about

There once was a unicorn named Twilight Sparkle.
She was very smart, studious and always worked hard to make her friends happy. One day, Twilight worked very hard helping her friends
and was given the title of Princess, a palace in Canterlot
and even an illustrious pair of wings!

Twilight must handle the new responsibilities of royalty while maintaining the balance between work and her friends. The fate of Equestria hangs in the balance when a new dark threat arises and challenges the harmony between Twilight and her friends.

Everything is going to be fine.

---------------------------------------------------

This album has been in production since July of 2012 and has easily been my longest running project, clocking in at over 1100 project hours. When I wasn't sleeping, I was working this album. There's so many little details that I can't wait to share with all of you.

If you absolutely cannot afford this album and still want to have a copy, PLEASE do not hesitate to write me and I will make sure that you get a copy. Otherwise, if you could spare the money it would help a great amount to keep my work alive.

Thank you very much for all the fun times so far, and all the times yet to be had.

I can't tell you how much it meant to me.

Track Name: Starborne
I want you to look up.
Do you see the stars in the night sky?
They remain as a constant reminder.
In every one of those glimmering lights, there’s a piece of you.
Every fiber of your being came from these humble giants.
When you feel the world is bearing down on you, just look up.
No matter how scared you are.
You are not alone, and you never will be.
As long as you keep looking up,
You’ll always find your way…
Home.
Track Name: Like You
Somebody told me of a silly little thing called destiny
Go unchecked, I’ll go blind finding how it got the best of me

The moon and the sun, the stars in the sky
Alone on the top, I don’t even want to try.
We've made it this far all my good friends
I really don’t want this to be the end.

What if I can’t?
What if I don’t?
What if I’m not?
What if I won’t?

I've never given it much thought
I've spent all my time proving all I've got
For the first time in a while I’m not prepared
And frankly, I'm just a little scared

What if I can’t?
What if I don’t?
What if I’m not?
What if I won’t?

What if I'm not ready to earn my wings?

It’s been a while, it’s been a while
It’s been a while since we met like this
Please don’t fear as you can see
I've undergone some changes

It’s something new, it’s something new
It’s something new that I’m getting used to
It’s still me under the figure
It’s still me, your friend

I must be off, I must be off
I must be off to see her again
She’s mentored me just like before
But this time, I'm so scared.

I have to know, I have to know
I have to know why I was chosen
For a future involving us
Is all up in the air.

What if I can’t?
What if I don’t?
What if I’m not?
What if I won’t?

This isn't the end, I swear
This isn't my last goodbye
I’ll will be back as soon as I’m able.
I promise you, I promise you
That I will see you again somehow
Somewhere?
Someway?
So maybe? No?
I don’t want this!

I don’t want the power
I don’t want the fame
I don’t want these wings
I don’t want that name
All I want to do
Is be right here
With all my friends
That hold me dear
So to your offer
I must decline
For destinies,
I’m changing mine
Self-evident
All you said was true
I just don’t want…
...to be…

...like you.
Track Name: Maturity
It's not your fault.

I understand why you're so scared
Molting feathers unprepared
But have you only looked ahead?
Ceasing Nightmares, that was you
Taught Discord a thing or two
So why's your heart brimming with dread?

You've made it obvious enough
Compared to which, it's not so tough

So maybe you'll see
With clarity
What it means to me
To be everything I'll know you'll be
And soon you will see
That maturity
And formality
Inherit directly

Silenced braggarts couldn't know
Dissolving Kings and saved the show
But was the heart you shelved repaired?
Averting bitter wedding ends
Finished spells and fixed your friends
Your element is fit to wear

You're passing all these petty tests
It's proven that you are the best

So maybe you'll see
With clarity
What it means to me
To be everything that you can be
And now you will see
That maturity
And formality
Inherit directly

With nothing else left to do,
The final obstacle is you!

---I knew you were different from the very moment I saw you.

