Twilight re-reading the Elements of Harmony.
Twilight, as seen for the first time.
Minuette, Twinkleshine and Lemon Hearts, ask Twilight to join them.
Sorry girls...I can't.
Trying to come up with an good excuse.
Running as fast as she can.
Get out of my way!
Running past Lyra Heartstrings.
Twilight: "There you are. Quick, find me that old copy of Predictions and Prophecies."
Why is this book on the ground?
I'll just zap it away.
"No, no, no..."
"No, no, no!"
Ah! Here it is
Flipping through pages.
"'Elements of Harmony... see: Mare in the Moon'?"
Twilight reads the myth of the Mare in the Moon.
"Spike! Do you know what this means?"
"Take a note please, to the Princess."
"... We are on the precipice of disaster!"
"Ugh, that something really bad is about to happen!"
"For you see, the mythical Mare in the Moon is in fact Nightmare Moon..."
"Nightmare Moon! And she's about to return and bring with her eternal night!"
"Something must be done to make sure this terrible prophecy does not come true. I await your quick response. Your faithful student, Twilight Sparkle."
"Great! Send it."
"That's just it, Spike!"
"It's imperative that the Princess is told right away!"
"The Princess trusts me completely."
"In all the years she's been my mentor she's never once doubted me."
"See? I knew she would want to take immediate action."
" ...but you simply must stop reading those dusty old books!"
"My dear Twilight, there is more to a young pony's life than studying."
"So, I'm sending you to supervise the preparations for the Summer Sun Celebration in this year's location... Ponyville."
"And I have an even more essential task for you to complete:"
"make some friends!"
"Yes, yes it does. You know why? Because I'm right!"
"I'll check on the preparations as fast as I can, then get to the library to find some proof of Nightmare Moon's return."
"Then... when will you make friends, like the Princess said?"
"She said to check on preparations. I am her student, and I'll do my royal duty, but the fate of Equestria does not rest on me making friends."
Big MacIntosh's first appearance.
"Thank you, sirs."
Spike: "Maybe the ponies in Ponyville have interesting things to talk about."
"Come on, Twilight, just try!"
Well okay then.
"Well, that was interesting all right."
Number one, Banquet Preparations: Sweet Apple Acres!
Let's get this over with
My name is Twilight Sparkle, and...
Well, howdy-do Miss Twilight, pleasure making your acquaintance.
"Frieeeeeeeeeeendss? Actuallyyyyyyyyyyyy, I..."
Twilight you can stopping shaking your hoof now.
Spike,stopping Twilight's shaky hoof.
What are you laughing at?
Well, I'm here to supervise preparations for the Summer Sun Celebration. And you're in charge of the food?
We sure are, would you care to sample some?
Applejack's large family overwhelms poor, introverted Twilight.
Why don't I introduce you to the Apple Family?
Thanks, but I really need to hurry...
This here's Apple Fritter
Apple Strudel, Apple Tart, Baked Apples, Apple Brioche, Apple Cinnamon Crisp....
Applejack, force feeding Twilight an apple (like any good friend should).
Eat it, ya'll love it.
I'd say you're already part of the family!
Hehe...I see that you have the food under control, I'll be on my way...
Sad, disappointed Apple Bloom.
Now,we're all sad.
"Ughh, I ate too much pie."
Standing there all innocently.
Twilight's first contact with Rainbow Dash.
Rainbow Crash landing.
Twilight dazed in the mud.
Twilight all wet from Rainbow's rain cloud.
Twilight all annoyed.
Twilight's messed up mane from the Rain-blow dry.
Wait, you're Rainbow Dash?
The most awesome flier ever.
I'm checking on the preparations.
You're going to join the Wonderbolts?
I bet, they wouldn't want to accept somepony like you.
Is that a challenge?
Ha haa, you're funny.
She's so awesome.
Heheh... so fluffy...
Admiring the decorations that Rarity has put up.
I think someone's hooked.
"How're my spines? Are they straight?"
"Just a moment, please! I'm 'in the zone', as it were."
Twilight's poofy mane
I'm just here to check on the decor.
Come on, lets get you spruced up.
Statue of Liber-Twi.
The work of Claude Monet.
Kind of a sporty look.
Annoyed sailboat queen.
Sporting a powdered wig look.
Yet another sporty look.
"I've... been sent..."
Rarity torturing Twilight.
Um... Where are Twi's eyes?
"Oh, I am so envious!"
"Oh, we're gonna be the best of friends."
"Emeralds?! What was I thinking?"
"Let me get you some rubies!"
