Overview of the Crystal Empire's train station.
Business as usual for the train station.
The Mane Six arriving at the Crystal Empire.
"...but I'm a little nervous too."
It's like you wanna jump up and down and yell "YAY ME!!"
"But you also wanna curl up in a teeny-tiny ball..."
"...and hide at the same time!"
"I'm there almost every day."
"You've got no reason to fret, Twi. Everything's gonna be just..."
Look at all that dreadful dirt down there.
Did you see all that dreadful dirt?!
"Haven't really gotten accustomed to these yet, either."
Curses! I did it perfectly at my coronation.
...But at that time, I was gliding on the narrativium energies of the song number.
"You are a princess now, Twilight.Embrace it!" (It's great to have a very best Alicorn friend.)
"If I had a crown like that I'd never take it off"
I'd go to Nightmare Night as a princess or something.
I can completely believe that.
The Crystal Empire throne room.
Wow, I'm not used to this.
"Her highness, Princess Twilight Sparkle!"
"I haven't seen you since the coronation!"
"We have so much to discuss. But it can wait until tomorrow."
"You all look tired from your journey. Now, off to bed, all of you."
Twilight, getting out her crown.
Princess or just Twilight?
"What's wrong, Twilight?"
"I don't know, Spike. I'm just... worried, I guess."
"What if now that I'm a princess, Celestia expects me to lead a kingdom of my own?" You do now, Twi!
Then your reign shall be glorious and full of lectures!
I'm serious! Just because I'm a bad-flank archmage who was able to complete the Apotheosis Spell, that doesn't make me a good leader!
There's a difference between a superhero squad leader and a peacetime political leader!
"Aw, sure you will, Twilight."
"Now come on, you should get some shut-eye."
How do Pegasi sleep with these wings getting in the way?!
A night guard with a torch...horn?
Serious Sparkle sleeping soundly.
Silly Spike snoring sincerely.
'Tis a unknown unicorn for now (spoiler alert!
) taking Twilight's crown.
Careful not to wake the egghead princess.
Her pocket sparkles! Or... my crown! AHHHH!
Twilight's friends are waking up.
Girls, prepare to battle!
Never assume that a unicorn can't move faster than her running speed!
Nowhere to run now... but why is she still running?
Sunset's her name, she's stealing the crown!
Huh? Who's following me?!
And that's my cue. Winner exit, stage right.
See you later or never, whichever comes last.
Everypony just casually went back to bed and waited untill morning.
I can't believe Sunset Shimmer stole the crown.
Lemme show you the mirror...
"This is no ordinary mirror. It is a gateway to another world."
"A gateway that opens once every thirty moons."
AJ disgusted by it.( Huh, would of thought that Rarity would have)
Worried looks on everypony.
You mean "What can Twilight do?"
You must get your crown back
Go in the mirror, Twilight Sparkle.
She really doesn't want to
Go in that weird mirror, Twilight Sparkle.
Twilight is staring at it!
At least I think she must...
"You do realize that's not a real word, right?"
Only Twilight can go. (Twilight is SHOCKED)
WHAT?! What kind of princess are you anyway?
Let me and my friends go!
"Time is of the essence."
"On the third day, when the moon reaches its peak in the night sky, the gateway will close."
"And once it does, it will be another thirty moons before you will be able to use it to return."
One would wonder where the other half went.
Spike looks like he's gonna sneeze.
Whoa! I didn't know she could stretch like that..
Spike joins Twilight in the vortex.
Warped Twilight and Spike.
Aww Spike is even cuter as a puppy, than a dragon!
"I... think so. But I have no idea what you are!"
Aaaaaaaaah! I'm a human!!!!
That was a bit of an over-reaction.
Aaaaah, get these hands away from me!
These things on my arm that aren't hooves have bendy parts?
Okay okay, deep breath Twilight.
What does the rest of me look like?!
"Um... like you, only not you. Your muzzle's really small".
What happened to my muzzle!?
Are you gonna scream again?
This must be the portal back
Twi looking at her "school"
Twilight? Aren't you supposed to walk on two legs like a normal human?
Twi looking at a student and his dog.
Spike was killed by something, SMB style.
That girl didn't ran on all four and her dog certainly didn't talk.
