Transcript

  • Spike
What's wrong, Twilight?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Ugh, I've gone through every book in Ponyville, Spike, and there isn't a single mention of the mysterious chest that came from the Tree of Harmony, nor anything about keys to unlock it! But something tells me that opening it is pretty important. I hope Princess Celestia has some ideas. If the library in Canterlot doesn't have anything, I-I don't know where else to look!
  • Twilight Sparkle
My dearest Twilight, while it would be perfectly lovely to have you in Canterlot once more, I have another option in mind much closer to Ponyville.
  • Princess Celestia
As you know, the ancient castle that I once shared with Princess Luna lies mostly in ruins, deep in the Everfree Forest. But if you look carefully, you may find a book that could prove helpful to your research, hidden somewhere in what's left of the castle library.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Wow! Look at all these ancient books! It's a veritable goldmine of information! I can't believe it! Woo-hoo!
  • Spike
Whoa, whoa-whoa! Oof! Uh, heh-heh. So, uh, Twilight. Uh, ready to head home?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Are you kidding? This place is perfect!
  • Rainbow Dash
I'm not gonna move. You move.
  • Applejack
Uh-uh. There is no way I'm movin'.
  • Pinkie Pie
This is the most daring dare anypony ever dared dare another pony to dare!
  • Applejack
  • Rainbow Dash
Huh?
  • Pinkie Pie
It's exciting!
  • Parcel Post
Uh, whatcha'll doing?
  • Pinkie Pie
Rainbow Dash and Applejack are competing for the title of "Most Daring Pony"! This is the final test: the Bee Stare! Last pony to blink wins!
  • Parcel Post
... I'm gonna need my bees back.
  • Rainbow Dash
But then we'll never find out who the Most Daring Pony is!
  • Parcel Post
Eh, sorry about that.
  • Applejack
Well, what do we do now?
  • Pinkie Pie
Don't worry, ladies, I've been keeping excellent score all day! Hmm, move the decimal, carry the 2, and... Congratulations! You're tied!
  • Applejack
Tied?
  • Rainbow Dash
You can't be tied for the Most Daring Pony!
  • Pinkie Pie
I dunno! Numbers don't lie! I'd love to stay and keep keeping score, but I promised to help test the new school bell. I get to ring it all week, nonstop! And I don't even have to take turns, because no one else volunteered!
  • Rainbow Dash
Okay, no problem. We just have to come up with another daring dare.
  • Applejack
Right. I think I might have an idea of what we can do.
  • Fluttershy
Um, Rarity? Don't you think it's a little late in the day to be walking through the forest? It is... star-spider season, after all. Though, I'm sure you have a very good reason.
  • Rarity
Simply the most important reason I've ever had in my entire life!
  • Fluttershy
Oh, well then I'm happy to help. What is it?
  • Rarity
I've heard rumors that the Castle of the Two Sisters is filled with the most gorgeous of ancient tapestries in all of pony history! It pains me to think of those magnificent creations rotting away in those old ruins, totally unappreciated.
  • Fluttershy
I see...
  • Rarity
I require your help in borrowing one or two to bring back to the boutique where I can restore them. Maybe I'll even use the patterns as the inspiration for a new line!
  • Fluttershy
That does sound... very important.
  • Rarity
Yes, well, maybe not the most important thing in my entire life, but retro-ancient classical will be all the rage next season, so it's nothing to sneeze at.
  • Fluttershy
Um, are you sure you need those tapestries?
  • Rarity
But, of course. Although, I must admit these ruins are a fright. Just look at all the dirt everywhere! Ugh...
  • Fluttershy
Angel!
  • Rarity
Goodness! It's practically an artistic treasure trove of ancient good taste!
  • Fluttershy
Angel! Oh, you really shouldn't have run off like that. Ancient ruins are filled with all sorts of things that can hurt you! You could stub your toe, or, or trip on a loose stone... You have to be careful!
  • Spike
I don't think I'll need all these candles, Twilight. I was really only scared for a second.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Oh, these aren't for you, Spike. We're gonna be studying late into the night, and we're gonna need all the light we can get.
  • Spike
Oh, great.
  • Applejack
Well, here we are!
  • Rainbow Dash
Uh, what's so daring about this place? This is where we got the Elements of Harmony.
  • Applejack
When I was just a filly, Granny Smith told me of an ancient legend. When Nightmare Moon was banished, not every last bit of her dark magic went with her. Granny used to say, when night falls on the castle, that magic takes the form of... the Pony of Shadows!
  • Rainbow Dash
You mean, like a ghost?
  • Applejack
Nopony knows!
  • Rainbow Dash
Ugh.
  • Rarity
This one is perfect!
  • Fluttershy
Well, it certainly could use some restoration.
  • Rarity
Be a dear, fly up there and lift it off that hook?
  • Rarity
Maybe from below?
