probably the first thing about this whole dream that caused Time Turner to freak out, just a little bit. Mostly because he associated such actions with the dream probably coming to try and take some kind of defensive action. For now, however, they seemed to just sit still as Lyra explored her new dream powers. When they started getting up, however, he got a bit more worried.
"Yeah, I know what you mean. Now then, why don't we see about waking you up. I mean, you wouldn't exactly want to spend the rest of your life here in these dark, cold woods," he said, glancing over at the ponies to keep an eye on them.
"So come on then, just say you want to wake up, and we can all get some hot cocoa or something, maybe listen to you play a little bit?"
The ponies stared at Time Turner with empty eyes. Yet, they all had an angry look to them. Lyra kept plucking away. "We're not in any danger, right? Come on, Timey! Pull up a seat! I'll play you a song. We're not in any hurry." More of the ponies stood up at that. Unbeknownst to the carefree mint mare, more copies of her with golden arms peeked out of the edges of the woods. Every single one of them glared at Time Turner. There looked to be about fifteen of them, and more were steadily peeking out.
Dream Bon Bon slowly looked at Time Turner. "You need to get out of this forest, Time Turner. You and her both." Lyra didn't even seem to notice the mare had said anything. She paused to take a hearty sip from the shake in her hooves.

”Well, to be honest, not getting much of a safe vibe here,” Time Turner said as he glanced at the surrounding ponies glaring at him and Lyra. The ghosts showing up in the woods around them didn’t help matters either.
Apparently, however, Lyra was not going to go of her own free will. Convincing her to go wasn’t working so, that left about only one option. Grabbing a hold of her foreleg, he started tugging on her.
”I think we need to go right now. Got angry ponies at the table here, and evil golden versions of you surrounding us in the woods. Honestly Lyra you have some really messed up dreams,” he said, showing a little frustration in the whole situation.
The mare yelped in surprise as Time Turner yanked her over. Immediately, everypony at the table stood up. The golden handed Lyras stepped out of the forest. For once, Lyra began to notice the more hostile aspects of her dream. Maybe she should go with Time Turner... This dream wasn't as happy as she thought. "Maybe waking up would nice... I wanna see Bonny and Sweetie Drops." She glanced at the dream Bon Bon hesitantly.
The cream colored mare gestured to a path that seemed to create itself into the woods. "Run. Before the dream takes you." Lyra looked back at Time Turner with urgency she hadn't felt before.

Apparently resorting to physical force had angered the guests at the table, further justifying his desire to get the Tartarus out of here as fast as possible. Apparently Lyra was finally coming around to the conclusion as well as she agreed waking up would be nice. Of course at this point it seemed making a run for it might not be possible. The golden Lyras had started getting closer, but if they moved now they might still be able to…
Or the dream Bon Bon could make a path for them. That worked too, and he made a note to make sure to hug the real life Bon Bon when they got out. Since, you know, he couldn’t give this one a hug without risking getting dream-killed. Which, while he wasn’t sure if it would actually do anything, he still figured probably wouldn’t be pleasant. Dream logic was confusing.
”Right, thank you dream Bon Bon,” he said, nodding at Lyra as a signal to start running before breaking off into a gallop.
”So then, focus on what you just said, about how you want to see Bon Bon and Sweetie Drops. Focus all you can on that thought so we can get out of here.” he yelled at her as they ran.
Lyra broke off in a gallop after the earth toned earth pony. The forest seemed to quake and advance on them as they escaped down the path. Lyras, now completely golden with red diamond accents covering them, slipped from the shadowy darkness to fight them. Lyra ripped off her own gauntlets and shot a few magic bolts at them. "I-I'm trying!" Her thoughts were fuzzy but she tried picturing it. The little house she'd spent so much time at. Bon Bon's smiling face. Sweetie Drops and her adorable little bunny. Their time together. All the little moments. This was a dream and Lyra did not want to stay any longer. Lyra shot a beam off of her horn, creating a doorway ahead of them. "Let's get out of here already!"
