As you walk through Ponyville, the first ponies you notice are the ones that really stand out. One of them is probably pink, and every time you see her, she makes you smile. One has a rainbow mane and is the best flyer you've ever seen. One is proper, and sometimes a bit stuck-up, but more generous then anypony you know. Another is a farmer, honest until the end. One is really shy, and the kindest pony you've ever met. And the last one lives in a library. She's actually Equestria's newest princess. And those are the ponies you think of. The ones that stand out.

But you never noticed us. It's okay, though, we don't need to be noticed, we like being lost in the crowd. But every time you saw that pony brushing past you or singing in the chorus or sitting in the crowd, it was one of us. One of the background.
