Girls! Now this is a really interesting statue. What do you notice about it?
It's got an eagle claw.
And a lion paw!
And a snake tail!
This creature is called a dragonequus. He is the head of a pony and a body of all sorts of other things. What do you suppose that represents?
Its not chaos, you dodo!
Don't call me things I don't know the meaning of, and it is too chaos!
You're both wrong!
Actually, in a way you're all right. This statue represents Discord,which means a lack of harmony between ponies. In fact, you three have demonstrated Discord so well, that your each going to write me an essay explaining it. Now lets go, and I don't want anymore fighting.
It seems an old foe of mine, someone I thought I had defeated long ago has returned. His name is Discord. Discord is the mischievous spirit of disharmony. Before my sister and I stood up to him, he ruled Equestria in an eternal state of unrest and unhappiness. Luna and I saw how miserable life was for earth ponies, pegasi and unicorns alike, so after discovering the elements of harmony, we combined our powers, and rose up against him, turning him to stone... I thought the spell we cast would keep him contained forever, but since Luna and I are no longer connected to the elements, the spell has been broken... This is Canterlot tower where the elements are kept inside, since all of you recovered them, I need you to wield the elements of harmony once again, and stop Discord before he thrusts all of Equestria into eternal chaos... You six showed the full potential of the elements, by harnessing the magic of your friendship to beat a mighty foe. Although Luna and I once wielded the elements, it is you who now control their power, and it is you who must defeat Discord.
It's just too entertaining.
Stop it, Discord. You're not playing fair.
I'm not playing fair? Perhaps we haven't met. I'm Discord, spirit of chaos and disharmony. Hello!
]How are we supposed to find the Elements of Harmony, when you took away the labyrinth before we could get to the end?
Oh, wait, did you...? How funny! You thought the Elements were in the labyrinth? Twists and turns are my master plan; Then find the Elements back where you began. I never said they were in the labyrinth.
Can't move. The Princess has been sending these, since I came back upstairs. Make it stop!
These are all the letters I've written to the Princess since I lived in Ponyville, but why would she send them back? "Real friends don't care what your cover is, friendship is a wondrous and powerful thing... and like a path cut through the orchard, there will always be a way through... The best thing to do is stay true to yourself... Everypony has a special magical connection with her friends, maybe even before she's met them". Spike, Spike, it's all so clear! Don't you see? Discord's trying to distract us from what's important, he knows how powerful our friendships are and he's trying to keep us from seeing it. Do you remember what I said the first day we arrived in Ponyville? I told you that the future of Equestria didn't rest on me making friends, but the opposite is true! The friendships I've made since I've been here are what saved Equestria from Nightmare Moon, and now they need to save it from Discord! You're right, Spike, I've got to fight for my friendships. For them, for me, for Equestria!
We are gathered here today, to once again honor the heroism of these six friends, who stood up to the villain Discord, and saved Equestria from eternal chaos!
If I don't send her a letter by sundown, I'll be "Tardy!"
What's that now?
"Tardy", Spike! Late, I'll be late! Oh, how could I let this happen? I'm usually so organized, I've never been late with an assignment.
Oh, please! You're the most studious student ever! I'm sure the princess will forgive you if you miss one little deadline.
I'm afraid to take that chance, Spike, this is the ruler of all of Equestria we're talking about, the pony who holds my fate in her hooves! What if she doesn't forgive me?
Yeah, I don't think she...
What if instead she starts thinking I'm not taking my studies on friendship seriously?
Why would she...
What if she makes me come back to Canterlot and puts me back in school, and makes me "prove" I've been taking them seriously by giving me a test?! What if don't pass?!
Well, why wouldn't you pass...
She's my teacher. Do you know what teachers do to students who don't pass? They send them back a grade! But she won't just send me back a grade, she'll send me back to magic kindergarden.
I had to do something! I had nothing to report to Princess Celestia! I thought if I couldn't find a problem, I'd make a problem! The day is almost over!
But I'm supposed to send you a letter about friendship every week. I missed the deadline. I'm a bad student! I'm tardy!
You are a wonderful student, Twilight, I don't have to get a letter every week to know that
You can't punish her!
It wasn't her fault!
Please, your highness, we all saw that Twilight was upset...
