You find Fluttershy puttering around outside, feeding the myriad animals that rely on her for food and shelter. When she sees you, she waves timidly and greets you with a quiet “Hello.” She flaps over to you and asks, “What brings you out here, Carrot Top? Usually you only come on Fridays, and I still have plenty of carrots for the little bunnies...” The small white rabbit standing next to her frowns and kicks her hoof. Fluttershy jumps, then sheepishly adds, “...but it’s okay with Angel if you’ve got some extras for him this week.”

You shake your head. “That’s not why I’m here, Fluttershy. Applebloom vanished last night, and Twilight thinks she may have been foalnapped!” Fluttershy starts at the news, and you quickly add, “But don’t worry, she probably just got lost playing in the forest or something. Applejack, Big Mac, and Rainbow Dash are all out in the Everfree Forest looking for her. If you’re available, they could definitely use some more help.”

Fluttershy nods. “I was almost done with the noontime feedings. Angel, could you be a dear and finish up for me?” Angel rolls his eyes and sighs dramatically, but gives her a grudging thumbs-up. “Thank you, you’re such a sweetie!” Fluttershy kisses him on the top of his head, making the little bunny blush furiously. He scowls and hops off to work.

As she’s about to leave, Fluttershy turns back to you and says, “You said Twilight thinks Applebloom was foalnapped. Do you know why?” She shivers. “Is there something... dangerous?”

You pat her on the shoulder reassuringly. “Oh, she’s just been reading too many books. She was talking about something called boggies. Don’t worry, it was all stuff out of old bedtime stories.”

“Oh. Okay.” Fluttershy doesn’t look very convinced. She scuffs her hooves a moment, then announces loudly (as loudly as she ever speaks, anyways), “Well, I’d better go help with the search!” Then she leans in close and whispers in your ear, “But, um, if you really need help, you could go into my cottage and say ‘Danneltuft’ aloud three times. But please, only do that if you really think it’s boggies. Oh, but I didn’t tell you any of that!” And with that, she hurries off towards the forest.

Well, that was certainly odd. What did she mean “If you really think it’s boggies?” And what should you do now?