So make a choice my Twilight
I put the time to highlight
Every little minor detail
And spell it out in front of you
I'll tell you now it's alright
I'll never shun your insight
Rejecting every little thing
All your learning's been leading to

...yes…

She wore the crown with borrowed pride
We shed some tears and raised her high
Hail our new Princess Twilight
Take to the sky.
Track Name: Faulted
I think
I might not know
I might not see
I couldn't tell
The implications
Of
Destiny
and crowny things
Unfurled wings or
Staring at the
Sun
Having fun or
Living life as
Number One
Why must I make that
Choice?
I'll let you down
I'll leave you hurt
I lost my voice
Yet, I'm still singing

I'm not cut out for this
I've bitten off more than I can chew
The town has grown disdainful
There's not much left to lose
For that I apologise
It took too long to realise
I can't tell you how much it meant to me.

I think
I might not know
I might not see
Don't comprehend
The simple things she
Does
It gets to me
It's killing me
It eats away
The sanity I've
Left
Behind my friends
And family
And now I see
I can't handle the
Noise
I'll let you down
I'll leave you hurt
I lost my voice
Yet, I'm still screaming

I'm not cut out for this
I've bitten off more than I can chew
The town has grown disdainful
There's not much left to lose
For that I apologise
It took too long to realise
I can't tell you how much it meant to me.

I'm not cut out for this
I've bitten off more than I can chew
The town has grown disdainful
There's not much left to lose
For that I apologise
It took so long to realise

I can't tell you how much it meant to me.
Track Name: Control
It pains me to see her
Disheartened by that power
With not much left I could do

I hear the calling
Of country in confusion
Without direction left unheard

I know, it's risky
But she's damn near perfect
Remove her crutches
Keep her from branching out

I want to protect them
But don't they know she's worth it
To bear a jagged road ahead?

For now, they're worried
I've too much faith within her
I hear them chanting...

“Who's really in control here?”

I hoped I never had to say
Your five friends are still in the way
Distractions only lead astray
I'm sorry there's no other way…

I'm sorry.
I didn't want it to come down like this.
I'm sorry.
I'd rather have myself to blame.
I'm sorry.
I never wanted it to end like this.
But if you were in my position
You'd do the same.

I know that she'll forgive me...
Track Name: Something Missing
I gave it my all and yet you changed me.
I gave it my all and then you took my life away.

She never held me back.
She only held me up.
She taught me when to play
A pawn to her rook
When my world was in check
She taught me how to fly.
She taught me when to lie.
And slowly I became
A precious, perfect
Pretty little princess.

In the back of my head, in the back of my mind
A silent thought still counting time
The words fall shorter than the page
The clock is blotting out my cage
With nothing but everything to do
One sketchy thought would still ring through
“What wasn't good enough with me
That wasn't good enough for you?”

I never wanted power
I never wanted fame
So blessed are these wings
And all the world they changed….

They changed.

So go!
Take it away.
I never wanted it to be like this
But I guess you know best.
So go!
It's not so strange
When all I wanted was to make you happy
Make you happy
Make you happy!

Do you know just how it is?
Do you know just who I am?
I don't know anything
On how to stop this!
Looking back as the sun goes down
These stars are burning out
This is how it ends
This is how it ends.

The stories she scrawled out
Were too planned out and uninteresting
Writing letters hoping
Someone out there is still listening.

There is no other time
So wear your broken crown with pride
Learn boundaries you'll never find
You broke your word
I won't break mine

There was no talking back
Now watch as she reacts
So perfect dressed in black
And still I'm thinking that...
It feels like I'm just another piece
But something's missing.

A cold day in the sun
The reign already run
My only choice resembles
Sink or swim but
I'm still in the water.
“Without a friendly face
She'll get some needed space.”
Strip off, dissolve your labels
Sister, Student
Unicorn and Daughter

In the back of my head In the back of my mind
A central star lost satellites
The words fall shorter than the page
These walls are holding in my rage
Where nothing but loneliness are due
One question brings a darker hue
“What wasn't good enough with me
They're taking me away from you?”

