One of Twilight's spells messed up and turned a piece of candy corn into a mare.

Explaining to Pinkie and meeting new people

Back at Sugarcube Corner, Twilight had just finished explaining about what had happened and why she and Fluttershy had a daughter. It had slightly startled Twilight that she already knew, but it was Pinkie.
"So it's a spell?" Pinkie asked. Twilight nodded.

"When does it wear off?" Pinkie asked.

"I didn't think of that, actually. But the way Celestia was talking about it, it sounded like it didn't," Twilight said.

"Ok, that makes sense. But how did Star Swirl the Bearded make this? It creates life!" Pinkie said.

"I'm not sure, but it is Star Swirl the Bearded. He was on of the most powerful unicorns , besides from Celestia and Luna, of course," Twilight said.

"Yeah, good point. So, should I introduce Candy Burn to the Cutie Mark Crusaders? She didn't have a cutie mark," Pinkie asked.

"Sure, but run it by Fluttershy first, she has the majority of the DNA in Candy Burn," said Twilight.

"Ok, fair enough. HEY FLUTTERSHY! COME OVER HERE!" Pinkie yelled. Fluttershy turned and started to walk to them.

"Is it ok if I introduce Candy Burn to the Cutie Mark Crusaders?" Pinkie asked when she was close enough to hear.

"Sure! I see no reason why she shouldn't meet them!" Fluttershy said. Applejack walked over.

"Hey, Fluttershy, Candy Burn should meet ma little sis' and her friends!" Applejack said.

"Actually, that was what Pinkie was just asking about! She wanted to introduce Candy Burn to them," Fluttershy said.

"Really? Nice," Applejack said, turning to Pinkie.

"Is there a specific time that you want Candy Burn to meet the Cutie Mark Crusaders?" Fluttershy asked.

"Why not today?" Pinkie asked.

"Wow, they were definitely interesting," Candy Burn said. It was almost night, and Candy Burn had just finished meeting the Cutie Mark Crusaders. They had asked questions about why her ears were striped, and when she wasn't able to answer that, Fluttershy said that it was something that her "parents" had wanted her to try, simply because it looked cool. Fortunately, the Cutie Mark Crusaders agreed that it looked cool, so they were safe. They also noticed that Candy Burn didn't have a cutie mark, and got Candy Burn to do a bunch of things that might get her one. They also tried to get her to join the Cutie Mark Crusaders, and Candy Burn said that she would think about it.

"Yeah, they may be a bit annoying at first, but they grow on you after a while. Plus, it's actually kind of funny seeing them do some of the stuff that they do," said Rainbow Dash.

"Good to know. How often do they do something like this?" Candy Burn asked.

"Out side of school, a lot of the time. Sometimes even inside school. Actually, that's were they got their cutie mark," said Rainbow Dash.

"Huh. And from the way they were talking about it, I thought nothing exiting happened in school," Candy Burn said.

"Normally, yes, but at this school, a ton of exiting things happen," said Rainbow Dash.

"Like what?" Candy Burn asked.

"You get to rebuild it every so often," Rainbow Dash said.

"Why?" Candy Burn asked.

"Mostly because of damage of the various invasions this town has. Speaking of which, there hasn't been one in a while. I wonder when it's going to happen, and what's going to invade," Rainbow Dash said, looking at the Everfree forest.
