"The fashion really interests me," said Twilight.

The Rainbooms looked at her with mixed expressions from their various positions on and around the portal, none more excited than Rarity. "I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to hear that, Twilight!

Rainbow Dash's analogue came out looking—"

The new arrival looked to her counterpart. "Hi, Pinkie!"

The local Pinkie returned the enormous smile of the girl clad in the exact same outfit. "Hi, Pinkie!"

Author's Note:

NRPG stands for Neighponese Role-Playing Game.

And, as it says on the group page, Pinkie is a universal constant.