I never wanted power
I never wanted fame
So blessed are these wings
And with them I remain.

Abstain.

So go!
Take them away.
I never wanted it to be like this
But I guess you know best.
So go!
It's not so strange
When all I wanted was to make you happy
Make you happy
Make you happy!

Do you know just how it is?
Do you know just who I am?
I don't know anything
On how to stop this!
Looking back as the sun goes down
These stars are burning out
This is how it ends.
This is how it ends. (I never needed friends.)

The stories she scrawled out
Were too planned out and uninteresting
Writing letters hoping
Someone out there is still listening.

There is no other time
So wear your broken crown with pride
Learn boundaries you'll never find
You broke your word
I won't break mine

There is no taking back
Now watch as she reacts
So perfect dressed in black
And still I'm thinking that...
It feels like I'm just another piece
But something's missing

I know I'll never face my fears.
I know I'll never face your fears.

I know that now, I know that now.

Something's changing
Something strangely
Something's shattered
Rearranging
Something's stolen
Something's broken
Vital words
Have yet been spoken
Something's severed
Something's tethered
Something's odd
About the weather
Something's blackened
Now reacting
Turn your back
She's only actin'
Something's older
Some thing's newer
Hold your breath
The world grown bluer
Someone's twitching
Someone's wishing
You don't know what
I've been missing
Something's missing...

I gave you my all and then you changed me.

I never wanted power
I never wanted fame
So blessed are these wings

So go!
Take it away.
I never wanted it to be like this
But I guess you know best.
So go!
It's not so strange
When all I wanted was to make you happy.

Do you know just how it is?
Do you know just who I am?
I don't know anything
On how to stop this!
Looking back as the sun goes down
These stars are burning out
This is how it ends.
This is how it ends. (I never needed friends)

The stories she scrawled out
Were too planned out and uninteresting
Writing letters hoping
Someone out there is still listening.

There is no other time
So wear your broken crown with pride
Learn boundaries you'll never find
You broke your word
I won't break mine
There is no talking back
Now watch as she reacts.
So perfect dressed in black
And still I'm thinking that...
It feels like...

The stars are burning out.
Track Name: Faultless
Now where did it go wrong
For our little girl
Behind the mask?
Severing stems
Wilting roots
An insurmountable task

Hold your tongue for not much longer
Feel the panic setting in
Look at all she taught you
Know your magic from within
Put on that pretending smile
Wear the crown another day
Keep those doubts but to yourself
Lest they take your friends away

I can't tell you how much it meant to me, it meant to me
I can't tell you how much it meant to me, it meant to me
When you said that one day I'll be stronger than all the rest
When you said that one day I'll be
Faultless

What was relevant
Motivation
Now slowly slips away
What will that was left
Met silence
The path led her astray

Hold your tongue for not much longer
Feel the panic setting in
Look at all she taught you
Know your magic from within
Put on that pretending smile
Wear the crown another day
Keep those doubts but to yourself
They won't change things anyway

I can't tell you how much it meant to me, it meant to me
I can't tell you how much it meant to me, it meant to me
When you said that one day I'll be stronger than all the rest
When you said that one day I'll be
Faultless

--please

I can't tell you how much it meant to me, it meant to me
I can't tell you how much it meant to me, it meant to me
When you said that one day I'll be stronger than all the rest
When you said that one day I'll be...

And every friend along the way was just a tool, was just a tool
And every little boundary was just the rules, was just the rules
And everyone who listened in was just a fool, was just a fool
When I'd be crowned and you'd bow down and tell me everything was fine
When you would speak of destinies, I only know this isn't mine.

I can't tell you how much it meant to me, it meant to me
I can't tell you how much it meant to me, it meant to me
When you said that one day I'll be stronger than all the rest
When you said that one day I'll be
Faultless
I can't tell you how much it meant to me, it meant to me
I can't tell you how much it meant to me, it meant to me
When you said that one day I'll be stronger than all the rest
When you said that one day I'll be

Track Name: Semantics
I'm so tired
I'm so scared
I'm so frightened
I'm impaired.
I'm a liar
That is true
It's not my fault
so how 'bout you?