  • Rainbow Dash
I don't see what's so daring about an old legend. Plus, I don't believe in ghosts.
  • Applejack
You might wanna rethink your position on that.
  • Applejack
You saw that, right?
  • Rainbow Dash
Run!
  • Fluttershy
Ow... I think I hurt my wing.
  • Rarity
Oh, my dear, I am so sorry! That tapestry is far too heavy. We'll just have to find a smaller one.
  • Fluttershy
Oh, of course.
  • Rarity
Where, pray tell, did you disappear to?
  • Fluttershy
What do you mean?
  • Rarity
While you were struggling under that fabric, the entire wall spun around! You must have activated a secret door.
  • Fluttershy
Oh, I'm sorry.
  • Rarity
I suppose these ruins are chock full of them.
  • Fluttershy
Really?
  • Rarity
Absolutely. We must use the utmost care as we—
  • Rainbow Dash
Okay, so, maybe the legend is true!
  • Applejack
Well, that's why I brought you here! I guess only the most daring pony of all could stay in this castle all night without being scared off.
  • Rainbow Dash
Scared? I'm not scared!
  • Applejack
Well, m-me neither!
  • Rainbow Dash
Then it's settled! Whoever stays in the castle the longest is the Most Daring Pony.
  • Applejack
Deal.
  • Rainbow Dash
But it's gonna take a lot more than some shadowy ghost pony to get me to leave.
  • Applejack
Me too! Humph!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Find anything, Spike?
  • Spike
Uh, nope. Nothing yet.
  • Spike
Aaah!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Angel? What are you doing here?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Whoa! The Journal of the Two Sisters. Maybe this is the book Princess Celestia was talking about!
  • Rainbow Dash
I sure hope you're not afraid of the dark, Applejack!
  • Applejack
I can't say that I am! But even if I was, I'd be at least fifty percent less scared of it than you, Rainbow Dash.
  • Rainbow Dash
I dunno how all that math works because I'm not scared at all!
  • Applejack
Me neither!
  • Applejack
Huh?
  • Rainbow Dash
W-what's the matter? It's just a dark hallway full of... disembodied pony legs.
  • Applejack
Yeah. Nothin'... creepy about that.
  • Rarity
I'm starting to wonder if maybe this castle doesn't want my expertise!
  • Fluttershy
Oh dear. Angel? Rarity, have you seen him?
  • Rarity
I'm not sure he made the trip down with us, dear.
  • Fluttershy
Oh, goodness! We have to find him. An ancient castle is no place for a bunny. He could get hit by falling debris, or the floor could give out under him! Oh! He could be trapped in a dark place with no way out!
  • Rarity
I can only imagine how that might feel. Hmm...
  • Rainbow Dash
Applejack, if you're scared, you can just admit it. You don't need to put your hoof around me.
  • Applejack
Uh, I'm over here.
  • Fluttershy
Rarity! What is it?
  • Rarity
I felt something... alive!
  • Fluttershy
Angel!
  • Rarity
Well, tapestries or no, I have had just about enough of secret passages, mysterious presences, and unappreciative castles!
  • Fluttershy
But we can't leave now, not with Angel lost somewhere in this dangerous old castle! He could be trapped under a crumbling statue, or stuck high in a tower without food or water or any friends at all!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Spike, you've got to hear this. I love to duck behind the paintings, and though the Hall of Hooves still gives her a bit of a fright, the trap door slide is Luna's favorite.
  • Spike
"Hall of Hooves"?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Soon the Organ to the Outside will be finished. I can hardly wait.
  • Spike
What's the "Organ to the Outside"?
  • Twilight Sparkle
I have no idea!
  • Applejack
You hear that?
  • Rainbow Dash
You mean, the creepy sound of a haunted pipe organ?
  • Applejack
Uh... maybe?
  • Rainbow Dash
I don't know what you're talking about!
  • Spike
Uh, Twilight? Did you hear something?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Oh, Spike. Quit being such a scaredy-dragon. This castle is thousands of years old, and half of it was destroyed by Nightmare Moon. Of course it makes strange sounds. It's practically falling apart!
  • Spike
Oh... kay.
  • Fluttershy
Angel! Angel!
  • Rarity
I'm sure we'll find him.
  • Fluttershy
Angel?
  • Fluttershy
Did you find Angel? Is he okay?
  • Rarity
They are perfect! No castle in its right mind could possibly object to my restoring such exquisite works of art.
  • Fluttershy
Oh! They're lovely, Rarity, but... I have to keep looking for Angel. Oh, I hope he doesn't think I've given up on him.
  • Rarity
I'm right behind you! Won't... be... a moment!
  • Applejack
Do you think there's a single room in this castle that isn't filled with terrifying things?
  • Rainbow Dash
Whoa! It's just old pony armor. What's the big deal?
