Another beautiful day at the cottage.
I should smile because I broke my leg.
No creature is too small in need of Fluttershy
"Always happy to help little woodland creatures."
Ooh, it was no problem at all.
Something's wrong with Angel
Angel, running to hint something to Fluttershy.
Ooh, Angel you can be so cute sometimes.
Hmm, maybe, that doesn't sound right.
The door is over there, use it.
The clock, near Fluttershy's cottage.
Both arms are the same length.
Fluttershy's cutest expression.
Fluttershy realizing she's late for the brunch
Pacing around her cottage.
She's still not so sure whether she should go or not.
But, I can't disappoint Twilight.
She still looks so worried.
Angel, ready to have the house to himself.
Finally, some peace and alone time.
Princess Celestia's guards.
You think you're cool enough?
Aren't I a totally silly pony?
*boop* Give me muffin please?
Apparently, Rainbow thought impersonating Derpy would get a rise out of the guards. It didn't.
Rainbow fails to amuse the guards
is there to confirm who she is!
Princess Celestia, is right over there.
Who needs an oven, when you have the Spike
Mr.Cake with a delightful smile on his face.
Here are some more desserts.
Me nervous? Don't be silly.
Twilight hoping everything goes well
Twitchy Twilight is twitchy.
"Wow, Twilight, I thought I was the only one who got nervous at social gatherings."
Goodness Twilight, the Princess seems more calm than you do.
After all, what I wouldn't do for a good friend.
Fluttershy is all smiles.
Twilight and Fluttershy, watching Rarity.
Confused about what to eat first.
A sandwich.....WITH MEAT! D:
Which food should she eat first, the pie or the lettuce or what is it?!
Fluttershy is all smiles.
Cherry Berry and Golden Harvest.
Pinkie, hoping over a table.
I love pie so much, no wonder it's in my name.
Who loves pie? Pinkie Pie!
She also loves chocolate...
Pinkie's face covered in chocolate.
Nom, nopony loves chocolate like Pinkie Pie.
About to bite into the cupcake.
...and stealing royal cupcakes?
Oh, it's ok, The Princess doesn't mind.
But, Celestia knows Pinkie well enough.
I do believe I feel my tail being dragged.
Eating and drinking in a beautiful princess way.
"Empty teacup at four o' clock!"
If you need anything, just ask.
Pouring her another cup of tea.
Making sure the Princess always has a drink
You ponies can such silly ponies sometimes.
Fluttershy and Celestia talking about animals
Ooh yes, I enjoy spending time with my woodland creatures.
You never told me how cute she was, Twilight.
Umm, worried about Celestia's pet.
Philomena in her royal cage
Surprised looks from both Applejack and Rarity.
Ooh, magic seems so useful.
Twilight is shocked at the brunch ending so early
Celestia thanks everyone for coming and allowing her to know them better
Celestia takes her leave.
Minuette and Cherry Berry,taking a nap?
Fluttershy notices Princess Celestia's pet bird.
Ponies leave Sugarcube Corner.
A hyper Pinkie kicks another pony in the face
"Nopony move, and the dress won't be hurt!"
While Applejack leaves with the jackpot
At least nothing bad happened
Spoke too soon there, Twilight
Fluttershy decides to look after Philomena
Fluttershy wishes she could remedy the phoenix "problem" quickly.
Too bad Philomena doesn't look too good.
"Oh my. We'd better get you to bed right away."
Better get your temperature.
Here, maybe this blanket will warm you down.
She's sitting like a person!
Try some, I'm sure it'll help.
You don't want soup either?
Ooh, what am I supposed to do to help you?
Philomena, you're a silly bird.
My favorite singing partner...
..Ready for another song?
Let's sing the My Little Pony Theme
Fluttershy tries to get Philomena to sing to feel better
That face doesn't seem very pleasant.
Heh. . .um. . . ok then. .
So much for aromatherapy...
Oh dear, someone's at the door...
What in Equestria, is Princess Celestia's pet doing here?
I just wanted to help her out.
..Just ask Princess Celestia first?
Quick, hide her in the basket!
Help, my tail is possessed!
The guards ask about Philomena
Nothing out of the ordinary here.
Covering up Philomena's coughing with their own fake illnesses
The guards aren't sure what to think
Twilight has a puppy face too!
Twilight gets rid of the guards
You're really freaking out, aren't you Twilight?
Fluttershy in the Everfree Forest.
She wouldn't do that, Twilight.
She won't even take her medicine.
Insert medicine here please.
Behold, The Cone of Shame...
Look at me! I'm a metal detector!
You don't like it, well too bad.
I don't think I like the look on her face right now...
Philomena finally escapes
Fluttershy chases her out the door.
Twilight and Fluttershy running to find the bird.
The Royal Guards, asking ponies around.
The guards are showing posters of Philomena now
Handy disguise you've got there...
Are you thinking the same thing?
Vandalising the missing posters so nobody will find her
Applejack, Pinkie and Rarity.
"Philomena, come down from there! You'll hurt yourself!"
Philomena is completely bald...
...and died for being bald...
Is there such disease of dying for being bald?
Fluttershy rushes in to save her.
Fluttershy holding the charred remains of Philomena
Tears making their way to her eyes.
Dirty hooves! Dirty, dirty hooves!
Celestia finds her bird's ashes
Bowing to Princess Celestia.
Poor Fluttershy feels awful for taking the bird and not being able to nurse her back to health, and now has to deal with Celestia?
Fluttershy turns around to face Celestia.
This is all my fault, Princess..
..Fluttershy didn't know better..
..Please, let me handle this.
..She'll go easier on me, you know.
Wait, what were we talking about again?
Listen Fluttershy, I'm not mad.
A sad Fluttershy apologizes to the princess...
Taking a look at the ashes.
Celestia telling Philomena to stop fooling around.
Philomena in all of her glory
You were just playing around with me.
Flying beautifully in the sky.
Celestia explains to Fluttershy that Philomena is a phoenix and that every so often she has to pluck all her feathers out to refresh herself
Like the legend of the phoenix, all ends with beginnings
Hearing she needs to apologize.
Philomena apologizes to Fluttershy for making her so worried
Rarity, that bird is more beautiful than I am?
So glad everything is good again..
Resting on Celestia's back.
So thanks her with a present!
A plotting Rainbow has another thing for Philomena to do.
Oh forget it, let us laugh!
All's well that ends well.
