LEGO Equestria Girls 3

Prologue

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon in the region of Canterlot City in the Lego World, a certain group of close friends were enjoying a picnic in the park. Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Fluttershy, and their new friend Sunset Shimmer relaxed as they helped themselves to some snacks and idly chatted amongst themselves about minor subjects from their everyday lives. They had set up their picnic in City Park between the central path and a statue of a horse rearing on its hind legs. These girls knew that this seemingly ordinary statue was special because it was here that the interdimensional portal to Equestria was located.

By the time the group of friends were finishing up and preparing to pack up, the late afternoon sun was nearing the horizon and causing the clear sky to change color from light blue to brilliant orange.

Sunset let out a content sigh and remarked, “I have to say, girls, it sure is nice to finally be able to just have a good time with all of you without having to worry about saving the world.”

“Most certainly indeed,” agreed Rarity as she checked herself in a handheld mirror. “As much of an honor it is to be part of the LEGO Team, I would much rather spend most of my days living the life of an ordinary citizen.”

“I’m really glad we haven’t been called away on any missions since we defeated the sirens a few months ago,” added Fluttershy as she helped Applejack fold the blanket and put it away in the basket.

Once everyone had finished packing up, Pinkie Pie asked, “So where to next?”

“We’re headin’ over to Applejack’s place for band practice,” reminded Rainbow Dash. “Celestia and Kjeld will be in town tomorrow, and since our meeting with them will include playing a few songs, we might as well get some last-minute practice done while we still can.” She waved for her friends to follow as she headed for the nearby path and excitedly added, “C’mon! Let’s go!”

The six minifigs walked together back onto the main path. But while most of them headed down that path, Sunset held back at the nearest bench and gazed back at the statue/portal.

Applejack soon noticed that Sunset was no longer walking with them, so she stopped and turned back to her as she asked, “You comin’ Sunset?”

Sunset glanced back at her friends and smiled as she replied, “I’ll catch up in a bit.”

As the other girls continued down the path, Sunset sat down on the bench that faced the statue. She opened her magic journal to the first blank page, pulled out a pen, and began writing.

Dear Princess Twilight,

How’s life treating you in Equestria? Any cool new magic spells? It’s been relatively quiet here in the Lego World since we defeated the sirens. We still pony up when we get creative or play music, which Rainbow Dash just loves to show off. But I still can’t grasp what it’s all about. I would love to hear what you think about it when you get a sec.

Your friend, Sunset Shimmer.

As Sunset’s attention was focused on her book, she failed to notice someone emerge from behind some bushes near the statue. It was a mysterious person who was wearing a standard astronaut suit. As this stranger began to carefully approach the statue, they pulled out some kind of handheld scanner. The mystery astronaut slowly walked around all sides of the statue while aiming the scanner in all directions.

When the stranger came around to the front side of the statue, the scanner began to detect some very strong readings. The mysterious astronaut slowly turned around and quickly determined the strongest readings were coming from the front side of the statue’s pedestal. Curious, the astronaut reached a hand up to touch the surface. Even though it felt solid, it appeared to ripple around their hand like the surface of a pond while also giving off a faint glow of light.

Sunset was in the middle of reading through the message she had just written when she noticed a slight glow. She glanced up and saw that stranger in an astronaut suit placing a hand on the portal while aiming some unknown device at it. Concerned, she immediately called out, “Hey! What are you doing?!”

The mysterious astronaut quickly spun around and faced Sunset. Although the stranger had not intended to aim the scanner at this girl, they did notice that it was still displaying similarly strong readings. Despite this unexpected discovery, the astronaut knew that, now that someone had spotted them, it was time to leave, so they immediately turned and fled for the nearest way out of the park.

“Wait! Stop!” Sunset called out as she quickly stood up and began chasing after that strange astronaut while carrying her book. The golden visor on that astronaut’s helmet had prevented her from seeing this person’s face, so she had no clue at all who she was chasing.

As soon as they left the park, the stranger just continued across the street without any hesitation. Sunset attempted to do the same, but was forced to stop on the sidewalk as a car passed by. She quickly glanced around to make sure there were no other oncoming vehicles before she resumed the chase.

Sunset made it across the street just in time to watch the stranger head into an alleyway. But when she arrived at that alleyway just a few seconds later, it was completely deserted, despite the fact that there seemed to be absolutely no other way out of this lane. The mysterious stranger in an astronaut suit had somehow completely disappeared without a trace.

Sunset narrowed her eyes and rubbed her chin as she muttered, “Who was that?”


In an unknown location, the mysterious astronaut was now suddenly in a large enclosed room with no one else around. Now that this mystery person was in a safe and secure place, she removed her helmet and set it down on a small table nearby before letting out a sigh of relief. Her now-exposed head had lavender skin, had a hair piece that was tied back in a large bun and was colored dark blue with a violet and magenta streak down the middle, and had a pair of black thick-rimmed glasses around her violet eyes.

She was Twilight Sparkle of the Lego World.

Twilight approached a row of doors on one side of the room and went into the room past one of them. She reemerged a moment later, now changed out of her astronaut suit and instead wearing a white lab coat with a light blue shirt underneath. She then went across the room and went through the only doorway on that side, leading her into a hallway.

Twilight walked past half a dozen doors until she arrived at the one at the very end. She opened that door into a room and flicked on the light switch. On one side of this room were some computers, monitoring equipment, and data-gathering machines of all kinds. On the other side was a large board on the wall that displayed various notes, pictures of strange sightings, and a map of Canterlot City with City Park circled in red.

Twilight walked over to the desk underneath this board and pulled out a more highly detailed map of City Park. She highlighted the exact site she had just been investigating, then drew a large question mark next to it before posting that map to the board.

With her latest findings now accounted for, Twilight set her scanner down on the desk and gathered up some tools. Now that she knew what she was looking for, it was time to upgrade her scanning device. She worked long into the night, spending many hours to dismantle her old scanner and rewire all of its components into something smaller and much more efficient. The casing she used for her new device was — as far as Lego pieces go — about the size of a coin, and could open and close like a clamshell. She also made sure to test out every component as she added them in to ensure that every part was working properly.

Finally, her work was completed. She closed her new scanning device and switched it on. The center displayed a wavering magenta star, while a series of magenta lights appeared to revolve along the circumference of the device. Twilight had a wide smile on her face as she observed this final test of her latest invention.

She was ready to start gathering some real data, and nothing was going to hold her back.