  • Applejack
Yeah! It's not like it's gonna come to life or anything. Right?
  • Applejack
Huh?!
  • Applejack
Whoa-oa!
  • Rarity
Oh!
  • Rarity
Now, you look here, castle! You are very old and very scary! But your wall art is in an atrocious state!
  • Rarity
And there is nothing you can do to keep me from my sacred task of restoration!
  • Rainbow Dash
Uh... Applejack? If you went back to Ponyville, that means I win, right?
  • Fluttershy
Rarity! I know hiding isn't really your sense of humor, but please let this be a joke!
  • Applejack
Rainbow? Hello? I guess if I don't find you, I win by default, right?
  • Rarity
Of all the castles in Equestria, this is by far the most ungrateful!
  • Rarity
Oof!
  • Fluttershy
Angel! Rarity! Oh... I hope you two are together.
  • Rainbow Dash
Haunted statues, creepy armor... Come on, castle! Is that all you got?
  • Rarity
Aah! Aaaah! I was only trying to restore ancient art!
  • Fluttershy
Angel?
  • Fluttershy
AAANGEEEEEL!!!
  • Twilight Sparkle
What in the world is that?!
  • Spike
Oh, you know. Probably just more strange sounds of this old castle falling apart!
  • Twilight Sparkle
No one likes sarcasm, Spike.
  • Spike
What got into them?
  • Fluttershy
It's okay, Angel! You're okay! You're okay!
  • Applejack
Yaaaaah! Shadows everywhere!
  • Fluttershy
Aaangeeeeel!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Alright, everypony, stop!
  • Applejack
Twilight?
  • Fluttershy
Must... save... Ange—! ...Oh.
  • Rainbow Dash
Fluttershy? What are you doing here?
  • Rarity
She's with me...
  • Rarity
Thank you.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Have you all spent the whole night running around, scaring each other?
  • Applejack
Well, that depends.
  • Twilight Sparkle
On what?
  • Rainbow Dash
On whether or not you're the Pony of Shadows.
  • Spike
What's... the Pony of Shadows?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Oh, that's just an old ponies' tale.
  • Spike
Then who's playing... that?
  • Twilight Sparkle
We're going to find out.
  • Twilight Sparkle
The Pony of Shadows!
  • Pinkie Pie
Hey, you guys! Did you know I can totally play the organ? Because I didn't!
  • All
Pinkie?!
  • Pinkie Pie
Check it out!
  • Rainbow Dash
You're the Pony of Shadows?
  • Pinkie Pie
The pony of what?
  • Twilight Sparkle
See? What'd I tell ya?
  • Applejack
I thought you went to ring the school bell all week!
  • Pinkie Pie
Oh, yeah! I only had to ring it for, like, five minutes! They said that was good enough! Eh, can't imagine why...
  • Pinkie Pie
So then, I decided to throw a "finish ringing the school bell" party! But I didn't have any bluebells, and you can't throw a "finish ringing the school bell" party without bluebells, so I went to Everfree Forest to pick some, but it started to get so chilly.
  • Pinkie Pie
I had to wrap myself up in the tarp I was gonna use to gather flowers, and then I saw Fluttershy and Rarity. But they went into the castle before I could invite them to my party. Luckily, I followed them inside so I could help you all with your party!
  • Rarity
What party is that?
  • Pinkie Pie
Uh, the "everypony come to the scary old castle and hide from each other while I play the organ" party?
  • Pinkie Pie
Duh!
  • Rarity
I swear, this is going right back where I found it just as soon as I've returned it to its former glory.
  • Fluttershy
Now don't go running off again! Oh, I can't believe I was so frightened. Guess I let my imagination get the best of me.
  • Applejack
I think we all did.
  • Pinkie Pie
I always let my imagination run away from me! Then it comes back... with cake!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Well, it's good to know that whenever your imagination is getting away from you, a good friend can help you rein it in. And even though I didn't find anything out about the mysterious chest, I'm glad I was here to help all of you.
  • Rarity
You certainly did that, Twilight.
  • Rainbow Dash
Yeah! Why weren't you scared?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Reading Celestia's diary made it hard to be afraid, because I knew what it was like when she and Luna lived here. Knowing something about the past made it easier to deal with my problems in the present, even the scary ones.
  • Twilight Sparkle
I've just thought of a great idea! Why don't we keep a journal, just like the royal pony sisters?
  • Fluttershy
All of us?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Sure! That way we can learn from each other! And maybe some day, other ponies will read it and learn something, too!
  • Rarity
What a splendid idea!
  • Applejack
I know what my first entry will be! "Dear Diary, I'm glad Granny Smith's legend wasn't true."
  • Rainbow Dash
Me too!
  • Pinkie Pie
Me three! Because that means you two are still tied for Most Daring Pony!
  • Spike
Heh, Shadow Ponies... How ridiculous is that?
