Filk 1: Art of the Forge

Plate by plate, riveting together...
Twilight's vest, kneading out the pattern rune by rune.
Making sure the iron folds nicely.
Setting up the magic to attune.
Always gotta keep in mind my charge.
Making sure the channel's nice and large.
I'm forging Twilight's plate...

Drop by drop, filling in the molds.
Steel neckline, don't you know a weld in time saves nine?
Make so like earth is her squire.
Even though a lot it may require.
I'll work in all of these details.
For it will appear in tales.
It's Applejack's new plate...

Forging's complex, for Pinkie Pie something chaos.
For Fluttershy these effects.
Blend power and style.
[To Opalescence] Do you think it checks?

Something light, perhaps quite speedy...
Hook and ring, just perfect for her wing!
Making sure it guards lungs and heart.
Don't forget the gorget for the neck.
Even though it doesn't cover much.
Rainbow won't get in a clutch.
I'm forging Rainbow's plate.

Mold by mold, rune by rune.
Harmonizing, is this tune.
Plate by plate, granting strength.
Drop by drop, the right length.
And that's the art of the forge!