But we thought the thing she was worrying about wasn't worth worrying about.
So when she ran off all worked up, not a single one of us tried to stop her.
As Twilight's good friends, we should have taken her feelings seriously and been there for her!
Please don't take her away from us just because we were too insensitive to help her.
Looks like you all learned a valuable lesson today. Very well. I'll forget Twilight's punishment on one condition.
From this day forth, I would like you all to report your findings on the magic of friendship, when, and only when, you happen to discover them.
Dear Princess Celestia. We're writin' to you because today we all learned a little somethin' about friendship.
We learned that you should take your friends' worries seriously...
Even if you don't think that she has anything to worry about.
And that you shouldn't let your worries turn a small problem...
Into an enormously huge entire-town-in-total-chaos-Princess-has-to-come-and-save-the-day problem.
Signed, your loyal subjects.
Follow me and very soon, you'll hear the tale of Nightmare Moon. Listen close my little dears, and I'll tell you where you got your fears. Of Nightmare Night, so dark and scary; Of Nightmare Moon, who makes you wary. Every year, we put on a disguise, to save ourselves, from her searching eyes. But Nightmare Moon just wants one thing, to gobble up ponies, in one quick swing. Hungry, she soars the sky, if she sees your a pony, she passes by. So if she comes, and all is clear, Equestria is safe another year!
Uh, Miss Zecora, if we wear costumes to hide from Nightmare Moon, so she won't gobble us up, how come we still need to give her some of our candy? A perfect question, my little friend, for Nightmare Moon, you must not offend. Fill up her belly, with a treat or two, So she won't return, to come eat you!
CITIZENS OF PONYVILLE! WE HAVE GRACED YOUR TINY VILLAGE WITH OUR PRESENCE, SO THAT YOU MIGHT BEHOLD THE REAL PRINCESS OF THE NIGHT! A CREATURE OF NIGHTMARE IS NO LONGER, BUT INSTEAD A PONY WHO DESIRES YOUR LOVE AND ADMIRATION! TOGETHER WE SHALL CHANGE THIS DREADFUL CELEBRATION, INTO A BRIGHT, AND GLORIOUS FEAST!
Did you hear that, everypony? Nightmare Moon says she's gonna feast on us all!
What? No children, no! You no longer have reason to fear us! Screams of delight is what your princess desires, not screams of terror!
NO, TWILIGHT SPARKLE! WE MUST USE THE TRADITIONAL ROYAL CANTERLOT VOICE FOR WHAT WE ARE ABOUT TO SAY. IF YOU CHOOSE TO FEAR YOUR PRINCESS RATHER THAN LOVE HER, AND DISHONOR HER WITH THIS INSULTING CELEBRATION, WE DECREE THAT NIGHTMARE NIGHT SHALL BE CANCELED! FOREVER!
She's changed, Pinkie! She's not evil or scary anymore! And she definitely doesn't want to gobble you up!
Well, duh, I know that. Sheesh, Twilight. I'm almost as big as her. How she can gobble me up?
So why do you keep running away and screaming?
Sometimes it's just really fun to be scared.
Fun? Pinkie Pie, you're a genius!
No, I'm not. I'm a chicken.
CITIZENS OF PONYVILLE! YOU WERE WISE TO BRING THESE CANDIES TO ME, I AM PLEASED WITH YOUR OFFERING. SO PLEASED THAT I MAY JUST EAT IT INSTEAD OF EATING YOU!
Princess Luna. I know there's not gonna be any more Nightmare Night, but do you suppose maybe you could come back next year and scare us again anyway?
Child. Are thou saying that thou likest me to scare you?
It's really fun! Scary, but fun.
Yeah! Nightmare Night is my favorite night of the year.
Well then. We shall have to bring NIGHTMARE NIGHT BACK!
Whoa! You're my favorite princess ever!
Dear Princess Celestia, when you first sent me to Ponyville I didn't know anything about friendship. I met somepony tonight who was having the same problem - Your sister, Princess Luna. She taught me that one of the best things you can do with friendship, is to give it to others and help them find it themselves. I am happy to report that all of Ponyville has learned that even if somepony seems a little intimidating, wven scary, when you offer them your friendship, you'll discover a whole new pony underneath, and even if my Starswirl the Bearded costume didn't go over, this still turned out to be the best Nightmare Night ever.
