“How do you like your precious technology now that it’s been infected by a special virus called the Rainbow Virus? You foals didn’t even know that you had it all these years! It was just sitting there waiting for one of you to unknowingly activate it and cause your computers’ own demise! However, little do any of you realize that this isn’t my real plan at all!” announced Nightmare Moon. *she laughs* [Elsewhere in Ponyville…]
“Wow, this place is very different from our side,” remarked Pinkie Pie.
“Look at all the new ponies, dahling,” said Rainbow Dash.
“They look different,” said Minty.
“I bet they’ll make great friends,” said Pinkie Pie. *Applejack sees them and walks over*
“Well howdy do there and welcome to Ponyville,” said Applejack shaking Pinkie Pie’s hoof.
“We just thought we’d drop by and see just what you all were like,” giggled Minty.
“Absolutely, dahling. What a lovely town you have here,” added Rainbow Dash.
“Thanks kindly. Y’all picked a fine time to be here as we’ve got all kinds of activities round here. Name’s Applejack, the pleasure’s all mine,” said Applejack.
“Hello, Applejack, I’m Rainbow Dash,” said Rainbow Dash.
“What in tarnation? How could y’all be Rainbow Dash if our Rainbow Dash isn’t here?” asked Applejack puzzled.
“What’s going on?” asked Twilight noticing the commotion.
“This here pony claims to be Rainbow Dash and somehow she lost her wings,” explained Applejack.
“Well she does look like our Rainbow Dash, but I guess I’m confused,” replied Twilight.
“Let me get this straight, you ponies have a Rainbow Dash here? What’s she like?” asked Pinkie Pie.
“Well she’s a pegasus pony and is the fastest flier in all of Equestria,” stated Twilight.
“Now wait just a pony-pickin’ minute, there’s only one Rainbow Dash and that’s in our part of Ponyville so yours must be some kind of imposter,” protested Applejack.
“I’m no imposter, dahling, I was here before Ponyville was split into the two parts it is now,” said Rainbow Dash.
“We even have a birthday book to prove it,” added Pinkie Pie. *she shows them the book*
“Wow, I guess there are two Rainbow Dash ponies. At least we can tell them apart,” said Twilight.
“Won’t we need some kinda name to help the corral here understand who’s who?” asked Applejack.
“Yeah, you’re right. *She heads over to the podium* Everypony, can I have your attention? *The others turn to see what’s going on* We have a slight problem here. There are two ponies here in this side of Ponyville named Rainbow Dash, although at the moment only one is here. I’ve come up with a solution for it and you all will have to pay attention so you don’t get confused. You all know our Rainbow Dash has rainbow lightning bolt for a cutie mark. This one has a rainbow with clouds for her cutie mark. That’s how you’ll tell them apart if you can’t see our Rainbow Dash’s wings. Fortunately, this second Rainbow Dash has no wings and I guess doesn’t look much like us at all but you all still needed to have things set in a logical way and that’s what I have done here. I’m hoping that there will not be any confusion when or if our Rainbow Dash comes back. Thank you,” announced Twilight.
“Um Twilight, she ain’t the only double here, we have a Pinkie Pie too,” reminded Applejack.*Twilight picks up a bullhorn*
“Sorry, one more announcement. We have a second Pinkie Pie here too but it seems that this one is much different from ours yet their cutie marks are the same. We all need to remember that ours has a completely pink mane and tail while this other one has light pink and white mane and tail. I’m really hoping that won’t be a problem with you all. Thank you again for your time,” said Twilight. *she puts down the bullhorn*
“What is this device in your hoof? Why is its loudness through the roof?” asked Zecora.
“It’s a bullhorn and I don’t know how to decrease the volume,” explained Twilight.
“What a ridiculous name! The pony that called it that must be insane,” remarked Zecora.
“I’m sure there’s a logical reason for it, Zecora I just don’t know what that is,” said Twilight.
“One thing’s for sure is that everyone in Manehatten heard it,” said Applejack.
“I barely know how it works. Guess now isn’t too bad of a time. *she looks at the bullhorn* Oh there’s a little dial there so I can adjust how loud it is,” said Twilight. *she turns the dial to a lower setting*
“My ears will be ringing from that racket,” complained Spike.
“Sorry, Spike, I’ve just now figured out how it works,” said Twilight.
“I should hope so. By the way, I found this map along my way over here,” said Spike.
“Pon-Evil, a map of uncharted territory. This is perfect! Alright, let’s head out,” said Twilight.
