Stars and Stripes
[At the Ice Cream Shop…]
“Did you guys hear the news?” asked Patch running up.
“What news?” asked Starlight.
“We have new ponies coming to Pudgyville,” said Patch. *the group rush out to see*
“There are two ponies and they’re dressed with our latest fashion here with the belts,” said Melody.
“Hi, I’m Bright Eyes, what are your names?” said Bright Eyes.
“I’m Star Swirl,” said Star Swirl. We saw the belts you guys had and when we got here, we found ones for ourselves. Mine is an asteroid belt. Get it? *the ponies laugh*
“Good one, Star Swirl,” said Starlight.
“Thank you,” said Star Swirl.
“They call me Starbeam,” said Starbeam. We’re best friends and are looking to be astronomers when we grow up. I have a shooting star belt.
“Nice shirt, Star Swirl,” said Bright Eyes.
“Thanks, it’s really fitting for fat ponies,” said Star Swirl. By the way, who are all your friends?”
“I’m Melody,” said Melody.
“Starlight,” said Starlight.
“Sweetheart’s the pink-haired white pony,” said Bright Eyes.
“I’m Clover,” said Clover. You both seem nice.
“Wanna come to the Ice Cream Shop?” asked Starlight. It’s just down the street from here. [At the Ice Cream Shop entrance…]
“New ponies, dahling?” asked Rainbow Dash.
“We know Starbeam,” said Pinkie Pie. She was helping us with the Princess Promenade several years back.
“I remember doing that,” said Starbeam. I don’t remember whom I was helping with but I remember Zipzee the Breezie pony was there and she was allergic to flowers but that didn’t stop her from smelling them. It was fun helping out I think.
“Wow, new pony friends,” said Skywishes. I saw you two with the rest of my friends and thought I’d come and say hi, you know to welcome you in, get you with my friends, oh you know what I mean.
“We do,” said Star Swirl and Starbeam together.
“Well come on, let’s go inside,” said Starbeam.
“First sundaes for each of you are on me,” said Starlight.
“So what else is there to do here?” asked Star Swirl.
“Well we have a school but I’m not sure there’s enough room for you two,” said Bright Eyes. After all, we did get new classmates earlier this year.
“I see,” said Star Swirl.
“Are there big events here?” asked Starbeam.
“Not too long ago, we had a news van show up to interview us about the latest news of fat being in,” said Starlight. Unfortunately, we have no idea when or if they’ll come back.
“Skywishes also showed us the dance in the clouds,” said Melody. That was awesome.
“Dance……?” questioned Star Swirl.
“……..in the clouds?” finished Starbeam equally puzzled.
“It’s great fun,” said Pinkie Pie.
“Truly marvelous, dahling,” said Rainbow Dash.
“Definitely the very brightest,” added Sunny-Daze.
“Can we learn it sometime?” asked Starbeam. It sounds great from what you guys have said.
“Yeah, it’d be like being in space I think,” said Star Swirl. That would be out of this world.
“Sure, Skywishes and I can teach you,” said Twinkle Twirl.
“Well we have to go home now,” said Starbeam. We’ll see you guys later. *they leave*
“Ponies into outer space? Now that’s my kind of friends,” said Patch. They seem like they’d be great to go on adventures.
“I think they’ll be fun to have around,” said Melody. They really know how to spice up anyone’s day.