Oh, Sweetie Belle! My one and only sister! What have I done?! All of the time I could have spent with you was wasted, complaining and wishing you were gone! No! I must get her back! I must! As Celestia is my witness, I shall never be sisterless again!
And that's why I'm adopting Applejack as my big sister!
A sister is someone who loves and takes care of another sister. Applejack's a real sister.
Applejack, why do you have to be so good, and make me look so bad?
Oh, Rarity. Once again you're thinking about yourself. Being sisters is a give and take. You've been doing a whole lot of taking, but you haven't been doing a whole lot of giving.
But of course I give! I give lessons! Reasonable demands!
But you never give in! Being sisters is like, apple pie! You can have amazing apples, and you can have a wondrously crispy crust, but only together can you have a perfect apple pie!
But apart all we are is just a pile of mush and some crumbly dry mess... I know what i need to do! I just hope it isn't too late!
I'll start! Having a sister is just about the bestest thing in the world. But it sure isn't the easiest.
I'm agree! Being a sister is a wonderful thing! But it takes teamwork! Sometimes it's about compromizing. Sometimes it's about accepting each other's differences. But mostly it's about having fun together! Even if it means getting your hooves a little bit dirty.
It is one we call "Heart's Desire", a dash will ignite the rooster's fire. With Heart's Desire his talent comes into view, and he'll give a mighty cock-a-doodle-doo!
It's me, I commit it. I didn't earn my Cutie Mark, they're all fake! I figured the Heart's Desire would help me gain what I wanted most, so, when Zecora left her hut, I mixed up a special potion and put the rest of the Heart's Desire in it... I'm great. And I've never been happier to be a blank flank. But I'm awful sorry I lied, especially to you gals. I was so desperate for my Cutie Mark I just got carried away, and I'm really sorry I snucked those flowers from you Zecora, I won't blame you if you never wanted me to come by again.
Now, Applebloom, do not be silly, you're always welcome, my little filly. With each mistake you learn something new, growing up into a better you.
Applebloom, would you mind writing to princess Celestia and telling her what you've learned?
I'd be happy to, Twilight... "Dear princess Celestia. Waiting for what your heart desires can be really hard, so you may try to take a shortcut. But this dishonesty never works, because you didn't earn what your heart desired. The only cure is being honest with yourself and others, and that's something every heart desires."
Ah sure am proud of you, sis. Seems that you've finally learned the importance of patience.
Yup, all good things come to those who wait.
Dear Princess Celestia, I used to think that the most important traits to look for in a pet, or any best friend, were all physical competitive abilities. But now I can see how short-sighted and shallow that was. Today I learned what the most important quality really is: A certain kind of spirit. a stick-to-it-iveness, a never give up, can do attitude. That's the mark of a real winner. And this tortoise has it.
Gesundheit. You just can't stop that little guy. He's like a, like a... tank!
There just aren't enough words in the dictionary to describe Rainbow Dash's awesomeness.
I can think of a few new words.
And I bet modest is not one of them.
No, but she is kinda awesome.
Who am I kidding. All anypony talks about is Mare-Do-Well this, and Mare-Do-Well that! What about me? How could everypony forget about me so easily? I mean... Have I changed? Same sleek body, same flowing mane, same spectacular hooves. Nope, I'm still awesome! They're wrong! But, then, why am I all alone? I hate being all alone.
I don't understand! Why? Don't you want me to be a hero?
Of course we want you to be a hero.
But a real hero doesn't brag.
I guess I did start to brag a little.
Ok, a lot.
Celebrating your accomplishments is natural...
But rubbin' them in everypony's face is not.
Yeah, the only thing that should be rubbed in anypony's face is chocolate cake.
I think we're gettin' off-topic here.
What we're trying to say is, it's great to be really good at something, but it's important to act with grace and humility.
That makes loads more sense. You're right. And I guess I should also act with grace and humility when others outshine me, like Mare-Do-Well.
Sounds like you've got a letter to write to Princess Celestia.