Nothing happened, let's move along.
This school had only 5 windows moments ago.
Spike the Dog just sitting there
Let's magically open the door...
We've all done this at least once.
Twi, your forehead is bare
"My magic! It isn't working!"
"Makes sense. You don't exactly have your horn."
"We really need to find you a mirror."
Spike and Twi have a lookie look at the school and spot a safety violation (door on public buildings are supposed to open out).
My, people come and go so quickly around here.
Well this is embarrassing.
Twi, you need to learn to have some hand-eye coordination.
Haven't seen you around these parts.
These people don't look familiar
It's difficult to stand up when you're a pony...
Hey! What are you looking!?
Twi is watching for her prey.
Watching Cheerilee using her hands
That almost hit her, Scootaloo.
Apple Bloom is really cute..
AWKWARD!!! (and unsanitary: that bathroom sink has no soap dispenser!)
A cute, familiarly shy girl is being scolded and bullied by this angsty red-head teen.
That... looks awkward in more ways than one.
Slipping down the locker unable to defend herself.
Twilight doesn't approve of this.
Spike really doesn't approve of this.
"It's no wonder your best friends are all stray animals!"
Intense staredown... everybody run!
Oh please. Why are people always doing that?!
"Wake up and embrace your fate!"
He has every right to be terrified.
It's déjà vu all over again.
What are you talking about?
"I don't speak English. What are you talking about?"
"Animal shelter needs more volunteers"
Jeez, universe- hitting a little harshly, aren't we?
Spike seems to enjoy his petting a little too much... just saying.
"Technically, I guess she and Vice Principal Luna do make the rules."
"Where is she now?" "Probably in her office."
"Third door on your left".
At first I was only going to take the bunny, but then the kitty looked lonely, then the bird got cute...
...uh, Twilight... she's not royalty in this world, so...
"How may I help you?" (See, I told you she isn't interested in royalty.)
Principal Celestia at her desk.
"Like the Grand Galloping Gala!"
"The Grand Galloping Gala?"
Celestia was actually snooping into Luna's office! (look at the symbol above the door)
Upon seeing the new girl acting weird, the nerd in this photo was forever scarred and would never talk to girls ever again.
"Looks like if I want my crown back..."
"...I'll have to become Princess of the Canterlot High Fall Formal."
"So that's what I'm gonna do!"
"And how exactly do you plan on doing that?" "I have no idea!"
Let's hope that's a veggie burger.(Makes sense - Fluttershy took the same)
Fluttershy drops the bowl.
What would the Eco Kids say about using so many napkins?
Granny Smith, the lunch lady.
Normal day in the lunchroom.
The Techies.(Someone here looks like Featherweight..)
"Why is everypony--" *SMACK!*
"--I mean, everybody separated this way?"
"How do you eat as one of these... hairless apes?!"
Uh, Twilight? Aren't you supposed to use your hands like a normal human?
What are you talking about? I never picked this apple up with my mouth.
Sheepish grins: the only way to guarantee no suspicion falls on you.
Nice job with the decorating.
Its raining colored paper.
Those are real balloons on her dress?
"How did she know my name?"
In Equestria Girls, balloons blow up Pinkie!
"No. Not unless that's something you can do here…"
Happy Pinkie... maybe a little too happy.
"I thought you didn't look familiar".
"Though, now that I'm really looking at you..."
"Do you have a twin sister who lives in the city?" (Foreshadowing Friendship Games
, huh Pinkie?)
"Has a pet dog named Spike that looks just like that one?"
That's not how you hold a pen...
Pinkie Pie shocked about Twilight's Penmanship
Whoo-wee! We really need some air conditioning in here.
Is that Big McIntosh? "Ee-yup."
That's some delicious cider.
"Here comes the backstabbing..."
Pinkie Pie riding on a... balloon?
Twi is shocked and appaled!
"That one's tryin' to hide a secret, but I am totally on to her."
Dang! Has someone got actual nails for nails?
Shortly after this, Applejack broke Sunset Shimmer's back... using her head!
"Not anymore!" (Apparently, that says "Twilight Sparkle". Yeah, not buying it.)
What? Someone dares oppose my rule?
Sunset Shimmer doesn't approve.
She could be the new stare master!