A postulate you showed me where
I wasted time and didn't care
Is that what all of this amounted to?
So here I am just singing songs
I've more than accepted being wrong
So maybe one of these days you'll sing along

I'm thankful for all that you have given me
The theories you taught best ever so subtly
Only matter
When I prove them right.

So, fuck that shit.
I just don't wanna deal with it
I spent way too much time arguing the semantics
Fuck that shit.
I just don't wanna deal with it.
I spent way too much time with the tired pedantic.

I'm so tired
I'm so scared
I've been trying
I do swear
My forgiveness
Lost its hue
It's not my choice
Becoming you.

If royal work is what you want
I'll show you now just what I've got
It doesn't matter who makes the rules around here
This work in progress moves as planned
Set in motion by your own…

...hand?

It's not like I can't make up words around here.

I'm thankful for all that you have given me
And every single letter wrote so cautiously
Only matter
When they're vaporised.

So, fuck that shit.
I just don't wanna deal with it
I spent way too much time arguing the semantics
Fuck that shit.
I just don't wanna deal with it.
I spent way too much time with the tired pedantic.

So, fuck that shit.
I just don't wanna deal with it
I spent way too much time arguing the semantics
Fuck that shit.
I just don't wanna deal with it.
I spent way too much time with the tired pedantic.

“I'm sorry.
I never wanted it to end like this.
“I'm sorry”
She whispered as she damned me with a kiss.
I'm sorry.
I didn't want it to come down like this.
I'm sorry
My plan which I had from the start
Tore out your heart…
...and broke it apart.”

I wish I could tell you that it's working
These fears are not lurking
But guess what...

I can't.

I wish I could think that it won't change me
A complex deranging
But guess what...

I don't.

I wish that I could
Speak off this record
And tell you I'm better
But guess what…

I'm not.

I wish I could tell you that everything is gonna be fine.
Everything's gonna be fine.
I'll make everything fine.
But guess what?

I won't.

--IS THAT WHAT YOU WANTED?!
Track Name: Like You?
I never wanted power!
I never wanted fame!
I never wanted wings!
But, my! Look how that changed!
All I want to do
Is watch it burn
Look how many fell
Guess it's now my turn
So, to your offer
I must enact
You changed my life
There's no changing back.
Self-evident
All I learned was true
Free will's a myth...
Just…
…like…
…....you...
Track Name: Heartache
Did they ask about the filly in the mask?
Did they even care at all?
Did they hold out for a princess who never came?
Would they catch her when she falls?

I made it obvious enough.
Who would have thought to call my bluff?

Did it burn for everyone?
Or was it just my turn again?
Did it hurt for everyone?
Or was I just alone again?

Did it burn for everyone?
Or was it just my turn again?
Did it hurt for everyone?
Or was I just alone again?

All I want is to go home.
Track Name: Empty
"Tonight is a very dark night. What might happen tonight could change Equestria. I feel a new, dark presence, so all of you must be on guard. Please, wake up and don your Elements of Harmony. You must converge at the Library with due haste. Twilight is already heading there with hers."

The stories she scrawled out were too planned out and uninteresting.
Why must I still believe that even you would still be listening?
A damaged bridge between the rules she'd make and those I'd call friends
My pen is but a dulling sword whose sharpened ink would never mend.

I'm sorry
I didn't mean to fly away
I'm sorry
I've lost myself today

I gave it all to something out there that I can't remember
I gave my pride to someone and I watched it burn to embers

Was it something that I said?
An empty room, an empty bed
This library is just a shadow of what it used to be.