Pro: Seeing the Derby from a VIP box is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; Con: going to the Derby cuts into the amount of time I have to finish Twilight's outfit. Pro: Fancy Pants is the most important pony in Canterlot, his stamp of approval could mean big things for me here; Con: Twilight's party might not be as sophisticated as the Derby, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't put all of my energy into creating her birthday ensemble. My ponyville friends will appreciate my hard work more than anypony. I hate to let them down, and I won't! Opal! I am going to the Wonderbolts' Derby as a guest of Fancy Pants!
珍奇：因为我是那种所有小马 / 我是那种所有小马 / 我是那种所有小马 / 都应该认识的小马。
Because I'm the type of pony / Yes I'm the type of pony / Yes I'm the type of pony everypony / should know.
Yes. Yes, I do know them. They may not be as sophisticated as some of you Canterlot ponies, but they are my best friends, and they are without a doubt the most important ponies I know.
Dear Princess Celestia, I wanted to tell you about the important lesson I learned during my visit... I learned that no matter where you go in life, you should never forget that you are the product of your home and your friends. And that is something always to be proud of, no matter what.
He is starting to mature, of this fact I am quite sure.
Mature? So he's just growing up?
But that doesn't explain why he keeps, grabbing things. A dragon's heart is prone to greed, a steady diet to make growth speed. Then the resulting bigger size, only makes their hunger rise. If this trait should go unchecked, if Spike continues to collect, more growth will certainly occur, he is going to turn into a monster!
You mean, the more things a dragon collects, the bigger and greedier he gets? But how do we stop him before he's completely out of control?!
If his monstrous ways you wish to impede, you must prevent him from practising greed.
Be quiet. You've got nothing to be proud of. You steal everypony's things, terrorise the town, and use me as a weapon against my own friends. Which, as horrible as it is, I can almost understand because you're a dragon and all. But this, this is a crime against fashion!... Oh no! You are not getting this gemstone! This was given to me by my dear friend - Spikey-Wikey! The kindest, sweetest, most generous dragon ever. And it is too precious to me to give to a greedy old beast like you!
Here, Rarity, you take it. It would mean even more to see you happy than to eat it myself.
I, I don't know what to say! This is just so generous!
Oh, what now? I suppose you'll be eating me or something... SPIKE? You're the rampaging dragon?!
Rarity! I need to tell you something! Just in case we don't make it! I've always sort of had a crush...
Spike, I just have to tell you how absolutely proud I am of you.
Proud of me?
Yes. It was you who stopped, well, you, from destroying Ponyville. You are my hero, Spikey-Wikey.
Dear Princess Celestia, today I learned a great lesson about friendship. Uhm,you might think that it would feel good to get lots and lots of stuff, but it doesn't feel nearly as good as giving something special to somepony you really care about. Well, I learned that it truly is better to give than to receive, and that kindness and generosity would lead to true friendship. And that's more valuable than anything in the world. Well, almost anything.
Now, Pinkie, are you sure you really understand the responsibility of watching over two babies?
I can be responsible! Why, responsibility is my middle name! Pinkie Responsibility Pie.
Hi, I finished up the work I had to do, so I thought I'd stop by and see if you needed any help.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for coming! I can't begin to tell you what my day has been like. I mean, these babies just won't listen to reason, and don't even get me started on their taste in stand-up comedy!
It's okay, Pinkie, I figured you would need some help. That's why I stopped by.
Excuse me? Babies take a lot of work, and some ponies are just not cut out to handle the responsibility.
Is that so?... Well, thanks for stopping by, Twilight. Sorry, I don't have time to visit. I'm very very busy with my responsibilities here.
I'm happy to help, it's no trouble a...
Well, of all the du... She thinks I can't handle things on my own! Maybe because I haven't handled things on my own? Well, I can handle things on my own!
Dear Princess Celestia, I've always had fun playing with little kids, and I though babysitting meant just more playtime, right? Wrong! Being a caregiver is way more responsibility than just being a playmate. And today I learn that sometimes, our desire for responsibility can outrun our actual ability to handle it.
What is that thing?
They must be windigoes!
My mentor, Starswirl the Bearded taught me about them. They're winter spirits that feed off fighting and hatred. The more hate the spirit feels, the colder things become.
Then, this is our fault. We three tribes. We brought this blizzard to our home by fightin' and not trustin' each other. Now it's destroyin' this land too.
And now our bodies will become as cold as our hearts. All because we were foolish enough to hate.
