“So you think your magic will be up to my standards Twilight Sparkle? Well then neither you nor your foolish friends have any idea what you’re up against. After all, I have some friends of my own that I can’t wait for you to meet and you’ll be meeting them in a way different than normal for once their gift is unleashed, you’ll all have your hooves full trying to remove it,” said Nightmare Moon. *she laughs again* [In Ponyville’s school with Ms Hackney…]
“Before I start today’s lesson, I have great news. A generous pony has given our internet service a boost and therefore should be protected against any future bad antivirus sites. Now then when you deal with Algebraic expressions, as long as the letter next to the number is the same, you can add, or subtract them and your answer will include the same letter you were given in the problem. For example, look at this problem. 2x + 3x. The answer will be 5x. All you are doing is adding and the x is added to the answer. Any questions? *Starlight raises her hoof*
“What if the letters are different?” asked Starlight.
“Then the problem is left the way it is. Let’s take a look at another problem. Notice that there is another letter next to the x. You cannot add these two because both parts of this problem do not have the other letter even though both have the x. I advise all of you to really pay attention over the next few weeks as we’ll be adding to this later on. To make sure you’re ready for the next part, I’m passing out a sheet of paper with problems like what you saw today as your homework I’ll go over it tomorrow. *The clock chimes 3PM* See you later everyone! *she waves goodbye as the students rush out* [Elsewhere…]
“Did you guys hear about the new ponies, dahling?” asked Rainbow Dash.
“No, what are they like, Rainbow Dash?” asked Pinkie Pie.
“I hope they’re as cool as we are,” replied Sunny-Daze
“I’ve heard they’re a new breed of pony, with different body shapes and hairstyles,” explained Rainbow Dash.
“Maybe we should go see them and make new friends?” suggested Pinkie Pie.
“Sounds like a good idea, dahling,” replied Rainbow Dash.
“Cool, we’d get to have more fun than ever,” added Sunny-Daze.
“I hope they know how to make tasty treats,” said Sweetberry.
“Especially if they’re green,” giggled Minty.
“Then it’s settled, let’s go make some new friends!” proclaimed Pinkie Pie. *They head out* [Elsewhere…]
“Well tarnation, what’s gonna be our battle plan to bringin’ down Nightmare Moon, Twilight?” asked Applejack.
“I’m not sure, Applejack. As much as I’d love to have us use the Elements of Harmony again, I’m sure that’s what she wants us to do and besides, the others are away at the moment,” replied Twilight.
“I, the great and powerful Trixie can stop this Nightmare Moon,” announced Trixie.
“Y’all can’t even stop yappin’ though,” muttered Applejack.
“There’s no telling what Nightmare Moon would do to all the animals I take care of and I can’t even bare to think how she’d treat Angel.
“We could help you guys,” said (Scootaloo).
“Oh no ya don’t, y’all wouldn’t even give her a scare let alone take her down,” replied Applejack.
“It is sweet of you all to try and help but Applejack is right, you’re all much too small to take her on,” added Twilight.
“We ain’t just any ponies you know,” retorted Apple Bloom.
“Of course, we’re baby ponies that aren’t a match for even getting our cutie marks let alone some evil pony like her,” replied (Sweetie-Belle).
“Oh just aren’t you three adorable,” remarked Sweetheart.
“We’re not adorable, we’re the Cutie Mark Crusaders,” protested (Scootaloo).
“Of course you are,” replied Sweetheart sweetly and sarcastically.
“Cutie Mark…..Crusaders?” questioned Bright Eyes and Starlight.
“We’re on a mission to find out what our cutie marks will be, the tattoos on our hips,” explained Apple Bloom.
“Never heard them called that before,” remarked Melody.
“Well I truly wish you the best of luck on your mission,” said Sweetheart.
“No such luck yet but we’re not giving up, not until we get our cutie marks!” said the CMCs.