What once was hope when all these Elements still stood beside me
Now helpless idling, these friends play off cacophonously
Compare the products and the means will always come out to one
This game is zero-sum, I'm still to blame for all I've become

I'm sorry
I didn't mean to fly away
I'm sorry
I've lost myself today

I chased maturity so long that I've learned to surrender
I gave my mind to someone and I watched it burn to embers

Was it something that I said?
An empty room, an empty bed
This library is just a shadow of what it used to be.

And all it lost was…

I've chased my destiny so long that I've learned to surrender.
My friends now facing me afraid I'll turn our world to embers.

Was it something that I said?
These Elements are all but dead
This Harmony is just a shadow of what it used to be.

Was it something that I said?
An empty room, an empty head
This library is everything I've lost inside of me

And I've grown…

...empty.



---I'm sorry.
---Take off your elements….
---...you won't need them anymore.

Somebody told me of a
Silly little thing called destiny
Go unchecked, I'll go blind
Finding how it got the best--
...Forgive me.
Track Name: Silence


There once was a unicorn named Twilight Sparkle.
She was very smart, studious and
always worked hard to make her friends happy.

One day, Twilight worked very hard helping her friends
and was given the title of Princess, a palace in Canterlot
and even an illustrious pair of wings!

Twilight was honoured to receive these gifts,
but she was worried about how she would manage to keep
an entire country happy, let alone her friends!

Reluctantly, she declined the new roll
and decided to stay with her friends in Ponyville.

The radiant Princess Celestia understood her feelings
but told Twilight that her role needed her and that
growing up isn't always the easiest thing to do!

Twilight Sparkle listened to Princess Celestia
and moved on to Canterlot to become
Equestria's new Princess!

---I'm not cut out for this.

After working diligently for a few weeks,
Twilight noticed that the locals weren't
happy with the new changes.

Feeling sad, Twilight Sparkle wished she could
be with her friends again and leave her new role
of Princess behind.

Princess Celestia saw this behaviour and
wanted the best for her citizens and her
faithful student.

Knowing that Twilight would eventually forgive her,
The best course of action would be to
cut her off completely from meeting her friends.

With her old obligations gone, Twilight would
fall back into her princess work, without distraction.

---I just wanted to make you happy.

Twilight was upset at the Princess Celestia's decision
But continued to prove she was the most studious pony
in all of Equestria.

Whenever she heard of any negative response
Princess Twilight met with it swiftly and adamantly.
She was going to make her mentor happy.

However, not all the other ponies liked
the new Princess's way of handling situations.
They were still upset at Twilight.

Upset at the turnout, Twilight vowed to Celestia
that she would never sway from being the leader
she was destined to be.

---I'll show her. I don't need anyone. I'll be the best, no matter what.

One cold night, Twilight had a terrible feeling
that kept her lying awake. She decided to go back to Ponyville
to check it out.

Upon reaching her old library,
she was met with empty bookshelves.

“We… thought you knew…”
Said her friend, Rarity.
Twilight turned around to see all her old friends
wearing The Elements of Harmony.

Twilight was disheartened to learn that her friends were
wearing the Elements in protection,
in case Twilight was to attack them.

“I'm sorry,” cried Twilight Sparkle.
“You're going to want to look away.”

“...”

After losing her pride, motivation, will, and everything she loved…
She was damaged.

“...forgive me…”

After losing her last few friends,
Twilight transformed into a wicked black mare...

Silent Dusk.
Track Name: Dusk
---it was beautiful and I just wanted to share it with everyone
---I am nothing without you
---I am nothing but your student

She wore her crown with borrowed pride
We shed some tears and raised her high
But now we've left no difference
That simple thought tore down her mind
Some wings were never meant to fly
We watched it break her innocence

Hold your breath and tame the crowd
When even silence grows too loud.

She didn't talk
She only walked away from everything
Doesn't matter if she won't sing.
She barely cried
She only passed us by, muted as the sky.
A silent dusk will fall tonight.
This Silent Dusk we brought to life.