Well, I don't hate you. I actually hate Commander Hurricane a lot more than I hate you guys. Actually, I don't really hate her. I just, really really really really really really really really really dislike her.
Well I don't hate you guys either.
Nor do I.
No matter what our differences, we're all ponies.
What was that?
I didn't know unicorns could do that!
I didn't either! Nothing like this has ever happened before. But I know it couldn't have been just me, it came from all three of us, joined together in friendship.
齐：友谊之火永存在我们心间 / 只要它在燃烧 / 我们就不会分离 / 虽然有争吵，也是少又少 / 欢笑和歌谣常伴左右 / 我们全部都是小马朋友 / 全部都是小马朋友直到永远！
The Fire of Friendship lives in our hearts / As long as it burns / we can not drift apart / The quarrels arise, their numbers are few / Laughter and singing will see us through / We are a circle of pony friends / A circle of friends we'll be to the very end!
Applejack, you're not a failure!
And we're your friends! We don't care if you came in 50th place! You're still number one in our books!
So, you're not upset or disappointed?
But what about the Mayor? I don't think I can face her and tell her I didn't get that money to fix the broken roof!
Applejack, we can always find a way to fix that hole in the roof, but if you don't come back, we'll never be able to fix the hole in our hearts!
Dear Princess Celestia, it's a tad easier to be proud when you come in first ,than it is when you finish further back. But there's no reason to hide when you don't do as well as you'd hoped. You can't run away from your problems, better to run to your friends and family.
Come on, Rainbow Dash, keep grinding!
We don't have time for quality control if we wanna win this thing!
Get back, you! One bad apple spoils the bunch!
Applejack, help me!
There's no point in winnin' if we cheat.
We'll just have to work harder, come on everypony!
Alright then, double time!
Dear Princess Celestia, I wanted to share my thoughts with you. Ahem. I didn't learn anythin'! I was right all alon'! If you take your time to do things the right way, your work will speak for itself. Sure, I could tell you I learned somethin' about how my friends are always there to help me and I can count on them no matter what, but, truth is, I knew that already too!
I hate to admit it to myself, and would reeeally hate to admit it to my friends, but, I love this story! I, I... I love reading!... I'm an egghead.
Thanks, Twilight. I'm sorry I made such a big deal about all this. I thought reading was just for smart ponies like you.
Rainbow Dash, just because you're athletic doesn't mean you aren't smart!
Yeah, just look at me!
Reading is something everypony can enjoy if they just give it a try.
Yeah, I get it. I shouldn't knock somethin' until I've tried it.
That's a great lesson.
We may have given you the teeny-tiniest bit of love potion, that may have turned out to actually be a love poison. And you may gave gone just a teeny-tiniest bit nutty.
But we only did it because we thought you and Big Mac would be really happy if you could be each other's very special someponies on Hearts and Hooves Day.
Our hearts and hooves were in the right place.
We appreciate that you care about us and want us to be happy, but…
But no matter how good our intentions might have been, we should have never meddled in your relationship.
Nopony can force two ponies to be together.
It's up to everypony to choose that very special somepony for themselves.
Cranky said he would never forever be my friend. It was horrible.
I know this is hard for you, Pinkie, seeing that you're friends with everypony. But you just have to accept that Cranky is gonna be an exception. He just doesn't wanna be bothered.
Yeah, he doesn't wanna be bothered by your over the top, super hyper antics.
No no, it's ok, Twilight. I get what you're saying, what you're both saying. And I guess I can leave Cranky alone, right after he accepts my apology.
Dear Princess Celestia, there are many different kinds of friends, and many ways to express friendship. Some friends like to run and laugh and play together, but others just like to be left alone, and that's fine too. But the best thing about friendship is being able to make your friends smile.
Oh, go right ahead, Pinkie Pie. You first.
Right there! That's the problem!
You've got to stop being such a doormat.
A pushover, darling. You've got to stand up for yourself! Promise us.
Ok, I promise.
Fluttershy, what are you doing, that's no way to behave!
Didn't you see what he did to New Fluttershy? And he thought New Fluttershy was a pushover!
No, sweetie, he didn't. We saw the whole thing. We think that you've taken your assertiveness training a little too far.
What? You just want New Fluttershy to be a doormat like Old Fluttershy! But Old Fluttershy, is, gone!
