One of Us
When Lyra was a filly, she had an imaginary friend like so many other fillies her age. Lyra's friend wasn't a pony though, but a strange bipedal creature from a land called Earth.
Like other fillies, she eventually outgrows her friend and moves on with her life: making real friends and learning music.
Unlike other fillies however, Lyra's friend returns one day with stories of wars and magic in his lands that had kept him from visiting. Many fantasies of these strange humans return to Lyra when she learns that her friend might not be so imaginary. What will she do with this knowledge?
And how with all the other ponies who can't see this creature react to the changes in Lyra?