The dust had settled from her cry
Unrecognisable disguise
This broken nightmare now came true
Rainbow Dash, a sight to see.
Crying, “Why'd you take her away from me?”
Her loyalty must have fell through

So strong and brash-- on the ground.
Our Twilight's nowhere to be found…

She didn't talk
She only walked away from everything
Doesn't matter if she won't sing.
She barely cried
She only passed us by, muted as the sky.
A silent dusk will fall tonight.
This Silent Dusk we brought to life.

She didn't talk
She only walked away from everything
Doesn't matter if she won't sing.
She barely cried
She only passed us by, muted as the sky.
A silent dusk will fall tonight.
This Silent Dusk we brought to life.

She's all blackened!
CUT THE ACTIN'!!
COME ON BACK!!
SHE'S NOT REACTING!!

With blackened flesh and violent eyes
A sharpened horn electrified
She lost that girl we used to know
A beam of light out in the cold
We watched her violet turn to gold
The cosmos channeled through her glow

Give it your all one final time.
She'll reach on up and crack the sky.

She didn't talk
She only walked away from everything
Doesn't matter if she won't sing.
She barely cried
She only passed us by, muted as the sky.
A silent dusk will fall tonight.

She moved the sun
She burnt the stars out from the sky, but it's okay
It doesn't matter anyway
These songs will end
We'll lose our friend to something we don't understand
It's not our fault to comprehend
It's not your fault this is the end.

It's not your fault.

Did you hear the words they say?
Do they matter anyway?
Distractions of your innocence.
Now it's time to end the show
Show your teacher all you've grown
Raise the sun like you know
Now bring it home.
Track Name: One Last Time
Do you know just how this is?
Do you know who she's become?
I don't know anything
On how to stop this…
Looking back as the sun comes down...
The stars are burning out…

This is how it ends.

“If there's anyone that needs a hug right now…
...it's her.

...Twilight…?

This is what loss feels like.

You aren't going to enjoy it.
No one ever does.
You might fall back onto hopelessness.
You might just start over.
But that's how it works.
You move on.

We've all been granted unexpected circumstances…
And we've all experienced tragedies disguised as blessings..
Even as the world feels like it's coming to an end.

You can still move on.
Even if you brought it upon yourself.
You can still go home.
Try again tomorrow.

In this silent hour, nothing has brought any of us closer.
And for that, I thank you.
You could move the heavens in attempt to rewrite the past
But you could never rewrite how we feel about you..
You changed my life, in a few bad ways, but there were more ways in good!
But all I could say is that I wouldn't be here right now without you.

None of us would.

You might not have felt you had free will.
You might not have felt you had a choice.
But nothing could change the impact you had on our—

…my life.


...Twilight?


...I don't even know if you can hear us anymore.

I'm not telling you what to do, actually quite the opposite.
If it isn't obvious, you're completely in control.
We're all at the mercy of your might at this point.
Nothing we say or do will change fate if you don't will it.

And that's alright.

I can't promise you that I would understand.
I can't promise you that I would be able to help.
But I will listen.
It might not feel like much, but it's all I can do.

Just maybe…
...maybe it's enough.

…If this is really what you want, then I am in no position to stop you...
But if this is really the end, then I'm not sorry.
If this is really the last time we'll ever meet again, then I'll remember who you are.
I'm happy that I've had a chance to meet you.
I'm happy that I've gotten a chance to know you.



I'm happy…

…to call you…

…my friend."
Track Name: Destiny
All it took was a single tear and the dark black shell cracked open.
This crack was a new root. A seed where many others would soon follow.
This crack which stemmed from the heart.

“I'm so sorry!”
Twilight cried as she emerged from the hollow Dusk.
“I never want to feel like that again, I'm so sorry if I hurt you.”

The apologies weren't necessary for her friends.
They were more than happy to just have Twilight back.
They were more than happy to see her for one last time.

Twilight looked up towards the sun and noticed.
It was still falling.
“But everything's okay now! We got Twilight back!” Pinkie jubilantly replied.

Twilight had one more thing to do.
“Girls…”
Everyone's ears perked up in anticipation.

“I need you to help me take a letter.”