New Fluttershy? Old Fluttershy?
What happened to Nice Fluttershy? We want that Fluttershy back.
No, you want Wimp Fluttershy, you want Pushover Fluttershy. You want Do-Anything-To-Her-And-She-Won't-Complain-Fluttershy.
Too many Fluttershies to keep track of. Make it stop!
Things getting too complicated for your simple little brain, Pinkie Pie?
Now stop right there! Let's not let things descend into petty insults!
Why not? I thought petty was what you're all about, Rarity, with your petty concerns about fashion.
Hey, leave her alone. Fashion's her passion!
Oh and what are you passionate about? Birthday cake? Party hats? I can't believe that the two most frivolous ponies in Ponyville are trying to tell New Fluttershy how to live her life when they are throwing their own lives away on pointless pursuits that nopony else gives a flying feather about!
Looks like Nasty Fluttershy is here to stay!
I cannot believe what that monster Iron Will has done to you!
Iron Will's not a monster; He's a minotaur!... I'm the monster.
Fluttershy, are you in there?
It's Pinkie Pie and Rarity!
Go away. Go away before Nasty Fluttershy strikes again!
Oh, sweetie, we've all said things that we regret.
Pinkie's right, I'm the only one to blame. But don't worry, I'm never coming out of my house again. Everypony will be a lot safer with me and my mean mouth locked away.
Sweetie, Pinkie Pie doesn't blame you, nor do I. You just received some bad advice from that Iron Will character.
Yeah, he's the one that made you act super-duper nasty!... What I mean is, there are other ways to assert yourself besides yelling at everypony.
Yes! You can stand up for yourself without being unpleasant about it.
I'm not sure I can, I'm too far gone. Whenever I try to assert myself I become a monster.
Oh sweetie, you're not a monster.
No, but he is.
You're amazing, Fluttershy, you totally stood up to that monster!
In fact you didn't change at all! ou are the same Old Fluttershy that we've always loved!
The one we missed!
Don't worry, Old Fluttershy is back for good.
I'm sorry I took the whole assertiveness thing too far. Friends?
柔柔：亲爱的宇宙公主，有时像我这样害羞的小马要为自己出头挺难的。我第一次尝试时不喜欢自己变成那样。但是我学会一件事，维护自己和改变自己是两回事。现在我知道如何表示反对，又不会变得令人讨厌。 Dear Princess Celestia. Sometimes it can be hard for a shy pony like me to stand up for myself. When I first tried it, I didn't like the pony I became. But I've learned that standing up for yourself isn't the same as changing who you are. Now I know how to put my hoof down without being unpleasant or mean.
Twilight, you've got to listen to me!
Who are you? I mean, you're me, but I'm me too. How can there be two 'me's? It's not scientifically possible. You are not scientifically possible!
Twilight, please! I have a very important message for you from the future!
You're from the future?!
That's right, now listen...
What happened to you? The future must be awful.
Please! I don't have much time!
Is there some sort of epic pony war in the distant future or something?
Actually, I'm from next Tuesday morning, but that's not important right now!'
I can't believe time travel is really possible! How did you, I mean, I, figure it out?
The time spells are in the Canterlot archives. But that's not...
Really? Where? I've never seen them.
They're in the StarSwirl the Bearded wing. Now, you have to listen to me...
Is time travel fun, or does it hurt? I have so many questions... I have something extremely important to tell you about the future, and I only have a few seconds so you've got to listen! Whatever you do, don't...
Future Twilight? Oh no, what was she trying to warn me about? Her clothes, her mane, that scar: what a mess she is!... I mean, I am. Or I will be? She must want me to prevent whatever horrible thing happens in the future!
Why isn't anypony surprised to see me sneaking around in here? Is it possible there never was a disaster, and I've just been making myself frantic over nothing?!
I don't get it. If Future Twilight wasn't warning you about a disaster, then what was she trying to tell you?
I don't know, but I do know one thing. I look ridiculous!
Yeah, you do!
And it's all because I couldn't stop worrying and let the future handle itself. Well, not anymore. From now on I'm gonna solve problems as they come and stop worrying about every little thing.