"Quick, let's get the heck outta here before she dyes my coat a new color!"
What's over there?
Hello up there
Twilight pointing at Fluttershy
"Didn't quite catch that."
...... well this is an awkward moment...
...... okaaaay... nice talking with you...
*Bump!* Twilight goes flying.
"Well, well, well!"
She opens up to Spike, much to Twilight's dismay.
This is gonna be a long walk.
... and that's the story of my life!
I got more to tell
I arrived at my residence
No I do-OOF!
Making up an excuse to get away from Fluttershy.
I should tuck him in...
That's all right, but you can go now
Twilight derping in the darkness
Twilight sees a bunch of ponies.
Twilight, seems unsure about a hyper Pinkie.
What kind of party would this be
...if it was quiet?
School in one word: BOOOORRR-IIIIINNGG!
Pinkie, is one talkative pony.
I just had to throw a party, ya know?
I saw you before,and you had no friends.
Twilight is tired...
Twilight gets a drink
Confound this social interaction, it drives me to drink
"And now you have lots and lots of friends!"
Mmf... Did you just say... FRIENDS?
Big, red, puffy cheeks!
Twilight with red puffy cheeks.
Twilight, much like her flaming self in Feeling Pinkie Keen.
Get away from me!
Spike, just leave Twi alone, she's not feeling so good.
I mean really, is it just a old pony's tale?
Ugh, so much noise.
"Ugh, here I thought..."
"...I'd have time to learn about the Elements of Harmony."
"But, silly me."
"All this ridiculous friend-making..."
"...has kept me from it!"
Twilight doesn't exactly feel well after the pegasus flight-cart thing and the hot-sauce incident. *Oolp!*
And now, she might as well throw up right now, her facial expression says it all.
An ominous sign...
Twilight in the vision of the moon in her eyes.
Twilight looks pensive when the Summer Sun Celebration begins.
Twilight knows what will happen.
I can't watch.
Ugh, now I'm gonna throw up for real. Spike, get off me.
I'm not afraid of you!
Oh no! Nightmare Moon!
"Where's she going?"
Twilight causing ruckus while searching for answers.
"How can I stop Night Mare Moon?!"
Twilight never saw it coming.
"And what are the Elements of Harmony?"
"And how did you know about Nightmare Moon?"
Did you kiss Spike?
Applejack shows up and pulls back Rainbow Dash, telling her to "simmer down".
The Main 6 regroup.
"I read all about the prediction of Nightmare Moon."
"Are the only things that can stop her."
"I don't even know what they do!"
Twilight pushes Pinkie away.
"How did you find that?!"
"It was under E!"
"There are six Elements of Harmony, but only five are known: Kindness, Laughter, Generosity, Honesty and Loyalty. The sixth is a complete mystery."
"It is said, the last known location of the five elements was in the ancient castle of the royal pony sisters."
"It is located in what is now--"
Ponies vs. the Everfree Forest
Well, what are you waiting for?
Look! I can stand on two legs!
"Not so fast."
"I appreciate the offer."
"I'd really rather do this on my own."
Did Applejack just call me friend?
Twilight and Pinkie Pie.
Twilight and the others walk through the forest.
Applejack tells her to "quit it".
Twilight and Applejack begin to fall.
The ponies start to fall.
Twilight falling near the edge.
Keep holding on.
"Hold on! I'm a-coming!"
"ARE YOU CRAZY??!"
Twilight, trusts Applejack.
Twilight's leap of faith.
What? I'm not falling!
Twilight thinking- " I could care less Rainbow."
"And I'm very grateful."
"We gotta get past him!"
Never backing down.
Charging against the manticore
Twilight, with a confused look.
The friends are astonished to hear Fluttershy saying, "Shh... it's okay."
"How did you know about the thorn?"
Twilight thinking of Fluttershy's words.
Something scary is bound to happen.
Twilight isn't the only one screaming her head off.
"Pinkie what are you doing? Run!"
'"Tell me she's not..."
How did Pinkie get up there?
Pinkie did that!?
I'm only laughing because of peer pressure.
Twilight enjoying a good laugh.
Their path is impeded by a river.
Ok, the map says... What the Heck River
"I was just sitting here, minding my own business, when this tacky little cloud of purple smoke just whisked past me and tore half of my beloved mustache clean off, and now I look simply horrid."
The ponies, all soggy and wet
*Slice* So I'm thinking... "SHE KILLED HIM?!"
Oh, never mind. She killed her tail.
"Oh. It's fine, my dear. Short tails are in this season. Besides, it'll grow back."
