The Sugar Plump Pony
[At the MLP Tales gang's school...]
``Well students, tonight is Halloween and as you can tell, there will be a Halloween party tonight. Come dressed up as whatever you'd like but until then , you'll have to bare a lesson on History with Martini the King, whom was all about taking charge in making everything fair for all ponies. You see, during his times, ponies were actually separated by gender. You had to only go in areas where the signs told you. As an example, if this school were done that way, girls would be on the left and boys on the right, which of course, would make this a rather lopsided classroom given the low amount of boys here. Martini wasn't alone in this battle because Rosey Pony made a bold move to disobey the law in which a male pony would have to give up a seat to a female pony if there wasn't enough room on the bus and she got sent to jail for it,'' said Hackney,
``Wow, good thing it's not like that today, especially since we're friends with at least two of the boys here,'' said Melody.
``Sorry Lancer but I guess you aren't friends with them,'' teased Teddy.
``She means you Teddy,'' snapped Ace.
``Oh dear, it wouldn't be good for me to be without Teddy because no one would take care of him,'' realized Sweetheart.
``Martini did work hard and it was his courage that allowed all ponies to come together and not have anyone judge them for it. Any questions?'' added Hackney before the school clock chimed 3PM and the class rushed out. [Outside...]
``So what're you guys being for the party tonight?'' asked Bright Eyes.
``I want mine to be a......a.....surprise,'' said Clover.
``I know what I'm being, a famous rock star,'' stated Melody.
``I don't know yet myself. I'll need the time between now and then to think about it,'' answered Starlight.
``None of my costumes from last year truly fit me so you wouldn't really know who I was trying to be,'' protested Sweetheart.
``You could be someone that's your body size like Stripes, a special zebra that traveled with another pony to save a princess far away,'' suggested Melody.
``I hadn't truly thought about dressing up as someone as plump as me. I'll have to really think about it too,'' pondered Sweetheart.
``That reminds me about all of us not completely looking like the character we're dressing up as because our bellies stick out. It might be best to follow Melody's suggestion,'' said Starlight. [At the party that night...]
``Great costume Clove. What are you?'' asked Bright Eyes.
``I was trying to be the Sugar Plum Pony but I guess the costume is a bit small,'' explained Clover.
``Guess that makes you the Sugar Plump Pony now,'' giggled Bright Eyes.
``What a party, dahlings,'' said Rainbow Dash.
``Minty, are you dressed as a pickle?'' asked Pinkie Pie.
``It's a green candy cane, silly,'' answered Minty before giggling.
``Sweetheart looks great as a nurse,'' remarked Teddy.
``You truly think so, Teddy?'' asked Sweetheart.
``What could be better than a nurse pony with some extra padding?'' questioned Teddy.
``Thank you so much, Teddy,'' replied Sweetheart.
``Where are our new friends?'' asked Starlight.
``I hope they know about the party,'' added Bright Eyes. [With Twilight and her gang...]
``What is this Halloween everypony keeps talking about?'' asked Twilight.
``Heck if I know. There's nopony for miles it looks like,'' answered Applejack.
``Sounds like something where ponies tell jokes,'' said (Pinkie Pie).
``If that's true, then that's not a celebration for me,'' remarked (Rarity).
``There they are. Guys, come inside for the Halloween party,'' called Starlight.
``What's Halloween?'' asked Applejack.
``Ponies earn candy by going to houses but of course here, we're having a party to celebrate,'' explained Bright Eyes.
``We've only heard it called Nightmare Night so I guess they must be the same thing,'' concluded Twilight.
``Yeehaw, come on everypony!'' called Applejack before she and the others run inside. [Back inside...]
``Twilight and friends, good of you to come. All that awaits is nothing but fun,'' stated Zecora.
``Happy Halloween or Nightmare Night everypony!'' declared Applejack.
