Nestled underneath the bowling alley in Ponyville, lies a little shop called Arcadia's Arcade. It is owned by the Equestrian Video Game Championship Winner Arcadia Anne Fevõre, also known as Arcade Fever.
As a teenager Arcadia was a founding member of and participant in the first ever video game tournament that was to be held in her hometown of Ponyville. She won the competition hooves down against the then reigning champ Short Fuse and gained some small amount of notoriety in the blossoming gaming circuit. After a few long years of touring cities and gaming conventions, Arcadia longed to settle down. So she bought a small building in a strip-mall connected to the bowling alley and there is where she set up her dream, her arcade.
Shortly before the arcade's grand opening, Short Fuse found the place and raided the high scores because she had a bad day and wanted somepony else to have one too. She had gotten all but one of the high scores set in the Challenge Corner of the arcade, Arcadia saw this as a slap to the face and issued a challenge to the pegusass (one part mule, one part pegasus, all sass.). The battle was intense, but in the end, they emerged newly forged friends.
Here, in the aftermath of a Pinkie fueled grand opening party we find them tucked away into Arcadia's back office, the two friends enjoying some simple magic.