Twilight thinking of Rarity's action.
Rainbow Dash breaking Twilight's train of thought.
Progress has been made.
"We can cross now! Lets go!"
"We're almost there!"
A near fall.
"What is it with you and falling off cliffs today?"
Twilight thinking of Rainbow Dash's loyal act.
Look closely at the elements on the stone rack. 1 2 3 4 5 6
"No! Only 5 elements!" (Look at the previous picture!)
Pinkie: There are 6 elements on the stone rack. Go back to kindergarten, Twilight.
"I'm not sure but I have an idea."
"Stand back! I don't know what will happen."
Doing the magics.
Twilight Sparkle using her trademark scream.
Twilight Sparkle laying her eyes on Night Mare Moon.
You don't scare me Night Mare.
Twilight Sparkle never backs down.
Now you see me...
Now you don't.
Twilight feeling a minor side affect of teleportation.
"Just one spark, c'mon!"
But not the spark Twilight expected.
Did it work?
Yeah it did work!
"Where's the six element!" Duh, on the stone rack.
This can't be happening.
When all hope seem lost.
Until she hears the elements.
"You think you can destroy the elements of harmony!"
"Because the spirits of the elements of harmony..."
"Are right here!"
"But it did."
"A different kind of spark!"
Twilight with tears in her eyes.
Oh, there's the sixth element.
You can't stop me!
Revealing the sixth Element.
Twilight's crown, the Element of Magic.
Time to defeat Nightmare Moon.
Friendship is Magical.
Twilight's Big Crown Thingy.
Princess, I missed you.
"You told me it was all an old pony tale."
Twilight getting a big hug from Spike.
Twilight's friends are glad, she's staying.
Thank you Princess!
Giving Twilight a new task.
Twilight listening to Princess Celestia.
Twilight with her, best friends forever!
Twilight helping Applejack with the farm.
I'm keeping my eye on you Spike.
The most delicious apple ever...
...that Twilight never had!
Twilight, doesn't look so amused.
Twilight's stomach growling
Oh my, a letter from Princess Celestia?
The Grand Galloping Gala.
Twilight hopping with excitement alongside Applejack
Hungry Twilight leaves.
Pinkie Pie: "And then I said, 'Oatmeal? Are you craz-' Oh."
That waiter has some waiting skills
Well, she is a horse. It's perfectly natural for her to eat flowers.
Applejack has the best reason and Fluttershy was the most polite about it...and Rarity is such a drama queen...
I CAN'T DECIDE!
An unimpressed Twilight Sparkle.
I had to say.
"Twilight, it's raining."
Twilight and Rarity. "We are the best of friends are we not?"
Twilight looks lovely in that dress.
Twilight admiring herself in Rarity's prototype gala dress she made for her, so Rarity can try to get the ticket.
Twilight Sparkle finally figures out Rarity's intentions when Rarity mentions the Gala.
"I'm stuck and she is not even using her magic."
"Should I eat this and lose my integrity or keep my integrity and stay hungry?"
Twilight refuses and thus stays hungry
I'm going to have to ask you to leave
Here we go
I'm so not enjoying this.
Twilight Sparkle a master of disguise.
Twilight blushing at Spike's compliment.
Getting ready to perform a new spell.
Performing a new spell.
"Where is this unicorn?"
"I don't want anyone thinking I'm a showoff."
'You should challenge her Twilight.'
"I'm just your run of the mill citizen of Ponyville."
"I think I hear my laundry calling."
"Gotta go!" ZOOM...
Twilight Sparkle disturbed by Spike's pleading.
"Its exactly the same!"
Look, Spike, just have a face full of door!
Hang on. Seriously, I put a door there. Without any walls. I am SO not impressed.
Spike: Yeah, um, Twilight, what up with the door? Twilight: Grrmph.
Twilight Sparkle once again disturbed by Spike.
Both of them hear the Ursa Major (or minor).
"Is that what I think it is?"
"Whats going on?"
The five of them feeling a shockwave created by the Ursa.
Twilight's teeth gritting with fear.
SHISH! SHISH! CHIPOTLE! ZAPPP!!! (Worst onomatopoeias EVER.)
"I'm sorry! Please please don't hate me."
"I know how much you all hated Trixie's showing off."
"So you all don't mind my magic tricks?"
"That wasn't an Ursa Major."
"Because someone woke it up!"
"You don't want to know."
"Now about you two."
Another look from Twilight Sparkle that I wouldn't trust.
"I think you're right."
"Especially when you're standing up for your friends."