The friends were eager to help Twilight with her request.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Princess Celestia,

When you told me that I was going to become a princess, I didn't know what to think.

At first, I was excited-- after all, it was something completely new that I couldn't wait to try.
However, the real reason why I didn't want to accept your offer…
...was because I was afraid.

I've known you nearly all my life.
I've always watched in awe at all the complex and intricate spells
You could cast with the greatest of poise.

You were perfect, and I knew that no matter how hard I tried,
I could never be as faultless as you are.

I was afraid that I would anger someone.
I was afraid that I wouldn't make you happy.
I was afraid that I would make a mistake.

Here with my friends...

...I've finally overcome that fear.

Everyone makes mistakes.
They're just an inherent part of life itself, so why should any of us worry?

Ultimately, character isn't defined by the mistakes that you made…
...but what you do to mend them.

So now, I'm going to fix mine.

It has been years since you've taken me in as your personal student, and in that time I've learned so much.
Even now, I'm still thankful for all that you have given me.

The events that led to this point in time will remain priceless, and I truly have been blessed to be surrounded by friends whose bond will remain eternal.

From the bottom of my heart, I can't thank you enough for this opportunity.

I can't tell you how much it meant to me.

Your faithful student,
Twilight Sparkle

---She was already tearing up when she passed the letter on.

“Are you sure you want to do this, Twi?” Applejack responded.

Twilight simply just nodded her head and smiled.

From there, the six friends gathered for what felt like the longest embrace.

Almost as if it was for the very last time.

Because it was.

Track Name: Fragile Wings
Somebody told me of a
Silly little thing called Destiny
Now that's checked, we're all blind
Finding how it showed the best of me.

The moon and the sun
The stars in the sky
Alone on the top
Glad that wasn't mine to try
I've made it this far
With all my good friends
So, let's not imagine this
As the end.

Do you know just how it is?
Do you see just who I am?
I don't know anything
That there is left to do
Looking back at all they gave
More than the world we saved
Don't look at me like that
or I'll start crying too.


I'll meet you in the sun.


I'll meet you when I earn my fragile wings.

Rainbow Dash:
“...so now what?”

Fluttershy:
“I don't know…”

Applejack:
“...do y'think we did a good job with the library?”

Rarity:
“Oh, absolutely! I'm sure she would've loved it…”

Pinkie Pie:
“Y'know… heh, she'd probably just throw all the books on the floor and reshelf them because we didn't organise them her fancy way!”

Applejack:
“Heh, that Twi'... Always had to have everything in line… remember when she went crazy all because she didn't get that letter written to the Princess?”

Rarity:
“Was that the time when she caused half the town to start fighting over that silly doll?”

Fluttershy:
“Oh yes… that got a bit loud…

Rainbow Dash:
“NO, NO! THAT'S NOTHING! REMEMBER WHEN SHE CAUSED THAT HUUUGE SNOWBALL DURING WINTER WRAP UP?!”

Pinkie Pie:
“Hahaha~ALL because she used her MAGIC! Ahaha~ Oh! What about the time where Twilight got ALL those tickets to the Gala and didn't want any of us to be sad, so she gave them back so that none of us would be left out?”

Fluttershy:
“...Oh! Um… what about the very first time we met? After Nightmare Moon?”

Rainbow Dash:
“Yeah! I thought she was a SPY or something but Twilight STILL trusted all of us! Even without knowing any of us more than a few hours!”

Applejack:
“When she was separated-- facin' Nightmare Moon all alone like that? That was pretty brave of her.”

Rarity:
“That little speech she gave to Nightmare Moon was marvelous, to say the least! How'd that go again?”

Rainbow Dash:
“When those Elements are ignited by the spark that resides in the heart of us all, it creates the sixth element... man, Twilight was sure a sappy girl.”

Applejack:
“Oh boy, heheh… we better go make sure Spike's okay up there…”

Fluttershy:
“Um… I thought Spike was at the castle with Celestia…?”
