I’m gonna be even stronger than you when I grow up, Dad!
Heh, I hope so, kiddo!
Sitting on a ragged chunk of cloud high above Whitetail Woods, Rainbow Dash scowled. The words, the voices—they flitted around her brain, crashing through her synapses and forcing her mind to replay the scene over and over again. With a vicious thrash of her head, she attempted to shake the thoughts away, but as soon as her eyes drifted back to the scene below her, the words just returned, louder than ever.
On the ground below, in a large clearing in the middle of the forest, dozens of construction workers milled about, setting up large tents and putting together long stages. They had been at it all day, working hard to ge

Derpy Hooves' ears folded back against her head as the creak of her house's front door erupted through them. Her wings felt like lead, hanging weakly against her sides. For the first time in ages, she actually had to climb the stairs in her house, rather than simply flying up them. Her entire body screamed for rest. It was all she could do to make it to her bedroom, where she flopped down on her bed unceremoniously, not even bothering to remove her saddle bags.

"...You do make a good point. How much would it cost?"
Pinkie's face scrunched up. "Let's see: move that there, carry the one...oh, boy! Only about ten million bits! What a deal, right?"

“I don’t wanna go!”
Tasty Delight wiggled her brown-furred leg, attempting to break free of the filly clamped around it. “Bonnie, please... you’re making a scene...”
Bon Bon looked up at her mother with pleading blue eyes. “Please don’t make me go!” she begged. “I wanna stay home with you and daddy!”
The blue-maned mare knelt down to match her daughter’s height. “Oh, Bonnie, there’s no need to worry! I promise you; kindergarten is going to be a lot of fun. See, look!” She pointed to a group of fillies a few yards away, playing and laughing. “There’s a bunch of foals here, all your age! You’re gonna get along great!”
