Epilogue: An Imaginary Talk

Princess Luna sat on the throne, somewhat bored, but not as much as other nights. She looked down at her night chamberlain, a dark grey unicorn mare with a dark blue mane and tail, white horn-rimmed glasses, and a silver dotted line on her flanks, "Dotted Line, have We any petitioners tonight?"

The chamberlain leafed through her notes and replied, "There is the Caribou ambassador; he wishes to continue discussing about the trade agreement he spoke with your sister two days ago, and…no, you don't have any petitioners tonight, Your Highness."

"Well, it appeareth that We have some time to observe the dream realm tonight. 'Tis a much more efficient way of seeing petitioners who can't journey to Canterlot."

"Actually, Your Highness, you don't have petitioners," she looked closely at her notes, "but you do have two mares requesting a private audience."

"A private audience? That is quite unusual. Who maketh the request?"

Dotted Line's eyes widened a bit when she read the names, and then replied, "I…I think you might know them, Your Highness."

"We do? Well, bid them to enter, then."

Luna turned to the unicorn guards at the main doors, who then used their magic to open them.

The two mares stepped in, slowly, with their heads and ears down.

One was pink with a dark pink mane and tail, and had a cutie mark of three balloons.

The other was sky blue, with a rainbow mane and tail, and had a cutie mark of a cloud shooting a rainbow lightning bolt.

Luna raised her head and exclaimed. "Two of the Knights of Harmony! Thou wishest for a private audience with Us?"

Dame Rainbow Dash raised her eyes a bit, and replied forlornly, "Yes, Your Highness. Pinkie Pie and I…want to talk to you about what happened on the last Nightmare Night in Ponyville…"

Meanwhile, somewhere in Ponyville…

"WHAT? My allowance is being suspended? My jewellery is being auctioned off?!"

"Of course, sweetheart! You didn't expect me to pay for all those silly bids you and your friends did, right? I knew all those nasty rumours of you and your friend being bullies couldn't have been true. Instead, you have shown your true talent, and you are shining like a real diamond tiara. And what's more, I never knew you could be so generous, why, even more generous than the Element of Generosity herself! I just knew that one day you'd put all your bits and jewellery to good use! And all in benefit of orphans, many of which don't have their cutie marks yet, too!"

Filthy Rich smiled and patted his daughter's withers.

And his daughter galloped off to her room, crying in her usual spoiled brat tantrum.

Alone…