Dear Princess Celestia, Seeing the great dragon migration made me wonder what it meant to be a dragon. But now I realise that who I am is not the same as what I am. I may have been born a dragon, but Equestria and my pony friends had taught me how to be kind, loyal and true. I'm proud to call Ponyville my home and to have my pony friends as my family. Yours truly, Spike.
And you were scared… Yes, I did tell you to never give up. And to believe in yourself. You're right, my friends, I shouldn't give up. I will get my confidence up and show everypony that I am a good flyer! A great flyer!
Two point three?! That has to be some kind of mistake! I worked so hard!
Fluttershy, that's a huge improvement!
You did awesome, Fluttershy!
No I didn't! I thought I'd gotten over my nerves, but they still got the best of me. There's no way I'll fly with 10.0 wingpower tomorrow!
So you won't fly with 10.0 wingpower. Every bit counts!
How would you feel if everypony else was flying with 10.0 wingpower, and you were flying with 2.5?
Actually it was only 2.3 and...
Well, uh, I'd feel, umm...
Exactly! Humiliated! I'm sorry Rainbow Dash, I just can't do it!
795! They are so close! Fluttershy, they need you up there!
I won't make a difference!
You can make a difference! My measly 2.3 wingpower is still too little!
It's sticking at 795! I don't know if they've got any more in them!
Do it for Equestria! Do it for Rainbow Dash! Do it for yourself!
Dear Princess Celestia, you can feel like what you have to offer is too little to make a difference, but today I learned that everypony's contribution is important, no matter how small. If you just keep your head high, do your best and believe in yourself, anything can happen!
What is important is that you understand, how your column makes the ponies that you're writing about feel!
I do understand, and we've all been feeling guilty. But we just want our cutie marks so badly!
Do you really think that writing nasty things and making everypony feel horrible is your destiny?
When you put it that way...
To the citizens of Ponyville. For some time now you've been reading this column to get the latest dirt and the hottest buzz, but this will be my final piece. We want to apologise for the pain and embarrassment we've caused. You see, I'm actually three little fillies: Sweetie Belle, Apple Bloom and Scootaloo. As the popularity of our column grew, we got swept up in the hype. We knew that what we were doing didn't feel quite right, but we ignored the guilt because everypony seemed to want to read what we were writing. From now on, we promise to respect everypony else's privacy, and we won't engage in hurtful gossip anymore. All we can do is ask for your forgiveness, Ponyville. Signing off for the very last time, XOXO Gabby Gums.
Dear Princess Celestia, today, I learned that it's not good to jump to conclusions. You have to find out all the facts before saying somepony did something. If you don't, you can end up blaming somepony for something they never did. This could hurt their feelings! And it can make you look really foolish. So from now on, I will always make sure to get all the facts!
Sunshine, sunshine, ladybugs awake; Clap your hooves, and do a little shake!
The Princess is about to get married, I'm sure any negative behaviour she might be displaying is simply the result of nerves.
And I'm sure it's the result of her being an awful pony who doesn't deserve to even know Shining Armour, let alone marry him!
Think maybe you're bein' just a tiny bit possessive of your brother?
I am not being possessive! And I am not taking it out on Cadence. You're all just too caught up in your wedding planning to notice that maybe there shouldn't even be a wedding!
他是我永远的好朋友大哥 / 现在我们却再也不能复合。
Maybe I was being overprotective. I could have gained a sister, but instead, I've just lost a brother.
He was my big brother best friend, forever / And now we'll never do anyting, together.
Finally the moment has arrived/ For me to be one lucky bride.
Oh, the wedding we won't make/ He'll end up marrying a fake/ Shining Armour will be...
Mine. All mine.
Ever since I took your place, I've been feeding off Shining Armour's love for you. Every moment he grows weaker, and so does his spell. Even now my minions are chipping away at it. He may not be my husband, but he is under my total control now. And, I'm sorry to say, unable to perform his duties as Captain of the Royal Guard!
Not my Shining Armour!
Soon, my changeling army will break through. First, we take Canterlot, and then, all of Equestria!
Shining Armour's love for you is even stronger than I thought. Consuming it has made me even more powerful than Celestia!
The Elements of Harmony, you must get to them, and use their power to defeat the Queen!
Love's in bloom/ A beautiful bride and handsome groom/ I said, Love's in bloom/ You're starting a life and making room for us.
